Winstrol, more commonly known as stanozolol is a highly acclaimed steroids that has been gaining popularity since many years. This steroid is mild in nature thus is a favorite of women users and for those men who do not want to get any side effects. This steroids is basically classified as an Anabolic steroid that has a higher tendency for increase in muscle mass than androgenic activities. Although the steroid is mild but it still produces strong and effective results, particularly in muscle building. Unlike the steroid Dianabol, Winstrol does not carry the same level of water retention but does contain the same c17 methyl that is present in Dianabol.
As a C17-aa anabolic steroid, Winstrol is hepatotoxic and will present stress to the liver. A common misconception many make is assuming only the oral version of this steroid is hepatotoxic. Winstrol can be found as an oral tablet or as an injectable solution but both forms are C17-aa and both stressful to the liver. In fact, injectable Winstrol is one of the only C17-aa injectable steroids. Many also inaccurately assume this is one of the most hepatotoxic anabolic steroids on the market; again this is false. Stanozolol will carry a greater hepatotoxicity than steroids like Anavar (Oxandrolone) but on a per milligram basis less hepatotoxic than steroids like Dianabol (Methandrostenolone).
There are also some who complain of joint pain when using Winstrol. As a steroid that does not aromatize there will be no water retention but the “dry feeling” may not be what many think it is. Most who use the steroid will be physique athletes or gym rats during a cutting phase. They will also typically add it into a plan late in the diet once they’re already lean. Typically, when you become very lean, bodybuilding lean, this makes the joints a little uncomfortable. With or without Winstrol this discomfort could potentially exist. As for pro athletes who have nearly every last steroid at their disposal, remember, if Winstrol weren’t effective in competitive sports so many athletes wouldn’t make it a primary and favorite choice. In fact, the combo of Winstrol with low doses of Nandrolone is a very common stack among many athletes, and this stack will greatly eliminate any potential joint discomfort should it exist.
