The science behind anabolizantes

Posted by jennycooper on February 22nd, 2014

There's no doubt about it - if you are serious about culturismo and making your body huge is a priority, anabolizantes can help you do it quickly. It's a proven fact. Synthetic hormones will help you grow muscle quickly and make your muscles look beautiful in the process. But, here is what most people know about anabolizantes: they make muscles grow faster, there are harmful side effects to our health, most sports leagues have banned them, and they are illegal without a prescription. So, how do they actually work? Does an athlete just pop a few pills and then wait for the Popeye-spinach effect? Actually, the science of anabolizantes is quite interesting.

Anabolizantes are the synthetic, made in a lab, derivatives of the naturally produced hormone testosterone. They promote the growth of muscle and the typical male characteristics of puberty. When legally prescribed, they are an option for patients who produce abnormally low levels of testosterone or who suffer from body-wasting diseases such as cancer or AIDS. When used by man and women in culturismo, the goal is to speed up the body's natural muscle-building process.

When people lift weights heavier than what they are used to, they create tiny micro-tears in muscle fibers. The body's natural repair process repairs the tear and then overcompensates by adding bigger cells to build a stronger fiber - this is called muscular hypertrophy. Over time, this repeated process of teardown and re-build will result in muscle growth. Natural testosterone is the body's main ingredient for this process, but anabolizantes can serve as a supplement.

Once ingested, the anabolizantes travel through the blood stream to the muscle tissue. They are drawn into the muscle cell's receiving dock, called an androgen receptor. Once delivered to the muscle cell, the anabolizantes can interact with the cell's DNA and stimulate the protein synthesis process that promotes cell growth.

Different variants and amounts of anabolizantes can cause different reactions producing either massive culturismo physiques or more toned athletic muscles. Athletes, mainly from the culturismo world, experiment with different combinations or regimens in an attempt to fine-tune the final result. While the focus in the media is on the bulked-up home run hitters, anabolizantes can also benefit athlets who need a faster turnaround from sore, overused muscles.

Intense exercise also releases cortisol, known as the stress hormone, which breaks down muscle tissue, producing sore muscles. Anabolizantes can block cortisol from binding to the muscle cell's receptor sites, which diminishes the breakdown process. Less muscle breakdown means less muscle fatigue.

Besides all of the known negative side effects of using steroids just for ergogenic reasons, there is also the uncertainty of what exactly you are taking. So, maybe a few more hours lifting weights each week now sounds like a better strength-building option.

Resource Box: The men and women in culturismo know that, in order to achieve the desired body, they need to put in a lot of hours, discipline and training. If you do want to boost your performance and be the king of the hill, you can also try anabolizantes, but make sure you do it under strict medical supervision.
