What Is Masteron Enanthate and Why Is It So Popular?
Which brings us to the next important property of Masteron: it has demonstrated capabilities of as a moderate aromatase inhibitor, as well as possibly acting to block Estrogen at receptor sites on breast tissue . This does make perfect sense when we see how the Propionate variant of Masteron was utilized exclusively within medicine to treat Estrogen-dependent breast cancer in females. Through its activity as an aromatase inhibitor, it can indeed cause a reduction in water through anti-estrogenic action. This is indeed the reason as to why at very low bodyfat percentages, bodybuilders experience a ‘chiseling’ and 3D ‘ripped’ look to the physique that is almost unique with Masteron. Finally, in addition to the chemical modifications, Masteron Enanthate has been affixed with the Enanthate ester on its 17-beta hydroxyl group, which serves to extend the half-life of the drug to about 7 – 10 days in the body. This is in contrast with Masteron Propionate, which is affixed with the Propionate ester and extends its half-life to that of a shorter duration: 4.5 days.
The reason as to why DHT-derivatives are so popular and useful in the world of bodybuilding and athletics is due to the fact that they are incapable of conversion (aromatization) into Estrogen. DHT is not recognized as a proper substrate for the aromatase enzyme in the body, and therefore any hormone that is derived from DHT will assume these same qualities. The only strange exception to this rule would be Anadrol-50 (Oxymetholone), which expresses heavy estrogenic effects, but still does not actually aromatize. On the other hand, no estrogenic effects what so ever should be experienced with the use of Masteron Enanthate at any dosage used at all. The same goes for any other compounds that are in the DHT-derivative family (with the exception of Anadrol, of course).
