These forms of steroids are female sex hormones that promote sexual development and help to maintain a healthy reproductive system. The third forms of steroids are androgens. These are the male hormones called testosterone, which lead to secondary sexual characteristics and also help to maintain the male reproductive system. These specific forms have been labeled a highly addictive and are frequently abused; they are referred to as “anabolic steroids.” How Are Steroids Used There are two ways for anabolic steroids to be taken into the body, both orally and injected. Oral steroids are highly potent and are excreted fairly rapidly from the body due to short metabolic half-lives (usually within weeks).

Steroids can be used illegally, or for medical purposes. Effects The effects of steroids can both be good and bad. The good parts of Steroids are that it can be used to build muscle faster, and it can make you run faster. They also have negative side effects, such as acne, and quicken heart rate (good or bad in different ways.) (Pros) Steroids can build muscle faster because inside the pill, it contains hormone testosterone.

Origins and when discovered B. WHAT STEROIDS ARE AND HAVE BEEN USED FOR C. WHO USES STEROIDS AND WHY D. THE POTENTIAL PHYSIOLOGICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS Body I. HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE: A. SCIENTIFIC DEFINITION: Anabolic-androgenic steroids are synthetic derivatives of testosterone. Testosterone, the natural male hormone that is produced primarily by the testes in men, is responsible for the androgenic (masculizing), and the anabolic (tissue-building) effects noted during male adolescence and adulthood.
Anabolic-androgenic steroid is a family of lipophilic hormone that derived from cholesterol, which includes the natural male hormone testosterone and its synthetic derivatives, such as nandrolone and androsterone (Janjic et al. 2012; Basile et al. 2013). Testosterone is the principle molecule that possesses both anabolic and androgenic properties, which semantically refers to the ability to stimulate the synthesis of complex biological molecules and the growth of masculine characteristics respectively (Quan et al. 2011).
To be sure, anabolic steroids are effective supplements to strength training programs, but there is no doubt that the consequences can be deleterious. What are Anabolic Steroids and how do they work? Anabolic steroids are synthetic derivatives of the male hormone testosterone. Most healthy males produce 2-10 milligrams per day of testosterone. Testosterone is responsible for muscle development, facial hair growth, and deepening of the voice.
