Functions & Traits:
Methandrostenolone is an anabolic androgenic steroid derived from testosterone. Officially, it is a structurally altered form of primary male androgen testosterone. Dianabol is the hormone testosterone with a double bond added on the carbon one and two positions. This slight change reduces the androgenic nature of the hormone. It also carries a methyl group added at the 17 carbon position that allows the hormone to survive oral intake, officially classifying Dianabol as a C17-alpha alkylated steroid. An important, injectable note Dianabol is also alkylated C17-alpha. The end result gives us an anabolic steroid with an androgenic rating of 40-60 with a much lower binding affinity for the androgen receptor compared to testosterone. However, it will also share a much weaker relationship to the serum binding protein, which results in an extremely powerful anabolic steroid. If in any doubt, this is an extremely powerful anabolic steroid carrying a powerful anabolic nature.
On a functional basis, Dianabol is one of the most easy-to-understand anabolic steroids. This steroid will broadly deliver its anabolic benefits, increasing protein synthesis, nitrogen retention and glycogenolysis. Protein synthesis represents the rate at which cells build proteins, the building blocks of muscle. Nitrogen retention, this is important because all muscle tissue is made up of approximately 16% nitrogen. The more nitrogen we retain, the more anabolic we will remain. On the other hand, a deficiency of nitrogen results in a catabolic or muscle loss state. So we are left with glycogenolysis, which refers to the ratio and conversion between glycogen and glucose. Through improved glycogenolysis, we are able to make better use of our total carbohydrate intake. Although in many ways these traits are fairly simple, they are strong enough to make Dianabol a remarkably powerful anabolic steroid.
Another important feature of Dianabol and perhaps one of the most important of all is the relationship it shares with other anabolic steroids. Dbol as it is often called is not what we label as a basic steroid. This is not an anabolic steroid we cycle around, but rather we added to a well-planned stack. Dianabol has the ability to create unbelievable synergy when conjoined with other anabolic steroids. For example, you could supplement with 100mg of Trenbolone, Masteron or Equipoise per day (doses and steroids are simply being used as an example, not actual recommendations) and the results you would get from 50mg per day of Trenbolone, Masteron or Equipoise Along side 50mg of Dianabol per day would be much more dramatic. You would have an identical amount of milligram total of anabolic steroids with or without Dianabol, but the added Dianabol would provide improvements.
