Oral anabolic steroids can be very useful and very effective but due to their general hepatic nature responsible use must be implored. Oral anabolic steroids such as Dianabol and Anadrol can pile mass on your frame faster than just about any steroids on earth and oral anabolic steroids such as Halotestin can increase strength dramatically and faster than most but responsible use is a must. In most cases no oral steroid should be used for more than 6 weeks at a time and with oral steroids like Halotestin due to it being extremely hepatic we must cut this time frame down to 4 weeks max. Remember it is those who do not use responsibly that give anabolic androgenic steroids a bad name, they are the problem and if responsible use is ever to be recognized as legitimate use please for the sake of us all do not let yourself be one of those people.
No steroid is without its drawbacks and that includes oral steroids, which are stressful on your liver, especially with c-17 alpha alkylation ’s which is used to improve absorption of oral steroids. If these chemicals weren’t used the anabolic steroids are often not able to get past the first pass metabolism in the lifer, and therefore the anabolic effects would not be enjoyed. The liver plays a vital role in the body clearing out waste products, and storing important nutrients. On top of the side effects, oral steroids shut down your body’s hormone production. This is why most users will include a steroid, such as, testosterone with the oral steroid, so the body’s testosterone levels are backup.
