What is in this leaflet
Sustanon is without question the most popular testosterone mixture on the planet. Where most testosterone compounds are single ester compounds, Sustanon 250 is comprised of four distinct esters; four distinct testosterone compounds conjoined into one.
While the original intent of Sustanon was for Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT), this can be an excellent choice for performance enhancing athletes; after all, Sustanon 250 is merely testosterone. Even so, due to the mixture of four varying esters, if levels are to remain not only stable but also peaked at all times, despite large esters being a part of the compound every other day injections are normally recommended.
In many ways, there is a lot of crossover as it pertains to TRT and performance based supplementation of Sustanon, but in this case, were referring to supraphysiological doses. In a TRT plan, we are supplementing with testosterone in-order to bring our levels back to normal, but with performance the idea is to increase them beyond what can normally be achieved in-order for more testosterone to be available to do what testosterone does best. In any case, when it comes to the performance benefits of Sustanon 250, they can largely be broken down into three categories, bulking, cutting and overall enhancement.
• Bulking: with supplementation and adequate calories present, you will be able to gain more lean mass as well as see your strength increase. Further, due to
the metabolic enhancing properties of testosterone, you will be able to do so with less body-fat accumulation that normally accompanies mass gaining phases.
• Cutting: when it comes to the cutting cycle, many often think of other steroids before they think of Sustanon or any testosterone compound, but exogenous testosterone can be essential to a successful plan. Through use, you will ensure you preserve as much lean tissue as possible while calories are restricted, and this is invaluable. When we diet, in-order to lose body-fat our caloric intake must be at a deficit level; we must burn more calories than we
consume in-order to burn body-fat. As a result, lean tissue is often lost, but Sust will protect it, and the more lean tissue you hold onto the more fat you’ll
burn. Couple this with testosterones metabolic enhancing properties and you’re a fat burning machine.
• Overall Enhancement: regardless of your purpose of use, bulking, cutting or to simply enhance athletic erformance, you will find Sustanon is one of the most versatile steroidal compounds on earth. Regardless of your purpose of use, your muscular endurance will be enhanced as will your overall rate of recovery, and those two traits alone make this a steroid worthy of consideration. When we look at all these benefits and how testosterone affects the body in its every day functional sense, the benefits of sustanon 250 as you can see are truly vast.
Functions & Traits
As stated above, Sustanon is a four part testosterone mixture; specifically it is comprised of Testosterone Propionate, Testosterone Phenylpropionate,
Testosterone Isocaproate and Testosterone Decanoate. Through this mixture, the Propionate and Phenylpropionate esters represent the small esters and will provide fast acting testosterone benefits while the Decanoate ester, a truly massive ester will ensure the benefits are long lasting; the Isocaproate ester fills the role in the middle.
Of course, its not enough for these esters to be conjoined together, in-order for Sustanon 250 to exist they must be conjoined together in a precise manner; otherwise, it is not Sustanon 250.
The precise composition of Sustanon is as follows:
• 30mg/ml Testosterone Propionate
• 60mg/ml Testosterone Phenylpropionate
• 60mg/ml Testosterone Isocaproate
• 100mg/ml Testosterone Decanoate
If you come across a product claiming to be Sustanon, if it is not comprised exactly as listed above, if it carries varying esters or even the same esters at different doses it is not Sustanon 250; the above is what defines and separates this testosterone form. As a testosterone compound, in many ways everything that can be said of all single ester testosterone compounds can be said of Sustanon; in the end, it all comes down to personal preference. At any rate, as a pure testosterone compound, Sustanon carries an anabolic and androgenic rating of 100 in both categories, and is a highly versatile steroidal hormone. Identical to the testosterone you naturally produce, Sustanon 250 carries all the sexually related traits and plays intrinsic roles on our sexual and physical health and to a degree even our general state of mind and overall well-being.
A compound that has the ability to greatly enhance protein synthesis, this is important as protein is the building block of muscle tissue and synthesis represent
the rate by-which cells build proteins. Further, Sust as its often called will enhance nitrogen retention in the muscle tissue; all lean muscle tissue is comprised of 16% nitrogen, and the more we retain the more anabolic we remain; our anabolic atmosphere is enhanced. While these two factors are primary and important traits, Sust is not done yet.
Often ignored but truly valuable is this hormones ability to increase the production and release of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1). IGF-1 is highly anabolic, a peptide hormone produced by all human beings and it plays important roles revolving around our total recovery; in-fact, IGF-1 will affect nearly every cell in the human body.
Enhanced protein synthesis, nitrogen retention and IGF-1 are all important factors, but Sustanon continues to not disappoint. Through supplementation, red blood cell count is increased, and as red blood cells carry oxygen to and through the blood this results in greater blood oxygenation. Then we have glucocorticoid suppression; simply put, the suppression and reduction of stress hormones. These nasty hormones, cortisol being the most well-known are in many ways the opposite of anabolic hormones in that they destroy muscle tissue and promote fat gain;
Sustanon will see such hormones suppressed.
A hormone that aromatizes heavily, like all testosterone compounds Sustanon 250 can lead to adverse estrogen effects. Further, due to its heavy androgenic activity, this is a steroid that cannot be recommended to women or virilization will occur.
Absolutely, women need testosterone, and they can suffer from low testosterone, but if therapeutic treatment is needed a single ester compound is easier to control. As for performance enhancement, the doses necessary to promote such performance will always lead to some level of virilization and on this basis other steroids must be chosen; specifically steroids that possess low androgenic activity and low virilization ratings.
When it comes to Testosterone Replacement Therapy, the benefits of Sustanon are fairly straightforward; your testosterone levels are low, Sust is pure testosterone, and through administration the problem is solved. Through supplementation, each and every last symptom of low testosterone can and will be reversed, and as a result, your overall quality of life enhanced. Those who suffer from low testosterone often find their libido is severely diminished and often erectile dysfunction becomes a problem, but these are hardly the only symptoms. A loss of muscle mass and strength is often common as is increased body-fat, and this can all occur despite proper exercise and dieting habits. Further, those who suffer often find their energy levels drained, they become depressed, suffer from insomnia and their immune system weakens; not to mention they suffer from a lack of mental clarity and open the door to many far more serious conditions. When low testosterone is ignored, it has been shown to be a contributor to leading to diabetes, osteoporosis and even Alzheimers disease. Thankfully, if you suffer from low levels, Sustanon 250 can ensure you suffer no more, and the odds of you falling prey to the more serious conditions will be greatly improved.

1. What is Sustanon 250mg
Sustanon 250 is a testosterone hormone. Although synthetic it is a perfect replica of thenaturally produced primary male androgen testosterone. By the esters that are attached,this is what defines Sustanon 250 and differentiates it from other testosterone compounds.
The compound carries a mixture of small and large esters in a precise dose. It is the precise dose of each of the four testosterone esters that make it. You could take four other testosterones and combine them in the same dosing strength but this would not make it Sustanon 250.
The precise makeup of Bavarian Medicines product is as follows:
- 30mg Testosterone Propionate
- 60mg Testosterone Phenylpropionate
- 60mg Testosterone Isocaproate
- 100mg Testosterone Decanoate

3. Side effects of Sustanon
For the healthy adult male, healthy excluding low testosterone, Sustanon 250 is an extremely well-tolerated anabolic steroid. There are possible side effects of Sustanon 250 use, but they are also largely controllable with proper use. We will find that certain side effects of Sustanon 250 are highly dependent on genetic predispositions, but overall safe supplementation is more than possible.
For the low testosterone patient, he will have the easiest time combating the side effects of Sustanon 250. In this case, while side effects are possible he is merely replacing the testosterone he’s lacking. Then we have the performance athlete and he will be taking his testosterone levels far above and beyond what could ever be naturally produced. Most men can tolerate high testosterone levels very well but there is generally a cutoff point. However, this cutoff point can vary greatly from one man to the next. Further, this individual will need to exercise more caution than the low testosterone patient and often take steps that a therapeutic setting may not require. In order to help you understand the possible side effects of Sustanon 250 we have broken them down into their separate categories along with all the information you’ll need.
The side effects of Sustanon 250 will most commonly include those of an estrogenic nature. The testosterone hormone is highly susceptible to the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. As estrogen levels rise, this can lead to and promote three common side effects associated with anabolic steroid use. The primary estrogenic side effects of Sustanon 250 include gynecomastia and excess water retention. If excess water retention becomes severe this can have a profound negative effect on blood pressure. Severe water retention is the leading cause of high blood pressure
with anabolic steroid use. It is also very controllable.
In order to combat the estrogenic side effects of Sustanon 250 an anti-estrogen medication is often recommended. You have two choices in anti-estrogen medications, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM’s) or Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s). AI’s will be the most effective as they will directly inhibit the aromatase process and reduce total serum estrogen levels. SERM’s will not inhibit aromatization or lower estrogen levels, but they will bind to the receptors thereby preventing estrogenic action. SERM’s can be very useful in combating gynecomastia, but they are often not enough to prevent water retention in some
men. Unfortunately, AI’s can also have a negative effect on cholesterol that appears to be greatly exasperated when combined with the use of exogenous testosterone. SERM’s will have no negative effect on cholesterol. In fact, they may promote healthy cholesterol levels due to their estrogen like activity in the liver. If you can get the job done with a SERM it should always be your first choice.
An important note on water retention, and this is very important regarding off-season use of Sustanon 250. An overabundance in calories, especially carbohydrates will promote water retention. Excess calories are needed for growth but often not near the levels most assume.
A moderate increase above maintenance caloric consumption is often all that’s needed. However, many will eat so much that they will inevitably hold a lot of water and this water retention may become worse with the inclusion of exogenous testosterone. Control your caloric intake, especially your carbohydrate intake and you’ll have a much easier time controlling water retention.
Sustanon 250 is a highly androgenic hormone and can produce related effects. The androgenic side effects of Sustanon 250 include acne, accelerated hair loss in those predisposed to male pattern baldness and body hair growth. These side effects of Sustanon 250 are highly dependent on genetic predispositions. Sensitivity to androgenicity plays a role but is dependent on the testosterone hormone’s interaction with the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This enzyme is responsible for reducing testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and as DHT activity increases it can lead to the related effects. In order to combat the androgenic side effects of Sustanon 250 some may find the use of a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor such as Finasteride to be warranted. Not all men will need a related inhibitor but some will find it helps. However, it is important to note that a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor will not completely reduce the steroid’s androgenicity. Those who are extremely sensitive to androgenic effects may find this steroid is not for them or should at least be used in minimal amounts.
The use of testosterone can have a negative impact on cholesterol, particularly HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol). However, it does not appear to be very significant in most cases. Low HDL suppression is possible but it’s often inconsequential. However, when combined with the use of an AI it appears to be exasperated. According to the data at hand, the use of testosterone at a dosing of 250-600mg per week with an AI will promote an approximate 20% reduction in HDL cholesterol levels. The total reduction as you can see remains statistically the same in that dosing range. Once again, for this reason SERM’s should be your first choice in place of AI’s in order to combat estrogenic activity. But, SERM’s won’t always be enough and there is hope. If an AI is needed with your Sustanon 250 you should ensure you put in a lot of effort into controlling your cholesterol levels. This means a cholesterol friendly diet rich in omega fatty acids, low in saturated fats and low in simple sugars. It also means incorporating plenty of cardiovascular activity into your routine.
Regardless of who you are or why you’re using Sustanon 250 the inclusion of this anabolic steroid will suppress your natural testosterone production. For the low testosterone patient this is of no concern. Such an individual is not producing enough testosterone to begin with.
For the performance athlete, while using Sustanon 250, again this is of no concern. Sustanon 250 will provide all the testosterone the body needs. However, the concern arises for this individual once his cycle and use comes to an end. When use comes to an end natural testosterone production will begin again.
However, it will take a long time for your levels to return to normal. This can lead to a temporary low testosterone state and the associated symptoms. It can also lead to cortisol becoming the dominant hormone in your body making the progress made on cycle very difficult to impossible to maintain.
Due to the testosterone suppression caused by Sustanon 250, once use is discontinued most all men are encouraged to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan. A solid PCT plan will include SERM’s like Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) and Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) and the peptide hormone HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). This will greatly speed up the recovery process. A PCT plan will not return you to normal on it’s own. There is no PCT plan on earth that can do this. However, a PCT plan will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your natural testosterone levels continue to rise.
Important notes on natural testosterone recovery. Natural recovery assumes no prior low testosterone condition existed. It also assumes severe damage was not done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA).
Sustanon 250 is not hepatotoxic and will present no stress or damage to the liver.
Sustanon 250 Administration:
In a therapeutic setting to treat low testosterone, Sustanon 250 doses will normally fall in the 250mg every 3-4 week range with one injection every 3 weeks being most common. The total duration of treatment is indefinite. Low testosterone normally needs to be treated for life.
In a performance capacity, Sustanon 250 doses commonly range from 250-1,000mg per week. 250mg per week is enough to combat testosterone suppression caused by the use of other anabolic steroids. For a true anabolic effect, most will find 500mg per week to be effective. 500mg per week will be very tolerable for most men and often all the Sustanon 250 they’ll need. Many men will be able to tolerate 750-1,000mg per week. Higher testosterone levels should produce greater results; however, they will also increase the probability of negative side effects. How great this increase in probability is will be dependent on the individual and can greatly vary from one man to the next. Doses above 1,000mg per week will greatly exasperate potential negative side effects.
As for stacking, Sustanon 250 will stack well with all anabolic steroids. During off-season cycles, Deca Durabolin or any Nandrolone compound is often beneficial along with possible additions of Anadrol or Dianabol. During the cutting phase, steroids like Anavar, Masteron, Primobolan, Trenbolone and Winstrol will prove useful. You will also find the Trenbolone hormone to be very valuable during off-season use.
An important note; some will find Sustanon 250 painful to inject. Sustanon 250 contains the Propionate ester and a small segment of the population will find this ester irritates the injected area. This will prohibit some from using the steroid.
4. Sustanon Reviews
Sustanon 250 is a fantastic anabolic steroid. It is highly versatile, well-tolerated by most all men and perfect for most any cycle. It is not superior to other testosterone forms and this is something we cannot stress enough. The combination of four testosterone forms is an excellent marketing ploy that’s been used to entice many performance athletes, but it’s no better or worse than traditional testosterone compounds. You can use Testosterone Cypionate, Testosterone Enanthate or Testosterone Propionate and receive the same, identical benefits and effects as you would with Sustanon 250.
While Sustanon 250 is the same on a functional basis as all testosterone forms, there is a time to choose it over other forms. If your supplier carries Bavarian Medicines Sustanon 250, a human grade anabolic steroid but only carries other testosterone forms from generic underground labels, always go with Sustanon 250.
