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. [ medical citation needed ] Although commonly compared to nandrolone , boldenone lacks progesterone receptor interaction and associated progestogenic side effects.
Men get good results from a 300-600mg weekly total. Recently, companies like British Dragon have begun offering Boldenone in a much higher concentration (200mgs/ml) making injections much easier. Women have made excellent progress with dosages of 50-100mg total weekly doses, and this usually means a 1 injections weekly schedule. Women as a rule, seem to prefer less scar-tissue build up than men are comfortable with. In this dose range, women almost never report virilizing side effects, and usually only experienced an elevated libido. Increased hair growth on face and legs is, of course, possible (though not probable)..
