Anabolic androgenic steroids powders are the most common appearance and performance enhancing drugs (aped). Usually, they are just called "steroids".
They are synthetic hormones, similar to testosterone, and have anabolic (bodybuilding) effects because they stimulate the growth of skeletal muscle.
They also have androgen (male) effects that enhance typical male characteristics. When you see a male bodybuilder, many people use steroids to shape this image.
Anabolic steroids have serious side effects and risks. Although the media's hype about unrealistic body images has put pressure on young people, they should resolutely dissuade young people from using these drugs.
Men need to be fully aware of the dangers of using these drugs.
Do not confuse anabolic steroids with common steroids (prednisolone), which are powerful anti-inflammatory drugs and sometimes prescribed by doctors.
Who's using anabolic androgenic steroids powders?
According to a 2016 IPED survey, about 1 million British adults (mainly men) are currently taking anabolic androgenic steroids powders - equivalent to 3% of the male population.
56% of respondents said they took them for beauty or appearance improvement. Typical anabolic steroid users are non athlete men in their 20s or 30s. It is rarely used among women and adolescents.
Why do men use anabolic androgenic steroids powders?
Most men who use anabolic androgenic steroids powders suffer from body deformation syndrome, a psychological condition caused or exacerbated by watching unrealistic depictions and exaggerated male physique in films, television, magazines and other media.
A man in this situation looks in the mirror and sees a thin and weak man, although the fact is far from true.
Although women also have dysmorphia, few people take steroids because muscles are usually unattractive to women.
What effect does anabolic androgenic steroids powders have?
The use of anabolic androgenic steroids powders can lead to muscle growth and development, which is beyond the effect that can be achieved only through good nutrition and weight training.
Users often say that they take them to help improve their confidence.
Their main purpose is to achieve the ideal figure. Increased muscle mass can also improve their performance in some sports - such as weightlifting or shot put.
Anabolic steroids are not very good at improving athletic performance that requires agility.
