What are Prohormones ?
For starters, prohormones are not hormones that you put into your body, unlike what a lot of people mistakenly believe. They are type of chemical compounds that have been developed to trigger specific effects when they get in contact with androgen receptors. These effects include a significant increase in lean muscle mass, boost in strength and endurance levels, enhanced vascularity and even accelerated fat loss.
How do Prohormones Work ?
At its simplest, prohormones are taken orally and will convert into active anabolic compounds with the help of natural enzymes when they get in contact with androgen receptors. After this conversion takes place, messages are sent to the cell nuclei in the body to stimulate them to set off the positive effects that prohormones have become quite famous for.
Are Prohormones Anabolic Steroids ?
Although the popular belief is that prohormones are “a more natural version of androgenic anabolic steroids or AAS”, Prohormones are simply weaker counterparts of anabolic steroids. Instead of introducing raw testosterone into your body, which is in the case with anabolic steroids, you are just orally ingesting precursors of testosterone to help the system jumpstart its production of this hormone and to set off androgenic effects when you’re using prohormones.
