Proviron represents one of the oldest anabolic androgenic steroids on the market. A product of the giant pharmaceutical company Schering, it would first appear in 1934. Officially known as Mesterolone, it has appeared under numerous brand names over the years, but the Proviron name has continually remained dominant.
1. Mesterolone has a strong binding affinity to Sex-Hormone-Binding-Globulin (SHBG).
2. Proviron also has the ability to interact with the aromatase enzyme, the enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone to estrogen.
3. The Mesterolone hormone will also carry a strong binding affinity to the androgen receptor. Once again this will promote the functionality of other steroids to a degree but more importantly promote enhanced metabolic activity through direct lipolysis.
4. Proviron is a fertility medication. This is an anabolic steroid that does not suppress gonadotropins similarly to other anabolic steroids. With minimal suppression and its extremely strong androgenicity, this will enhance sperm production as androgens are necessary to spermatogenesis stimulation. This not only enhances the amount of sperm produced but greatly and equally important enhances the quality of the sperm.
Doses & Cycles:
Standard Proviron doses to treat androgen or male fertility will normally fall in the 50-75mg per day range. Normally the total dosing is split into 2-3 25mg doses per day. In androgen deficiency plans, the total dosing almost always starts at 75mg per day and slowly reduces to 25-50mg per day depending on patient need.
In a performance capacity, Proviron doses normally range from 50-150mg per day. Most men, however, will find 100mg per day to be the minimum beneficial dose with both 100mg and 150mg being highly effective. Total use will normally last between 8-12 weeks. However, in an effort to breakthrough a sticking point in a cycle, say towards the end of a cycle a 6 week course of Proviron may do the trick.
