Testopro is one of the most sought after steroids in bodybuilding. Testosterone Propionate, the active substance of the drug by Phoenix Remedies, is intended for the development of muscle mass and strength, but due to its peculiarities of action, it is more often used during the drying period.
Testosterone is a hormone that serves as the base molecule for most hormonal (androgenic) drugs. By changing the testosterone molecule (adding or removing atoms) one or another drug is synthesized. So, for example, testosterone propionate is a testosterone molecule to which an ester of propionic acid is attached, and it is this that determines the pharmacological properties and features of the action of this substance.
Testosterone Propionate takes effect immediately after injection and lasts 24 hours. In the blood, about 98% of testosterone is associated with a specific globulin fraction that binds testosterone and estradiol. Biotransformation occurs in the liver to various 17-ketosteroids, which, after conjugation with glucuronic or sulfuric acid, are removed in the urine (about 90%).
The action of Testosterone Propionate
Testosterone Propionate specifically initiates the transcription of genes, thereby changing the nitrogen balance in a positive direction. It also increases the level of insulin-like growth factor in the muscles and liver. And it causes the proliferation of satellite cells in the muscle tissue, due to which hyperplasia and muscle recovery occur. It should be noted that all esters have the same mechanisms of action, the difference is in the activity and the predominant direction of action.

Propionate Side Effects
The drug suppresses its own testosterone production, which, as a rule, is restored at the end of the cycle in 2-3 months. With long cycles, it is necessary to administer 500IU of gonadotropin, once per week, starting from week 2.
Testosterone Propionate is not recommended for women due to its high androgenic activity. Pain, itching and redness at the injection site are possible as well as acne, oily skin, hair loss, headache, depression, aggression, anxiety or sleep disorders.
As practice shows, in moderate doses, Testosterone Propionate does not affect either the liver, or the kidneys, or any other internal organs.
