Soon after the famous record by Roger Maris was beaten, another baseball player, Jason Giambi and others came out to say they often used prohormones. The Congress was forced to convene a hearing after which it determined that steroids were not really a threat. Rather, it ruled out that it was the responsibility of professional sports organizations to supervise and regulate their use. The law was updated and an official definition of the term steroid was given as follow: an “anabolic steroid” means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens), progestins, corticosteroids, and dehydroepiandrosterone).
Winstrol is a brand name of the synthetic anabolic steroid, stanozolol. Although no longer available in the . under the name of Winstrol, generic versions of stanozolol can still be found. Stanozolol is similar to testosterone and commonly used by veterinarians on debilitated animals (especially dogs and horses) to improve muscle growth, trigger red blood cell production, increase bone density and enhance appetite. It's approved by the . Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treating anemia and hereditary angioedema (swelling of blood vessels) in people, although a prescription is needed. Winstrol (stanozolol) is a banned performance-enhancing drug, but still used widely by track and field athletes as well as bodybuilders — usually illegally. You should take stanozolol only with the permission and under the care of a physician.
Another advantage of injecting stanozolol is that it will negate the first pass of the compound through the liver and therefore is less toxic to the organ. Despite these advantages however, there are a few disadvantages of choosing to inject, namely the comfort of the user. Stanozolol is notorious for causing pain at the injection site upon administration and for possibly several days afterwards, as anecdotally reported by users. This will often cause users to begin administering the compound orally, especially when due to the compound's unique structure, the injectable version can be taken orally as well.
