There are several different forms of steroid medicines. Those in this category are the tablet form, taken by mouth, called oral steroids.
Oxymetholone, sold under the brand names Anadrol and Anapolon among others, is an androgen and anabolic steroid (AAS) medication which is used primarily in the treatment of anemia. It is also used to treat osteoporosis, HIV/AIDS wasting syndrome, and to promote weight gain and muscle growth. Oxymetholone was first described in 1959 and was introduced for medical use by 1961. It is used mostly in the United States. In addition to its medical use, oxymetholone is used to improve physique and performance.
Oxandrolone, sold under the brand names Oxandrin and Anavar, among others, is an androgen and anabolic steroid (AAS) medication which is used to help promote weight gain in various situations, to help offset protein catabolism.
Bodybuilders and athletes use oxandrolone for its muscle-building effects. It is much more anabolic than androgenic, so women and those seeking less intense steroid regimens use it particularly often. Many also value oxandrolone's low hepatotoxicity relative to most other orally active AAS.
Methandrostenolone (trade names Averbol, Dianabol, Danabol), also known as metandienone (or methandienone, is an orally-effective anabolic steroid originally developed in Germany and released in the US in the early 1960s by Ciba Specialty Chemicals. Methandrostenolone is a controlled substance in the US and Western Europe, but remains popular among bodybuilders.
Halotestin, is one of the most powerful anabolic-androgenic steroids out there. In the world of performance enhancement, Halotestin holds a reputation of being one of the most powerful and fast acting steroids on the market.Like the others, it is a derivative of the steroid testosterone. Its primary function is not as a performance enhancing drug but as a testosterone replacement for those experience growth problems.
The most famous of all formulations for methyl test is Metandren by Ciba. Methyltest made by Ciba was an oral form of methyl test, but they changed the game by formulating it in a sublingual formulation. This means that rather than swallowing the substance whole, the user would take the substance in their mouth, leave it under their tongue, and wait for it to be completely absorbed. This was a game-changing formulation because they noticed that the bioavailability of the test was dramatically higher.
During the early 1960’s Schering AG in Berlin put Primobolan on the market in the form of various substances. On the one hand, this is a methenolone acetate and, on the other hand, it is a methenolone enanthate (see Primabolan Injectable).
Primobolan tabs is an almost pure anabolic with an extremely low androgenic component. The ratio of the anabolic to the androgenic effect is indeed very favorable. But the overall anabolic effect is only moderately strong. Primobolan tablets has a limited effect in building up muscle mass and strength. With Primobolan neither fast weight gains nor explosive strength gains occur. Primobolan is therefore mostly taken over a prolonged period since it gives only a slow but also a high-quality muscle gain which mostly remains after use of the compound is discontinued.
Make no mistake about it – Superdrol is 100% and anabolic steroid, though it is one of the most truly unique anabolic steroid options out there for a variety of different reasons.
Produced by a company known as Anabolic Extreme, this steroid was never placed on the controlled substance list in the United States. Hitting the market in 2005 (and carried by almost every single major supplement company and fitness center), Superdrol has enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in helping serious athletes transform their barter a lot faster than they ever would have thought possible before.
Unfortunately, due to a lot of pressure from the FDA, Superdrol was scheduled to be discontinued by the end of 2012. Over-the-counter usage was suspended in 2008 pending the reclassification of Superdrol, and by the time that the middle of 2012 rolled around this steroid was also placed on the controlled substance list and given a Schedule III classification.
Turinabol (Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, also known as ‘Tbol’ and Oral Turinabol) is actually a modified form of Dianabol (Methandrostenolone), whereby it is actually a combination of the chemical structures of Dianabol and Clostebol (4-chlorotestosterone). Hence this is why the actual chemical name is 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone. The modifications to its chemical structure allow it to be non-aromatizable and to also possess a very low androgenic rating, which is likely why Turinabol has been nicknamed as a ‘mild Dianabol’.
Winstrol also refered to as Stanozolol or Winny is a 17alpha-alkylated anabolic androgenic steroid. It is one of the most used performance enhancers amongst athletes. It was first released on the market in the 1960s. Stanozolol was designed to help treat multiple diseases such as osteoporosis.
