2018-05-14T09:06:27+00:00 May 14th, 2018|

Anadrol is one of the fastest acting anabolic steroids known to man.

It can deliver incredible results and some guys gain up to 1lb per day on it.

But it’s not all sunshine and rose.

Anadrol  is one of the most toxic anabolic steroids for you liver and it can destroy your health.

Before you even think about using Anadrol I would recommend you read the rest of this post to learn everything about it.

Or you can discover something better and safer than Anadrol for building muscle here.

What Is Anadrol 50?

Anadrol 50 is an AAS (anabolic androgenic steroid) and it’s actually the brand name for Oxymetholone.

The “50” just means that it’s usually dosed at 50mg per tablet.

Some other brand names for it are;

  • Anadroyd
  • Anasterona
  • Anapolon
  • Androlic
  • Anasterone
  • Nastenon
  • Hemogenin
  • Oxitosona
  • Oxitoland
  • Oxybolone
  • Oxyanabolic
  • Roboral
  • Protanabol
  • Synasteron
  • Synasterobe
  • Zenalosyn

It was originally created in the 1960’s to treat anemia and muscle wasting diseases.

In the early days a study was conducted over a period of 30 weeks on aids patients who were suffering from muscle wastage.

At the end of the 30 weeks the patients had gained an average of 8kg.

Of course it wasn’t long before bodybuilders found out that Anadrol could quickly help them gain muscle so they started using it too.

Anadrol can help you build muscle twice as fast but most steroid users will tell you to stay away from it because of the side effects.

We will get to that in a minute..

Strangely for therapeutic patients it increases appetite but at the doses required for bodybuilding it can actually suppress your appetite.

Anadrol is a 17aa steroid which means it has been altered structurally at the 17th atom to allow for oral consumption.

This is also what makes it so destructive to your liver.

Anadrol has a detection time of 8 weeks.

How To Use Anadrol?

Because Anadrol has a half life of just 16 hours it must be taken every day.

It’s a steroid for bulking and isn’t recommended for cutting because you will retain water while you’re using it.

Most of the results you will see from Anadrol will occur in the first 3 weeks and then taper off from there so there’s no need to use it for longer than 4-6 weeks at the most.

The main problem with this steroid is that your gains will diminish very quickly after you stop using it.

It’s usually paired with another bulking steroid such as Trenbolone or testosterone enanthate.

The reason that most guys use it in the first place is because it gets to work quickly and users can gain 1lb per day for the first couple of weeks.

This helps to kick-off a cycle to get some immediate gains until the slower acting steroids kick in.

For bulking you will see the best results at 50-100mg/day.

There’s no need to go over 100mg unless you want to kill your liver.

Price: A 50mg tablet will cost around $2.50

Where To Buy Anadrol 50: You can get it legally on prescription if your doctor thinks you need it otherwise you’ll have to get it on the black market which is risky because there are a lot of fakes.

Anadrol For Women? This steroid is not recommended for women because of the high risk of virilization.

Common Side Effects Of Anadrol

Lethargy and tiredness
Skin color changes
Urination problems
Stomach pain
Loss of appetite
Liver cancer
Cirrhosis – Liver disease

It’s a shame that such a powerful steroid can be so dangerous.

Anadrol 50 Results

One 12 week study at the University of Southern California showed that Anadrol is very effective at building muscle and can even help burn fat.

There results of the stude were;

  • Placebo: saw no noticeable results.
  • 50mg per day: LBM increased by 3.3kg and lost fat.
  • 100mg per day: LBM gained 4.2kg and lost fat.

Many guys see gains of up to 1lb per day during the first 2 weeks.

But remember when you stop taking it your gains will diminish rapidly.

Anadrol Faqs

How long does it take to kick in? Anadrol has a half life of 16 hours so it gets to work fast.

Should You Buy Anadrol 50?

The main problem with Anadrol 50 is that your gains will disappear very quickly after you stop taking it.

And at 50-100mg per day it is very toxic for your liver.

So it makes you wonder..

What’s the point of taking it in the first place if it’s dangerous and your gains aren’t going to last.

You use it for 4 weeks and gain some nice muscle but then it’s gone a couple weeks after that?!

Is it really worth destroying your liver for a couple weeks of being jacked?

      You can and you’ll probably see some good strength gains.

      Hi P.W.F good question. With Anadrol it’s almost impossible to keep your gains for a long period of time after you stop using it.

      Any gains you make with it will probably fade within 2-4 weeks. 6 at the most.

      Anadrol is more for kickstarting a cycle or busting through a plateau.

      You’ll also need a PCT.

      (I’ll be writing a post about post cycle therapies soon.)

      If you’re looking to build some muscle and don’t want to lose all your gains or risk the side effects then take a look at this Anadrol alternative https://crazy-bulks.com/product/anadrole/

      It’s definitely not as powerful as Anadrol but you’ll keep your gains and it’s safe.

    To cut down on risk is it worth taking for a short term of 3 weeks instead of 4 to 6 weeks
