Another feature of stanozolol as a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, lies in the ability to reduce SHBG levels (binding globulin to sex hormones).The reduction in SHBG levels results in the release of more free testosterone, which can be used to increase strength, libido and lean body mass. It also leads to a reduction in estrogen levels, thereby limiting side effects. Thus, the excessive water intake will not be a problem during the use of stanozolol, and when taken together with anabolic steroids that cause water retention, it actively helps to reduce this side effect. Due to its high anabolic and low androgenic nature it is preferred by women. Oral Stanozolol is commonly used in the definition stage, or during the caloric deficit, if the goal of the user is to lose body helps to reduce the amount of fat tissue and increase lipolysis and oxidation of fat and, more importantly, helps maintain muscle mass during this time. The calorie deficit can cause the body to go into a state which uses amino acids (muscle) as an energy source, which is unwelcome state if this occurs during the phase of preparation for competition. Preservation of muscle tissue occurs due to the properties of stanozolol in increasing nitrogen retention and protein synthesis in muscle.
