Anabolic Steroids for Dummies
What are Anabolic Steroids?
All anabolic steroids will be
synthetic derivatives of Testosterone (T) and nor-testosterone (Tn). Scientists
found that anabolic steroids could/would increase the growth of all the muscles
used in lab animals during the 1930's. These newly discovered hormone compounds
were used to treat some serious debilitating diseases for humans.
It was during the 1950s when
a doctor called John Ziegler dispensed an effective oral anabolic steroid
called Dianabol. It wasn't long after that when athletes started to use
Dianabol to increase strength and muscle mass. It was not long after that started when many different analogs and other
derivatives were made available to athletes.
How do Anabolic Steroids
All steroids and their many
derivatives have the same 4 ring carbon structure; it was simple chemical
alterations that were able to produce different anabolic/androgenic activity.
Anabolic activity means the ability of the steroid to facilitate additional
skeletal muscle growth. Androgenic activity means how potent the selected
steroid is at inducing development of all the male sexual characteristics (deep
voice, facial hair, body hair etc.)
It needs to be noted that not
all the mechanisms which anabolic steroids have on side effects have been
discovered yet, but all anabolic steroids will increase muscle mass, to some extent.Although
scientific study of anabolic steroids continues, the binding to an androgen
receptor (AR) which activates protein synthesis has been conclusively proven.
It's this protein synthesis
that allows for the increased muscle tissue over a relatively short period in
time. Steroid commentators call these types of steroids "Class I"
steroids. Class II steroids will also bind to AR but only slightly, and
sometimes not at all. These steroids inhibit the direct affect that
glucocorticoids have on all muscle tissue.
In other words, they prevent
glucocorticoids from increasing your glutamine synthetase, which would cause
muscle tissue to start breaking down. This is called an anti-catabolic
activity. It's the reason why steroids work so well in treating osteroperosis,
which it does by inhibiting glucocorticoids.
It needs to be noted that
some steroids will work using the AR as well as non-AR mechanisms. Science can
now prove that anabolic steroids will increase the retention of potassium,
sodium, nitrogen, phosphorous, and chloride.
What Names are there for
There are many different products and street names
for certain steroids that get broken down to create a street name, like Dianabol or D-bol for the chemical name of
methandrostenolone. Or the veterinary chemical product called Reforvit-B having
a street name like Reffie-B etc.
Below is a list of AR and
non-AR anabolic steroids. Street names listed where they have been
internationally accepted, obviously colloquial names would change from country
1. Fluoxymesterone: Halotestin or Stenox
2. Methandrostenolone: Dianabol or Reforvit or Anabol
3. Stanozolol (Winstrol)
4. Oxandrolone: Oxandrolone powder
5. Methenolone Acetate mixed with Enanthate: Primobolan
7. Testosterone a. Enanthate b. Cypionate c. Propionate
d. Suspension (commonly just called "T")
8. Nandrolone Decanoate plus Laurate (commonly Deca)
What are the Side Effects of Anabolic Steroids?
Listed below are the common well-known side effects recorded for anabolic steroids:
Hair loss, acne, mood swings, edema, high blood pressure, liver damage, kidney dammage, increased risk of heart attack or stroke, testicular atrophy, loss of sex drive, shortened life span, etc.
Are Anabolic Steroids Legal?
the US government has passed laws that make it illegal to possess or sell
anabolic steroids without a prescription from a doctor. And a doctor is never
to prescribe anabolic steroids for cosmetic purposes such as bodybuilding, they
can only be prescribed for a valid medical condition.
Are there Legal and Safe
