The outstanding, and usually ignorantly contented fact, is that steroids are an essential ingredient to successful body building. Contemporary negative criticism against steroids is valid to an extent, but only in extreme cases of abuse and misuse. Objective views of how steroids and their derivatives work, how they endanger health and how they supplement the body building venture, reveal a very distinct positive side of steroids. It has been correctly said that steroids are not bad, the problem is with their users.
If for instance we consider protein supplements, we can be apparelled by the mountains of misconceptions abounding in the body building industry. Most of these exist in the form of myths totally biased towards the negative. Essentially therefore we should approach steroids as synthetic derivatives of the human natural hormone called testosterone. Clinical tests have established without refute, that steroids amplify the rate of muscle growth in size, stamina and strength. Some supplements containing traces of steroid properties are essential in giving the body nutrients and minerals that are otherwise unavailable in ordinary body building diets.
Yet despite this being a clinically established facts, some people heartily believe that taking a dose of steroids only leads to definite death. Just like any other drug such as aspirin and Tylenol, abuse and misuse of steroids only leads to health complications. Another myth is that steroids are all the same in effect. Anabolic steroids used by body builders, are substantially illegal and are only available in the black market. This makes most anabolic steroids for sale unregulated and non standardised. Products available in the market differ therefore in quality and effect.
Another fallacy about steroids is that they are easy to get. To obtain good anabolic steroid products requires ingeniousness rare in most body builders. The problem usually is that steroids can only be legally accessible with a prescription. Otherwise, which happens in 99% of the time, a body builder can only get steroids from the black market. Another delimiting fact about the circulation of steroids is that being guilty of distributing, possessing or using them can lead to automatic penal punishment of up to 5 years in federal prisons in the USA.
Most people wrongly believe that all steroids are pills. The fact is we have several varying forms of anabolic steroids. Some indeed are in form of pills but others are essentially liquids injected in the body. The liquid forms of anabolic steroids can be of two distinct types too. One type includes those steroids that are packaged and used as liquids and the only thing a body builder has to do is to inject them into the system. The second type however is packaged as powder and it has to be mixed with water or other solvents to become an injectable solution.
Finally, another misconception in popular circulation about anabolic steroids is that the more steroids you take the more results you get. This is a popular view especially with professional body builders. To the contrary rather, steroids become safe and more effective if taken according to the recommended dosage and not anymore or less. Taking an overdose of anabolic steroids can work wonders at the outset but after a while the overdose will bring down the walls of the body building venture with a vengeance.
