Winstrol - Super Drug or Super Crazy?

We should point out that there are really two forms of Stanozolol available, oral and Injectable (called Depot). The injectable version of the drug is considered safer and more effective than the oral version. Unlike other injectable steroids, however, Depot has to be injected more frequently as it's dissolved in water. Oil-based injectables tend to last longer in the body, which means fewer injections are needed. Another reason why injectable winny is preferred over oral is that it doesn't easily convert (called aromatization) into estrogen hormones. Not only does this reduce the chances of developing gynecomastia (swelling of the breast tissue in men), but also water retention is kept to a minimum. This last characteristic makes Winny popular as a precontest bodybuilding drug (Stanozolol is also used during the off-season as it does produce good muscle gains).

The risks
Like all oral steroids oral Winstrol has been modified at its 17th carbon position to help it survive passage through the digestive system and liver. Ironically it's this chemical tweaking that makes the drug more damaging to the liver. For those who do decide to use oral Winny tablets, we strongly urge you to have a physician keep a close eye on your liver enzyme values with regular blood tests.
Even though it's less common, the possibility of developing liver problems cannot be excluded from the injectable versions of the drug. While it does not enter the body through the liver, it still travels through it with each pass through the circulatory system. So over time there is a lower level of stress.
It should also be noted that both versions of Winny have been linked to significant changes in cholesterol levels. This negative effect is common with steroids in general - even medical therapy - so it can become a health concern if the individual stays on the drug for extended periods of time. Since the oral version will probably have a greater effect on cholesterol levels than the injectable form because of both the method of administration and chemical modification, individuals should try to limit its use.
Think twice!
As you can see Stanozolol is not some super wonder bodybuilding drug that is risk free. In fact the risks are significant and you should definitely think twice before you fall victim to its allure. With all the risks associated with Winstrol and other anabolic steroids, bodybuilders
 should check out the various steroid alternatives that are available. Bodybuilders are reporting that many of these products are just as powerful and just as effective at promoting fat loss as their illegal and potentially dangerous cousins.
