Oral Turinabol (Chlordehydromethyltestosterone)
Oral Turinabol is one of those substances that has gained what I would call a �quiet cult status� amongst bodybuilders. It was first developed by scientists in East Germany for use by their Olympic athletes. The success achieved by those athletes is testament to its effectiveness. The fact that it was used extensively for enhancing sports performance also meant that it was subject to many trials with documented results proving very impressive.
So what does Oral Turinabol have to offer that is so special?
Well it does provide good lean muscle gains and, although strength and muscle increases will not be as dramatic as with some other compounds, they will be less likely to be accompanied by water retention. This means that you are more likely to keep any gains made when coming off a cycle. In addition to this, Oral Turinabol does not create estrogen related side effects (e.g. gynecomastia) although it is 17-alpha alkylated which means it can be toxic to the liver so it is wise to use some form of liver support when on a cycle (e.g. Silymarin, Dandelion, NAC).
Oral Turinabol has been described as a derivative of Dianabol although it does have a much lower level of androgenic activity. Studies have revealed it to have anywhere from 0 � 6 in terms of androgenic effects and 53 for anabolic effects (based on a score of 100 each for testosterone). This means that it will not give you the bloated, puffy look often observed by those who use Dianabol. In fact, many users have compared it to Anavar in terms of results.
Negative side effects are rare with this substance and are usually the result of using cycles that are either too long or too high in dosage. The aforementioned risk of liver toxicity and a lowering of the clotting ability of the blood are the only things to really look out for. It has also been implicated as regards the lowering of natural testosterone levels � but once again this is generally dose related. There have been reports of women suffering more adverse side effects than men when using this substance, however these reactions occurred in women who were taking almost double the amount taken by their male counterparts�so of course they would get more side effects!
It has been recommended that men should take between 20-40mg every day and women 5-10mg/day. However, in real life terms male bodybuilders usually prefer an amount of 0.4mg per pound of bodyweight.
One of the many interesting things about Oral Turinabol is its ability to reduce SHBG�s binding to other steroids, which leads to the freeing up of more testosterone in the body. For this reason many athletes find it a valuable accompaniment to any cycle � particularly those involving the use of testosterone. The fact that Oral Turinabol is not associated with aromatization (i.e. conversion to estrogen) also adds to its attractiveness.
All in all, when you consider the fact that it produces little in the way of troublesome side effects (when used in reasonable dosages) and produces a high quality gain in muscle mass over time, Oral Turinabol is definitely worth considering as part of an effective cycle. Even used on its own it will definitely produce a noticeable improvement in mass and strength. The gains will not be astounding but they will be more easily maintained since the improvements made on Oral Turinabol are not an illusion created by water weight
