Winstrol is commonly known as a cutting drug. It means that the drug is often used for cutting cycles. It is not a very effective compound for treating anemia, but people wouldn’t argue for its use in a bulking cycle. Many people prefer to use Dianabol or Anadrol for cutting cycles, but Winstrol is more effective drug.
Winstrol actually is the drug in which Stanozolol is the key substance. Stanozolol is an anabolic steroid, a testosterone derivative that makes Winstrol like any other common anabolic steroid which helps in increasing strength without any excess body weight gains. One of the plus points of Winstrol is that it doesn’t convert into estrogen. Winstrol was first developed by the Winthrop Laboratories in 1962, and since then, the drug has been coming in two forms oral and injection.
Winstrol is the anabolic steroid that can be ranked equal to Dianabol and Deca Durabolin on the list of anabolic steroids, as far as their effectiveness, and potency is concerned, as it is purely a testosterone derivative, an androgenic hormone produced by the testes which is responsible for the development of the male secondary sex characteristics. Winstrol certainly is one of the most popular bodybuilding anabolic steroids.
Winstrol has many benefits as it can be used in many conditions to cure many diseases in both animals and humans.
