Anabolicum vister is an oral steroid produced only in Italy. It is administered in an unusual form since it is either taken as a capsule or in drops. The latter type of administration is not used by athletes. In schools of medicine Anabolicum vister is used primarily in treating of the elderly, in particular women after menopause, and for the treatment of general diseases and symptoms of old age. This is due to the fact that Anabolicum vister is a very weak androgenic steroid, which is well, tolerated. It has mainly an anabolic effect, which stimulates the protein synthesis and has the welcome characteristic that it does not aromatize. It also causes only a low retention of water and salt. In addition, the substance is not 17-alpha alkalifying and consequently, not liver-toxic. However, all these positive characteristics make Anabolicum vister a very weak steroid, which does not help athletes achieve significant improvements. Women, older athletes, and steroid novices may gain some advantages while the more advanced will be disappointed by its effect. Men usually need very high doses in the range of 80-120 mg/day to feel anything at all, while some women react with a small muscle gain and a nice strength gain by taking only 30-40 mg/day. As mentioned earlier e side effects are minimal and usually occur in persons taking high doses and showing sensitivity to the androgenic residual effect. Thirty capsules come in a glass bottle with a screw cap, packaged in a matching box. Anabolicum vister is rarely found on the black market since there are very few requests from athletes.
