Prohormones are simply bodybuilding supplements; as a matter of fact prohormones are steroids. They are important in increasing Testosterone as well as the body mass. Taking prohormones leads to notable gains in size and strength. The users of these substances increase endurance apart from feeling stronger. Taking prohormones guarantees confidence to the users
Prohormones are surprisingly cheap. One packet costs below $50; they are illegal in most countries because of their dangerous side effects. Most athletes and bodybuilders use them. Prohormones aren’t technically hormones, they chemical compounds that are responsible for amplifying body hormones. All hormones in the body have corresponding prohormones. Bodies are capable of producing prohormones naturally on their own. This includes pro-opiomelanocortin and pro-insulin. Surprisingly, prohormones do not offer maximum effectiveness on their own; prohormones are basically weaker forms of anabolic steroids.
Even though most prohormones are illegal, there are other types of prohormones that are legal. Certain prohormones that do not promote or enhance body growth; these ones are technically legal for usage

The side effects of using prohormones
Just like anabolic steroids, prohormones have devastating side effects. There are ways that those side effects can be minimized; but again, it’s almost impossible to totally avoid the side effects associated with prohormones even if you are careful with their post cycle therapy, usage and dosage.
Below are some common side effects experienced by prohormones takers:
– Dizziness and nausea
– Hair loss
– Breast enlargement
– Liver damage
– Swollen prostate
Since prohormones are ‘hepatoxic’, they are capable of severely damaging the liver. It’s therefore recommended not to use prohormones every now and then i.e. have an on and off cycle. You can take prohormones supplements for a period of about one month and then take a break of at least 6 weeks before resuming taking them
Is it advisable to drink alcohol while taking prohormones?
The greatest mistake that most people do is taking prohormones while they are drinking alcohol. Prohormones are very tough on livers. When you take pro hormones and alcohol, you overwork the liver. Here the liver is given an extra task of processing the hormones as you cycle through them. The liver gets overworked and takes a beating any time you take prohormones. Alcohol also prevents protein synthesis i.e. muscle growth. It’s therefore important not to take any form of steroids or prohormones like Deckadrolone while taking alcohol.
NB- Most physicians and doctors recommend against using prohormones. Most people who take them most likely do that without medical guidance. Most doctors do not support taking of prohormones with an aim of boosting testosterone. It’s also not advisable to take prohormones if you are below the age of 21 years since at this age; the endocrine system is still under development. If you take them, you will fill the body with artificial testosterone; this will make your body not to produce its own testosterone
