Winstrol is a man-made anabolic steroidal molecule mimicking the natural testosterone present in human body (mainly controls the fat metabolism, increases the bone solidity or density, enhances the muscle corpus, strengthens virility).This drug interact with the nuclear receptors and activates protein synthesis. It also leads to increased assemblyof growth hormone, thus explaining the muscle advantagesachieved after the intake of Winstrol.
Winstrol and Sports:
Winstrol is one of the highly utilized anabolic steroid, used in field of sports and bodybuilding since the time it has been discovered. This drug is very popular among the sportsmen. There are many reported cases of athletes using this drug helping them increase their performance, pace, attentiveness, endurance, strength and flexibility. It is used because it enhance the capability of an athlete to train himself more vigorously without getting muscle cramps and lethargy, because it acts as defenseagainst the lactic acid produced due to increased energy demands and lesser oxygen availability, leading to anaerobic respiration. This lactic acid keeps on accumulating in muscles during any cumbersome exercise leading to pain.Winstrol tackle the increased lactic acid by leading boosted production of RBCs, consequently improving the oxygen passage in the cells and eventually increasing the ATP formation, emancipating more energy.It also antagonize the effect of cortisol on the muscle that can lead to disintegration of muscles. At the same time, it has been reported to increase insulin production in the body, balancing the carb intake of the body (uptake of glucose by each cell and processing the aerobic energy cycle). Another benefit of this drug is it avoids water retention, helping excretion of all toxic substituents from the body, provided that the person also drinks a lot of water to facilitate the process.
Nevertheless, even after so many benefits of this drug, it has been banned for use in professional sports. The reason being, it is unethical for other sports men who do not depend upon any such drug for their mental and physical fitness and still try their level best to perform with most strong will and capability they possess to win any sport. All these is regardless of the fact that drugs or steroids like these can or one should say definitely will lead to major side-effects, sometimes even life- threating. Athletes debate that it is the pressure in the form of expectations induced by the people, fierce competition and the urge to stay in it that leads them to doping, so that they can continue their career stress-free getting quick muscle gains and with little bit deceit. These drugs become untraceable after almost 48 hours, thus goes undetected if not tested within 2 days (half-life is low).
Judicious use of Steroids
This drug now being banned for use in professional sports, raises numerous questions on the changing lifestyles of the sportspersons. The use or misuse is merely in the hands of an athlete.Using steroids within limits can help augment the process of muscle strengthening, still an athlete should not entirely and heavily depend upon it for results. Under right supervision, lower doses and with proper intentions, right schedules, supplied with proper balanced diet and fluids, a person can achieve better results devoid of any harm, exploiting the full potential of a human body.
