Prohormones have been used widely by bodybuilders, athletes, and nonmedical users of anabolic steroids for the past two decades. The overall intent of prohormones is to provide similar benefits of taking an anabolic steroid without carrying the legal risks, and also to achieve the hoped-for benefits or advantages without actually having to use anabolic steroids themselves. The benefits of prohormones can be diverse; they can be used to combat illnesses, cure mood disorders, trigger sleep and ease the symptoms of premenstrual tension. Some corticosteroids have some of the same benefits, but prohormones offer a much safer alternative to using corticosteroids or synthetic alternatives. Prohormones are relatively cheaper in price and provide fewer side effects.
When it comes to weight lifting, the benefits of prohormones are often similar to those of anabolic steroids. This depends on the quality of both products, but increased strength, power, muscle size and recovery time can occur. Prohormones are much safer to discontinue and legal to use.
Some of the benefits received from prohormones are due to the boost in testosterone. Testosterone has an incredible growth effect on the body, largely including increased strength. Prohormones easily dissolve into your system, and many of them will provide a quick result as hormones are fast acting and can generate results in a short period.
Like anabolic steroids, prohormones are androgen agonists meaning they exert their effect on the androgen receptor. A powerful prohormone will have anabolic and androgenic effects similar to that of testosterone. Benefits of using a prohormone include increased muscle mass, improved libido, and elevated energy levels. The intake of an oral prohormone will have immediate impacts on muscles density. However, not all prohormones are made equal; it is important to do your research and make sure it is right for you.
