Omnadren is a popular testosterone mixture comprised of four different testosterones each with its own unique ester. In almost every way Omnadren is for all intense purposes identical to the more popular Sustanon-250. The majority of Omnadren popularity derived out of its use in Europe thanks to Jelfa Pharmaceuticals out of Poland as it was highly available there at one time, as well as in Russia and other Eastern European countries. However, as this steroid grew in popularity several underground labs began manufacturing this mixture world-wide but as is often common it would become one of the most highly counterfeited steroids of all time. Without question there is more counterfeit Omnadren on the market than not and while Sustanon-250 is highly available many still chance a batch of Omnadren due to it being far cheaper.
Omnadren consist of four testosterones and when we understand testosterone and the esters attached we can than understand this steroid in a very simple way. A simple compound, Omnadren consists of the following giving a total of 250mg/ml of testosterone:
- 30mg Testosterone-Propionate
- 60mg Testosterone-Phenylpropionate
- 60mg Testosterone-Isocaproate
- 100mg Testosterone-Caproate
As you can see this is almost identical to the Sustanon-250 mixture, the only difference lying in the longest ester Caproate. While Omnadren carries 100mg of Testosterone-Caproate Sustanon-250 carries 100mg of the long ester based testosterone Testosterone-Decanoate. Caproate is a long ester that will provide a much longer active duration than say the short Propionate ester, however it is a much shorter ester than Decanoate; this difference is evident by each steroid mixtures total half-life; Sustanon-250 carries a half-life of approximately 16 days while Omnadren will prove to be a few days less.
The Benefits of Omnadren:
Omnadren will provide the same benefits as all testosterone forms be they single ester compounds such as Testosterone-Enanthate or a mixture such as Sustanon-250 or Testoviron. A common misconception is that certain testosterones are more powerful than others when in truth the active hormone is the same regardless of the form you choose. The difference lies within the ester(s) attached as this determines the steroids active duration and initial impact it has on the body.
The greatest benefit regarding Omnadren is a steady release of testosterone over a long period of time after one single injection. This concept was applied when Sustanon-250 was first compounded; the idea was to provide a testosterone that would only need to be injected once per month so that an individual on testosterone replacement therapy could inject less frequently. With a mixture of short, moderate and long esters this became easy to accomplish; however, for the athlete it is of little use when only administered once per month. A performance enhancing athlete necessarily must inject Omnadren or Sustanon-250 at least every three days in even doses if they are going to maintain peak yet stable blood levels with every other day being far more efficient due to the Propionate ester being part of the mix. Even so, for a hormone replacement therapy patient the time release principles that spread over a long period of time can be very beneficial.
Beyond its time releasing properties, like all testosterone forms Omnadren is both highly anabolic and androgenic thereby apt to provide massive increases in both strength and size. By enabling the body to increase nitrogen stores in the muscle, thereby increasing protein synthesis, as well as testosterones ability to dramatically increase IGF 1 production, a very anabolic hormone in its own right, Omnadren like all testosterones is one of the purest steroids for strength and mass purposes. Further, because testosterone readily blocks and reduces muscle wasting hormones in the body and aids in dissipating stored body-fat it is a fantastic steroid for dieting purposes for any individual, athlete or not.
The Side-Effects of Omnadren:
As is with all testosterones and all medications steroidal and non-steroidal alike Omnadren carries with it possible negative side-effects. The side-effects of Omnadren are the same as any testosterone; no better and no worse. As testosterone (all forms) converts to estrogen via the aromatase process common anabolic steroid associated side-effects can occur such as Gynecomastia, increased blood pressure, as well as cholesterol issues and testicular atrophy. While testicular atrophy occurs in all who use testosterone it will reverse once use is discontinued when used responsibly. Testicular atrophy occurs because by administering exogenous testosterone our bodies are no longer required to produce their own; as testosterone is produced in the testicles, once production comes to a halt they simply shrink; once production begins again they return to their normal size. Beyond testicular atrophy, which will assuredly occur, other common side-effects are easily avoidable. As most side-effects are due to estrogen conversion by taking an aromatase inhibitor in conjunction with our testosterone we can prevent the estrogen from binding as well as reduce the amount in the body. Further and most importantly, with proper diet rich in healthy fats we can largely protect against blood pressure and cholesterol issues.
Omnadren & Sustanon-250:
They’re on every message board, guys who swear they get better results from Omnadren than Sustanon-250 or vice-versa. The truth, if both are legitimate, neither is fake, both are pure and all other things remain constant, the results you get from one will be identical to the other. One is not more powerful than the other, they both contain the same active testosterone hormone, they both contain the same level of potency; however, purity varies from brand to brand and most do not recognize this; further, different stacks will provide different results and this is often neglected in the thought process. There is however one other factor that comes into play that leads some to believe Omnadren is the more powerful or better choice; because it contains the Caproate ester it will peak your testosterone levels faster than Sustanon-250, so initially you’ll feel a bigger bump (assuming your product is real.) However, over the course of several weeks and months this will prove to be meaningless as blood levels will be identical with either assuming the same dose and administration frequency is used.
Omnadren Cycles & Doses:
Omnadren is a fine choice for any cycle be it cutting or bulking as it is simply testosterone. Most anabolic steroid users build their cycles around a foundation of testosterone as it is not only generally well-tolerated by healthy adult men but important for bodily function when other anabolic steroids are used in a stack. Many steroid users will often use nothing but testosterone and if there is only one steroid you’re going to use testosterone is and should always be your first choice.
For the purpose of hormone replacement therapy or related programs, doses will vary but they will very rarely ever go over 250mg per week and will more commonly be far less. However, for the athlete, for the first time user 500mg per week is a good rule of thumb. While this is a good dose for a beginner it will often prove to be all many will ever need to use; outside of bodybuilding and power lifting circles there is rarely a need to go beyond this amount. However, for the hardcore 1,000mg per week can be successfully administered and continued for an extended period of time; some will go higher but understand the higher you go the greater the risks.
Most will find 12-16 week cycles of Omnadren to be perfect and generally well-tolerated; however, a proper post cycle plan is of great importance. Because Omnadren carries long esters you will need to wait approximately 3 weeks after your last injection before you begin Nolva and/or Clomid therapy. Many will also use hCG as part of their post cycle plan, this is highly recommended; if applied it will necessarily start approximately 10 days before your Nolva/Clomid therapy begins.
