In medicine Oxymetholone was developed and used to help people with anemia and other diseases where weight loss was a concern. This compound is very effective for increasing appetite, gaining weight and strength, also it is increasing red blood cells count. Because of its effects, it is very popular nowadays in bodybuilding and other sports.
This steroid is very popular among bodybuilders and strength athletes, because it can be an alternative for D-bol. Oxymetholone offers the same results as D-bol, some times greater, but with fewer side effects. Usually, athletes report gains in mass up to 5-7 kgs in 2 weeks that are not uncommon for this steroid.
Unfortunately, Oxymetholone is at the same time the most harmful oral steroid, it is very toxic to liver because it is 17-alpha-alkylated. Also this steroid easily converts into estrogen, causes signs of feminization and water retention. That’s why it is required to take anti estrogens and diuretics.
