Stanozolol (Winstrol or Winny) is a synthetic anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) which was derived from dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is one of the best anabolic steroids, usually used as an ergogenic help.
Widely available as an anabolic steroid. It is available in both tablet and injectable formats, with the former being very popular among first time steroid users who prefer to opt for the needleless option.
Since, the lowering of SHBG increases free testosterone. These free testosterones are the active usable testosterone, and what isn't free is bound, primarily by SHBG. And if we lower SHBG our active testosterone increases. This same lowering of SHBG will also cause any other steroidal hormones being used to be more effective. Its depot may decrease SHBG in the individual by as much as 50%.
It carries with it numerous traits beyond reductions in SHBG. It is effective for increasing protein synthesis, increasing nitrogen retention and red blood cell count and reducing the body's glucocorticoid levels (stress hormones).
Commonly used as performance enhancing. It is not esterified and has a high oral bioavailability, due to a C17?-alkylation which allows it to survive the first pass liver metabolism when ingested.
