Stanozolol also does a very good job of reducing the amount of SHBG in the body, thus allowing other steroids to be much more abundant in their free state in the body. Due to this fact, GP Stan 10 makes a great addition to all cycles. Stanozolol is a C17-alpha alkylated compound, and therefore can be toxic to the liver over time. Because of this, it is recommended that bodybuilders using this compound try to keep dosage in a reasonable range and limit cycle duration to 10wks. There are also several liver protectants and detoxifiers available which should be considered when doing a cycle of this steroid.
The use of Stanozolol will suppress natural testosterone production in all men and should only be used in conjunction with exogenous testosterone. Failure to supplement with exogenous testosterone will put the man into a low testosterone state. The form of testosterone is inconsequential.
Once all Stanozolol use is ended and any and all anabolic steroids have cleared the body natural testosterone production will begin again. It will not occur overnight and it is recommended that a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan follow use. A PCT plan will aid in recovery. A PCT plan will not complete recovery, this will still take several months, but it will speed up the process and increase the odds of a successful recovery.
Important Note: Women do not need to supplement with testosterone during Stanozolol use.
Important Note: Natural testosterone recovery assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) during use and that no prior low testosterone condition existed prior to use.
The oral dosage normally ranges from 20 to 50mg per day. The injectable is often used at 50 to 100mg taken every other day. 21 Gauge needles are recommended because the suspension might block the finer needles while the injection is taking place. The aqua-based injectables are notorious for causing injection pain and even abscesses. For this reason some users resort to drinking the suspension instead, the effects of doing this are exactly the same as taking tablets or capsules orally. Winstrol should be stacked with other steroids for best results.
