History and Overview of Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate
Methenolone Enanthate properties and details were first released and published in 1960. Squibb released the injectable format of Primobolan (Methenolone Enanthate) first in 1962 followed by the release of the oral variant of Primo (Methenolone Acetate) into the American market in the same year. It was at the time marketed under the brand name Nibal Depot (for the injectable) and Nibal for the oral variant dosed at 20mg per tablet. Very shortly afterwards, the rights for manufacture of the compound were sold in West Germany to Schering. Following this sale of rights, Nibal was removed from the US market and instead, Schering marketed the compound under the new trade name Primobolan (for both variants). It then became the quintessential anabolic steroid manufactured by Schering, who then marketed the compound as an internationally exclusive drug, and would never return to the American Market. An interesting point to note is that even though Primobolan was never marketed in the United States after Schering had bought the rights to it, it is still listed as an FDA approved drug. This had enabled American doctors to be able to import it on special order.
Within the medical field, Methenolone is utilized to treat individuals suffering from conditions in which muscle wasting and severe weight loss is a symptom. Other uses include: an immunostimulant for individuals fighting infections, wasting conditions, an adjunct to countering the effects of prolonged corticosteroid therapy, and the treatment of osteoporosis as well as sarcopenia (the loss of muscle as correlated with aging). Primo, like Anavar, as proven to be so mild in its negative effects that it has also been utilized in children as well as infants in order to promote weight gain in premature born infants without any indications of ill effects or toxicity. One can easily see where the allure of this anabolic steroid comes from within the athletic and bodybuilding community, as it is a compound that exhibits weak androgenic effects with very little to no side effects.
Effects of Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate
The first thing to understand with Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate is that it is a DHT-derivative, meaning it is a modified form of DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). As such, it carries with it many similar properties and characteristics, including the inability to convert (aromatize) into Estrogen at any dose used. This should certainly be a comforting fact to most individuals who are concerned about Estrogenic side effects, such as bloating, gynecomastia, high blood pressure as a result of water retention, etc.
Although the oral format of Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate is C-17 Alpha Alkylated (also known as Methylation), which is a process that tends to make oral compounds present a degree of harm to the liver, Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate has never shown any measurable hepatotoxic effects to the body. Although oral Primo does not impose any measurable negative effects on the liver, it still presents some small amount of hepatotoxicity and this should still be understood, especially when it comes to extended cycle lengths and/or very high dosages. With that being said, one death of an anemic patient who was prescribed oral Primobolan has been linked to its use. Once again, high doses and/or very long cycle lengths of Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate may be a concern.
As much as Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate is touted by athletes and bodybuilders as being a ‘mild’ anabolic steroid, it still exhibits suppression of endogenous Testosterone production and HPTA function. In fact, studies have confirmed that at even a very low dosage (30 – 45mg daily), test subjects experienced 15 – 65% suppression of natural endogenous Testosterone production. Being that those dosages as far lower than what is required for performance enhancement purposes, it is still heavily recommended to perform a proper PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) following the discontinuation of Rus Bio Methenolone Enanthate.
