Steroids - what is it and why are they used by athletes in the UK
Steroids are a chemically synthesized male hormone testosterone, but significantly improved. After entering the body, steroids stimulate an increase in the rate of protein production in muscle tissue, which, in turn, promotes the growth of muscle fibers. In addition to this property, steroids have gained popularity among athletes, due to their ability to significantly increase the physical parameters of the body. If you go deep into history, the very first synthesized steroid was testosterone, which could be obtained from cholesterol, and this happened more than 100 years ago, but to this day anabolics are actively used in medicine to stimulate weight gain in malnourished patients.
