In fact, GW1516 has not shown any significant side effects. There is no hormones suppression, no toxicity and no other common side effects. The only thing that should be noted is that GW1516 significantly activates metabolism and contributes to the rapid consumption of glycogen during exercises, so do not exceed recommended dosages; otherwise signs of hypoglycemia (weakness, drowsiness, hunger, muscular cramps, in severe cases - loss of consciousness) may occur. If you feel some of these signs, immediately eat something sweet (containing fast carbs).
In the beginning, Winstrol was used for a variety of medical reasons. But later, by the 1970s, the FDA had restricted its use to only promoting growth and treating osteoporosis. In the 1980s, there was a termination of the manufacture of anabolic steroids in the American market. But Winstrol was among those steroids which not only survived, but thrived in the 1980s and 1990s. During this period, its use was reinforced as a cure for anemia – as it had the power to boost red blood cell count, and was used as a treatment for facial swelling or angioedema.
Winstrol does not convert into Estrogen and has no Estrogenic activity on its own right, and so the gains expected from Winstrol should be that of lean, hard, quality lean mass muscle gains with no water retention at all (provided other aromatizable anabolic steroids are kept under control with an aromatase inhibitor ). Totally bodyweight and strength gains are not known to be as dramatic as the stronger more aromatizable anabolic steroids such as Dianabol , but gains resulting from Winstrol should always leave a measure of satisfaction in the individual at the end of a cycle, provided nutrition and training are both properly set.
