Finley is an avid mountain climber and said his greatest accomplishment was climbing Mount Everest in his early 50's. The climb took three months and caused him to lose 40 pounds and a great deal of muscle. His lack of protein almost prevented him from reaching the top. George Waldrop, a biochemist at LSU, said even too much protein in a diet can be harmful.
He recommends a balanced diet, otherwise excess protein will be stored in the body as fat. He also said an excess in protein might increase testosterone and the production of DHT, a major contributor in male hair loss. Skip to content. WAFB Channel 9. Contact Us.

Great Health Divide. Supplements Warning. Published: Jan. Share on Facebook. Thing is, I got the worst crash ever. I know that in my case, at least, I am no longer going to search for ways of artifically increasing nitric oxide levels. Explode Preworkout "Igniter" is one of the most. This is a new hope in cancer, particularly for those tumors. Does No Xplode Contain Steroids. BSN N. Xplode Science-Based Overview More than over-the-counter dietary supplements were.
Instead, we did the EAP. However, there's limited scientific data available about the side effects of taking N. I have just thinking since that it hasnt been tested yet that it might have steroids in it. But i am no Pro at it so what do you guys think?
There was speculation that he was on steroids.
The answers are, at best, unclear. Banffy, MD. Banffy specializes in sports medicine and orthopedics at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles, and is a physician for the city's Rams and Dodgers professional sports teams. The N. The liver changes l-arginine into nitric oxide, and l-citrulline can be metabolized into l-arginine, according to a February study published in Sports Medicine. Banffy says. The product also contains beta-alanine, which two tests showed can increase exercise capacity temporarily, according to a July study published in Amino Acids.
It can cause skin to itch or tingle, as noted in an October study published in the Journal of Neuroscience. Whether the amino acids in pre-workout supplements are actually converted into nitric oxide is unclear, Shuff says. Creatine has been credited with improving performance in high-intensity exercise. It may also help prevent injury and aid in recovery, according to a June review in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
Creatine makes muscles appear more pumped, as it increases the amount of water held in them, Dr. That would gradually disappear once someone stopped taking it. Shuff advises to drink more water when using it. Creatine increases the body's production of ATP, a chemical tied to cellular energy. Shuff says it may help sprinters, power lifters and others who want extra energy for a brief period. The caffeine and other ingredients in N. The formula contains milligrams of caffeine per dose.
Regular coffee contains 12 to 16 milligrams of caffeine per ounce, notes Consumer Reports , so the supplement's caffeine is equivalent to two and a half to three 8-ounce cups of coffee. Consumers should talk to their doctor before taking any supplement and carefully read product labels, writes Nathan Arnold , press officer for the U.
I have been trying to get lean see definition in my abs for about 60 days and have had surprising good results with just diet and exercise days a week. I have a little lingering belly fat on lower abs and was looking for something to take to help with that. Any alternative suggestions for my desired results? As far as getting lean, pre-workouts will not help you there. Losing that stubborn fat will come down to your diet. The key is to jack that heart rate up for seconds and then bring it back down for seconds.
Repeat for minutes. I have never tried pre-workouts- been working out seriously for 2 years now. Prior to that, I worked out at home for 2 years inconsistently. I am telling you this because pre-workouts have always been something that I wanted to try, but I promised myself that I will only try it when I really need to. Now that I have graduated and started working full-time, My schedule is free on weekends so I usually go in the evening.
With that said, I am finally thinking of trying Arnold Iron Pump. I have never felt a crash so I have no idea what it feels like and what it does to you. Could you enlighten me on this? Any red flags I should keep an eye out for? If you drink little or no caffeine you will probably have issues with sleeping. Not only is there caffeine in it, but other stimulants as well. In my experience, there is a small crash when coming off pre-workouts but not like a sugar crash. All the stimulants really fire up your system, hormones, adrenals, and since you artificially boosting these things, you will experience side effects hen coming off.
If you start taking them regularly and then get off them, you will see a big drop in energy. Also make sure that you cycle off of them every 2 months or so or you may end up addicted. Pretty excellent write up. Ie the dependency after long term use, it sounds remarkably similar to a drug addiction. Should I look towards another one or just take half a serving and see how it goes?
How would you recommend I ease into it? Yes Sean, it can feel like a drug addiction for sure. If you are sensitive to stims or caffeine, I would avoid all pre-workouts. Wow…I just came across this website and I am at a loss for words. You sir, Steve Roy are a hypocrite and are completely contradictive. You take these pre workouts and yet you recommend that people do not take them…???
So essentially, you are saying do what I say…not what I do? In another comment you state that you have such a high tolerance that you can take x the servings and barely feel it. In fact all of your comments are filled with contradictions. Anyone who is serious about lifting and has knowledge about this industry would find your article and comments laughable. Joe, you may want to reread the article because nowhere do I recommend taking pre-workouts. I do take them personally but the point of this post was to warn people not to take them.
I spent many years addicted to soda and Red Bull and developed a high tolerance to caffeine and stimulants, so I can take pre-workouts without many of the side effects that others get. Still, I do not advise anyone to take these and fully understand that they are not good for me or anyone else. The fact is that pre-workouts are a multi million dollar business and people are taking them regardless of what I say.
If they choose to take them, I want to educate them on the risks. As far as me cycling off of them, I do that every 2 months or so and it works fine for me. Next time, read the post and pay attention to what the author is saying. Steve, Perhaps you need to re-read my post…I said that I think it is hypocritical of you to take pre-workouts and yet you tell others not to take them. That is highly contradictive and would make me scratch my head.
I have also been a trainer for years and I agree that pre-workouts CAN be dangerous, but with all due respect; they are no more dangerous than the fast food people put into their body on a daily basis. Pre-workouts are just like anything else…too much of anything is bad. Moderation is the key. I also understand that the supplement industry is a multi million dollar industry and that much of the products out there are junk.
People need to do their research or rely on their trainer who should have knowledge of the products. In regards to your comment about being addicted to soda and Red Bull…those products are actually very low in caffeine and high in sugar.
So the likelihood is that you were really addicted to sugar which is even more devastating to the body than any pre-workout on the market. Either way…my point was that you take pre-workouts, but you do NOT recommend that your clients do.
Its strange that a trainer would do one something take pre-workout and tell his clients NOT to do that same thing. I would surely question that trainer… Next time, maybe you need to slow down and read the comments more carefully. I did misread your comment, Joe. As far as being hypocritical, I disagree. If I were abusing my body, not exercising or eating fast food yet taught my clients to take care of themselves, that would be hypocritical.
Pre-workouts are still largely untested and we have no idea what the impact will be long-term. Pepper has about 40 mg. A scoop of C4, which is what I use is mg. By the way, do you have a website? Thanks for the reply Steve. No, I do not have a website…nor do I want one. Rather, I spend my time training my clients and competing in my spare time. Have a great day. I received a free sample of nitraflex from my online vitamin co, free sample was awesome I felt like a totally focused badass so I bough a small tub.
Only problem is it makes me flush red in the face and upper body and makes my scalp tingly, like all my nerve endings are firing. Manufacturer says this is a normal and a desired effect call hyperstachia, even if it makes you looks bit silly with a red face. Like I said planning on using daily but concerned about the risks.
Any thoughts or alternatives for someone getting close to 40 looking in increase general energy and focus? Hey Pat, Thanks for the comment. It really has little relevance in a pre-workout, but it does help from a placebo effect standpoint. If you use it, feel tingly, then you must think it works, right??
For increased energy and focus, I would focus on eating a very clean diet free from dairy, grains, processed foods, and refined sugars. Hi Steve, Thanks for writing about the dangers of pre-workouts. I was curious to read your article because of all the controversy with pre-workouts and energy drinks and their negative side effects.
I had also heard that the largest demographic in the renal dialysis unit is something men who take workout supplements. I hate to see so many people pumping their bodies full of toxic products when there is a safe alternative. There is a powerful pre-workout called Ignite; Fuel is to keep you going during a longer workout simple sugars ; Recover is the post-workout BCAAs, etc ; and Hydrate is the safe alternative to Gatorade-type drinks.
Ignore the retail prices on the site — I can get you wholesale pricing. My contact info is on the site. Also for anyone looking for energy without red face, headaches and crash several of you whose comments I read… , Zija has an answer for that too. Contact me through my website, kariamalia I just started using RipStix and have to agree.
Pre-workouts can definitely help with that. Thank you for the great information! I too am recently part of the 40 year old club and was researching ways to take training up a notch, however after reading your article I am going to maintain my current path of eating clean, getting enough sleep and water!
It may arguably take a bit longer to reach my goal however sounds to me like it is the safer option. Thanks again! I just recently started taking Phenadrine again as a preworkout, after 10 months of not using it as a was pregnant. I have just started to try and workout again and started taking Phenadrine for the boost I need however I feel like my body is not responding to it anymore.
I take 2 capsules before my workout but I feel so lethargic and it does nothing to pump me up like it used to. Do I need to try something else cos I defiantly need a preworkout. I can literally take 2 scoops of C4 before bedtime and sleep fine because my body is so used to it.
I remember the days of having 2 little children, working 50 hours a week, and training before work every day and I was exhausted. The best thing you can do for energy is to be fit. East a diet high in veggies, protein and fiber and drink at least 64 oz of water daily.
De-stress as much as possible and get 7 hours of sleep daily. Those are your keys to feeling more energetic long-term. Great article!! Thanks for the intel. I have been investigating pre workout as an option. I have some aggressive fitness goals and I thought it might help me workout stronger throughout my entire workout.
Anyway, before I go the pre workout route, I will try some dietary changes — clean eating, higher protein and organic. I was taking assault for the last 3 months and have used it in the past. I do cross fit and I thought that it would help me get through the WODs with less breaks and with an elevated HR weight loss.
My heart nearly leaves my body while on it and luckily I ran out and decided not to re-up. This article is a great start to anyone looking to start taking pre-workout supplements; I will say the initial bump you get does feel good but it wears off quickly. My only advice is that if you are wanting to take this stuff for a cardio style workout like crossfit, football, basketball, etc.
Once I got into my routines my max HR is now which for me I think is livable because I am active. Good Article. It makes you think you can do more, push harder, and last longer. The stimulants do work with regards to increasing heart rate and giving you a sense of additional energy, but PWS are not needed in order to get results or be on the top of your game. I experienced chest pains during an early morning workout and ended up being ambulances to a hospital.
It turned out to be acid reflux and not anything heart related. It was likely due to ingesting too much caffeine. I cutout all pre-workout stims for a month or so then started using ON Gold Standard Preworkout 1 scoop because it was certified as banned substance free.
I make sure to cycle off the Gold Standard 4 weeks on, 1 week off. Should I cycle off the Amino Energy as well? Are these products any safer than the other products out there? I only take the pre-workout during my workout days and not when im resting, same with Alpha Amino but im taking this twice a day. I have been taking C4 for many many years routinely with little to no cycle and it worked wonders for me but now i want off of it completely. I went to walmart because i caved and picked up one more rep to hold me for a bit with the cash I had and it was the worst experience of my life.
Never tried that brand Vince, but thanks for the heads up. Because there are so many ingredients in each different one, you never know what will give you an adverse reaction. Hi I take c4 this is my third day my first day I killed my workout. I got home and I was up after leaving the gym at 3 til 7 am. I felt my moods changing and just having mix mood changes. The next day the same thing but after I came down I had no energy to move.
Far as for the work it works. Hi Meka. I thought I had this great new job and ended processing this stuff my first few days. Alot of workers are having nose bleeds from it also. My best advice for you or anyone using or thinking of using C4 extreme please do yourself a favor and dont. This stuff is extremely dangerous. Great article. First of all great article Steve! You really hit the nail on the head with some concerns of mine.
Due to my schedule I mainly workout during late hours pm. I feel so stuck because the lack of sleep I get which in turn makes me tired at work then feeling too tired to workout which gravitates me to the pre-workout. Its such a vicious cycle I am in! Please help! What would you suggest? Should I try and wean off it, try plain old coffee, or maybe nothing at all?? Any more natural supplements I could try? Thanks for any input you may have! Great article and great feedback! I felt like I have been reading my own words.
Hi there! Reading the label it looks like most of the ingredients are all natural and not really dangerous. What do u think about this product? I have been using Mr. Hyde for years and they must have recently changed the formula because about 2 hours after my workout, I bagan having severe heart palpitations to the point where I had to call the paramedics and then go to the E.
I thought I was gonna die and I took the recommended one scoop, nothing more, and I took no other stimulant during the day. They told me to drink lots of water to flush it out of my system which I did and my heart rate went back to normal. I have since stopped my caffiene intake. Do you think my symptoms will improve? I also have been experiencing these side effects for months I have grown so dependent on the stim I believe. Have u been experiencing this as well?
I have had no caffeine for three months a week after I tried a half scoop of C4 and I went into full blown panic again. I basically pushed everything too far and now I have to do a lot of strengthening exercises due to my posture becoming poor and developing some arthritis in my collarbone and shoulder.
I was off of stims for god roughly 8 months or so went into a depression from the onset pain but im cycling on again and can finally workout once more. Has anyone here ever tried using the products made by Animal such as animal stack pak or rage xl? Just last night i managed to overwork myselfand possibly dehydrate my self from using a combination of animal stack and animal rage xl. Imanaged to get home before vomiting and being really naseous.
Any advice would be nice. Gives me a mood boost and caffeine like focus with a break from caffeine. I have been taking the preworkout Performix for a while now, and it gives you a big boost when you take it, and slowly releases after a long period of time so there is no crash. However take it in the morning because of the slow release, it takes about 8 hours to get out of your system. I would recommend it for anyone.
The things about pre-workouts is that because there are so many different ingredients that no one product will work the same for everyone. If I have not had enough protein throughout the day I may supplement with additional whey. I have only tried one pre-workout — Legion — Pulse which was recommended on a forum not unlike this one experienced trainer with an opinion.
I have had a good experience with this pre-workout and have not experienced any side effects. I do get the tingles, but read up on this beforehand and was not concerned. I feel the effects of the caffeine but have always been a coffee drinker so, this dosage is not huge I take less than the 2 recommended scoops.
I assume this is a natural byproduct of pushing a large muscle group to fatigue and close to failure. Any comments on Legion — Pulse? The dosages for the main ingredients seem to be listed. Any comments on the dosages for this product? That usually helps. A very worth honest read about preworkout supps. About to buy one actually and after reading it I decided not to. My body is so sacred to bet it in a Russian Roulette.
In our era today when there are tonnes of advance medicines in numerous aspects, tonnes of diseases also are emerging. So be careful guy. Choose wisely on this.. It contains mg of caffeine per scoop I have a high tolerance for caffeine. I just want to know how bad is this long term?
It can mess with your adrenals and cause other issues that may be difficult to recover from. What I mean is, even at low doses, you can become overly intense, focused, and unrelenting to the point where some people who may be in tune with your personality will take notice and think you may be a little off.
As a result, I am looking for a pre-workout where the intensity level and focus is there, but, much more subdued. Thank for sharing your experience. When it comes to protein powder, What is your experience and recommendation..? The gains were awesome everything was fine till I was in the gym.
Kindly suggest what am I supposed to do to get rid of this. I have stopped taking it right after though, but this is the second day am experiencing the same. Please help me out. I started taking shatter black onyx, and the recommended dose contains mg of caffeine from 2 scoops.
Shortness of breath, chest pains, heart beating out of my chest, dizziness, and this is well after my session. Cutting in half and seeing what happens but be careful taking this stuff…. Yea, try half of that, which is still a good amount of caffeine as well as all the other stims in it. Can not longer eat or drink many, many foods. Caffeine being on of the worst offenders.
So be careful out there! Hey, how are you doing now? I started with energize and recently started using C4. My first thought is that the stress placed on the body from all the stimulants is triggering this for you. I found my 15yr old son taking the C4 Extreme, we also found out that he was doubling up on the dose before his workouts.
I instantly took it away and locked it up. Good call. As you know, teenagers feel invincible and have little concern for the effects of things like this on their bodies. My 17 yr old works out 7 days a week and eats clean. He uses Venom preworkout and cycles off. He eats clean as well. What are your thoughts? This is really a great article. Thank you!. I also enjoyed readings the comments from you and the other trainer lol.
You backed it up very good with yoyr knowledge. I do have Gym Supplements -pre-workout -post work out I do belive its the dexturrs and not sure wat the other one. Any way since I bought I only use them rarely but I do use pro gym in the mornings sometimes. When ever i do take the pre-work maybe a little less then hall or even just a litte it.
Is it really worth it to keep using it?. Is it normal to feel like shit for example ignore people but at the same time I would blame the the stuff wat take. I barely use them though. Thank you. You backed it up very good with your knowledge. I do have Gym stoppani Supplements -pre-workout -post work out I do belive its the dexturrs and not sure wat the other one. I have multiple questions about dieting and pre-workouts, do you have a personal email or phone number I can contact? Is that true?
I really love this article… Im now taking c4 and metrx monohydrate together i take it.. My 23 year old son died 2 weeks ago by taking his own life. He was happy person and had a lot to live for. He also had maca and d-aspartic acid. Some of the known side effects are panic attacks, depression, anxiety, emotional instability. I am only writing this to caution people to the dangers of taking these supplements.
Thank you for sharing your personal story and I am truly sorry to hear about your son. I agree that anyone who has any form of mental illness or suffers from anxiety or depression should stay clear of these supplements. Wondering which pre workout supplement you would recommend for year olds who are lifting weights? If he is going to use a prework out which is healthliest for this young generation. The answer is none of them. An 18 year old kid has a strong cardiovascular system so I imagine any of these would work fine.
Perhaps to save any fear of recommendation…. If you were now which would you take? I think that sticking to the recommended dosage is very important as not every individual may have the same reactions. I drink preworkout daily, sometimes twice. I can still get 7 hours sleep and am dead tired. I just want you to advise me on taken C4, because i need more energy to work hard in the gym. You are doing a great job Sir Steve, keep it up thank you.
Steve — Thanks for posting this article. I have been away from working out for a while now, and recently had ablation surgery on my heart for an AFIB issue. When I get back to it, he only wants me doing low intensity, 30 minute work outs for the first 4 weeks, then build back into a normal routine. These sounded like a good idea, but with my heart issue, I am starting to think I should avoid all supplements, except maybe creatine and the occasional protein shake.
Hi I am 47 and was taking C4 for a year and a half at most times weekly, when I would play ice hockey, tennis or ride my mountain bike and got great energy.

Boost Elite has got the basics, like zinc, as well as powerful herbs to boost androgen levels, like Tribulus terrestris , horny goat weed, and fenugreek seed extract.
ZMA is a classic combination supplement of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6 that was originally developed to increase muscle and power gains in football players. If you compete in sports with performance-enhancing compound policies, DHEA is a no-go. When most people think of steroids, they are thinking of putting on muscle. But for many men, boosting the level of hormones like testosterone and HGH is the means by which they hope to restore their sex drive, libido, virility, and energy.
Zhou Nutrition makes a great horny goat weed supplement, thanks to its inclusion of other hormone-boosting compounds like Tribulus terrestris and saw palmetto. Well-renowned for its testosterone-boosting abilities among bodybuilders, Testo Xplode is a good option for anyone looking to boost testosterone levels without relying on a prescription steroid. It uses saw palmetto, horny goat weed, longjack, and other herbal ingredients to target testosterone levels. Modern Man aims to recreate the effects of testosterone—namely, lean muscle gains and body fat losses.
It uses a combination of caffeine and theobromine to achieve the fat burning effects; these two compounds work synergistically to increase fat metabolism to promote body fat loss. Best natural steroid alternative overall: CrazyBulk Bulking Stack. From muscle synthesis to sustaining high androgen levels, CrazyBulk meets all your needs. Zhou includes natural minerals and herbal extracts that work together to sustain high levels of testosterone. As the name suggests, CrazyBulk Bulking Stack is custom-built for putting on muscle as fast as possible.
Men over 40 face decreasing testosterone levels, which impedes their ability to sustain strength gains. Zhou Boost Elite attacks this problem directly with a multi-ingredient strategy for naturally boosting testosterone and sustaining muscle mass. It has cutting-edge ingredients like deer antler velvet extract and ornithine, which aim to naturally support high levels of human growth hormone, or HGH. A natural steroid alternative is category of supplement that can help you push past these limitations and increase your strength and muscle mass gains.
They combine plants and herbal extracts that are thought to boost testosterone , increase human growth hormone , and accelerate muscle repair and synthesis. A thletes who compete in sports that use drug testing standards may want to think twice about natural steroid alternatives, because while they do not contain actual steroids, some products do contain precursors, like DHEA , that are still on banned substances lists. Of course, some people find this one of the attractive aspects of natural steroids alternatives: including ingredients like DHEA, a testosterone precursor, is seen as evidence that natural steroid alternatives actually do increase levels of endogenous steroids.
For our natural steroid ingredient rankings, we only considered supplements that had ingredients with a proven track record of boosting hormones or natural steroids linked to gains in muscle mass or athletic performance. This included ingredients like DHEA, a testosterone precursor, horny goat weed, which is used to boost testosterone and other androgens, as well as more fundamental ingredients like zinc and magnesium, plus some of the more cutting edge ingredients like DIM and rhodiola.
We sought to have balance in our rankings between newer and flashier ingredients with early but promising research, and tried and true formulations like ZMA. Among those remaining, we looked for supplements that used doses of their active ingredients that corresponded to the dosages used in scientific studies that successfully used these ingredients to either augment performance or increase levels of specific hormones in the body.
Finally, we applied our usual criteria of purity and clean supplement design: we axed anything with too many binders, fillers, and artificial coloring agents. The result? The top-performing natural alternatives to steroids for people who are looking to build muscle, get stronger, and perform better. Natural steroid alternatives are designed to mimic the benefits of real steroids. Natural steroid alternatives, on the other hand, do so indirectly: they provide the building blocks that your body uses to synthesize steroids and hormones, or they enhance biological processes that improve the efficacy of the natural steroids your body already makes.
The fact of the matter is that no natural steroid alternative is going to outperform a prescription-grade anabolic agent, but you can still reap many of the same benefits using a natural steroid alternative, on a lesser scale, without worrying about the health effects.
Broadly speaking, people seek two related goals when they try to boost levels of anabolic steroids and hormones in their body. They are either seeking to improve muscle growth and recovery, or enhance virility, libido, and sex drive or both. Hormones like human growth hormone and testosterone directly improve your wellness on both of these fronts. The natural steroid alternatives that work the best will be the ones that are most successful at boosting anabolic hormone levels.
Taking mineral supplements with zinc and magnesium can boost testosterone. When you think about natural steroid alternatives, the first thing that springs to mind is usually obscure herbal extracts, but the scientific research indicates that many people should start with the basics. Deficiencies in zinc and magnesium have been connected to lower levels of testosterone and growth hormone. One study, published in in the scientific journal Nutrition, found that zinc levels in the blood were positively correlated with testosterone levels 1.
Similar work published in in the International Journal of Endocrinology found that magnesium levels are strongly related to testosterone levels too 2. In both cases, the prevalence of mineral deficiencies and decreased testosterone increased with age. This means that older adults should pay particularly close attention to their mineral intake, and consider a supplement such as ZMA to increase zinc and magnesium levels.
DHEA is the strongest steroid alternative you can buy over the counter. DHEA is a precursor to testosterone, and scientific research indicates that it can substantially boost testosterone levels. The same study warns that many lower quality DHEA supplements have not taken the requisite steps to ensure that the active ingredient is actually biologically available. In addition to its testosterone boosting abilities, DHEA may be able to aid erectile dysfunction.
The same research above cited emerging experiments that indicate that DHEA in small doses may be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction, though higher quality studies are needed. Tribulus terrestris is great for libido, but not for muscle gains. The herbal extract Tribulus terrestris is a common ingredient in many natural steroids, with manufacturers claiming that users can experience significant gains in muscle mass and muscular strength, as well as improvements in libido.
However, scientific research into the performance benefits of Tribulus terrestris for athletes has been disappointing. One study at Southern Cross University Lismore in Australia looked at the effects of a Tribulus terrestris supplement on muscle mass and strength in rugby players over the course of a season 4. The researchers found no effect of the supplement compared to a placebo. A similar study was conducted by researchers at the University of Nebraska on weightlifters, and again found no benefits in terms of strength gain from a Tribulus terrestris supplement 4.
However, there is some research that indicates Tribulus terrestris may be useful for increasing libido and combating erectile dysfunction. Research in animals has demonstrated a consistent effect of Tribulus terrestris on a wide range of measures of sexual function, though research in humans is limited to date 5.
Ginseng supplements are strong performance enhancers. A comprehensive review on the performance-enhancing effects of a wide range of herbal supplements published by Luke Bucci in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition cited ginseng specifically ginseng varieties native to Asia as consistent performance-enhancers in clinical studies 6. For athletes in training, ginseng might be the best legal steroid alternative you can get.
Rhodiola can directly benefit both strength and endurance performance. Rhodiola rosea is a plant whose herbal extract has been intensely studied as a potential performance enhancer for athletes. Fourteen trained men took a rhodiola supplement for four weeks, then had their cardiovascular function assessed in a standard athletic test. The experiment was repeated on the same men, but using a placebo instead.
