Stanozolol, better known as Winstrol is a very popular DHT derived anabolic steroid. Perfecting for cutting cycles by the way it improves conditioning, and
perfect for athletic performance by the manner in-which it increases strength, millions supplement with this powerful hormone. Generally a well-tolerated
hormone, Stanozolol is one of the few anabolic steroids that can be used by both men and women. However, there are Winstrol side-effects
that we must be aware of if we are to remain safe throughout use. Like all side-effects, Winstrol side-effects are not set in stone. Some
of the effects are largely genetically based, and another, while genetically based remains largely dose dependent. Of course, there are two adverse
reactions that will occur in all, but thankfully with responsible use we can stave off any damage.
Possible Winstrol Side-Effects
There are three Winstrol side-effects while very possible they are by no means guaranteed. First and foremost, Stanozolol can dramatically
raise your LDL cholesterol levels. Total dosing will play a part, as well as your genetic predisposition to high cholesterol, but for the healthy adult it
can be controlled. If you already suffer from high cholesterol you should not touch this hormone, and for that matter should probably stay away from all
anabolic steroids. To protect your cholesterol levels you must supplement with reasonable doses. Most men will never need to go above 50mg every day, and
most women will never need to go above 20mg per day. However, most women will be best served at keeping doses in the 10mg per day to even 10mg every other
Two other Winstrol side-effects that may occur include hair-loss and acne. In both cases, these two side-effects are largely genetically
dependent. Those who lose any hair due to Stanozolol use were going to lose their hair to begin with; the supplementation of Stanozolol simply sped the
process up. If you are not predisposed to male-pattern baldness you shouldn’t lose the first hair on your head. The same can largely be said of acne. Those
predisposed or who are sensitive to acne will find they are the first two have a problem. If this is an issue for you, and one you cannot control, you are
advised to stay away from this hormone. However, unlike hair-loss there is a reasonable line of defense. Keeping your skin extra clean is paramount, as is
ensuring you change your shirt any time it becomes sweaty, as breakouts most commonly occur on the back and shoulders. Further, and this is very important,
ensuring your product is of a high quality nature and contaminant free will do wonders for you.
Liver Winstrol Side-Effects
The Stanozolol hormone belongs to the C17-Alpha Alkylated (C17-aa) family of anabolic steroids. What this means is the hormone has been structurally
altered at the 17th carbon position in-order for it to survive the first pass through the liver. Without this structural change the hormone
would be destroyed before it became useful; however, it also makes the hormone toxic to the liver. Regardless of the form of Winstrol you choose, oral or
injectable, both forms are of a C17-aa nature. In any case, when we supplement with this steroid our liver enzyme values will increase, and they can
increase quite dramatically. If you are a heavy drinker you will not want to touch this steroid; in-fact, it’s not a bad idea to lay off all alcohol when
Winstrol is used. Further, although Stanozolol is not as toxic as many over the counter medications, because you’ll be taking it
every day you are best served by avoiding as many over the counter medications as you can.
While the liver toxicity is necessary due to the hormones needed nature, although this is unfortunate there is good news. Once use is discontinued,
assuming you have been responsible your liver enzyme levels will return to normal. The liver is truly one of the most remarkable organs in the body and has
amazing rejuvenating capabilities. However, if you are irresponsible with use you may indeed do some serious damage. Of course, if you’re irresponsible you
may find you have problems with some of the other Winstrol side-effects as well, especially regarding cholesterol as discussed above.
Testosterone Winstrol Side-Effects
There are two Winstrol side-effects that are testosterone related and for the most part interconnected. When we supplement with the
Stanozolol hormone our natural testosterone production is suppressed. For this reason, most men who supplement with Winstrol will also supplement with some
form of exogenous testosterone. The form does not matter as long as you’re giving your body the testosterone it needs.
Of course, we said there were two testosterone related Winstrol side-effects, the first being testosterone suppression and the second
being testicular atrophy. As testosterone is manufactured in the testicles, when production is suppressed the testicles simply atrophy. They do not shrink
and disappear; in-fact, in some cases the difference may not be all that noticeable. When we’re speaking of testicular atrophy we’re simply referring to
the testicles losing some of their fullness. Once the use of all anabolic steroids has been discontinued and all the hormones are out of your system
natural testosterone production will begin again, and your testicles will return to their normal size.
