Winstrol or Stanozolol is an anabolic steroid used to get lean and hard, it's mainly used as an oral during cutting cycles to lose body fat. It's as variant of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), so you can expect similar fat loss benefits as you would with any other DHT derivative steroid. It has the ability to decrease the level of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and increase the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL), that's something all steroid users can benefit from.
Winstrol has a unique ability to lower the amount of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), more than any other steroid on the market. SHBG is a hormone that binds to other steroids in your cycle making them useless; in simple terms, it makes taking too much steroids useless as it neutralizes them. However, stanozolol allows you to stack multiple steroids in your cycle without the need to lower your dosages. An interesting stack would be winstrol and proviron, allowing for maximum SHBG reduction and maximizing cycle effectiveness.
Basically, you can either take your winstrol orally or you can inject it, that's up to you. In terms of dosages, for men the optimal dose is 40-100mgs per day, and for women it's around 5-15mgs per day. The higher end of the dosages for women is around 20mgs per day but it's only recommended for female bodybuilders and fitness competitors. Also, the dose is the same whether you take it orally or inject it, so don't worry about doing either.
The most common side effect is dry joints aka your joints are painful, so you need to take some joint supplements. Winstrol is usually complimented well by a combination of glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, calcium and collagen/vitamin C. If you take joint support formulas with those ingredients, you should remedy most of your joint problems. The next issue is liver problems, which are common for all oral steroids (even injectable to some degree); therefore, you should take N2Guard to make sure your liver is protected. N2Guard does a great job at protecting your liver, kidneys, heart and overall health during a winstrol cycle.
