Who is selling quality products, who is selling fakes

pharmacies
(By Max Rosten) These are the second results (May 2012) of our long-term study of individual anabolic steroid products on the Internet market. So far, our readers sent us 2,069 specimens. 1,673 of them were sold by online pharmacies. We divided the products into 4 groups: Good quality. The fluctuation of active compound doesn´t exceed 10% and the medicament is not contamined. Acceptable quality. These are usually relatively good-quality products of unregistered laboratories. Active compound levels fluctuations do not exceed 17%. The contamination is not as serious as to endanger th...

Steroid Side Effects

steroid side effects
(By David Steen) Please notice: Everything written below on side-effects of anabolic steroids is only related to post-pubertal age-group. Anabolic steroids can lead to irreversible damage if taken before or during puberty!  We know pretty little about the impact of anabolic steroids used in high doses (for improved athletic performance and muscle growth) on human health. There are some well established facts, known to both athletes (at least the informed ones) and medical professionals. Among these is the inhibition of natural testosterone production through negative feedback (the mechan...

Laboratory Testing

laboratory testing steroids
(By David Steen) Bodybuilding and steroid forums on the Internet are mostly turning around one question: „I´ve bought steroid so-and-so supposedly from so-and-so company (see the picture), is it genuine?“ And the common answers sound like: „send a better picture of letter G in the name, then I can tell you; yes, bro, that´s a good stuff, I´m using it too, you´ll get huge“; or even „yeah, I know a guy who is selling it, it´s OK, bro.“ Please remember: you will never, never ever be able to tell the quality of a drug from its box or from a label. This is true concerning every medicament ...

Steroid Overview

bodybuilding
The modern history of anabolic steroids dates back to 1930´s: first anabolic steroid (androstenone) has been isolated in 1931 in Germany and three years later synthesized by Croatian-Czech chemist Leopold Ruzicka working in Switzerland. Isolation of testosterone followed the next year and first clinical trials with the hormone (specifically with administration of testosterone propionate and methyltestosterone) had been conducted in 1937. It was immediately apparent that the group of hormones is likely to have some anabolic and androgenic properties, although this thesis was repeatedly question...

Effects of Anabolic Steroids

steroids
(By David Steen) Anabolic androgenic steroids are synthetic compounds related to the sex hormone testosterone, naturally produced in both male and female bodies. Testosterone-producing organs include adrenal glands, ovaries and especially Leydig cells of male testes. Testosterone, as other steroid hormones, is derived from cholesterol through series of chemical reactions. Testosterone converts into either dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a strong androgen, or to estradiol (a major estrogen) in a process called aromatization. Testosterone and DHT can both activate androgen receptors in certain ...

Buying Anabolic Steroids

bodybuilder
(By David Steen)  We do NOT sell steroids, we do NOT profit from others selling steroids and we do NOT encourage you to buy them. The information below is for those who would buy them anyway and may endanger their health by buying dangerous counterfeit medicaments. Buying and using anabolic steroids for bodybuilding or performance enhancing purposes is a hard decision that is likely to change your life in many ways. If you read this section, I presume that you are either already buying anabolic steroids or are aware of their possible side-effects and legal aspects and you still decided t...

Legal Steroids

legal steroids
(By Max Rosten) We´ve been told many times that it´s possible to produce a legal alternative to anabolic steroids. There were several attempts to market marginally effective prohormones as „legal steroids“ and there are some companies still selling useless chemicals branded as such. Now it seems we finally got somewhere the recent successful clinical trials with xenoandrogens brought these substances to attention of both athletes and anti-doping agencies. What is it? Xenoandrogens are basically all non-hormonal substances influencing the hormonal axis of humans or animals. They are...

Myostatin Blockers

(By David Steen) Anyone familiar with the world of bodybuilding will agree that return to the era when power sports were completely free of steroids and various other substances supporting muscle growth (like Human Growth Hormone or Insulin) is not realistic. Steroids, even if proven very harmful, are not like cigarettes or even narcotics: steroids rather resemble the philosopher´s stone of ancient alchemists a substance that can profoundly alter your body and soul. The quest for such transformation is eternal, deep seated in human character and present in every cultural tradition. Th...

Prohormones, Insulin, HGH

(By David Steen) (Insulin, HGH, prohormones, substances claiming to raise the hormonal levels) First of all, let me warn you about the dietary supplements that claim similar effects as anabolic steroids. One possible outcome of their use is that they won´t work. A much worse scenario is that they actually might work. There are some products on the market that, although legally sold, resemble anabolic steroids in their actions. Sometimes, these are some obscure chemicals similar to testosterone that escaped the FDA or DEA´s watchful eye. Unlike the well-known steroids, these compounds hav...

Why Anabolic Steroids Should Be Legalized

(By David Steen) Testosterone and related compounds are neither toxic nor addictive. Still, their use is illegal in many countries and in some of them they are listed along with dangerous narcotics. The use of anabolic steroids can certainly cause side-effects, just as the use of most other medicaments. But there is no serious medical study proving the relation between use of anabolic steroids and serious disease. On the other hand, such commonly prescribed drug as Viagra claimed 522 lives during first two years of use in USA alone. According to study by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, „maj...
