Introduction to Halodrol
Halodrol is a nutritional supplement classified as a steroid. It is manufactured by the Gaspari Nutrition, a company founded by the International Federation of Body Building and Fitness Hall of Fame.
It is an anabolic androgenic steroid that comes as a derivative of testosterone. It is primarily marketed to men who are looking for improved muscle mass, more sculpted muscles, and reduced water retention, which lowers the chances of bloating.
The drug is not recommended for women, although it is still sold to women who are in the bodybuilding profession. It is not a prescription drug and can be bought over the counter.
Halodrol was initially a prohormone which was sold in the year 2005. Most prohormones such as Halodrol are no longer available in the market, although there are alternatives that have been introduced in the market to serve the same purpose. Halodrol has an anabolic to androgenic ratio of 74:28. This is a very well balanced ratio that guarantees the user real results. The uniqueness of the compound has seen its demand rise to an undeniable level, especially because, if the dosage is followed strictly and keenly, the drug exhibits little to no side effects at all. Unfortunately, the strongest version of Halodrol is no longer available, and all the other potent prohormones were also banned in the past years.
The recommended dosage for Halodrol is 50mg per day. Some people exceed the dosage up to 100mg, which increases the risk of severe side effects. A typical Halodrol cycle should last for about 4 to 6 weeks since the substance has been proven to be very toxic to the liver if used for a prolonged time. During this period, the liver is subjected to a lot of stress. This is why it is advisable to use a cycle support product when using any type of steroid or prohormone. It is also common knowledge that the effects of any supplement or steroid can always be made better if the user includes regular exercises in their routine and a healthy diet.
Benefits of Halodrol
Halodrol increases strength, especially during workouts, which will improve the muscle mass buildup of the user.
- The steroid also improves vascularity, which in turn leads to dry gains or no water retention.
- The effects of the drug are consistent and starker as compared to other anabolic steroids in the same category.
- The drug is also very useful if taken right before competitions and contests as it enhances performance.
- The drug also improves mass buildup without increasing fat deposits.
- It is also quite useful if taken before cutting and bulking cycles.
It also improves recovery of the muscles such that, muscles tend to heal faster after exercise or workout related injuries.
The endurance of the muscles is also increased by Halodrol, paying extra attention to abdominal muscles.
Halodrol can also be stacked with other versions of steroids, but this should be done with extra caution and close observation of a professional medical practitioner because such an interaction can lead to very severe side effects or sometimes irreversible damage. The drug is also known for increasing the testosterone levels in the blood system.
In the process of increasing the shape and size of the muscles, the muscle fibers will also be increased and strengthened.
The blood flow during and after workout sessions is also enhanced by the drug, which will lead to more pronounced and aggressive veins.
Other benefits include increasing the red blood cells count, improving oxygenation of the blood, increased endurance by decreasing the lactic acid buildup, facilitation of better delivery of nutrients to the muscles and improving glycogen restoration and retention in the muscles. This whole process is what enhances quicker healing of the muscle tissues after a workout-related injury.
Side effects of Halodrol
The effects that Halodrol has on the body will be noticed after three to four weeks of using the drug. In the first and second week, the user will not notice much change, maybe just an increased surge of power and endurance. The drug is for oral use only and is metabolized by the liver. Remember, I mentioned that the liver is subjected to a lot of stress during these cycles? This is one of the reasons why steroid should not be abused. One of the most life-risking side effects is liver related problems such as hepatotoxicity.
Halodrol also has protective properties against gynecomastia, water retention, and weight gain but these benefits are also associated with some mild side effects such as excess oil secretion by the user’s skin, which will lead to the appearance of pimples on the skin. The user might also notice some unnatural hair growth on the face and all over the body plus a gradual thinning or total loss of hair. The hair loss or baldness is, however, not permanent and the user should get back their original hair after completion of the cycle.
Some individuals are subject to genetic balding or might have already started experiencing hair loss before beginning the cycle. Unfortunately, there is nothing that can be done to stop this, and such kind of hair will not grow back even after the completion of the cycle.
The composition or ingredients of Halodrol
Halodrol is classified as an anabolic steroid with amyotrophic and repartitioning agents because it contains a steroid composition similar to that of Oral-Turinabol, a substance used in secret during the sports doping program in East Germany. It also contains Desoxymethyltestosterone (madol) a steroid that was allegedly developed for athletes as a performance enhancer.
Hepatotoxicity is linked to the use of anabolic hydrogenic steroids, including cholesterol problems and liver injury. Other cited problems include heart diseases, depression, increased aggression, acne, and stunted height. The reason why this product is not recommended for use by women is that it interrupts the menstrual cycle and causes excessive hair growth, a deeper voice, massive shoulders, and male secondary sex characteristics. Halodrol is also linked to high rates of miscarriages. The product website suggests that use of the product should not exceed 30 days, with at least a 90-days break.
The purpose of Halodrol in the body
Looking at the purposes of Halodrol in bodybuilding and athletic professions, the product increases the testosterone levels which induce a significant increase in the overall body size, largely because of its ability to increase the size of the muscle fibers. The most common physical effect of the drug is greater size and strength of the muscles, increased vascularity, and more aggressive muscular pumps. These benefits alone are not what makes Halodrol a formidable steroid but it also encompasses other traditional steroid properties e.g. increased production of the red blood cells, enhanced endurance during workout sessions through a better clearing of the lactic acid from the body, better delivery of oxygen and nutrients to all the working muscles in the body for better endurance, better restoration of glycogen after exercise which facilitates a quicker recovery of the muscle tissues after exercise-related injuries, and inhibition of muscle destruction.
Gaspari Nutrition Company has provided only one price for a bottle of Halodrol, containing one month’s supply of the drug. The bottle goes for $59.99 on their official website. Interested buyers are however invited for offers and discounts which come with the purchase of more Halodrol from the website.
Post Cycle Therapy for Halodrol
Halodrol produces zero aromatization, which means that the user cannot be totally free from some side effects, especially those that are exhibited by increased estrogen estradiol, prolactin, and progesterone. These effects generally have something to do with water retention, fat gain, and gynecomastia. For this reason, there is a need for post cycle therapy before you begin a cycle of the drug. This is because some of these possible effects on an individual should be addressed before the commencement of a cycle so that you can prevent the possibility of adverse effects of the drug. A post cycle therapy has to be personalized depending on the type of steroid taken during a workout phase, and there should be a recorded duration stating the last day the steroid was taken and the first day of the cycle therapy.
Synthetic testosterone boosters and other steroids, including Halodrol, will suppress or completely shut down the natural production of these hormones. 100mg of these products will take a maximum of 5 to 7 weeks to completely shut down these systems where the user will become completely dependent on these steroids. On the other hand, although the recommended dosages of Halodrol are not hydrogenic enough to promote this shutdown, it will still suppress the production of testosterone.
