What is Dianabol (commonly called D-Bol)?
Unlike most of the other powerful anabolic androgenic steroids out there, Dianabol (commonly called D-Bol) comes in an oral tablet form rather than injections.
DBol is derived from testosterone and has the chemical name of Methandrostenolone, with Dianabol being the brand name the drug was released under in the late 1950s, initially to provide performance enhancing benefits to American athletes. It was soon taken up by bodybuilders but its production and legal sale in the US was halted in the 1980s and it is now only produced in other countries. It is one of the rare steroids out there which was created purely to enhance athletic performance in humans, therefore Dianabol can be considered a true performance enhancing androgen and anabolic steroid.
The primary areas where Dianabol excels is for mass and strength building. One of the most common uses of Dianabol is as a bulking steroid during the off-season, due to the fact it can deliver rapid and high quality mass building results. It’s also often used at the beginning of a bulking cycle to bring about fast results early on.
The important benefits and effects of Dianabol are:
- Increases mass rapidly
- Boosts power and strength
- Enhances and speeds up muscle recovery
- Reduces fatigue allowing for longer workouts
- Lower androgenic effects than other steroids
- Works well with many other steroids
- Doesn’t require injections
- Recommended Male Dosage: 20-80mg per day
- Minimum cycle length: 4 weeks
- Ideal cycle length: 4 weeks
- Maximum cycle length: 6 weeks
- Recommended Female Dosage: Not recommended for females
Dianabol is recommended to be stacked with a testosterone base as a Dianabol only cycle will shut your natural testosterone production down.
For users looking for extreme results, Dianabol can be stacked with almost any injectable steroid. We would not recommend stacking with another oral because of the increased load on the liver.
Due to its fairly heavy effect on testosterone suppression, we recommend stacking with a testosterone base and using an estrogen blocker or aromatase inhibitor. These products consist of Arimidex, Letrozole, Novaldex and Aromasin.
