What are steroids and what are they used for?

At their core, steroids are drugs based on the male hormone testosterone, which is actively involved in the synthesis and production of protein necessary for the "building" of muscle mass.

It is a mistake to assume that steroids are only used in bodybuilding. Since their artificial synthesis in the early 30s of the twentieth century, they have been widely used in medicine for burns, anemias, various injuries, that is, wherever enhanced growth and strengthening of tissues is needed, as well as steroids are used in urology, for diseases of the prostate gland.

The mechanism of action of steroids can be represented as follows: the synthesized hormone enters the bloodstream, initiates chemical reactions that reach the brain cells, activate signals for more intense protein production. In turn, increased protein synthesis leads to the growth of muscle tissue.

The effects of steroid drugs are divided into androgenic and anabolic. These effects differ from each other in specific manifestations that are achieved when they are used.
