Pro-hormones: Steroids in disguise

0 Comment

I had a few questions lately about pro-hormones, and i need to point out some things here: Pro-hormones are steroids. They are not “more natural” or “less harmful” and as “powerful as the real suff”. They have the same suppressive effect on your own production of testosterone and your semen production, as the “real” anabolic […]
