Oral Turinabol

Oral Turninabol (dehydrochloromethyltestosterone) is also known as Oral Turinabol (OT) or Pro Turinabol.  Turinabol is a derivative of Dianabol that does not promote water retention and estrogenic side effects. Turinabol produces slow but quality gains.

Background

Turinabol was developed in the 1960’s when East German’s were looking for an edge for their Olympic and competitive athletes.  It is currently only obtainable through underground labs.

Steroid Action

This is a slower acting steroid.  When using Turinabol, weight, strength and muscle mass increases will not be overly dramatic; however, they will be of good quality. Turinabol also does not typically create risk for estrogenic side effects, so there is limited water retention or risk for gynecomastia. The user can obtain a hard look to their muscles due to limited water retention.

It is 17-alpha alkylated which means it can be toxic to the liver. Turinabol can also lower the clotting ability of blood.

Negative side effects are rare but can occur from cycles that are too long or high in dosage.  Shutting off of one’s own natural testosterone production and testicular tumors (extremely rare) are both side effects of such extreme cycles.

Technical Data

In studies done on male athletes that were given 10 mg OT/day over six weeks, no negative health effects or side effects were reported. It was also used in low doses to reduce the binding of SHBG to other steroids.(1)  Oral Turinabol was found to have the ability to reduce SHBG and allow testosterone to be more readily used.

There was one case reported where a male experienced negative side effects from 5 years of using Oral Turinabol at a high dosage (2)(3). It was found to be effective at extremely high dosages by those looking to gain strength and mass, yet athletes looking to obtain gains more quickly and more proficiently in their game were very successful with lower doses of Oral Turinabol.  Olympic level male Shot-putters were able to add 2.5-4m to their shot throws, 10-12m on their Discus throw, and 6-10m to their Hammer throws with in four years of training. Female athletes gained even more.  One female athlete improved her throw from under 18m to over 20m (4).

Women experienced increased and more severe and sometimes intolerable side effects than male users.  Although, sometimes the women were taking doses that surpassed the men’s by almost double (5).

User Notes

Recently, Oral-Turinabol has found its way back into the hands of athletes all over the world. It’s the “new” sexy drug that’s actually very old. It was the East German secret weapon when their sports doping program was at it’s height.

O-T, or T-bol as it’s sometimes called, is a very nice strength and mass drug, and since it can’t convert to estrogen, can even be used on a cutting diet. For this reason, it gets my “most versatile oral” award.

Most users do fairly well with doses between 40 and 60 milligrams per day, taken in divided doses.
