Stano by Titan Healthcare
Quality muscle mass, fat reduction and muscle hardness have made the anabolic steroid Stanozolol so popular. Mainly used in a hard diet, it helps its users to good strength and muscle hardness.
The anabolic steroid Stanozolol, best known as Winstrol, was officially patented in 1962 by a reputable pharmaceutical manufacturer. Stano is actually a derivative of dihydrotestosterone. Stano has been extended at the molecular level compared to other steroids, resulting in a fifth carbon ring. Most other anabolic steroids have only four of these rings. In addition, the oral form of Stano was 17-alpha-alkylated to make the active ingredient stanozolol orally more available.
The mode of action of Stano:
Although Winstrol is a dihydrotestosterone derivative, stanozolol has little androgenic activity, on average 30% less than the other known anabolic steroids. Despite its strong anabolic effects, Winstrol is not a steroid known for building large amounts of muscle mass. However, Stanozolol is known to build up moderate amounts of quality muscle, which remains largely after weaning.
The main application of Winstrol is dieting and competition preparation. Stanozolol is known to contribute to an extremely hard and dry appearance, but in practice this is only the case when the body fat percentage is already well below the 10% mark.
As a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, Winstrol can not be converted into estrogen in the body and also has no progesterone effect, so that the users of stanozolol need not worry about estrogen-related side effects such as water retention or gynecomastia.
The dosage of Stano and common stacks:
During competition preparation, Winstrol is often combined with non-aromatizing androgenic steroids such as Halotestin or Trenbolone. The combination of stanozolol with testosterone propionate or drostanolone propionate also proves excellent during this phase.
Winstrol is one of the few steroids that is also used by women because of its low androgenic effect. The dosage used by women in practice is usually in the range of 5 to 10 milligrams per day. The oral dosage form of Winstrol is hereby usually preferred, since it is easier for tablets with an active ingredient content of 2 to 5 mg stanozolol to dose as low as in injection solutions with an active ingredient content, which is usually 50 mg stanozolol per milliliter. Men usually use oral Winstrol in the range of 15 to 30 mg per day, but the dosage is usually divided into two because of the half-life of Stano, which is around 9 hours.
The side effects of Winstrol:
However, the lack of estrogen-related side effects should not mislead Winstrol with the fact that the active substance stanozolol is by no means harmless and has little side effects. In addition to the liver toxicity of Winstrol, which is associated with all 17-alpha-alkylated anabolic androgenic steroids, the active substance stanozolol has a devastating effect on cholesterol levels. Already 6 mg Winstrol per day can reduce the HDL cholesterol level, ie the good cholesterol, by more than 30% and in turn increase the LDL cholesterol level, ie the bad cholesterol, by about 30%. At higher doses, HDL cholesterol levels can drop to almost no measurable levels.
Although the effects of orally administered Stano and injected Stanozolol are very similar, which is not surprising given that it is the exact same active ingredient, including 17-alpha alkylation, orally administered Winstrol has an interesting property that is associated with the injection of Stanozolol not or only to a much lesser extent occurs: orally taken Winstrol lowers the level of SHBG in the body. Since SHGB binds free testosterone, which is then no longer active, oral administration of Winstrol in conjunction with injected testosterone could result in more testosterone being in free and thus active form.
