Oral Turinabol is an anabolic steroid developed and made famous by scientists in East Germany years ago. Actually, this is more a steroid of infamy actually, as it was one of the closely held secrets inside the "East German Doping Machine" I am referring to a state sponsored doping program, called "State Plan 14.25" that operated in East Germany for a period of time between the 1960's and 80's. It was an aggressive anabolic steroid administration program, designed with one goal in mind: cheating the Olympic drug test. In many cases, the Olympic athletes, both male and female, were unwitting participants, simply told by their trainers and coaches that they were being given "vitamins" Many of these blue vitamins turned out to be Oral Turinabol, a potent and undetectable (at the time) anabolic steroid. As many as 10,000 unsuspecting athletes were given anabolic steroids during the time the program was active. For a more in-depth look at this dramatic historic event, including the trials of several former East German officials for their participation, I recommend you look at the book "Faust's Gold: Inside the East German Doping Machine"by Steven Ungerleider.
OT, as it is called, is a potent derivative of Dianabol. It is structurally a cross between methandrostenolone and clostebol (4-chlorotestosterone), having the same base structure as Dianabol with the added 4-chloro alteration of clostebol. This makes OT a "kinder, gentler Dianabol" the new steroid displaying a much lower level of androgenic activity in comparison to its more famous counterpart. Its anabolic activity of chlorodehydromethyltestosterone is somewhat lower than that of Dianabol as well, but it does maintain a much more favorable balance of anabolic to androgenic effect overall. This means that at any given level of muscle-building activity, OT will be much less likely to produce the classic androgenic side effects such as oily skin, acne, aggression, and male-pattern hair loss (if genetically prone) than would Dianabol.
The 4-chloro attachment used with this steroid also inhibits its ability to be aromatized. Therefore, OT is not going to present its user with unwanted estrogenic side effects like water retention, increased fat deposition, or gynecomastia. While Dianabol tends to produce puffiness and a little fat retention in its users, which hides muscle definition, the exact opposite effect usually happens with OT. OT tends to promote gain in lean tissue mass, accompanied by an increased look of density, hardness, and definition due to the intensified androgen to estrogen ratio. For bodybuilding purposes, this makes OT a great pre-contest or cutting steroid, not really a bulking agent of choice. Athletes in sports where speed tends to be a primary focus would also find favor in OT, obtaining a strong anabolic benefit without having to carry around any extra water or fat weight.
When this drug was available in Western Europe, the typical daily dosages used by men were in the rage of 20mg to 40mg. Women would get by on less, usually a single 5mg tablet.That is, unless you were an East German female Olympic swimmer, in which case you could have been swallowing as many as 30 tablets per day (we can understand why long-term virilizing side effects were reported over and over again in the "doping trails"). When used in the recommended dosing levels, OT definitely proves itself as a potent lean tissue builder. Again, it will provide less overall muscle bulk than Dianabol, but with its lack of estrogen conversion, the gains obtained with OT, even if smaller in total, are visibly of better quality. Although there is a clear relationship between OT and Dianabol when it comes to molecular structure, ultimately it would be much more appropriate to be comparing the activities of this steroid to those of other mild, non-aromatizing anabolics like stanozolol, oxandrolone or methenolone.
Turanabol is indicated in conditions such as chronic infections, extensive surgery, [corticosteroid-induced myopathy, decubitus ulcers, burns] , or severe trauma, which require reversal of catabolic processes or protein-sparing effects. These agents are adjuncts to, and not replacements for, conventional treatment of these disorders.
