Dianabol (also known as Methandrostenolone, Metandienone, Methandienone, Reforvit-b, Averbol, Danabol, and Dbol) is one of the most popular anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs among professional sportsmen and those looking for solid muscle mass and lean appearance. This anabolic steroid was developed by Bob Ziegler and is widely used by professional sportsmen, especially muscle builders and professional sportsmen, when it comes to promoting lean appearance and solid muscular development.

The highly anabolic and androgenic steroid offers little progestational activity; it is routinely suggested by doctors to people struggling with conditions demanding improved protein synthesis and brittle bones (osteoporosis).

Use of this legal steroid helps in increasing the level of anaerobic glycolysis that encourages the accumulation of lactic acidity in the human body, which is useful for the muscle tissue to produce glycogen. It is worth noting that glycogen provides energy in anaerobic metabolic rate while lactic acidity is useful in the disposal of dietary carbohydrates that indicates that Dbol users are less likely to get fatty while using it.

Dianabol is aromatized by the entire human body and is a somewhat estrogenic steroid. Dianabol also shows efficiency to improve the levels of total body calcium and total body potassium besides being of great use to treat brittle bones. This implies that this legal steroid is useful to promote muscular development by holding a lot of creatine and amino acids besides helping in muscular contractions, transmitting nerve signals, and release of insulin.

The suggested dosage of Dianabol for men is 50-150 mg per week (when taken in an injectable form) and 25-50 mg per day (when taken in an oral form).

The abuse of Dianabol or its overdosing can lead to health problems such as bouts of oily skin, increased aggression, acne, growth of body and facial hair, male pattern baldness, insomnia, menstrual abnormalities, clitoral hypertrophy, and significant virilization in women.
