Over-The-Counter Alternatives to Illegal Anabolic Steroids

Published by at 3:58 pm under Steroids in Bodybuilding

alternatives to steroids Because of the steroid scandals permeating in the athletic world, a lot of athletes and bodybuilders are looking for legal alternatives to anabolic steroids, which will help them achieve the same results albeit for a longer period or perhaps with more effort. Of course, the most attractive benefit of these alternatives is that they do not produce the same unwanted side effects that anabolic notoriously do. Also, because they are legal, athletes won’t have a problem about steroid drug tests. Legal steroid alternatives are sold in supermarkets, health stores and over-the-counter. Some are designed specifically for bodybuilding while others are used for training. Some increase bulk and muscles while others help sustain endurance and increase strength.

Some of the popular steroid alternatives used today are the following:


Ecdy-Bolin is a combination of protein and ecdysterone, touted by its promoters to “increase lean muscles while reducing body fat.” A 1988 scientific study penned by S. Simakin and published in the Scientific Sports Bulletin showed that a combination of protein and ecdysterone increases lean muscle tissue by 6-7% and reduces fat by 10% in just 10 days.


Andro-Shock is one of the most potent steroid alternatives sold today. It composes of seven dietary supplement ingredients that work in synergy to help boosts the body’s natural testosterone levels—which is the main point of taking steroids in the first place. Increased testosterone increases strength, bulk, and energy, and speeds up muscle-healing. Because Andro-Shock is synergistic, the combination and proportion of supplements are imperative to its overall net effect.


A lot of bodybuilders prefer Nitrobol because the body absorbs it in less than 23 minutes upon intake. Nitrobol contains all the essential amino acids that athletes need to build muscle mass. Because it metabolizes quickly, the muscle-building aminos contained in the supplements gets to the muscles fast and induces muscle growth or hypertrophy. Most dietary proteins take us much as three to four hours to be digested.

Herbal Fat Melter

The Herbal Fat Melter helps increase metabolism and aids in the burning of calories, letting the body burn fat more efficiently. It also works as an appetite suppressant, preserves muscle tissue, and helps increase energy for training and workout. It also helps carbohydrates to be used as energy rather than converted into fat. It contains natural ingredients such as Green tea extract, bitter orange peel extract, Yerba mate extract, Tyrosine, Black Pepper, Vitamin C, amino acid chelate, DMAE, chromium, and aspartyl-phenlalanine.

Pumped Extreme

Pumped Extreme contains 100% absorption creatine mixed with cell volumizers “patented creatine monohydrate Kre-Alkalyn complex. It helps the body absorb creatine faster and enhance muscle strength and energy as a result.

Even if you do not need any prescription to buy these supplements and steroid alternatives, it is still best to consult your physician before taking any of these supplements on a regular basis. There may be contra-indications with your current medications or it may cause complications if you have a particular medical condition such as heart or liver disease.
