Synthol is one of the most controversial substances used in bodybuilding. It was designed in the early 90s by inventor and German bodybuilder, Chris Clark. When site enhancement oils first arrived on the market for the first time, it was regarded with mistrust and skepticism. Most of the criticisms of the product were moral, such as “is it cheating?”. The fact was that Synthol local muscle enlargement; can produce great results right away, but these results are temperary. That means some versions of synthol is purely cosmetic. Does increase strength and other motor capacities, and will increase muscle growth.
There are only proprietary active ingredient, but an oily substance that the body has a hard time metabolize. How it works is very simple. It applys the solution into a small muscle group (biceps, calves, etc.) and it will remain there for a long time, the body is not able to eliminate it. It has so much in that muscle group that will be encapsulated between muscle fascia. With multiple applications, a large storage solution will accumulate in the muscles, increasing them. It will take years until the body eliminate substance, which gives the impression of firm and permanent muscle. Can be seen increases of 3 cm in the muscle where it is applied.
At first, it was said that what Synthol contains a synthetic oil is impossible to duplicate. But being analyzed in detail, it has been shown that, in fact, contains a mixture of a specific chain of C8-C12 fatty acids among other growth supplements. This oil is mixed with small amounts of lidocaine, a local anesthetic to reduce pain on application. It also contains less alcohol antimicrobial effect. In other words it is a solution for applications of triglycerides, which is much cheaper than Synthol; but the myth created around him increased and price.
Currently there are numerous products Synthol, each with a different name. In some countries even sells sporting goods stores, as uleuri topical bodybuilding competitions; those oils that give bodybuilders competitions to highlight the muscle groups.
Injection Synthol in large muscle groups, leading to a nepalcut aspect, appearing knots and generally look uneven. Therefore those who use it, apply generally biceps, triceps, shoulders and legs. Standard procedure is to apply 1 ml of substance deep mid targeted muscle group. The process is repeated daily for a week, maybe 10 days. If you do not show the desired effects, the dose is increased to 2.5 ml – 3 ml, all for a week. Then do one applyion 1-2 weeks maximum. Although the effects are not permanent, they can maintain a good period of time, giving the impression that those muscles are there permanently.
This practice is not without risks. Long-term effects are not teas, but infections can occur, lejzari and abscesses. Also, you have the misfortune to hit a vein and apply the solution into it, defending many risky complications, depending on where it goes substance (lungs, heart, brain). There are too many unanswered questions for this product to be recommended.
But despite the risks, many are looking at Synthol and until people will not start because of complications present, which seems not happen, will be a popular product in bodybuilding, but taboo.
