Types of Steroids

Firstly, not all Steroids are used for building muscle. There are many different types of Steroids available, for example, Cholesterol is a Steroid. In this article we will be focusing on Anabolic Steroids, which are Steroids that build muscle.

Most Anabolic Steroids have their own unique properties; they have different Androgenic/Anabolic Ratios and are available in a sterile liquid solution for injecting or in oral form, some Steroids such as Winstrol, are available in both forms. Many of the different Steroids we mention below contain the same Steroidal Hormone but with a different ester attached to it, different esters provide different half-lives to the Steroid.

Different Steroid Manufacturers

Underground

These types of steroids are generally made by non-licensed manufacturers and are not overseen by any regulatory board. Due to it becoming increasingly harder to obtain pharmaceutical grade steroids, most people opt for underground brands. The main problem with underground brands is no one knows what type of environment these steroids are produced in. They may or may not be produced in a sterile environment. There are however many big underground brands available that have hundreds of positive reviews, it is always best to stick with the big brands.

Vet Grade

As the name suggests these steroids are manufactured for veterinary purposes. Their intent is for animals, typically livestock, especially cows and horses. Vet grade steroids at one stage were very popular, however most people now opt for underground brands.

Pharmaceutical Grade

These steroids are made in licensed facilities and follow strict health and safety protocols, ensuring high quality products. There are 2 ways in which you can obtain pharma grade steroids, either by getting a prescription or by finding a steroid dealer who sells them.
