Dht and derived steroid duration
I was wondering how long it takes to see the strength effects of halo and how long they will last. I know that with compounds like mdht (mestanolone) strength gains are lost after a few weeks due to deactivation of dht. Since Halo is dht derived will it also be deactivated? How about furazabol which has a structure to winny?

Unfortunately there is a control mechanism for DHT in the human body. When levels get too high, the 3alpha hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase enzyme converts it to a mostly inactive compound known as 3-alpha (5-alpha-androstan-3alpha,17beta-diol), a prohormone if you will. It can equally convert back to DHT by way of the same enzyme when low levels of DHT are detected.
No, because DHT derived hormones are not DHT, they differ structurally, which is why they are not deactivated, but stay active in muscle. With the exception of mesterolone and mestanolone.
halo by the way, is not a DHT-derivative. It is a delta4 steroid that 5alpha reduces.
Lastly, halo's effects on strength and agression are likely mediated by its anti-glucocorticoid effect, and likely would not follow suit with typical androgenic strength enhancers like mestanolone.
Good things come to those who weight.

Halo's strength gains fade with time ,i've found.After 2 weeks or so i start feeling normal again and only the strange temper remains.
I really think it's no use for any longer than that and that strength gain from Anadrol for example is much better because not only is it CNS-related but there's actually quite some muscle mass growth happening ,that combined with the water and clucogen stores increasing and better leverages is hard to beat.
MDHT didn't do much for me either.Perhaps very strong androgens work better on overtrained or great volume routines because of their CNS stimulating and recovering abilities ? Tren Also gave me minimal strength gains (did rip me up though) as opposed to drol or Dbol or even Tbol and winny. Or perhaps that's just me.
