This compound is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, although its activity is much milder than this androgen in nature. It is technically classified as an anabolic steroid, shown to exhibit a slightly greater tendency for muscle growth than androgenic activity in early studies. While dihydrotestosterone really only provides androgenic side effects when administered, stanozolol instead provides quality muscle growth. The anabolic properties of this substance are still mild in comparison to many stronger compounds, but it is still a ggod, reliable builder of muscle. Its anabolic properties could even be comparable to Dianabol, but Winstrol does not have the same tendency for water retention. Stanozolol also contains the same c17 methylation we see with Dianabol, an alteration used so that oral administration is possible. To spite this design however, there are many injectable versions of this steroid produced.
Since stanozolol is not capable of converting into estrogen, an anti-estrogen is not necessary when using this steroid, gynecomastia is not a concern even among the most sensitive individuals. Since estrogen is also the cause of water retention, instead of bulk look, Winstrol produces a lean, quality look with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention. This makes it a great steroid to use during cutting cycles, when water and fat retention are a major concern. It is also very popular among athletes in combination strength/speed sports such as Track and Field.
Pretty much everything written thus far about Stanozolol injectable was also attributed also to the oral form. It was often said that the oral form is less effective than the injectable. In truth, it was usually due to dosages, and this in turn was due to price. Athletes usually administered a lower dosage orally because it seemed like 25 pills daily was mega dosing. In my personal opinion this was true to a point. Oral use of any 17-alfa-alkylated steroid is hard on the liver. This is because it is difficult for the liver to deactivate these modified testosterone and derivatives. Let me make it clear. Milligram for milligram oral administration of Stanozolol was reported significantly more potent than the injection product (but it is more liver toxic). Oral dosages were commonly broken into 2-3 daily dosages to maintain circulatory androgen elevation. An effective reported daily oral dosage for women was 10-15mg and for men 20-30. However, this listed male dosage was not as effective (or as toxic) as the 30-50mg daily dose range.
Stanozolol is a 17-alpha-alkylated, that’s why for those who take this steroid for a long period of time and in high doses, liver toxicity should be a concern. Due to the liver toxicity it is recommended to those who take this steroid to limit their cycles to six weeks or less. If you decided to run Stanozolol for a longer period of time, you should monitor your liver values via blood test to ensure that no damage occurs.
Other side effects are: acne, prostate enlargement and aggravation of male pattern baldness. As i said earlier, to avoid dramatic side effects the dosage and the time of using should be strictly monitored.
