Spironolactone, or Aldactone, is extremely popular in bodybuilding and fitness simply because it is a diuretic. It has been around since the 1950s and has been used widely in combat sports, bodybuilding and aesthetics when making certain weight categories in necessary to compete. Aldactone is also commonly used to lower blood pressure and treat edema (water retention).
It stops aldosterone from binding to receptor sites, and it inhibits some of the exchanges of electrolytes, primarily sodium and potassium. After that it, it makes the body excrete a lot of water and sodium while retaining potassium. This is a benefit that separates it from other diuretics that often deplete potassium levels in the body. For bodybuilders or physique competitors, this compound is great at helping shed those excess bloaty masses and watery looks and really produce the contest conditioning they’re trying to achieve.
Bodybuilders and physique competitors should not take Aldactone for more than three consecutive days. Because potassium is spared with the use of Aldactone, there is no need to consume extra potassium with your diet. Athletes and bodybuilders typically use 100mg per day, with the doses divided and taken two times per day.
Those considering Aldactone for therapeutic purposes will find doses between 50-100mg per day suitable; however, most will find that 50mg per day will do the trick. Using Aldactone for medical conditions can range anywhere from five days up to two weeks.
