Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, also known by its much shorter name Turinabol, is a type of steroid.
This means that it was designed to induce muscle gains through the manipulation of growth hormones in the body.
This particular form of steroid has an interesting origin. It was originally used by East German Olympians order to bypass tests for performance enhancing drugs in professional athletics.
In order to accomplish this, the manufacturers of Turinabol combined two more powerful steroids to create a synthesized substance without common side effects.
As a result of this scheme, the substance now called Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone provides anabolic effects standard to most steroids of its kind, but without many of the androgenic side effects.
How Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone Works
Through the synthesis of Dianabol and Clostebol, Turinabol manages to induce a somewhat diminished anabolic growth effect on the body.
This lackluster muscle growth ability makes it an unappealing supplement to bodybuilders, but the additional effects of improved endurance and reduced recovery time make it more appealing to athletes.
Another aspect of this particular steroid that makes it appealing to athletes is the lack of severe androgenic effects.
This means that Turinabol is able to achieve its results with minimal effect on the body’s endocrine system.
Without severe hormone-changing effects such as the ability to become estrogen, individuals taking this steroid avoid common side effects such as gynocomastia and bloating.
Some of the effects of this drug on the body include:
Increased protein synthesis
Increased red blood cell count
Increased nitrogen retention
Because the muscle-growing properties of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone are weaker than many other popular steroids, it may seem like its viability is limited for bodybuilders.
However, the balance of anabolic to androgenic properties achieved in the creation of this chemical are skewed heavily toward the former, which prevents many of the most unappealing side effects that commonly come with steroid use.
Due to the fact that the chemicals introduced to the body through Turinabol are unable to be aromatized into estrogen, side effects such as breast growth and accumulated stomach fat in men are completely averted.
Because of this fact, and because of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone’s fringe benefits of decreased recovery time and increased muscular endurance, this steroid is considered by many to be an excellent entry-level anabolic substance.
Positive Effects of Turinabol Use
Bodybuilders or athletes have historically used Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone to enhance endurance and stamina and increase lean muscle mass.
A benefit of Turinabol was its capacity to reduce potential for water weight gain.
Other positives include:
Shorter recovery time from exercise
Higher stamina and endurance
Mild anabolic muscle growth
Negative Effects of Turinabol Use
Even though many people consider Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone to be one of the safer forms of steroids on the market, the truth is that it still comes with some nasty side effects.
The reason why it is referred to as safer is because many of the most infamous hormone-related side effects are absent.
However, the possibility of liver and heart damage when dosing with this substance is still high.
One common side experienced by individuals using Turinabol is increased stress on their liver.
This is caused by the steroid’s hepatotoxic properties, meaning that it increases the amount of liver enzymes produced in the body.
While this doesn’t necessarily lead to liver damage, it does heighten the liver’s susceptibility to damage to other risk factors such as alcohol consumption.
Another severe negative effect Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone can have on your body is higher cholesterol.
Some forms of cholesterol are better for the body than others, and chronic use of this substance has been linked to an increase of bad cholesterol production in the body, also known as LDL.
This can have devastating effects on your heart if preventative measures aren’t taken.
Finally, while Turinabol is specifically designed to avoid converting into estrogen inside the body, some mild androgenic effects have been observed.
This is due to the fact that any supplement that synthetically increases testosterone, meaning all forms of steroids, will block natural testosterone production in the body.
Especially when taking higher doses, side effects related to this phenomenon can be observed during a post-cycle, including male-pattern baldness and acne.
Some common side effects associated with this drug include:
Increased risk of liver damage
Increased levels of bad cholesterol
Excessive body hair growth
Diminished sexual performance
First, a disclaimer: it is not recommended that anyone attempt a cycle of any kind of steroid if they are younger than 25 years old and haven’t seriously trained for at least five years.
Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone should not be cycled for a period longer than eight weeks.
It is generally recommended that your cycle period is around six weeks, but eight weeks is still possible. Past this point, risk of liver damage becomes incredibly high.
Turinabol is most effective when used during a cut.
A good dosage for beginners is around 30 milligrams daily.
More experienced steroid users may want to take double that amount.
Due to its weaker potency, Turinabol can be taken in conjunction with other testosterone supplements during this time.
During your cycle, make sure to limit alcohol consumption and take Omega-3 supplements in order to reduce negative effects on your heart and liver.
Finally, be sure to follow standard post-cycle therapy with the use of SARMs and additional estrogen blockers such as Clomid.
This is important because even though androgenic effects aren’t observed during use of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, they are still likely to occur when coming off a cycle.
