There was no trenbolone hexahydrobenzylcarbonate found in AS Labs Tri-Tren
AS Labs jumped on the bandwagon with the release of a multiple trenbolone ester product. AS Labs Tri-Tren was supposed to contain the acetate, enanthate and hexahydrobenzylcarbonate esters of trenbolone according to the label. Unfortunately, there was no trenbolone hexahydrobenzylcarbonate (tren HBC) to be found.
The label on the AS Labs Tri-Tren packaging promised consumers 50 milligrams of each trenbolone ester for a combined total blend of 150 milligrams per milliliter. AnabolicLab found 48.1 mg/ml trenbolone acetate and 87.7 mg/ml trenbolone enanthate but 0 mg/ml trenbolone HBC.

AS Labs appears to have substituted a cheaper steroid ingredient to replace a more expensive one
Although it is difficult to determine motive, it appears that AS Labs attempted to make up for the absence of the more expensive hexahydrobenzylcarbonate ester by increasing the amount of the less expensive trenbolone enanthate ester in the mixture.
This pushed the total amount of trenbolone esters to 135.8 mg/ml. This was within 10% of the expected 150 mg/ml of trenbolone esters in the mixture. It just wasn’t the same esters listed on the label.
It is doubtful that any consumers would have felt the difference between the substitution of trenbolone enanthate for trenbolone HBC. The two esters act similarly.
But that is not the point. Thanks to independent lab testing, consumers know when a manufacturer fails to live up to its promises.
