Dianabol, also known as Methandrostenolone, it is an anabolic-androgenic steroid that has no medical use anymore. Initially, it was developed to treat hypogonadism, post-menopausal osteoporosis and pituitary deficient dwarfism. However, it ended up in the hands of bodybuilders and athletes for muscle building and performance enhancement.
Dianabol was popular amongst the athletes back in 80’s during the golden age of bodybuilding, and everyone was taking it. But now better and safe versions of these synthetic variants of testosterone have been developed. However, they still use dianabol in combination with other anabolic steroids to boost the anabolic activity in the body and gain maximum results in less time.
Post cycle therapy is mandatory after going through a cycle of dianabol otherwise side effects may leave your health compromised.
While the drug may not have much to offer, it is best taken as an amplifier for other anabolic steroids in combination as it helps them display maximum impact on the gains and it also contributes in the overall physique of the athlete. Those additional benefits are:
- encourages muscles to grow
- fat burn
- increased stamina and energy
- quick results
- overall performance
For beginners, the lowest standard dosage is 15mg daily but the professional, experienced users of dianabol tend to increase their dosage by 5 to 10mg with each cycle.
A maximum of 50mg dosage can be taken but more than that can lead towards a series of severe side effects. The half-life of dianabol is upto six hours therefore, many users take their daily dosage in two separate servings in order to maintain its results.
