1 Are your products real?
Yes , there is no chance of getting counterfeit or fake goods from us. We are sponsors of several sites, you can read our reviews and the reviews of the brands that we feature.

2. You prices are low. Why?
We don’t inflate the prices to the end consumer, we also buy direct from the manufacturers. Additionally, there is tremendous competition.

3. How do I know you won’t rip me off?
We sponsor Professional Muscle, if we were ripping people off, we wouldn’t last long. People know us from years ago, we never cheated anyone out of even a single tablet!

4. Can I always reach you by email?
Yes, we strive to answer all emails within 12 hours, though sometimes it may take 24 hours. Don’t worry, we will never ignore you or forget about you. 

5. Are steroids safe?
Not all steroids are created equal! Some orals have been chemically prepared so that they take longer for your body to break down. This is good for body building but bad for your body. They have been C17 alkyl-alkylated which makes them relatively toxic for your liver. Certain oral tablets are not C17 alkyl-alkylated (such as Andriol and Winstrol) and are less likely to cause side effects (at reasonable doses). Though injectables are not C17 alkyl-alkylated they are not free from side effects. Just like orals, injectables should be taken in sensible doses followed by a suitable steroid holiday to allow your body’s functions to return to normal levels. Be sensible and take the proper protections.

6 What are anabolics?
Anabolics are synthetic derivatives of testosterone, and have been engineered to enhance its anabolic (muscle building and repairing) properties and minimize the androgenic (sex-linked) properties. Along with this modification each compound will have often additional benefits and properties that can allow a specific effect to be achieved, and are found in a variety of strengths.


Anabolic hormones work by stimulating receptor molecules in muscle cells, which activate specific genes to produce the proteins needed by the muscles to grow. They also affect the activation rate of enzyme systems involved in protein metabolism, thus enhancing protein synthesis and inhibiting protein degradation (an anti-catabolic effect). 


When anabolic/androgenic steroids are administered they cause an increase in phosphocreatine synthesis. ATP adenosine) is the fuel that your muscles use to actuate contractions. For this to occur ATP must be changed into ADP (adenosine diphosphate) so that energy can be released. This allows for muscular contraction. In order to convert ADP back into the energy source ATP phosphocreatine (CP) is needed. The more CP that is available, the greater regeneration of ADP to ATP and the greater the work capacity of the muscle at an accelerated rate. Increased CP levels also increase cellular glycogen and protein stores (amino acids) in muscle tissue. CP also increases cellular size, due to an increase in intercellular nutrient volume.


AAS have a positive effect upon fat distribution and storage. There are 2 reasons for this. The first reason is that AAS reduce the amount of insulin released in response to nutrient intake and improved insulin sensitivity. This is in part due to an improved CP synthesis rate and other metabolic factors resulting in an athlete's muscle cells becoming better able to absorb nutrients such as carbohydrates in the form of glucose and glycogen and proteins in the form of amino acids. Insulin is anti-catabolic and anabolic. Great for muscle cells, but it also causes the conversion of glucose into glycerol and then into triglycerides. Insulin can therefore increase fat stores and growth of fat cells. A decrease in insulin release and an increase in insulin sensitivity mean better utilization of nutrients for muscle growth. The second reason AAS effect fat is because testosterone blocks the activity of a fat-synthesizing hormone called lipoprotein lipase. Since lipoprotein lipase is blocked, less can be produced and stored. HGH also has this effect.
Some of the beneficial effects of AAS are: 

Excellent anabolic qualities and the resulting lean tissue augmentation?
Increase in muscle size and strength gains
Increased muscle glycogen synthesis
Increased athletic performance and endurance
Increase fat mobilization and decrease fat synthesis
Promotes red blood cell count for improved oxygen / nutrient transport and vascularity
Increased bone density, formation, and mineral use
Increased creatine phosphate (CP) synthesis and storage
Enhanced recovery and regenerative qualities
Improved cortisol control and protein sparing qualities
Androgenically induced brain function / training intensity

Increased metabolic rate
Improved self-confidence, energy, memory and sense of well-being.
