Characteristics

Stanozolol THP is the same compound as the illegal anabolic steroid stanozolol (Winstrol) except it is not 17aa methylated, and instead has a THP ether attached on the 17b position.

The conversion rate for this compound is very low, expected to be less than 15%. Knowing this, users are better off taking doses in the 150-250mg range. The downfall to this is the high cost.

Stanozolol THP does not aromatize and also has very minimal bloat. It has a moderately potent androgenic activity, giving it a fairly low risk for gyno or negative effects on the libido. However its androgenic effects may pose a problem for users prone to androgenic related hair loss.

Once the Stanozolol THP reaches the stomach, most of the THP-ether is probably removed by the stomach acid to form stanozolol (the non-methylated version). Therefore, topical delivery of this compound is probably not worthwhile.

Overall this compound produces mild gains, but the side-effects are very mild too. Noticeable gains in lean muscle mass and strength are not likely going to be achieved unless doses of at least 200mg/day are used. Stanozolol THP is going to produce very little water retention, therefore it should produce a lean and vascular appearance. Big increases in weight are not likely to happen with this steroid either, so increased blood pressure and painful back pumps should not be a problem.

This compound would work well for cutting cycles and would stack well almost any other steroid depending on the goals.

Characteristics

Methylepitiostanol is a methylated version of the steroid Epitiostanol. It is readily active and does not require conversion. Under the influence of heat methylepitiostanol readily breaks down to 17a-Methyl-androstan-2-en-17b-ol (DMT), a now illegal anabolic steroid.

It does not aromatize, however it is possible that methylepitiostanol may offset estrogen and testosterone from SHBG thus increase the risk of gyno for certain individuals with high SHBG levels. Gyno symptoms from this compound may also be a result of this compounds inability to form a potent androgen such as DHT (to antagonize the effects of estrogen). However, in other cases methylepitiostanol can be used to prevent or reduce gynecomastia from an estrogenic steroid by acting as an aromatase inhibitor to keep estrogen down.

It is a DHT derivative with a fairly moderate androgenic value so the chances of hair loss may be increased in certain sensitive users. Swelling of the prostate may also become an issue. The powerful estrogen suppressing action of this steroid and its 17aa stucture will cause it to negatively influence the cholesterol profile by lowering HDL and increasing LDL. It has also been reported to cause stiff joints, possibly related to its suppressive effect on estrogen levels.

Anecdotal reports of appetite suppression and general fatigue would lead one to believe that the liver stress from this 17aa compound is rather severe. For this reason it is recommended to use a liver protecting supplement prior to and during the use of this steroid.

Methylepitiostanol has a strong anabolic action that will lead to quick gains in lean muscle mass and strength with very little bloat. The gains will appear with minimal fat gain and increased vascularity.

Because methylepitiostanol can negatively affect joint comfort it is recommended to be stacked with an aromatizing or progestational compound. However, it is not recommended to stack this steroid with another 17aa oral.

Characteristics

Furazabol THP is the same compound as the illegal anabolic steroid furazabol except it is not 17aa methylated, and instead has a THP ether attached on the 17b position.

Furazabol does not aromatize and also has very minimal bloat. It has a moderately potent androgenic activity, giving it a fairly low risk for gyno or negative effects on the libido. However its androgenic effects may pose a problem for users prone to androgenic related hair loss.

Once the Furazabol THP reaches the stomach, most of the THP-ether is removed by the stomach acid to form the active Furazabol (the non-methylated version). Therefore, topical delivery of this compound is probably not worthwhile. Furazabol has a similar structure to the illegal anabolic steroid stanozolol (Winstrol). The only difference is the pyrazole ring has been replaced with a furazan ring. There is rumor that this compound has benefits for cholesterol levels. While some evidence proves that it can lower total cholesterol, it should be noted that the decrease in cholesterol is mostly due to a decrease in HDL. Therefore, your LDL/HDL ratio would become worse.

Overall this compound produces mild gains, but the side-effects are very mild too. Noticeable gains in lean muscle mass and strength are likely not going to be achieved unless doses of at least 200mg/day are used. Furazabol is going to produce very little water retention, therefore it should produce a lean and vascular appearance. Big increases in weight are not likely to happen with this steroid either, so increased blood pressure and painful back pumps should not be a problem.

The half-life of this compound is short, so dosages should be taken every few hours to keep blood levels stable. Although furazabol can successfully be used as a standalone it can be stacked with other compounds depending on the users goals.

Characteristics

Halodrol is a 17aa steroid that converts to the steroid oral Turinabol after interaction with 3b-HSD at an estimated rate of about 5%.

Because of this low conversion, doses must be higher than other 17aa pro-steroids. However, it is suspected that Halodrol has decent potency without conversion as good results are seen despite the relatively low conversion to Turinabol. Based on Vida’s data Halodrol appears to be about as potent as testosterone, and significantly less androgenic.

Because of the 4-chloro group, halodrol has no progestational effects, it cannot interact with the aromatase enzyme, and it produces inactive 4-chloro-DHT metabolites. This makes androgenic side-effects such as hair loss, high blood pressure, acne and prostate enlargement less likely. Anecdotal reports would also have us believe that side-effects with this compound are fairly mild.

Although caution would still need to be had, the low androgenic value of this compound would also make it one of the more appropriate anabolic steroids for women wishing increase lean mass yet avoid a deeper voice, increased hair growth, acne and clitoral growth. (Oral Turinabol was actually the preferred steroid for Olympic female athletes in East Germany)

The lack of androgenic potency might be expected to create problems with gyno, however the low SHBG binding affinity has minimal interference with SHBG levels and/or freely circuiting estrogen and testosterone. It does not appear that halodrol has a significant gyno risk.

Because halodrol must be used at such a high dose to see noticeable effects, liver toxicity may become an issue. Therefore it is recommended to use a liver protecting supplement before and during halodrol cycles.

Gains from Halodrol generally take a few weeks to notice, but users can expect solid increases in strength, lean muscle mass, improved vascularity and minimal water retention. This allows some of the gains to be kept after the cycle if good diet and training are continued. Quick dramatic gains in size and strength are not generally noticed with Halodrol.

It is used successfully as a standalone, but would be expected to stack well with most other steroids, except 17aa oral due to liver toxicity concerns.

Characteristics

norDHEA is a non-methylated (non-17aa) pro-steroid. (naturally occurring in trace amounts in humans)

norDHEA can convert to the illegal anabolic steroid nandrolone by converting to norandrostenediol/norandrostenedione, and then to nandrolone. Nandrolone is known to have stronger anabolic effects than testosterone, yet weaker androgenic effects.

norDHEA will aromatize to estrogen less than regular DHEA, but because it is a nor compound it lacks strong androgenic metabolites. For instance, after nandrolone interacts with 5a-reductase, the metabolite dihydronandrolone (DHN) is formed, which is a weaker nor-version of DHT.

Ironically, the lack of estrogen conversion from norDHEA is probably balanced by the lack of androgenic potency and progestational effects, which makes the possibility of bloating and experiencing gyno about as likely as with regular DHEA.

One difference between norDHEA and DHEA that should be considered is the fact that norDHEA will have less androgenic effects, which may pose less risk of androgenic related hair loss and/or acne. This may be a smart choice for some men, and a decent choice for women looking for a moderately anabolic compound without much androgenic effect. (to avoid masculinizing side-effects)

Because of the low bio-availability, high doses must be used to notice gains in lean muscle mass and strength. Even with higher doses, the gains will be mild to moderate. Some bloat should be expected from the estrogenic and progestational effects of the nor-steroids. Because this steroid is non-17aa there should be less concern about it negatively affecting the HDL/LDL ratio.

Like the other DHEA derivatives, norDHEA would be useful in a transdermal application since the enzymes needed for the conversions to more powerful metabolites are concentrated in the skin and absorption through the skin using a good transdermal delivery cream could allow for 5-10x higher absorption than oral.

This compound would stack well with almost any other steroid, except those with progestational activity.
