In my opinion, a bodybuilder becomes unnatural with the use of prohormones, which, in all reality, are steroids.
Competitive Edge Labs makes two awesome prohormones called H-Drol and M-Drol. These supplements are pretty legit, as H-Drol is a clone of Halodrol, along the lines of Superdrol. But all are prohormones- they replace the testosterone your body makes.
That is the difference in natural and "legal" steroids. Natural test boosters like trib just force your body to make more of it, which is all good and dandy. Pro-hormones (and steroids alike) actually kill
your bodys natural testosterone while replacing it with a more-potent form. And sure, the sides are mild to wild depending on the compound and route of administration. Oral supps like H/M-Drol are mythlated, which makes them extremely harsh on the liver. They can also mess with your cholesterol and BP. To counter this, things like Cycle Assist exist to keep the levels healthy and the liver happy. Of course, that is just one aspect of the safety issues.
The biggest problem, albeit most exaggerated, is the fact that your body will quit making its own testosterone. That is why you hear people say your balls will shrink. Truth be told, they will. But at the end of the cycle, you go onto whats called PCT- post cycle therapy. This consists of a product that works to get your little boys going again. For H-Drol, a SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) is used...such as Nolvadex. Nolvadex is a drug that is used in females with breast cancer. It forces estrogen (the counterweight of testosterone) levels down. Additional products can also be used to start the testosterone factory up again.
For you, you gotta decide if you wanna stay clean or what. All pro-hormones will show up in tests (competition athletes take heed) and there are side effects. I will supply you with two links at the bottom for both natural testosterone builders and pro-hormones, but you need to do the research. Find a compound or product you like, say H-Drol, and google "H-drol cycle". Go through all the posts and find out what others have done....you need to do your research if you are going to do something drastic like that.H-Drol

But I haven't even barely scratched the surface on anyof this, so I cannot stress it enough: research everything! Google till you think you know everything, then keep going. ANY prohormone cycle requires the prohormone, supplements to run along side the prohormone, and supplements to take after. This is, of course, on top of a heavy lifting routine and near-perfect diet. I am running H-Drol now and loving it. PM me if you have any specific questions.
Good luck. Remember to research!!
