Although steroid hormones are the most commonly used drugs in competitions, the risk of athletes using these drugs is increasing as their detection sensitivity continues to increase. As a result, some athletes are turning to other similar drugs, such as "hormone and metabolic regulators" and "selective androgen receptor modulators", Human Growth Hormone
, Bodybuilding Peptides
. Following are the differences of how to use each of them.
Steroids are mostly in the form of oral pills and inject oils. All of them are made of Raw Steroids
which purchase from overseas mainly from China. Inject raw steroids need to be mixed with Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Alcohol and oils at some certain rate, the process needs to be heated and filtered then get the finished oils in the end. Taking steroids does have amazing results, but its high cost makes it unpredictable for most of people, so another form of steroids appear, Semi-Finished Oils
. Semi-finished oils only need to be filtered then bottled and it`s much more economic than finished oils. It`s getting more and more popular in the market.
Human Growth Hormone
(HGH) is a kind of fat loss supplement, it can also increase muscle mass, increase bone density, increase physical strength, improve skin luster and texture, improve immune system function and so on. It is kept as lyophilized powder and needs to be mixed with bacteria water when using it. It`s similar to the using of bodybuilding peptides.
Selective androgen receptor modulators(SARMs), is also made of SARMs raw powders, but it is only take orally. Because of its protein assimilation of selective androgen receptor modulators without the side effects of steroid hormones, no matter for bulking or cutting cycle, these drugs are commonly used as an alternative to steroid hormones by athletes to enhance their protein turnover, improve muscle strength and improve athletic performance. The selective androgen receptor modulators currently are available on the market including MK-677, MK-2866, LGD-4033, GW-501516, RAD140, AICAR, SR9009 and so on.
The benefits of SARMs are as follows:
Provides the same positive effects as steroids
Some people think that given the same dose, the effect is slightly lower than the effect of steroids, but not too much.
Their side effects are significantly reduced
They still have side effects, especially when they are abused. Unlike steroids, the effects and reversibility of this effect are much smaller. They do not cause testosterone shut down, nor do they increase the risk of heart, liver, prostate and pancreatic diseases.
All SARM are orally
Some steroidal drugs are administered intravenously. Among other effects, there is a risk of using a needle infection. SARMs exist in the form of tablets or powders that make them relatively harmless.
SARM is marketed as an over-the-counter drug. There is still controversy about whether it is legal to use it in official sports competitions, but some alliances have banned the use of these products because of their effectiveness.
