Also known as Methandienone, Anabol, Dianabol, D-bol, Methanabol is still one of the most effective strength and size building oral steroid. Dianabol causes considerable water retention and aromatizes quite a bit so you will see quite a bit of dosage jumps while using it. Dianabol is now available under its generic name of Methandrostenelone. Orginally Dianabol was developed in the mid-forties and experimentally used on returning prisoners of war who had been on very low food intakes. The generic version may be the best price if Anadrol keeps rising in price. Not many women use it because it is high in androgens. Some people report sleeplessness with high dosages. Dianabol was and still is one of the most popular steroids available. It is the second most effective steroid and also the second most toxic one due to its C17-alpha-alkyl group which is associated with liver dysfunction. Carefully taken in reasonable dosages it gives extremely good results in both mass and strength. To counterbalance the side effects it is advisable to use Proviron and Legalon (natural liverprotector). Dianabol can be taken together with Sustanon or Deca-Durabolin for really impressive results.
