Anadrol was first introduced to the world as an aid to help people suffering from anemia. Since its launch, successfully used to help treat other diseases concerned with weight loss.
Clearly an effective tool for promoting weight gain, helping to increase appetite, enhancing strength levels, and upping the red blood cell count.
Just like the other anabolic steroids, Anadrol has an underbelly of side-effects including:
- Inhibiting natural testosterone production
- Negatively affecting blood lipid profile
- Long-lasting headaches
- Water retention
- Toxicity to liver
Interestingly, one of the benefits we were told about by Syntex, the company that first manufactured Anadrol, was its effectiveness to help stimulate weight gain through increasing a person’s appetite. But trials have shown that taking too much actually suppress appetite.
Effects on The Body
17-Alpha-Alkylated steroid. Derived from DHT, which means that it is altered at the 17th carbon position in order for it to be orally ingested.
Well that’s the positives done, check out the negatives….
Anadrol Side Effects
Because of the 17th carbon position alteration, Anadrol is able to survive passing through the liver. Taking its toll on the organ.
According to a 30 week study, a significant amount of steroid side effects noted. Although weight gain peaked at week 19 and 20, the remaining 10 weeks were not very remarkable. Although it is highly unlikely that anybody would use for a period of continuous 20 weeks, considering its toxicity, effects in the last 10 weeks were negligible.
Users normally limit use the less than four weeks.
Most users report dramatic results in the first three weeks before leveling off. But during that period, many people experienced bloating, high blood pressure, headaches, and a general feeling of being unwell.
Anadrol, derived from DHT so it is not possible for it to convert to estrogen. While not a progestin and nor does it have any correlation to progestinic activity. A big mystery why it carries estrogenic side effects. Some experts believe that this may be down to the possibility of Anadrol stimulating the estrogen receptor without actually morphing into estrogen itself.
How Anadrol Is Taken
It’s not unusual for Anadrol dose response curve flat lines quite quickly.
By taking 50 mg of Anadrol you could make some impressive gains.
If you move this of the 100 mg of Anadrol, you make even more impressive gains.
But scientists have found that the 100 mg per day threshold is just as effective as 150 mg a day, but with less side-effects and less toxicity.
