Parabolan was reported by many to be the most effective injectable anabolic/androgenicsteroid available in the 80's. It disappeared for many years after that, and seemingly as a result, it's popularity increased ten-fold. While it is true that Parabolan provided users with a very rapid increase in strength and quality muscle, users often exagerated their claims as the decades wore on. The drug does not aromatize to estrogen or reduce to DHT and as such, it was thought to have provided users with very clean (water-free) gains. In fact, it may be due to it's exceptionally strong receptor binding, as well, because that has been proven to increase fat-burning. For those reasons, there was never any noted water retention or feminizing effects from Parabolan. This made it a highly prized Precontest drug, and no 80's precontest cycle would have been complete without it. A very hard, ripped, and vascular look with a dramatic increase inquality muscle mass resulted for all that were able to take advantage of parabolan while it was available.
Even in the 80's it was rare to find real Parabolan, because of the many fakes floating around the black market. An easy way to tell if a product contains trenbolone is that it can leave a tin-like taste in your mouth after injecting one ml of it. Three mls of it is often enough to gag people, or start severe coughing fits.. This product needs to be heavily engaged by the kidneys, so water intake ought to be increased commesurately.
Parabolan was commonly stacked with several other compounds like testosterone (to avoid sexual dysfunction), growth hormone, thyroid medication(to compensate for Parabolan's ability to lower one's thyroid levels), and/orClenbuterol during diet periods for the synergistic effects. Literature availabble at the time reccomended 76-152-mg Parabolan weekly, for a cutting cycle, or a high quality bulking cycle. Women were reccomended by that same literature to avoid this drug.
