In urban Indian, college admissions on the sports quota and muscle building are driving young people to take health supplements and steroids.

About 78 % of the teenagers take at least one supplement such as tablets, energy liquids, steroids, and high protein stuff.

The ASSOCHAM Social Development Foundation (ASDF) team conducted the survey on the “Ill-effects of energy drinks and other popular dietary supplements on youngsters” in major States and cities during October 2011-January 2012.

Steroids sold as health supplements effective against heart diseasesA natural defense mechanism against diseases of the heart can be switched on by steroids sold as health supplements, according to researchers at the University of Leeds.

A previously-unknown ion channel in human blood vessels was identified by biologists at the University of Leeds. This ion channel can prove useful in inhibiting the production of proteins (cytokines) driving the early stages of heart disease.

Forecasted benefits of ‘fountain of youth’ steroids could be more if used in a combination with healthy lifestyle strategies such as exercise ad cholesterol lowering drugs, as per the research.

Natural defense mechanism against heart disease identifiedAccording to researchers at the University of Leeds, a natural defense mechanism against heart disease can be switched on by steroids sold as health supplements.

Biologists at the University of Leeds were able to identify a previously-unknown ion channel in human blood vessels that could possibly inhibit the production of proteins (cytokines) driving the early stages of heart disease.

The research suggested that expected benefits of ‘fountain of youth’ steroids will be much greater if they are used in a combination with healthy lifestyle strategies such as diet and exercise or cholesterol-reducing drugs.

Steroids sold as health supplements can guard against heart diseaseAccording to researchers at the University of Leeds, a molecule that is part of a family of ‘fountain-of-youth’ steroids (name because of their apparent ability to improve energy, vision, and memory) can trigger a protective effect to prevent heart diseases.

The molecule, pregnenolone sulphate, may limit the production of inflammatory cytokines that are proteins driving the early stages of heart disease.

Collaborative studies with surgeons at Leeds General infirmary have shown that this mechanism of defense can be switched-on in healthy as well as diseased blood vessels.

  Achievement of maximized energy levels for sporting performance

Achievement of maximized energy levels for sporting performanceAccording to a recently concluded study by researchers at the University of Hertfordshire, athletes who are training for the London Marathon can expect to deliver dramatic performance by having a close look at what they are eating and drinking.

It was found by Dr Peter Jones, a Senior Lecturer at the University’s School of Life Sciences that there are some food products and drinks, which can help sportsmen attain maximized energy levels while participating at competitive events.

From News-Medical.Net:

“The improvements in performance were only seen when the carbohydrate loaded was low in GI,” said Matt. “The mechanism behind this may be due to the increases seen in blood glucose throughout the time trial.”

Another research project undertaken by postgraduate student, Nick Tiller, found that athletes could maximise their performance through drinking mixed carbohydrate drinks, as opposed to those containing single carbohydrates only.

“This is important because, for example, if you drink commercially available sports drinks, you can only ingest 70 grammes of maltodextrin per hour, which may not be enough to maximise your performance,” said Dr Jones. “But if you supplement this with, for example fructose, you can open up two channels and increase the amount of glucose available to your body.

“There is no doubt but that the foods that we eat have a significant effect on performance. Those in serious training need to give this more thought if they are to maximise their performance.”

It is worthwhile to note that steroids, just like these food products and drinks, can also offer great gains to sportsmen when taken as per medical advice and instructions. Anabolic steroids such as Winstrol, Deca Durabolin, and Clomid have already proved that they are second to none when it comes to offering advantages to sportsmen for delivering amazing performances on a consistent basis. However, it must always be remembered that steroids and sports must not be mixed in the absence of qualified and complete knowledge so that optimum benefits can be achieved from them.
