Dianabol Methandrostenolone is a combination of Testosterone and a variety of chemical modifications.
This reduced the androgenic side effects, making the steroid medicinal valuable while adding protection for passage through the liver.
Although, Dianabol is illegal to purchase in the UK and US, a doctor can prescribe the steroid for medical reasons.
Despite the fact, Dr. John Ziegler, added a protective compound to help protect the liver.
When Dianabol (Methandienone) is prescribed as a medication, the dosage is much smaller and amount of time is very limited, compared to those who use it for bulking and athletic purposes.
Dianabol Methandrostenolone is the most well known anabolic steroid from the Methandrostenolone family, this steroid contains extremely strong anabolic compounds and it offers a semi mild androgenic rating.
Even though the androgenic rating is mildly low, the androgenic nature is a little stronger than the steroid rating implies; Dianabol Methandrostenolone has an anabolic rating of 90-210 and a androgenic rating of 40-60.
This compares to Anadrol with an anabolic/androgenic rating of 320/45.
The rating is measured by the pure amount of testosterone, in any anabolic steroid, the standard rating for all anabolic steroids carry a rating of 100 for both anabolic and androgenic.
Each steroid is rated by 10 categories, ranking from 1 to 10 with 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest. Trenbolone has the highest rating of 500/500, which is five times stronger than the base of Testosterone.
With certain steroids such as Dianabol, you may be wondering how it can have an anabolic rating of 210 when 100 should be the highest.
Methandienone steroids have a short life, therefore, they are taken numerous times a day increasing the amount of testosterone in the body when it peaks.
Dianabol (Methandienone) has a half-life of 4 to 6 hours. Dosages must well thought-out especially because of the negative effects it has on the liver. The higher dose of Dianabol Methandrostenolone the higher the chance of liver damage.
For athletes and bodybuilders the recommended dosage is 5mg to 30mg for a maximum of six weeks.
However, it is well known that users do not follow the recommended dosage (at least for long); once they start to see results they increase the dosage.
The majority of people who have been using Dianabol Methandrostenolone for an extended period of time usually take 30mg to 50mg a day.
However, some users have been known to take 80mg or more a day – these are professional bodybuilders or athletes who are being monitored by the team’s physicians.
Chances are the readers are not professional athletes therefore as a beginner using any more than 10mg to 20mg is not advised and can be extremely dangerous.
Intermediate/non-monitored experienced users should not take more than the 30-50mg a day.
Dianabol (Methandienone) side effects include the following – The most significant side effects are the Estrogen related side effects.
This includes bloating and retaining water, an increase in blood pressure, acne, oily skin and a condition called gynecomstia (the development of breasts.)
Dianabol (Methandrostenolone) can also produce androgenic side effects.
Which can include male baldness, oily skin, acne, and benign prostatic hyperplasia (“Benign prostatic hyperplasia is nonmalignant (non cancerous) enlargement of the prostate gland.”)
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can cause problems urinating, which may require the use of a permanent cathedra, surgery or both.
The most serious side effect of Dianabol Methandrostenolone is the increased stress it puts on the body’s hepatic system (liver.)
It is strongly advised to limit lengths of each cycle lengths to no more than 4 to 6 weeks, use liver supplements to help keep the liver healthy, and at all costs, avoid using high dosages.
Dianabol Methandrostenolone cycles are clear-cut. The use of Dianabol is normally used during the strength gaining and bulking periods.
During the times when the athlete or bodybuilder is not all that concerned with the side effects of bloating and water retention.
This type of cycle is usually done when the bodybuilder or athlete is in the off-season period and have usually cycled with an injection such as Deca Durabolinor Testosterone.
Dianabol cycles are usually kick-start cycles, while the bodybuilder or athlete is waiting to use the injection steroid (which takes longer to work.)
When the injection of the steroid kicks in and starts to work then the user returns to the oral form of the steroid for cycling at the 4 to 6 week intervals.
This allows the bodybuilder and athlete to gain the maximum goal or close to it that they desire.
As everyone in the steroid community knows, Dianabol Methandrostenolone is classified as an illegal substance in most countries including the US, Australia, Canada and the UK (unless prescribed by a doctor.)
Just like with any illegal substance, certain steps must be taken to obtain the Dianabol. In most cases, it is a matter of someone who knows someone…
In other situations a coach or trainer will have the connections to get the Dianabol and then give it to the user, which is usually a professional athlete or bodybuilder.
For those of you who are not a professional, you’ll have to discretely ask around, which can be a bit risky, so make sure you know the person you’re asking.
Dianabol is one of the most popular anabolic steroids. Therefore, complaints about its ability to work, are far and few between.
If in fact, someone who does complain about it, usually complain about a side effect, or the person is not taking it correctly.
Ask anyone who takes Dianabol Methandrostenolone – it works or it wouldn’t be one of the most sought after anabolic steroids and people would not be willing to pay top dollar, or risk going to jail for it!
