The steroid is a synthetic chemical derivative of the testosterone hormone present in the body. This testosterone is required mainly in the development of secondary sex characters and during foetal formation and in the developmentof puberty inyoung males. The use of steroid does not lead to the bulking up of the muscles rather it needs to be a coupled with an increase in food intake and exercises for good result. Of this group, the most commonly used steroids by people of the athletic community are Dianabol and Anadrol. Though both of the drugs are anabolic steroids and the best among the two, has been a subject of debate for decades.
Dianabol is a drug which had been developed during the “golden era of steroid” and has been present in the market for decades. It is a synthetic derivative of the natural hormone testosterone and has been known as Methandrostenolone or methandienone (metadienone). It has been present in the market from 1950’s and is essentially a performance enhancing drug that allows the user an edge over its competition. Many reviews on the steroid reveals that the use of this over a four week in a cycle of 8-12 weeks leads to significant weight increase. It has been observed to increase in the weight of people by almost 20% of body weight. Indeed the use of this anabolic should be done carefully to prevent any harmful effects.
The active ingredient of Anadrol is chemically known as the Oxandrolone. It like Dianabol has been on the market for decades after the introduction of it in 1960’s. It leads to increase in the weight gain with the added advantage of theincrease in the number of red blood cells in the body. Due to this reason, this anabolic has been used in the treatment of anemia. The catch is that the two steroids both have similar androgenic property and can lead to increase in the body weight when coupled with an increase in food consumption and exercise.
