Anabolic steroids are synthetic versions of testosterone, the body’s natural sex hormone. They assist athletes by facilitating efforts to gain strength and muscle mass for increased muscular endurance, power and speed.
Male hormones such as testosterone and its metabolite di-hydrotestosterone are responsible for the developmental changes that occur within the male body through adolescence. Steroids possess both androgenic and anabolic properties. Some of the androgenic effects include changes in sexual characteristics such as shrinking of the testicles, hair growth on the body and face, hair loss on the scalp, and increased aggressiveness. Athletes are primarily concerned with the anabolic characteristics of steroids including accelerated development of the muscles, connective tissues, bones, and red blood cells.
There are dozens of online stores selling steroids. To the layman, it would seem that there is an incredible amount of selection out there. However, to any person who has ever seriously tried to buy anabolic steroids, you will know how challenging it can be to find a legitimate source. What might look like an ok online store might in fact be a scam, or otherwise be selling watered down versions of what they are advertising. Until recently, it was very difficult to verify the legitimacy of an online pharmacy store. Thankfully, we have Steel Gear.
