History of Trenbolone
Trenbolone Acetate - Synthesized in 1963
The history of Trenbolone or Tren dates back to the early 1960's when in 1963 this androgenic-anabolic steroid (AAS) was synthesized by a French-based pharmaceutical company known as Roussel Uclaf. Trenbolone Acetate was first classified as a veterinary AAS, so the first industry to make good use of this drug was the agricultural industry, as the drug was approved for use on livestock in the 1960's.
By the 1970's, the use of Trenbolone Acetate on cattle was very prevalent in the U.S and Europe. This steroid was used to promote the growth of lean muscle mass in cattle and in effect, increase the volume of beef production.

Trenbolone Acetate as a Performance Enhancement Drug
While there is no official medical use for Trenbolone, by the early part of the 1980's this androgenic-anabolic steroid (AAS) became a popular drug of choice for athletes and bodybuilders. At this time, huge quantities of Tren were illegally supplied from a number of European countries to other parts of the world including the U.S.
However, by the latter part of 1980's the illegal supply of Trenbolone Acetate dropped tremendously due to the increasing awareness by the sporting and general public of its use as a performance enhancing drug in professional sports. There was also an increasing awareness of the possibility of adverse health implications to professional athletes from the continued use and misuse of the drug.
In the history of Trenbolone, users of the drug in competitive sport tend to follow a well timed and carefully thought out Tren cycle. This Tren cycle would offer these athletes all the benefits of using the AAS while still ensuring that they evade detection during a routine drug test.
