Types of Steroids​


Corticosteroids are drugs used to treat inflammation. Physicians prescribe these through tablets, injections, inhalers, and topical creams. This type of steroid treats asthma, allergies, eczema, multiple sclerosis, and many others. It also helps a person recover from an organ transplant.
It resembles the effect of cortisol, the body's anti-inflammatory hormone. If a person has low cortisol levels, corticosteroids may help increase the hormone's action and return it to normal.

Anabolic Steroids​

You probably heard of anabolic steroids in bodybuilding, a synthetic hormone that mimics the effects of testosterone. It is also known as "performance-enhancing drugs" since it increases the sporting performance of an individual who takes them.
Physicians may prescribe anabolic steroids for men who have problems with their hormones. People who are under medication for AIDS may also take anabolic steroids.

Until today, many bodybuilders take Dianabol to increase their muscle mass. It is the most famous oral steroid that boosts testosterone production.

Trenbolone (Trenolol)​

Trenbolone is another steroid suitable for bodybuilding. Because bodybuilders cannot purchase them in pharmacies, Trenolol is a more suitable natural alternative. This steroid can help achieve bodybuilding goals by providing energy for an intense workout without feeling rapid exhaustion.

The needed dosage of steroids depends on your body composition and condition. If you need steroids to treat medical conditions, your physician may prescribe the proper dosage of injection or oral medication you need.

Alternative to Steroids​

Compared to synthetic steroids, natural steroids come from plants and other natural resources. They also provide the same effects as cortisol and testosterone, but it has lesser risks and does not have the same side effects as anabolic or corticosteroids.
Creatine is a compound from a natural source with the same effects as a steroid. Like synthetic steroids, they may also increase the strength and power needed for your workout routine. You can see its results in as early as 5 to 7 days.
If you need an anti-inflammatory solution but don't want to take corticosteroids, ginger is your best alternative.
Other vitamins and minerals like magnesium, zinc, and vitamin D also affect muscle health. Vitamin D may help in providing muscle strength and mass. Zinc plays a crucial role in repairing the muscles after a strenuous workout. Magnesium improves muscular performance, whether joining a sport or spending time in the gym.


Steroids play an essential part in improving health conditions if appropriately used. You will need a physician's prescription before taking them. Though it is illegal in bodybuilding, many still use it to improve their physique. Its effects may not be present as of the moment, but it may cause long-term effects on your overall health, physically and mentally.
