What are the Prohormones?
For starters, prohormones are not hormones that you put into your body, contrary to what many people mistakenly believe. These are types of chemical compounds that have been developed to trigger specific effects when they come into contact with androgen receptors. These effects include a significant increase in lean muscle mass, increased strength and endurance levels, increased vascularity and even accelerated fat loss.
How do Prohormones work?
In summary, prohormones are taken orally and turn into active anabolic compounds using natural enzymes when they come in contact with the androgen receptors. After this conversion, messages are sent to the cell nuclei in the body to stimulate them to trigger the positive effects.
Are Prohormones anabolic steroids?
People often believe that prohormones are a more natural version of anabolic androgenic steroids or AAS. In fact, Prohormones are simply fragments of anabolic steroids. Instead of introducing raw testosterone into your body, which is the case with anabolic steroids, you ingest precursors of testosterone to force your body to produce this hormone and trigger androgenic effects.
