Anastrozole belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal aromatase inhibitors. Anastrozole is a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor, which reduces the amount of oestrogen (female sex hormone) made by the body in postmenopausal women. In some types of breast cancer, oestrogen can help the cancer cells grow. By blocking oestrogen, Anastrozole may slow or stop the growth of cancer. Anastrozole should only be taken by postmenopausal women. Anastrozole is not recommended for use in men, children or women who are not postmenopausal. There is no evidence that Anastrozole is addictive.
Clenbuterol Its drug class is Beta 2 Sympathomitetic and it is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. Clen has been around for at least 3 decades. It was developed as a treatment for asthma and other respiratory problems. It was prescribed for obstructive pulmonary disease, because it is a smooth muscle relaxer. As a bronchodilator and decongestant it made breathing easier for those suffering from breathing disorders. Clenbuterol is the generic name, but you may see it marketed as Spiropent, Dilaterol, and Ventipulmin. Another use for this drug soon came to light. It works as a weight loss agent and as a performance enhancing drug.
Clomiphene is typically prescribed for women to aid in ovulation. In men, the application of Clomid causes an elevation of follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. As a result, natural testosterone production is also increased. This effect is obviously beneficial to the athlete, especially at the conclusion of a steroid cycle when endogenous testosterone levels are subnormal. When an athlete discontinues the use of steroids, his testosterone levels will most likely be suppressed. If endogenous testosterone levels are not brought to normal, a dramatic loss in size and strength may occur. Clomid plays a crucial role in preventing this crash in athletic performance. Bodybuilders find that a daily intake of 50-100 mg of clomiphene citrate over a two week period will bring endogenous testosterone production back to an acceptable level. Clomid will gradually raise testosterone levels over its period of intake. Since an immediate boost in testosterone is often desirable, athlete will commonly use HCG (human choronic gonadotropin) for a couple of weeks, and the continue treatment with Clomid. Clomid is also effective as an anti-estrogen. Most athletes will suffer from an elevated estrogen level at the conclusion of a cycle. A high estrogen level combined with a low testosterone level puts an athlete in serious risk of developing gynocomastia. With the intake of Clomid, the athlete gets the dual effect of blocking out some of the effects of estrogen, while also increasing endogenous testosterone production.
Similar to all aromatase inhibitors (AIs), letrozole, by binding to the aromatase enzyme, prevents estrogen from being released. It is known as a type II aromatase inhibitor. It is the most powerful AI available; in fact, studies have shown it to drops estrogen levels in women by up to 98%. In men, clinical studies have shown a drastic reduction in estrogen levels very quickly of up to 65%. The main reason may be because it has the ability to crush estrogen through competitive/reversible binding to the heme of the relevant cytochrome P450 unit (protein enzyme).
Proviron is an interesting and often overlooked compound. It's an orally active form of DHT and delivers all the good and the bad that DHT has to offer. DHT is pure androgen, but unlike testosterone, it doesn't cause any water retention. DHT is also what makes muscle "hard." It lowers SHBG (Sex hormone Binding Globulin) thus preventing estrogen to form and can be used to prevent aromatization from other compounds. DHT is also what attributes to erectile rigidity. There are drawbacks however, most notably prostate hypertrophy and hair loss. So we know DHT can be tricky and we know we need it. So where does Proviron fall into the equation? Well, it can be a nice addition to any cycle for a variety of reasons. Since it lowers SHBG it allows for more total testosterone to become bioavailable. Up to 90% of testosterone, be it natural or administered, remains in a "bound" state (due to SHBG) rendering it useless. Proviron will release more active testosterone into the bloodstream so you can reap more of the benefits.Proviron works as well as an anti estrogen, in fact, it's superior to most traditional anti e's. Instead of removing estrogen, it never has a chance to form in the first place.Proviron is also excellent for contest preparation because it adds density and definition. Realize, androgen receptors are found in fat calls as well as muscle cells and DHT binds so well that there's a distinct fat burning effect from its use.Many people use Proviron in between cycles to maintain gains and libido. However, DHT will not do much in regard to maintaining muscle. And as with any drug, a tolerance is developed over time so using Proviron to help a lagging libido will just add to further inhibition once the use of the drug has ceased. There's some speculation that Proviron isn't suppressive or especially liver toxic so it does not have to be cycle, but that rational is patently false. Because it isn't 17 alpha alkylated it isn't as hard on the liver or the liver as other oral steroids but liver must still filter it. Pure DHT also does not shut down the HPTA as quickly as other androgens though it will still suppress over time. Using it to "ease out" of a cycle can make for a smooth transition back to a natural state.
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.
Oxandrolone was introduced to the market in 1964. The clinical purpose for this drug was as a mild alternative to other steroids, one so mild that could even be prescribed to women and children for the purpose of gaining weight following trauma, surgery, severe infection or illness. It has even been prescribed to patients who fail to maintain a normal weight even without any pathological reason. Currently it has some uses in patients who suffer wasting diseases such as AIDS.Among steroid users oxandrolone is known as a very potent steroid that is used mainly for cutting purposes. Most people who use oxandrolone will stack it with other cutting steroids like Winstrol and Primobolan Depot. Oxandrolone is often taken in an effort to help maintain muscle mass while losing body fat.Oxandrolone is used by those who seek to get leaner and cut large amounts of bodyfat. For this purpose it should be used in ranges of up to 60mg per day. Oxandrolone is preferred for cutting cycles since it does not cause the undesirable water retention, which gives the physique a smooth appearance. Women may use this steroid to gain muscle size and they report favorable results with as little as 5mg per day, some even go as high as 20mg.
Oxymetholone (also known as anadrol,A-drol, or just Drol) is one of the most mysterious of all steroids. It was released in the U.S. Back in 1960 to treat anemia - which in itself is weird since anemia was all but non existent by that time in most developed countries. (And B12 and iron supplementation worked fine is most cases). Then again, it was originally developed by Syntex, a Mexican company so that may explain the need for a medication to counteract malnutrition. Equally odd is that it's derivative of DHT so it does not aromatize, yet, it can cause gynecomastia and bloating. It was once thought that the affliction was progesterone related but oxymetholone isn't a progestin either, nor does it have any progestenic activity. (One theory is that the chemical itself somehow activates estrogen receptors). Also unusual is its dose - a whopping 50mgs per pill. This has led to the reputation that oxymetholone is the strongest oral steroid available. In reality, it's the strongest DOSED oral steroid available. The truth is, oxymetholone doesn't bind very well to the androgen receptor which is most likely the reason it has such a high dosage. It needs to be high in order to be effective. Oxymetholone is also considered highly toxic but that too may be due to the dosage more than anything else. When these drugs were being tested they were using recommend dosages. Compare one oxymetholone tab to a single stanozolol or oxandrolone tab, which came in doses of 2.5 or 10 mgs each and it's no wonder oxymetholone came off as more toxic per dose. Therefore, oxymetholone tabs are often referred to as a A-bombs. Since it's a medication used to treat anemia, one of oxymetholone main component is the ability to increase red blood cell count. This leads to increased strength though increased blood volume, but also to water retention. This increase in fluids in part, also contributes to the extraordinary leaps in strength. The more water you hold, the greater the hydraulic strength, plus, the more your joints are lubricated the more "padding" it receives when undergoing extreme stress.
Structurally stanozolol, also often referred to as winstrol(a product name of Zambon pharmaceuticals, containing stanozolol as the effective compound), is not capable of converting into estrogen. Likewise an antiestrogen is not necessary when using stanozolol , gynecomastia not being a concern even among sensitive individuals. Since estrogen is also the culprit with water retention, instead of bulk produces a lean, quality look to the physique with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention. This makes stanozolol a favorable steroid to use during cutting cycles , when water and fat retention are a major concern. This steroid is also very popular among athletes in combination strength/speed sports such as Track and Field. In such disciplines one usually does not want to carry around excess water weight, and may therefore find the raw muscle-growth brought about by stanozolol quite favorable over the lower quality mass gains of more estrogenic agents. Stanozolol is often combined with other steroids depending on the desired result. For bulking purposes, a stronger androgen like testosterone, Dianabol or Anadrol is usually added. Here stanozolol will balance out the cycle a bit, and give us good anabolic effect with lower overall estrogenic activity than if taking such steroids without it. The result should be a considerable gain in new muscle mass, with a more comfortable level of water and fat retention. For contest and dieting phases we could alternately combine stanozolol with a non-aromatizing androgen such as Parabolan or Halotestin . Such combinations should help bring about the strongly defined, hard look of muscularity so sought after among bodybuilders.
T-Active is used to treat men who have erectile dysfunction (also called sexual impotence). T-Active belongs to a group of medicines called phosphodiesterase 5 (PDE5) inhibitors. These medicines prevent an enzyme called phosphodiesterase type-5 from working too quickly. The penis is one of the areas where this enzyme works. Erectile dysfunction is a condition where the penis does not harden and expand when a man is sexually excited, or when he cannot keep an erection. When a man is sexually stimulated, his body's normal response is to increase blood flow to his penis to produce an erection. By controlling the enzyme, T-Active helps to maintain an erection after the penis is stroked by increasing bload flow to the penis. Without physical action to the penis, such as that occurring during sexual intercourse, tadalafil will not work to cause an erection.
When Oral Turinabol is used in an anabolic steroid cycle, less than 20 mg per day will be an almost unnoticeable addition to a stack, or will be a very weak cycle if used alone. There is little point in exceeding 50 or 60 mg/day, as added anabolic effect will be small if any. And adverse side effects of excessive muscle pumps and/or blood pressure elevation are often at a tolerance limit at this point, while becoming excessive past it. I don’t recommend combining OT with other oral anabolic steroids. Instead, when using OT and wishing to increase anabolism, one or more injectables should be added rather than another oral. A sufficient reason for this is that results are much better from combining an injectable rather than any other oral (with possible exception of oxandrolone.) Another reason is that at effective doses of OT, hepatotoxicity is already as high as can be considered reasonable. Another alkylated steroid should not be added.
Boldenone Undecylenate is classified as an anabolic steroid exhibiting less androgenic activity than its analogue testosterone. It is a highly anabolic, moderately androgenic steroid. It has a very favorable effect on the organism's nitrogen balance so that the main effect consists of a distinctly increased protein synthesis in the muscle cell. Boldenone was actually created while attempting to make a product which would be be a long acting injectable methandienone(D-bol). What was actually created was a product which, in the real world acts nothing like D-bol, despite it's similarity to it chemically. A simple way to think of Boldenone, chemically at least, is simply as methandienone without the 17-alpha-methyl group (that's the thing which makes methandienone able to be ingested orally and not be destroyed by your liver). However, having had first hand experience with both Boldenone as well as D-bol, we can tell you that the results from each are vastly different.To make Boldenone, a double bond was added between carbon atoms 1 and 2 of the Steran Nucleus oftestosterone. What does this mean? Well, first of all, since Boldenone was created by one simple modification in the testosterone molecule, you could rightly suspect that it shares many similarities with it. Boldenone is just as anabolic as testosterone (as you can tell by its anabolic rating above), but only half as androgenic. Those ratings can be quite deceiving though, as I don't know anyone who would claim that you can gain as much weight on Boldenone as you can gain on an equal amount of testosterone (even though strength gains from the two compounds are very similar).
Drostanolone propionate is an injectable anabolic steroid derived from dihydrostestosterone (DHT). Here, the DHT has been modified with a 2-methyl group to increase its anabolic properties, making this drug much more effective at promoting muscle growth than the non-methylated DHT. Drostanolone propionate was founded in the 1950's. A company called Syntex developed the compound along with such other well known steroids as Anadrol and Superdrol. Around ten years later masteron drostanolone was first introduced as a prescription medication. In the US, the FDA approved drostanolone for use in postmenopausal women for the treatment of inoperable breast cancer. Eventually other prescription medications were developed which better served the same conditions that this drug was originally approved for, and slowly manufacturers began to voluntarily discontinue production of it. Now days, this drug is no longer available as a prescription drug and can only be purchased on the black market where it is still a popular compound amongst the bodybuilding and performance enhancing community.Masteron ,as it is often referred to, is a steroid with moderate anabolic properties. This steroid is most often used by bodybuilders who are preparing for a show due to the fact that the androgenic nature of it will give a hard, defined look to the muscles. Users of masteron often report increases in strength and muscular stamina. It is also used by athletes in speed related and weight regulated sports, where it is a favorite due to its ability to produce good gains in lean muscle mass and strength with some reduction in body fat and minimal side effects. Drostanolone propionate cannot convert to estrogen, meaning that estrogenic side effects such as water bloat and gynecomastia shouldn't be a concern when running this steroid. Masteron is most often used in cutting cycles where it is stacked with other hardening, non aromatizing agents such as trenbolone and winstrol. These types of cycles will produce usually no water weight and the mass gained off of them will be quality rock hard muscle mass. Masteron can be androgenic and the usual androgen related side effects are possible from using this substance. Androgenic side effects can include things such as oil skin, acne, and increased body and facial hair. Like all other anabolic/androgenic steroids when taken in dosages that can promote muscle growth, masteron can suppress the body's natural testosterone function and production. Because of this, a proper post cycle therapy protocol should be followed upon the discontinuance of a cycle. Most users typically choose to run agents such as clomid and HCG to effectively get their body to start producing testosterone from the testes and pituitary gland again.
Nandrolone decanoate, also commonly referred to as Deca is one of the most popular injectable steroids. It's popularity is likely due to the fact that Deca exhibits significant anabolic effects with minimal androgenic side effects. Considered by many the best overall steroid for a man to use (side effects vs. results) Deca is most commonly injected twice per week at a dosage of 200-400mg. With this amount, estrogen conversion is slight so gyno is no problem. Also uncommon are problems with liver enzymes, blood pressure or cholesterol levels. At higher dosages, side effects may become increasingly more frequent, but this is still a very well tolerated drug. It should also be noted that in HIV studies, Deca has been shown not only to be effective at safely bringing up the lean bodyweight of patient but also to be beneficial to the immune system.For bodybuilding, Deca can effectively be incorporated in both mass and cutting cycles it stacks good with sustanon, dianabol, anadrol... One major drawback to Deca is that it can be detected in a drug screen for as long as a year after use. Unfortunately for many competitive athletes, this makes Deca and other nandrolone products off limits.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid. The 19-nor classification refers to a structural change of the testosterone hormone in that the carbon atom has been removed at the 19th position. This simple structural change gives us Nandrolone, and by adding the short Phenylpropionate ester we have Nandrolone Phenylpropionate. On the basis of the hormone’s function, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is identical to Nandrolone Decanoate. Both forms are comprised of the same active hormone. In the case of NPP we have a shorter ester version that gives a larger burst of Nandrolone after injection, but also carries a much shorter half-life. This means Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has to be injected more frequently than its larger ester counterpart if blood levels are to remain stable. Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is slightly more anabolic than testosterone with a rating of 125 compared to testosterone’s rating of 100. It is also significantly less androgenic with a rating of 37 compared to testosterone’s rating of 100. The reduced androgenicity is due to the Nandrolone hormone reducing to dihydronandrolone (DHN) instead of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). This is one of the reasons Nandrolone Phenylpropionate can be well tolerated at higher doses in some men than higher doses of testosterone. Nandrolone Phenylpropionate can also be used for cutting cycles, although it’s not commonly thought of as a cutting steroid. This steroid will significantly protect lean muscle mass better than many steroids. When we diet we must burn more calories than we consume. This is the only way body fat can be lost. Unfortunately, this puts lean muscle tissue at risk. When we diet some lean tissue will be lost, but successful dieting limits this loss, and Nandrolone can provide this protective measure. And once again the recovery benefits will be tremendous, especially when recovery can already be incredibly difficult when dieting due to the caloric deficit.
Likewise an antiestrogen is not necessary when using stanozolol , gynecomastia not being a concern even among sensitive individuals. Since estrogen is also the culprit with water retention, instead of bulk produces a lean, quality look to the physique with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention.

Testosterone Cypionate is a synthetic version of the naturally produced testosterone hormone. This hormone is responsible for many different physical and mental characteristics in males. It promotes sex drive, fat loss, helps with gaining and maintaining lean muscle mass, increases bone density, and may even protect against heart disease. Whether it is naturally produced or through the use of Testosterone Cypionate, these traits do not change. All other steroids are actually the testosterone molecule that has been altered to change the properties of the hormone. Testosterone Cypionate carries a rating of 100 when measuring its anabolic/androgenic structure and this rating is used to measure all other steroids. This would make testosterone the "father" of all anabolic steroids used by athletes today.
Testosterone Decanoate will cause an increase in IGF-1 levels, Red Blood Cell count. Testosterone Decanoate is subject to aromatization as well as 5alpha-reduction, which are the pathways through which testosterone is converted to estrogen and dihydrotestosterone respectively. Commonly used to put on mass and size while increasing strength. This hormone is an extremely effective bulking agent, and in fact is one of the best muscle-builders known. Testosterone replacement therapy in males for conditions associated with primary and secondary hypogonadism
Testosterone Enanthate a long acting form of the parent hormone testosterone. In this particular case, the parent hormone has been attached to the Enanthate ester to delay its release into the bloodstream over several days. Testosterone Enanthate has a release time of between 8-10 days. It is typically injected once every one to three weeks, though some users opt for a twice a week frequency as well. This version of testosterone will cause the usual side effects associated with Testosterone, including: hair loss, acne, gynecomastia and eventual cessation of the body’s natural testosterone production. Many of these side effects can be associated (if not totally attributed) with the conversion of Testosterone into Dihydrotestosterone and estrogen.
Testosterone is responsible for promoting health and well-being through enhanced libido, energy, immunity, increased fat loss, gaining and maintaining lean muscle mass, preventing Osteoporosis (loss of bone density) and possible protection against heart disease. Testosterone is also responsible for normal growth and development of male sex organs and maintenance of secondary sex characteristics. Secondary sex characteristics are specific traits that separate the two sexes, but are not directly part of the reproductive system, for example: chest and facial hair, a distinguished jaw line, broad shoulders and increased muscle mass. Testosterone binds to the Androgen Receptors (AR), which thus causes accelerated muscle gain, fat loss, and muscle repair and growth. These mechanisms are stimulated by activation of the Androgen Receptors (either directly or indirectly as DHT).There are many possible side-effects associated with Testosterone Propionate use. This product has a high level of aromatization into estrogen and coverts to DHT (dihydrotestosterone) as well. Testosterone can convert to estrogen, the female sex hormone, creating a high risk of gynecomastia (formation of breast tissue in males). Also, supplementing Testosterone to your body will result in the shutting down of the body’s natural production of the hormone. The severity of side effects depend mostly on the dose and duration of circulating free testosterone and it’s conversion to estrogen and DHT. Testosterone’s anabolic/androgenic effects are dependant upon also dosage; the higher the dose the higher the muscle building effect.

Sustanon 250 contains, per mL, short-acting testosterone propionate, 60 mg of testosterone phenylpropionate, 60 mg of testosterone isocaproate, and 100 mg of testosterone decanoate. The first, testosterone propionate, is short-acting and gives Sustanon a quick onset of action in a steroid cycle. The other esters are medium to long-acting.
Trenbolone acetate is an injectable anabolic/androgenic steroid which is derived from the the steroid nandrolone. It's activity however is quite different to the point that direct comparisons between the two are difficult to make. Trenbolone acetate is a non estrogenic steroid and is considerably both more anabolic and androgenic than its parent nandrolone on a milligram for milligram basis. Trenbolone acetate was first extensively studied in 1967, described during a series of studies of experiments into synthetic steroids. Trenbolone is considered to be one of the strongest steroids available today. It is roughly three times more anabolic than testosterone and a very potent androgen as well. Users of Trenbolone often report incredible gains in strength and solid muscle mass. Trenbolone doesn't convert to estrogen, therefore the gains seen off of this steroid are lean, quality muscle mass. The high amounts of androgen also work to bring about a defined "ripped" look to the user's muscles. Although it doesn't convert to estrogen, trenbolone being a nandrolone derivative does act on the progesterone receptor and can cause related side effects because of this trait. Progesterone side effects are similar to those of estrogenic side effects and can include things such as bloat and gyncomestia . Because of this, users of trenbolone might want to consider running an agent such as bromocripten or cabasear in order to combat possible progesterone related side effects. Trenbolone is a versatile steroid and can be incorporated well into both bulking and cutting cycles. Users looking to bulk may choose to stack Trenbolone acetate with other steroids such as testosterone and an oral such as dianabol. Users looking to run a cutting cycle will often look to stack trenbolone with other steroids such as winstrol and masteron. It is important to note that trenbolone will shut down the body's natural testosterone production very quickly, thus making a post cycle therapy protocol essential upon the discontinuance of the drug.
Trenbolone Enanthate is a strictly underground product, and not available for human use by any major pharmaceutical supply house in the world. It combines a very popular parent hormone (trenbolone) with a long acting ester (enanthate). This allows the advantage of once a week injections. For a fairly long time, the only version of legitimate Trenbolone available on the black market was Trenbolone Acetate. This was a fast acting version of Trenbolone often made from powder or cattle implant pellets. Since Parabolan (Trenbolone with a slightly longer ester) had been removed from the market, it developed a cult-like reputation, and a longer acting Trenbolone product was in demand on the black market. The underground labs of the time responded with Trenbolone Enanthate.
