How Does Dianabol Work?
Dianabol, also called dianabol or methandrinolone and also sold under the brand names Dianapride and methanolide among many others, is a type of hormone-like compound that is anabolic, androgenic steroid drug that is still used widely across the world for body-building purposes. However, it is increasingly being used as a performance-enhancing drug for athletes and bodybuilders. It’s frequently taken orally. It’s usually marketed as a dietary supplement because of its effectiveness in building lean muscle mass (including reducing fat) and strength. It has also been marketed as a diet pill because of its effectiveness in weight loss.
The androgens in Dianabol are mimicked by the androgen receptor and so it’s believed that the drug somehow stimulates androgenic activity. This is why Dianabol is highly effective at inducing anabolic responses when used topically – to the extent that it can completely block the action of the anabolic hormone testosterone. For this reason, Dianabol is sometimes referred to as “the male steroid” or “the testosterone secretory inhibitor.” This means that unlike most androgens, which work by binding to androgen receptors and then increasing concentrations of the hormone in the blood, Dianabol directly stimulates production of testosterone from the testes.
In the past, Dianabol was a very popular weight-loss and muscle-building supplement. Athletes in the United States commonly used Dianabol for a variety of reasons. To this day, hundreds of athletes use Dianabol as an aid for improving their body composition, especially those who have been a part of the United States Olympic Team and participate in events that require weight-lifting.
Now that you know what Dianabol is and why it works, you should see a template for beginning a phase of Dianabol use with caution. As with many androgens, there are some serious side effects associated with taking too much of Dianabol. Androgenic alopecia is one of the side effects that can occur when using Dianabol. If you start to experience thinning or changes in hair in the face, chest or arms – particularly if you’ve been taking testosterone supplements – you should discontinue use immediately and see a doctor. Thinning of the skin on the back of the upper arms may also occur if you’ve been taking anabolic steroids for a while. Additionally, the heart and blood vessels can be affected by the androgenic and increase your risk for stroke or heart disease.
In order to prevent these serious side effects, use Dianabol under the guidance of a medical professional. Simply take the recommended dose as directed for six weeks. Follow all directions on the bottle and don’t miss doses. If you experience any unpleasant or unusual side effects, contact your doctor immediately and don’t stop taking the drug. In some cases, if a severe reaction occurs, such as rapid heartbeat, sweating, fast breathing, dizziness, tightness of the throat or pain in the chest, you may need emergency treatment by emergency medical personnel or you could seek immediate medical attention yourself.
For purposes of clarity, we’re only going to discuss two of the many medical uses for Dianabol. First, it’s used as an anabolic (making hormones) for muscle growth. It’s also marketed under several brand names, including HGH Elite, GenF20 and HGH Optimum. This isn’t intended to be a complete list. You should make sure you do your research on the brand names linked to the bottle of Dianabol you purchase.
Next, Dianabol is used as a legal steroid for hormone replacement therapy. To this day, it remains the only approved all-natural replacement for synthetic HRT. As with the muscle growth example, this isn’t intended to be a complete list of all of the legal steroids on the market. Again, do your research. Hormone replacements such as this have been approved by the FDA, but they are not all-natural, nor do their manufacturers guarantee their effectiveness when used for long periods of time.
The last major use of Dianabol is in the treatment of liver disease. Some of the most serious and complicated cases of liver disease require patients to be put on strict liver detoxification and maintenance programs. Since Dianabol is a powerful inhibitor of TCA (tolline carboxylic acid), it may be particularly useful in cases where patients’ livers are over-producing TCA (also known as Enberel). For this reason, Dianabol is one of the most commonly prescribed drug-free (or drug-suppressive) therapies for liver disease. Like so many other products in the weight loss and muscle building supplements market, though, there are a variety of potential adverse reactions with Dianabol. The key is to do your research.
