Winstrol is an anabolic steroid also known as Stanozolol that is developed from dihydrotestosterone. It was initially only available in the oral form but later, the injectable form, Winstrol depot, was developed. It is given as an intramuscular injection, available in 50 milligrams. Since it is not an esterified compound, it does not dissolve in oil and is water soluble instead.
Winstrol depot is usually used by body builders, athletes and anyone looking to gain muscles fast. It has a more anabolic than androgenic action. Through the anabolic action, it is able to increase the rate of protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. This leads to increased muscular hypertrophy and strength with reduction in recovery time following exercises.
Other anabolic actions include the reduction of glucocorticoid hormones which are catabolic. This means that there is no destructive metabolism to oppose the anabolic effect. In addition, Winstrol increases the erythropoietin hormone production in the kidneys. As erythropoietin is responsible for red cell production, there is an increased amount produced. In the long run, there is improved oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. This is a much needed effect for recovery of muscles especially after strenuous exercises.
It is mostly used during the cutting season when there is need for loss of adipose tissue while maintaining lean tissue. It can be stacked with Dianabol or Anadrol for greater results. It does not have the water retention associated with other anabolic steroids and therefore no increase in blood pressure.
Despite having one of the best side effects profile, has been shown to have cases of liver toxicity. Liver toxicity is usually marked by yellowing of the sclera, palms and for lighter people the skin, light colored stools and dark urine. This is unlike other injectable formulations. It causes gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Other side effects include acne and hastening of the rate of hair loss. The hair loss is however minimal compared to other anabolic steroids.
