In the recent times, you must have heard about one of the most widely used and potent dietary supplementation products called Winstrol. It was first developed by the Winthrop Laboratories in the early 1950s. Later it came to be known as Stanozolol which is the generic name for the product. You can even find it under several other brand names including Winstrol Depot, Stanozolol Depot and Winny. But what happens when such a popular dietary medication comes in the headlines on different channels for being legally banned in so many countries? Is it because of the wide range of side effects it possibly causes or is the reason something else? A lot of famous body builders and athletes use Winstrol for weight loss purposes and also enhancing the lean structure of their muscle mass. When a product as potential as causing both anabolic as well as fat burning impacts gets banned in countries for its abuse or misuse, it is a great loss for the manufacturing pharmaceutical companies across the world.
How popular is Winstrol worldwide?
Initially Winstrol was created with the idea of curing osteoporosis in adults, which is a characteristic feature of the body due to deficiency of vitamin D or calcium. Osteoporosis is a very serious biological disorder that causes porous bones which means the density of bones gets reduced, increasing the chances of causing broken bones. But this was considered as a medical treatment and not for recreational purposes. In order to use the product under law for anabolic purposes, you will need to find a legal alternative to Stanozolol and administer the dosage cycles accordingly. More than the initial cause for its creation, Winstrol gained a lot of popularity with its application in muscle building and shredding excess calories from your body cells.
Winstrol has been prepared with an advanced blend of Stanozolol, where it has been structurally and functionally altered to promote higher anabolic effects on human body and lower androgenic impacts. It is a modified form of dihydrotestosterone, an active derivative of the male sex hormone called testosterone. If you calculate the ratio of the anabolic property to the androgen city of the medication, you will know that the androgenic rating is as low as 20 while the anabolic rating is as soaring as 320.
What are the side effects of using Stanozolol?
There are a lot of adverse effects that you can expect out of Stanozolol apart from its positive effects. Even the legal alternative to Stanozolol can have potential health hazards including:
- Extremely high levels of blood pressure.
- Adverse androgenic effects due to hormonal imbalance causing male pattern baldness, erectile dysfunction, virilisation, acne overgrowth and body hair. But these effects are more prominent in Stanozolol than it legal alternative.
- Suppression of good cholesterol (HDL- high density lipoprotein) and promotion of bad cholesterol (LDL- low density lipoprotein).
- There can be possible hepato-toxic characteristics due to extra stress on the liver cells at the time of detoxification.
