Magnum Oxymeth 50 or Oxymetholone (other trade names Anadrol, A50, Anadrol, Oxydex, Oxy-anabolic, etc.) – androgenic-anabolic steroid (AAS) of synthetic origin. One of the strongest pharmacological drugs that athletes of various sports have been using for more than half a century. Steroid is great for gaining muscle mass.
Oxymeth 50 Effects
- Pronounced muscle growth (Oxymetholone is considered one of the most effective steroids in bodybuilding for gaining muscle mass – up to 15 kg of muscle mass for the 1st cycle, after the cycle there is a noticeable recoil phenomenon – up to 30% of the gained mass can be lost, given that some weight gain is due to fluid accumulation)
- Significant increase in strength
- Oxymetholone eliminates joint pain, improves their function (due to fluid retention and greater production of synovial fluid)
- Reduces sex hormone binding globulin – this makes the effect of other hormones when used in combination more pronounced
The main side effect of Oxymetholone is a strong accumulation of water, and, as a result, an increase in pressure. Also, there are frequent side effects such as hostility, irritability (similar to PMS in women). Oxymetholone may cause a decrease in appetite and even nausea. When you take this steroid, your testosterone production is greatly suppressed. Another oxymeth 50 property is to reduce the sensitivity of cells to insulin, and it is not recommended to use for people prone to diabetes.
Also, we must not forget that the Oxymetholone 17-a is alkylated and, therefore, toxic to the liver. Therefore, if you use Oxymetholone in significant dosages or your cycle lasts longer than 8 weeks, special therapy is necessary to keep your liver in good shape.
Oxymeth 50 is available in the form of tablets, at a dosage of 50 mg.
As a rule, dosages from 50 to 200 mg per day are used, divided into 2-3 doses (half-life from 7 to 15 hours).
Surprisingly, the therapeutic dosage of Oxymeth 50 is much higher than sports and is 1-5 mg per pound of weight per day! When following this recommendation, an athlete weighing 100 kg should take up to 500 mg of this anabolic (10 tablets!) Per day. But so much even the most ferocious “chemists” never accept. There is evidence that when using dosages of 300 mg / day or more, water accumulates much less and the drug shows the qualities of a strong fat burner. However, such dosages should be treated with caution, and there are much more suitable for drying drugs.
Women should limit their intake of 50 mg of Oxymeth 50 per day. And do not exceed the duration of the cycle of 8 weeks.
