Halotestin (fluoxymesterone ) is an anabolic and androgenic steroid. Produced in tablet form. Most often, halotestin is used to increase aggression, muscle density and strength without increasing muscle mass. Halotestin is popular among weight class athletes and endurance athletes. Despite the sufficient distribution of the drug, the mechanism of its action has not yet been fully investigated. At the moment, the main version involves non-prescription effects.
Medically, the steroid has been used to treat delayed puberty, male hypogonadism, and breast cancer in women. To date, medicine has abandoned halotestin dosage.
Steroid profile of Halotestin
Anabolic effect – 1900% of testosterone.
Androgenic effect – 850% t of testosterone.
The level of conversion to estrogens – no aromatization.
The level of exposure to the liver is high toxicity.
The impact on the axis of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testicles is pronounced.
Release form – tablets, oral administration.
Duration of action – up to 9 hours.
Detection time on doping control – up to 2 months.
In terms of its chemical structure, halotestin steroid shares similarities with methyltestosterone , but is approximately five times more potent than the latter. Fluoxymesterone is a chemically modified testosterone in three positions:
9-fluoro group. Increasing the androgenic effect of the drug by reducing the reduction in the 5-alpha position (the formation of dihydrotestosterone). The 9-fluoro group is found in small amounts in human blood. This active form of fluoxymesterone binds much stronger than testosterone to androgen receptors in muscle tissue and organs.
11-beta-hydroxy group. Prevention of enzymatic conversion of the molecule through the attachment of aromatic rings, i.e., prevention of conversion to estrogen. Also, the 11-beta-hydroxy group is credited with blocking prolactin and estrogen receptors, that is, preventing the occurrence of edema, excess body fat and gynecomastia.
17 alpha methyl group. Prolongation of the half-life of the drug when administered orally, maintaining the concentration of the active substance in the blood and preventing destruction during the first passage through the liver.
The action of Fluoxymesterone
Increase in aggression.
Increasing the hardness and relief of the muscles.
A slight increase in muscle mass is possible (especially with prolonged use).
Stimulation of hemoglobin synthesis (increased endurance). Taking Fluoxymesterone helps to increase the oxygen mass of the blood. The body produces more red blood cells more oxygen is delivered to the muscles. Productivity increases, acidification decreases.
Reduction of body fat. According to studies, halotestin side effects accelerates the oxidation of fatty acids in “fast” muscle fibers. True, weight loss is never the main goal of taking Fluoxymesterone due to its high toxicity. The effect is rather secondary.
How to take Halotestin
The course of Fluoxymesterone is a rarity. Most often, the drug is used pointwise, immediately before the competition. The optimal dosage of the steroid is 10 milligrams per day, the limit is 20. It is advisable to use Halotestin for a short-term increase in aggression and speed-strength indicators.
As for how to take Halotestin in combination with other AAS, the combinations have almost no advantages. The use of steroids by women is not recommended.
Given the high rate of formation of dihydrotestosterone, the side effects of Fluoxymesterone are as follows: adenoma and prostate hyperplasia. The steroid is very powerful and toxic to the liver. Experimental studies have established that Halotestin is superior in anabolic effects to testosterone, in androgenic – in 8.5. It is necessary to use a steroid only after passing the tests and consulting with a specialist.
Reviews about Halotestin
Almost all athletes who take a steroid leave reviews of Fluoxymesterone as an AAS that is toxic to the liver. The information of athletes is confirmed by scientific studies that have revealed active processes of degradation of liver cells on the course.
As for the increase in strength indicators, an increase in the hardness and relief of the muscles, as well as an increase in aggression, then the reviews about Halotestin are positive. All athletes experienced a pronounced effect.
