Are Prohormones All-Natural? I’m Not so Sure!

Although this post may seem a bit rhetorical, as the prohormones supplements have all been banned, there was one thing I wanted to touch on before the ban occurred. I have seen a lot of prohormones claiming that they are all natural or contain only natural ingredients or anything like that. I want to be sure to nip this in the bud right away, in my opinion, pro hormones are not all natural. I will defend my supplements forever but I have to draw a line somewhere. The line is that any kind of prohormone is a natural supplement,  by its very definition, this supplement is something that is created.

I’m pretty sure that something that is created somewhere by people is not something that we could consider all natural. However, it is interesting to see, or I should say was interesting to see that a lot of supplements that were prohormones were claiming to be all natural before they were all banned. It is somewhat of a trick that we fall for when we see natural or all-natural in anything, not just pro hormones. To me, this is just another case of companies trying to get away with as much as they possibly can. We have all heard details of something you claiming to be something that it just is not.

Unfortunately, the world of supplements is no exception to this rule. Would I say that this is the main reason that these supplements were banned? No, I don’t think that this is the main reason. However, it could have been a supporting factor in the final decision. As time continues, we will see  more and more different variations of the whole “it’s not a prohormone but it is” with that whole category. I just hope that in the future the companies choose how to show off their product to us and do not use misleading claims or anything on the label that is not what it claims to be.

all natural for real

Yes, I know I am a bit of a dreamer and this one but one can always hope, right? Is this something that sounds familiar to you, have you been duped in the past by some product, no matter if it is a supplement or not, misleading you in some way? If so, be sure to head over to our social pages and let us know what old trick or gimmick you have fallen for in the past, I am sure that this one is going to get pretty interesting. To close up this post, no pro hormones are not all natural. Even if some of the best of the best contains natural ingredients they definitely were not made in a way that was all natural. It is so easy and today’s crazy and chaotic world that we live in, it’s not really check it out or do any research into what a supplement label says. However, I also think that maybe we shouldn’t have to feel the need to carry out research on our supplements. I think that we should have supplements that contain honest labels and are honest upfront about what is in their product.


As time goes on, we have already began to see a trend towards companies being more transparent with the consumers. As more and more things continue to happen with the current state of prohormones, maybe we will see something that is the closest to being all-natural as possible, I will remain optimistic.

My First Experience with Pro Hormones

What I’ve Learned and What You Can as Well with Pro Hormones

I remember when I took my first pro hormone. I was in my early 20s, now that I still think it’s too early to be doing it, and it was through peer pressure. It was actually an older group of friends who had begin working out shortly after I started. I remember noticing that they were pretty big for just starting out when I looked like I have a lot of catching up to do. They were pretty cool about it though and actually offered me some advice on what I can do after I had complemented them to be nice.

They had mentioned that there was a supplement, one that is now banned, that they were taking that was putting on this much muscle. The buddy said he would give me a bottle of it for 20 bucks, and I thought I might as well give it a shot. I kind of kept it a secret from my girlfriend at the time because I didn’t want her to freak out. I had read about the supplement and really wanted to get increased muscle so I threw caution to the wind.

One of the first things that I noticed was just how fast I was packing on weight. I was gaining around a pound a day. Yes that is right in about a week I had put on 7 pounds and had really like the feeling I had during my workouts. It was after that that I began to notice that I would have some pain in my side. At first, I thought it was something that I was doing during my workouts. Maybe I have pulled a muscle. But as the days went on and I still stayed with taking the supplement, it just became more and more prevalent that the supplement was doing it to me. This is not to say it is completely the supplements fault, I was not drinking enough water which is something that I should have been doing the whole time.

However, after about two weeks into taking the supplement, I realized that it was so tough for me to drink that much water in the day. I foolishly stop taking the supplement right away without any post cycle therapy. I was just so freaked out by my sides hurting that I wanted to just get the supplement out of my body as quickly as possible. I didn’t want to take the time to wait for a post cycle therapy product to show up.

It was a regrettable first experience but something that I am proud to have gone through because I learned just how serious it is to do your part when taking supplements. Just let my story be a guide to you, if you’re going to take this stuff, be serious with it. Take the supplements for what they are and that is serious. Don’t be foolish and think that you can skimp on certain things or not do certain things that are recommended by the makers of the supplements. These rules are here for a reason, to help you if you want the big results you are going to have to work for them.

Side Effects of Prohormones: Watch Out for These Dangers

Although you can get great results from using prohormones the right way, some people are more inclined to experience side effects than others. What is bad is that this will be random from person to person, but if you watch what is happening with your body you notice anything strange simply discontinue use at once.

If you were on the fence about wondering if something is happening and happening or not to you let’s look at some side effects and see if any of these applied.  I want to make a special note here that I am in no way a certified medical professional and claim no responsibility for what you do after you read the side effects these are just what I have found to have had to happen, please consult your medical professional, in any case.

The main side effect that I have seen happen before is an increase in acne, usually around my back and my face. Now it is an anything super drastic but for someone who usually has a clear compact complexion there will be patches were pimples can pop up. Usually if I plan a pretty strict face washing regimen I can make it go away but even if I miss one day, I would not be surprised, are using pro pro hormones, to wake up with a couple of pimples.

Beyond that, hair loss can be something that can happen, in rare cases. If you notice is happening stop prohormone usage immediately, and consult a doctor to get your levels checked out. Well most of these are cosmetic side effects, there is a one that is very serious, and this is gynecomastia. This can occur due when these prohormones start messing with your estrogen levels and it responds with more estrogen than it normally would to help, battling it affects of the pro hormones that it doesn’t know are supposed to be happening.

Prohormones: Where Do We Stand with New Laws?

The Uncertainty of Prohormone Supplements

As you have no doubt heard, there was a recent huge ban on prohormones. Last I had heard, it was actually going to be all of the prohormones. This is something that has happened in the past with steroids but with prohormones being the safer and, at the time, legal alternative. Where do we all stand now with our “safer alternative” being banned? Well, luckily, there are some places out there that have found something that replicates those supplements that are now banned. So, if you need to find the greatest prohormones, you are in luck. There are supplements out now that actually give you the muscle building power of these supplements, but they aren’t banned. These supplements are not banned because they are not technically prohormones, but we will get back to that. Let’s talk about the reaction to this ban on the internet.

I have been checking in on the popular forums for this subject and opinions are mixed, to say the least. Some people really seem to think that everything will be banned and that there is no way that any supplement will come close now that the ban is final. Others will say that this is something that really can not be fully stopped but only delayed time and time again.

I tend to agree that both sides are right in their own way. We had to look into this ourselves as we were on the verge of beginning this website and were worried about the current state of these kinds of supplements. Because of this, we looked into the issue and actually found that all hope was not lost. There were products that were known as perfectly safe alternatives to prohormones of any kind. Our too good to be true sirens went off at that point and we knew that we would have to dig a little further.

Well, luckily there are companies that have been making legal and safe (even now) alternatives to prohormones. Even better, there is more than one company so you have a lot of options, well at least a few, here’s more about that below.

The bad thing with us needing to look into a whole new area for safer alternatives that aren’t being banned is now a whole group of us is subject to being ripped off. So, we worked on bringing you the most trustworthy ones which are covered in this

To sum it up, you need to be careful because you need to watch out for the supplements that are new and not trusted. I would recommend that you stick with companies that have certifications and are popular among the public. Even though we are dealing with the after effects of a prohormone ban, there are better choices that you can make.  One example of a bad choice would be this recent news story about prohormones being used in sports. This is another example of the pressure that teens face when playing sports and that need to rise above the competition.

What to do After Taking A Cycle of Prohormones

One of the things that I think get discussed the least but is still very important is what to do after you run a cycle. In case you don’t know, a cycle of a supplement, namely a prohormone, is the amount of time that you take the supplement before going off the cycle, and discontinuing use for a set amount of time. We are talking about some serious results here so you have to understand that most of these products are just not safe for year round consumption.

With this in mind, we need to really think about the importance of using post cycle products and what can happen if you do not. First things first, your organs after a prohormone cycle, will definitely need some love. A good post cycle product will provide a sort of cleansing to your organs. I am sorry that I can not put this any better at the moment, but that is what it does.

Another benefit of taking a supplement after using prohormones is that you will notice a much smaller chance of developing too much estrogen or extra tissue where there should not be any. Depression can occur after a prohormone cycle, and some post cycle supplements will help to better balance your mood and keep everything in check there.

In doing research for the best kinds of things to do after taking a prohormone cycle, let’s say that we ran into some horror stories regarding people who did not heed the warning to take care of yourself after taking prohormones.

Most users seem to report the loss of muscle gain. This can be a pretty big deal, considering the money that you spent for that muscle gain is now out the window. Even worse, there can’t be many worse feelings than watching all of that progress that you worked for go out the window.

We all know that we work very hard in the gym to obtain the results that we do. This is why it is important to notice that not taking a post cycle supplement could completely derail all of those results that it took you so long to get. I know that it might seem like an extra step and one that you might not need but trust me, it is something that you need to remember to do. Sure, nothing might happen if you do not take a good post cycle therapy supplement, but do you really want to take the risk?

I know that for me, I will gladly plop down a few bills to not worry or watch all of that hard progress that I made go out the window. I hope that you all will at least consider looking into post cycle as a great way to keep your body in the best possible health.
