Forgotten Old Russian Steroid?

Ever used or heard of Silabolin (ethylestrenol) synthesized
at the Institute of Experimental Endocrinology and Hormone Chemistry of the Academy of Medical Sciences of the USSR.

I read that his anabolic activity is pretty much higher than it´s androgenicity. Apparently it was used in russia with patients with tuberculosis and post-surgical heart patients, having almost no androgenic activity. Does it really produce mass that lasts after stopping it´s use, as well as little water retention?

Does anyone know if it is still being produced and it´s effects on LH, FSH as well on GnRH?

Theres a reason its not being used. It costs more than var and winny, but is no where near as strong.

Silabolin

Substance: etylestrenol

Manufacturer: PharmaDom
Silabolin is an unusual steroid since its substance is a precursor of the female hormone progesterone. Technically it is a derivative of 19-nortestosterone. Silabolin is a very weak, oral steroid which is not very suitable for the buildup of strength and muscle mass. It is a steroid with a mostly anabolic effect that has only very low androgenic characteristics. Athletes who have taken Silabolin as their only steroid were mostly disappointed by its effect. In combination with steroids such as Winstrol, Parabolan, Masteron and Silabolin it leads to a high-quality muscle gain which remains after discontinuing the use of the product. Silabolin, however, is more a steroid for female athletes.
Virilization symptoms in dosages under 12-16 mg/day are rare and the fact that Silabolin is derived from the female hormone progesterone should also remove moral and ethical doubts. Since the tablets are not 17-alpha alkylated, liver toxicity is relatively low.

However, in high dosages and over long intervals of intake it is possible that certain liver values will increase. Silabolin aromatizes only slightly so that estrogenic-caused side effects are rarely expected. Athletes report minimal water retention. Some bodybuilders use Silabolin shortly before a championship since it slightly increases the blood pressure, resulting in a higher vascularity. Silabolin requires a relatively high daily dosage since the substance is very poorly absorbed by the steroid receptors in the muscle cell. Twenty or more tablets a day could have a certain effect but probably will also lead to several side effects. This is apart from the fact that such a large amount of tablets will cost the athlete quite a few dollars. You can turn this around as much as you like but malt athletes only profit from taking Silabolin if the daily dosage is at least 20 to 40 mg. Since Silabolin is as expensive as Oxandrolone and the Winstrol tablets but less effective, almost nobody shows interest in this compound. This is also the reason why it is rarely found on the black market. Due to its low demand there are no fakes.

It can still be found and bought from completely legitimate companies. All it takes is a little bit of research.

I love this quote…

Well alone it is shit but add in 2 to 3 other steroids and it is great! LMAO!

The same could be said for any drug/compound.

“Creatine alone gives minimal gains but add in test and deca and the gains are outstanding…!”

;D

LMAO! Coupled with several powerful androngens this piss oral steroid is great!

I think they were trying to say you get class I/II synergy but ya, I thought that was kinda funny as well…add parabolan to corn flakes and you should get very good gains.
