4-Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, sold under the brand name Turanabol, is an anabolic steroid developed in the 1960s, a highly competitive time for the Olympics and national level sports, the East German experts were looking for effective steroids that would circumvent these sports drug testing policies. What they settled on was the methylated version of 4-chlorotestosterone, also called Oral Turanabol. Oral Turanabol is often described as having properties somewhere between Dianabol, and Anavar. With its moderate anabolic effects, and mild-ish side effects, this isn't a bad description. Turanabol displays anabolic tendencies that are approximately equal to or slightly greater than those of testosterone, while exhibiting little or no androgenic activity.
Because of this slower rate of gain, people who take Turanabol should not expect weight, strength or muscle mass to increase dramatically, but the muscle and strength they do gain will be a quality gain. People report that Turanabol gives a nice hard look because it lacks the estrogenic properties which can lead to an undesirable puffy look.
One of the other benefits of Turanabol stems from why the East Germans were able to use it undetected for a while: The body quickly breaks it down and excretes it which might make it beneficial for those who will be undergoing drug screening.
Because of the 4-chloro alteration, Oral Turanabol can't interact with the aromatase enzyme, so estrogenic side effects aren't really a concern. However, it is interesting to note that some users report mild gynocomastia with oral turanabol alone. Whether this is due to the aromatization of a small amount of methyltestosterone left over from the manufacturing process, or Oral Turanabol possibly having a small amount of direct action at the estrogen receptor, is unclear. The 4-chloro alteration also prevents Oral Turanabol from interacting with the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, so conversion to a dihydro form is not possible. Even so, androgenic allopecia is still possible with higher doses eg (>40mg/day), and not surprisingly, some erectile dysfunction will be present when Oral Turanabol is used alone despite a functional, or highly functional sex drive. Although mild acne, gas, indigestion, elevated liver enzymes, diminished production of leutinizing hormone, and natural testosterone, are all worth noting, the most serious concern is the effect it has on the blood lipid profile.
Regardless of dosage amounts and length of regimens, Turanabol has one characteristic that should give caution to all of its users: It is 17-alpha alkylated which makes it hepatotoxic because it can't be easily broken down in the liver. Although some studies show liver enzymes to stay within normal ranges on a dose of ten milligrams per day, people using Oral Turanabol should keep usage limited to about six weeks to avoid liver damage. Additionally, Turanabol can lower the bloods ability to clot, so special caution should be taken when using this steroid.
While Oral Turanabol has its pros and cons, it does produce quality gains in muscle mass as well as strength, even if these gains are not as dramatic or quick as you might get from an aromatizable, or more androgenic oral steroid.
