Description of Turanabol (Turinabol)
Though it was developed in the early 1960`s Turanabol still remains popular due to its predominantly anabolic and relatively low androgenic effect.
If we put its effects on a scale from 1 to 100 the androgenic effect will be 6- and the anabolic one is about 53. Meanwhile, the androgenic effect of Dianabol is 45 and its anabolic one is 90. Turanabol is not for rapid gains. But rather good results manifest themselves in muscle and strength gains, if you take it over several weeks. The athletes taking Turanabol do not look as puffy as those taking Testosterone, Dianabol, and Anadrol 50.
Dosage and Usage
At the dosage of 10, 20 or 40 mg/day the maximum blood concentration of Turanabol is 1.5 -3.5 or 4.5 times the concentration of endogenous testosterone (also see Dianabol). Thus the efficiency of this steroid mainly depends on the dosage – 0.4 x pound (body weight) x days = number of tablets to take overall. So a 200 pound athlete has to take only 4 tablets of 5 mg (20mg/day.) Usually bodybuilders take 8-10 tablets of 5 mg, that is 40-50 mg/day. There is a lot of reports about good results with this dosage – gain of solid muscle mass and strength, low water retention, and rare estrogen-caused side effects. These characteristics make Turanabol very popular among powerlifters and weightlifters. And also this steroid is sutable both for men and women.
A very effective combination of steroids for male bodybuilders consists of 50 mg Turanabol/day, 228 mg Parabolan/week, and 150 mg Winstrol Depot/week. Those who have burned their fat by dieting and/or by using fatburners (e.g. Clenbuterol, Ephedrine, Salbutamol, Cytomel, Triacana), can easily find that the above said combination will lead to hard and sharply-defined muscles. Besides, there are no such side-effects as enlarged breasts, estrogen surplus, and watery, puffy-looking muscles.
Turanabol is also very popular for its quick breakdown and fast excretion of metabolites through the urine. Nevertheless it’s difficult to answer the answer regarding how many days before a test one should stop taking Turanabol in order to be “clean”. There are reports about athletes who were negative in a doping test having discontinued Turinabol five days before the test. Besides, the names Turanabol or chlordehydromethyltestosterone are rarely associated with positive urine analyses.
Side Effects of Turanabol
The side effects of Turanabol are gender-specific and depend on the dosage. In women the virilization symptoms start to occur when dosages exceeding 20 mg/day are taken for a long time. In men the reduced testosterone production is a common thing. There are also rare cases of gynecomastia, water retention and high blood pressure. Acne, gastrointestinal pain, and uncontrolled aggressive behavior are an exception rather than the rule. An increased libido is frequent in both sexes.
Since chlordehydromethyltestosterone is 17-alpha alkylated in high dosages it can be toxic to the liver. Thus one should check liver functions regularly. Turinabol is one of steroids that can be safely taken without interruption for a long time. Studies showed that male athletes who took 10 mg Turanabol/day for a period of six weeks had no health-threatening effects.
