Anadro formally known as Oxymetholone is derived from Dihydrotestosterone (DHT), belonging to the family of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) derived anabolic steroids. This means that Anadrol is basically Dihydrotestosterone modified.
Anadrol differs from its parent hormone DHT by the addition of a methyl group attached to it, as well as a 2-hydroxymethylene group attached to a carbon in the first cycloalkane ring of the steroid structure. These modifications allow Anadrol to remain active in muscle tissue, which is where Dihydrotestosterone would normally be rendered inactive by its reduction to other metabolites once it enters muscle tissue. The enzyme responsible for doing this to Dihydrotestosterone, which is present in large amounts in muscle tissue, is 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. With the chemical modifications mentioned, this enzyme does not interact with Anadrol. This allows Anadrol to be heavily active in muscle tissue, and lends to its very strong potency. Anadrol possesses an anabolic rating of 320. It has also been determined that Anadrol also possesses reduced androgenic strength compared to that of Testosterone, where Anadrol holds an androgenic rating of 45.
