Steroids are naturally produced in the body and are regulated by hormones secreted in the body. However when there is a deficiency in naturally occurring steroids or when there is a need for additional steroids in the body one needs to consume synthetic steroids to fulfill the need. Synthetic steroids are compounds which are created chemically and meant to provide the same results as naturally secreted hormones do. Synthetic steroids can be manufactured either in form of pills or drops or creams or as injections.
Steroids are of two types – corticosteroids and anabolic androgenic steroids. Corticosteroids is a synthetic steroid which resembles cortisol a natural hormone which is produced by the adrenal gland. While anabolic androgenic steroids are manmade drugs which are used all over the world in the medical field. It is mainly used for growth of muscular tissues and to increase male characteristics in men.
Possession of steroid drugs is legal. The most common steroids consumed are anadrol, Oxandrin, Dianabol, Winstrol, Deca- durabolin and equipoise. These can be consumed either in tablet form or taken as an injection. Anabolic steroids are used most commonly by sportsmen and bodybuilders to increase their lean muscle mass and improve bulky muscle growth. It is also used extensively by sportsmen to heal small tears in muscles fibres at a rapid rate thus helping them to get fit soon. However anabolic steroids are considered illegal to purchase without a prescription and you may face serious consequences under the law if caught buying them without a prescription. Hence sportspersons and bodybuilders always have a doctor’s prescription with them when they go to buy their dosage of steroids.
Steroids should be taken under careful supervision and in small quantities and an overdose of it may lead to severe undesirable effects. The minor side effects seen by anabolic steroids are nausea, vomiting, menstrual irregularities and libido changes. The more serious side effects include high cholesterol, liver damage, strokes and heart attacks and also development of female characteristic in men.
BUYING ONLINE STEROIDS IN CANADA
Steroids can be bought online as well if you do not wish to buy it over the counter from a pharmacy. But you would still require a prescription for purchasing it online also. But it can be quite risky buying online as there is no guarantee and complete assurance for safe shipment. Although the websites claim the steroids are of legal nature but one cannot be completely sure of its true nature. Hence it is not absolutely safe to buy steroids online as one does not know the nature of steroids being shipped if they are legal in Canada or not. Also sometimes the shipments get lost and do not reach the right destinations. Hence one should never order for a large quantity to incur heavy losses in case of misplacement of the parcel.
Thus to summarize we can say that possessing and consuming anabolic steroids is completely legal but purchasing it without a doctor’s prescription is illegal in Canadian law and one can face severe consequences if caught buying it illegally.
