Oxymetholone is one of the strongest androgenic steroid available. Similarly, it also poses the greatest risk of side effects of any steroid. Despite very low binding affinity with the androgen receptor, oxymetholone is highly effective in promoting extensive gains in body mass, mostly by greatly improving protein synthesis. For this reason, it is often used by bodybuilders and athletes. Many athletes also use oxymetholone as a method of protection for the joints under heavy loads. Due to the high water retention users experience from this drug, it similarly lubricates the joints and helps protect them from injury. Oxymetholone is widely considered by bodybuilders to have the strongest anabolic effect out of any oral steroid available.
We've already discussed this steroids strong hepatotoxic nature above, and as such, caution must be applied. Beyond this factor, like all DHT anabolic steroids Anadrol 50 will not aromatize; however, for reasons that are to this day still somewhat of a mystery it will carry strong estrogenic properties. Those who supplement with Anadrol 50 can fall prey to Gynecomastia, massive increases in blood pressure, and of course, water retention as discussed above. Each and every one of these adverse reactions can occur, and in a significant fashion, but for the healthy adult male, all hope is not lost; far from it. To combat such issues, those who supplement with Anadrol 50 will find the use of aromatase inhibitors (AI's) to be tremendously beneficial; the same AI's we often use to combat aromatizing steroids. Further, living a lifestyle that promotes a healthy blood pressure is imperative, as well as making sure you're not overeating abundantly; especially carbohydrates. If you can do these things, assuming you had a healthy blood pressure to begin with you will enjoy successful supplementation; it should go without saying, those who have preexisting high blood pressure should not supplement.
