The dosage used is important in determining the level of benefit received. Anabolic steroids tend to be most efficient at promoting muscle gains when taken at a moderately above therapeutic dosage level. Below this (therapeutic), potential anabolic benefits are often counterbalanced, at least to some extent, by the suppression of endogenous testosterone. At very high doses, smaller incremental gains are noticed. In the case of testosterone enanthate or cypionate, for example, a dosage of 100 mg per week is considered therapeutic, and is generally insufficient for noticing strong anabolic benefits. When the dosage is in the 300-600 mg per week range, however, the drug is highly efficient at supporting muscle growth. Above this range, a greater level of muscle gain may be noticed, but the amount will be small in comparison to the dosage increase. Below are some commonly used dosages for the steroids listed earlier. Avoid taking the higher end of the dosage range during your first couple of cycles. You will have excellent results from lower dosages during your first few cycles. Lower dosages are also less likely to cause excessive side-effects and give you the opportunity to learn how your body reacts to steroid usage.
This drug can bee seen as a cross between Dianabol (Methandrostenolone) and Anavar (Oxandrolone) , taking what many feel are the best features of each of these drugs and combining them into one prduct. Just like Anavar and Dianabol , Turinabol is 17-alpha-alkylated steroid , which allows it to be orally active and survive the first pass throuth the liver without being destroyed. Unfortunately, this also increases liver toxicity (hepatoxicicity). Liver Enzymes such as SGOT SGPT can be mildly to moderately elevated with use of Turanaplex , but they seem to quickly return to normal after the cycle. Turanaplex is one of the few drugs to be in high demand among both athletes as well as bodybuilders, regardless of whether they are on a bulking cycle or a cutting cycle. Athletes who have usedt this drug have reported that it is nearly as good for bulking as Dianabol, but with much less water retention. Reported weight gain with Turanaplex is generally less than experienced with classic oral bulking agents such as Dianabol or Anadrol (Oxymetholone) , but is much more "dry" and lean. Many have compared the quality of gains experienced with Turinabol to be similar to Anavar, but with more actual weight gain.
As previously noted, cholesterol levels can change when oral steroids are used, even for short periods. Recent research has pointed the finger at cholesterol as being one of the most important steroid related side effects bodybuilders want to avoid. The thickening of the blood (red blood count RBC), artery plaque, high blood pressure, high LDL and low HDL can and will lead to coronary heart disease (CHD) if adequate precautions aren’t taken. It is thus advised; all oral steroids are taken for cycles of 6-8 weeks and no longer. Support supplements are also advised, these include: Curcumin, Citrus Bergamot, Vitamin K2, Omega-3.
