We’re going to review the most common brands on the market today.
But first, a little bit of history.
From the first development of methandienone by the Switzerland-based CIBA company in the late 1950s, it was directed at athletic enhancement.
Legendary bodybuilder and Mr. America winner Jim Parks commented on its libido-increasing effects as an early test subject.
Olympic Weightlifting coach and owner of York Barbell Bob Hoffman put it to work with the 1960 U.S. Olympic Team.
The results were promising right out of the gate and word spread among competitive athletes during the 1960s that Dianabol made you bigger and stronger fast.
Soon, American football players and even Arnold Schwarzenegger were using Dianabol as an athletic enhancer.

Dianabol comes in a number of different forms (e.g., pills, sprays, injections) by a variety of brands.
The top Dianabol brands available are:
Also known as methandrostenolone, the various brand names are considered bulking steroids.
This is because users tend to gain a significant amount of water weight along with muscle mass.
The British Dispensary manufactures and distributes Anabol Tablets, which they tout as an “anabolic hormone” designed for cycling for the “promotion of constructive anabolism of proteins.”
Basically, that means muscle building in laymen’s terms. Their Dianabol brand comes in 5mg, 10mg and sometimes 15mg tablets and bottles of 100 that run about $55 American dollars or more.
The company recommends a dose of 25-50mg daily. It also points out the fact that users have had success from dosages ranging from as low as 10mg or as high as 100mg daily and cycles are generally 6-8 weeks long.
As a methandienone anabolic-androgenic steroid, Anabol users benefit from gradually increasing dosages as cycles progress.
The British Dispensary’s website also notes gynecomastia and acne as unwanted side effects. Gynecomastia is the enlargement of breast tissue in men caused by a hormonal imbalance.
Female athletes and fitness enthusiasts should avoid Anabol because it triggers a high level of masculinization characteristics in women such as deepening of the voice, body and facial hair growth to name a few.
The British Dispensary is a certified import-export drug company based out of Thailand. Although the country is considered a veritable haven for bodybuilders, steroids are a controlled substance there.
In reality, Thailand has some of the harshest drug laws and narcotics traffickers can face the death penalty.
Buying or possessing steroids could result in a jail sentence and police do not need a warrant to search you.
A few companies manufacture and distribute Danabol products. Balkan Pharmaceuticals makes pink Dianabol 10mg tablets and markets them in foil as 60-pill packages.
The Eastern European company has ties the Ukraine, Russia and distributes its Dianabol brand in the EU. A 100-tablet bottle can run as low as $20.
March Pharmaceuticals manufactures 10mg tablets called Danabol DS and the product is distributed by Body Research Co. in bottles of 500 pills.
Each dosage comes in the shape of a blue heart and the outfit is based in Thailand. Two bottles run 2,500 baht or about $73 American.
Some sites list it as low as $50 or as high as $135. However, there have been some concerning reviews about the product’s authenticity when purchasing online.
This is a buyer beware situation.
If you’re looking for Dianabol for sale online, be cautious about ordering Melic.
The main problem is that there is an arthritis drug on the market by the same name.
Melic, for arthritis, has a Meloxicam base compound.
You’ll want to look for “Melic P,” produced by Central Poly Trading. This is another Thailand company that sells 5mg tablets in allotments of 1,000.
The pills are pink pentagonal in shape and look similar to Anabol tablets.
Central Poly Trading tends to be an under-the-radar organization and there aren’t many pro or con reviews about the quality of the products. Buying these is basically uncharted waters for many.
Like Melic, Metaboline is a Dianabol brand name that crosses over into non-steroidal products. A French company also makes a thyroid-related gel tablet.
When seeking out a methandienone steroid product, keep in mind that Metaboline is a relatively uncommon trade name.
Dianabol-type steroids are legitimately produced worldwide and buyers should take care to make sure the manufacturer is reputable and the product of good quality.
Methandrostenolon is a common Russian brand name that was manufactured and distributed by Akrikhin (AKPNXNH) as a 5mg tablet.
The round white pills with blue writing come in foil push strips with 10 tablets each and a full box generally has 100 doses.
There have been reports of fake Russian products on the market. Reports indicate that bottles of loose pills may not be authentic. Also, packages in English have been considered suspect by users.
The authentic Russian steroid is considered one of the best Dianabol brand names on the market and on par with the American version as a powerful, quality mass builder.
A box of 100 runs about $65 Euro or $71 American dollars depending on the current exchange rate.
The laws surrounding steroids in Russia are minor compared to the United States and rarely, if ever enforced.
That being said, if you purchase online and have them shipped, the regulations in your country are likely to be triggered.
Much of your Dianabol gains are made up of water retention.
The water weight infuses muscles during workouts that result in tremendous pumps and strength gains.
Unfortunately, “Dbol” also causes overall bloating and high-calorie and high-sodium diets should be avoided.
The water retention issue leads many athletes to stack this medication with lean, muscle-building drugs such as Anavar, Deca Durabolin and Winstrol among others.
Other common side effects associated with methandienone include stress on the liver, suppression of natural hormone production, high blood pressure and cholesterol issues among others.
Methandienone products are far from the most dangerous in this class of medications. Each individual will react differently and users should consult with a physician before taking any steroids.
