Legal Steroids Legitimate or a Scam : Do They Really Work?
Over the last few years, there have been several new brands of legal steroids that have surfaced, many of those products claim that they are highly effective, a big question many ask is are these products legit and do they even work? All I can do is relate to you the facts, and hopefully, you can come to a conclusion if a legal steroid is right for you.
Supplements are nothing new to the bodybuilding industry, in fact, supplements have helped bodybuilders for decades, products like whey protein, creatine, and DHEA can help you gain muscle, a new generation of supplements have now been transformed and sold under the name legal steroids, legal steroids are a combination of concentrated ingredients that when combined together can have a big impact on helping anyone increase muscle and strength.
Legal steroids can be purchased individually, but you get the best results when the products are combined together (stacked). The way legal steroids work is by mimicking hormone production, meaning that when you train and take a legal steroid it stimulates your body to produce more hormones than what it can naturally produce on its own.
There are several benefits of taking a legal steroid that include the following:
- Help increase muscle
- Increase strength and endurance
- Boost nitrogen retention
- Increase protein synthesis
- Can be cycled for an extended period of time (no side effects)
- Cheaper and safer than anabolic steroids
- Can be used by anyone over the age of 18
The above are just a few of the benefits that legal steroids offer, now the real question everyone wants to know is how well do they work. If you know a little about anabolic steroids you know for a fact that if you train hard and eat well you can easily pack on 20-30 lbs of muscle fast, having said that, someone who does not train and takes steroids will also increase muscle but at a very slow rate.
Anabolic steroids are chemical substances that help increase anabolism in the body, which means they help build up muscle tissue in the muscles and organs. They do this by increasing protein synthesis, that is why they can easily help you pack on muscle, the more efficient your body is at synthesizing protein the bigger your muscles will grow. Let's look at some of the ingredients in legal steroids.
Some of the strongest ingredients in legal steroids include the following:
- Tribulus Terrestris
- DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)
Tribulus Terestris can be found not only in bodybuilding supplements it is also a key ingredient in many male enhancement products, why? Because it naturally increases testosterone in men and while many claims it has no effect on boosting testosterone, there are several studies that contradict that statement, in fact, Tribulus Terestris has been shown to elevate testosterone levels as much as 50% or more in men, more testosterone equals more strength, bigger muscles, and increased protein synthesis
Creatine is one of the most popular supplements sold, it is estimated that every year, over 14 million dollars are spent on creatine supplements making it one of the best selling supplements on the planet, there is no doubt that it helps increase muscle mass and has been proven time and time again that it is effective. Any quality legal steroid contains high doses of creatine.
DHEA is illegal in most countries however, it is legal in the US
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is one of my favorite ingredients in legal steroids, DHEA is a prohormone that was at one time banned by the FDA, later that ban was reversed making it legal to use in supplements, many studies claim that DHEA has no effect on increasing muscle and strength, yet bodybuilders that compete and are tested positive for traces of DHEA are usually disqualified , makes you wonder why a bodybuilder would be disqualified for something that does not work.
Most legal steroids have more than what is listed above, some contain a proprietary blend of ingredients, and most men who have used them (including myself) have been able to gain a significant amount of muscle in a very short period of time, this will obviously vary and will depend on training intensity, frequency, and diet. I have seen men gain up to 18 lbs of muscle in a 5 week period which is pretty impressive.
What brand legal steroid works best?
I am not going to glorify any brand, I have personally used several brands myself, and the truth is that if your training and diet are spot on, you will gain muscle. The biggest problem with legal steroids is most men and women believe training a couple of days a week is enough to see results. Unfortunately, this is not going to work.
There are many brands of legal steroids that are very effective and offer different formulas. You can learn more details about their effectiveness and more detail about certain brands here where I discuss more in detail about the benefits of anabolic supplements and how they work.
So are legal steroids legitimate or a scam? The simple answer to this question is yes, a legal steroid can be just as effective as an anabolic steroid without the side effects, if you are still are uncertain, I have left some references below with clinical studies on the most common ingredients found in legal steroids, if you are serious about packing on muscle, a legal steroid is an effective and safe alternative to anabolic steroids.
