The bodybuilding with steroids: a cocktail should be consumed with moderation.

The bodybuilders often have the same goal: to build up a not only slender body but also, and above all, a well-sculpted body emphasizing perfectly the muscle structure. This objective requires regular and intense efforts. Taking steroids, widespread in sporting environment, may be a little boost but beware, this type of product is not insignificant, far beyond.

Definition of anabolic steroids

The anabolic steroids are synthetic hormones made in the laboratory. They are designed to reproduce the effects of testosterone, an androgenic hormone naturally present in humans (testosterone contributes actively to the production of proteins in cells and their development, particularly at the muscles level).

Anabolic steroids and bodybuilding

The anabolic steroids are especially popular with athletes because their regular intake causes rapid mental and physical transformations.

Mentally, the athlete is often more motivated and seems more determined than ever. He feels stronger and has nerves of steel. Physically, there is a rapid increase in muscle mass, strength. The athlete is become more enduring and his recovery capacity is increased.

The dangers of anabolic steroids

Taking steroids is not something to be done frivolously because these products can, if they are taken very badly, may cause unpleasant or even dangerous side effects: important acne, baldness, tendonitis, infertility, impotence, addiction, cardio-vascular disorders...

Psychologically, an anabolic steroids abuse disrupts the mood of the athlete who often becomes very aggressive. These negative effects of steroids are unfortunately not the only ones, there are still many others.
