Turinabol – Cholorodehydromethyltestosterone, in short CDMT, is an oral substitute. The brand name of this steroid is Oral Turinabol or simply Turinabol. Tbol is an oral androgenic anabolic steroid (AAS). It first came available on the market back in the 1960s. As with many other anabolic steroids, production was halted back in the 1990s.
Intermediate users: 50-80mg a day. Advanced users or professional bodybuilders: minimum of 80-100mg a day, though some may take more than this. General medical dosage: 5-10mg per day. Female medical dosage: 1mg each day, though can exceed 2.5mg daily.
It maintains its ‘anabolic’ state. Usually weight training destroys the muscles. The use of the anabolic steroid Turinabol increases the protein synthesis, so the trained muscles are protected. That’s what the testosterone hormone is doing in the body.
CMDT was developed by a pharmaceutical company in Germany called Jenapharm. They got patent of this product in 1961. A German Chemist got the idea to combine 4-Cholorotestosterone and Methandienone, which resulted in a surprising result.
The drug was used clinically from 1965 to 1994, to a great extent. Mainly, the athletes used this drug to enhance their performance in the Olympics. However, it is a controlled drug in many countries. It has a half-life of 16 hours.
Structurally, Turinabol is a cross between two anabolic steroids: Dianabol and Clostebol. Turinabol has the same base structure as Dianabol, but also contains the added chlorine atom at the fourth carbon, which is the unique feature of Clostebol.
Overall, these structural alterations make Turinabol a milder cousin of Dianabol, as it exerts no estrogenic side effects (such as gynecomastia) and, in general, is less androgenic (or masculinising) (Llewellyn, 2011).
