Servings Per Container: 60

Amount Per Serving:
4-chloro-17a-methyl-androsta-1,4-diene-3,17-diol 25mg

Bottle recommended dosage: 1 capsule 2x/day with meals. Do not exceed recommended dosage. Do not take for more than 6 weeks continuously without at least a 4-week break.

So what exactly is this compound? Let's look, mmmkay?

HD-50: 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androsta-1,4-diene-3,17-diol
Halovar: 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3,17-diol
Halodrol: 4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3b,17-diol

Now I went ahead and chose the Halovar compound, although from looking above you can see it might be Halodrol, or even something new since is lists 'androsta' not 'androst'.

In any case, I suspect the 'androsta' is a typo and that his is indeed a Halovar/Halodrol clone. In fact, Purus labs indicates they are the same thing.

Halodrol/Halovar is a methylated designer steroid. The most popular variant seems to be 4-Chloro-17a-Methyl-Androst-1,4-Diene-3-17b-Diol. Halodrol/Halovar is one of the most popular compounds available is considered good for beginners because of its reputation for minimal side effects and gains that are easy to maintain.

4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3-17b-diol (Halovar)

A clone of Halodrol (4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1, 4-diene-3b,17b-diol)

Halodrol is a 17aa steroid that converts to the steroid oral Turinabol after interaction with 3b-HSD at an estimated rate of about 5%. Because of this low conversion, doses must be higher than other 17aa pro-steroids. However, it is suspected that Halodrol has decent potency without conversion as good results are seen despite the relatively low conversion to Turinabol. Halodrol appears to be about as potent as testosterone, and significantly less androgenic.

Because of the 4-chloro group, halodrol has no progestational effects, it cannot interact with the aromatase enzyme, and it produces inactive 4-chloro-DHT metabolites. This makes androgenic side-effects such as hair loss, high blood pressure, acne and prostate enlargement less likely.

The lack of androgenic potency might be expected to create problems with gyno, however the low SHBG binding affinity has minimal interference with SHBG levels and/or freely circuiting estrogen and testosterone. It does not appear that halodrol has a significant gyno risk.

Because halodrol must be used at such a high dose to see noticeable effects, liver toxicity may become an issue. Therefore it is recommended to use a liver protecting supplement before and during halodrol cycles.

Gains from Halodrol generally take a few weeks to notice, but users can expect solid increases in strength, lean muscle mass, improved vascularity and minimal water retention. This allows some of the gains to be kept after the cycle if good diet and training are continued. Quick dramatic gains in size and strength are not generally noticed with Halodrol.

H-Drol is one of the most popular and proven compounds on the market and is considered good for beginners due to it's reputation for minimal side effects and dry gains that are relatively easy to maintain after the cycle is complete.
