Professional athletes resort to special products in the period of stagnation, when intensive training and sports nutrition do not bring results. Additionally, young athletes who seek easy ways take lessons and achieve significant results. And nobody thinks about the consequences that athletes and salespeople try to keep quiet about. The topic of this article will be “Proviron” in bodybuilding – its description, functional purpose and feedback from athletes on the use of the drug.
“Proviron” in bodybuilding is not considered a steroid, most athletes attribute it to testosterone boosters. But in fact, under the trade name “Proviron” is the active androgen mesterolone, which performs a number of functions in the body:
- Provides a strong anabolic effect associated with increased protein synthesis.
- Increase the utilization of glucose in cells and reduce its level in the blood.
- Reduction of estrogenic activity by chemical suppression of aromatase.
- Significant increase in free testosterone levels in the human body.
Purchase and consequences
It should be borne in mind that the Russian authorities have added Proviron to the list of banned psychotropic drugs in Russia. This list is governed by Article 234 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Criminal liability arises when a suspect is found in possession of 2.5 grams of the drug in pill form. Of course, it is not possible to find this medicine in a Russian pharmacy. Proviron can be bought over the counter in pharmacies in Moldova, Ukraine and Azerbaijan: in these countries it is usually possible to legally buy many steroids that are banned in Russia.
Assortment in the market
There are a number of companies on the market that produce Proviron. The dosage and price of the drug were always proportional, and the batch size did not matter. Therefore, there is no benefit to the chosen athlete. Doses of 25 mg and 50 mg are on sale and the only difference between them is in the color of the package.
What are the causes of solo drug use
The independent use of “Proviron” in bodybuilding is especially popular with athletes, with the possible exception of competition, but more on that later. After all, the drug has poorly expressed effectiveness and it should not be expected to bring spectacular results. However, judging by the numerous reviews of novice athletes, gym instructors who do not have a medical education boldly prescribe a separate course for overweight people. “Proviron” is prescribed in a dose of 50 mg per day for 30-50 days without interruption. The purpose of this course is to eliminate estrogen in the body and to stimulate the production of its own testosterone.
