Dianabol – also known as Dbol, is one of the most popular Steroids known in the fitness industry. It is rumored that this was Arnold Schwarzenegger’s favorite Steroid. Dianabol is most commonly used to bulk up, as it has the ability to pack on massive amounts of strength and weight in a short period. Some individuals have reported gaining up to 20lbs within a 6-8 week course of Dianabol alone. Even better results can be achieved, when this powerful Steroid is stacked with the likes of other potent Injectable Steroids, such as Testosterone Enanthate and Deca Durabolin.
Dianabol is usually dosed at 40-60mg per day for intermediate users and individuals rarely need to ever exceed 60mg per day. Although Dianabol is one of the best Steroids for bulking up, it is not free of side effects. Dianabol does aromatize into estrogen, which means that almost all users will experience some degree of water retention. Gynecomastia is also a possible side effect of Dianabol. However, both water retention and Gynecomastia can be prevented with the use of an aromatase inhibitor, such as Arimidex. Dianabol is also liver toxic, and therefore it should not be used for more than 8 consecutive weeks. It would be prudent to take Dianabol alongside UDCA in an attempt to protect the liver as much as possible. A liver protection compound such as UDCA is not always necessary, but if one desires to be as safe as possible with their Steroid use, it would definitely be a good safety measure.
