Alpha Pharma Mastoral (Methyl Drostanolone, 50 pills x 10mg, aka Superdrol) is an anabolic steroid that carries a bit of a unique history compared to many anabolic steroids. Mastoral itself is merely a brand name of an over the counter anabolic steroid sold as a pro hormone or nutritional supplement by Anabolic Extreme. While an anabolic steroid, the active hormone Methyldrostanolone had never been placed on the controlled substance list in the U.S. and in 2005 it would hit the shelves of most major supplement companies and enjoyed massive success. However, in 2006 due to tremendous FDA pressure Mastoral would be discontinued. While the Mastoral brand was short lived, over the counter and black market Methyldrostanolone would continue to appear around the world until mid-2012. In 2012 Methyldrostanolone would be placed on the U.S. controlled substance list and classified as a Schedule III controlled substance along with all anabolic steroids.
Methyldrostanolone or Mastoral, while it did not appear on the market until 2005 is not a new anabolic steroid. Syntex first created the Methyldrostanolone hormone in 1959 at the same time as Drostanolone (Masteron) and Oxymetholone (Anadrol). However, the Methyldrostanolone hormone never received a pharmaceutical push like the other two hormones. The exception would be its inclusion in Dimethazine; a compound that metabolically dissolved and converted to Methyldrostanolone post administration. As we dive into the Mastoral compound, as you may have already guessed we will find it is very similar to Drostanolone or the popular anabolic steroid Masteron.
Mastoral is an anabolic androgenic steroid comprised of the active steroidal hormone Methyldrostanolone. This is a dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroid or more specifically a structurally altered form of Drostanolone. Mastoral is simply the Drostanolone hormone with an added methyl group at the 17th carbon position that allows the hormone to survive oral ingestion and officially classifies it as a C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa) anabolic steroid. It also carries an added methyl group at the carbon two position, which greatly increases its anabolic power. These slight alterations will also reduce Mastoral’s androgenicity compared to Masteron, which isn’t all that androgenic to begin with. This is a non-aromatizing anabolic steroid carrying no estrogenic or progesterone activity.
When looking at the effects of Mastoral, the best way to describe the steroid as is a total body transforming product. Through its marketing campaign it was touted as being a more powerful mass builder than Anadrol, hence the name Mastoral; a play on words “Super Anadrol.” However, athletes who have used both will attest the effects of Mastoral will in no way lead to mass gains even comparable to Anadrol. However, significant gains in lean tissue can be made so as long as adequate calories are consumed. A gain of 5-10lbs is more than possible and will not be accompanied by the water retention Anadrol often brings. The individual should also find he is able to make cleaner off-season gains due to the effects of Mastoral promoting a stronger metabolism. This is not to say body fat cannot be gained, but you should be able to make better use of your caloric surplus when Mastoral is in play.
The effects of Mastoral can also be very beneficial to the dieting athlete as a cutting steroid. This compound will greatly preserve lean tissue during a caloric deficit, a key component to successful dieting. In order to lose body fat we must burn more calories than we consume. This puts lean tissue at risk as the body will take what it needs to meet its energy demands from anywhere it can get it. Due to the body’s natural survival instinct, it will often take energy from muscle tissue rather than body fat. The key to successful dieting is ensuring that not only is fat lost but the lean tissue we hold is preserved. The effects of Mastoral will ensure this goal is met. Through the effects of Mastoral the individual should also notice greatly improved conditioning in terms of a dryer, harder look. This isn’t all that surprising when we consider this steroid is in many ways oral Masteron, a steroid well known for promoting such traits.
Standard male Mastoral doses will fall in the 10-20mg per day range for 6-8 weeks. This will equate to 1-2 capsules per day taken with food. Those who enjoy a high level of toleration can consider 30mg per day their next go around with the steroid, but this is not advised for most. Doses of 30mg per day or more will greatly stress the liver and caution is strongly advised.
Mastoral stacks well with most all anabolic steroid. A simple stack of Mastoral and some form of testosterone is most common and will greatly benefit any bulking or cutting plan. During bulking phases, additional Nandrolone is a very common part of the stack, as is Trenbolone during a cutting phase. There is no reason any man could not enjoy success with such plans.
