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 anemia, 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.
For veterinary application, Upjohn claims that once-weekly doses supply constant levels. I am not sure if that is actually true or not — it might be true in terms of being clinically practical but not literally true. If true, then it may be that the observation of bodybuilders that frequent dosing is required has more to do with a significant dose being required, . 350 mg/week, rather than an actual need for it to be injected daily. Unfortunately bodybuilders often make illogical comparisons, and will conclude that daily injections are needed, since a once a week injection of 50 mg did not do the job! Well, of course it didn't: the dose was too low. For a future article, some urinalysis testing may be performed to come up with some more specific information on this matter, since it is of interest to many.
