Bolasterone is a synthetically developed anabolic androgenic steroid.
Like others, it mimics the effects of testosterone.
It was developed around the 1960s but has since been discontinued due to its adverse affect on the liver.
It, like other anabolic androgenic steroids, is also banned by sporting organizations as well as the International Olympic Committee.
It comes with many different trade names and nicknames including:
Dimethyltestosterone (oral Bolasterone)
In such cases, it’s recommended that potential users be familiar with its molecular formula: C21H32O2.
In bodybuilding circles, Bolasterone is not as common an anabolic androgenic steroid as other more popular, and “safer”, forms of synthetic testosterone.
Geneza Pharmaceuticals sells it though.
You can buy GP Bolasterone 20 x 50mg tablets can be purchased for a price of $65 USD.
It is reputed to be quite potent and with that potency comes a high risk of toxicity.
Steroid development has come a long way since the 1930s, when the first anabolic androgenic steroids were developed.
Older steroids like this have been off the market for years; many of them due to their severe side effects.
It’s no secret that underground labs often create their own “designer” steroids and market them under similar if not outright copycat brand and generic names to the original drug.
What Does Bolasterone Do?
Genuine Bolasterone, in spite of its reputation as one of the most potent anabolic androgenic steroids ever developed, is also extremely toxic to the liver.
As a highly anabolic and androgenic steroid, it is also known to trigger progestational activity. Progestins are hormones that behave in a similar manner as estrogen. Benefits of use included:
Accelerated and often-impressive development of muscle
Increased body mass/weight (mostly due to water retention and fat accumulation)
When compared with testosterone, Bolasterone is believed to be ten times more potent in its anabolic potential and double the androgenic potential of testosterone.
Despite the addition of the 7-alpha methyl component, which was intended to interrupt function of 5-alpha reductase that contributes to aromatization, it still has the potential to aromatize.
The drug was used only a short time before its production was discontinued due to its very high potential for liver toxicity.
Today, it’s not uncommon to find “Bolasterone” that mimics the effect of the original but doesn’t contain the actual drug.
Rather such forms are typically combinations of testosterone and other synthetic steroids including Dbol, Deca-durabolin and and/or Anadrol, and sometimes even both.
Be careful on a Bolasterone cycle because of this, it’s probably best to start out at small dosages.
Bolasterone For Sale
No legitimate manufacturer distributes Bolasterone any longer, but underground labs and black-market counterfeiters can be found that the sell the drug, claiming that its genuine article when it isn’t.
Potential users should be aware that side effects (and other anabolic androgenic steroids) can have a negative toxic effect on numerous body systems including the:
The toxic effect of oral steroids severely limits its popularity and usage, even by bodybuilders who tend to take such warnings lightly.
While the reputed benefits in anabolic potential with the steroid are strong, the estrogenic side effects as well as its reputation as extremely toxic to the liver make Bolasterone one of the rarer anabolic androgenic steroids in historical usage.
Where Can You Buy Bolasterone?
If a bodybuilder finds any reference to Bolasterone results or side effects, it’s most likely to come from bodybuilding forum board discussion threads.
In rare cases, a bodybuilder can buy Bolasterone (similar to the ‘original’ but not actually the original form of the steroid) from underground labs marketing themselves as legitimate and reputable, certified, and licensed pharmaceutical manufacturers.
It may be found under different names in veterinary medicine circles. Another brand name (Methosarb) may provide more results in regard to use in bodybuilding.
Methosarb is deemed comparable and similar in chemical structure as Bolasterone and is often known as Calusterone.
Calusterone, while similar in nature, is another modified “designer” form of testosterone that has been manufactured to be less toxic and with decreased anabolic and androgenic effects.
The drug is no longer manufactured as a prescription strength medication and its anabolic effects are relatively inefficient.
Designer Steroids & Cautions
Products like these may sound good, at least on paper, but in actuality are quite dangerous, especially when purchased from underground labs.
Counterfeit products are rife. You never know what you’re getting. Bodybuilders often scoff at such warnings, but when it comes to steroids or products that claim to be the real thing when they’re anything but, should be taken more seriously.
With use of any anabolic androgenic steroid, watch for signs and symptoms of liver toxicity which can include:
unexplained weight loss
lack of appetite
pain in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen
rash (and itching)
jaundice (yellowing of the white portion of the eyes and the skin
If left untreated, symptoms of liver toxicity can cause permanent liver damage, potential liver disease, and possible liver failure.
Other performance enhancing drugs people use instead of Bolasterone include:
Dianabol Methandrostenolone (Dbol, Methandienone)
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin)
GP Bolasterone or its copies may be potent, but other steroids or even steroid alternatives are more effective and a lot safer.
