General information about Alphabolin in Belgium
Alphaboline (methenolone enanthate) is the injectable version of the steroid methenolone and, although it produces a weaker effect than Deca-Durabolin, it is a very good basic steroid whose effects are mainly anabolic. The fact that an enanthate ester is added to this steroid allows for slow and gradual release from the injection site. This addition allows for a longer half-life of around 14 days (similar to Testosterone Enanthate) although most athletes prefer to administer it on a weekly basis.
The popularity of methenolone enanthate in Belgium stems from the fact that it is the only steroid that seems to work well on a low calorie diet (making it a pre-choice drug of choice) and side effects are rarely a problem because it is relatively non-toxic, Androgens and it does not convert to estrogen (aromatize) so estrogen related side effects are not an issue. On top of that it seems to have a positive effect on the immune system (hence its popular use in AIDS patients) and the fact that it mainly adds lean mass leads to a strengthening of the whole body system.
Side effects in Belgium
It must be said that Alphabolin (Primobolan) has its side effects, including mild acne, deepening of the voice and increased hair growth (these effects resulting from the residual androgenic effect). However, it displays low liver toxicity and generally has little effect on blood pressure and cholesterol, making it one of the safest injectable anabolic steroids.It is also worth pointing out that the body's own production of testosterone is only reduced when high doses are taken for prolonged periods.
Speaking of dosages, the “safe” dose for men is 100-200mg per week although some bodybuilders have been known to go as high as 600mg/week (and even 800mg). Androgenic effects are inevitably higher at this level but are usually tolerable. A better option is to stack Primobolan with stronger steroids to enhance the effect. Primo, Sustenon 250 and Dianabol is one such stack, which will produce quick gains. Another example is Primo 200mg/week and Deca-Durabolin 200-400mg/week or Primo with Winstrol Depot 200-400mg/week. Although adding additional compounds can increase side effects, Primobolan tends to decrease the harshness of heavier steroids (eg all testosterones) when added to a cycle.
Female athletes can get good results from 100-200mg per week and 50mg of Winstrol Depot can be added (although virilization issues may occur in sensitive individuals). A safer option would probably be 100mg Primobolan with 7.5mg oxandrolone (or oral Winstrol, 10mg), which is a conservative dose for those looking to experiment with anabolics. All in all, when you consider the fact that Primobolan is the only steroid that works on a low calorie diet, builds lean mass, adds hardness and tone, and positive immune system effects, it's easy to See why it is one of the most popular Steroids on the market and has gained something of a 'cult' following over the years.
