Aldactone, which is also known as Spironolactone, is a diuretic that helps in hiding or masking the presence of anabolic steroids in the human body. It is used by bodybuilders, strength athletes, and other sportsmen to deliver dramatic on-field performances and yet remaining safe from doping tests.
The chemical structure of Aldactone is 17-hydroxy-7alpha-mercapto-3-oxo-17alpha- pregn-4-ene-21-carboxylic acid gamma-lactone acetate. It has the molecular weight of 416.5744 g/mol at base.
Aldactone helps in keeping a close check on the production of aldosterone besides having a minimizing effect on fluid retention. This means that it promotes enhanced muscle definition besides allowing its users to get a lean, muscular appearance.
In addition to that, Aldactone inhibits androgenic side effects from occurrence after the end of a steroid cycle.
