Many bodybuilders use steroids to increase their muscle mass and to build a perfect body shape, during a steroid cycle the muscles have a fast growth, but at the end of the cycle a part of the muscles goes away. This consequence can not be stopped, but there is a way to reduce them and try to preserve a great part of your muscle mass. First we will talk about some processes that happen in the body system during the steroids cycle, this is about: hormone levels, recovery process is faster after the training sessions, nutrients are being faster processed by the body.
A more recent study looked at escalating doses (20 mg,40 mg,and 80 mg) of oxandrolone in 262 HIV+ drug was administered for a period of 12 weeks. The group taking 20 mg of oxandrolone per day showed no statistically significant trends of hepatotoxicity in liver enzyme (AST/ALT; aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferase) values. Those men taking 40 mg noticed a mean increase of approximately 30-500/0 in liver enzyme values, while the group of men taking 80 mg noticed an approximate 50-1000/0 increase. Approximately 10-11 % of the patients in the 40 mg group noticed World Health Organization grade III and IV toxicity according to AST and ALT values. This figure jumped to 15% in the 80 mg group. While serious hepatotoxicity cannot be excluded with oxandrolone, these studies do suggest that it is measurably safer than other alkylated agents.
A lot of myths surround injectable hGH and its effects on athletes. Here are some risks you should be aware of. If you buy what may be called "growth hormone," "growth stimulator" or "growth factors" online, it's likely they're not really hGH. Many websites claim to be selling growth hormone, but they're really selling amino acids that don't significantly increase growth hormone levels in your body. Also there's a risk of contracting HIV or other diseases (like hepatitis) if people share needles, because human growth hormone can only be injected, like many steroids.
