Here are the most common types of steroids found in Europe’s gyms. We explore why it’s probably worth steering clear of them.
Bioniche Nandrolone Deca
Nandrolone is injectable, has a high anabolic and medium androgenic content and is slower-release than other steroids. It can lead to kidney damage, heart and liver disease, increased blood pressure, wild mood swings and impotence. Water retention is also a huge problem, meaning muscle definition can be hidden behind a bloated body. Brand names include Deca Durabolin
Injectable, synthesised testosterone is the most androgenic steroid so has some seriously evil side effects. Long-term use may cause acne on the back and shoulders, hair loss, shrinkage of testicles, mood changes, prostate enlargement. Psychosis in a syringe. Brand names include Testovis and Virormone
How to make your own (safe and legal) performance enhancing drugs.
Normally oral but some non-EU or US countries produce injectable versions. It has low anabolic and androgenic effects, but while it’s easy on the hairline, it’s hard on the liver. Warning signs of liver problems include abdominal pain, light-coloured stools, dark-coloured urine, unusual fatigue, nausea and yellowing of the skin or eyes. Brand names include Winstrol
Biosira Oxandrolone – Anavar
Oxandrolene is a hugely anabolic and androgenic oral steroid commonly used or treating muscle-wasting diseases, such as AIDS. While it gets results fast, it’s also the most likely to make you go bald and give you acne. Less toxic on the liver than stanozolol but will cause your blood pressure to skyrocket. Brand names include Oxandrin
Winstrol has been one of the most popular steroids for quite some time. It’s ability to increase muscle mass, harden the body and increase stamina has made it one of the go-to steroid choices for many a user. But it’s not without its drawbacks, with many users reporting bad flare ups of acne and dry joints when using Winstrol.
The catch-22 of the steroid world. Trenbolone is often descrbed as the best anabolic steorid on the market, but it also comes with the worst side effects. It’ll hekp users to experience serious fat loss while gaining hard mass, without much need for dieting. But before you get overly enamoured by the idea, it has been known to cause serious damage to the liver and the heart, especiall when it has been used in the wrong way.
One of the more old school steroids. Anadrol was very popular in the 80s and 90s with bodybuilders. It’s a very cheap way to put on bulk quickly. As of the year 2000, however, a lot more research on the negative side effects of Anandrol has been done, and, like many of the roids mentioned above, it puts your liver at great risk, so it’s probably not with it in the long run we’re sure you’d agree.
