Dianabol – The Better Option Than Testosterone?

What Is Dianabol?

Originally developed in Germany, Dianabol (also known as Methandrostenolone, Danabol, D-bolic, Dbol, and Averbol) is an orally-effective anabolic steroid. Categorized as a Schedule III drug under the U.S. Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 1990, this steroid is available in different forms like pills, creams, gels, injections, and capsules and may be purchased online, with or without a medical prescription.

Methandrostenolone has an anabolic-androgenic ratio of 90-210:40-60 and has the molecular weight of 300.44 g/mol at the base. Its chemical name is [17a-methyl-17b-hydroxy-1,4-androstadien-3-one] and its molecular formula is C20H28O2. Danabol can be detected in a urine sample usually via gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and primary urinary metabolites of this anabolic androgenic steroid can be detected for up to 4 days, and hydroxymethyl metabolite can be found in urine for up to 19 days after a single 5mg oral dose.

Why Is Danabol Used?

Medically, Methandrostenolone is prescribed to individuals suffering with health complications like interstitial-pituitary insufficiency, diabetic angiopathies (retinopathy and nephropathy), steroidal diabetes, chronic adrenocortical insufficiency, thyrotoxicosis, and pituitary dwarfism.

Dbol is commonly used by athletes and bodybuilders as it stimulates dramatic improvements in glycogenolysis, muscle strength, and protein synthesis over a short period of time. Since this steroid can easily pass through the liver with only a small portion of it broken down due to 17α-methylation of Dbol, it can even be used by those who are prone to liver toxicity. Dbol is also considered a better option than Testosterone, gram for gram, as Dbol reduces affinity of the steroid for sex hormone binding globulin that is a protein deactivating steroid molecules and inhibiting them from further reactions in the body.

This anabolic androgenic steroid is even admired for its potential of promoting calcium deposits in the bones, enhancing muscle density, and increasing strength. Use of this steroid can also be associated with dramatic and nearly-permanent gains in terms of potassium, muscle mass, and endurance capacity. Methandrostenolone is equally effective to increase repetitions during intense workouts and reduces workout fatigue to a great extent. In addition to these advantages, Dbol is one of the very few steroids that can promote the sense of well being while promoting muscle mass, function, and size gains and improving sleep patterns.

Two of the greatest bodybuilders who admitted to using Methandrostenolone included Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sergio Oliva.


Recommended Dose

For men, the recommended dose of Methandrostenolone is 25-50mg every day and women may use Dbol in daily dosages of 10-20mg. This anabolic steroid is usually stacked with Primobolan, Deca Durabolin or Trenbolone Acetate or with Testosterone and Deca Durabolin. Post cycle therapy with Clomid and Nolvadex after a Dbol cycle is highly recommended to prevent excess estrogen formation and restore the production of natural testosterone in the body in case it has been reduced due to the use of harsh and aromatizable steroids in the cycle.

This anabolic steroid is also not advised to those diagnosed with health conditions such as hypertension, high blood pressure, and prostate or breast cancer or those treated for health conditions such as testicular atrophy, testicular cancer, liver damage, kidney damage, stroke, or respiratory problems.

Methandrostenolone, like every potent prescription drug, should always be used only after the recommendation of a medical practitioner. Before seeking medical approval, it is important for potential users of this drug to disclose their complete medical history and use of prescription and non-prescription drugs, including herbal products, so that the incident of side effects can be eliminated in the first place itself. When abused or overdosed, Dbol may led to increased aggression, fever, or pain in the lower back (particularly in the kidney areas), male pattern baldness, clitoral hypertrophy, oily skin bouts, and insomnia or difficulty when urinating, edema (swelling), and high blood pressure.
