In the normal world, this steroid which is pretty similar to testosterone, is usually used to treat other issues on humans and for muscle growth.

It’s used to cure swellings in the face, large intestines, and sometimes in the throat as well. 


Winny will definitely help you achieve your goal of getting ripped and also very muscular.

  • There is no question about that.


When bodybuilders consume this substance, it basically gives you the metabolism of a race horse.

  • It does this by reducing the amount of sex hormone-binding globulin in the body.

Not really sure what that means, but that is what it does. It will burn your fat at a massive speed!

Can You Build Muscle With Winstrol?

You can definitely build muscle with winstrol. It’s a freaking steroid!

As previously mentioned, using winstrol will make you look hard and ripped. 

“One thing you would definitely need to do in order to grow muscle with winstrol, is to work out! You have to hit the gym, and eat properly.”

Nasty Acne!

You guessed it! The first side effect of using Winny is getting acne all over your body.

“The main reason winstrol and steroids in general cause acne, is because they cause hormonal changes in the body.”

It’s similar to a girl being on her period and taking birth control.

Steroids cause a significant increase in gland activity and that produces more acne!

You will just have to take your chances if you are set on taking this drug.

You Can Go BALD!

Losing your hair is expected when you get on the juice!

  • The funny thing is, you will get hair in places that you don’t want, and you will lose hair in places that you want hair, like your head!

Hair loss occurs because steroids and winstrol will increase your body’s levels of DHT. And this of course, causes hair loss!


You heard it right! Your skin can change color when you are using winstrol, and also other steroids! 

  • Taking these drugs can make your face puffy, turn it red, or even cause your skin to get yellow!

Steroids cause inflammation in the body that is not natural, and depending on your genetics, you can react to it in many different ways.

You Can Grow Man BOOBS!

  • Your body already produces testosterone.

Once you start taking testosterone unnaturally, your body stops producing natural testosterone.

When you stop taking winstrol, your body will start producing estrogen, which is a female hormone that grows breasts.

In order to prevent this from happening, you would have to do a post cycle treatment with estrogen blockers!

“Not a fun thing to do, to say the least.”

Your Sex Drive Will Significantly Decrease!

Since your body no longer needs to produce natural testosterone, your balls have nothing to do!

  • So what happens? They shrink and you lose sex drive!

You Will Not Retain Water!

If you have ever taken other steroids before, you know that many of them make you retain a lot of water.

Improves Overall Endurance

The steroid is very popular with athletes that are involved in endurance sports.

Why? Because winstrol improves the production of red blood cells in the body.

  • This of course is a huge benefit when it comes to cardiovascular endurance.

This is because red blood cells carry oxygen to the muscles, and allow them to do straining activity for long periods of time.

Winstrol definitely lowers the amount of SHBG in the body.

  • This makes it possible to stack steroids in a cycle without needing to lower dosages. Aren’t you getting excited!

Watch Your Liver Toxicity!

This is a steroid that will take a toll on your liver for sure!

  • As time goes on and you continue taking winstrol, the more damage will be done on your liver!

Do some research on appropriate dosages for beginners, its very important!

Paying attention to the length of the cycle is also important.

“You can not stay on this steroid or any other steroid indefinitely! It will cause severe damage and side effects!”

Hare are some other tips to take into consideration, if you are stupid enough to get on the juice!

  • Do not take any other steroids orally while you are taking winstrol! This is something that would just be way too much strain on your liver!
  • If anything, injectables are safer and will cause less damage. Neither one are a good idea, but if you must, you should inject!
  • Try to stay away from drinking alcoholic beverages. Alcohol is very tough on your liver as is, and adding steroids to this mix is very dangerous and can lead to death! Severe liver damage can lead to liver failure and death.
  • Drink plenty of water. This steroid is known to dehydrate you, and take out all of the water that you were retaining.
  • Buy supplements that will assist with your liver recovery. 
  • Take breaks between cycles. Giving your body a break from steroids is not easy, since you get so addicted to them, but it’s a must! You have to take time off! Otherwise, you can simply expect to end up in the hospital.


Taking steroids is very dangerous, and you should stay away from them!

  • The consequences are far greater than the short term benefits of getting bigger biceps.

You risk jail time, death, violence, and severe physical issues that might very well be irreversible!
