Anadrol is an orally applicable steroid manufactured by Alpha Pharma containing Oxymetholone as an active chemical substance. Being an 17alpha alkylated oral steroid, it has a considerable and fast action on the increase of muscular mass. Their anabolic effect is quite famous among bodybuilders all over the world. Anadrol is also known for stimulating muscle growth in malnourished or underdeveloped people. Oxymetholone products are on market since the 60s and proved to be of large assistance for athletes and muscle builders. One Anadrol unit contains 50 tabs, each tab containing 50 mg.
Anadrol, as many other Oxymetholone’s is able to enhance the muscle mass in a very short period of time. It also strengthens the human organism and assures a high resistance. With Anadrol the muscle become fuller and the will contract better, and is provided a level of protection in the form of extra water held into and around connective tissues. This allows the body to obtain more elasticity and decrease the chance for injury when doing heavy exercises. However bodybuilders should be aware of its risky side effects. Women are not recommended to use it, due its massive virile effects.
Anadrol Recommended Dosage
Anadrol is a very fast acting steroid and bodybuilders usually begin to notice its effects towards the end of the first week. Because of this, Oxymetholone can make a great kickstart to any bulking cycle. It is important to note that Anadrol can be liver toxic if not used responsibly. Bodybuilders are urged to keep cycles of this steroid short, preferably 6 weeks or less, and to keep doses to 100mg or less daily.
While Oxymetholone will increase appetite in proper doses, this drug has been known to decrease appetite, making it difficult to eat, if abused in higher doses. Some users of this steroid also report headaches. Clearly this is a serious substance that should be treated with respect, but if used properly can be a very useful tool in achieving goals.
Those looking to cycle with Anadrol will typically use it the first 3-6wks of a cycle that also includes an injectable form of Testosterone. For even more superior mass gains, bodybuilders may choose to add another injectable such as Deca or Tren to the cycle. In these cases, mass and strength gains are sure to be nothing less than dramatic. Anadrol will shut down the body’s ability to produce testosterone naturally, therefore making a PCT regime crucial upon discontinued use.
Anadrol Side Effects Bodybuilding
Anadrol is unfortunately also the most harmful oral steroid. Its intake can cause many considerable side effects. Since it is 17-alpha alkylated it is very liver-toxic. Most users can expect certain pathological changes in their liver values after approximately few week.The compound Oxymetholone easily converts into estrogen. This causes signs of feminization (e.g. gynecomastia) and water retention which in turn requires the intake of anti estrogens (e.g. Tamoximed 10 and Provimed) and an increased use of diuretics (e.g. Lasix) before a competition. Bodybuilders who experience a severe steroid acne caused by Anadrol can get this problem under control by using the prescription drug Accutane.
Other possible side effects may include headaches, nausea, vomiting, stomach aches, lack of appetite, insomnia, and diarrhea. The athlete can expect a feeling of “general indisposition” with the intake of Anadrol 50 which is completely in contrast to Danabol 10 which conveys a “sense of well-being”. This often creates a paradoxical situation since the athlete continues to become stronger and bulkier while, at the same time, he does not feel well. The increased aggressiveness is caused by the resulting high level of androgen and occurs mostly when large quantities of testosterone are “shot” simultaneously with the Anadrol. Anadrol is not a steroid for older athletes since they react more sensitively to possible side effects, and the risk of liver damage and prostate cancer increases.
