Synthol: what is it, how does it work

This drug has put Europe and America on its ears. Judging by the label, an ordinary oil for posing, but you do not blush it, no. You put it in a syringe and you do it yourself. So what is next? Then a miracle! Your muscles are getting bigger! The hand was 40 cm, but it was all 45!

It can not be said that this is the first drug of its kind. After all, there is already an ociclene – you rub it into a muscle, and it also increases. For a long time he was the strictest secret of competitive bodybuilding. It was enough to make yourself a pretty painful injection within 7-10 days before the tournament, and the lagging muscles turned into the most-most … The action of the eczyclene is based on causing damage to the muscles. In places of such damages, lymph flows, and therefore the muscle quite strongly increases its volume. Usually it was used for biceps, triceps, deltas and calves, but they often injected into large muscle groups. The effect is the same.


It is known, that it does not go on advantage, and here what about синтола? There is total darkness here. And this, you will agree, is a dangerous situation for the world of bodybuilding, where no one is ever interested in the potential risk, and if he asks, then only one: where and how much?

So, in the early 90’s, the German bodybuilder and, in combination, chemist Chris Clarke, decided to create an analogue of the ethyclene, which would have operated much longer (the effect of the eczyster is only a couple of days). And he did it! Unlike eccyclene, which gives a cosmetic short-term effect, synthol actually increases muscles, and it does this for a long time.

What is Synthol and what does it consist of?

Synthol is a drug of intermuscular fatty acid, which is a synthetic oil and is injected into a muscle that needs to be increased. The substance penetrates into the spaces between the muscle fibers and stays there. In muscles, about 70 percent of the drug remains, the remaining 30 – immediately decomposed into lipids, just like any other fats that enter the body through the digestive tract. The result of using synthol is maintained on average 3-5 years.

While creating synthol, Clark experimented on his own. He introduced to himself different types of oil solutions, and although it is generally safe, he almost died one day, because he brought an infection into the muscle.

Synthol has a different effect on different muscle groups. It is preferable for the biceps, triceps, deltas. Not the back and chest synthol is not so impressive.

What changes can be observed immediately after the injection of Synthol?

For example, you inject into biceps, and start shaking hands. And they immediately begin to grow. After the first two trainings, they become huge. It does not fit into any normal ideas about muscle growth, and therefore scares some. Further growth continues at the same speed, and you get used to it.

Is Synthol safe?

Imagine that by injecting, you accidentally got into an artery or vein. The oil ball will walk through the circulatory system, threatening, like a cork, to plug the bloodstream. Typical symptoms are acute pain behind the sternum, a jump in blood pressure, suffocation, frequent heartbeats and heart rhythm disturbances.

And if you introduced synthol into the muscle, and then suddenly found out about its toxicity? Back oil from the muscle is not vykovyrnesh.

And in general, with respect to any stimulant in bodybuilding, there is a general rule: the more effective, the higher the risk. Synthol is effective, so it’s dangerous.

In sports medicine there is such a technique. If the muscle is broken, it is injected with a solution of phenol and glucose on the glycerol base. Glycerin delivers glucose, which causes the formation of collagen, and phenol as an anesthetic. Collagen, as it were, seals the torn ends of the muscle fibers, and they coalesce faster. It seems that Chris Clark knew about all this and used a similar scheme.

In the role of glucose, he acts as resorcinol. In the role of anesthetics – chloral hydrate, salicylic acid and lidocaine. And all this again on the basis of glycerin. As a result, healthy muscle fibers are surrounded by a thick layer of callogen, and the muscles fabulously increase their volume. But the whole problem is that oxygen must enter the muscle cells. And how will it act if the cell is sealed in a shell of collagen? It can be assumed that the use of synthol inevitably entails the death of a part of muscle cells from an oxygen deficiency, that is, a decrease in the real muscle mass.
