Testosterone Cypionate is a synthetic version of the naturally produced testosterone hormone. This hormone is responsible for many different physical and mental characteristics in men. It promotes sexual appearance, fat loss, helps to gain and maintain lean muscle mass, increases bone density and can even protect against heart disease. Whether produced naturally or by the use of testosterone Cypionate, these traits do not change. All other steroids are actually the testosterone molecule that has been modified to alter the properties of the hormone. Testosterone Cypionate has a rating of 100 when measuring its anabolic / androgenic structure, and this rating is used to measure all other steroids. This would make testosterone the “father” of all anabolic steroids used by athletes today. It should be noted; all testosterone compounds, including Testosterone Cypionate have this anabolic / androgenic score of 100 because they are all just testosterone. Testosterone cypionate is an extremely anabolic androgenic hormone that makes it an excellent steroid to use if you are looking for more size and endurance. Testosterone Cypionate promotes nitrogen retention in muscle and the more nitrogen the muscles contain the more protein the muscles store. Testosterone cypionate can also increase the level of another anabolic hormone, IGF-1 in muscle tissue providing even more anabolic activity. Testosterone Cypionate also has the amazing ability to increase the activity of satellite cells. These cells play an active role in repairing damaged muscle. Testosterone also binds to the androgen receptor to promote androgen receptor-dependent mechanisms for muscle gain and fat loss.
Testosterone Cypionate causes changes in shape, size and can also change the appearance and number of muscle fibers. Androgens such as testosterone can protect your hard-earned muscle from catabolic glucocorticoid hormones (muscle wasting), in turn inhibiting the associated side effects. In addition, Testosterone Cypionate has the ability to increase the production of red blood cells, and a greater number of red blood cells will improve endurance through increased oxygenation in the blood. More red blood cells can also improve recovery from intense physical activity. Even so, the anabolic / androgenic effects of testosterone are dose-dependent; the higher the dose, the greater the muscle building effect.
Many athletes experience massive increases in strength while using Testosterone Cypionate, as the hormone improves muscle contraction by increasing the number of motor neutrons in the muscles and improves neuromuscular transmission. It also promotes glycogen synthesis by providing more fuel for intense training by increasing endurance and strength.
Testosterone Cypionate also has the ability to promote fat loss by improving metabolic activity. Testosterone binds to the androgen receptor quite well resulting in the breakdown of fats and further prevents the formation of new fat cells. Another indirect action of fat loss caused by testosterone is the effect of portioning the nutrients it has on muscle and fat. Because the body builds muscle at an accelerated rate, more of the food you eat is transported to muscle tissue, instead of being stored as fat; nutrient efficiency is improved. Testosterone Cypionate will also play a crucial role around creatine. Creatine is essential for adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy source for our muscles and when muscles are stimulated ATP breaks down into adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and this is what releases energy. Unfortunately, the process is often too slow during stressful activity, but by using Testosterone Cypionate, this demand is met, as ATP is supplemented at a much faster rate.
