Parabolan is the commonly associated brand name to the powerful anabolic steroid Trenbolone Hexahydrobenzylcarbonate. Although the original Parabolan brand was discontinued in 1997, it remains a highly desired anabolic steroid. There are very few anabolic steroids as powerful as the Trenbolone hormone, but while powerful possible side effects of Parabolan most certainly exist. The primary side effects of Parabolan tend to be similar to many anabolic steroids, and with proper use they can be very easy to control. However, some men tend to respond poorly to this hormone despite responsible use and can display a set group of side effects a bit unique to the Trenbolone hormone. Unfortunately, the response based side effects of Parabolan can affect some men in a way that prevents them from using the steroid. Unfortunately, it is also impossible to predict if you will be one of those men. Most men will be fine, but more men will not be able to handle the Trenbolone hormone more so than any other anabolic steroid.
Estrogenic side effects of Parabolan are possible, but they should not be a problem for most men. The Trenbolone hormone does not aromatize, meaning there is no testosterone to estrogen conversion. However, Trenbolone is a progestin and this means the side effects of Parabolan can include gynecomastia, especially in sensitive men. Progesterone has the ability to stimulate the estrogenic mechanism in the mammary tissue, which in turn can promote gynecomastia. The conjoined use of an aromatizing steroid will further enhance this probability, and as testosterone is typically needed with Trenbolone some type of anti-estrogen is recommended. Not all men will need an anti-estrogen, especially if their testosterone doses are low, but sensitive men most certainly will.
The androgenic side effects of Parabolan can be very extreme for a lot of men; after all, the androgenicity of this steroid is quite pronounced. The androgenic side effects of Parabolan can include hair loss, acne and body hair growth. However, such effects are highly dependent on genetics. Hair loss, men who are predisposed to male pattern baldness may lose some of their hair. They are going to lose their hair with or without the use of Parabolan or any anabolic steroid but the use of Parabolan may speed it up. This is not the only anabolic steroid that can promote hair loss in men predisposed to male pattern baldness, but it can have a stronger affect than many. Acne is similar in that men who are sensitive will be at the greatest risk. Those who are not sensitive will typically not have a problem. However, even moderately sensitive men may breakout due to this steroid’s pronounced androgenicity. Staying clean and dry at all times will offer a lot of protection. It’s important to note, the Trenbolone hormone is not metabolized by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme. This means a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor will not reduce the androgenicity of Parabolan making compounds like Finasteride relatively useless with this steroid.
The cardiovascular side effects of Parabolan are the most concerning of all possible adverse effects associated with this steroid. While most are concerned with visually related reactions, the cardiovascular side effects of Parabolan can actually negatively affect our health and can include high blood pressure and cholesterol. If you already suffer from high blood pressure or cholesterol you must not supplement with this anabolic steroid. If you are healthy enough for use such areas of your health can be controlled but you will need to put in some effort. Simply hoping for the best will not be good enough. In order to protect yourself from the cardiovascular side effects of Parabolan a healthy blood pressure and cholesterol friendly lifestyle will be important. Your diet should be rich in omega fatty acids, which can be accomplished by daily fish oil supplementation. Saturated fats and simple sugars should be avoided and plenty of cardiovascular activity should be part of your routine. Some type of daily cardiovascular activity is advised. It is also important that you avoid things like smoking and excess alcohol consumption as such activities will enhance the cardiovascular strain. It is also important that you keep a close eye on your blood pressure and cholesterol during use and be willing to discontinue use if things get out of hand. However, if you’re a healthy adult and live a healthy lifestyle that promotes the continuation of your health, most men will be fine.
The side effects of Parabolan will always include natural testosterone suppression in all men who supplement. Once the use of Parabolan is complete and all anabolic steroids have cleared the system natural testosterone production will begin again. However, most men will want to implement a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) program. A PCT program will facilitate a smoother recovery and ensure your total recovery time takes no longer than it has to. It should be noted – natural recovery assumes there was no preexisting low testosterone condition. It also assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) due to improper anabolic steroid use. During Parabolan use, it is important that all men include exogenous testosterone supplementation into their routine. The form of testosterone you choose does not matter, all that matters is you provide your body with the testosterone it needs. Failure to do so will lead to a low testosterone condition.
As howith all Trenbolone hormones the side effects of Parabolan can include those of a response nature. Some men will simply respond to the hormone poorly and display symptoms of anxiety, insomnia, night sweats and/or rapid heartbeat. Such side effects of Parabolan can be mild, but in many cases they can be severe. In fact, they can be so severe that the aforementioned effects can be displayed in a way that is almost beyond imagination. If such side effects of Parabolan occur and are of an unimaginable nature, you should discontinue use immediately. If the steroid is to be used again at a future date, you can try lowering the dose. Sometimes lowering the dose will take care of the problem. However, some men will respond poorly to low doses and there’s not much that can be done about this.
