Natural Steroids Explained

What can you tell me about the new natural steroids marketed as dietary supplements? Are they safer than anabolic steroids? Jay / Minnesota
Synthetic steroids are available legally only by prescription. But dozens of "natural" steroids are now sold over-the-counter at many health food stores. Because these products contain natural substances, supplement manufacturers can market them as dietary supplements that increase strength and build muscle. But these so-called natural steroids are still anabolic steroids and can have the same harmful effects as synthetic steroids. Side effects may include:
Increased risk of cardiovascular disease
Serious liver disease
In men, infertility, baldness and enlarged breasts
In women, facial hair, baldness, deepened voice, changes in menstrual cycle
In adolescents, stunted growth
Part of the appeal of both natural and synthetic steroids is that they temporarily increase muscle mass. But the adverse effects far outweigh any potential benefits.
One natural steroid that has received a lot of attention is tetrahydrogestrinone (THG). Until recently, THG was marketed as a dietary supplement for enhancing athletic performance. But researchers have found that THG is actually a chemically altered version of another banned anabolic steroid. For this reason, it doesn't meet the definition of a dietary supplement. The Food and Drug Administration warns that THG is an unapproved new drug and little is known about its safety.
