Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is an oral steroid which contains 10mg of the hormone Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, and is known under brand name Oral Turinabol. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone was first discovered in East Germany in 1962. The steroid became very popular due to its high anabolic properties. The anabolic activity of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone has a favorable balance of anabolic to androgenic effect. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is a safe steroid and often described as having properties somewhere between Dianabol, and Anavar. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is not able to aromatase into estrogen, so estrogenic side-effects are rare, however some reports have been given of mild gynocomastia symptoms. The exact cause is not entirely certain, but there is the possibility of Turinabol having some action on the estrogen receptor. The results of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone in bodybuilding are often reported by bodybuilders as being similar to those of D-bol, yet without any of the bloat. The lack of bloat is due to the fact that oral turinabol doesnot aromatize in the body, and therefore no estrogen related side effects become present. Users of this steroid often report very good gains in strength along with a slight gain in quality muscle mass. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is often used as a jump start to a cycle. Here the quick acting effects of the oral allow the bodybuilder to start experiencing gains and pumps early on, while the injectables being used in the cycle have more time to take effect. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is a very versatile steroid and can be used effectively in both cutting and bulking cycles. It stacks well with virtually all compounds, and is also effective at lowering SHBG in the body, thus making the other compounds, such as Testosterone, even more effective. Oral turinabol is also commonly used as a bridge in between cycles. Here a low dose of the drug (10-15mgs a day) will be used in between cycles in order to prevent a total crash and to help the bodybuilder preserve gains made from the previous cycle. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is fairly androgenic and all of the androgenic side effects are possible when taking this drug. Androgenic side effects can include things such as oily skin, acne, and increased growth of facial hair. In women androgen can cause masculizing side effects such as deepening of the voice, clitoral enlargement, and the growth of facial hair. Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is a c17 alpha alkylated steroid, so the possibility of liver damage should be taken into account when designing a cycle that includes it. Its good practice to keep dosages within reasonable levels and the duration of usage should be limited to around 6 weeks to avoid hepatotoxicity. Users may also wish to run some sort of liver protecting agent along side of this drug such as milk thistle or Liv-52. Men would take the drug in dosages of 15-40mg per day, depending on goals, for a period of 4-8 weeks. Women athletes also find favor with Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone and would often fine a dosage of 5mg per day for 4-6 weeks to be sufficient for producing desirable results.
