Anabolic steroids are a type of substances whose chemical composition is similar to hormones such as testosterone. These substances are used by many sports persons and body builders to improve their fitness, and to increase their stamina and strength. In many sports, use of such substances is therefore illegal, because they are deemed to give undue advantage to their users. Apart from their illegality in many sports, there still are many negative side effects of anabolic steroids. Here we will discuss the 4 main disadvantages of using anabolic steroids.
One of the most common questions asked about HGH is whether it can make users grow taller. Between the ages of about 12 and 18, your body is still growing. During this time, the administration of HGH can help you add inches to your height. As such, HGH is an essential part of therapy for children who have growth disorders such as dwarfism. However, between 18 and 21 years old, growth plates on your bones fuse together and essentially “lock” your height. Administering HGH may cause individual bones in your body to thicken, but it will not lengthen them.
