Ciccone MENT Trestolone
Ment Trestolone (17 beta-hydroxy-7 alpha-methylestr-4-en-3-one acetate) it a derivative of nandrolone. This is the base steroid in Deca. Its androgenic/estrogenic character is similar to those of Trenbolone and Deca. However, this synthetic androgen is ten times more potent than testosterone. Trestolone has not been availible on the market for a very long time. Only recently is it being produced by blackmarket manufacturers.
Ment was researched in the 1960’s by pharmaceutical companies. Both as a possible hormone replacement therapy and as a male birth control drug. Although not related to testosterone, Ment is the only steroid that is capable of sustaining normal male physiology in the complete absence of testosterone, including sexual functioning.
Ment gives similar results as testosterone but much more pronounced. There is no doubt that one’s gains will measurably surpass what is attainable with an equal dose of Testosterone. The results people have reported seem similar to Oxymetholone. A lot of bulk with some water retention. Although much less water than Oxymetholone. Users also report hard and fast gains. There exists a debate on whether testosterone and Ment should be taken together. There is no real answer to this question.
Ment in it’s oral form is very liver toxic. The injectable form works much better anyway. The compound has a much higher feedback rate on the hormone system. It also aromatises easily and converts to DHT. for the most part the typical steroid side effects are present. The aromatising side effects can be controlled with Arimidex and the like. Ment also does not have the typical Trenbolone side effects. No night sweats, insomnia or inappropriate aggression. No loss of libido either but rather an increase!.
Ment can be used for bulking or cutting. For bulking it is usually combined with Epistane and/or one of the testosterones. Cutting cycles incorporates the usual Anavar, winstrol and so on. Especially during cutting it makes sense to keep aromatising in check.
Dosage is a difficult one. Many people feel that it should fall in like with Trenbolone guidelines. 200-400mgs per week.
My feeling is that Ment is a cross between Testosterone, Trenbolone and Oxymetholone. It gives look similar to that of testosterone crossed with Oxymetholone. It does seem to share some of the characteristics of Trenbolone but not the side effects.
The most impressive part is its strength when it comes to building muscle. The fact that it is 10x stronger than testosterone is mind blowing. The speed at which it gives results equally impressive. Although downplayed, the side effects is of concern to me. There is always price to pay when it comes to gaining muscle. The more and the faster you gain the greater the side effects. In my option Ment is going to be very hard on the system. 10x stronger is going to mean 10x the side effects. I would put: “Handle with care” should be on the label.
