Last edited by massatronic; Jan at Ben Johnson and Furazabol I believe that was an east german designer drug from the late 60's, along with turinabol.
German runners were on it all year round. Ben Johnson and Furazabol generic name mitolan sp.? Ben Johnson and Furazabol Turinabol is a separate substance although both drugs were popular with Eastern European athletes.
Neither Charlie Francis nor the doctor claim to have administered winstrol. Ben should have been clean. The doctor began using furazabol obtained from Europe and changed labels on the bottles supposedly so that there would be no leak of information to the American team about what drugs they were using.
The doctor was supplying a number of Canadian athletes none of whom tested positive. He goes on to say that he suspected Ben might have been lying when he asked him if he had taken anything else besides what was being perscribed. From what I have heard, Charlie Francis had a reputation for the ability to train champions on lower dosages relative to his competition kind of a shame that he's banned from coaching for life - maybe Ben took a look at one of the labels and went out and got winstrol on his own to up his dosage and guarantee a victory.
Maybe he even intended to get Furazabol and ended up getting a counterfeit with winstrol instead fairly similar in effect except that Furazabol wasn't tested for and winstrol was. We will never know. Ben Johnson and Furazabol Furazabol profile courtesy of big cat bb. Its similar in appearance in that it's a DHT molecule with a alpha-methyl group for oral availability, and has no 3-keto group, needed for androgenic binding. But instead of a 2,3-pyrazol group, furazabol has a 2,3-furazan group.
The difference may not be all that big, both groups contain 2 nitrogen atoms and 2 double bonds and both are present instead of the 3-keto group. The advantage is that its not readily deactivated and therefore whatever influences it has, they are consistent. The downside is that the lack of a 3-keto group, which will impair its overall androgenic potency. So in that aspect again comparable to stanozolol. Anabolics , without a doubt the best reference guide for steroids in print, lists Furazabol as extremely androgenic however, which is no doubt just an oversight.
In nearly every way the behaviour of furazabol would be identical to that of Stanozolol. It's an obscure steroid, that's the least we can say. Its only manufactured in Japan and in tabs of 1 mg.
Low availability makes the cost of this steroid rather high, and its not particularly easy to find. The higher doses being the preference. The only benefit of its obscurity is that noone will invest in faking it. So if you do come across Furazabol, you have pretty good odds that the stuff is legit.
Now, the literature does not make a whole lot of mention of furazabol, but from what I was able to find1, it supports the weak nature of the steroid. In one case it was found that furazabol was a good treatment for hyperlipemia, and this without affecting proteinuria the prevention of excretion of amino acids, where one would expect a steroid to increase proteinuria and not effect hyperlipemia. The low androgen binding may explain the lack of effect it had on proteinuria.
The doses used were considerably high though, at least for furazabol. It is not estrogenic in anyway, on account of its dihydro structure and its lack of estrogenic action and low androgenic binding make it have fairly little influence on the body's own testosterone production.
Much like Winstrol stanozolol and Anavar oxandrolone. In the long run suppression will occur of course, but because it occurs much slower a user will suffer less from testicular atrophy and therefore bounce back easier when a cycle is concluded. There is a slim chance of androgenic risk, as with Winstrol, but its not frequent or severe. So acne, increased body and facial hair and even an aggravation of male pattern hair loss can occur, but it's a lot less likely than with more androgenic specimen.
Furazabol is a alpha-alkylated steroid, and therefore has a level of hepatoxicity. In the interest of protecting your liver, you should not extend use beyond weeks maximum. It's a mild steroid with no estrogenic activity, so logically its best used when cutting in stacks with Equipoise boldenone undecylenate , Finaplix trenbolone acetate or Primobolan methenolone enanthate and the needed fat-burners of course.
Unlike most steroids, this drug has a relatively short half-life2 however. But on account of the low half-life time, you may want to consider splitting doses in two each day. Because it doesn't aromatize and doesn't have a strong androgenic component, the use of ancillary drugs is limited. The use of Clomid or Nolvadex after a cycle is certainly advised, though the merit may be rather limited.
There is no need for anti-estrogens or blood pressure medication during the cycle. I think IP makes one too. Ben Johnson and Furazabol good read madcow, but i cant hit ya back till its your turn again. Ben Johnson and Furazabol It is readily available in china in powder form and I know a few UGs carry it on a limited basis. That's a good read above. Another compound to add that's good to add on a hardening cycle.
