Athletes who desire to enhance their performance have a variety of options to choose from in terms of steroids and supplements. Trenbolone 200 is one of many anabolic steroids that produce dramatic results. Trenbolone is a veterinary drug, so on the flip side, Trenbolone (Finaplix) 200 mg / mL also causes potentially harmful side effects in regard to human use. Before you consider using a drug meant for animals, learn what it is and what it might do (or not) for you.
Main Effects of Trenbolone (Finaplix) 200
Trenbolone used by bodybuilders has similar effects to other anabolic steroids. This is especially the case when it comes to testosterone. The main effects of Trenbolone (Finaplix) include:
- Produces a higher production of IGF-1 (a growth factor)- but be aware that this can increase the risk of certain types of cancer
- Produces a higher retention of nitrogen in the muscles
- Creates a higher rate of protein synthesis and erythropoiesis or at least decrease apoptosis
- Believed to result in lower production of glucocorticoid steroid
Of course, anabolic steroids can also increase metabolism. The perceived benefits and Trenbolone (Finaplix) results are very potent and can surpass the anabolic and androgenic effects of testosterone. Another major aspect that differentiates Trenbolone (Finaplix) 200mg / mL from other steroids is its ability to increase feed efficiency (in cattle). Bodybuilders who use the drug also expect similar effects in regard to nutrient efficiency in the human body. It has been proven that Tren can increase nutrient efficiency (in cattle!) but no scientific study has been conducted that translates this same effect in humans.
Trenbolone (Finaplix) 200 Cycles and Stacks
Any Trenbolone cycle should be stacked with Testosterone, whether you’re bulking or cutting. Testosterone is critical to adding gains and maximizing benefits. The time frame for a cycle can range from 8 weeks to 12 weeks. Using Trenbolone for 12 weeks is only recommended for very experienced users who know how their body handles it. Even so, use comes with risks.
Many bodybuilders report that 50 mg every other day is effective but in bodybuilding circles, it’s not uncommon to find users taking 100 mg every other day. Be aware that with any drug, including Trenbolone (Finaplix) the higher the dosage, the higher the risk of side effects.
Although there is a wide range of options to choose from, Trenbolone 200 (Finaplix) does stack well with most other anabolic-androgenic steroids. However, a stack that includes Testosterone with Trenbolone and Dianabol is considered a good combination for those wanting to bulk up. A combination of Trenbolone, Testosterone, and Winstrol is considered to be beneficial for a cutting cycle.
Post Cycle Therapy with Trenbolone
Whatever your purpose for using Trenbolone (Finaplix), it is critically important to engage in post cycle therapy (PCT) after your cycle comes to an end, whether or not you’re still using Trenbolone in the final week. Most users find that standard PCT of HCG, Nolvadex, and/or Clomid work effectively. Many do find it necessary to extend the duration somewhat than if they had been on an easier cycle of Testosterone and Dianabol only.
Important Note about Side Effects
Trenbolone is reputed to be harsh in regard to side effects. Trenbolone is a 19-nor progestational compound. Research has shown that 19-nors tend to have an affinity to bind to progesterone receptors. Trenbolone in fact does have a very strong affinity for Progesterone receptors, much stronger than Nandrolone.
What’s interesting is that progesterone-type side effects are very similar to estrogenic side effects because the activity of progestins is highly correlated with estrogen activity in the body.
These side effects include:
- Suppression of natural (endogenous) production of testosterone in the body – and may contribute to testicular atrophy
- Water retention
When levels of prolactin reach above normal levels in males, certain side effects can occur:
- Anorgasmia (inability to achieve orgasm)
- Erectile dysfunction
- Lactating nipples
- Suppression of endogenous production of testosterone
Progesterone has been shown to inhibit the production of Prolactin, and 19-nors like Trenbolone and Nandrolone are scientifically classified as progestins, which should actually suppress levels of prolactin in the body. However, Trenbolone and Nandrolone are not themselves progesterones, but anabolic steroids that only exhibit progesterone-like activity because of their unique chemical modifications.
Therefore, it is highly possible that these hormones can exhibit activity contrary to the activities of similar hormones, and Trenbolone (Finaplix) 200mg and Nandrolone do increase the levels of prolactin in the body.
Use of prolactin antagonist drugs like Pramipexole or Cabergoline may reduce this effect, but not always. A goal for bodybuilders is to prevent estrogen levels from rising. Easier said than done. This is the main reason why the side effects linked with 19-nor compounds like Nandrolone are often said to be far more extreme when used in an environment high in estrogen.
Suppression of Testosterone Production
Because of their nature, Nandrolone and Trenbolone (as examples) may severely suppress and even shut down the body’s natural (endogenous) production of testosterone. Therefore, when using such a drug, bodybuilders also recommend stacking with testosterone. This is supposed to keep the testes manufacturing their own, but be aware that when the hypothalamus and pituitary gland sense adequate levels of testosterone in the blood, they will reduce signals to manufacture it. Other common side effects of Trenbolone (Finaplix) include increased perspiration (night sweats) and moderate to severe disturbances in sleep (insomnia).
Trenbolone 200 is mainly used for increasing BMI and lean muscle mass in livestock due to its strong partitioning of nutrients. The goal is to create lean muscle mass (meat) on farm animals. Because this is the main purpose of Trenbolone (Finaplix) be aware that while effective in cattle, those results may not translate safely to human use nor expectations!
