Its no secret, anabolic androgenic steroids are very commonly counterfeited and often the more popularity a particular steroid holds the more often counterfeit product will exist. Winstrol pills, while not the most commonly counterfeited are definitely up there on the list. It is very common for an individual to make a purchase and receive Dianabol rather than the Stanozolol hormone he ordered. This occurs due to Methandrostenolone (the hormone that makes Dianabol) powder being very cheap. Many labs will simply manufacture Dianabol, label it Winstrol and sell it to you and for the newbie especially, as he will get stronger with Dianabol he wont have a clue that hes bought a bogus product; after all, hes receiving gains, simply not the right ones. For this reason it is important to always have assurance in your source and never make such a purchase from a random individual.
"Steroid" is the name given to a chemical compound with a specific structure. In everyday speech, the term steroid is applied to several medications that share this structure; however, these medications have very different uses. Anabolic steroids are a class of drug that mimic the effects of male sex hormones called androgens which stimulate muscle growth and secondary male sex characteristics. They are often abused by bodybuilders and other athletes to build muscle mass and so should be used with caution. When prescribed, oral steroids should be taken as directed. If you come across extra pills that haven't been taken, and are unsure if they are steroids, you can identify the pill based on its physical appearance, information on the bottle, or by consulting a professional.
