Turinabol is a Testosterone-derived anabolic androgenic steroid commonly known as AAS. The steroid is known by other names such as CMDT, DHMCT and 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone. It is among the few steroids that is taken orally as most other types are introduced into the body through injection means.
It was originally developed by doctors to assist patients with mass wasting diseases to gain more mass and also to facilitate bone strength, in the 1960s. In addition, the steroid was also used to enhance the performance of about 10,000 athletes of East Germany in a span of twenty years.
Chemical Characteristics Of Turinabol And How It Works
Turina-bol is a combination of chemical structures of Dianabol and Clostebol also known as Methandrostenolone. Even though Turinabol and Dianabol have similar chemical structures, Turinabol has a much milder characteristic as compared to Dianabol.
Combination of the two chemicals has a resulting effect of reducing Turinabol’s overall androgenic strength, but risk reduction of transformation of the chemical structure into oestrogen, thus prevetion of Gynecomastia, often called man boobs’.
Due to this reduction in androgenic strength, Turinabol has an anabolic rating of 54 and an even lower androgenic rating of 6. Moreover, Turinabol’s chemical structure’s ingenuity enable it to have a 16 hour half life, and the ability to bind to Sex hormone binding globulin, also known as SHBG 1 .
Due its disparity in its anabolic and androgenic capabilities, Turinabol is a weaker Steroid as compared to Dianabol. It is due to this that Turinabol requires higher dosage amounts to be induced for it to produce essential progressive results.
It is usually used in higher amounts by body builders and athletes who are trying to accumulate muscle mass, as one can take even up to 80mg of Turinabol a day.
However, for bodybuilders who are burning fat so as to be cut’, the recommended dosage is 40mg daily. For female partakers of Turina-bol, the dosage is usually much lower.
This is due to the fact that lower amounts for female users will result in reduction of virilism, which is the development of male physical characteristics.
These characteristics include:
A deeper voice than usual
Irregular and disrupted menstrual cycles
unusual hair growth on the body and on the face
It is common standard practice to use a 6-8 week cycle while using Turinabol. In the case of athletes using higher dosages, one should deploy an even shorter cycle, so as to prevent the risk of side effects being adverse.
Side Effects Of Turinabol
Due to its mild androgenic qualities, affects oestrogen levels for men.
Therefore this results in various side effects such as:
Low sperm count
Increased liver stress
Testosterone production becomes more suppressed
Increased hair growth in the body
Increased cholesterol levels in the body.
One thing to note is that these side effects are not guaranteed to happen to everyone, as everyone reacts differently to Turina-bol steroid.
Turina-bol is an illegal substance in many countries in the world such as the U.S Canada and the UK. However, it can still be found online, although at very high prices due to its illegality.
