Does TDT Tropin® contain parabens?

First, a paraben is a general term for any compound that has a benzyl ring with a methly, ethyl, propyl or even phenyl group attached but on the opposite side as is found normally (naturally).

Second, these compounds have been found to be detrimental in large quantities but still required by regulators in production of creams and lotions to prevent bacterial or fungal or viral growth.

Now, to answer your concern:
1. The amount of methyl paraben found in TransD was so negligible, it was barely detectable.
2. The amount in question was less than most things you use everyday in everyday life.
3. The amount actually is no longer an issue because all parabens were taken out of TransD and all our products as of April 2008. This was done ONLY because of confusion among the consumer population regarding the above issues.

Do I need to worry about delivery of my product during Hot and Cold months?

The issue of temperature sensitivity of TDT Tropin is a very commonly asked question so I will elaborate on this topic in detail. It is important to remember that protein denatures at 105 to 106 degrees. However, this is often misunderstood. The core temperature has to reach 105 to 106 degrees. This does NOT mean however that protein will denature if the ambient temperature reaches 105 or 106 degrees.

For example, a person can go into a sauna that is 170 degrees and be in there for 30 minutes or more without any protein denaturing or any other types of problems. But that 170 degrees is only indicative of the ambient environmental temperature. It is not indicative of the actual core temperature of the individual. However, if the person’s core temperature goes to 105 or 106, the protein of the body will begin to denature.

For this reason, we recommend that Tran-D Tropin not be left in a closed locked car during a hot summer day because the internal temperature of the bottle can reach 105 or 106 degree although the ambient temperature within the car may actually have to get to 180 to 190 degrees or more for the core temperature to get to 105 or 106 degrees.

On the opposite extreme, cold is not nearly an issue. Although it is not advisable to freeze TDT Tropin, it will not cause any problem as long as it is thawed out at room temperature gradually. If TDT Tropin is ever frozen, do NOT thaw it out using any type of heat. Simply allow the bottle to return to room temperature naturally and on its own without any manipulation. Do not reheat it.

The ideal temperature for TDT Tropin to be stored for longer than a 24 hour period is simply at room temperature. If TDT Tropin is not going to be used for a few months, then you can place it in a cooler area or even in a refrigerator but only if it is not being used for a few months and is necessary to be stored. Always remember to shake the bottle well prior to usage.
