What are steroids

Introduction to Anabolic Steroids

The word Anabolic refers to growth of skeletal muscles which is usually termed as Anabolic Effect. Likewise, the Anabolic steroids are the synthetic substances that promote your anabolic growth.  The Anabolic Steroids had came into play in 1930`s. They were fabricated to treat various diseases. A lot of studies have also shown that the use of anabolic steroid help in building cellular tissue in muscles by muscle protein synthesis. They are also capable of augmenting strength, endurance and stamina.

How Anabolic Steroids can help you in muscle building?

You might have now understood the effect of Anabolic Steroids that it helps you gain muscles mass but the question that arises is how? What is the science behind it? Whether it is some kind of miracle? Well you can say that it is a miracle but the miracle of science.

You might have heard the stories of athletes and bodybuilders who use steroids to enhance their performance in their respective sports. It might be gaining muscle mass for bodybuilders or it may be getting endurance for a basket ball player. But let us make our discussion in the regard of gaining muscle.

How Steroids gain muscle

Anabolic steroids are similar to testosterone hormone but they are synthetic and more effective. They lead to gains in muscle mass and help improving physical performance.
