Winstrol is another anabolic steroid, but is not necessarily considered a banned substance because it is used to treat certain medical conditions. Since anabolic steroids have been associated with scandals in the dope-testing incidents of steroids in sports, they have been given a bad rap; in fact they help reconstruct tissues that have become weak because of serious injury or illness.
An effective Winstrol treatment must be made with a diet high in proteins and calories, if benefits are to be realized.
Winstrol and BodyBuilders
As for Winstrol being a body builder’s best friend, it is known in gym circles as a cutting agent (There are about 7 cutting steroids and Winstrol happens to be one of them).
Only the oral form of Winstrol is available in the US, the injectable form can only be obtained from the underground or buying steroids online, and it usually comes from Mexico or Spain.
Again, as with most anabolic steroids, liver damage may occur.
Winstrol – also known as stanozolol – is manufactured by British Dragon and costs about 45 Euros for 20 tablets at 10 mg each.
Many compounding pharmacies in the US sell high quality stanolzolol (Winstrol being its generic name). One compounding pharmacy in Omaha, Nebraska sells them for 100 (2 mg) capsules $ 90.00 and 300 (2 mg) capsules $250.00. A visit into one message board revealed that one user found winstrol way too expensive. Not much is known about which form – tablet or injectable – is more effective.
Winstrol is Low in Androgens
The one thing good about winstrol is that unlike some anabolic steroids, it is relatively low in androgens. Given that it is a cutting steroid, it is very popular amongst “cut cycle” bodybuilders, and is stacked with Primobolan, Testosterone Propionate and Masteron.
For bulk cycles, winstrol is stacked with either Testosterone, Deca Durabolin or Dianabol. Before injecting stanozolol (winstrol), it has to be dissolved in water. The marketers claim that it does not cause health problems, and that the gains are solid and maintained even after usage is stopped. Professional athletes in track and field, boxing, martial arts use winstrol, and famous Canadian sprinter and former 100m world record holder Ben Johnson was known to be a user of winstrol.
One winstrol user said: “I took one steroid cycle of this, with side effects being increases in strength, fat loss all over body. Muscle increase was not significant but increase in strength levels was. Another side effect was slight increase in acne on the back area but not too much.”
More information about other side effects is available from your local pharmacist.
