The “Examples from the Internet” do, in fact, come from the Internet. We are able to identify trustworthy translations with the aid of automated processes. The main sources we used are professionally translated company, and academic, websites. In addition, we have included websites of international organizations such as the European Union. Because of the overwhelming data volume, it has not been possible to carry out a manual editorial check on all of these documents. So, we logically cannot guarantee the quality of each and every translation. This is why they are marked “not verified by PONS editors”.
Throughout the history of steroids we have seen a beginning that started with simple testosterone to a bevy of various forms of testosterone being created. Through that same history of steroids we have seen countless forms of orals and injectables born from Nandrolones to more modern Trenbolones and everything in between. We have seen anabolic steroids rise from the dust of weight room floors used only by those looking to compete in bodybuilding or power lifting to being used by many in every sport imaginable. We have seen a host of other changes throughout the sports world; nutrition perhaps becoming the biggest factor as many have begun to understand it’s role in the level of performance but as big as nutritional advances are nothing has yet to top anabolic steroids and that alone makes the history of steroids far superior to anything else in the competitive world.
The efficacy of some of the newer creatine formulations is a real concern for many athletes; with good reason. One of the most popular creatine serums currently on the market has recently come under harsh criticism by the scientific community. We analyzed the validity of these allegations in a recent issue of the Creatine Newsletter . Read the first part of a two-part newsletter series discussing a scientific study that compared the ergogenic effects of ordinary creatine monohydrate powder with that of a popular creatine serum; part two compares the ability of the same brand of creatine serum to raise serum creatine levels with reference to the elevation observed with creatine monohydrate powder.
