Anabolic steroids are potent substances that cause muscle hypertrophy, and their effects are currently being actively studied both in medicine and in sports. It must be emphasized right away that the use of steroids should be carried out in accordance with the indications and under the supervision of a medical specialist. Use is contraindicated in adolescents, as it can carry significant and unnecessary health risks. This article is for background information and is not intended to encourage use.
Estrogens are female sex hormones. Normally, they are formed in small quantities in men. Hyperestrogenism is a state of increased estrogen levels (mainly estradiol and estrone).
The norm in men: estradiol (main form) 13-54 pg/ml, according to other sources 3-70 pg/ml. That is, you need to strive for a level of 10-30 pg/ml. If the level is above 70 picograms, then it must be reduced by pharmacological means.
Ether is a carboxylic acid residue attached to the alcohol group of an anabolic steroid molecule in order to give it the necessary pharmacological properties: deposition and slow release into the blood.
Most anabolic steroids are destroyed very quickly in the body, for example, the introduction of pure testosterone requires daily injections. For convenience, depot preparations were invented, which are an "anabolic + ether" complex dissolved in oil. Esters are readily soluble in oil and poorly in water, however, if an oil solution is dropped into water, the "anabolic + ether" molecules will very slowly pass from oil to water.
