Swiss Sanctions Approved By WADA

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has issued its approval of recent sanctions on Roger Nachbur and Reto Eigenmann, two athletes from Switzerland. The two athletes have been banned for buying drugs on the internet. It was claimed by WADA that the case has been “noted with interest” but the anti-doping agency has refused to elaborate on the possibility of instituting similar rules.

Nachbur purchased “clenbuterol and EPO” while Eigenmann bought clomifene, testosterone, and trenbolone. The Swiss Olympic committee remarked that the two athletes had violated by the rules since they were in possession of the drugs. Despite the fact that there was no drug test involved, it was enough for the committee to believe that there was enough evidence that they were planning on using them.

Nachbur, a 30-year-old road cyclist, and 41-year-old speed skier Eigenmann are barred from competition through August 22, 2014. Both the athletes have not competed in the Olympics but fall under jurisdiction of the committee as they are national athletes. Nachbur was fined 22,000 francs (CHF 500 Franken Busse, 500 francs party compensation costs to Anti-doping Switzerland, CHF 1,200 legal costs) and Eigenmann was fined 1,700 francs (500 francs party compensation costs to Anti-doping Switzerland, CHF 1,200 legal costs).

WADA President John Fahey said this is the first time that athletes from Switzerland have been sanctioned for buying prohibited substances online and he applauds the efforts of the organizations that were involved and added that this case is a good example of the impact that public and law enforcement authorities can have when they share information with the anti-doping community.

Clenbuterol is commonly used by sportsmen to lose body fat and weight besides being used as a thermogenic drug and stimulant. Use of this performance enhancing drug is associated with aerobic capacity, oxygen transportation, and blood pressure improvements. Clenbuterol is medically recommended to treat ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), cardiovascular shock, arrhythmias, anaphylactic shock, and migraine headaches.

Erythropoietin (EPO), also known as erythropoetin or erthropoyetin, is used by sportsmen to improve the production of red blood cells and has become very popular with sportsmen, especially those into cross country skiing, biathlon, triathlons, cycling, horseracing, boxing, distance running, race walking, and rowing. It has the ability to improve oxygen carrying potential of the body to result in improved on-field performance and promotion of the sense of well being, motivation, feeling of invincibility, and mood. Trenbolone, on the other hand, is used to improve muscle mass, body strength, performance, and muscle definition and commonly used by sportsmen since it is metabolized by aromatase or 5α-reductase into DHT or estrogenic compounds such as estradiol. Use of this anabolic steroid can promote the count of red blood cells that further improves oxygen transportation ability of the body. Testosterone derivatives such as testosterone cypionate, testosterone suspension, and testosterone enanthate are commonly used by sportsmen, especially those into strength athletics, to benefit from improved performance, muscle mass, and body strength and lead to balanced growth and development of secondary male sexual characteristics.

  Olympic Doping Goes On, Says Conte

Pin it Share on Tumblr

@VictorConte, the founder and president of Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative or BALCO, who served prison term in 2005 after pleading guilty to conspiracy to distribute anabolic steroids and money laundering, has recently said that doping in Olympics is still going on.

Victor Conte was the man behind BALCO that supplied performance enhancing drugs to athletes until a federal investigation in 2003. The man behind the infamous BALCO steroids scandal is swearing these days to keep performance enhancing drugs out of sports. BALCO was accused by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) of developing the banned steroid tetrahydrogestrinone (THG) and Conte implicated five-time Olympic gold medalist Marion Jones, Tim Montgomery, Kelli White, Dwain Chambers, and NFL player Bill Romanowski.

Conte recently remarked that the Olympics anti-drug system is seriously flawed and many athletes are still cheating as high-ranking officials have a vested interest in not cleaning up the Olympics.

When asked about the kind of cheating that goes on now in Olympic sports, Victor Conte said athletes are not making the use of designer steroids these days but using fast-acting testosterone. During Helwani’s MMA Hour, Conte said testosterone derivatives or a modified testosterone molecule always show on mass-spectrometry tests and this is the reason why athletes are moving towards pure testosterone. He also said testing has taken away designer steroids and so many athletes are doing testosterone replacement therapy, which has left a huge loophole involving micro-dosing of testosterone.

He added the reason why today’s women fail to come anywhere close to women’s sprint records from the ’70s and ’80s is because they are using lighter versions of performance enhancing drugs, which are less detectable and less effective. Conte added that many people in the anti-doping bureaucracy dismiss or ignore him as his advice would lead to more positive tests in the short term and this is reason why he is termed bad for business.

Conte recently suggested that the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) should go through an independent agency such as the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) that can testify the entire roaster of Zuffa of nearly 400 professional fighters twice a year for somewhere between $1-1.5 million. He went on to suggest the possibility of carbon isotope ratio testing, abbreviated as CIR, which can distinguish synthetic testosterone in the urine.

The founder and president of BALCO added that testosterone replacement therapy is not bad and he has himself used testosterone treatments, beginning at age 46 and experienced a lot of benefits. TRT effectively allows athletes to use anabolic steroids as they want as long as they are within the normal testosterone range come fight time, a fact that was exposed by the case of Nate Marquardt last year.

Conte helped start the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, a new anti-doping agency for boxers and MMA fighters and is now attacking life with the energy and intensity of a revival preacher. He does not charge for his services and the list of his clients include mixed martial artist Cung Le, and Olympian Marlen Esparza (a U.S. boxer), and boxer Nonito Donaire. One of Conte’s clients, free agent outfielder Marlon Byrd, was suspended 50 games by Major League Baseball after testing positive for tamoxifen, which is a drug used for breast cancer treatment. The 34-year-old Byrd has publicly acknowledged a post-BALCO working relationship with Victor Conte.

If you want to join the world of professional sports or create and maintain high standards of health and fitness, Methyltestosterone is one of the best synthetic testosterone derivatives for you. A popular anabolic steroid with those into weightlifting and strength athletics, Methyltestosterone is a relatively safe drug when compared to other steroids and performance enhancing drugs.

One of the biggest advantages associated with Methyltestosterone is that it is extremely useful to improve the levels of aggression, lean muscle mass, muscle definition, and stamina. Medically, Methyltestosterone is recommended to people treated for androgen deficiency and is often prescribed as part of replacement therapies.

Also known as Testred, Methyltestosterone is an androgenic preparation that is available in oral as well as injectable forms.

The recommended dose of Methyltestosterone for replacement therapy in androgen-deficient males is 10 to 50 mg daily while the ideal dose is 50-200 mg daily for androgen therapy in breast carcinoma in females. Professional sportsmen use Methyltestosterone in doses of 100-300 mg per day for 3 weeks. Methyltestosterone can induce gynecomastia and fluid retention and therefore antiestrogens such as Arimidex or Tamoxifen should be used during post cycle therapy to counter these side effects. The anabolic steroid is commonly used as a cutting cycle steroid and has an active life of 6-8 hours. It is commonly stacked with Testosterone, Equipoise, and Deca Durabolin for a bulking cycle.

In order to maintain its efficacy and shelf life, Methyltestosterone is required to be stored at 25°C (77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° -30°C (59° -86°F).

Methyltestosterone abuse can lead to side effects such as shortness of breath, rapid weight gain, swelling, bone pain, increased thirst, memory problems, restlessness, nausea, and loss of appetite. This drug should be used with caution by people suffering from health complications such as heart failure, chest pain, heart attack, liver problems, kidney problems, high calcium blood level, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and enlarged prostate.

Methyltestosterone, available in oral and injectable types, is an efficient, safe to use, and cost-effective performance enhancing drug for sportsmen, especially those in weightlifting and strength athletics.

When used in amounts of 100-300 mg per day, Methyltestosterone can help sportsmen deliver dramatic performances without placing them anywhere near to steroid adverse reactions. However, the use of Methyltestosterone is always suggested after the same has been suggested by a certified specialist so that odds of Methyltestosterone misuse can be limited or removed.

The steroid compound is efficient in improving the level of aggression and is therefore popular among runners especially those in boxing, strength athletics, wrestling, and power lifting. The anabolic steroid can be applied in a sublingual form for quick advantages and can be easily bought online with or without a prescription. Besides its part as an outstanding aggression enhancer, Methyltestosterone is also efficient for treating androgen deficiency and is often suggested for replacement therapies.

Misuse of Methyltestosterone can cause to adverse reactions such as menstrual irregularities, virilization, clitoral enlargement, and gynecomastia.

Femara, also known as Liquifem and Letrozole, is an oral non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor used medically to treat hormonally responsive breast cancer after surgery. Professional sportsmen use Femara for controlling or preventing the formation of excess estrogens, especially after undergoing a steroid cycle involving use of harsh or aromatizable anabolic steroids (especially testosterone derivatives) and performance enhancing drugs.

Femara tablets contain a non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor, letrozole, and inactive tablet ingredients include magnesium stearate, maize starch, microcrystalline cellulose, colloidal silicon dioxide, ferric oxide, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, lactose monohydrate, polyethylene glycol, sodium starch glycolate, talc, and titanium dioxide. The chemical name of Femara is 4, 4’-(1H-1, 2, 4-Triazol-1ylmethylene) dibenzonitrile and it has the molecular weight of 285.31 g/mol at the base. Letrozole has the molecular formula of C17H11N5.

Letrozole is one of the most trusted drugs for treating specific types of breast cancer (such as hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer) in women after menopause besides proving its usefulness in preventing the cancer from making a return. Since this drug reduces the amount of estrogen the human body makes, it is admired by sportsmen as use of the drug helps them stay away from bloating and estrogenic side effects such as gynecomastia and oily skin. In addition to all these advantages, Letrozole use is also associated with the promotion of spermatogenesis in male patients suffering from non-obstructive azoospermia and treating endometriosis. Femera is also useful in extending help to sportsmen optimize benefits of anabolic steroids, including the promotion of growth hormone, cortisol, SHBG, hepatic production of binding proteins, HDL, and promotion of the growth and development of sexual characteristics.

Letrozole use prevents only ‘harmful estrogen’ and helps the body retain the ‘good estrogen.’ This means that sportsmen using Femara (Letrozole) can still reap benefits of estrogens like healthy immune function, healthy cholesterol levels, joint health, cognitive function, and muscle growth while staying away from bad estrogen side effects (excess estrogen side effects) such as oily skin, acne, and gynecomastia.

The recommended dose of Letrozole (Femara) to treat breast cancer is 2.5 mg once in a day and sportsmen use Liquifem in doses of 0.25-1.0 mg per day, with or without meals. Letrozole abuse can lead to side effects such as loss of appetite, headache, stomach pain, cough, hot flushes, night sweats, vomiting, and breast pain.

One of the most popular antiestrogens for sportsmen on anabolic steroids, Proviron is considered as the best oral androgenic steroid in today’s world. It is admired by sportsmen and health-conscious individuals across the world to stimulate the testes to make more of testosterone, the male sex hormone.

Proviron has the molecular formula of C20H32O2 and its molecular weight is 304.4716 g/mol at the base. The androgenic-anabolic ratio of Proviron is 30-40/100-150 and its active life is up to 12 hours; it can be detected within five to six weeks and has the chemical name of 1 alpha-methyl-17 beta-hydroxy-5 alpha-androstan-3-one.

The antiestrogen, also known as Mesterolone and Provironum, is medically prescribed to offer significant relief to hypogonadal males afflicted with testosterone deficiency and treat individuals with sexual dysfunction. The drug is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and has the unique ability to surge the release of luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone. It is also recommended to middle- and old-aged men experiencing declining physical activity and mental alertness and is highly effective in treating health conditions, including weak memory, disturbances of libido and potency, irritability, disturbances of sleep, depressive moods, reduced efficiency, easy fatigability, lack of concentration, and general vegetative complaints.

Proviron is also useful in promoting the development of secondary male sex characteristics in incidents of prepuberal hypogonadism and may also be prescribed as part of the substitution therapy where a loss of gonadal function has occurred post-puberally. Proviron may be prescribed to treat individuals afflicted with low sexual desire or impotency.

In the world of professional sports, Proviron is admired by sportsmen as it is well tolerated by the liver and does not impair spermatogenesis (process of producing sperm). Proviron can actually increase the quality and quantity of sperm and thus increases the chances of procreation (reproduction). It is commonly used by sportsmen, just before the end or at the end of a steroid cycle, to restore the production of testosterone. Proviron is also used by sportsmen on harsh and aromatizable steroids such as testosterone derivatives to avoid estrogenic side effects, including oily skin, gynecomastia, and fluid retention. In short, Proviron has the ability to make other anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs more effective by inhibiting their conversion to estrogens besides improving the count of circulating free testosterone in the body and providing a more hardened and quality look to muscles.

The recommended dose of Proviron for men is 25-100 mg per day, with or without meals. This drug should not be abused or used without medical recommendation and guidance else it can lead to side effects, such as oily skin, acne, fatigue, reduced libido, and painful erections. It is not recommended to pregnant and breastfeeding women or those suffering with prostate cancer. If Proviron users are taking anticoagulants, antidiabetics, cyclosporine, and thyroxine, medical guidance is very important as it can interfere with absorption of these medicines. In order to maintain its shelf life, Proviron must be stored below 30°C and kept away from direct heat, moisture, and sunlight.
