The headline may sound a little offensive and suspicious but today we will talk about different types of people who should never buy steroids in Canada. All people are different and this is quite okay up to the moment when some people can hurt themselves without even thinking about it.
What Are Steroids
Steroids are chemical compounds that are usually derived from the sex hormones testosterone and dihydrotestosterone, which have very powerful effects on the human body. There are currently over 100 types of steroids available in both pill and injectable form, sometimes they even come as a powder or tablets.
There are also different types of steroids because of the fact that they mimic natural hormones, which are responsible for different processes in the body. There are catabolic and anabolic steroids:
Catabolic steroids are usually used to treat inflammation and are produced in the adrenal cortex or made synthetically. It’s a purely medical thing, not really useful for regular people.
The other type is anabolic steroids or anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) in which we are interested the most due to their valuable properties for athletes.
Who Can Get More Damage Than Benefits From Steroids
For now, let’s go back to the theme of the article, what are the types of people who should never buy steroids in Canada? We distinguish three types and we will talk about them in details:
- Unhealthy people
- People with no self-control;
- People who don’t know how to use steroids (aka ignorant people)
Now —for a more detailed breakdown for each type.
People With Health Issues
It’s good when even a person with health problems wants to become better and strive for more. However, this can lead to very bad consequences for him or for her.
For example, imagine a person with heart issues. Every normal doctor would recommend to this person to be very, very vigilant, because the heart is our natural engine, if it stops… You know what happens then. But this person really wants to be cool looking and handsome as pro athletes and starts to take steroids without asking for permission from the doctor.
Perhaps even in the right dosages and following a special diet, but among other things steroids have side effects, such as increased blood pressure and even seizures. The consequences of taking steroids are superimposed on those diseases that a person already has and lead to irreparable damage, and possibly even death.
Liver Issues and Oral Compounds are The Worst Combination
Liver damage is one of the most well-known side effects.
First, liver damage is caused only by tablet forms of drugs that have a methyl group at position 17. The process is called 17-alpha-alkylation. This added group prevents the destruction of the drug in the liver, but makes it toxic to it.
Secondly, the side effect on the liver occurs only when very large doses are used over significant periods of time.
The liver is an organ only found in vertebrates which detoxifies various metabolites, synthesizes proteins and produces biochemicals necessary for digestion and growth. Its other roles in metabolism include the regulation of glycogen storage, decomposition of red blood cells, and the production of hormones. Imagine having problems with such an important organ and simultaneously taking steroids which can lead to a rare condition called peliosis hepatis, in which blood-filled cysts form in the liver.
Moreover, oral steroids and 17-alpha-alkylation can cause HDL/LDL imbalance. Which isn’t really a good thing either. That’s why unhealthy people — and especially those who KNOW heir liver is not really that tough — should never take steroids.
People With Self-Control Issues (aka Just Crazy Ones)
The second type is crazy people. Not only in a figurative sense but also in the common sense of this word. You may wonder why. It’s because steroids due to their chemical nature and their similarity with hormones have an impact on the central nervous system.
Steroids increase the level of natural hormones and can give you not only a beautiful body, but also a huge list of things that are, well, uncomfortable, to say the least:
- Uncontrolled aggression;
- Paranoid thoughts;
- Dramatic mood swings.
There are people who are crazy in other ways. They have no mental limits. In this case, they will – most likely – abuse steroids. It is obvious that benefits of steroids can be reached only if one takes them with moderation, doing sports and following a diet. “Crazy people” do not think about it at all. They see the results and want more and more, and as you can guess, abusing steroids is very dangerous.
People That Just Want Easy Gains
The last type is ignorant people. It is a very small part and a lot of these people can easily go to the normal side if they just dive deeper into the steroids subject.
Steroids aren’t magic pills and you can’t achieve anything by sitting on a couch doing injections.
You need to know how to workout properly before you try steroids, what diet will be good for you and what exercises. That’s why such people should never buy steroids. They will just waste their time, money, and most importantly — put their health at risk for nothing.
Who Can Actually Buy Steroids
Finally, here comes our hero — the one who CAN buy steroids. Well, at least, who has more chances to get their benefits SAFELY. For pure simplification — let’s talk about the necessary traits as if it was a real person. Now, who’s that handsome devil? He is a complete opposite of the types described above. He is:
- As healthy as a bull;
- Knows what he wants from specific compounds and what he wants to achieve;
- Knows his limits;
- Knows how to treat dangerous compounds right (invested a lot of time in research);
- Knows all the necessary training cycles, how to eat in a surplus during a special diet, and all other basic stuff;
- And finally — has a trustworthy doc to talk to if he has any problems.
Good for him, be like him. At least if you PLAN on using steroids. If you’re not sure yet — weight all the pros and cons again. It might be your thing, might be not. No need to put your health at risk UNLESS you really know what you’re doing.
