Using Dianabol DBol When Bodybuilding
Dianabol Dbol (also known as Dianabol or DBol) is a very effective anabolic steroid (taken orally) that was manufactured and released in the 1960’s in the USA by researcher John Ziegler. Because it helped muscle growth among bodybuilders, it was banned by Congress under the Controlled Substances Act. Despite this ban, Dianabol Dbol is available with no prescription in other countries like Mexico and various Asian and East European countries, albeit under different trade names. It can still be found in the USA in underground trading markets.
How Dianabol Works
Dianabol Dbol reacts weakly with androgen receptors but still effects itself through a person’s androgen receptor. The results are a dramatic increase in protein synthesis, glycogenolysis, and muscle strength over a short period of time. There are negative side effects to its use however. Such side effects include gynecomastia (aka.bitch tits), high blood pressure, acne and male pattern baldness. There are instances however, where no side effects from its use have been reported. Dianabol dbol causes severe masculine effects in women as well. Additionally, it is metabolized by aromatase meaning estrogenic effects will appear over time in men. These side effects can be lessened to a certain extent by taking Nolvadex or Clomid. It is also important to note that after using Dianabol dbol over extended periods of time, liver damage can result without appropriate post cycle therapy.
The 17α-methylation of the steroid allows it to pass through the liver with only a small portion of it broken down (hence the potential for liver damage if used over longer periods) allowing it to be effective when taken orally. It also has the effect of decreasing the steroid’s affinity for sex hormone binding globulin, a protein that de-activates steroid molecules and prevents them from further reactions with the body. As a result, Dianabol dbol is significantly more active than an equivalent quantity of testosterone, resulting in a rapid growth of muscle tissue. However, elevated estrogen levels (a result of the aromatization of Dianabol dbol) usually will result in significant water retention, which may not be a desired effect. This gives the appearance of great gains in muscle mass and strength, which only prove to be temporary once Dianabol-dbol is discontinued and the associated water weight diminishes. As a result of the bloat, the steroid is usually taken by bodybuilders only at the start of a “steroid cycle”, to facilitate rapid strength increases and the appearance of great size, while the other components such as testosterone and/or nandrolone build up in the body to be able to support anabolism on their own.
Dianabol As a Tonic
When it first appeared on the market, Dianabol dbol was usually prescribed as a tonic to females by having them take just one a tablet per day. However, once the masculine effects of Dianabol dbol became evident, its administration was quickly stopped.
Dianabol In Bodybuilding
Despite its discontinued use as a tonic, the steroid remained legal until the early 1990s. The United States Congress added steroids to the Controlled Substances Act as an amendment known as the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 1990. This act placed steroids in the same category as amphetamines, methamphetamines, cocaine, and opiates as a “Schedule III” drug and possession of these drugs results in a felony. Contrary to popular belief, steroids were banned by Congress without the support of the FDA, and various other health associations in the U.S.A. Perhaps this is one reason why Dianabol dbol still continues t be used “illegally” today. The anabolic is usually stacked with various other injectables, such as testosterone propionate, enanthate, cypionate, or trenbolone acetate.
Numerous professional athletes and bodybuilders have recently admitted to long-term Dianabol dbol use before the drug was prohibited, including Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sergio Oliva. Other anabolics that are commonly stacked with Dianabol dbol are primarily injectable compounds such as testosterone, trenbolone and nandrolone.
Detection of Dianabol
Dianabol dbol is subject to an enormous transformation by a variety of molecular biological pathways. As a result, it remains in ones body and is detectable for up to 4 days. Recent technological advances have isolated a metabolite in a user’s urine. This metabolite remains for up to 19 days after a single oral dose, while many of the metabolites are unique to Dianabol dbol. The methods for detection in urine involve mass spectrometry.
The Inventor of Dianabol
Ironically, Dr. Ziegler placed several high-level competitive bodybuilders on testosterone for 5 weeks as an experiment. The results were not as expected. Then while watching the 1960 European Championships, he believed that the Russian bodybuilders were taking some sort of muscle enhancer because of their spectacular showings. He then proposed that the American Olympic team be given anabolic steroids. Alternatively, Dianabol was given to two lower level lifters to investigate its effectiveness and safety. They achieved great results and Dianabol was then prescribed to certain weightlifters on the team.
