Androgens, steroids, anabolic steroids, steroids androgenic and anabolic effects ... What are these terms? What do they mean? Or all of this scientific slaver invented only in order to fool our heads? In fact, maybe it's just different names for the same thing - synthetic hormones? If you consider yourself a "special", try saying that such methandrostenolone - anabolic steroid? androgen? androgenic anabolic? The correct answer is: the one and the other, and the third.

Yes, the same cholesterol, which doctors believe the enemy of mankind's number one. cholesterol deposits on the inner walls of blood vessels annually destroy more people than all other diseases combined.
Paradoxically, the same cholesterol gives life to human reproductive system and eventually all of us. What is cholesterol? It is a long molecular chain. Suffice it to rearrange the "links", something to throw, and to add something, and cholesterol is converted into sex hormones - testosterone and estradiol. The first is responsible for the male gender, and the second - for women. Huge difference in functions, however, both hormones are structurally remarkably similar. The reason is already known to you: they have in common "dad" - cholesterol. And testosterone, and estradiol in the medical language called steroids same time steroids or steroid hormones called several tens of biochemical compounds, one way or another related to the sexual sphere. For example, for the prevention of pregnancy, women take drugs that also belong to the steroid hormones. Cortisone ointment, which treat eczema - also from the category of steroid hormones.
