Oral Turinabol is a legendary anabolic steroid with long history. Structurally it is an altered molecule of Methandrostenolone (Dianabol) and can be regarded it as a hybrid between Methandrostenolone and Clostebol. This substance has high anabolic and very low androgenic properties.
The ratio of anabolic to androgenic properties is 53/6, whereas the ratio of Dianabol is 90/45, as compared to testosterone. Therefore it is not as fast as Dianabol in gaining muscle mass.
However when taken during several weeks it does provide a qualitative gain of solid muscles and strength. Besides it is not prone to aromatization, thus estrogen related side-effects (e.g. gynecomastia and water retention) are not likely to happen.
The Effects of Oral Turinabol
- Steady and progressive gain of solid muscles and strength. Though some athletes regard gradual progress as minus, it has its own benefits. Unlike “watery and puffy” rapid gains, Turinabol gains are not eventually lost after discontinuation of the drug.
- Moderate fat burning effect. For these purposes you should accompany Turinabol intake with strict diet and cardio / aerobic training.
- Increase of endurance. Turinabol has a pronounced effect on erythropoiesis. It increases the amount of red blood cells, which eventually leads to increased stamina.
Dosage and Usage
The usual dosage varies from 20 to 40mg/day. Divide the daily dosage into 3 portions and take at regular intervals. It’s better not to exceed the recommended doses as it doesn’t greatly affect the further gains, whereas side-effects start to prevail. If you want to improve your endurance only, take Turinabol at the dosage 20mg/day.
The length of a cycle is about 8 weeks. Due to low androgenic activity women can take Turinabol at the dosage 2-5mg/day, maximal dosage is 10mg/day (with caution). Higher doses may cause virilization.
One can combine Turinabol with different testosterone esters. Here is an example of possible combinations.
- Oral Turinabol 40mg/day + Testosterone Enanthate 250mg/week
- Oral Turinabol 40mg/day + Sustanon 250mg/week
- Oral Turinabol 40mg/day + Testosterone Propionate 50mg/every other day
Post Cycle Therapy requires antiestrogens, such as Tamoxifen or Clomiphen Citrate. Testosterone boosters are also advisable.
Though Oral Turinabol belongs to steroids with mildest side-effects, one should remember about their possibility. Usually they are dosage dependent and gender-specific. As we mentioned above Turinabol is not an aromatizable steroid with very low androgenic value.
Therefore estrogen and androgen related side-effects (acne, aggressive behavior, gynecomastia, water retention etc.) are extremely rare and can be regarded as exception.
In women it may cause virilization in case of genetic predisposition or high doses (over 10mg/day). In men it decreases the natural testosterone production, consequently PCT is required.
Oral Turinabol may increase the level of bad cholesterol (LDL) and decrease the level of good one (HDL). Besides, as any 17-alpha-alkylated steroid it has liver toxicity. Therefore if you have liver or cardiovascular problems you should avoid using this drug, or take it with caution.

Oral-Turinabol is an oral steroid which was developed during the early 1960`s.
OT has a predominantly anabolic effect which is combined with a relatively low androgenic component. On a scale of 1 to 100 the androgenic effect is very low -only a 6- and the anabolic effect is 53. (In comparison: the androgenic effect of Dianabol is 45 and its anabolic effect is 90.) Oral-Turinabol thus has milligram for milli-gram a lower effect than Dianabol. It is therefore not a steroid that causes a rapid gain in strength, weight, and muscle mass. Rather, the achievable results manifest themselves in a solid muscle gain and, if taken over several weeks, also in a good strength gain. The athlete will certainly not get a puffy look as is the case with Test-osterone, Dianabol, and Anadrol 50. The maximum blood concen-tration of Oral-Turinabol when taking 10, 20 or 40 mg/day is 1.5 -3.5 or 4.5 times the endogenous testosterone concentration (also see Dianabol). This clearly shows that the effectiveness of this compound strongly depends on the dosage. 0.4 x pound (body weight) x days = number of tablets to take overall during the interval of intake mg / tablet An athlete weighing 200 pounds would take only 4 tablets of 5 mg (20mg/day.) In our experience bodybuilders take 8-10 tablets of 5 mg, that is 40-50 mg/day. Many enthusiastically report good results with this dosage: one builds a solid muscle mass, the strength gain is worthwhile seeing, the water retention is very low, and the estrogen-caused side effects are rare. Not without good reason OT is also popular among powerlifters and weightlifters who appreciate these characteristics. Due to its characteristics OT is also a suitable steroid both for men and women in competitions. A usually very effective stack for male bodybuilders consists of 50 mg OT/day, 228 mg Parabolan/week, and 150 mg Winstrol Depot/week. Those who have brought their body fat content to a low level by dieting and/or by using fatburning substances (e.g. Clenbuterol, Ephedrine, Salbutamol, Cytomel, Triacana), will find that the above steroid combination will manifest itself in hard, sharply-defined but still dense and full muscles. No enlarged breasts, no estrogen surplus, and no watery, puffy-look-ing muscle system.
If OT were available on the U.S. black market for steroids, bodybuilders, powerlifters, and weightlifters would go crazy for this East German anabolic. OT enjoys a great popularity since it is quickly broken down by the body and the metabolites are excreted relatively quickly through the urine. The often-posed question regarding how many days before a test OT can be taken in order to be “clean” is difficult to answer specifically or in general. We know from a reli-able source that athletes who only take OT as a steroid and who, in part, take dosages of 10- 15 tablets/day, have discontinued the com-pound exactly five days before a doping test and tested negative. These indications are supported by the fact that even positive urine analyses have rarely mentioned the names Oral-Turinabol or chlordehydromethyl-testosterone. The potential side effects of OT usually depend on the dosage level and are gender-specific. in women, depending on their predisposi-tion, the usual virilization symptoms occur and increase when dos-ages of more than 20 mg per day are taken over a prolonged time. In men the already discussed reduced testosterone production can rarely be avoided. Gynecomastia occurs rarely with OT Since the response of the water and electrolyte household is not overly dis-tinct athletes only rarely report water retention and high blood pressure. Acne, gastrointestinal pain, and uncontrolled aggressive behavior are also the exception rather than the rule with OT An increased libido is reported in most cases by both sexes. Since the substance chlordehydromethyltestosterone is I 7-alpha alkylated the manufacturer in its package insert recommends that the liver func-tion be checked regularly since it can be negatively affected by high dosages and the risk of possible liver damage cannot be excluded. Thus OT is also a steroid that can be taken without interruption for long intervals. Studies of male athletes who over a period of six weeks were given 10 mg OT/day did not show any indications of health-threatening effects.
