The first thing you need to know is that there are many different types of steroids. They all have their own purpose and effect on your body. You may or may not ever see them in the gym, but they’re out there somewhere in the world. There’s also a whole range of other drugs like GHB (Gamma Hydroxybutyrate), Ketamine, Ecstasy, Opiates, Morphine and more.
There are two main types of steroids: Anabolic and Androgenic. Anabolic steroids increase muscle mass while Androgenic ones reduce it. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, but most importantly they both affect your mood.
If you take too much anabolic steroids then you’ll get bigger muscles, but if you don’t eat enough calories, your body will start losing weight instead. So eating right is very important when using steroids.
Anabolic steroids are usually used to build muscle mass faster than you could naturally do it. They work by increasing the amount of red blood cells in your body which makes your muscles grow faster. However, they can cause side effects such as acne, hair loss and even impotence!
Androgenic steroids make your skin look thicker and more masculine looking, however they can also lead to impotence and increased risk of cancer. Since they reduce fat, you’ll definitely look more ripped.
Both anabolic and androgenic steroids can make you look a lot bigger than you actually are. This is because they both increase your red blood cell count so your muscles get more oxygen to grow. They also increase the amount of carbohydrates you body burns off, which builds muscle.
They’re illegal to sell for human consumption, but that doesn’t stop many companies selling them online. Most steroids are taken orally, but some are injected directly into the body.
GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate) is a sedative that’s also used as a general anesthetic during surgery. It makes you feel euphoric and relaxed and can make you sleep for extended periods of time.
