Anabolic and androgenic steroids are available as prescription medications to be used in cases in which the body does not make enough hormone and supplementation may be required. Some hormone supplements in this pathway include growth hormone and testosterone itself. These medications are legally prescribed by health-care providers, but this group of drugs is often used illegally and abused to help increase athletic performance and improve body appearance. When used in a well-nourished body, anabolic steroids will cause weight gain primarily due to an increase in muscle mass.
Winstrol (Stanozolol) is an Anabolic Steroid that was derived from Testosterone in 1962 by Winthrop Labs . The original purpose of this steroid was to help treat people suffering from anaemia, it is also often used for veterinary purposes. This high anabolic, low androgenic steroid does not bind to the androgen receptor. For this reason, Winstrol is considered a weak steroid in terms of its muscle building properties, it does, however, cause great increases in strength. Stanozolol is also a popular steroid for females due to its low androgenic properties it makes it a safer choice as side effects such as voice deepening and facial hair are a lower risk when compared to steroids such as Dianabol . This doesn’t mean females should use Winstrol as irreversible masculine side effects are still a risk.
