Winstrol (active ingredient – stanozolol) – anabolic steroid available in tablets and solution for injection (Winstrol Depot). Winstrol was developed in 1962 in Winthrop Laboratories. It is a synthetic steroid derivative of dihydrotestosterone approved by the FDA for use by people (stanozolol originally was developed for use in animals (horses)). Stanozolol is an antagonist of progesterone. There is evidence that the drug protects against the action of progestogen nandrolone. Unlike most forms of stanozolol injection is an aqueous suspension.
Synonyms: Strombafort, Stanover, Nabolik, Stanazolik, Strombadzhekt, Stromba, Menabol, stanols, Terabon, Tsetabon and others.

Winstrol tablets have high bioavailability and stability (in the liver is not destroyed during the passage) through the alkyl group in the 17-alpha position, but it does stanozolol tablets toxic to the liver. However, the injectable form is also not devoid of this shortcoming, the difference in the toxicity and bioavailability of both forms of the steroid is minimal.

  • Pain in large joints and ligament damage are the most frequent complications. To minimize the risk of stanozolol should be combined with testosterone and deck. Read more here. It is also used special additives to ligaments and joints.
  • The rise in blood pressure – is eliminated by taking antihypertensive agents (enalapril).

    Since Winstrol is a derivative of DHT, can androgenic side effects: hair loss on the head, acne, suppression of natural testosterone and others.
  • Toxicity to the liver – is manifested by the alpha-17-alkylation. A study in dogs demonstrated pronounced protective effect of milk thistle extract (gepatoprotektor).
  • Myocardial hypertrophy – especially at high doses.

Winstrol is very popular in bodybuilding, because its action is different from most steroids. The drug has little effect on body weight, but gives prominence of the muscles, strengthens the venous prorisovannost and burns fat, so it is used mainly during the courses “drying”.

  • A significant increase in strength and endurance – a valuable effect in powerlifting and athletics.
  • Burning fat.
  • Increased appetite.
  • Removing excess fluid from the body.
  • According to the scientific tests, oral stanozolol in an amount of 0.2 mg per kilogram weight lifter lowers binding globulin anabolic hormones, 50%. This means that the reception performance of other steroids in combination with stanozolol increase significantly.
  • It is assumed the presence of antiestrogen and antiprogestagennogo effects (competitive inhibition of progesterone receptors)
