They are quite popular among the bodybuilders and even ordinary persons as well.
The topic of this review, the Prohormones.
A reasonable question for start is why they are so popular and what exactly are used for.
It’s about time to brush up your memory if you ever heard of them and what exactly is that you know about them.
Could we assume that prohormones are steroids and if so which are their side effects on body and health.
A detailed analysis of prohormones follows below so any reader could obtain a complete view of these, what exactly they are, how they work and if they present any side effects.
Prohormones are substances not exactly known to most of the people, even to those who have heard of them.
It would useful to find out why these are of any concern to us.
The prohormones – as already mentioned – are very popular to people training systematically and who “bruise” their body during the workouts.
To answer the principal question they are not steroid substances, however they have an effect similar to that of steroids in the body.
Though they have targeted and impressive results, the use of pro-hormones does not cause the expected side effects (similar to those of steroids).
In fact, prohormones, we are supposed to be a kind of “precursors” of steroids known to all of us. They are converted to anabolic substances into the body of the user after they are received.
Supedrol and Epistane, the most popular prohormones are no longer available on the market, since they were banned in 2014 as dangerous anabolic substances!
This means that all prohormones are illegal and forbidden?
Definitely not. Making a search in the market, you may find a lot of products (at a lower price compared to anabolic steroids).
These products replace these banned products being completely legal and available for sale.
Some of the most popular prosthormones found in the market are:
Objectively, the results provided by these legal prohormones can not really reach the performance of their illegal prohormones.
However, they provide very good results … especially if used in the right way!
A number of questions like “Why should I use a prohormone supplement?”, “How and to what a prohormone supplement will help me?” or even “What are the changes to my organism and my body with the use of a prohormone supplement”, should be answered to understand better these substances.
First we see the results expected from such a supplement …
This is why specific products are used in addition only by people exercising very seriously and painfully (i.e. professional athletes, bodybuilders, even amateurs “working” extensively with their bodies).
The aim is the targeted and rapid growth of muscle mass and the removal of any unnecessary body fat.
They present a real action and indeed provide very satisfactory results. However, prohormones do not appeal to the general public with a relaxed weekly routine (1-2 times during the week) in the gym.
You will not receive the results you imagine or hope to have without very serious and systematic training!
At this point, we should point out the ideal use of prohormone supplements, in order to have the expected results.
A prerequisite is the systematic and hard (very important) training, without this one being enough. It is essential – along with your training programme – to consistently follow a well-structured nutritional program covering your body’s needs before and after hard workouts to maximize muscle growth and shorter recovery time after them.
The basic prohormones known by most people are banned and dangerous. However, there are products in the market with improved formula, 100% legal!
Here is a quick look at some of the most popular and most effective suggestions for prohormone supplements, probably found ay any potential user in the internet.
It is by far the most popular prohormone for a simple reason. It offers very satisfactory results without requiring high doses.
It helps in rapid and effective muscle reconstruction, while eliminating body fat (without having muscle tissue loss).
Another very important advantage of taking 1-androsterone is that it is not “methylated” … which is also its main difference from an illegal prohormone generating many and not negligible side effects and injuries to the body.
So this legal prohormone causes no side effects at all?
Unfortunately, we can not say that. This is also the reason we have made clear from the beginning that these are not substances to be used so freely and without an important reason. It should also be absolutely clear that they are only substances either for sports professionals or persons trained on a very systematic and hard basis!
Even these legal substances cause some side effects such as:
However, it should be mentioned that, in general, there are very few examples of users with very serious side effects from 1-androsterone prohormone.
The substance eyndronstedone is another quite well-known and popular substance to bodybuilders.
Also known as Epi-Andro is a substance metabolised to testosterone and to dihydrotestosterone. (DHT). What it does is, once used and passed into the body, it is converted to dihydrotestosterone.
The substance dihydrotestosterone is a “male hormone” playing an important role in the development and maintenance of muscles, as well as increasing body strength and stimulating endurance levels.
It has a significant anabolic action increasing the burning of fatty cells in the body and at the same time increases the level of energy to a very good level (which is especially necessary for very hard workouts)!
The results are almost immediately visible … just after 2 weeks of use!
The “legal” prohormones have a completely different composition from the old banned ones. The old prohormones were much stronger and were causing very serious side effects that could seriously endanger the health and life of their user.
Today’s prohormones found in the market are quite safe, without this meaning they are completely safe to the body.
After all they are still chemicals which should always be administered in accordance with the recommended instructions and following the appropriate precautions.
Here is a number of basic tips in case of using a supplement of prohormones:
Only the legal products of prohormones may be found in the market.
