Injection of tomatine into mice caused a rapid drop in blood pressure. This is presumably the result of tomatine-induced disruption of red blood cell membranes. (Cholesterol seems to protect the erythrocytes.   Intraperitoneal injection of tomatine results in a decrease of diuresis in rats. This effect is accompanied by increased corticosteroid and neutrophil levels and a decrease in the Na/K ratio in the serum.  The oral administration of tomatine in doses of 15–30 mg/kg or the intramuscular administration in the dose range of 1–10 mg/kg induces a dose-dependent inhibition of induced edema  similar anti-inflammatory effects are noted when tomatine is administered subcutaneously.
It’s all common sense now, certainly I was not going to put myself and my body through the risks of anabolics. I can tell you though, shifting my mind from anabolic steroids simply was not an option for me. However, dealing with it’s side effects is what really held me back from getting any place near this stuff. With my friends’ help in telling about legal steroids, I no longer need to even touch a drop of anabolic steroids. First, I was certainly not going to put my health at risk. Second, I did not want to spend a few years in jail if I ever get busted with this stuff.
