Drostanolone is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, most specifically 2alpha-methyldihydrotestosterone. As a result, the structure of this steroid is that of a moderate anabolic/potent androgen which does not aromatize to estrogen.
Water retention and gynecomastia therefore do not come into play with this drug. Drostanolone may in fact exhibit anti-estrogenic activity in the body, competing with other substrates for binding to aromatase.
Since the propionate ester is used with this compound, injections need to be repeated at least every 3 or 4 days in order to maintain a consistent level of hormone in the blood
Drostanolone is indicated for the management of the anemia of renal insufficiency and has been shown to increase hemoglobin and red cell mass. Surgically induced anephric patients have been reported to be less responsive.
The basic benefits of Drostanolone -Propionate are relatively simple; a leaner and harder physique. It is important to note this level of hardness in-which it can provide will not be of a significant nature if a physique has a thick layer of fat covering it; yes, this steroid will promote fat loss to a degree but it will not on its own make a fat physique ripped to the bone.
Most of the side-effects caused by anabolic steroids are due to the aromatase effect and as we’ve discussed Drostanolone -Propionate does not aromatize, therefore making side-effects such as Gynecomastia and water retention no concern.
