Bodybuilding Supplements are not Anabolic Steroids

October 21st, 2008 · 4 Comments

The purpose of this post is in response to some comments received from anonymous people criticising some posts here in Workout Planet, purchase for sale saying that bodybuilding supplements are bad for the health and we are instigating people to use it.

First of all bodybuilding supplements are not illegal, cialis sale they are sold legally in hundreds of thousands of body shops around the globe and most of them have on their labels that users should see a doctor before making use of it.

Second our aim is to bring our readers nice and easy to read information about the latest bodybuilding supplements available on the market today and in case they decide to make use of any supplementation they are well informed of risks and benefits.

With so many Brands and products out there it is hard to choose the right supplements, especially if you are a beginner, our reviews are aimed to help you make the best use of your hard earned money and at the same time achieve your goals.

Bodybuilding supplements are used by top end athletes, competing in professional competitions where we all know that the use of illegal substances is not allowed. Don’t tell me NBA players, football players and many others don’t take a protein shake or any other muscle recovery supplement after a training sessions. If top athletes are using it can be that bad to health like many people like to think.

On the other hand anabolic steroids are a totally different ball game; they are synthesized steroids hormones related to the testosterone or the growth hormone (GH). Specially developed to stimulate muscle growth and increase strength.

A long term or excessive use of anabolic steroids produces serious health risks such as high blood pressure and liver damage not to mention acne.

And with this quote from Wikipedia I rest my case.

The use of anabolic steroids is banned by all major sporting bodies, including the International Olympic Committee, Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, WWE, ICC, ITF, FIFA, FINA, UEFA, the European Athletic Association, and the Brazilian Football Confederation. Anabolic steroids are controlled substances in many countries, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States (U.S.), while in other countries, such as Mexico and Thailand, they are readily available over-the-counter. In countries where the drugs are controlled, there is often a black market in which smuggled or counterfeit drugs are sold to users. The quality of such illegal drugs may be low, and contaminants may cause additional health risks. In countries where anabolic steroids are strictly regulated some have called for less regulation.

Now we want to hear your opinion: Are bodybuilding supplements that bad? Please leave your opinions below.

    Ok. If your thinking about buying Animal Pack think would recommend the Dr. Max Powers Anabolic Stack instead. You don’t need to take 2 packs a day. 1 is accually perfect.

    After 6 months of taking the Dr. Max Powers Anabolic Stack the results have been incredible.mainly to strengthen up for football season in the first 3 months of taking the Dr Max Anabolic Stack i gain 15lbs of muscule,as far as sprinting and endurance goes my speed increased. the wieght i was lifting at the gym increased as well.

    3months-now

    Benchmax:175-215-230
    squatmax:285-325-375
    powerclean:160-190-220

    this was by far the best decision i made as far as supplements goes, along with a reliable protein shake the results have been 100% positive.if your in any sport at any level high school football to college basketball and your looking to gain that extra edge animal pak is the way to go. true the pills themselves are rather big but simply taking one at a time will quickly solve that problem.in the first week of taking them you want to drink as much water as possible no joke you’ll experience dizzyness if you dont drink enough water but accompanied by a good healthy diet you’ll experience muscle and strength gains like no other.

    I agree with mass, bodybuilding supplements are not bad for your health as some people might say. Of course every ones body is different and supplements can have a greater effect on some than they do with others. Bottom line is bodybuilding supplements can be useful for healthy, active people, because it helps feed the muscle the essentials it needs to grow, strengthen, and recover.
