Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone has the same base structure than Dianabol, but with an added modified chain of clostebol.
This alteration tempers its androgenic activity and cancels its estrogenic pattern. The anabolic capability of chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is however milder than Dianabol’s. Turinabol is thus mostly aimed to increase strength and muscle quality than pure mass.
As previously mentioned, being not aromatized by the body Turinabol is not estrogenic. An anti-estrogen is thus not necessary when using this steroid.
An anti-estrogen is moreover not necessary and, without any estrogenic activity there is no water retention to fear, leading to a lean muscle aspect. This makes of Turinabol a good candidate for cutting cycles.
Even if low, androgenic side effects are still possible however with Turinabol. These can mostly be body/facial hair growth … and hair loss. Of course, the higher the dose, the more androgenic effects. However side effects are not a concern in normal doses.
Women usually want to keep away from virilizing effects of androgenic steroids. These indeed can lead to a deepening of the voice and clitoral enlargement.
Turinabol low androgenicity is not greatly altered by finasteride or dutasteride
Being an oral steroid, Turinabol is c17-alpha alkylated. This protects it from a quick deactivation by the liver, but makes it somehow hepatotoxic. It is hence well advised not to prolonge the intake over 8 weeks, in an effort to preserve the liver health. The use of a liver detoxification supplement such as Stabil, Liv-52, or Essentiale Forte is also wise.
Because of the bad effects of AAS on good and bad cholesterol balance in the body, as well as blood pressure and triglycerides, a good diet should be kept along with the intake. Supplementing with omega-3 and Lipid Stabil is recommended.
All steroids have a negative feedback on natural Testosterone production. This is how the body adapts to an exogenous increase of its normal levels. With no help of stimulating substances, testosterone levels will return to normal within several months after discontinuance.
Common doses of Turinabol are between 15 to 40 mg daily.
Women will rather take a single 5 mg tablet per day; virilizing effects are unlikely at this dose. Bioavailibilty of steroids is less when taken with food, due to their lipidic nature.
