Anabolism is the process of growth and construction in the body, and anabolic refers to initiating the synthesis of complex molecules by encouraging metabolic activity. Bone and muscle growth are two examples of anabolism. Androgenic refers to the group of sex hormones that are considered “male” hormones, which perform many functions throughout the body.
Available Anabolic-Androgenic Therapies
- Oxandrolone is a medication that can be taken orally. It can help promote weight gain for those who have experienced drastic weight loss due to trauma, severe injury, or chronic infection. It can also be prescribed to help compensate for increased protein catabolism (the breakdown of molecules), which can occur with prolonged use of certain medications and other conditions. There is evidence to show that Oxandrolone may support Men’s Health, as well.
- Nandrolone is an injectable medication currently used to treat serious conditions that lead to degeneration and/or wasting. These include renal failure, anemia, osteoporosis, and HIV/AIDS. Emerging studies also show potential benefit in using Nandrolone for joint pain in men and for other Men’s Health issues.
- Stanozolol is a synthetic anabolic steroid that is structurally similar to Testosterone. This medication is available as a topical cream and a capsule, and it is used to treat hereditary angioedema (a condition that causes severe swelling). Stanozolol encourages anabolism and helps reverse tissue breakdown.
