    I know this isnt a steroid board and this topic has been discussed before but I couldnt find anything with a search.

    All I want to know is the difference between using steroids and growth hormones and the ups and downs of each.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Growth hormone (GH) or somatotropin (STH) is a protein hormone which stimulates growth and cellGrowth hormone (GH) or somatotropin (STH) is a protein hormone which stimulates growth and cell reproduction in humans and other animals. reproduction in humans and other animals.

    Anabolic steroids, also known as anabolic-androgenic steroids or AAS, are a class of steroid hormones related to the male hormone testosterone. They increase protein synthesis within cells, which results in anabolism (growth) of cellular tissue, especially in muscles.

    Thats interesting but I still dont know what would be better suited to a specific person.
    Do growth hormones have any side effects similar to overuse of anabolic steroids? :eek3:

    growth hormone can affect tissue growth in all aspects, which can lead to enlargements of organs- google GH gut for pics of people who's abused GH

    youre an idiot if youre even considering using them. something tells me that you do.





    Hey Broly's are there any supplements available to induce growth hormones?

    How do you people with fast metabolisms cope with weight gain?
    I eat alot every day like 5 times a day yet I still cant gain weight with gym work, its been like 6 months already!!!

    I'm sick of it, I need some supps to boost my growth. Can anybody please help a brother out here?

    Any info would be great.
    I'm already taking whey protein and creatine every session, plus multi vitamins every day as well as glutamine.

    This shit aint working, I need something else.

    if you're asking cause you're curious, its one thing. but from the sounds of it, you're asking cause you wanna take one or another, and for that you're an idiot. you are nowhere near the caliber of lifter that needs it.

    lots of food and heavy lifting will get you plenty of gains. and if you dont' have the dedication to do that, then you DEFINITELY should end yourself for thinking about GH or AAS
