Anadrol is known to be one of the strongest oral anabolic steroids on the market. It constantly competes with Dianabol (Methandrostenolone), and there is an ongoing debate in the steroid bodybuilding community as to which drug is stronger.
Description and history of the substance.
Anadrol is both a brand name and a trade name for an anabolic steroid, better known as oxymetholone. But it should not be confused with Oxandrolone, also called Anavar. Oxymetholone is Anadrol. The Anadrol formula was first developed and introduced in 1959. Almost immediately Syntex began selling Oxymetholone under the brand name Anadrol-50. At the same time, Parke Davis & Co also produced the drug, but sold it under the name Anadroyd. Immediately after entering the pharmaceutical market, Anadrol began to be used to treat various diseases, ranging from geriatric atrophy to fighting infections. However, Anadrol has gained fame and popularity precisely as a drug for the treatment of anemia. Anemic patients were prescribed Anadrol to increase the number of red blood cells and increase the level of hemoglobin in the blood. With the development of drugs, less dangerous substances began to be used in therapy, and the release of Anadrol was significantly reduced.
Anadrol has the ability to rapidly stimulate erythropoiesis (hematopoiesis). Despite the fact that all anabolic steroids are endowed with similar properties, it is Anadrol that has superior indicators of hematopoiesis than other drugs. For a more precise characterization, it should be noted that Anadrol increases the production of red blood cells by 5 times. Studies have shown that Anadrol has a clear anabolic effect in patients with muscular dystrophy and diagnosed with AIDS. Patients taking Anadrol gained up to 8 kg in weight, while the placebo groups not only lost weight but also showed increased mortality. Thanks to the discovery of new properties of the drug, production was restarted and Anadrol is currently prescribed primarily to patients suffering from malnutrition caused by the immunodeficiency virus.
Anadrol Chemical Properties
Anadrol is an oral anabolic steroid. This means that the drug must pass through the liver before entering the bloodstream. The C17-alpha-alkyd group, which maintains the integrity and penetrating ability of the substance, does not help Anadrol to break down under the influence of metabolic processes. Severe liver toxicity is a well-known property of Anadrol. The chemical structure and modification of the substance (including the presence of a C17-alpha-alkyd group) make it exceptionally resistant to hepatic metabolism. Simply put, Anadrol is not broken down as it passes through the liver. However, the higher the resistance of a substance to destruction under the influence of biochemical processes, the greater the load it exerts on the body. This is an indication of the extreme toxicity of Anadrol, which is known to be one of the most harmful oral anabolic steroids ever available.
Being a potent C-17-alpha alkylated oral anabolic steroid, Anadrol exhibits high hepatotoxicity and adverse effects on the liver. In terms of toxic effects, the drug really turns out to be the most dangerous among all the anabolic steroids available for sale. This characterization of the drug is common among bodybuilders and is probably exaggerated, but this information should nevertheless be taken very seriously. Interestingly, Anadrol has a chemical structure that should actually reduce liver toxicity. In fact, when you use Anadrol, the level of liver enzymes increases. This has been shown in studies in patients diagnosed with HIV and AIDS. To avoid irreversible effects, it is strongly recommended to limit the intake of the drug for a period of 4-6 weeks and to use Anadrol with a large number of proven liver support agents.
