Let's Unveil Anabolic Steroids
You dream of it without being able to confess it to your surroundings, even to yourself. Yet, like most of your fellows, you desire it in the depths of your flesh and your soul ... you fantasize to the point of imagining the least of its contours. You project its firmness and dynamism, as the most beautiful testimony of your personality. Who is it ?
Of your body in search of ideal obviously. This body that gives itself to see, throughout our existence. This body that speaks of our history, despite us. This body which according to its forms catalogs us and places us in the huts of the athlete, the pulpy, the dynamic or the soft, the big, the ugly to see the left-to-count. Eh yes, the body represents an essential vector in self-esteem and in its relation to the other. So, we secretly aspire to a perfect body, firm, muscular and fat free.
And why in this quest for the perfect body, we would not appeal anabolic steroids to achieve our goal, to finally reach our dream? They have all the anabolic potential to offer us a muscular body without fat. But now, anabolic steroids do not have a good reputation in the public square!
So, what to think? Dare to oppose public opinion? Or, close his dream to put himself on the side of the right-thinking?
And if for once, we become virgins of any prejudices, to discover or rediscover the true face as well as the history of anabolic steroids?
What are anabolic steroids?
To understand anabolic steroids and their action on the body, it is important to go back to the basic functioning of the body.
At the biological level, two processes will be decisive in the physiognomy of our body. It's about catabolism and anabolism. The first (catabolism) is responsible for destroying nutrients (lipids, carbohydrates and proteins) in order to provide the body with energy to ensure its proper functioning and vital functions. The second, anabolism, is concerned with building the essential structures of our body, from the basic materials. These two processes will therefore be at the base of the evolution of our silhouette. For example, if fat anabolism is more important than catabolism, then we are going to be fatter. And conversely if the process of catabolism is superior to the anabolic action, then our body would tend to lose weight. This approach is obviously schematic since in the balance between catabolism and anabolism come two determining factors: the quality of the nutrients ingested as well as the intensity of our physical activity.
Indeed, to refine its silhouette means lose fat and not muscle. Yet when we lower our calorific intake each day, in order to lose weight, we often lose a lot of muscle. While the muscles provide the shapes of a perfect curve. It is therefore important to maintain and develop them as needed. For that, we will have to transform our energy into muscles.
In a natural way, the body has of three anabolic hormones what are : Testosterone, Nandrolone and Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Testosterone, in particular, has the ability to develop muscle mass by increasing the number of cells in muscle tissue. This process is achieved through protein synthesis.
Sports supplements called " Anabolic Steroids "Correspond, therefore, simply to the synthetic form of the three hormones anabolics of the body and their derivatives, namely Testosterone, La Nandrole and DHT. Science has synthesized these hormones and created derivatives for the purpose of "to provide assistance, the most specific and effective, to people who want to improve their physical abilities
How were anabolic steroids discovered?
Thinking of the sublime Greek statues, we find that the search for a perfect, muscular and fat-free body does not correspond to contemporary social behavior. The man has always been in search of bodily perfection. At 19e century, the Franco-British neurologist Charles-Édouard Brown-Séquard already boasts benefits felt during the injection into his body of testicle extracts of dog and guinea pig.
However, the identification and isolation of anabolic steroids will only be done in the thirties. Everything begins as early as 1931, by extracting 15 mg from androsterone from more than 10 000 of liters of urine by chemist Adolf Butenandt. This hormone will be synthesized in 1934 by Leopold Ruzicka in Zurich.
Knowing that the testes contain an even more powerful androgenic hormone, the pharmaceutical companies decided to finance its isolation to three groups of researchers in different countries. The countries concerned are Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. This hormone will therefore be identified by David Karoly Gyula, E. Dingemanse, J. Freud and Ernst Laqueur in 1935. Testosterone had just been discovered. However, the patent for this discovery will be deposited by other researchers, a week later. These are Ruzicka and A. Wettstein, German researchers, who will even receive the Nobel Prize for their find, in 1939. The Nazi government forbade the two chemists to receive the Nobel Prize.
At the beginning of its isolation, the researchers thought that Testosterone brought power and youth. They had not yet no idea of its action on the development of the muscles. Tests were then carried out on the German soldiers in order to increase their strength and aggressiveness, as well as the prisoners of war, in the concentration camps.
After the fall of the Third Reich, other countries will be interested in the properties of Testosterone and discover its anabolic abilities. Thus the USSR and other Eastern European countries are starting to use Testosterone to increase their performance, especially for the Olympics. From there, born an anabolic competition between countries, to provide the most powerful anabolic for athletes. In this atmosphere, Dr. John Ziegler, then working for the American team, will develop a testosterone analogue, which is less Side effects : Dianabol was born.
Since then, science has been actively pursuing research to develop more specific steroids with the fewest possible side effects.
The effects of anabolic steroids:
Positive effects of anabolic steroids:
During'a cure of anabolic steroids, you will see (depending on your goals and the steroid retained), the following benefits:
- Significant development of muscle mass
- Significant Amplification of Muscle Strength
- Fat burning
- Increased Energy
Anabolic steroids help achieve your goals (weight loss, volume gain, muscle development, PTO) easily and quickly and achieve long-term results.
Side effects of anabolic steroids:
It is important to specify that if the cure is supervised by a specialized coach and the precautions taken, no serious side effects are to be feared. The most harmful side effects occur most often in inappropriate combinations or overdosage.
However without the precautions taken, here are the effects that can cause a testosterone cure:
- Decreased or discontinued production of natural Testosterone. In order to boost the production of natural Testosterone, it is essential to follow a PCT (a cure of post-cycle recovery).
- Lesions in the liver during treatment of oral steroids without taking protections. Oral steroid cures are usually accompanied by Samarin to protect the liver.
- The development of male breasts, the famous gynecomastia, following a conversion of steroids to estrogens.
- An increase in blood pressure
- Cardiovascular risks
- Growth arrest if the cure is performed before 21 years
- A baldness
- The appearance of hair on the back, torso and face in women.
However, a well-framed steroid treatment does not present any major risk.
The perception of anabolic steroids:
In the sport :
In the sport, the use of anabolic steroids is associated with both cheating and doping. All sports federations have banned their consumption classifying anabolic steroids as doping products. There is even the World Anti-Doping Agency, developing a list of all banned products during competitions. If an athlete is tested positive, the anti-doping test, the sanctions against him are quite strict: temporary exclusion of competitions, high fine see a few months in prison suspended.
In the media :
Anabolic steroids do not mix with the press. Indeed journalists like to compare anabolic steroids to the new fashionable drug, supposedly taken by people with little education. They often forget to mention the studies carried out on steroid consumers reveal consumers with higher incomes than the average population and extremely well-informed people about the effects of steroids.
Journalists prefer to light the red alarm to alert the dangers of anabolic steroids, failing to specify that if the cure is well framed and supplemented by liver protections as well as a recovery cure, the risks are minor.
At the level of the law:
Well the law, it is changing, since it varies from one country to another. Some paranos countries like France, will prohibit consumption and sale without a prescription, while others will be more tolerant to see completely open to their practice. Among the countries the most open to using anabolic steroids we find Mexico and Thailand.
Movement of decriminalization:
Anabolic steroids are used in the medical sphere for trmany diseases. But their use for aesthetic purposes disturbs. Yet some movements have emerged especially in the United States to try to decriminalize their use.
Indeed, to date no serious scientific study has highlighted the real dangers of anabolic steroids. On the other hand, their legality in all the countries would make it possible to put an end to the clandestine laboratories, which for them, represent a real threat for the life of these users, by supplying it with adulterated, uncontrolled products, manufactured without standards of hygiene. .
