To increase growth in muscles and decrease fat in body, athletes and bodybuilders look for steroids. Steroids for cutting and bulking are popular in use to achieve goals. However, no steroid can give you results unless there is no physical effort from your end.

Steroids are alternatives to testosterone which are boosted artificially so that a body grows faster with the help of its hormones. Some of the results of using steroids are related to delayed puberty like deep voice, hair growth, and growth in muscles. Anabolic steroids are meant for ripping of body. They come in many forms and can be taken according to convenience.

  • Injections
  • Cream
  • Dermatitis patch
  • Tablets, capsules or powder

Most of sport associations like Olympics have banned the usage of steroids. Some of the ingredients in steroids are banned by World’s Anti-Doping Agency, International Olympic Committee and many other sport’s associations. Hence, to find steroids under a prescription is difficult.

However, there are few steroids that are found with prescription and are considered to be safe-

  • Sustanon
  • Trenbolone
  • Testosterone Enanthate
  • Depo-testosterone

Anabolic steroids are used to correct male hormones with issues like delayed puberty or low sperm count. They increase the growth of testosterone. It is the pituitary gland that is situated in the brain, which controls all hormones’ secretion.

When steroids are taken, pituitary glands realize the excess of testosterone in body. Hence, it minimizes the secretion of original testosterone balancing the amount. When the usage of this synthetic testosterone is stopped then pituitary glands immediately start releasing it again, balancing the body requirements, accordingly.

Most bodybuilders use anabolic steroids to get cut, rip and bulk in body. Once they have achieved their goals they stop it gradually. All synthetic products have certain side effects hence, it is necessary to take any such product under the guidance of a doctor. Doctors do not stop any steroid abruptly as they know that sudden minimizing the level of testosterone in body can lead to various side effects.

Hence, doctors prescribe any steroid for not more than 12 to 17 weeks which is called cycling. In a cycle, the steroids are not taken continuously for long period. They are stopped after a certain period of time during bulking and cutting. Cutting steroids are generally used when an athlete is trying to shed weight for a lean body.

It is always advised not to take any steroid just by reading reviews. Any steroid should be taken under supervision of a doctor or physical trainer who knows the amount that should be taken for cutting and bulking.
