Turinabol profile


Turinabol (Oral) (chemical 4-hlorodegidrometiltestosteron.) – Anabolic steroid, which is similar in chemical structure and effects to methandrostenolone. The word “screaming” in the name means that the anabolic agent is administered orally (inside). Unlike methandrostenolone is Turinabol that contains an additional chlorine atom in the fourth carbon atom. The drug first developed by the German pharmaceutical company Jenapharm and patented in 1961.

Synonyms: Turanabol, turamoth, turanabol, Turik, turinabolos, turinover

The steroid profile 

  • Anabolic activity– 180%
  • Androgenic activity- 50%
  • Aromatization (conversion to estrogen) – No
  • The suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-testes – moderately high
  • Toxicity to the liver – moderate
  • A method of receiving – by mouth (tablets)
  • The half-life- 16 hours
  • Detection time – up to 250 days (long-lived metabolites are fat soluble)


To achieve success in the Olympic Games, since the 60s of the last century, Eastern Germany has developed a number of highly effective anabolic steroids, including drug oralturinabol. The developers describe it as a combined version of methandrostenolone and Oxandrolone with moderate anabolic effect (comparable to testosterone) and low incidence of side effects. Creator is Albert Stachowiak.


The preparation can be characterized as Methandrostenolone without effect of fluid retention in the body.

This delayed acting steroid. During the cycle Turinabol weight, power and performance relief progressing very slowly, but the results are better with the words of the athletes. 

Another distinguishing feature of the product – no estrogenic effects (because is not exposed to flavoring, by adding a chlorine atom in the molecule), ie side effects such as fluid accumulation, gynecomastia, etc. almost never occur. Although there are reviews, which reported on the development of gynecomastia, which is the development of the mechanism remains unclear. The most likely reason – the presence in the methyltestosterone , which is related to the synthesis features.

Also, it was determined that the concentration decreases SHBG, thus increasing the level of free testosterone in the blood.  There is evidence that Turinabol reduces the risk of blood clots in blood vessels and heart.


During the preparation of the Olympic Games in an optimal dose was chosen, which caused minimal adverse effektov– 20-40 mg per day, divided into three stages  , but bodybuilders often neglect these figures, bringing the dose to 100-150 mg per day  .

The preparation can be applied both in the recruitment of muscle mass, and drying. Turinabol cycle need not include anti-estrogens and gonadotropin (if not exceeds 6-8 weeks), but PKT carried blockers estrogen receptor ( tamoxifen ). Monokurs Turinabol is one of the easiest and safest in bodybuilding, so it is often recommended to beginners. For the first course is considered to be the optimal dose of 40 mg / day for 6 weeks. This allows you to get impressive results, both in terms of growth of quality muscle mass, as well as in the progress of speed-strength results.

For a set of muscle mass is the best combined cycle Turinabol (20 mg daily) + testosterone enanthate 250 mg per week (or + Sustanon ). The average duration of 6 weeks. First enanthate is canceled, and a week later Turinabol.

Athletes who are not interested in a set of weights and seek to increase speed and endurance (boxers, wrestlers, runners, etc.) recommended a lower dose – 10-20 mg per day. However, it should be noted that in recent years oralturinabol become problematic in terms of anti-doping steroid, as recently discovered (2012), long-lived metabolites are determined in six – eight months. Great contribution to such an incredibly long period of detection made by the latest developments in the field of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry.

It should also be noted that on the black market found a lot of fakes (sometimes with another active principle), so that the results obtained do not always meet the expectations.

Side effects 

chlordehydromethyltestosterone-1Turinabol 17 is alkylated anabolic steroid, which enables oral administration, but creates a toxic effect on the liver, comparable to methandrostenolone. In general, side effects are rare and are most commonly associated with the excess of the cycle duration and high doses. This drug strongly inhibits the secretion of testosterone. Can erectile dysfunction after the cancellation, there have been cases of premature ejaculation.

Violations of the Liver: cholestatic jaundice, necrosis of hepatocytes with liver failure, liver cancer. From the biochemical parameters determined by increased levels of bilirubin, alkaline phosphatase and transaminases. Cholestatic jaundice may occur after 6 months or more (a toxic origin) and manifested stasis in the bile capillaries with hyperbilirubinemia and increased activity of alkaline phosphatase. When applying for several years may increase the frequency of liver cancer.

An official report of a carcinogenic effect was observed for 5 years of use Turinabol in relatively high doses. 

Endocrine disorders: Turanabol less than other drugs in men can cause: inhibition of spermatogenesis and impotence (second decrease the secretion of gonadotropins and testosterone with testicular atrophy and oligospermia); prostatic hypertrophy (mainly in the elderly); epididymitis; priapism. The boys may experience precocious puberty, frequent erections, increase the risk of suspension.

Neurological disorders: agitation, confusion, insomnia, depression.

Metabolic disorders: decreased glucose tolerance; increase the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL); accelerated clearance of creatinine; elevated levels of creatine phosphokinase; swelling relatively rarely observed because of the low delay of sodium and water; delay potassium, calcium and phosphorus. Patients with prolonged bed rest can develop hypercalcemia .

Other : at puberty may prematurely closed epiphyseal bone areas with growth retardation.

In women, the drug can cause rare: decreased secretion of gonadotropins; phenomena virilization (acne, hirsutism, deepening of voice, increase libido , menstrual disorders , hypertrophy of the clitoris, development of muscles). Pregnant women can develop virilization of the female fetus. The frequency of these side effects have Turanabol low.
