Anabolic steroids are synthetic derivatives of testosterone. Mostly steroids are made from the roots of Mexican serpaparilla, a climbing plant used to produce tonic supplements. The components of the anabolic steroid are obtained chemically using the root of this plant.
Testosterone is a male sex hormone that stimulates the growth of the tissues it affects, mainly muscle tissue. Testosterone has both anabolic and androgenic effects. The androgenic effect promotes the growth of hair on the face, gives the male voice a low timbre, and develops a penis and an erection.
If you simplify the formulation, then anabolic steroids can be represented as an artificially created male hormone that forces the male genital organs to develop and promotes muscle growth.
But, there are both pros and cons of the effects of steroids on the body.
Cons of steroids:
By buying steroids regularly, you can ruin some organs, such as:
liver - steroids can destroy the cellular structure, form internal tumors, disrupt blood flow, can lead to the loss of basic functions, accompanying poisoning and death, cancer.
reproductive system - steroids can lower sperm production, lead to impotence, impair urination, lead to inflammation
bladder, reduce the production of sex hormones, enlarge the prostate gland, cause cancer or prostatitis.
blood circulation - steroids increase blood pressure, increase cholesterol, disrupt the electrolyte in the blood balance, slag the heart muscles, and lead to a heart attack.
skin and muscles - from the use of steroids, irritation appears on the skin, permeability of skin infections increases, sweating intensifies, muscle pains appear, connective tissue grows, and the possibility of enlargement of organs such as nose, ears, fingers and toes.
psyche - you have aggression and irritability, neurasthenia, a psychoneurotic state, sleep disturbance, headaches appear.
immunity - due to the use of steroids, the immunity gradually weakens, which can lead to the formation of immunodeficiency, the symptoms are very similar to AIDS. Even the mildest catarrhal disease can lead to death.
Not all steroids cause the above diseases. There are steroids, which, due to their individual characteristics, can effectively affect the human body. Of course, the ability of each human body to take different anabolic supplements is also quite individual.
In general, drugs with great anabolic effects contribute to tissue growth to the greatest extent. Being in the blood, some steroids with an increased ability to bind to the desired receptors may be in free form longer, so they are more likely to meet the target receptor zones.
Substances like Deca, Dianabol, Cypionate, Sustanon-250 and Parabolan are able to find the necessary receptors in the body, since their percentage of free molecules is quite large than other drugs.
But let's not forget about the physiological abilities of each person , some bodybuilders have an incredibly large number of receptor sites in the muscles, which ensures the connection of receptors with a much larger number of molecules, which contributes to an anabolic effect. Athletes with a small number of receptors in muscle cells need to increase doses from a mixture of different steroids. But, be careful. Overdose you do not need.
The effect of steroids on muscle cells depends on the number of receptors in your body . Some athletes, taking steroids will go on to increase mass, while others on the destruction of a particular organ. So, before you start taking anabolic steroids - think: do you need it? ...
