While we are familiar with the Propionate ester the remaining three esters that create Sustanon-250 are almost always found as part of a mixture or compounded anabolic androgenic steroid .
Developed by Organon, the original idea behind Sustanon-250 was to provide a testosterone form well-suited for hormone replacement therapy that would only needed to be administered once every few weeks and for all intense purposes the idea was a success. For the performance enhancing athlete Sustanon-250 can be a fine choice but the idea of injecting only once or twice a month is not applicable here. As a performance enhancer this testosterone like all forms will need to be administered on a more frequent basis. This mixture carries with it two fast, short esters, Propionate and Pheylpropionate, a longer more moderate ester Isocaproate and the very slow and long Decanoate ester. In order to keep testosterone levels stable and at their peak most athletes will inject Sustanon-250 at a minimum of every 3 days and more commonly every other day for optimal results.

Of all of these options none of them are outright safe; any site that allows you to buy testosterone by paying for it on their website you need to run for your life, as to do this you will be giving your credit card information to who knows who. As for gym dealers, this can be a tossup. If you can find a gym dealer who is not a middle man you may have a good source on your hands but understand if he gets into trouble himself he will more than likely sell you out at the first chance he gets if it saves his ass even slightly; most of them are scared and will not hold to any honorable line. Without question, when we buy testosterone on the black market there is no safe bet but there are some good sources out there who keep a low profile, use secure servers and email accounts and who are generally safe for most. In the end, understand, such purchases are illegal in many countries so if you choose this rout the risk is on you and you alone.
All anabolic steroids have a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol. The relative impact of an anabolic/androgenic steroid on serum lipids is dependant on the dose, route of administration (oral vs. injectable) type of steroid (aromatizable or non-aromatizable) and level of resistance to hepatic metabolism. With regards to nandrolone at a dose of 600mg per week over 10 weeks demonstrated 26% reduction in HDL cholesterol levels. This suppression is slightly greater than an equal dose of testosterone over an equal period. In other words it shows a slightly more negative impact on HDL/LDL ratio with nandrolone than with testosterone cypionate. It’s always recommended to accompany the use of this product with a low saturated fat diet and a cardiovascular exercise program.
