Oxymetholone is marketed by many pharmaceutical companies. One of them is the Balkans (Balkan Pharmaceuticals). This company is best known for its shifts and produces the drug in blister packs of 20 units per blister. Depending on the manufacturer, the tablets can be yellow, blue and white. In Russia, the legality of this tool is storage, no more than 10 m, in other cases (transportation, purchase, sale, etc.) is punishable by law.
Athletes and especially bodybuilders believe that Anadrol 50 is one of the most effective means of increasing muscle mass. The drug has an anabolic effect of 300%, although this steroid has an androgenic effect of 45%. This means that the body’s ability to synthesize muscle tissue increases threefold, with the possibility of side effects in the form of masculinization and virilization. To avoid this, the material must be used correctly and in moderation.
Principle of action of oxymetholone
Anadrol promotes muscle tissue growth by enhancing the anabolic processes in the body. Testosterone activates protein synthesis and fluid retention in the blood is observed, which leads to weight gain. A high fluid intake not only has a positive effect on tissue growth, but also on joint function. However, a person experiences such processes only while taking the drug, so when athletes stop taking these steroids, they lose up to 30% of their weight, often resorting to post-course therapy.
At the reception, experts recommend intensive training with a diet rich in calcium and protein and healthy sleep. Alcohol and psychotropic substances are currently strongly contraindicated.
Benefits of Anadrol (Oxymetholone)
In fact, oxymetholone has many side effects, but athletes are attracted to the relatively quick results of using this anabolic drug. Positive features of this tool:
- accelerated Weight Gain – not to be confused with lean muscle mass, in this case total weight gain is increased, most of which is water
- increase in performance figures
- energy boost
- relieves joint pain during exercise
Every bodybuilder knows that Anadrol can pack on muscle mass in a few weeks compared to months of grueling workouts at the gym. This is the quality of the drug that attracts the most.
Post cycle therapy
Letrozole is an estrogen blocker that stimulates the body to produce testosterone.
Cortisol is a steroid hormone that regulates carbohydrate metabolism.
The duration of treatment after the cycle depends not only on the duration of steroid treatment, but also on the dose used. As a rule, the presence and severity of side effects depend on the latter. The most important thing is to preserve the muscle mass, as the withdrawal after taking oxymetholone is not small – about 30% of the mass. Post cycle treatment should include:
Normalizing the liver is one of the main tasks after taking Anadrol. It is important to normalize the level of bilirubin (cortisol) in your blood.
To restore testicular function, you must first wait for the synthetic testosterone to disappear from your body and then increase your natural (letrozole) levels.
Normalization of cholesterol – diet planning with an emphasis on oily fish. It is advisable to supplement the diet with a vitamin complex, including the use of omega-3 fatty acids.
Reducing the intensity of exercise reduces the level of cortisol in the body.
Post-cycle treatment necessarily involves the use of multiple medications.
There is no need to use a powerful next-generation anti-estrogen such as Clomid or Toremifen.
In such a situation, the use of tamoxifen is not recommended because it acts on prolactin and may lead to further hormonal imbalance in the athlete.
