History of Popularity Masteron (Drostanolone Propionate)
Basic information needs to be provided first about both anabolic and androgenic steroids. Drostanolone propionate i.e. injection anabolic steroid which is dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is, in fact, a modified base DHT. The 2-methyl group will increase the anabolic properties of the drug which is to be taken. The effectiveness of this is it that it will enhance and promote the growth rate of muscle tissue as in comparison with its unmethylated precursors. As described in the literature, drostanolone propionate refers steroid with potent anabolic and anti-estrogenic properties. The anabolic properties are called moderate as compared with some other drugs. It is the drug that is commonly used by bodybuilders during athletes in speed sports and during the diet. The most important thing is that it helps to increase strength and muscle mass which is generally accompanied by a decrease in the level of minimal side effects and also fat.
A bit of history
Drostanolone propionate was initially described in the year 1959. Syntex Company was also developed along with the drug which is commonly known as steroids like Metildrostanolon i.e. superdrol and Anapolon. Later, after a gap of 10 years, drostanolone propionate came into the forefront and began to be used as a prescription drug. Then, Lily came in contact with Syntex and also agreed for separation of duties for conducting research and also development but in exchange for the right to sell off the results and findings of the study. Lily then obtained the right to sell drostanolone propionate in the States under Drolban, a brand name, and also the company Syntex i.e. other markets. Some of these products include Cilag in Portugal, Metormon in Spain Sarva Syntex in Belgium Masteron and Masteril in the United Kingdom and Bulgaria among others. Drostanolone propionate is, in fact, form a group of other popular products like Mastisol in Shionogi, Japan, Permastril in Cassenne, France and Masterid in Grunenthal, the German Democratic Republic.
It was the United States Department of quality control of Food and Drugs (FDA) which gave the approval for using drostanolone propionate for treating untreatable breast cancer in women in their postmenopausal phase. This, in fact, had an impact upon the clinical signs and indications for the drug in all the international markets. Thus, the medical literature explains that drostanolone propionate is very mild and so has very less effect virilization when compared with other equal doses of testosterone propionate. Now, it is one of the best and is taken into account while considering an alternative to an injection of testosterone to the womenfolk. But, there is a limit to it. The dose level of 300 mg per week is actually high. It is pertinent to mention here that the effects of virilization such as facial hair growth, clitoral enlargement, deepening of voice and acne can also occur after a long prolonged and elongated therapy. In the decades of 1970 and 1980, drostanolone propionate was very popular among athletes. Since it was a prescription drug, it did not have unlimited moments of joy and success. The emergence of other popular and effective treatments for breast cancer stopped the rate of sale of this drug and thus there was a gradual decline in the approval and acceptance of the steroids at this stage of treatment. Drolban, Permastril, and Metormon could not continue its glorious journey. Masteron from Belgium was the last remaining West preparation which contained drostanolone propionate also vanished from the market in the late 1990s.
How it is supplied?
Now that you know drostanolone propionate does not come as a prescription drug, it is no longer available in the market.
Some other features
Drostanolone which is also known as dromostanolone is but a modified and improved form of dihydrotestosterone as is characterized by the introduction of a methyl group at carbon-2 (alpha). This notably will increase the anabolic steroid effect and also enhance its stability to metabolism in the skeletal muscle tissues via the 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme. Drostanolone propionate is also a modified form of drostanolone. It is the carboxylic acid (propionic acid) which is attached to the 17-beta hydroxy group. Esterified steroids are very less polar than free steroids and thus slowly and surely from the site of injection. The free (active) drostanolone is left in the blood once the air is removed. Esterified steroids are devised and made so that it can prolong the effects of therapy after the reception. This will allow the user to inject it for very lesser time. Many fear the process of injecting so many times. This is not the case with the free non-esterified steroids. The half-life period, in fact, of drostanolone propionate, lasts only for two days after the injection.
