Testosterone Supplements in Muscle Building

By: Alien

The basic understanding of the testosterone supplements is the need of the hour. The growing popularity and excessive dependence on the testosterone products for muscle building has produced several ill effects on the users. The testosterone, a male sex hormone comes in the category of anabolic steroids. Though it is synthesized in the body naturally, it is also taken orally to gain muscle fast. It stimulates protein synthesis and aids in quick muscle growth. The reason of popularity of testosterone intake is nothing but the desire to bear heavy muscle growth and increased performance in sports. But the side effects of it are usually ignored. The aim of this article is to highlight how it affects the users negatively causing many ills.

Apart from natural testosterone boosters, other testosterone boosters are available in the form of pills, tablets, gels and powder. It is not recommended to those who are above 25. This is the time the natural level of testosterone begins to decrease. Teenagers prefer to take it to gain huge muscles quickly. It is the stage where they really don't need it. Raising the T level high artificially affects the body in two ways. First, it upsets their natural hormone level brining health risks. Secondly, it affects them psychologically making them more vulnerable to the potential physical and mental complications.

Actually at the teen age the production of testosterone is at its peak level. So there is no need to take it that is already at its zenith. Moreover there is no point in taking testosterone supplements whose efficiency is still under debate. It may or may not benefit the users but it does cause acne and increases aggression. The probability of baldness also goes high with the regular use of testosterone boosters. Even enlarged prostrate glands are common problems among the frequent users of testosterone boosters.

Some of the diet pills raising T- level are ZMA, Viraloid and Tribulus Terrestris. These are the most sought after pills that attract people willing to build muscle fast. ZMA is said to be comparatively safe anabolic steroid. It is produced with the help of natural ingredients and can increase the muscle strength considerably. Athletes with intense muscle building training take it to optimize their efficiency. ZMA contains vitamin B and mineral which makes it comparatively less harmful. Viraloid is also a natural product made from the extract of sterol plants. It helps increase the body's natural production of testosterone. Tribulus Terrestris is an herb that acts as a testosterone enhancer and provides higher muscle building capacity. But in spite of all claims made by these products it is necessary to consult a doctor to recognize the true nature of the muscle supplements. They only can better understand the implications of these so called testosterone boosting supplements.
