Stanozolol is an anabolic steroid derived from dihydrotestosterone (DHT) available in oral and injectable form. Stanozolol is a universal anabolic steroid which is also suitable for the bulking phase and the definition phase. Nevertheless, most bodybuilders and athletes tend to use the injectable stanozolol in the definition period, which calls for an increase of hard muscle mass without excessive water retention, which usually brings with it a soft appearance of muscle. Stanozolol also accelerates fat burning. Just for the above properties it is particularly popular in the bodybuilding community for its use in pre-competition training.
Because the injectable version of stanozolol does not pass more than once through the liver, in contrast to the oral versions, it can be used for a long time. It should be noted, however, that structurally, injection oral stanozolol are identical substances.The injection version is same as C17 -alpha-alkyllated, therefore it still exhibits some degree of liver toxicity. Although an injection stanozolol is less hepatotoxic than the oral version, it should not be used longer than 6-8 weeks.
Another feature of stanozolol as a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, lies in the ability to reduce SHBG levels (binding globulin to sex hormones).The reduction in SHBG levels results in the release of more free testosterone, which can be used to increase strength, libido and lean body mass. It also leads to a reduction in estrogen levels, thereby limiting side effects. Thus, the excessive water intake will not be a problem during the use of stanozolol, and when taken together with anabolic steroids that cause water retention, it actively helps to reduce this side effect. Due to its high anabolic and low androgenic nature it is preferred by women. Oral Stanozolol is commonly used in the definition stage, or during the caloric deficit, if the goal of the user is to lose body fat.Stanozolol helps to reduce the amount of fat tissue and increase lipolysis and oxidation of fat and, more importantly, helps maintain muscle mass during this time. The calorie deficit can cause the body to go into a state which uses amino acids (muscle) as an energy source, which is unwelcome state if this occurs during the phase of preparation for competition. Preservation of muscle tissue occurs due to the properties of stanozolol in increasing nitrogen retention and protein synthesis in muscle. Preservation of muscle tissue occurs due to the properties of stanozolol in increasing nitrogen retention and protein synthesis in muscle.
For beginners, fully sufficient dose is 50 mg every other day. Intermediate and advanced users use 100mg every other day. Regardless of the amount of experience the user is advised while injecting stanozolol to use some form of testosterone. According to recent studies, the detection of Stanozolol is about 120 days.
