Anabolic steroids such as stanozolol are synthetic derivatives of the male hormone testosterone. Stanozolol has a pronounced anabolic effect with fewer masculinizing side effects than testosterone or some other synthetic anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids are used in stimulating appetite and increasing weight gain, strength, and vigor. They should be used as Stanozolol (Winstrol) a part of an overall program with other supportive and nutritional therapies.
Brief description of the Stanabol
First, the drug has a huge anabolic coefficient, which is 320% of that of testosterone. Against this background, the drug has a reduced androgenic coefficient – only 30% of the same testosterone.
Because of the decreased androgenic coefficient, the drug is not prone to conversion into estrogens, and hence to the aromatization process.
As already mentioned above, Winstrol is produced in two forms – tablet and injectable, which is also undoubtedly a plus, because the athlete can choose the form that is more acceptable for him.
As for hepatotoxicity, the drug has a moderate negative effect on the liver. The degree of danger does not depend on the form of the drug – and the injectable and tablet forms are hepatotoxic in equal measure. The period of activity of the drug in the human body after consumption is approximately two days.
The period of detection of steroid intake on doping tests is 34 to 36 days.
