Body or muscle building is a continuous process and takes determination, good diet and putting up long hours in a gym. Those who want to become bodybuilders should start early in their teens and slowly and methodically build their shape and muscles. It takes anywhere from 3 to 5 years to achieve full results. What if ones want to speed up the process and get the result faster? Then look for Anabolic Android Steroids which are a boost to the muscle and bodybuilders. Steroids are a special kind of medicine that helps in generating more hormones which are usually present in the body.


Hormones are secreted in our body to perform certain functions. There are different types of hormones present in male and female sexes. Steroids are chemical compounds of Carbon and Oxygen which are manufactured artificially. When consumed, Steroids increases these hormone levels thereby stimulating a function that is being handled by that particular hormone. This pharmacologic activity by the steroids are used to enhance one’s performance, be it sports or other activities.
Steroids are mainly used in medicine to overcome certain biological conditions and to improve from that condition. Examples include injecting Adrenaline during a Heart Attack situation or from severe cold attack (hypothermia) or Corticosteroid which helps in anti-inflammatory disease or Progestogens which help in pregnancy.

When it comes to sports and bodybuilding, it’s the male hormone, Testosterone that is helpful in enhancing the performance. Most steroidal medicines consist of Testosterone in one form or in combination with other hormones. The Potency or Pharmacology of any particular drug is measured by mg and how much one should consume depends on one’s body weight.

Steroids for Bodybuilding

During the bodybuilding process, there are many stages one has to cross to have that great looking shape. The stages are Cutting, Bulking and Strength in their lingo. During the cutting stage, one is more concentrated on reducing the weight. In Bulking, it’s the building of muscle mass and in Strength, increasing one’s power or stamina. There are steroids available for all the stages if one is inclined to use them.

The pharmacologic actionof a drug can be enhanced or altered by adding another chemical or compound. When one considers Trenbolone Acetate and Trenbolone Enanthate both are of the Androgenic Anabolic Steroid category, which is mostly Testosterone. But the way in which both of the work is a bit different and their effects are also different. The later compound has extra oxygen and carbon atoms forming more esters, and have a long-lasting effect on the body compared to the former. This effectively reduces the intake of the medicine while at the same time giving better effects.


As a thumb rule, steroids should be avoided and should be used under the guidance of a medical practitioner. Only when the benefits outweigh the adverse effect, then consider using them. The pharmacologic activity of Steroids may have some strong side effects when abused. Consult a medical practitioner when advice is needed or in doubt.
