Things You Must Know When Using Anabolic Steroids

Think you know steroids or would you like to expand your knowledge of using such? If yes, I strongly advise that you keep reading till the last paragraph of this article.

Anabolic steroids are basically synthetic versions of testosterone or the body’s natural sex hormone. Anabolic steroids have successfully attracted countless of bodybuilders as well as athletes as they are capable of increasing the strength and size of muscles significantly in short period of time. They are even increasing aggressiveness and competitiveness that is known to be desirable traits in gym as well as sports.

As a matter of fact, anabolic steroids may be prescribed by doctors in an effort to stimulate bone growth, promote appetite, lessen the effects of muscle wasting from chronic diseases similar to AIDS or cancer, show promise as male contraceptive and to induce male puberty. These drugs are available as injectable steroids, skin patches and oral pills.

Anabolic steroids can change strength and muscle mass. The steroids can also lead to the increased production of protein that is known as the building blocks of muscles and needless to say, more building blocks mean higher possibility of strength and muscle mass.

When the steroid is consumed either via injection or orally, it is travelling to androgen receptors that are situated within various cells. This said connection will activate hormone receptor that is known to create messenger RNA that signals the DNA to construct specific proteins. To be able to create growth responses and anabolic responses, these proteins are travelling throughout the body. And despite the fact that anabolism is the main function of steroids, they can also draw out undesirable and desirable effects.

So the question is, will they work, of course but is there a need for a person to take them, No. Consulting their doctor is a must for anyone who plans to use steroids as the abuse of such drug may lead to unwanted side effects. Apart from increasing strength and muscle mass, abusing the use of anabolic steroids may result to effects like harmful changes in levels of cholesterol, acne, damage to the liver, high blood pressure as well as changes to structure of left ventricle of the heart to which if not addressed immediately, may result to cardiovascular disease.

Anabolic steroids also have this virilizing or androgenic effect or in other words, there is a chance that they can affect the male characteristics that are mentioned above. Anabolic steroids can also affect the growth of clitoris in women, growth of puberty and genitals in male children, increased body hair especially at the back and chest, increased size of vocal chords and deepening of voice as well as premature baldness to those predisposed to it.
