I have a question regarding the long term usage of some supplements that i have started taking for weight training. They are legal plant based steroids produced by a company called BioSync in South Africa.
One is called ‘Testo Boost’ and the other is called Nitro CX-4 . They have produced great results for me and the guy in the health food shop that sells them claims that they are not dangerous like the illegal anabolic type animal steroids? What is your opinion? Are these legal ‘plant based’ steroids safe? Is there the potential for the usual problems associated with the more extreme and illegal steroids?
Hi Richard, I’m not familiar with these products but if you google them it looks very dodgy. The safety depends on 2 things: ingredients and on whether or not the company sells a clean, drug tested product. No idea on the ingredients for the 2 products you mentioned, and as far as clean I’d not trust these at all.
Point is that especially if you’re an athlete in a drug tested sport you want to be extra careful with smallish supplement companies that sell ‘steroid-like’ products, etc. So better be shaved than shorty and stay well away from this.
Some reality on steroids in pro bodybuilding:
If you want to boost testosterone naturally, try some 3×5 grams/day fenugreek and see what happens.
