Types of steroids
Steroids can be categorized into three main categories:
1. Testosterone and testosterone derivateives.
Steroids such as Dbol, EQ, Tbol, and testosterone fall into this category.
2. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derivatives.
Steroids such as Anadrol, Anavar, Primobolan, Proviron, Masteron, and Winstrol fall into this category.
3. Nandrolone and Nadrolone derivatives
The steroids Deca and NPP are nandrolones. Trenbolone is a nandrolone derivative.
Which are the best for cutting?
The DHT derivatives are by far the best for cutting. DHT derived steroids do not aromatize into estrogen and cause no progestin related activity so side effects like water retention and gynecomastia are impossible. They also carry a high anabolic: androgenic ratio that prevents catabolism in a calorie deficit. Steroids such as Anavar and Primobolan were originally developed to reverse muscle wasting in patients with HIV and cancer.
What are the side effects of DHT derived steroids?
The biggest issue with most DHT derived steroids is liver toxicity. Anadrol, Anavar and Winstrol carry a hepatoxic nature. You can still maintain a healthy liver while using these drugs, but you want to keep the duration of their usage to a maximum of 8 weeks and limit other activities that will put additional stress on the liver when using them.
The second major issue with DHT derived steroids is hair loss. DHT is what promotes hair thinning in men. Steroid users will often take 5-alpha reductase inhibitors such as Finasteride to prevent hair loss on steroid cycles, but those drugs will have no effect on DHT derivatives.
The last common side effect is joint pain and dry joints. Winstrol is particularly bad at causing joint pain in users. A good quality joint supplement based around MSM, glucosamine and chondroitin, and taking fish oil daily will help lubricate the joints and reduce the inflammation and pain.
Yes. Using any exogenous steroid will suppress natural testosterone production and this is no exception.
