S-Drol, also known as Superdrol, is a synthetic anabolic steroid that was first introduced in the mid-2000s as a dietary supplement. It was initially marketed as a legal alternative to the anabolic androgenic steroid Masteron (drostanolone) and is being researched for its potential in bodybuilding supplementation.[R]
Superdrol gained popularity among researchers due to its reported ability to promote lean muscle mass, strength, and athletic performance. However, it was later banned by the FDA due to its potential health risks, including liver toxicity and other serious side effects. It is important to note that the use of S-Drol or any anabolic steroid without a prescription and medical supervision is illegal and dangerous.
It is important to note that S-Drol is still not recommended for human consumption and is deemed unsafe. It should only be used for research studies to determine its efficacy. Behemoth Labz provides information on S-Drol for research purposes only.

How Does Superdrol Work?
Methyldrostanolone is a modified version of Drostanolone, functioning as the active steroidal hormone in this compound. Specifically, it contains a methyl group at the 2nd and 17th carbon ranking, resulting in increased anabolic effects and a rating of 400.
The effects of Superdrol are similar to those of other anabolic substances like steroids or SARMs. It mimics the actions of testosterone, a male sex hormone known for its anabolic effects that stimulate anabolism.
Superdrol works by binding to the androgen receptors in muscles and activating androgen signaling, which leads to increased protein synthesis. This metabolic process supports the production of proteins, which contribute to muscle recovery and an increase in muscle mass.[R]
Sdrol has a high anabolic-to-androgenic ratio, which means that it is more effective at promoting muscle growth than it is at causing androgenic side effects such as acne, hair loss, and voice deepening.
There is very limited research on the potential benefits of Superdrol (Sdrol) as it has been banned by the FDA due to its potential health risks. However, some studies have suggested that Sdrol may have anabolic and anti-catabolic effects, which means it may promote muscle growth and prevent muscle breakdown.
Increased Muscle Mass
Studies have shown that Superdrol promotes a positive nitrogen balance within muscle cells. This means that the more nitrogen our muscles hold, the higher the rates of protein synthesis.
As a result, Superdrol can increase the rates of protein synthesis, which encourages the recovery and repair of damaged muscle tissue, as well as the creation of new, larger, and stronger muscle protein tissues.[R]
Superdrol and Recovery
Recovery is a critical aspect of any training regimen because if muscles are not recovering optimally, they are not growing. In fact, they are being broken down.
When this happens, the body enters a catabolic state, causing a loss in muscle mass. As a result, muscles may not perform at their optimal level
Research shows Superdrol may potentially increase recovery rates, resulting in improved muscle size and strength.[R]
An often overlooked potential benefit of using Superdrol is its ability to enhance athletic performance.
Superdrol promotes an increase in the production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen and nutrients to cells for energy. The more oxygen and nutrients cells receive, the more efficient and energetic they become. Similarly, training at high altitudes can increase red blood cell production, superdrol is being researched for the same effect.
By enhancing red blood cell production, Superdrol can potentially provide muscles with more fuel, boosting energy levels, and improving overall muscle efficiency, resulting in enhanced athletic performance.[R]
Potential Side Effects
Superdrol, like many other anabolic steroids, can lead to a number of side effects that users should be aware of. These include:
Superdrol can cause a spike in blood pressure, leading to hypertension, which can result in serious health issues such as heart disease, stroke, heart attack, and renal failure.
Superdrol is known to cause liver damage, a common problem associated with oral steroids. Subjects with pre-existing liver issues should avoid using Superdrol or any other oral steroids.[R]
While Superdrol does not aromatize, some subjects may experience mild gynecomastia and sensitive nipples. This happens because the steroid increases SHBG activity, leading to more free testosterone being converted into estrogen.[R]
Elevated cholesterol levels
Superdrol use has been found to increase the levels of LDL cholesterol, which is associated with blocked arteries, hypertension, stroke, heart disease, and heart attack.
Low testosterone levels
Like most anabolic compounds, Superdrol can suppress the natural production of testosterone in the body, and in severe cases, shut it down completely.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is Superdrol Legal?
Superdrol is not a legal substance. In 2012, it was added to the US-controlled substances list and classified as a Schedule III controlled substance.
Superdrol vs Dianabol
Comparing Superdrol to Dianabol, they are both oral steroids used to potentially gain mass and lean muscle mass. The main difference between them is that Dianabol aromatizes while Superdrol does not. As a result, Superdrol does not cause water retention. However, Superdrol is more androgenic, which may lead to more hair loss and acne.
Does it require post-cycle therapy?
It is important to note that many subjects may experience low natural levels of testosterone after finishing a Superdrol cycle, with some requiring testosterone replacement therapy. Therefore, it is critical to undergo post-cycle therapy (PCT) after every Superdrol cycle.
