Like other AAS, boldenone is an agonist of the androgen receptor (AR).  The activity of boldenone is mainly anabolic , with a low androgenic potency. Boldenone will increase nitrogen retention, protein synthesis, increases appetite and stimulates the release of erythropoietin in the kidneys.  Boldenone was synthesized in an attempt to create a long-acting injectable metandienone , for androgen deficiency disorders. Boldenone acts similar to metandienone with fewer adverse androgenic effects. [ medical citation needed ] Although commonly compared to nandrolone , boldenone lacks progesterone receptor interaction and associated progestogenic side effects.
Danabol / Dianabol can be combined with, for instance Oxandrolone or Winstrol tablets as well as with injectable steroids such as Sustanon or Testosterone enanthate.
Women should not use dianabol because considerable virilization symptoms can occur.
Although dianabol has many potential side effects, they are rare with a dosage of up to 20 mg./day. Danabol / Dianabol causes a considerable strain on the liver and high dosages or use of over a longer period of time, is liver-toxic. Even a dosage of only 10 mg./day can increase the liver values but after discontinuation of the drug, however, the values return to normal.
While using dianabol high blood pressure and a faster heartbeat can occur which may require the intake of an antihypertensive drug.
Additive intake of Nolvadex and Proviron may be necessary as well, since dianabol strongly converts into estrogens.
