Metanabol is an orally applicable steroid with a great effect on protein metabolism. Metanabol is a derivative of testosterone and has a very strong anabolic and androgenic properties. It has a great effect on protein metabolism and promotes protein synthesis. This effect manifests itself in by creating a positive nitrogen balance, supporting the build up of protein and, thus, skeletal muscle mass. Methandienone also induces an improved sense of well-being.
Metanabol is one of the most highly effective mass building steroids ever created. It was, in fact, created specifically for athletes to use to improve performance (although it was claimed to have therapeutic ability). It provides highly impressive weight and strength gains for most users. Experiencing a 3-4lb weight gain per week is not unheard of, especially in novices. It must be noted that a lot if this is water weight, and that with higher dosages gynecomastia, high blood pressure, and acne could occur. Metanabol when taken orally becomes active very rapidly, but only remains active for less than half a day. Often, for this reason, dosages were spread through the day.
It is known that 10 mg of the Metanabol was enough for full androgen replacement in a man, and this dose increased androgen anabolic activity roughly 5 times over normal and provided a reduction in natural cortisol activity of between 50-70%. Despite this, many athletes take 50-100 mg daily. It would appear that over 50mg/day, there is a point of diminishing return.
