ANDROGENIC RATING: unknown
Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is a potent derivative of methandienone. Regarding the structure, this oral steroid is a cross beteen methandrostenolone and Clostebol 4-chlorotestosterone. It has the same basic structure as methandienone with the addition of chlorine to 4 carbon positions. This change makes hlorodehydromethyltestosterone "gentle cousin" of methandienone, against which it shows no estrogenic effects, and much lower androgenic strength. Although anabolic power is also slightly smaller compared to methandienone, but it has a much better ratio of anabolic to androgenic strength. This means that at any dose it will exhibit much lower values of androgenic side effects. Since it is not capable of converting into estrogen, and has no estrogenic activity, it is not necessary to use an aromatase inhibitor during the treatment. This is related to its ability to minimize water retention and thus produce pure quality gains. This characteristic is why many users prefer it during definition period and during pre-competition period.
Although chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is considered as a substance with particular anabolic action, there is still a risk of androgenic side effects. Androgenic side effects include: oily skin, acne, body hair growth, hair loss. The risk of androgenic side effects increases along with an increase in dosage. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is a C17-alpha alkylated substance. This change allows the substance to survive hepatic metabolism and so oral use will get a much larger amount in the blood. All C17-alpha alkylated substances are toxic to the liver. And long-term irresponsible dosing may lead to liver damage. It is therefore recommended to monitor liver function during treatment and not extend the use beyond 6-8 weeks. It is also recommended to use nutritional supplements designed to detoxify the liver during treatment (such as milk thistle). Anabolic-androgenic steroids can have deleterious effects on blood cholesterol levels. This leads to a decrease in HDL (good) cholesterol and increase in LDL (bad) cholesterol.This imbalance represents a greater risk of arteriosclerosis. Oral anabolic steroids have a greater relative effect on serum lipids (fats) in comparison with injectable anabolic steroids. Chlorodehydromethy ltestosterone has a strong effect on the hepatic management of cholesterol due to its resistance to hepatic metabolism. It can also affect the blood pressure and triglyceride (fatty acids) and thereby increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. As the prevention of cardiovascular stress it is recommended to include cardio workout and minimize the intake of saturated fat, cholesterol, and simple carbohydrates throughout treatment. We also recommend taking fish oil (at least four grams per day), and nutritional supplements aimed at treating cholesterol levels along with antioxidants.
Effective oral dose for the purpose of building muscle mass is a 15-40mg in period of not more than 6-8 weeks. This quantity is sufficient to see the effects. It is mostly used in definition period and pre-competition training. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone has a synergistic effect when taken together with testosterone. It has the ability to bind to SHBG (a substance that reduces the effectiveness of extracorporeal testosterone), releasing a greater amount of testosterone in the blood. Turinabol has a half-life of 16 hours, which is quite a long time for oral anabolic steroid. Therefore, it is necessary to divide the daily dose. Recent experience pointed to the relatively short period of steroid detection in urine - only 25-30 days. However, latest backstage information showed that athletes who have taken this favourite substance were positive after 33 days after its discontinuation, for which they received a disqualification for up to two years.
