Androgenic effect of the drug in pretty poor (6 out of 100), but in combination with anabolic effect (54 out of 100), Turanabol become extremely effective drug. For instance, dianabol has androgenic effect 43/100 and anabolic effect 90/100, but, in turn, dianabol has much more side effects and unacceptable for performance sportsmen such as runners or cyclists. With Turanabol you won’t have problems with enlarged breasts, excessive estrogen or watery, puffy outlook like with dianabol.
Oral turinabol is actually a version of methandrostenolone with extra chlorine atom in the fourth position. Hence the official name of turinabol is 4-chloro-alpha-Dihydromethyltestosteron. This upgrade has made the drug practically non-aromatized. Even more, turinabol metabolites very quickly leave the body, making huge advantage against the threat of doping tests.
Like the vast majority of oral AAS oral turinabol is 17-alpha alkylated, thus is potentially harmful to the liver. However, negative impact on the liver was not reported even after prolonged use.
Oral turinabol sufficiently resembles methandrostenolone not only on the structure of the molecule but the action of both drugs is also very similar. Turinabol produces less gains, but this is “quality”, lean mass and also it produces less side effects. Despite turinabol does not aromatize and is quite mild drug, prolonged usage may cause the suppression of secretion of endogenous testosterone but at much lesser extent comparing to methandrostenolone (dianabol) and it’s easily rejuvenated.
Turinabol is mostly used to build lean body mass and strength without water retention, which often occurs with Daianabol and testosterone. The results with Turanabol straightly depends on the daily dosage, which normally varies between 20 to 100 mg. Athletes below 90 kgs experience no side effects at 20 mg daily and more heavy athletes easily adopt 40 – 50 mg daily.
