As every bodybuilder wants to gain muscles, they use different types of steroids. The main source of the muscle growth is protein. Proteins are nutrients helps in growth of tissues, muscles. Steroids help in synthesis of more protein the body and thus give great physique. Steroids cannot be taken without a proper diet. Thus protein foods like egg white, milk, meat, Fish, shellfish, chicken breast and low fat dairy products should be included in diet while following a steroid cycle. Since proteins contain Nitrogen, the protein content in the body can be determined by Nitrogen testing. Thus muscles nitrogen retention is a requirement of every body builder for consumption of adequate proteins. The amount of nitrogen measured in the body can give an exact protein intake of an individual.
What Nitrogen Balance refers to? Source of muscle growth:
Nitrogen intake can be from foods like eggs, meat, milk, milk products and cereals which even containproteins. Nitrogen balance refers to the measure of nitrogen taken minus the nitrogen given out. Nitrogen testing is the laboratory method followed to test the nitrogen balance in the body and thus gives the protein information. Nitrogen balance can be existed in three states:
- Positive nitrogen balance: This is the state which describes the intake of nitrogen is more than the nitrogen output. In this state the muscle growth tends to be more. Consuming protein food at adequate rates can cause positive nitrogen balance. This state is always safe and best.
- Negative Nitrogen balance: When the protein intake is less than the required amounts, negative nitrogen balance occurs. It also occurs when individuals undergo starvation, physical injuries or intake of less protein food. The nitrogen excretion takes place in this state and there may be destruction in muscles.
- Equilibrium state: Here the nitrogen intake will be same as that of nitrogen output. The individual thus does not have a muscle growth in this state.
The body gives an indication when the nitrogen gets out of it and thus the individual should increase the protein content in the body by taking sufficient food. Nitrogen testing is done on urine, as 90% of the nitrogen excretes in the form of urine every day.
How steroids increase nitrogen retention?
According to study, there are many steroids which actually help in muscles nitrogen retention. This means they conversion of the proteins to muscles are achieved. Anabolic steroids are generally the best steroids used in the nitrogen retention and protein synthesis. They helps in increasing the muscle tissues and retains nitrogen in the body.Anavar is a type of anabolic steroid helps in protein synthesis and nitrogen balance is maintained. Testosterone is the best steroid which helps in higher synthesis of protein and is always chosen as the beginner steroid cycle. Primo is another type of steroid gives the best effects of retaining nitrogen. Dianabol also helps in gaining muscles quicker and protein synthesis is high. However the dosage should be limited to 4 to 6 weeks to avoid dangerous effects of dianabol.Finally, the work outs should be done for hours and consumption of proteins are mandatory for the best muscle growth.
