Steroids - Safe Or Savage?

Steroids - Safe Or Savage? - Making Sense of the Effects of Steroids - Part One
By Mike L Murphy

Many of us are amazed at how the body functions, how bones and muscles work together, what they are responsible for, and how to build up these muscles. Many of us play sports or participate in some type of activity. The question often arises about the effects of anabolic steroids. Today's professional bodybuilders as well as NFL players, wrestlers, etc. use steroids, and are bigger, faster and stronger than ever.

Steroids give you extreme muscular growth and strength, but are there safe ways to take this highly anabolic substance? Many people believe that steroids are 100% bad, and many others believe that, if taken correctly, they can be highly beneficial in bodybuilding and sports athletes. Steroids may help you get bigger, faster and stronger but they do not burn off body fat. Dieting and cardiovascular exercise is best to burn the fat.

Steroids come in many forms. They come in liquid form that is injected either into the bloodstream or "on-site" for specific muscles. They also come in a pill form. The pill form can cause more side effects, especially in the liver. There are also steroid creams.

Other steroids include estrogen, cortisol and progesterone. Several types of steroids can also be found in fungi, animals and plants.

Steroids are chemical compounds and each of the different types play necessary roles in bodily processes. Steroids are produced naturally in animals as well as in labs. Each steroid type is slightly different in its arrangement of atoms and structures. They influence one's metabolism and help form certain vitamins and other substances. Anabolic steroids are produced in labs from the male hormone testosterone. Some athletes use this drug as well as others to increase strength and body weight.

As you can see, it is difficult to specify the side effects of each steroid and it makes it even more complicated when people stack them.

Absolutely. TRT is very common and many doctors do shy away from it from a lack of knowledge. When a man reaches the age of 35, his natural testosterone levels begin dipping. Being smart with it and under a doctor's care, steroids can be a game-changer, as they were for me. I began using TRT at 40 and it's 13 years and counting. I get regular blood work and address any issues that come up.
