Of concern to any user of Winstrol during a cycle should be its intoxicating effect on the liver . The drug is a 17aa structured steroid , meaning it has been structured in a way which allows it to be orally bio-available, yet this has the negative effect of making Winstrol potentially harmful to the liver. It is therefore paramount the duration of a Winstrol cycle is limited, the dose of the drug is not excessive, the user does not stack it with other hepatotoxic compounds, does not drink alcohol whilst on cycle, and does not use Winstrol if they have an underlying medical condition which effects the livers health. There are supplements available which also help protect the liver (Milk Thistle, Liv-52 etc), and these would be advisable during any Winstrol cycle .
Anavar is one of the most popular steroids used in bodybuilding for a number of reasons. Primarily, Anavar is popular among those bodybuilders who want to try and minimize the negative health effects that steroids can exert on the body. Anavar works via DHT (dihydrotestosterone) meaning that it doesn’t directly impact on testosterone and thereby doesn’t have many of the same side effects associated with heightened T. Anavar will not – for example – cause gynecomastia (breast development) which is a very big advantage in the minds of many male athletes! Anavar is also less potent generally when compared to similar steroids. Something like Winstrol for example will work very similarly to Anavar but will have more damaging negative effects on the liver, the heart and endogenous testosterone levels.
