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 .
Winstrol produces a lean, quality look to the physique with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention. This makes it a favorable steroid to use during cutting cycles, when water and fat retention are a major concern. It is also very popular among athletes in combination strength/speed sports such as Track and Field. In such disciplines one usually does not want to carry around excess water weight, and may therefore find the raw muscle-growth brought about by Winstrol quite favorable over the lower quality mass gains of more estrogenic agents.
It is often said injectable Winstrol is far more powerful than its oral counterpart, and based on the increased enhancement of nitrogen retention this would support such a belief; however, it's not as cut and dry as you might think. Yes, injecting Stanozolol will increase nitrogen retention beyond what the oral tablet can; however, this increased enhancement is not that significant over the oral form; you can truly obtain the same results with either one. Another myth that often plagues injectable Winstrol surrounds its structural nature, most understand the oral tablet is a C17-aa steroid and assume the injectable form does not carry this hepatotoxic nature; they would be incorrect. Injectable Winstrol is one of the few injectable steroids that is a C17-aa anabolic steroid, and while its hepatotoxic nature is not quite as strong as the oral tablet it is still rather high; in-fact, both forms of Winstrol are some of the most hepatotoxic steroids on the market.
