Alphabol is an anabolic steroid used orally. Initially, Alphabol was used to accelerate the regeneration and cure of burns, to increase vitality in women, and soon became quite widespread in bodybuilding as a substance for muscle growth, until it was banned. At the moment there is a large amount of information that unfairly discredits Alphabol. Critics exaggerate the influence of toxic characteristics and too underestimate the anabolic activity. And yet, as practice shows, the course of Alphabol, which will last within 5-6 weeks at an average dosage of 30 mg per day, will help you to increase muscle mass by about 8-10 kg, followed by a loss of 2-5 kg (the so-called rollback phenomenon). Kickbacks can be reduced in the case of correct preparation of the course.
Anabolic activity – 200% of testosterone
Androgenic activity – 50% of testosterone
Aromatization (conversion to estrogen) – yes
Liver toxicity – yes
Reception Method – Inward
Duration of exposure – about 6-8 hours
Detection time – not more than 140 days
The main feature of Alphabol is a rather rapid increase in muscle mass, through activation of protein synthesis, glycogenolysis. At the same time, power indices increase. Increases the need for nutrition. Not too much fat is burned. The bone system is strengthened.
Alphabol has a relatively small androgenic effect (50% compared to ordinary testosterone), and yet it takes place.
Studies have shown that the side effects of the drug begin to manifest, as a rule, when the wrong dosage, namely, when exceeding the dose of Alphabol more than 30 mg per day
Side Effects of Alphabol
The problem of gynecomastia occurs after the conversion of the proportion of Alphabol to estrogen – methyestradiol, which has a 30% greater affinity for estrogen receptors. Anti-estrogens are used to prevent this side effect from becoming unpleasant. These substances are almost 100% effective for the prevention of gynecomastia.
Due to the fact that Alphabol has a methyl category in the 17th position, this product produces a relatively small toxic effect on the liver. The methyl group interferes with the destruction of Alphabol in the liver, and allows for oral use of the product (inside). This reduces the binding of Alphabol to the sex hormone-binding globulin. Hepatoprotectors are used.
Methane, as well as any other oral steroid, with long-term use can provoke an increase in the membranes of the hepatic cells, as well as an increase in the negative tendencies of conduction of the biliary tract, which can lead to bile stasis and pain in the right hypochondrium. Usually, doctors recommend using auxiliary medicinal substances while using Alphabol throughout the entire course, such as Essentiale, Kars, Liv-52, allohol or oatsol, to prevent bile stasis and scrub the liver. But, unfortunately, in fact, these substances not only do not help the liver during the course, but also harm it. Choleretic substances are divided into 2 categories: some improve the production of bile – choleretics (allohol, cholesenis), others – cholekinetics, contribute to its output from the gallbladder into the intestinal tract (holosas). Therefore, if you use substances that contribute to the outflow of bile, you just “increase the pressure”, which means that during the course of choleretic, you can only use Holosas! Hepatoprotectors (Essentiale, Kars, etc.) have a membrane-stimulating effect on very sensitive liver cells, which also leads to thickening of the liver wall and bile stasis, which is very difficult to diffuse through the thick membrane. Therefore, it is more optimal to take hepatoprotectors after the end of the course – then it is better to stop the choice on Heptral.
