I think this claim merits some scrutiny. Testosterone replacement therapy has been in use for 60 years. And remember, the goal of legitimate TRT is to return a persons t-level to the normal range (300 -1080 ng/dl), it is not to raise the levels beyond this range for the purposes of improving athletic performance. Clinical trials have validated the safety and efficacy of supplemental testosterone. I don't believe the same can be said of ANY anabolic steroid.
