Yes, it’s true that most of the steroids are illegal to intake be it South Africa or any other countries. But, it always not true. Ask any police or the Medicines Control Council in South Africa about the steroid use, they don’t have enough dedicated staff to effectively abolish the explosion in steroid use. However, they are trying to improve their skills for the betterment. But, in the real sense, it is not completely true that all steroids are illegal. Rather, some steroids are legal in SA.
But not all steroids are illegal. Some are legal too.
- It is illegal to use steroids for muscle building in South Africa. Anabolic steroids may only be used for medical conditions related to muscle wastage and hormone shortages. So, using it unnecessarily is wrong and illegal.
- It’s illegal for anyone besides a doctor, pharmacist or other health professional to sell anabolic steroids or anything labeled as such. So, it’s better to buy from a verified pharmacist only.
- It’s also illegal to have them in your possession without a prescription. So, if prescribed then, you can go ahead and buy the prescribed ones.
Despite the different types of side effects like male infertility or women health intoxication, anabolic steroids are common in the market. People do take them regularly. It is true that it is generally not possible to find places where you can get the steroids without any prescription. But in the real world, you are just a tap away from a seller. In the fitness and sports world, it is always available, once you’ve found a seller. So, the main motto is to find a seller. And you’re done. In general, an abuser takes 10 to 100 times more than a person who takes according to the medical prescriptions.
Let us say about an incident, just to prevent you from such wrong happenings. One user being anonymous told Health24 that we can always find steroid sellers at the gyms, especially the bigger ones. If you’re a person who really doesn’t need the doses, you need to be careful of these cons. And if you really need them as prescribed by the doctor, go ahead but buy from a verified pharmacist. Continuing with the incident, they approach you in the locker room and comment on your physique, thereby striking up a conversation with all their intention. Depending on your response, how well you respond to their flattering, they may offer suggestions of how you can bulk up easier. The rest is known, you’ll receive updates on your phone about what’s available, and the cost with some jaw-dropping offers like most of the shopping sites do. Not only the sellers, the customers, gym owners or even the police at times share the tip-offs. Not all, though!
Though, some steroids are legal in SA. Still, we should buy them only when we really need it otherwise a handful of exercises is enough to get the body fit and fine.
