Trestolone is better known as Ment, 7 alpha-methyl-19-nortestosterone (MENT), a synthetic steroid (hormone) that is potentially more powerful than testosterone.

It was born in 1963 in an attempt to create a male contraceptive, from here we must immediately understand that it greatly suppresses the pituitary-gonadal axis, therefore stimulatory therapy will be required after its use. Many contraceptive methods involve the use of drugs that affect the secretion of hormones essential for reproduction. Androgens as Trestolone acetate can be used in fertility control methods for men, as they block the secretion of gonadotropins.

Here is what foreign andrology tells us about this hormone:

  • Trestolone is a synthetic androgen that inhibits the release of follicle-stimulating hormone and impairs spermatogenesis.
  • Luteinizing hormone, which reduces testosterone production, is also suppressed.
  • Azoospermia and oligospermia are reversible after discontinuation of trestolone.
  • Trestolone has androgenic and anabolic properties and no loss of secondary sexual characteristics is observed.
  • Like testosterone, trestolone undergoes enzymatic aromatization into estrogen.

The use of trestolone instead of testosterone for androgen replacement therapy could have health-promoting effects by reducing the occurrence of prostate disease. Trestolone had been in Phase II clinical trial for the control of andropause. However, this development was stopped.

Another important feature of MENT is that it does not undergo a reduction by 5 alpha-reductase in the prostate like testosterone.

Consequently, a dose of MENT sufficient to maintain normal muscle mass and gonadotropin secretion will not overstimulate the prostate because its action in this organ is not as amplified as that of testosterone. Therefore, MENT can be given to men with the confidence that they will be less prone to causing prostate disease than testosterone.

Trestolone has unparalleled anabolic power, we are talking about an anabolic power of 960 against 165 of androgenic power compared to Trenbolone which has a rating of 600/200 (respectively anabolic-androgenic). Trestolone has a spectacular anabolic activity useful for mass gain

Trestolone is a derivative of nandrolone, it looks a lot like this molecule, differentiating itself by a 7-alpha-methyl bond, a very important characteristic. It prevents this molecule from undergoing the action of 5 alpha-reductase, which happens to nandrolone. Although nandrolone is a very powerful hormone, it is the 5-alpha reduction that makes it weaker.

Trestolone is therefore aromatized in 7 alpha-methyl – estradiol, but we must not see this aromatization as a great enemy. Indeed, this estrogenic activity linked to aromatization could be the cause of the greater strength caused by trestolone compared to other steroids.

Trestolone was born for male contraceptive purposes and therefore clearly causes suppression of testicular steroidogenesis and spermatogenesis higher than that of testosterone.

Trestolone is methylated 7 alpha imposition which gives it good resistance to the hepatic passage, ie the liver, and is also able to inhibit the activity of binding proteins and sex hormones the SHBG further increasing the potency, in the latter case very reminiscent of the activity of Proviron.

With regard to liver damage, it has been seen that this is null in the dosage of 50 mg per day while increasing to 100 mg per day begins to occur. The dose that bodybuilders usually use, associated with testosterone and other drugs, is 50 mg per day, for 8 weeks, it is ingested in liquid form, in the form of Trestolone Acetate. The mass gain is at least 3 -5 kg per course.
