Can BioPrimo® (Primobolan) Increase Free Testosterone?

by Cecilia Lodi on July 13, 2023

When people hear the word ‘testosterone’, they automatically associate it with Alpha males, unshaken confidence, and big muscles. It may sound unbelievable, but these are just a few of the benefits males get from optimized testosterone levels. Hence, it is considered the most important male sex hormone. And regardless of gender, it is one of the most significant organic compound in the human body.

Testosterone, however, takes many forms. Some types are bioavailable, which means they are readily used by the body, while other forms are inactive. This is influenced by your way of life and might have an impact on how you think and feel. Too much sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), for example, might lower free testosterone, resulting in poor libido and other symptoms. This is why some men try to find ways to lower their SHBG levels, or take supplements that will compete against testosterone in binding with SHBG, thus increasing the percentage of circulating free testosterone in the blood.

If you want to learn how to raise your body’s ACTIVE testosterone levels, continue reading. You’ll learn more about testosterone bioavailability and why it’s so important for your health.


Types of Testosterone

Your doctor will tell you your average testosterone levels if you get a testosterone test.
Men’s testosterone levels should be between 350 and 1,100 nanograms per deciliter.
You may be diagnosed with hypogonadism if your total testosterone level is less than 350 ng/dL. (testosterone deficiency). This, however, is your blood’s total testosterone level, which can be divided into 3 types.

Free testosterone- also called, “unbound testosterone”, it comprises about 2% of your total testosterone level. This type readily affects your muscles, brain, and other parts of your body.

Albumin-bound testosterone- accounts for roughly a third of your total testosterone. Albumin is a protein that binds to testosterone weakly and transports it through the bloodstream. Because the affinity of testosterone to albumin is very low, it releases the androgen whenever the body requires it.
So when you hear the term "bioavailable testosterone”, this refers to the maximum quantity of testosterone that your body can use. This is the combined amounts of Free testosterone and Albumin bound testosterone in the blood.

SHBG-bound testosterone- consists roughly 2/3 or 60-80% of your total testosterone, and is considered to be inactive. Testosterone is tightly bound to SHBG making it impossible to dissociate even when the body needs it. High levels of SHBG are usually associated with low levels of free testosterone. This translates to having less testosterone available for your muscles, brain, and organs. Lower levels of free testosterone can also negatively influence your mood and libido. 


BioPrimo® and SHBG

Also popularly known as Methenolone Enanthate or Primobolan, BioPrimo® is an injectable anabolic used by physique enthusiasts and athletic individuals to encourage increased lean muscle mass, prevent muscle wastage and enhance physical performance and strength.
What other fitness people are not aware of is that besides binding to androgen receptors to augment its muscle building and performance-enhancing effects, Primobolan Enanthate also frees up your naturally circulating testosterone. How BioPrimo® does it? Read on.

Clinical studies have shown that SHBG can bind to different hormones aside from testosterone. With increasing levels of the three steroids dihydrotestosterone (DHT), testosterone (T), and estradiol (E2), saturation tests on sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) were conducted. The highest binding capacity was found in DHT, followed by T, and then E2. And BioPrimo® being a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derivative, wins the race against testosterone and estradiol in attaching to SHBG steroid-binding sites. The result? More free testosterone in the body to support significant muscle hypertrophy, fast recovery after training, and maintain one’s overall well-being.

Our recommended dose of BioPrimo® (Primobolan) for physically active males is 0.5 ml twice a week. If you’re using other anabolic supplements, Monday and Thursday are the best days to administer it. Your total dose is comparable to 100 mg each week at 100 mg/ml.

BioPrimo® (Primobolan) is indicated for non-professional competitors at a dose of up to 1 ml twice a week. When incorporated into your bulking or recomposition routine, use Monday and Thursday. This is the equivalent of a 200 mg weekly dose.
