Winstrol is one of the most popular steroids among avid gym rats, individuals who are simply trying to build a better looking corpse; one that is lean yet more muscular, not necessarily huge but simply more appealing. A Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derivative Winstrol is an esterless DHT 17-Alpha-Alkylated (17-aa) oral anabolic steroid. The Stanozolol hormone is also available in an injectable configuration known as Winstrol Depot but it is the oral tablet we are concerned with here. As a DHT anabolic steroid Winstrol does not aromatize which is a very welcomed attribute and further means any muscle tissue gained, while low will be pure lean tissue. Anabolic steroid is by its nature, Winny as it is most commonly known is highly anabolic, more so than many steroids but possesses very little to almost no androgenic nature. Through its anabolic power the Stanozolol hormone greatly increases nitrogen retention and dramatically enhances protein synthesis, key components to the performance game.
While those are significant factors there is another trait that is far more interesting and one that may hold greater importance when we think of performance enhancement and it is a trait shared with another DHT anabolic steroid Proviron. Like Proviron, Winstrol greatly lowers SHBG and the first question might be why is this important? As SHBG lowers, more testosterone is made available, your free testosterone levels increase. Further, the lower SHBG is the more freely other anabolic steroids you are taking are allowed to be, they are not as restricted and remain active at a higher level of efficiency. Of course this would assume youre supplementing with other anabolic steroids in conjunction with your Winstrol and as youll later see this should be your preference.
Like most oral anabolic steroids Winstrol is a 17-aa configuration, meaning it has been altered at the 17th carbon position. It is this restructuring that allows the hormone to perform; it allows it to survive ingestion, without the 17-aa structural change the hormone would be largely destroyed. For example, oral Primobolan is not a 17-aa steroid and for this reason it is far weaker than Primobolan Depot, so much so youd need insane amounts to equal the strength of a low portion of the depot form. Anabolic steroid a 17-aa steroid Winstrol is able to survive the first pass through the liver where it would otherwise be destroyed but unfortunately this alteration is also very hepatic, in-fact, Winstrol is one of the most hepatic steroids anyone will ever use.
Anaboic steroids is also common with most oral anabolic steroid Winstrol has a very short half-life. The half-life of this steroid is approximately a mere 9 hours and thats not very large by any stretch. Because the half-life of Winstrol is so little frequent administration is necessary oral Winstrol should necessarily be ingested on a daily basis and for those who have smaller milligram tablets available we highly recommend splitting the portion into two equal doses per daytime for maximum efficiency.
