hormonesI read some odd magazines sometimes – everything from health mags to car mags, my home is like a doctors waiting room!

And here’s something intriguing from a health mag I came across today that I thought I would share. I am a bit of a gym workout fan, but I’d never come across ‘prohormones’ before. Have you?

So What Exactly Are Prohormone Supplements?

These are supplements that you take which can effectively amplify the hormones that already exist in your body. Examples of these would be proinsulin which can help increase the amount of insulin that your body produces in the pancreas, or might even help with the ability of insulin to avoid insulin resistance. Many bodybuilders use these Prohormones in an attempt to get more muscle mass. Instead of using anabolic steroids, which can have massive effects, it is a supplement that can be taken in place of steroids to enhance the effects of testosterone to get a similar end result.

Testosterone And Prohormones

If you have testosterone in your body in large quantities, and you take prohormone supplements, it can actually act like an anabolic steroid helping to increase the potential of building muscle mass.


It also does much more than help with muscle mass, as it also increases endurance, recovery time, and may lead to more need body mass. By reducing fat levels, and increasing muscle mass, bodybuilders can get the desired results without having to take steroids. There have been some prohormones side effects noted with those that have used them, such as affecting the way that your liver is able to process toxins in your body. Although the effects are considered to be rare, and will only develop in extreme cases.

So it seems if you would like to increase your ability to build muscle mass, increase your endurance, and decrease recovery time, you might want to consider taking pro-hormones. Any supplement that can help you improve muscle gains without having to worry about all of the problems typically associated with steroids, yet still achieve the desired results, has got to be a move in the right direction hasn’t it?

So I’m certainly intrigued enough to want to dip my toe in a bit further. I’ll let you know how I get on 🙂
