    I wouldn't consider using either of these. But im just wondering, boosting levels of testosterone sounds very close to steriod use to me. Yet its legal?

    1. Most of those supps are legal, whereas steroids are illegal in most countries
    2. Steroids work and most of those supps don't
    3. Those supps are attempting to boost your natural test production. Steroids are providing test from outside of your body.

    Regular steriods are foriegn hormones that you inject in your body.

    The legal test boosters are just formulas that try get your body to produce more test...i personally have heard few legit success stories on these test boosters.

    Oh ok. My mum found them advertised in one of the booklets i ordered some protein & creatine from, she's convinced there sterioids than went on the biggest rant about how none of this stuff is good for me.

    Nice to know the difference.

    Sounds like a pro hormone. Looks like halodrol off the top of my head but not sure

    Went to this supp shop that he dubbed "a true powerlifting shop" and the guy behind the counter who had "at one point the biggest biceps in the world" talked my friend into it.

    I've never looked too much into steroids, but after looking at it I told him it would come up on a test. He was almost turned on by that.

    I have no grudge against gear for people who are at that point and really know what they are doing, but he's just not one of those people.

    Ha, no matter what anybody tells him he always buys GNC's gimmick of the month.

    He'll never learn.
