The world is a huge market for steroids of all kinds and the use of these performance enhancers is not going to halt anytime in the near future. Many of them are based on testosterone but the effects’ timing is different because of the different esters attached to them. While some are anabolic, some are androgenic and some are both anabolic and androgenic. The steroids in this article are some of the most popular and are taken in different dosages to achieve different ends
Andriol is a steroid that is relatively new in the market and comes in capsule form. It is one of those testosterone-based steroids that are classified as anabolic although it has some androgenic qualities as well. It improves the protein synthesis in the user and leads to a lot of muscle gain when you exercise for longer. It has the side effects associated with all testosterones, like water retention and oily skin.
Lasix is a diuretic that is used as a steroid as well. Most of the times, it is stacked with testosterone steroids that causes a lot of water retention. It is not supposed to be used for more than a week at any one time and is best used in the last days before a match to reduce water retention in the muscles. The removal of water from the muscles will lead to a better output in the muscles since water retention leads to more soreness and injuries. This is a loop diuretic that will cause you to urinate more often in the effort to remove excess water from the body. It has been used to treat cases of edema and hypertension but in excess it can cause side effects like kidney diseases and the loss of potassium from the body
When you think of insulin, you think of diabetes but this is not the only use of insulin. Since it is a regulator of glucose in the body of the user, it can be used as a steroid as well, as it increases the level of glycogen in the body to improve the bulking of the muscles. This leads to increased protein synthesis although a lot of it could lead to diabetes as well. Isn’t it ironical that insulin; which is used to treat diabetes can cause diabetes? This happens when you use it as a steroid for a long time and the body gets used to the external regulation of its sugar and then shuts down the operations of the pancreas in the production of insulin. This means that when you will cease using it, you will have a lot of sugar in the blood which then results in diabetes. When you use a lot of insulin, you could over-regulate the sugar in your bloodstream and lead to hypoglycemia; the loss of sugar from the body which can be life threatening
Anavar is a cheap steroid and has minimal side effects therefore it is used by leisure steroid users most of the time. It increases the level of protein synthesis and improves the mass of the muscles. It has been used for the treatment of anemia and muscle wasting diseases like AIDS. Use Anavar according to instructions as any abuse will lead to the side effects associated with aromatization, like gynecomastia and Virilization. If you want a steroid that does not aromatize, clomid is the one to use. It is a SERM; A Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator that has been used for the treatment of infertility among women. As a steroid it increase the mass of lean muscle and prevents water retention that will lead to the destruction of muscle and also prevents the side effects that come with having higher amount of estrogen in the body
