These consequences can be caused by various reasons – individual features of the body, an illiterate built-in scheme for taking AS, which leads to imbalances in the course, as well as sharp changes in the hormonal background.
In the arsenal of each professionally trained bodybuilder should be a certain set of drugs. These include:
Chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) refers to the group of protein hormones that occurs in the placenta (womb) of pregnant women. Gonadotropin is synthesized in the body of a woman in the first trimester of pregnancy and is the basis for the subsequent formation of estrogens and progestins in the yellow body. HCG comes from the bloodstream into the kidneys and is then excreted from the body with urine, which is then used to produce the hormone in the form of a drug. The introduction of gonadotropin into a woman’s body contributes to ovulation, and increases her chances of becoming pregnant.
The attention of the bodybuilders Gonadotropin attracted for another reason. The fact is that this hormone has in fact the same properties as the luteinizing hormone that appears in the pituitary gland. In young men luteinizing hormone provokes the formation of sex cells in the testicles, stimulates interstitial cells (Leydig cells) and promotes the production of sex steroids – testosterone and dihydrotestosterone.
To date, many researchers from the United States agreed on the opinion that, for maximum effect, chorionic gonadotropin should be given in the form of an injection. Consuming it orally, for example, as a dietary supplement, does not produce the expected results.
The drug hCG for injection (for intravenous or intramuscular injection) is on sale in any pharmacy. The drug solution is prepared with the help of a liquid (usually sodium chloride), which is attached to the medication. Gonadotropin almost instantly enters the bloodstream and begins its action. Moreover, it is unique in its ability to influence the organism “in two waves” – the first peak of the level of the hormone occurs in 2 hours after administration, when the plasma testosterone concentration in the blood is maximum; the second – 46-48 hours after the injection.
If we talk about how much gonadotropin should be stabbed in bodybuilding, then its dosage depends directly on both the AC scheme and its intensity.
During the reception of gonadotropin, there may be similar side effects, as with taking testosterone:
To date, HCG remains one of the most popular hormones among professional athletes. However, despite the beliefs of some athletes, hCG is not able to replace steroids and does not have a fat burning effect. Also, you should be careful when using it to raise testosterone levels – hCG is an unacceptable dope.
