Where to Buy
Serving Size: 1 capsule
Servings per Container: 60
Amount per Serving:
4-chloro-17a-methyl,androst-1, 4-dien 3-17b-diol 25mg (Halovar)
2a, 17a dimethyl-etiocholan-3-one, 17b-ol 15mg (Superdrol)
Other Ingredients: Maltodextrin, Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide.
Well, it's got a cool looking bottle, and I like the name....
Supdrol... what to say. Some folks use it, get huge, and see nary a side. Others use it and end up feeling like walking death.
Halovar has a more copacetic reputation, being one of the recommended prohormones for first timers. For the most part, users report decent gains with few sides.
Both of these are methylated and have the potential to be liver toxic on their own. Added together the potentil is increased.
As far as dosage goes, I think one a day would be too weak for all except the most neophyte, while 2 a day would be to strong for all except the most experienced or those clocking in around 250lbs of bodyweight.
My standard caveat when it comes to take any sort of preformulated stack: run a cycle of each active ingredient in the stack at the stack dosage and see how you react to it before you start combining compounds.
Have a pro-grade PCT in place here and take your liver supps. I dont' see many users wanting to go longer than 4 weeks max on this one.
2a-17a-di-methyl-etiocholan-3-one,17b-ol (Superdrol)Yet another nomenclature for Superdrol.
2a,17a-di-methyl-etiocholan-3-one,17b-ol and 2a,17a-dimethyl-17b-hydroxy-5a-androstan-3-one are the same exact compounds written differently. They are both methylated at the 2a and 17a positions, both have a hydroxyl (alcohol, -OH) group at the 17b potion, and a ketone at position three. Just one attempts to use the term etiocholan, which isn't used too often.
A derivative of Drostanolon which is the 2-methylated form of DHT, so it has typically been used for reducing body-fat and water retention, while increasing muscle hardness and density. There should be no estrogen conversion with this compound, because it's 5a-reduced and A-ring alkylated on top of that. Also, the parent compound is used exclusively as an anti-neoplastic for metastatic breast cancer, so it's a strong anti-e with mild diuretic effects.
Has an extremely favorable Q (anabolic/androgenic) ratio. Q ratio = 20 (m-1-t is between 5-16, depending on assay). 20% as androgenic as 17a-MT oral (the reference standard); (m-1-t is 100-220% as androgenic as 17a-MT, for comparison). Superdrol is 400-800% as anabolic as the reference standard (17a-MT); (m-1-t is 910-1600% comparatively). The low androgenic profile of Superdrol will keep (androgenic) side-effects to a minimum.
Some users complain of delayed gyno up to 6 months after a good PCT. It's effective at 20mg, and usually provides very dry lean mass gains. Strength gains are moderate, but not usually maintainable post cycle. A very harsh compound, and should not be taken lightly. A good PCT and support supplement regime is essential.

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.

Magnesium StearateMagnesium stearate is often used as a diluent in the manufacture of medical tablets, capsules and powders. In this regard, the substance is also useful, because it has lubricating properties, preventing ingredients from sticking to manufacturing equipment during the compression of chemical powders into solid tablets.
Magnesium stearate is the most commonly used lubricant for tablets. Studies have shown that magnesium stearate may affect the release time of the active ingredients in tablets, but not that it reduces the over-all bioavailability of those ingredients.

MaltodextrinMaltodextrin is a polysaccharide that is used as a food additive. It is produced from starch by partial hydrolysis and is usually found as a creamy-white hygroscopic spraydried powder. Maltodextrin is easily digestible, being absorbed as rapidly as glucose, and might be either moderately sweet or almost flavorless. It is commonly used for the production of natural sodas and candy.
Silicon Dioxide (Silica)The chemical compound silicon dioxide, also known as silica, is an oxide of silicon. Silica is most commonly found in nature as sand or quartz.
Silica is common additive in the production of foods, where it is used primarily as a flow agent in powdered foods, or to absorb water in hygroscopic applications. It is the primary component of diatomaceous earth which has many uses ranging from filtration to insect control. It is also the primary component of rice husk ash which is used, for example, in filtration and cement manufacturing.
