1-testosterone cypionate (dihydroboldenone), or DHB for short, is an anabolic steroid that has some unique properties of interest to bodybuilders. Interestingly, in spite of the fact that the name can be confusing, in no way is DHB testosterone. In fact, it is simply the 5alpha reduced form of Equipoise (boldenone), which acts in a completely different way. Therefore, you can think of it as a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) version of equipoise.
On paper, DHB has an anabolic to androgenic ratio of 200/100. If these figures don’t tell you much, we can remind you that testosterone’s ratio is exactly 100 (1[00:10]0), so DHB is twice as anabolic as testosterone. However, lets not forget that ratios given to anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) can be misleading. Hence, DHB is actually very minimally androgenic, so such side effects as aggression and blood pressure are going to be lower than with other steroids. Moreover, compared to other compounds, DHB is very mild, so it does not cause major stress on the kidneys.
