While Muscle Evolution neither condones nor promotes the use of performance enhancing drugs and steroids, we want to foster a culture of safe and responsible use through education, which is why we regularly compile authoritative and trustworthy drug-related information.
One of the most commonly used anabolic steroids on the market today. Trenbolone exerts its effects by increasing nitrogen retention in muscle tissue (thereby building new muscle tissue), and can additionally bind with the glucocorticoid receptors (thereby preventing muscle breakdown). It is also very likely that the majority of its muscle building effects are as a result of its ability to greatly increase IGF-1 within muscle tissue and cause muscle satellite cells (cells that repair damaged muscle) to display increased sensitivity to IGF-1 and additional growth factors, while increasing the internal amount of DNA per muscle cell.
