Boldenone, also known as Binderone or Metabolism Enzyme, is an naturally occurring anabolic steroids and the 1-deoxynojirimyric acid derivative of testosterone. Boldenone itself hasn’t been marketed extensively; instead, as an oral compound, it’s typically used as the direct result of another compound, methylprednisolone. Methylprednisolone is marketed under different trade names such as Meitradion, methylcobalamin, methylphenidate and meitretinoin. As an oral compound, methylprednisolone works by metabolizing androgen hormones and can therefore be used for men with prostate problems to treat androgenetic hyperplasia and androgenetic alopecia, though it has had limited effect on benign prostatic hyperplasia and small penis.
Since its original clinical use in 1998, when it was approved by the FDA for treatment of sleep apnea in patients with diabetes, the effects of Boldenone has extended beyond diabetes and sleep apnea. The use of Boldenone for weight control is not new but some scientists are sceptical as to the long term use and say that current research should be confined to patients with liver disease and obesity. However, as an oral steroid, boldenone does have some benefits when it comes to managing androgenetic conditions, particularly where muscle mass is negatively affected.
Until recently, the only tool that has been able to measure testosterone levels in body fluids without requiring a sample of the fluid is the mass spectrometer. For years, this technology has been the most useful tool for testosterone testing because it has the sensitivity and speed to detect minute Boldenone amounts of testosterone in body fluids. However, there is a limitation. Due to the extreme absorbance rate of these substances, it can take months to get even a small amount of testosterone so the results from mass spectrometry will not be accurate. This is not the case when using Boldenone for weight management because it can be absorbed very quickly, enabling testing for improvements in just a few days.
There have been ongoing studies on the effects of Boldenone on beef and veal calves whose growth is stunted by massive ingestion of regular beef or veal. The results are inconclusive but a lack of data prevents researchers from drawing firm conclusions. One thing is clear. The use of Boldenone for weight control is legal and proven safe.
Before prescribing Boldenone for use as a weight-loss supplement, healthcare professionals must establish whether there are any other health problems associated with the patient’s particular androgenic steroids (dihydrotestosterone). If there is, a doctor must inform the patient about those risks and discuss how best to manage them. All such patients should be under the supervision of an experienced physician.
A new test that is now available in the UK from a leading urologists’ clinic uses a sensitive, mobile, non-invasive and non-intrusive methodology to detect the levels of boldenone and other androgenic steroids in urine samples. This non-invasive urine testing method can help determine quickly whether a patient is taking too much of a hormone or whether another substance is more advisable. This test is simple, non-invasive and confidential, and has proved extremely effective in the detection of excessive androgens in urine samples. It can also show how much of a concentration of a banned steroid is present in the patient’s system.
