Turinabol (Oral) (chem. 4-chlorohydromethylstosterone) – anabolic steroid which is similar in effects and chemical structure to methandrostenolone. The word “oral” in the title means that this anabolic remedy is taken orally (by mouth). Unlike methandrostenolone is Turinabol that contains an additional chlorine atom at the fourth carbon atom. The drug was first developed by the German pharmaceutical company Jenapharm and patented in 1961.
Anabolic activity – 180 %
Androgenic activity – 50 %
Aromatization (conversion into estrogen) – absent
The suppression of the axis hypothalamus-pituitary-testes – moderately high
Toxicity to the liver – moderate
Method of reception – inside (tablets)
The half-life is 16 hours
Detection time – up to 250 days (long-lived fat-soluble metabolites)
Maximum plasma concentration 3 hours after ingestion
The drug can be described as Methandrostenolone is without effect of fluid retention in the body.
This delayed acting steroid. During the course turinabol weight, power output and relief progress very slowly, but from the words of athletes these results are better.
Another distinctive feature of the drug – the lack of estrogenic effects (because not exposed to aromatization, due to the addition of the chlorine atom in the molecule), that is, side effects such as fluid accumulation, gynecomastia, etc. almost never occur. Although there are reviews, which reported on the development of gynecomastia, the mechanism of its development remains unclear. The most likely reason is the presence in the composition methylstosterone that is connected with the peculiarities of the synthesis.
Also, it was determined that reduced the concentration of SHBG , therefore increasing the level of free testosterone in the blood.There is evidence that Turinabol reduces the risk of blood clots in the blood vessels and heart.
The results of the tests at the end of the course of oral-turinabol (in the last column above norm)
During the preparation for the Olympic games was the optimum dose of the drug that caused the least side effects is 20-40 mg per day, in three divided doses, but bodybuilders are often neglected by these figures,bringing the dosage up to 100-150 mg a day.
The drug can be used as in muscle mass and drying. The course turinabol does not require the inclusion gonadotropin (if not more than 6-8 weeks), however, PCT is held by the estrogen receptor blockers (Tamoxifen). Monomers turinabol is considered to be one of the most simple and safe in bodybuilding, so often recommended to beginners. For the first course optimal dosage is 40 mg/day for 6 weeks. This allows to obtain impressive results, both in terms of growth of quality muscle mass and progress the speed and power of the results.
For a set of muscle mass is better suited combined course Turinabol (20 mg) + testosterone enanthate 250 mg per week (or sustanon). The average duration of 6 weeks. First canceled enanthate, Turinabol.
Athletes who are not interested in mass and try to increase speed and endurance (boxers, wrestlers, runners, etc.) recommended a lower dose – 10-20 mg per day.. Note, however, that in recent years turinabol has become problematic in terms of anti-doping steroid, as recently discovered (2012) long-lived metabolites are determined for six to eight months. A great contribution to this incredibly long period of discovery introduced the latest developments in the field of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.
It should also be noted that on the black market is a lot of fakes (sometimes with another active principle), whereby the obtained results do not always justify the expectations.
