Testosterone Cypionate VS Testosterone Enanthate
As we all know, Testosterone cypionate and enanthate are most popular steroids which are used for bodybuilder. Recently some new clients ask our landmark sales to tell some same and different aspects of those two products. Now I will say something about them.
Testosterone cypionate and testosterone enanthate are two similar and interchangeable testosterone esters. They have the same functions: increased muscle weight. Testosterone has very strong anabolic effects It also aromatizes readily. Bodybuilders like testosterone because it enables large muscle gains fast. For man, Testosterone cypionate and enanthate all can promote the development of male reproductive tissues as well as developing secondary sexual characteristics like muscle development, growth of body hair, etc. Testosterone also prevents osteoporosis.
Testosterone cypionate is limited in the U.S. This is why enanthate is known widely and is used largely by people since it is available even beyond the U.S.
Testosterone enanthate has a slightly faster release and shorter active life than cypionate. It is depended on the carbon ester group.Testosterone Enanthate has a 7-carbon ester chain whileTestosterone cypionate has an 8-carbon ester chain. The particular ester has an active life spangives and give it to the testosterone . Its solubility in water and oil depends on its ester group. The more carbons the ester group has, the more soluble in oil and less soluble in water it becomes. Enanthate, with its 7-carbon ester and 1-carbon atom is lighter than cypionate and has more testosterone per gram.
As we age, the testosterone levels decrease leading to loss of muscle mass and strength, fat gain, and loss of sex drive. Thus, testosterone replacement is a good idea to replace testosterone loss especially for middle to old-age people.
