It is basically considered as the injectable form of methandrostanolone that does not contains CH3 group. The gains obtained from this steroid are slow, gradual and are of great quality. This steroid does not cause unnecessary water retention as well. Since low percentage of fat is also achieved, a much pumped and veiny look is achieved via using this steroid. The injectable form is mostly used and individuals tend to avoid using the propionate form as it generates major pain even after the second day of intake. Another drawback of taking the propionate is that it can cause influenza. In this condition, the individual feel very hostile such that they are unable to finish the regular training process. Boldenone not only raises the production of protein but it also escalates the level of erythropoietin. This ultimately results in the escalation of amount of red blood cells which leads towards better pumping effect while training. Glycogen and appetite level can also be raised with this practice.
Like other AAS, boldenone is an agonist of the androgen receptor (AR).  The activity of boldenone is mainly anabolic , with a low androgenic potency. Boldenone will increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis, increases appetite and stimulates the release of erythropoietin in the kidneys.  Boldenone was synthesized in an attempt to create a long-acting injectable metandienone , for androgen deficiency disorders. Boldenone acts similar to metandienone with fewer adverse androgenic effects.
