What Is Nandrolone?
Nandrolone is a type of anabolic steroid. Anabolic steroids include testosterone and lab-grown (synthetic) forms of testosterone. Doctors prescribe anabolic steroids, including nandrolone,
Some athletes — professionals as well as everyday athletes and even adolescents — misuse steroids like nandrolone to build muscle and boost performance.
But studies show that overuse or misuse of nandrolone or any other anabolic steroid could be bad or dangerous for your health. That’s why it’s so important to use the drug only by prescription and under a doctor’s care.
Masteron (Drostanolone) was brought to market around 1972 by Syntex Pharmaceuticals, the same company that brought Anadrol to market just a few years earlier. The medical objective was to help control breast cancer in females using its mild anti-estrogen properties. As the years went on companies have depended on SERM’s like Nolvadex for this purpose since they have much lower side effects, and Masteron has fallen out of favor in the medical community1.
Even though it was around in the golden era, it never got in the hands of many bodybuilders to their dismay. In those days before the internet, people depended on word of mouth and gurus to guide them so information was extremely outdated. Had they known about Masteron in that time period it would have been likely the #1 steroid to use.
Over the years it has grown in popularity and over the past 30 years, it has become a staple to use in a contest prep cycle to give the bodybuilder hard muscles on stage.
What is stanozolol?
Stanozolol (brand names: Winstrol®, Menabol®, Neurabol®, Stanol®, Stromba®, Stombaject®) is an anabolic steroid previously used to treat poor appetite, anemia, and other health issues. Studies are limited however, and use is uncommon as it is no longer marketed in the United States. A newer study shows it may be effective in treating tracheal collapse in dogs. It is used in pet animals only; it is not used in farmed animals. This medication is considered a controlled substance.
Although the commercially produced form was FDA approved in dogs, cats, and horses, its current use as a compounded medication in dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, ferrets, rabbits, and other small mammals to treat weight loss, anemia, poor appetite, and other issues is ‘off label’ or ‘extra label’. Many drugs are commonly prescribed for off label use in veterinary medicine. In these instances, follow your veterinarian’s directions and cautions very carefully as their directions may be significantly different from those on the label.
