Oxandrolone is most certainly a hepatotoxic steroid. It does not carry the strongest level of hepatotoxicity among anabolic steroids, but it is stronger than most. This is due to it being a C17-aa anabolic steroid. All C17-aa steroids are hepatic, but the level of toxicity varies greatly between them. Due to this steroid’s strong hepatotoxicity, this is why total use must be limited (see administration section).
Due to use, those who supplement with Anadrol will find their liver enzyme values increase. An increase in values is not a sign of damage but rather a sign of stress that can lead to damage if responsible practices are not followed and the stress is allowed to remain. Proper dosing and duration of use protocols are imperative when it comes to this steroid. Further, it is important the individual avoids excess alcohol consumption when supplementing with this steroid due to the liver stress such consumption will cause. In fact, most will find avoiding all alcohol to be best during use. If this is a problem and you are supplementing for the purpose of performance enhancement remember there is nothing on earth that is as anti-performance as alcohol. Those who supplement are also encouraged to limit their use of Over the Counter (OTC) medications. Many OTC medications carry strong hepatic natures, and the added stress can be extensive when coupled with Anadrol. Use should be limited to when only absolutely needed. If these rules can be followed, once use is discontinued liver enzyme values will return to normal and no damage will be done. As a final note, Anadrol should not be used if the liver is unhealthy.
For the athlete looking for an edge a dosing of 20mg per day will generally prove to be the minimal with 40mg per day being far more optimal. While 40mg per day will provide a nice boost in-terms of overall athletic performance if you’re really looking to transform your physique you will probably need a far greater dose. As this steroid will not provide massive amounts of lean tissue most bodybuilders will not mess with it and if they do they will necessarily take massive amounts making it a poor choice for off-season periods of growth. The dieting bodybuilder however might find a more suitable use for the steroid but again there are more efficient choices for this individual. In either case, as it is an anabolic steroid that is hepatic total use should not extend past the 8 week mark but many will find 6 weeks to be just about perfect.
For the female Turinabol user 5mg per day would be the starting point with 10mg per day being the absolute max . Most females will need to start at 5mg per day to see how they react but understand if you approach the 10mg mark you will increase the probability of virilization. While 5mg per day may not sound like much it is important to remember on a per milligram basis Turinabol appears to be much stronger in women than it is in men meaning lower doses will have a far reaching and pronounced affect.
They are the two most common and popular oral steroids of all time and for the purpose of bulking there are few that can come close to the power of Dianabol and Anadrol . Both of these very powerful steroids are often discussed together and in many circles you will find fans of both and often fans of Anadrol will swear up and down it is the more powerful of the two; however, this is simply not true. On a milligram for milligram basis Dianabol is far stronger than Anadrol; in-fact, its not that close; yes, both are very powerful but Dianabol takes first prize handedly. This common misconception regarding the two steroids exists for one very simple reason and that is common dosing protocol. Most all cycles that include Anadrol will start at 50mg per day with 100mg per day being very common place, while conversely most Dianabol cycles will start at 20-30mg per day and while they often go up to 50mg in more hardcore circles, for the average gym rat it is rare. You rarely hear of anyone supplementing with 100mg of Dbol per day outside of elite level bodybuilding but if an individual were to take both steroids, one during the first cycle and the other in a second cycle and at equal doses in both, assuming both forms were of pure quality and all other variables remained the same the gains made from Dianabol would shadow Anadrol into the ground. In the end, while Dbol is more powerful you must find what works best for you, find which you tolerate to a higher degree, regardless of power your personal toleration is of the utmost importance.
