ADVERSE EFFECTS OF EQUIPOISE
Equipoise is a well-tolerated anabolic steroid mainly used by men and is well tolerated by most women in low doses. Even though individuals may experience side effects of equipoise, equipoise is said to be a manageable steroid for healthy adults. Here we will explain the probable side effects of equipoise and provide information regarding its adverse effects in a particular category.
The boldenone hormone does not aromatize heavily to estrogen. This is because of the hormone’s interaction with the aromatase enzyme. High levels of estrogen can be problematic in the promotion of gynecomastia, excess water retention and high blood pressure when water retention becomes severe. Because of the moderate aromatizing activity, it is easy for most men to control the related side effects. On the other hand, high doses need additional attention. Estrogenic dominance and suppression of testosterone can cause impaired sexual function.
There is no such damage and harmful effects to the liver. Boldenone does not pose stress to liver as it is not a hepatoxic anabolic steroid. However, some studies show that the use of equipoise tends to alter the shape, size and kidney function among bodybuilders.
Comparatively, equipoise does not possess cardiovascular strain unlike other anabolic steroids, especially those in oral form. However, boldenone can negatively impact the ratio of cholesterol and its ability to suppress HDL levels. But it is not of extreme level and in control for most healthy adults.
ANDROGENIC EFFECTS CAUSING OILY SKIN
Some of the androgenic side effects include acne, increase in hair loss, male pattern baldness and body hair growth. On the other hand, because of the structural nature the androgenicity of the steroid is greatly reduced. These are in a way related to genetic predisposition. On top of that, women using equipoise may witness virilization symptoms including hair growth on the body, clitoris enlargement and voice deepening (to name a few).
SUPPRESSING NATURAL TESTOSTERONE
Similar to other anabolic steroids, equipoise will overpower the natural testosterone production. However, the suppression rate of this drug varies and it highly effects serum levels in testosterone. It is important is to maintain the testosterone level in the body. Once a cycle of equipoise is stopped, natural testosterone production will begin again. Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) for stimulating the natural production of testosterone is necessary. It will not balance out everything, but it will prove to be advantageous. However, total recovery might take a few months.
