Finally, if you possess the complete knowledge, you may smile inside due to the experiences you had. So, let’s begin the journey.

It is wise to say that you must not consume anabolic steroids for bodybuilding without medical supervision. Whatever I will write in this blog, it is a part of neither the fitness nor wellness industry. This is to say that only medical professional can advise such drugs. These days people are very fond of beautiful and muscular physique. 

That is why many anabolic steroids are commonly used in different industries. To name a few, fitness industry, bodybuilding, sports and men’s physique.

Lets understand what are steroids?

What Are Steroids?

stanozolol, primobolan, stanazolol, Dianabol side effects, Steroids & Bodybuilding-Best Steroids For Muscle Growth-Anavar

Your body makes steroids and basically, steroids act as hormones. They have two classes. Firstly, corticosteroid made in adrenal cortex. Adrenal cortex is a part of adrenal gland situated just above the kidneys. Secondly, sex steroids made by gonads or placenta. For instance, testosterone, estrogen etc.

Anabolic Steroids promote anabolism. In simple words “anabolism” means “to build up” therefore anabolic steroids build up your muscles. The use of steroids is very common among bodybuilders. Above all, they are effective in treating patients with catabolic medical conditions or muscle loss.

Steroid hormones help control not only metabolism, inflammation and immune functions but also salt and water balance. Moreover, they have a crucial role in development of sexual characteristics. The ability to withstand any injury and illness is due to such steroids. Hence, they are also artificially produced by man which duplicate the action for the naturally occurring steroids.

Steroids are now the performance enhancing drugs in sports or lifesaving drugs prescribed by doctors.

There are numerous compounds but I am going to discuss 5 anabolic steroids in this blog.

Anavar or Oxandrolone

Anavar or Oxandrolone is a mild and basic steroid and it was first synthesized in 1962. Doctors recommend it in order to prevent muscle breakdown in certain patients. Anavar is used in bodybuilding sport to gain a few pounds of muscles. Also, it is one of the most female friendly steroids because it does not account for hormonal imbalances as much as other steroids do.

Are Steroids Safe?

Undoubtedly the above-mentioned steroids are dangerous and life threatening. It is sad to observe that the young generation in fitness industry is consuming these evil compounds at a large scale. In my next blog, I will brief you on the other types of testosterones. 

Here I am referring it in context with fitness industry and its abuse. Most of the young generation is getting influenced by the celebrity’s physique, to illustrate, Salman Khan & Sahil Khan but our youth tend to forget about the adverse effects of steroids that can end their lives. You can say that steroids are in use in bodybuilding but it does not have a relation with fitness. You do not need steroids to stay fit !

To conclude, you cannot get a muscular & bulky body naturally. All such celebrities including body builders use or misuse anabolic steroids as they are in show business. You must be aware that Ronnie Coleman and Arnold Schwarzenegger have undergone many surgeries. They did it because they could afford it. Never forget that it is not everyone’s cup of tea to treat adverse effects of steroids because it requires lots of money !
