Steroids for bodybuilders


Aldactazide(spironolactone/hydrochlorthiazide) is a trade name (searle) for an oral, combination diuretic. Specially it contains a mixture of spironolactone (Aldactide) and hydrochlorthiazide (Hydrodiuril). Aldactone is a milder, potassium sparing diuretic while Hydrodiuril is a more potent compound from the thiazide family. The combination produces a diuretic with potency comparable to that seen with a doubling in thiazide dosage(when use alone), but without the same level of calcium and potassium excretion. While a potassium supplement is often required with thiazide treatment , the balance of two drugs in Aldactazide virtually eliminates this need. Medically this drug is used to treat cases of hypertension (high blood pressure and edemas (swelling due to excessive water retention). When administered, diuresis (water excretion) becomes pronounced within a couple of hours. It may actually take three to four hours for the peak effect to be noticed, and the drug will remain active in the body for a total duration of approximately twelve hours.Athlete use diuretics in order to shed extra water retained in the body. This practice is popular in competitive bodybuilders situations, as a drop in subcutaneous water storage can result in an increase in the level of definition to the physique.
Competitions in weight class sports like boxing and wrestling also make use of diuretics administering them to manipulate their body weight for category adjustments. since the weight-in procedure is generally done a day or days before competition, the athlete has a clear window of opportunity to drop body weight and lower his/her weight class assignment.
