Some athletes take a form of steroids - known as anabolic- androgen steroids or just anabolic steroids - to increase their muscle mass and strength. Methandienone is an orally applicable steroid with a great effect on the protein metabolism. The effect of Mehtandienone promotes the protein synthesis, thus it supports the buildup of protein. This effect mani-fests itself in a positive nitrogen balance and an improved well being. Mehtandienone has a very strong anabolic and androgenic effect.
Although it has been manufactured for decades, and many new steroids have been invented since Methandienone was first introduced, demand for Methandienone is still very strong. For most steroid users Methandienone becomes their first steroid cycle since it is a very popular compound with side-effects that are easily predictable. Since Methandienone is an oral steroid it is preferred by many people who are not ready to self-administer steroid injections. Even the top level bodybuilders today continue to use Metandienone during their bulking cycles and off-season maintenance.
New steroid users will sometimes use Methandienone alone as a first try into steroids, but that is not the best way to do it. Experienced bodybuilders use Methandienone in conjunction with other injectable steroids, preferrably testosterone cypionate or enanthate, during bulking cycles. Methandienone is used to boost muscle gains quickly during the first four weeks of an injectable and oral steroid stack. When used in the common dose range of 30mg to 50mg per day, any user can see an increase of weight by as much as 15lbs. Once Methandienone use is discontinued around week four, the injectable steroids begin to take effect and continue to solidify gains.
Methandienone Dosage (Man):
For physique-or performance-enhancing purposes, usual dosing for men is 25-50 mg daily divided in four or five dose. This dosing is optimal although high rang bodybuilders take around 250 mg daily. Cycles are usually lasting between 6 and 8 weeks in length followed by 6-8 weeks off. The half-life of Methandienone is about 3-5 hours.
Methandienone Dosage (Women):
When used by women it is very effective with dosage 5-10 mg. When used by women, strong virilization symptoms are possible. Some do experiment with it, however, and often find low doses (2.5-5 mg) of this steroid quite effective for new muscle growth. Studies have demonstrated that a majority of women will notice acne, which is indicative of androgenicity, at a dosage of only 10 mg per day. Children are likely to notice virilizing effects with as little as 2.5 mg per day.
Methandienone should be taken on an empty stomach.Taking an oral anabolic steroid with food may decrease its bioavailability caused by the fat-soluble nature of steroid hormones, allowing some of the drug to dissolve with undigested dietary fat, reducing its absorption from the gastrointestinal tract.
Methandienone is aromatized by the body, and is a moderately estrogenic steroid. To avoid gynecomastia if you are sensitive, antiestrogen like Clomifene Citrate and/or Proviron or Tamoxifene should be added to the cycle to keep the estrogen under control. You can choose even better solution like aromatase inhibitor Arimidex (anastrozole), which is a more effective for estrogen control but it is also much more expensive.
Side effect can be acne, aggression and hypertension. The drug is 17-alkylated what protects it from being deactivation by the liver so it is toxic to this organ. Some products like a Cod Liver Oil or Primrose Oil or other, which contains linolenic acid, support a liver.
Store it at room temperature (15 to 30 degree Celsius). Do not keep the drug where heat, light and moisture is found. The drug should be protected from them. The pills need to be safely kept in an air tight box. Store the drug in dark, cool and clean area of home. It should not be reachable to children.
