Innovagen Ora-Drolban aka Superdrol is a drug containing an anabolic steroid methasteron. Also called metasteron, this steroid – is a powerful oral anabolic agent that has never been manufactured as a commercial medical product.
The drug was mentioned for the first time in medical reviews in 1960, and its last mention, it seems, appeared in 1965. In addition, except this very short period of steroid mention in the literature, the rest of the time methasteron was forgotten. Only recently it re-emerged on the gray market of anabolic steroids in the United States.
Its chemical structure is very similar to Masteron (Drostanolone) one. The only difference - is the addition of 17 alpha-methyl group, a modification that gives this steroid high availability when administered orally. In many cases, 17-alpha alkylation alters the structure of the steroid while in this case it does not.
As its parent drostanolone – it is not aromatized, so there is no estrogen difference between these two steroids. Neither of them may exert estrogenic side effects. What is more, both of steroids preserve advantageous ratio of anabolic effect to androgen. Laboratory tests have shown that its anabolic activity 4 times higher than that of oral methyltestosterone and that the ratio of the anabolic to androgenic effect constitutes 20:1.
Studies on Masteron have proven that it is as powerful anabolic agent as testosterone, but only with 25-40% of androgenity. It is still a very effective anabolic steroid, but generally its ratio is 3:1 instead of 20:1. The effective dosage of methasteron starts in the range of 10-40 mg per day for males. However, do not expect to gain 20-30 lbs of mass while using this steroid; in fact, you will gain 7-15 lbs of quality mass in the case of taking it in solo cycle.
In determining the optimum daily dosage, some do find that the drug is more effective in the range of up to 30mg. At higher dosage the potential hepatotoxicity of the drug may develop. In many cases, the best solution would be to use methasteron 20 mg per day + any non-toxic injectable steroid such as nandrolone or boldenone.
Since this steroid has high ratio of the anabolic effect to androgen, it may be interesting for representatives of female bodybuilding. In fact, methasteron is less androgenic than popular among bodybuilders Winstrol and Primobolan. It is not recommended for females to take the dose more than 5 mg per day.

Innovagen Ora-Drolban - is an oral dihydrotestosterone - of course, if we suggest that the addition of 17-alpha-methyl group makes this drug a kind of basic oral steroid, although this is not entirely true. In order to be called ‘Oral Masteron’, the substance had to be 2-alpha-methyl mestanolone or, even better, 17-alpha-methyl-drostanolone.
That's how we have called this substance – 17-alpha-methyl-drostanolone. It happened a few years ago. It seems strange that this drug has not been studied for several decades before that, so it is likely to have a much longer history than we think. So, we can conclude that "superdrol" - is actually the result of the combination of drostanolone and mestanolone since it includes a 2-alpha-methyl group of drostanolone and 17-alpha-methyl group of mestanolone.
And oxymetholone is absolutely another substance which differs from superdrol by a 2-hydroxymethylene group instead of 2-methyl one. Methyl group is completely inert as it is non-polar. It does not give to substance any specific biochemical characteristics, forming a simple steric mass, and this is its purpose.
This mass is a steric hindrance for the 3-alpha and 3-beta-hydroxysteroid enzymes of dehydrogenase, so unlike mestanolone, superdrol is deactivated in muscle tissue not so fast. Mestanolone is not good as anabolic since it is quickly deactivated, breaking into 3-hydroxy-metabolites. 2-methyl group weakens the bonds between the enzymes for such reaction, and slows down the rate of deactivation, that is why superdrol unlike mestanolone exhibits some anabolic activity.
Oxymetholone contains hydroxylated carbon bonded to another carbon which forms a chemically reactive polar group. Furthermore, this carbon has a double bond with the nucleus of sterane, which increases the reactivity of the oxygen atom.
Although the mechanism of action of these links is not fully studied yet, it can be argued that they attach oxymetholone some unique properties that can be explained by the interaction of this substance with others with which the majority of anabolic androgenic steroids do not interact at all, or do it in a very limited extent.
As superdrol structure comprises 17-alpha-methyl group, the substance is less prone to metabolic deactivation and does not form a 17-ketosteroids; probability of 16-hydroxylation is also low. It follows that superdrol possibly remains active longer than drostanolone, and is excreted from the body more slowly.
Unfortunately, the 2-methyl group is also weakened due to androgen receptor, which is aggravated by presence of the superdrol 17-alpha-methyl group in structure. For this reason, the effectiveness of superdrol is greatly reduced, on the level of anabolic activity approaching this agent to drostanolone.
So superdrol cannot be considered as an effective agent for muscles building - it is only used by men with small stature, and those who have no experience of anabolic androgenic steroids intake. It puts superdrol in a row with other weak oral androgenic steroids without aromatizing effect - such as Anavar (Oxandrolone), Winstrol (Stanozol) and Halotestin.
In comparison with weak steroids mentioned above, androgenic activity of superdrol is significantly lower than in Halotestin, but much higher than in Winstrol and Anavar. This happens because in spite of increased activity of the drug in comparison with mestanolone, deactivation is faster in muscle tissue (2-methyl group reduces but does not exclude deminuation of the 3-keto function).
Not deactivated dihydrotestosterone does not provide muscles with the same level of activity as those tissues to which an action of androgenic steroids is directed, despite the fact that the widespread opinion is opposite. Although young healthy men do not suffer from side effects while taking androgenic steroids, those who have reason to fear their appearance, should use Anavar or Winstrol but not superdrol.
However, many athletes claim that the use of more powerful androgenic steroids increase muscle density at a low level of fat content in the body. While this is not relevant for everyone, it can be assumed that superdrol has a similar effect. In this case, superdrol is preferable to other oral steroids mentioned above.
Estrogen and progestogen activity
As most steroids that are based on 5-alpha-reductase superdrol does not exert estrogenic activity. Mestanolone and drostanolone also do not have the aromatizing effect.
Manufacturers of these substances like to point out that they do not have estrogen effects peculiar to oxymetholone, but we should not forget that, firstly, superdrol has nothing in common with oxymetholone, and secondly, it still has not been proved that the estrogenic effects of oxymetholone are estrogenic in nature: despite the raised clamor around this phenomenon, while taking oxymetholone in combination with other anabolic androgenic steroids estrogen effects are exerted very weak, and if you take this medication separately, they do not appear at all. If the agent exerts an anti-estrogenic activity as drostanolone, remains unclear.
Hepatotoxicity of this drug is quite high - maybe that's why these substances are not advertised and are not regarded as suitable for pharmaceutical use. In all cases of taking superdrol (four courses at 40 / mg per day for 6 weeks) it’s been observed a significant increase of toxins level in the liver in comparison with the period of using other common oral steroids in like Dianabol, or even higher doses (Anavar , Anadrol, Winstrol).
Thus, it is recommended to take superdrol in doses at 30 - 40 mg per day no longer than 6 weeks. If you exceed the indicated dose or duration of the drug intake, it is necessary to monitor the level of toxins in the liver regularly.

- I know good Methasterone when I feel it. Top quality. Excellent lean gains, strength increases...i'd almost call this the dbol of the 21st century. (Posted on 12/22/2019)

- Awesome Review by Keith
Up 10 lbs in a bit over a week, not water either. This is probably my new favorite. Feel pumped all day, only using 5mg morning and another 5mg at night.
Make sure you eat frequently enough, not saying"bulk" but keep your blood sugar up, get some electrolytes in as you increase your water intake.. which you should. (Posted on 12/22/2019)
