Carbopol became popular about 3 years ago when Xcel Sports Nutrition started including this ingredient in all of their prohormone supplements. Carbopol helps to release smaller amounts of the prohormone compound over time instead of all at once like most products on the market. This allows two things to happen. Number one it allows more of the steroid compound to get into the bloodstream and less going to waste. Number two it helps lower the risk of side effects since less of the compound is entering the bloodstream at one time. Both of these are huge benefits when taking a pro-hormone supplement. First it lets you run smaller dosages with most of the compound entering the bloodstream. Second it’s easier on your bank account because you don’t need to run as much to see results.
What is carbopol
Carbopol are polymers of acrylic acid cross-linked with polyalkenyl ethers or divinyl glycol. The readily water-swellable Carbopol polymers are used in a diverse range of pharmaceutical applications. Carbopol polymers offer consistent performance over a wide range of desired parameters. Although Carbopol polymers have enjoyed success in controlled-release solid dose formulations since the 1960s, the number of companies developing and commercializing controlled-release tablets using Carbopol polymers has increased significantly in recent years. In essence, Carbopol is a time-release agent added to prohormone supplements in order to release the compounds over a longer period of time. This sustained release action mimics the body’s own production of hormones, which improves efficacy and absorption. In fact, Carbopol may increase effectiveness of pro-hormones by up to 100%! This means that designer steroids that include Carbopol are far more effective at building muscle and decreasing body fat.
