MENT (Trestolone acetate) is a 19-Nor substance making it a nandrolone derivative. It is very similar to Nandrolone, except it has a 7-alpha-methyl molecule attached to it. This prevents it from being 5-alpha-reduced. 5-alpha-reduction makes Nandrolone (which is a very potent hormone), much weaker. Trenbolone which is a Nandrolone derivative without 5-alpha-reduction is known as a very strong androgen. Due to Trenbolone’s triple double bond structure, meaning it does not aromatize. MENT on the other hand is capable of aromatizing which results in users still realizing the benefits of estrogen; extra strength, better glycogen uptake, upgrading of androgen receptor, and increased GH and IGF1.
MENT is known to be stronger than testosterone. Its androgenic characteristics are like trenbolone (with the same side-effects of hair loss, prostate hypertrophy, acne, deepening of voice) and its estrogenic characteristics are that of Nandrolone (same risk of side-effects such as gynocomastia, water retention and fat gain).
MENT has been found to be of perfect use for both testosterone replacement therapy for men, as well as male contraception (as it doesn’t suffer from the libido suppressing drawback that Nandrolone).
Given the short half-life of MENT and the short ester, daily injections would be required. In most cycles we would utilize an average of around 50-75 mg per day of testosterone seeing as though most users take around 350-500 mg/week). The same results could be obtained with 25-50 mg per day of MENT. The drug aromatizes like Nandrolone, and it aromatizes to 7-alpha-methyl-estradiol. Those prone to estrogen-related side-effects should utilize 1 mg per day of arimidex or 2.5 mg per day of letrozole to eliminate these effects. The androgenic effects of MENT can be quite strong, so acne is a cause for concern, men prone to male pattern hair loss or prostate problems should be cautious. MENT is not affected by 5-alpha-reductase, so anti-hairloss drugs such as Proscar will have no effect.
MENT can be stacked with testosterone (350-500 mg), Methandrostenolone (40 mg/day), Oxymetholone (50-100 mg/day) or Boldenone (200-800 mg/week). It is not recommended to stack with Nandrolone, as it is considered to be weaker than MENT, with similar action but far less androgenic potential. Stanazolol (50 mg/day) may be well stacked with MENT due to the progestagenic properties.
