The Oxymetholone hormone known, as Anadrol, is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) steroid, It is also a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) anabolic steroid. This refers to a structural change of the hormone at the 17th carbon position that allows it to be orally ingested. Without the change the majority of the hormone would be destroyed before any benefit could be obtained. Unfortunately, this also makes Anadrol toxic to the liver.
Effects of Anadrol 50 are without question some of the strongest among anabolic. This is largely considered one of the most powerful steroids in existence, especially on the prescription market, and the results will be rapid. Anadrol is one of the premier mass building steroids, and it will significantly boost the individual’s strength. This steroid is so rapidly powerful it is not uncommon for the individual to gain as much as 20-30lbs in as little as 4-6 weeks of total use. Some of this will undoubtedly be water weight. Anadrol is a non-aromatizing steroid, but it is one of the few non-aromatizing steroids and one of the only DHT compounds that is highly estrogenic. Water retention can be controlled, but this will take some effort.
Most common time a performance enhancing athlete will supplement with Anadrol is at the frontend of a new mass gaining or off-season phase. Often referred to as kick-starting, this will produce rapid gains while the are building in your system. This brings us to an important point; Anadrol is not a base steroid but rather a secondary steroid that can be added to a total stack. Those who use Anadrol alone will find rapid gains occur, but they will find they disappear just as fast when the cycle does not continue with base steroids like Testosterone, or Nandrolone or Trenbolone.
