true. testosteron is a better protein anabolisant than estradiol..

Oops sorry...I mean androsterone and testosterone. Testosterone is known as an anabolic steroid because of it's potential to build up muscle mass. Usually this hormone is given to prevent muscle athrophy to cecrtain disseases after being cured. But now, testosterone is misused commonly especially in bodybuilder (like instant noodle..:lol: ).
