Oral Turinabol has the scientific name of Chlorodehydromethyltestosterone, also referred to as Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone or DHCMT. Broadly, all anabolic steroids can be classified into two categories: endogenous steroids and exogenous steroids. Endogenous steroids are ones naturally produced by the human body such as testosterone and dihydrotestosterone. Exogenous steroids are altered versions of endogenous steroids designed by pharmaceutical companies in an attempt to create steroids with more desirable properties including oral bio-availability, increased anabolic effects and lowered androgenic or masculinizing side effects.
Structurally, Turinabol is a cross between two anabolic steroids: Dianabol and Clostebol. Turinabol has the same base structure as Dianabol, but also contains the added chlorine atom at the fourth carbon, which is the unique feature of Clostebol.
Overall, these structural alterations make Turinabol a milder cousin of Dianabol, as it exerts no estrogenic side effects (such as gynecomastia) and, in general, is less androgenic or masculinising
