Testosterone is the primary sex hormone in males. It plays a vital role associated with sex drive as well as in the enhancement of bone and muscle mass, fat storage among men, and red blood cell production. Testosterone level reaches its peak when one is in his early 20’s and begin declining at 1% every year when he is in his thirties. When testosterone levels drop, reduction of libido, decrease in bone and muscle mass and strength, insomnia, mood swings, and loss of energy occur.
Inadequate testosterone has led many men to go for testosterone replacement therapy, which can be in the form of a skin patch, gel, mouth patch, injectable, implants, and pills. Until now, testosterone replacement is not recommended unless an individual suffering from low testosterone levels manifest many of its symptoms. One option that one with inadequate testosterone is to take testolone or RAD 140.
RAD 140 or testolone is a selective androgen receptor stimulator that is designed to achieve the effects of having high testosterone in the body, just like testosterone replacement therapy. Testolone is said to be more beneficial than hormone-enhancing replacements because of so many reasons.
Testolone Does Not Affect Other Organs
When taking testosterone hormones, other organs can be affected, which can lead to organ failure and ailments. Much has been said on the side effects of oral testosterone on the liver, prostate, and pituitary glands. Testolone binds only to androgen receptors in bones and muscles, so it does not have any effect on other organs. This makes testolone ideal for bodybuilders and athletes whose only wish in taking testolone is to build muscle mass, strength, and stamina.
Does Not Cause Behavioral Changes
Taking testosterone medication can lead to some behavioral changes and mood swings. This does not happen when taking in testolone supplements.
Other Side Effects Are Less Pronounced
Testosterone gels and skin patches can cause allergies and rashes to someone with sensitive skin while administering it through intravenous injection or intramuscular implants can lead to abscesses and scarred tissues. Aside from other organ affectation, testosterone supplements can also cause hypertension.
Other side effects of testosterone that are less pronounced when taking testolone supplements instead are enlargement of breast among males, hair loss, the formation of acne, loss of libido, and infertility.
All these side effects of testosterone supplements are because they do not target specific receptors, tissues, or organs. It can be absorbed by any tissue in the body, unlike when taking testolone that particularly binds only with androgens in muscles and bones only.
