Introduction to Halotestin
Halotestin is a derivative of methyltestosterone. This is an insanely powerful steroid with an anabolic rating of 1900 and an androgenic rating of 850. Perhaps we should first compare this steroid with testosterone just so we can give you an idea of just how potent it is. Testosterone has an anabolic rating of 100. At 1900, Halotestin is 19 times more potent than testosterone! Now, take a moment and imagine just how much you can achieve with such a compound. And guess what? That’s not all. At 850, Halotestin is 8.5 times more androgenic than testosterone!
These insane numbers show just how powerful Halotestin is and explains why it remains so popular in the bodybuilding industry. Even when compared to other anabolic steroids in the market, Halotestin still performs really well. Take for instance Trenbolone, a well-known steroid considered by many as the strongest anabolic steroid in the market. The numbers show that Halotestin is stronger than Tren!
Halotestin can, therefore, deliver even the wildest of bodybuilding outcomes in the shortest time possible. But as you can already tell, this kind of steroid is not meant for the faint-hearted. This is the sort of substance that only the most experienced and advanced steroid users can utilize. Any newbie starting off their journey in the insane world that is anabolic steroids would be staring at death in the face if the first compound they use is Halotestin and this is regardless of how low they try to keep the doses.
Here is the thing about anabolic steroids guys. The stronger the compound, the better the results and the faster you will receive them. We all know that. But something else about steroids is that adverse reactions become more and get extremely dangerous as you escalate from mild to the strongest steroids. Sadly, halotestin is up there amongst the strongest, and hence you can already imagine just how brutal and unpleasant the effects will be. I mean, steroids with much lower anabolic and androgenic ratings are known to cause severe liver damage and other heart issues; what will a compound twice or even three times anabolic and androgenic do to your heart and liver?!
Anyway, we all know that there is still a significant demand for the compound and that’s why it is still available in the black market. So, we will do our due diligence and educate you on what Halotestin is all about. This information should really be eye-opening and help you make a wise decision on whether the steroid is right for you or not.
What is Halotestin?
Halotestin is an anabolic androgenic steroid that was first developed in the 1950s under the name Fluoxymesterone. The drug was developed for medical purposes where it was effectively used for the treatment of various ailments including malnutrition, paraplegia, breast cancer in females, muscle wasting disorders, prolonged exposure to cortisone, burns and to heal bone fractures. Halotestin was also used in men to treat andropause and hypogonadism disorders.
In the late 1980s, the FDA started a crackdown on anabolic steroids, and this saw its use in the medical sector reduce significantly. New and better drugs for treating the above conditions were also developed and hence physicians no longer had to prescribe this potentially dangerous steroid. A few countries still use the drug for the treatment of osteoporosis in post-menopause women, breast cancer in women and androgen deficiency in men.
However, the ban didn’t stop the vast majority of men in the fitness community to stop using the compound. Its potency in bodybuilding was just too luring to be ignored. This is why the compound is still available in the black market.
Benefits of Using Halotestin
Most bodybuilders use Halostetin when preparing for a competition. This powerful anabolic steroid provides lots of energy and strength that you can use to get the ideal final touches you desperately need. Other than that, Halostetin will also help to bring out your muscles more. The fat covering your muscles will disappear giving you the perfect ripped physique.
That brings us to the next benefit of using Halotestin; fat loss; Halotestin is used in cutting cycles because it helps in getting rid of all the extra fat around your body. The fat deposits will be broken down, and this provides you with the fuel you need to continue working out. But that’s not the main benefit of the fat loss caused by this steroid. The most exciting outcome here will be the muscle definition that you will witness. Halo does an incredible job of removing excess fat while protecting and enhancing muscle growth and results are nothing short of stunning.
It should, however, be noted that Halostetin won’t have a very significant impact if the user has substantial fat deposits. Such individuals are better off looking for another substance to use alongside Halotestin. A lot of the people who get the best cutting outcomes after using this steroid are usually already a bit lean. Otherwise, studies have shown that individuals with a body fat of more than 6% won’t see a very large outcome if they use Halostetin alone.
We should also tell you that Halotestin will boost your energy and strength levels and promote fat loss, but it doesn’t do a lot when it comes to gaining muscle mass. This is why the steroid is mostly used for doing final touches to one’s physique after a proper bulking cycle. Therefore, if bulking is your primary objective, you will need to look for other alternatives
What are the Side Effects of Using Halotestin?
As we established earlier on, Halotestin is a potent anabolic androgenic steroid, and this comes at a price.
The first issue about this steroid is liver toxicity. Remember that Halotestin is a C17-aa steroid available for oral administration and this tends to put a lot of stress on one’s liver. Studies have shown that doses as little as 20mg per day are more than enough to strain your liver and this can escalate into other life-threatening conditions. It’s for this reason that users are advised to use this steroid with other liver-supporting medications such as UDCA or TUDCA.
Halotestin will also interfere with your cholesterol levels. The steroid will reduce the levels of good cholesterol HDL and increase harmful cholesterol LDL. This leads to severe conditions such as arteriosclerosis and other cardiovascular issues. The higher the doses, the higher the risk. The drug should, therefore, be used within the right doses and never should you use the steroid for a prolonged period.
The use of Halotestin will suppress or completely shut down the production of natural endogenous testosterone. This is as a result of the steroid stimulating a negative feedback loop in your Hypothalamic Pituitary Testicular Axis. Suppression of natural testosterone production will become a very serious issue once you stop taking the steroid. That’s because your body will no longer be producing enough testosterone to sustain various functions including your sex drive, erections, mood, etc. Low testosterone levels will also result in fat gain and loss of muscle. Halotestin users are advised to go through PCT for 4 to 6 weeks after completing their cycle. This should help in repairing and getting your testosterone production back on track.
Halostetin is a strong androgenic steroid, and this puts the user at serious risk of side effects such as acne breakout, oily skin, facial hair growth, baldness, and benign prostatic hypertrophy. Individuals who are sensitive to androgenic compounds are at an even higher risk of suffering these adverse reactions. Aggression levels may also increase significantly.
Using Halotestin can also result in:
- Change in skin color
How to Use Halotestin
Halotestin is best used in the final weeks of a cutting cycle. Most people typically use it in the last 2-4 weeks although some individuals may stretch it to 8 weeks this is very dangerous.
Typical dosages range from 10 to 20 mg per day. If you demonstrate good tolerance, you can increase the dosage to between 30 to 40mg per day. Halotestin has a short half-life of around 7 hours. Therefore, the dose should be broken down to two one taken in the morning and the other late in the evening. For best results, Halo should be taken half an hour before workouts.
Halotestin is a powerful steroid, but it is not meant for everyone. Most beginners and even intermediate fitness enthusiasts cannot handle this steroid and the few advanced bodybuilders who take it put their lives at serious risk. It is therefore advisable to avoid the steroid altogether and look for safer and legal alternatives.
