Anabolic steroids such as Stanabol are synthetic derivatives of the male hormone testosterone. Stanozolol has a pronounced anabolic effect with fewer masculinizing side effects than testosterone and some other synthetic anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids are used in stimulating appetite and increasing Stanozolol (Winstrol) weight gain, strength, and vigor. They should be used as a part of an overall program with other supportive and nutritional therapies.
Winstrol currently occupies a special place not in the market of sports pharmacology. Winstrol is available in two forms – injection and tablet. In general, the pharmacological properties of both forms are similar, but there are also some differences between them, so the injectable and tablet form of the drug are considered most often separately. The active component of the drug is sianozolol, a synthetic steroid substance that affects the growth rates of muscle tissue.
Winstrol appeared on the pharmaceutical market in 1962. Initially, it was used in horse racing, to increase endurance, speed, strengthen the bone system and recruit musculation of running horses. Then it was taken for medical purposes to treat anemia, accelerate the regeneration processes in the postoperative period, improve appetite, etc. The active component of the drug (stanozolol) is a progesterone antagonist. There is even an opinion that Winstrol protects the body from the progestagenic effects of nandrolone. In the injectable version, Winstrol also has one very important difference from other steroids: the active substance is not dissolved in oil, as in most injectable steroids, but in water, which allows stanozolol to get into the bloodstream faster and, therefore, to get into work faster.
Analogues: Stanover, Strombofort, Nabolik, Strombageject, Stanazolik, Menabol, Terabon, Stromb, Stanol, Cetabon, etc.
In the tablet form, the preparation has high bioavailability and resistance. Like most tableted steroids, Winstrol has one very significant disadvantage – it does not break down when passing through the liver due to the alkyl group in the alpha-17 position, which makes the drug hepatotoxic. Although in this respect the difference between the injectable and tablet form of Winstrol is not that great, injections can also have an adverse effect on the liver.
