    Strength: 20 mg/tab
    Generic Name - Tadalafil

    Cialis' approved indication is as a treatment for men with erectile dysfunction. This is when a man cannot get, or keep a hard, erect penis suitable for sexual activity.
    Tadalafil is an inhibitor of phosphodiesterase type 5, and is currently undergoing regulatory review in the US and in Europe. Its chemical structure is significantly different from sildenafil, and in vitro studies confirm significant potency for PDE5 inhibition, with little activity against most of the other isoforms of the enzyme including PDE6, which is the isoform of the enzyme found within the retina. The half-life of tadalafil is 17.5 hours and clinical studies suggest significant activity 24 hours post-dosing. As with sildenafil, efficacy depends upon a normal sexual stimulus, and the drug can taken be as required. Tadalafil is effective in the treatment of men with erectile dysfunction, and it appears to have a relatively mild side-effect profile, with no visual side-effects noted.

      Remark: The substance Clenbuterol hydrochloride is also available in various other forms of administration, including syrups, drops, liquids, dosing aerosols, injectable solutions, and granules. Since athletes usually prefer tablets, manufacturers and trade names- offering this oral version are listed.
      Clenbuterol is a very interesting and remarkable compound. It is not a steroid hormone but a beta-2-symphatomimetic. Clenbuterol, above all, has a strong anticatabolic effect, which means it decreases the rate at which protein is reduced in the muscle cell, consequently causing an enlargement of muscle cells. For this reason, numerous athletes use Clenbuterol after steroid treatment to balance the resulting catabolic phase and thus obtain maximum strength and muscle mass. A fur-ther aspect of Clenbuterol is its distinct fat-burning effect. Clenbuterol burns fat without dieting because it increases the body temperature slightly, forcing the body to burn fat for this process. Due to the higher body temperature Clenbuterol magnifies the effect of anabolic/androgenic steroids taken simulta-neously, since the protein processing is increased.
      Athletes usually take 5-7 tablets, 100-140 mcg per day For women 80-100 mcg//day are usually suffi-cient, It is important that the athlete begin by taking only one tablet on the first day and then increasing the dosage by one tablet each of the following days until the desired maximum dosage is reached. The compound is usually taken over a period of 8-10 weeks. Since Clenbuterol is not a hormone compound it has no side effects typical of anabolic steroids. For this reason it is also liked by women. Possible side effects of Clenbuterol include restlessness, palpitations, tremor (involuntary trembling of fingers), headache, increased per-spiration, insomnia, possible muscle spasms, increased blood pres-sure, and nausea. Note that these side effects are of a temporary nature and usually subside after 8-10 days, despite continuation of the product. In the meantime, Clenbuterol is well distributed on the black market and costs between $0.70 and $1.20 per 0.02 mg tab

        Catapres is an antihypertensive drug. In school medicine it is used to reduce high blood pressure. High blood pressure caused by ste-roids can be lowered by taking Catapres. Athletes became interested in this drug when medical research reported that Catapres stimu-lates the endogenous production of the growth hormones. It should also be taken before going to sleep at night and in the morning immediately after getting up. Some athletes take a 0.3 mg tablet at night and a 0. 15 mg tablet on an empty stomach immediately after waking up in the morning. The nightly dose increases the concen-tration of growth hormones for several hours, which then again can be increased by taking the morning dose. The achieved serum concentration is significantly above the normal value so that Catapres does have a considerable anabolic effect. Athletes, however, rarely use it since it has several undesirable side effects such as lethargy, fatigue, dry mouth, potency disturbances, and vertigo. Those who have a low blood pressure and a low heart rate should be extremely careful when using it. One hundred tablets are available for approx. $60 on the black market.

          Danocrine is an antigonadotropin. Danocrine from the substance Danazol, has a couple of popular trade names: Danatrol, Winobanin, Anargil, and Mastodanatrol. Danocrine has no anabolic effect and a slight androgenic effect. Often times it is used to treat hormone related disorders such as gynecomastia. Bodybuilders have been known to use a daily dose of around 400mg per day. Because it isn't a very popular product it is tough to find on the black market. It ranges in price, for 100 capsules of 200mg each you can be expected to pay anywhere from $330-$390.
          Possible side effects: (depending on the dose of course) hot flashes, perspiration, increased libido, increased liver values, and high blood pressure.

            Substance: nandrolone undecanoate
            Trade Names:
            Dynabolon 80.5 mg/ml; Farmasister I
            Dynabolon 80.5 mg/ml; Crinos I
            Dynabolon 80.5 mg/ml; Theramex FR
            Psychobolan (o.c.) 80.5 mg/ml; Theramex GR

            Along with Anadur, Deca-Durabolin, and Durabolin, this is an-other steroid containing the substance nandrolone. Dynabolon is a favorite among athletes since it brings good results with few side effects. Although it is often compared to "Deca", its effect is mg per mg comparable or slightly less. The reason is that Dynabolon is slightly androgenic with an anabolic effect, thus it strongly promotes the protein synthesis. The increased androgenic com-ponent helps the athlete achieve a good strength increase and an accelerated regeneration. Those who have had good results with Deca will usually respond even better to Dynabolon. Athletes re-port a distinct, quickly effective, solid gain in muscles, which goes hand in hand with a significant gain in strength. The in-crease in body weight and the improved strength are the result of the water retention in tissues and joints. Dynabolon does not strongly aromatize in dosages below 4 ml/week. Dynabolon is effective for 1-2 weeks, thus requiring more frequent injections than Deca. Bodybuilders who work with this compound usually inject it twice a week. The minimum dosage is 2ml/week. A weekly dosage of 4 ml (equal to 322 mg) is usually sufficient for most athletes to achieve satisfactory results. This requires the injection of 2 ml (equal to 161 mg or 2 ampules) twice weekly. Higher dosages would certainly bring even better gains but often go hand in hand with distinct water retention. Such dosages also aromatize so strongly that antiestrogens must be taken to main-tain the quality of the muscles. Women do well with 1 ml/week and rarely show virilization symptoms if the compound is not taken for more than six weeks. Female athletes rarely use Dynabolon since they normally prefer Durabolin, which has a shorter duration of effectiveness.
            The side effects in men are quite rare and usually occur only in sensitive persons' or when high dosages are taken. Possible side effects such as high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol lev-els, as well as acne or gynecomastia usually disappear without treatment after use of the product is discontinued. The blackmarket price is between $15 and $20 on the black market. The red label on the ampule is branded into the glass and can be felt. It cannot be removed by fingernail or be scratched off.

              Durabolin is very similar to the popular Deca-Durabolin. Durabolin must be injected frequently and in regular inter-vals. The substance nandrolone-phenylpropionate quickly gets into the blood, where it remains active for two to three days. Athletes who hope for optimal results inject Durabolin every third day, or even every two days. The dosage is around 50-100 mg per injec-tion, or a total of 150-300 mg/week. Those who have access to the 50 mg version should take advantage of it since it is less expensive than the 25 mg version, which is normally more easily available. in addition, the 1-2 ml injections are more pleasant than the 2-4 ml. Durabolin has a distinct anabolic effect which assists the protein synthesis and allows the protein to be stored in the muscle cell in large amounts. This is combined with a moderate androgenic com-ponent which stimulates the athlete's regeneration and helps main-tain the muscle mass during a diet. It shows that Durabolin stores much less water in the body than Deca-Durabolin. For this reason, Durabolin is more suitable for a preparation for a competition while Deca should be given preference for the buildup of strength and muscle mass. Durabolin, however, can be used for this purpose as well. The gains are fewer and slower than with Deca but of a higher quality and remain, for the most part, after discontinuing the com-pound. A stack suitable for this purpose would be, e.g. 56 mg Durabolin every 2 days, 50 mg Testosterone propionate every days, and 20 mg Winstrol tablets every day.
              The side effects of Durabolin are few. Water retention, high blood pressure, an el-evated estrogen level, and virilization symptoms occur less often with Durabolin than with Deca-Durabolin. Female athletes therefore take Durabolin in weekly intervals since, due to its short duration of effect, no undesirable concentration of androgen takes place. They achieve good results with 50 mg Durabolin/week, 50 mg Testosterone propionate every 8 -10 days, and 8-10 mg Winstrol/day, or 10 mg Oxandrolone/day. Three to four day intervals between the relative injections are to be observed. Durabolin is one of the safest non-toxic steroids offering satisfactory results. Durabolin has no negative effect on the liver function so it can even be taken in cases of liver disease. Side effects occur only in rare cases and in persons who are extremely sensitive. Virilization symptoms in women such as huskiness, deep voice, hirsutism, acne, and increased libido are possible but occur only rarely if reasonable dosages are taken at reasonable intervals. Men usually experience no symptoms with Durabolin. Since the release of gonadotropins in the hypophysis is inhibited, there is a chance that the body's own testosterone production in a male athlete will be lower when the compound is taken over a prolonged time and in excessive doses.
              The main disadvantages of Durabolin, for most athletes, consist of its poor availability on the black market, the fact that frequent in-jections are needed, and the high cost, three ampules of 25 mg each, costs approx. $24-36- on the black market. American Durabolin is available in 25 mg/ml, 5 ml vials, and 50 mg/ml in 2 vials.

                The substance; 2, 4-Dinitrophenol has many other brand names such as, 1 Hydroxy-2,4-dinitrophenol, Solfo Black, Nitrophen, Aldifen, and Chemox are just a few and is among many things, a metabolic stimulant. That is it's popularity here in our world, it burns fat like no other. Let me just tell you of it's other uses before I continue. First, it is a toxic dye, chemically related to Trinitrophenol (Picric Acid), second, it is found in insecticides, wood preservatives, herbicides, explosives, and is also a hazardous material. Third, it is used in science to couple or attach to DNA molecules. All of this should tell you that it is not a run-of-the-mill metabolic stimulant, like Clenbuterol or Triacana or Ephedrine or any other for that matter. Here is DNP's tox faq's from the international chemical safety cards to you give an idea of what it is considered to be; Combustible. Gives off irritating or toxic fumes (or gases) in a fire. Risk of fire and explosion. DO NOT expose to friction or shock. MAY BE ABSORBED! Redness. Roughness. Yellow staining on the skin. PHYSICAL STATE; APPEARANCE: YELLOW CRYSTALS ROUTES OF EXPOSURE: The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation, through the skin and by ingestion. PHYSICAL DANGERS: Dust explosion possible if in powder or granular form, mixed with air. INHALATION RISK: Evaporation at 20C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly. CHEMICAL DANGERS: May explosively decompose on shock, friction, or concussion. May explode on heating. Shock-sensitive compounds are formed with alkalis, ammonia and most metals. The substance decomposes on heating producing toxic gases including nitrogen oxides. EFFECT OF SHORT-TERM EXPOSURE: The substance may cause effects on metabolism, resulting in very high body temperature. Exposure may result in death. EFFECTS OF LONG TERM OR REPEATED EXPOSURE: Repeated or prolonged contact with skin may cause dermatitis. The substance may have effects on the peripheral nervous system. The substance may have effects on the eyes, resulting in cataracts. Boiling point: sublimes C, Melting point: 112C, Relative density (water = 1): 1.68. Solubility in water, g/100 ml at 54.5C: 0.14. Relative vapor density (air = 1): 6.36. This product is handled and shipped in a 15% solution of water, making it a paste, so that it will not explode due to shock or friction.
                DNP is an uncoupling agent that inhibits the flow of electrons and the pumping of H+ ions for ATP synthesis. Fifty years ago it was used for weight loss, however, in 1938 the FDA removed it from the counter, as it caused cataracts and even sometimes death. If electron transport does not produce ATP, then much more sugar must be metabolized for energy needs. Very low production of ATP would be lethal. In oxidative phosphorylation, the flow of electrons from NADH (the reduced form of NAD+, oxidized from NAD. This enzyme is important in accepting electrons in the course of metabolic reactions. When NAD+ gives up it's electron, it is converted to it's reduced form NADH) and FADH2 (the reduced form of FAD) to oxygen results in the pumping of H+ from the matrix to the inner membrane space of the mitochondria. This gradient of H+ can produce ATP by flowing through ATP synthetase in the mitochondrial inner membrane. Dinitrophenol disrupts the H+ gradient reducing ATP synthesis. Under these conditions, much of the food that we eat could not be used for ATP synthesis and we lose weight. However, too much inhibitor and we could make too little ATP for life. The difference between weight loss and death is only a small concentration change in dinitrophenol, making the drug dangerous. Simply put, this means that while eating your normal diet, you will have somewhere between 20% and 40% reduction of calories.
                You may now be wondering just what kind of dose would be effective, but not harmful. A dose of 2mg/kg/day (or two mgs per kg of body weight per day) would be an effective dose, causing the loss of about 5 to 10 pounds in a 10 to 14 day period, maybe less. So, a person weighing 200 lbs would weigh about 91 kgs, so 2mgs per kg of body weight would be the equivalent of 182 mgs of DNP per day, but since it typically comes in 200 mg capsules, you would take one cap per day. Since DNP has this inhibiting effect, glycolosis is inhibited as well, causing a diabetic effect due to the conversion of glucose without insulin, so you may have heard that people take insulin with DNP. This will counter act the symptoms of lethargy and lack of energy due to DNP's use.
                Finding DNP, this may be a little difficult as there are only two manufacturers of it. Sigma and Springfield scientific, though they do not generally sell to the public, it is still available. If you cannot find someone with capsules, you may try to get some bulk (somewhere around $20.00 - $30.00 per lb I think), but since this is considered a hazardous material, it cannot be conveniently or inconspicuously shipped (which for consumption is a felony), however, it is possible. However, to get use of the bulk/raw form, you will need to make your own capsules, which is a meticulous process.

                  "Dianabol (1 7-alpha-methyl-1 7beta-hydroxil-androsta-1.4dien-3-on) is an orally applicable steroid with a great effect on the protein metabolism. The effect of Dianabol promotes the protein synthesis, thus it supports the buildup of protein. This effect mani-fests itself in a positive nitrogen balance and an improved well-be-ing. Dianabol has a very strong anabolic and androgenic effect which manifests itself in an enormous buildup of strength and muscle mass in its users. Dianabol is simply a "mass steroid" which works quickly and reliably. A weight gain of 2 - 4 pounds per week in the first six weeks is normal with Dianabol. The additional body weight consists of a true increase in tissue (hyper-trophy of muscle fibers) and, in particular, in a noticeable retention of fluids. Dianabol aromatizes easily so that it is not a very good drug when one works out for a competition. Excessive water reten-tion and aromatizing can be avoided in most cases by simultaneously taking Nolvadex and Proviron so that some athletes are able to use Dianabol until three to four days before a competition. An effective daily dose for athletes is around 15-40 mg/day. The dosage of Dianabol taken by the athlete should always be coordinated with his individual goals. Steroid nov-ices do not need more than 15-20 mg of Dianabol per day since this dose is sufficient to achieve exceptional results over a period of 8-10 weeks. When the effect begins to slow down in this group after about eight weeks and the athlete wants to continue his treatment, the dosage of Dianabol should not be increased but an injectable steroid such as Deca-Durabolin in a dosage of 200 mg/week or Primobolan in a dosage of 200 mg/week should be used in addition to the Dianabol dose; or he may switch to one of the two above-mentioned compounds. The use of testosterone is not recommended at this stage as the athlete should leave some free play for later. For those either impatient or more advanced, a stack of Dianabol 20-30 mg/day and Deca-Durabolin 200-400 mg/day achieves miracles. Those who are more interested in strength and less in body mass can combine Dianabol with either Oxandrolone or Winstrol tablets. The additional intake of an injectable steroid does, however, clearly show the best results. To build up mass and strength, Sustanon or Testosterone enanthate at 250-mg+/week and/ or Deca-Durabolin 200 at mg +/week are suitable. To prepare, for a competition, Dianabol has only limited use since it causes distinct water retention in many athletes and due to its high conversion rate into estrogen it complicates the athlete's fat breakdown. Those of you without this problem or who are able to control it by taking Nolvadex or Proviron, in this phase should use Dianabol together with the proven Parabolan, Winstrol Depot, Masteron, Oxandrolone, etc.
                  Since Dianabol's half-life time is only 3.2 - 4.5 hours (1) application at least twice a day is necessary to achieve a somewhat even concen-tration of the substance in the blood. It is recommended that the tablets be taken during meals so that pos-sible gastrointestinal pains can be avoided. Dianabol reaches the blood after 1-3 hours. A simple application of only 10 mg results in a 5-fold increase in the average testosterone concentration in the male.Women should not use Dianabol because, due to its distinct andro-genic component, considerable virilization symptoms can occur. Although Dianabol has many potential side effects, they are rare with a dosage of up to 20 mg/day. Since Dianabol is I 7-alpha alky-lated it causes a considerable strain on the liver. In high dosages and over a longer period of time, Dianabol is liver-toxic. Even a dosage of only 10 mg/day can increase the liver values; after discontinu-ance of the drug, however, the values return to normal. Since Dianabol quickly increases the body weight due to high water re-tention, a high blood pressure and a faster heartbeat can occur, some-times requiring the intake of an antihypertensive drug such as Catapresan. Additive intake of Nolvadex and Proviron might be necessary as well, since Dianabol strongly converts into estro-gens and in some athletes causes gynecomastia ("bitch tits") or worsens an already existing condition. Because of the strongly androgenic component and the conversion into dihydrotestosterone, Dianabol, in some athletes, can trigger a seri-ous acne vulgaris on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders since the sebaceous gland function is stimulated. If a hereditary predispo-sition exists Dianabol can also accelerate a possible hair loss which again can be explained by the high conversion of the substance into dihydrotestosterone. Another disadvantage is that, after discontinuance of the compound, a considerable loss of strength and mass often occurs since the water stored during the intake is again excreted by the body. In high dosages of 5 0 mg +/day aggres-sive behavior in the user can occasionally be observed which, if it only refers to his workout, can be an advantage. In order toavoid uncontrolled actions, those who have a tendency to easily lose, their temper should be aware of this characteristic when taking a high D-bol dosage. Despite all of these possible symptoms Dianabol instills in most athletes a "sense of well-being anabolic" which improves the mood and appetite and in many users, together with the ob-tained results, leads to an improved level of consciousness and a higher self-confidence.

                    Estandrуn 105 mg/ml; Organon PT A

                    This injectable steroid is a mix of three different testosterone esters and a smaller portion of estradiol, a female sex hormone. The test-osterone composition of Estandr6n is similar to that found in Sustanon but contains one less testosterone substance (Testosterone decanoate). Like all other injectable testosterone compounds Estandr6n is also extremely suitable for a rapid build up of strength and muscle mass. It is highly androgenic and has a distinct protein -improving and anticatabolic effect. Estandr6n also improves the body's ability to regenerate; it lubricates joints by storing fluid in the connective tissue, and it increases the glycogen level n the muscle cells.
                    Why in the world are estrogens included in a steroid compound whose main component is the male sex hormone test-osterone? The answer is simple: Estandr6n's target group is not men but women. The steroid developed by Organon Company is a com-bination of androgens/estrogens which in school medicine is used in the treatment of climacteric disorders (various physical conditions occurring in women in menopause) and of osteoporosis. The an-tagonistic (contrasting) sexual effects are distinct. To get the facts straight: the estradiol included in Estandr6n neutralizes the andro-genic effect of the three testosterone esters, thereby reducing or avoid-ing androgenic-caused masculinization symptoms in women.
                    This is a combination which offers bodybuilders advantages and disadvantages. The advantage consists of the fact that women who do not want to give up the performance-enhancing characteristics of testosterone but, at the same time, who show a sensitive reaction to the androgenic component, can achieve good gains without too much worry about virilization symptoms. The same is true for men who may experience acne, hair loss or a prostate condition when taking additional testosterone. In these cases the estradiol in the com-pound is able to counteract these conditions. Since small amounts of estrogens are also anabolic and in particular stimulate blood cir-culation, this could also be one of the reasons why Estandr6n gives its users an enormous pump and a considerable increase in mass. Another positive aspect is also the fact that estrogens reinforce the storage of calcium in bones. Unfortunately, the estradiol mixture can lead to the formation of edemas and weight gain in both sexes. This results in excessive water retention and the risk of formation of subcutaneous fat deposits with increases in the dosage. A consider-able risk of gynecomastia in male bodybuilders is also present. Com-peting bodybuilders and athletes who, because of testosterone injec-tions, grow very rapidly should stay away from Estandr6n. Fur-ther, the endogenous testosterone production is reduced consider-ably and the blood pressure often rises as well.
                    The dosage for male bodybuilders usually lies between 3 and 5 ml/ week. In order to minimize androgenic-caused side effects some "deli-cate" men combine Estandr6n with the milder and predominantly anabolic steroids and achieve quite satisfying results. An example might be an intake of 3 ml Estandr6n/week and 200 mg Primobolan Depot/week or 200 mg Deca-Durabolin/week. Those who would like to gain body mass as quickly as possible and who do not care about its consistency or quality, will be satisfied by taking 5 ml Estandr6n/week, 200 mg Deca-Durabolin/week, and 30 mg Dianabol/day. Women are usually content with 1-2 ml Estandr6n/ week. Most female bodybuilders achieve good gains and losing their femininity while taking 20 mg Winstrol tablets/day and 1-2 Estandr6n/week.

                      Substance: formebolone

                      Hubernol (o.c.) 5 mg drag.; ICN Hubber ES

                      Esiclene is a steroid that is somewhat different from the others. The substance formebolone is available in various forms of administration. For athletes only the injectable version is of interest. Because of its anabolic effect, Esiclene is not well suited as a steroid for athletes. In bodybuilding, however, it is a highly valued and commonly used compound since it has the unusual characteristic of allowing any muscle to increase in diameter and size within the shortest period. How is this possible? Esiclene stimulates the muscle tissue located at the point of injection. The tissue defends itself or shall we say, reacts with a local inflammation.
                      This is manifested by an accumulation of tissue fluid from the lymph system which is the cause for the swelling or enlargement of the injected muscle. In order to avoid any misunderstandings we want to explicitly emphasize once more that the liquid is not accumulating in the skin but actually in the muscle tissue. Now it should also be clear why all other forms of administration of the compound will bring no results for bodybuilders. Since an inflammation is normally painful, each Esiclene ampule also in-cludes 20 mg lidocaine, a mild painkiller. The injection itself is not painful but an unpleasant feeling at the point of injection is noted for about a day. Since the substance dissolves in water, Esiclene's duration of effect is limited so that the swelling begins to decrease after about one day, and after at most 4-5 days the muscle is back to its normal size. For this reason, bodybuilders use Esiclene only during the last 7-14 days before a competition to shape up less-developed muscle groups. In order to compen-sate for the decrease in swelling, the compound is usually in-jected daily. Smaller muscle groups such as biceps, triceps, del-toid muscles and calves are especially suitable and thus preferred over others.
                      Over a period of 1-2 weeks a temporary growth gain of 1-1,5 inches on arms and calves can be obtained. At most, two or three different muscles are usually injected at the same time. Often the athlete starts with a 1 ml injection; during the following days it is increased to 2 ml = 1 ampule per muscle. Esiclene, for this purpose, is injected with insulin needles. Esiclene is also popular among women since it is highly effective. It has also been proven that Esiclene, as is com-mon for water-dissolved steroids, helps the athlete to achieve a bet-ter muscle hardness over the entire body during the course of his preparation for a competition. Some bodybuilders use Esiclene over a longer period in regular intervals, usually 2 ml every 5-7 days, in order to stimulate the growth of an extremely obstinate arm or calf muscle. Apart from the pain at the point of injection and, in some cases, a somewhat awkward-looking muscle, Esiclene has no sig-nificant negative side effects. It is difficult to find Esiclene on the black market. Six ampules are included in a box with a pull-out plastic bed. One ampule contains 2 ml of injection liquid with 4 mg of dissolved substance. This compound is very inexpensive. On the black market an ampule nor-mally sells for $6 - 10.

                        Today, the substance boldenone undecylenate can only be found in steroids for veterinary medicine. The American Equipoise is for horses; the Columbian Ganabol is used for cattle; and the German Vebonol for dogs. Athletes do not care, which shows the enormous popularity and far-reaching application of these steroid compounds. Boldenone undecylenate is also very effective in humans and offers the athlete interesting characteristics which other steroids simply do not have.
                        Equipoise has a relatively high anabolic effect which is usually connected with a moderately distinct androgenic component. For this reason, Equipoise is not the steroid that will cause enormous gains in strength and muscle mass in the shortest time. Equipoise has a very favorable effect on the organism's nitrogen balance so that the main effect consists of a distinctly increased protein synthesis in the muscle cell. The resulting gain in body weight consists of a solid quality increase of the muscles which occurs slowly and evenly. The high quality is caused by low water retention of the substance. An additional advantage is that Equipoise aromatizes only slightly, thus making it an effective drug to use when preparing for competitions. Athletes who are dieting combine Equipoise with Winstrol Depot and report a dramatic increase in muscle hardness. Together with a sufficiently high supply of calories and protein this combination offers its users a large increase in strength and a rapid gain in qual-ity muscles. Many will notice that Equipoise stimulates the appe-tite. The advantages achieved can usually be well-maintained over several weeks after use of the compound is discontinued. Equipoise also stimulates the erythropoiesis which is manifested by improved development and the formation of red blood cells. Bodybuilders thus experience an improved pump effect during workout and an im-proved vascularity
                        For most male athletes the weekly dosage is usually 150-300 mg. Often since only the 25 mg version can be found, frequent or very voluminous injections are necessary For most athletes 50 mg (corresponding to a 2 ml injection) taken every second day is sufficient. Advanced and ambitious bodybuilders usually take higher doses (50 mg daily) and achieve dramatic results. Women also usually respond well to Equipoise and with 5 0-100 mg/week they gain good muscles with a low water retention. A dosage in this range is usually well tolerated. Higher dosages can cause virilization symptoms such as deep voice, increased production of the sebaccous gland and acne, increased libido and in some cases increased hair growth on the face and legs. Men have few problems with Equipoise. Since water and salt retentions are low, the blood pressure usually does not increase. Acne, gynecomastia, and increased aggressiveness occur only in rare instances. The feared "steroid fever," which can occur when using veterinary steroids, is rare with Equipoise since the product by Squibb is highly sterile and pure. Those who experience flu-like symptoms when they begin taking the compound should reduce the dosage for a short time. The price on the black market for a 10 ml vial is usu-ally around $90. The 50 ml vial is usually around $250.

                          Finaplix is a veterinary cattle implant, which contains the potent androgenic steroid trenbolone acetate. This is the same drug which was once available as an injectable in the U.S., labeled Finaject, although it's production has been discontinued here and worldwide for about a decade. Finaplix was the last remaining pure trenbolone acetate, however it too had now been discontinued and replaced with Revalor, trenbolone acetate with a small amount of estradiol, an estrogen (see Revalor). Trenbolone acetate is a potent androgen, which will not readily convert to estrogen. Since in this case it is in the form of a cattle implant, administration is a bit difficult. Most commonly, these implant pellets are ground up and mixed with a 50/50 water/DMSO mix and applied to the skin daily. This homebrew transdermal mix is very effective, as seen in Finaplix's popularity. Some a little more daring have mixed their own Bi-weekly (or more frequent) injections, although I couldn't see this being a very sanitary practice. Either when applied to the skin, or injected, users report great strength and mass gains with no gyno or water retention. Along with being a strong muscle-building steroid, it is also noted as being very effective at burning fat. This has made it very appealing for competitive athletes looking to shed fat, while at the same time trying to avoid water retention and keep the hard physique, which a strong androgen helps bring about. It should be noted that this is not a beginner's steroid. Finaplix can be very toxic, especially to the kidneys. Since this is a strong androgen, related side effects such as acne and increased aggression are also very common. To be cautious, users will commonly limit their use of this drug to 4 or 6 weeks. Old lots of Finaplix are still available through some veterinary suppliers, and being an implant is not being controlled as a steroid. It will not be long before old lots are exhausted and pure trenbolone acetate will once again disappear.

                            GHB, or gamma-hydroxybutyrate is a naturally occurring metabolite and precursor to GABA (gamma-aminobutyrate). GHB was a widely available over-the-counter supplement until it was banned by the FDA in 1990. The substance has many beneficial effects, but it is typically used by bodybuilders and athletes because it can significantly raise growth hormone levels. Unfortunately, the increase in GH levels is also accompanied by an increase in levels of prolactin. The increase in prolactin counteracts many of the positive effects of an elevated GH level. This probably explains why many athletes experience very little as far as muscle growth with the use of GHB. Several athletes using GHB report an increase in lean body mass and strength. Many users don't experience any muscle or strength increase, but do feel GHB help to accelerate fat loss.
                            Besides the increase in growth hormone, there are many other positive effects of GHB that may prove beneficial to athletes. First, GHB is an excellent sleeping aid. A small dosage will induce a state of relaxation, euphoria, and drowsiness. An even higher dosage will intensify the effect and help the user fall asleep quickly. GHB aids in REM and slow-wave sleep, and unlike other popular sleep aids, GHB will not interrupt any stages of the natural sleep pattern. This is crucial in achieving a complete session of sleep necessary for recuperation and muscle recovery. One problem with GHB-induced sleep is that some people tend to wake up 3-4 hours later when the GHB has worn off. This effect is probably due to the fact that GHB will temporarily inhibit the release of dopamine in the brain, and at the same time increase dopamine storage. When the GHB wears off, there will be a sudden increase in dopamine release and this is what may cause some people to wake up in the middle of the night. This is more likely to happen when a high dosage of GHB is used. Therefore, the dosage of GHB used to induce sleep should be lowered. Another way to combat this effect is simply by taking a second dosage upon wakening to allow for another 3-4 hours of sleep. It is interesting to note that this increase in dopamine release is also the reason why so many people report feelings of improved well-being and alertness the next day after a night of GHB-induced sleep.
                            GHB induces a state of euphoria, relaxation, and sensuality along with a lowering of anxiety and inhibition. It also exhibits prosexual effects by improving tactility (sense of touch), enhancing erectile capacity in men, and increasing the intensity of orgasm. For these reasons, GHB has become a very popular recreational drug. It has become even more popular among athletes because unlike other recreational drugs, GHB will not hinder athletic performance. GHB is used by many athletes as a substitute for alcohol because it does not cause a hangover the following day. GHB is also very effective in treating the withdrawal symptoms of alcoholism.
                            Now that GHB has been banned by the FDA, an athlete only has a few options if he want to obtain GHB. First, he can buy it on the black market. This has several disadvantages. To begin with, much of the stuff on the black market is made by underground chemists using cheap materials that may contain harmful impurities. Also, it is difficult to determine the concentration since most GHB sold on the black market is dissolved in water. The concentration will often vary and this will make it hard to accurately determine a dosage. A second option would be to mail order the GHB from a foreign pharmacy. This is risky because US Customs may seize the order. There may also be legal consequences to buying GHB. GHB is a controlled substance and many states are trying to make it a scheduled drug. Some states are even trying to make it a schedule I drug. The last option left to the athlete is to make the GHB himself. The manufacture of GHB is illegal in the United States, but many people choose to do it anyway. There are several different approaches for synthesizing GHB available over the internet. Some are good and some are bad. The syntheses of GHB is certainly not difficult, but it is definitely not as easy as mixing some NaOH with gamma butyrolactone in a pot and allowing it to cook in the oven for a couple of hours. The type of procedure will produce some GHB, but the yield will be very poor. Chances are there will also be a lot of unreacted chemicals. Also, depending on the pH, it could be dangerous to ingest. Many of the GHB procedures with good yields may be difficult to perform for the average person that has very little knowledge of chemistry.

                              injection, where it is shot is where it will burn the most noticeable fat. Most
                              people do it in the stomach since that is a typical sub q shot with most of the
                              fat being in that area. GH should be kept in a fridge; freezing will destroy the
                              GH. On your kit it probably says to use the kit in 18-24 hours, remember these
                              are for AIDS patients, not bodybuilders or athletes. Mixing the GH can either be
                              done with sterile water or bacteriostic water. The kit with water will be fine
                              for 3 days in the fridge, even with the sterile water, but you should not take
                              this chance, rather you should use bacteriostic water and play it safe. This
                              will keep it fine for a couple of weeks. When mixing the GH, let the water slide
                              down the side as to not pulverize the GH wafer. Do not spray it directly against
                              the wafer with any force. Before reconstitution and even after GH is fragile!!!
                              Also once the water is injected into the bottle gently swirl the vial to
                              reconstitute, do not shake or swirl violently!!!!
                              1 ml = 1 cc -/+
                              100 units per 1 cc
                              6 mg = 18iu
                              1 ml = 18iu
                              .50 ml = 9iu
                              .25 ml = 4.5iu
                              Some people choose to only do it in cc’s but here is how you can do it in units
                              on a slin dart
                              5.5 = 1iu, so 2iu = 11 on a slin dart
                              4 to 6 iu ed is sufficient. Most people take it 5 days on 2 days off at their
                              designated dosage. There is no reason or evidence why you cannot stay on for
                              various lengths of time; there is no need to go 5 on 2 off other than cost.
                              Considering that our natural production is only .5 to 1.5iu a day, this is still
                              a huge bump for the body. Research has shown that the body's natural defense
                              systems render mega doses of GH ineffective, anyway. GH does not cause gains in
                     allows you to put on a great deal of lean mass in combination with
                              proper steroid and insulin use. The user before taking must know this. One or
                              two kits are not enough, you need at least 3 to make you happy, GH takes a while
                              to make its effects, but remember they are long lasting, what you see is what
                              you keep. It takes 6 to 8 weeks to notice a dramatic change in body comp using
                              GH on an ED or 5/2 split. Lighter doses for long periods of time are better than
                              large doses for short cycles. Like any other drug, the more you take the more
                              the benefits, but likewise also more risks. 4-6 iu is a standard dose but many
                              people take more, the most repulsing side effects happen at or beyond 12 iu a
                              day but like anything else it depends on your predisposition for it.
                              How to Stack:
                              GH is best taken in conjunction with insulin, anabolic steroids, and t3. Insulin
                              is extremely effective with GH, as anyone here who has tried it will testify.
                              This is because GH injections cause a down regulation of insulin sensitivity in
                              the body.
                              GH alone causes little growth of lean mass, however, when combined with insulin
                              and steroids (and IGF-1 if you can find it), the results can be down right
                              remarkable...esp. in the older bodybuilder. Start light with the
                              humulin...5iu...and work up 1 iu a day till you get use to it. 7 to 10iu in the
                              AM and 7 to 10 iu in the late afternoon, with split doses of GH is your best
                              bet. When splitting GH/insulin doses, I use mid-morning and late afternoon after
                              lifting.... both flat times in our natural GH production. The insulin overcomes
                              the insulin-resistance caused by exogenous GH supplementation. If you are scared
                              to take insulin thought, then Gh with Test and Glucophage is good. GH is good
                              for cutting if used alone. Glucophage allows for improved glucose and amino acid
                              absorption by the muscle tissue and does it safely. This is what you want. The
                              half-life of GH is only 2 hours so spread it out. Avoid bedtime injections since
                              we produce the bulk of our own GH in the first two hours of sleep. Since
                              exogenous GH suppresses this, you should not take it before bed. For best
                              results, use a 17aa oral during the cycle to stimulate the release of natural
                              insulin growth factors. I would run the test throughout. GH/insulin/test is the
                              proven synergistic combination.
                              It is also wise to preload with testosterone before starting GH if you are going
                              to do it. You should preload with the amount of time it takes for that
                              testosterone to kick in, since most of us take longer acting esters for
                              testosterone you should usually start taking the test 2 weeks before GH use.
                              Likewise, you can accommodate it to fit your needs; the key is for the test to
                              be kicking in the same time you are starting to run your GH. You can cycle you
                              steroids however you want to depending on your goals, if you are going for a
                              more massive look than you would run insulin for most of the cycle and use high
                              androgens, but if you are looking for additional leanness at the end of a cycle
                              you should stop the androgens and run a higher dose of GH or run less androgens.
                              T3 is also another substance that should be used during GH cycling since GH
                              lowers thyroid hormones. T3 should be used for shorter periods though, because
                              it can permanently alter the endocrine system. The magic of GH for men is the
                              ability to gain mass without fat or bloating when stacked properly with insulin,
                              and steroids. GH also makes for amazing improvements in skin...smoothes
                              wrinkles, burns stubborn spots of adipose tissue, gives that paper-thin contest
                              look...and also gives one a real mood lift, a feeling of well being.
                              Major Difference Between GH and Steroids:
                              Steroids can increase the size of your muscle cells, but cannot I repeat CAN NOT
                              increase the number of muscle cells in your body, which to start with is
                              governed by your genetics. However Growth hormone CAN increase the number of
                              muscle cells in your body, which goes beyond genetics.
                              Half-Life of GH:
                              Exogenous (injected) GH has a "half-life" of approximately 2 hours . . . a
                              4-hour period of activity during which there is a suppression of naturally
                              produced GH.
                              GH Naturally Produced:
                              We release the most of our naturally produced GH during the first two hours of
                              deep may take a little time to adjust.... your body thinks you
                              should be in bed when that big influx hits. It is good to take a nap, that’s
                              when you grow anyway. It always helps to take naps after workouts and injections
                              GH Causing Acromeglia:
                              Acromeglia is a either have it or you don't. Supplementing GH will
                              not cause it. Persons suffering from acromeglia, like Andre the Giant, lack the
                              natural defense mechanisms of the body to regulate the production and effects of
                              GH secretion in he pituitary. It is well established in the medical literature
                              that exogenous GH will not cause the disease.... of course it would worsen the
                              condition in those who had it.
                              GH Gut: Myth or Reality?:
                              Some researchers claim that any gains in weight experienced by subjects using GH
                              alone was due to growth of internal organs and connective tissue, which could
                              cause some problems. Most studies do not agree with this theory and consider "GH
                              gut" to be a myth. Some people are allergic to synthetic test, this is something
                              you have to find out for yourself. Some people also feel intestinal discomfort
                              from time to time, if so take it down to one item at a time to see what is
                              causing you discomfort; creatine, glutamine, protein products, orals, and dirty
                              gear have all been known to cause this, so find the problem early.
                              GH and IGF-1:
                              Perhaps the most relevant effect of IGF-1 is the ability of IGF-1 to increase
                              protein synthesis by increasing cellular mRNA formation (mRNA makes protein) as
                              well as increasing uptake of amino acids. This effect on protein synthesis can
                              lead to increased lean mass. The research indicates that this effect is
                              dependent on GH presence as well. So IGF-1 alone does not promote such effects.
                              Nor does GH. It appears the combination of the two most consistently lead to
                              increased protein synthesis.
                              GH and IGF-1 are negative regulators of GH release so an increase in either
                              (from a GH injection) reduces the secretion of GH. IGF-1 is very difficult to
                              obtain in a useable condition.... it must be handled very gently and have bee
                              kept at a rather precise temperature at all times. One can stimulate IGF
                              production through the use of an oral steroid during cycle. Dbol, for example,
                              causes a rather extensive release of IGF during the first pass through the
                              Latest study by Yarashevski - with GH alone...8 to 12% change
                              in lean body composition. 6% increase in muscle mass.

                                (metformin HCL)

                                Known Name Brands: Glucophage, Mellitron. Glucophage - 850 mg. tablets - 40 per box. Glucophage is a brand name for metformin, which is an oral hypoglycemic drug. Glucophage is made to control adult onset diabetes. This drug is will increase the body's ability to transport glucose into the muscle cells much better by increasing insulin sensitivity. This substance will also inhibit the body's formation of sugar by the liver whereby lowering insulin secretion in the body. This substance is very similar to phenformin that is also an oral hypoglycemic except that phenformin is considered the harsher of the two compounds. Phenformin is considered to be from 5 - 10 times stronger than Glucophage at what it does for the body on a mg. per mg. comparison. Glucophage has significantly less side effects than phenformin has as well. The chance for an overdose causing hypoglycemia with the use of Glucophage is dose related whereas you almost have to take a lethal dose. It is common knowledge that Glucophage will increase insulin sensitivity as well. As far as bodybuilders are concerned, this product is used as an oral form of insulin. It will cause greater glycogen super compensation during carb-ups as well as lowering blood glucose for those that are using the BodyOpus or Atkins diet to induce ketosis more easily. Common side effects of Glucophage are a metallic taste in the mouth, nausea, and vomiting. Effective Dose: 1,700 mg. per day in divided doses. You have to take this with meals and with water to avoid stomach upset.
