With so many of us today suffering from body image issues it is easy for companies to market on our weaknesses. Recently a well-known YouTuber put a video out on his channel about prohormones and the products he and the company he is afﬁliated with the sell.
Basically promising to deliver you results similar to that of anabolic steroids with no side effects. They throw out slick terminology like DHEA, 1-andro, and steroids, size, mass etc. as trigger words to get us to buy.
What companies like this do is marketing to the individuals who are willing to try anything legal, that will give them the advantage to put on muscle and mass. I have been this individual many times over with little to no success. Trying product after product because a well known ﬁtness individual or YouTuber promised me amazing results. Supplement companies are taking advantage of people who are uninformed and uneducated on topics like this. They employ well-known ﬁtness individuals to promote and sell their products all the while making a commission themselves.
Consumers see people they trust and follow via social media and assume the product must work if this person is telling me so.
There is an inherent danger to thinking this way and not doing your own research. Companies who promise you muscle growth similar to that of anabolic steroids are lying to you. There is nothing you can buy over-the-counter that will give you the same results as illegal anabolic steroids. Furthermore, because of legislation, supplement companies are unable to use a laundry list of compounds that will increase testosterone levels or promote muscle growth.
There is no miracle drug! Individuals trying to sell consumers a “new drug” are only marketing to our insecurities. Even anabolic steroids will not bring you the size and growth expected without hard work and dedication behind them.
