Technology has opened a digital gateway - especially for young men seeking to purchase & use just about anything to increase muscle mass / reduce body fat…but at what cost?
A decent % of young men (18 and up) are experiencing side-effects…stemming from: bodybuilding supplements / testosterone stimulator/s (ergogenics).
What to consider?
1) Supplements are not regulated by the FDA (however, some companies go through a verification / approval process).
2) Bodybuilding supplements maybe laced w/ heavy metals / stimulants / hormones, and etc.
3) Lab test may show an adulteration in supplements / herbals and etc.
As of 2017, in the USA, pro-hormones are illegal - that, however, doesn't stop individuals from purchasing elsewhere.
Some young men may suffer from irreversible side effects:
- erectile dysfunction,
- poor sexual performance,
- hair loss and etc.
Who to blame?
Online, anyone can market them-self as a fitness guru / bodybuilder – claim whatever status (provide personal opinions which seems to get far more attention than facts).
Example: YouTube bodybuilders / internet models may receive compensation to provide video reviews (emphasizing, and possibly, exaggerating benefits of fill in the blank)…while failing to provide scientific evidence).
Furthermore, CEO/s of supplement companies use the same platform.
