Boldenone, 846-48-0, Intermediates

Boldenone 846-48-0

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boldenone 846-48-0 (1,4-androstadiene-3-one-17β-ol, available as the undecylenate ester), also known under the trade names Equipoise, Ganabol, Equigan and Ultragan, is an anabolic steroid.

Effects and side-effects

The activity of boldenone 846-48-0 is mainly anabolic, with a low androgenic potency.

Boldenone 846-48-0 will increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis, increases appetite and stimulates the release of erythropoietin in the kidneys.

Boldenone 846-48-0 was synthesized in an attempt to create a long-acting injectable methandrostenolone (Dianabol), for androgen deficiency disorders. Boldenone 846-48-0acts similar to methandrostenolone with less adverse androgenic effects. It has a very long half-life, and can show up on a steroid test for up to 5 months, due to the long undecylenate ester attached to the parent steroid. Trace amounts of the drug can easily be detected for months after discontinued use.

Although commonly compared to nandrolone, boldenone 846-48-0 lacks progesterone receptor interaction and all the associated progestogenic side effects.
