T-Prop by Meditech (Testosterone Propionate) is an extremely fast-acting Testosterone ester, known to produce great gains in both strength and mass.
The body has a natural hormone, testosterone, which is responsible for the development of certain features such as muscles. The ability of the body to produce certain amounts of Testosterone affects a lot in skeletal, sexual and muscular development. In most cases the Testosterone is produced naturally by the body thus referred to as endogenous testosterone, but it can also be synthesized and administered in esters such as T-Prop. T-Prop after it was decided to add Propionate to the Testosterone hormone in order to increase its half-life. As well as Propionate, other forms of Testosterone can be fond as Cypionate or Enanthate, the main difference between the various compounds is mainly in terms of the longevity of their half-lives.
T-Prop is produced as an oil based compound that is administered to the body via intramuscular injection. The Propionate complex enables the exogenous Testosterone to hold on top its androgenic receptors much longer therefore staying in the body without aromatization for a long period of time which limits the number of dosages one has to take. One advantage of the Propionate complex over the other ester forms is that it allows the Testosterone hormone to act much faster while still staying in the body longer.
When T-Prop is injected into the body, it cannot be readily taken up. The ester portion of the steroid has to be broken down and the hormone released from the molecular chain for it to be used. The process of breaking down Testosterone Propionate is done by a group of enzymes called esterase. The function of these enzymes is removing the ester from the steroid. The heaviness of the ester portion of the steroid affects the duration of the steroid in the body as well as how fast the steroid will induce effects. The Propionate ester is the lightest of esters that is used with Testosterone and thus is disintegrated the easiest. Since the Propionate ester is the lightest, it takes up smaller volumes and amounts in the steroid which means that one gets more volumes of the hormone as opposed to the much heavier chains of the Testosterone ethers such as Enanthate.
Although the Propionate has a longer half life than the actual hormone, T-Prop needs to be injected at least every other day in order to maximize its effects, this is due largely to its fast absorption into the body. T-Prop will peak within the body within 24 to 36 hours before its effects start to decline. The relatively shorted period of time that the steroid stays in the body, when compared to the other esters such as Enanthate for eg. does have several advantages, it does however, have some disadvantages too. One of the main reasons it is so popular among athletes and bodybuilders is because it is out of the body within just days, which is perfect if you have to worry about testing. However, its short half life is a big reason why others choose to go with longer esters like Cypionate or Enanthate as it reduces the frequency one must inject. T-Prop can also cause the injection site to become extremely sore usually about 12 hours after the injection and the pain can persist for a couple of days and it’s not uncommon for the injection site to become very red and swollen.
