Winstrol is hepatotoxic, and because of this, it should be used at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible cycle. What’s more, you should consider using a supplement designed to provide some additional protection. Milk thistle is a highly recommended option; studies suggest it can provide an effective layer of protection when it is used for the entire length of your cycle. There are some other supplements on the market, such as Liver Care, which are blends of natural ingredients that have been shown to work together to prevent liver toxicity.
Winstrol is used by bodybuilders especially in cutting cycles. It does raise the amount of testosterone circulating in the body and it does suppress other natural hormones levels, as well as change cholesterol levels. Most doctors limit its use to 6 weeks, although some people have used it for as long as twelve weeks. There are some reports that Winstrol weakens tendons and other reports say it strengthens them and other say it strengthens them unevenly, which could be an issue. Joint stress has also been reported while using Winstrol. It has become popular among women who want to build muscle mass and not gain fat. Anyone not involved in bodybuilding as a sport has alternatives when it comes to eliminating fat and building muscle mass.
