Winstrol Side Effects:
Stanozolol has been modified to ensure it passes through the liver without it getting destroyed in any fashion, making it a 17AA substance. It is also orally active but at the same time toxic to the liver. People taking it have to be aware of this fact and should not indiscriminately take this just because it is available in pills form.
The side effects also manifest in the form of higher LDL or the bad cholesterol levels and lower HDL or the good cholesterol. If usage is not restricted to the 6 weeks prescribed, there can be issues though some people have even run it for 3 months without problems.
People have reported a feeling of dryness and less lubrication within their body joints. Experts put it down to the “reverse osmosis” effect. Some have reported lack of tendon strength due to this loss of lubrication. A couple of medical reports have even said the opposite and that it actually strengthens tendons though in a fashion that may not be considered appropriate. This is one of the reasons they do not recommend athletes who participate in sports that are high-impact to keep away from winstrol steroid.
Since the drug passes through the liver, considered to be the “engine” of the body, there is bound to be some stress on this organ as well, though not by much. Women are able to tolerate the drug more effectively due to its anabolic nature as opposed to androgenic seen in other steroids. But the key is to remain within limits and not inject more than recommended.
Winstrol and test cycle reports indicate it is very effective even in the off-season period. This is the period when athletes do not take part in their chosen activities and prefer to bulk up. The fact that it lowers the SHBG levels so nicely makes this drug a preferred one as the athletes are able to consolidate the gains they made during the season and do not lose out on any of the benefits just because they are no longer active. Combining stanozolol with other drugs is the key for optimizing benefits from winstrol steroid.
