"Steroid" is the name given to a chemical compound with a specific structure. In everyday speech, the term steroid is applied to several medications that share this structure; however, these medications have very different uses. Anabolic steroids are a class of drug that mimic the effects of male sex hormones called androgens which stimulate muscle growth and secondary male sex characteristics. They are often abused by bodybuilders and other athletes to build muscle mass and so should be used with caution. When prescribed, oral steroids should be taken as directed. If you come across extra pills that haven't been taken, and are unsure if they are steroids, you can identify the pill based on its physical appearance, information on the bottle, or by consulting a professional.
It is often said injectable Winstrol is far more powerful than its oral counterpart, and based on the increased enhancement of nitrogen retention this would support such a belief; however, it's not as cut and dry as you might think. Yes, injecting Stanozolol will increase nitrogen retention beyond what the oral tablet can; however, this increased enhancement is not that significant over the oral form; you can truly obtain the same results with either one. Another myth that often plagues injectable Winstrol surrounds its structural nature, most understand the oral tablet is a C17-aa steroid and assume the injectable form does not carry this hepatotoxic nature; they would be incorrect. Injectable Winstrol is one of the few injectable steroids that is a C17-aa anabolic steroid, and while its hepatotoxic nature is not quite as strong as the oral tablet it is still rather high; in-fact, both forms of Winstrol are some of the most hepatotoxic steroids on the market.
