1.There Are Tons of Fake Steroids
In general, the best steroids are made by known, licensed and approved pharma companies. Since those drugs are considered medicaments, they require a prescription. As a result, many people pick up the phone and call the dealer.
A frequent practice on which many underground producers rely is using the same compound for all kinds of steroids. In short, those “business geniuses” sell “different” anabolic steroids but put the same thing in all of them.
Another even more profitable scam is to sell underground anabolic steroids with no compound content at all. In other words, the buyer ends up paying for nothing. The substance sold to him is usually just oil and water. The result is a shredded wallet.
2.The Lack Of Control and Filtration
Most of the active ingredients come from China. The underground manufacturers that purchase cheap raw materials from overseas obviously don’t offer high-quality products. As with everything else, you get what you pay for.
As a result, many products contain heavy metals due to the lack of control and filtration.
3.The Supplement Industry and The Underground Steroid Chains Are Connected
The supplement companies benefit from the use of steroids in bodybuilding. The results produced by the drugs keep the expectations and the number of supplement sales high. Ironically, some people who work in the supplement industry also work as underground steroid dealers. Rumor has it that this niche pays quite well and includes big names.
