Role of METHANDIENONE in the Body
is an oral steroid, which is commonly known by the name of Anabol or Danabol. It is structurally unstable with the ability to aromatize and hence become functionally useless. It is famous for its very powerful anabolic and androgenic effects in the body. It is preferred over many other commercially available steroids due to the ease of administration. It is taken orally while other steroids have to be injected intramuscularly and so daily visits to a doctor are required in the latter case.
Anabolic effects of methandienone
are on protein metabolism where it prevents loss of proteins from the body and aids their accumulation. This action ensures adequate protein deposition in the muscles, increases lean body mass of the person, and enhances muscle power. It also allows sufficient amount of glycogen to be stored in the body.
Androgenic effects are beneficial for men where they too add to the muscle strength and reserve. Such effects however not favored by women because of issues like facial hair, enlargement of clitoris, deepening of voice, etc.
In addition to the beneficial effects, methandienone has several adverse effects that have decreased its popularity sufficiently in the past decade.
Among the most notable ones is the fluid retention. Fluid retention leads to swelling of the body (edema) which is particularly prominent in the facial region. Moreover,
has an alkyl group attached to the alpha carbon that adds to its hepatotoxicity. With prolonged intake of methandienone, liver function is abnormally altered and liver function tests may be tremendously deranged.
Methandienone Stacking :
- is highly recommended for the first time user and stacks well with almost any other steroid.
For mass with moderately effective anabolics
It is noted to mix particularly well with the mild anabolic Deca-Durabolin, or Boldenone Undecylenate. Together one can expect exceptional muscle and strength gains, with side effects not much worse than one would expect from Dianabol alone.
For sheer mass,
a long-acting testosterone ester like enanthate or cypionate can be used. With the high estrogenic/androgenic properties of this androgen, however, side effects should be more pronounced. Gains would be pronounced as well, which usually makes such an endeavor worthwhile to the user. As discussed earlier, ancillary drugs can be added to reduce the side effects associated with this kind of cycle.
Methandienone Dosage (Man):
For physique-or performance-enhancing purposes, usual dosing for men is 25-50 mg daily divided in four or five dose. This dosing is optimal although high rang bodybuilders take around 250 mg daily.
Cycles are usually lasting between 6 and 8 weeks in length followed by 6-8 weeks off. The half-life of
is about 3-5 hours.
Methandienone Dosage (women):
When used by women it is very effective with dosage 5-10 mg.
When used by women, strong virilization symptoms are possible. Some do experiment with it, however, and often find low doses (2.5-5 mg) of this steroid quite effective for new muscle growth.
Studies have demonstrated that a majority of women will notice acne, which is indicative of androgenicity, at a dosage of only 10 mg per day. Children are likely to notice virilizing effects with as little as 2.5 mg per day.
Methandienone Side effects:
is aromatized by the body, and is a moderately estrogenic steroid. To avoid gynecomastia if you are sensitive, antiestrogen like Clomifene Citrate and/or Proviron or Tamoxifene should be added to the cycle to keep the estrogen under control . You can choose even better solution like aromatase inhibitor Arimidex (anastrozole), which is a more effective for estrogen control but it is also much more expensive.
Side effect can be acne, aggression and hypertension. The drug is 17-alkylated what protects it from being deactivation by the liver so it is toxic to this organ. Some products like a Cod Liver Oil or Primrose Oil or other, which contains linolenic acid, support a liver.
Anabolics Online recomends stocking with Deca Durabolin ( at least 400mg/week) and/or Sustanone . For brutal mass gain we recommend combination : Methandienone +Deca-Durabolin+Testosteron Depo Galenika . You will be amazed with results.
Methandienone Intake :
For maximum utilization,
should be taken on an empty stomach.Taking an oral anabolic steroid with food may decrease its bioavailability caused by the fat-soluble nature of steroid hormones, allowing some of the drug to dissolve with undigested dietary fat, reducing its absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.
Becouse half-life of
is only about 3 to 5 hours usual recommendation has been to divide tablets of
and try to regulate the concentration in your blood. This, however, will produce a lower peak blood level than if the tablets were taken all at once, so there may be a trade-off with this option. Studies have shown that both options work fine . You can either split up the tablets during the day or to take them all at one time.
