You thought it's not possible? Wrong! Today, you can buy anabolic steroids legally, without breaking the law or FDA regulations. You will even have no problems with customs or tax authorities.
There are drugs available exactly simulating the action of various anabolic steroids such as nandrolone, trenbolone, testosterone enanthate, primobolan, Dianabol or oxandrolone, which are fully legal in all countries.
How do xenohormones work? As their name suggests, they are not real hormones, but compounds foreign (xeno in Greek) to human body, showing the same effects (and sometimes also side effects) as corresponding hormones.
Modified tocopherols and tocotrienols are xenohormones corresponding with anabolic steroid hormones.
It means that they are stimulating the same processes in the human body – like protein synthesis
Legal anabolic steroid equivalents are commercially available only since the second half of 2011 but some professional athletes are apparently using them since early 2010.
The first mention of the use of xenohormones by top athletes in official media (by Associated Press) was the news about the Russian swimming team using them at 2011 World Championship in Shanghai.
Xenohormones (sometimes also called pseudohormones) are not real hormones, but they act as such. Some xenohormones are naturally occurring in the nature: there is a wide range of phytoestrogens and other xenoestrogens in our food and all around us.
What does it mean? It means that if you eat a soy meal (to mention one notorious source) you also ingest some compounds stimulating your estrogen receptors and causing estrogenic side-effects.
