Anadrol steroids have another use outside of off-season growth that can be very beneficial; we're referring to supplementation for competitive bodybuilders right before a competition. Such supplementation will allow the bodybuilder to maximize his carb loading plan, resulting in a fuller appearance on stage, and one that is far more pleasing in a competitive sense. For this purpose, most will only need to supplement for 2-3 weeks prior to competition right into their carb loading phase; however, this practice comes with a few strong notes of caution. First and foremost, if you've never supplemented with Anadrol steroids this is not something you'll want to try; your first go should always be in the off-season. If you've never supplemented with Anadrol steroids before, you have no way of knowing what your overall reaction to the steroid will be, and if you have a hard time controlling water with this steroid the last thing you want is this steroid in your system right before you step on stage. Further, you should have a solid grasp on water control in a general competitive sense before you try such supplementation; if you do, and you've supplemented successfully before you may find Anadrol steroids very useful for this purpose.
Oxandrolone is most certainly a hepatotoxic steroid. It does not carry the strongest level of hepatotoxicity among anabolic steroids, but it is stronger than most. This is due to it being a C17-aa anabolic steroid. All C17-aa steroids are hepatic, but the level of toxicity varies greatly between them. Due to this steroid’s strong hepatotoxicity, this is why total use must be limited (see administration section).
Due to use, those who supplement with Anadrol will find their liver enzyme values increase. An increase in values is not a sign of damage but rather a sign of stress that can lead to damage if responsible practices are not followed and the stress is allowed to remain. Proper dosing and duration of use protocols are imperative when it comes to this steroid. Further, it is important the individual avoids excess alcohol consumption when supplementing with this steroid due to the liver stress such consumption will cause. In fact, most will find avoiding all alcohol to be best during use. If this is a problem and you are supplementing for the purpose of performance enhancement remember there is nothing on earth that is as anti-performance as alcohol. Those who supplement are also encouraged to limit their use of Over the Counter (OTC) medications. Many OTC medications carry strong hepatic natures, and the added stress can be extensive when coupled with Anadrol. Use should be limited to when only absolutely needed. If these rules can be followed, once use is discontinued liver enzyme values will return to normal and no damage will be done. As a final note, Anadrol should not be used if the liver is unhealthy.
