Questions & Answers A-Z

The Paleolithic diet usually enable we to do just that. The premise behind the diet is the fact that the bodies are genetically and evolutionary adapted to eating the foods of our Paleolithic ancestors and because human genetics have not changed because the time period, this is the kind of eating that humans are best suited for.

I weigh 12ib gt 4 children will juicer help Donnie help me and give me advice. Only I do recommend straining the juice in a cheesecloth or something similar, if you dont it will have little pieces of fruit and veg left in the juice.

I can tell you, from research and actual experience, that it is not necessary; but, it can help you to experience less withdrawals and unpleasant detox symptoms. Especially if you are someone who drinks coffee, eats a lot of sugar, etc.

Hi, Just wanted to ask a question. Is it ok to add Chia seeds or LSA to the juices, or even psyllium husk? I only see 2 different juices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but it says we have to drink about 6 juices a day. Do we drink 2 breakfast juices, 2 lunch juices, and 2 dinner juices? I decided I am going to do a 7 day juice cleanse, and I was talking about it to my boyfriend and surprisingly he said that he would do it as well.

How many juices should he be drinking, and should a pure protein be added? This works best as these recipes seem better suited for juicers. By evening of day one I had a screaming headache and was very nauseous. I ate a few saltines. On day 2 I ate watermelon and a grapefruit in addition to all my juices. I hate to think I ruined the main purpose—a detoxification.

I still have periodic headaches and was definitely Hungary this afternoon. On a plus side my juices are healthy and fantastic. The reason behind that is when food is consumed in its liquid form it has a much faster effect, as far as how nutrients enter the blood stream. Another note is you claim to be nauseated and have headaches.

This is common during detox. Your body has to work in overload to figure out how to get this awesome source of nutrients in and the junk out. I hope this helps!!! If you have netflix I encourage you to watch a documentary called Fat Sick and Nearly dead. Might bring your some encouragement as to why this is such a good thing!!: Also roughly what times do you have the juices.

Bianca, you most certainly can prepare your juices in the morning and take them to work with you. Just keep them in airtight containers in the refrigerator and they will be fine.

Thanks for responding Donnie. Would you recommend just starting off for 3 days first? Or i was thinking maybe 5 days? Thanks for getting back to me. I mainly want to do this for my skin and to feel good.

How long would you suggest to cleanse? You just have to read it. You drink the juice when you are hungry. I was wondering if I could have juice in the am for breakfast and for dinner, but have a light salad for lunch? Stephanie, while you can add a salad for lunch, that would defeat the purpose of a juice fast, especially if your goal is to lose weight quickly.

On the other hand, if you do add a salad and keep it all healthy no dressings you will lose weight and detox, just at a slower pace. I tried the 3 day juice fast. I found all the ones I tried very tasty and delicious to drink. I skipped the bruschetta tang because I knew I would not like the ingredients and substituted it for the Hulk.

I felt great the first 2 days and it was pretty easy, but then on the 3rd day mid-afternoon, I had to have solids. I was so hungry and much more so than I was the first 2 days. I will try again in a few weeks, or maybe just substitute meals with juices. I found your grocery list and tips very helpful and was able to make my juices very easily once I prepped all the veggies and fruits the night before and placed them in 1 lb ziplock bags.

Thanks for all your info and the great recipes! Hi my father needs to lose weight for major surgery to remove a trapped nerve from his spine. I want to set him up on this 3day plan ,would it be suitable and safe to put him on this diet? Any advise id greatly appreciated. I just made my first breakfast juice…. Any ideas on how it can be made smoother? Shopping today ready to start the diet Monday after all the easter chocolate!!!

I will try to hold on and make it…after all its only for 3 days. Any replies would be appreciated. I just had some major surgery 5 weeks ago.

Since then, I have had hives every single day! I am going to try juicing for 3 days to see if I can maybe get rid of whatever is in my body poisoning me! Shopping today, starting tomorrow! Hello- Today is day 1 of my 3 days juice fast. I have 3 small children and its been really difficult for me not to sneak a bite of the food I prepare for them. This is really hard. Is it common to get very weak when juicing?

I am only on the first day and getting really weak and light headed. Also, is there any fruit or veggie I should stay away from, anything that would not support cleansing? Started juicing on March 5…have to say some juicing recipes are working better for me than others. Im trying to keep an open mind and also exercise. Hope to reach my goal!!!! I started juicing yesterday.

I got hungry about three times but other than that I have been doing ok! Glad to say I am almost done with day 1 which is brutally hard! Being an athlete, I strive for hard challenges but this is something completely different! You all can do it! Do you have to juice certain recipes at certain times of the day? Or is it okay to juice anyone of these recipes at anytime of the day?

Thanks for your help. Is anyone else having issues with this…. It does the job but anyways…. I am having to use about double. Let me know if anyone else is having trouble with that. For ex I just used one stalk of celery, one bunch of spinach, 1 orange and 1 tomato and ended up with about 32 ounces of juice.

I know it takes a lot to make juice but just want to see if I am the only one. On a side note, this is hard as crap but I love a good test! Does anyone read there posts, before they send it in? You got 32 ounces of juice from one stalk of celery,a bunch of spinach, one orange and one tomato? Just started my 3-day juice fast today and I decided to blog my experience as a way to keep me motivated.

This page has been really helpful. I have been diagnosed with fatty liver though I am only 7 lbs overweight. But nevertheless, because I have been so fatigued and out of breath when I walk a few steps, I decided to get myself in shape. I have started exercising January 7 for 20 minutes daily and until now, no change in my weight. I have started to enjoy life again, though. I am not tired anymore everytime me and my family go out. Now, I can walk, run and play with them!

Anyway, I have been looking for a 3 day detox meal on the internet and thank God I found this. I will start today after I buy all the ingredients listed here. Thank you for this! Anyways, Im on day 3 of 7 and I think Im only going to do 3 days in total. I have a killer migraine. I might be battling a cold or something. I know its normal to get headaches but migraines.

I decided that I need to give this juicing a serious attempt in order to help me regain control of my weight before I start having more serious health issues. One day down so far and it is not as bad as I had thought. I have learned that a little ginger goes a long way. My biggest hurdle is bored eating. Thank you for the site. I will post updates on my progress as I try to push myself to become healthier. Your story has inspired me. Ultimately my goal is weight management — but I have realized that I eat when I crave food and therefore over eat.

Will a three day juice cleanse be long enough to remind my body and mind what nutrient hunger feels like? Going to start with the 3 day tomorrow!

Lets see where it will take me. I will combine it with walking an hour each night. Thanks for this blog dude! Hi thank you to Sanz and NS for your comments it really is a learning curve.

I have now completed a 22 day juice fast and now including green smoothies and raw foods with daily juices I plan to do this for the next three months. I have seen that many people experience hair loss from doing a juice fast and was wondering if anyone has had this problem and what has helped. Would it be ok to have only 3 juices and then as a treat have a lovely yoghurt honey and fruit smoothie or does this defeat the purpose. I did a 3 day smoothie fast as part of a 7 day detox and for the main meal i substituted the smoothie for salmon or tuna and salad and I still lost 3.

I am trying this juice cleanse with my sister to try and kick start juicing in our everyday lives. I am not hungry at all but I really just miss eating food! No doubt I feel lighter and have a bit more mental clarity than I usually do, I am not taking any vitamins or drinking coffee so this is a huge plus for me. I also feel very full all the time I can go with having 3 juices a day I will be fine.

Hi Donnie any advice on the best products to aid bowel movement I have brought aloe vera is this ok? Have decided to go for the full 30 days for health reasons so will need to incorrupt an eliminator any suggestions? Now on day 5 of the juice fast have learnt to peel all citrus fruit and have lost 3kgs have 6kgs to go however am feeling drained today and am thinking about adding steam veg in my diet as suffer from hypoglycaemia when is a good time to incorrupt food without affecting the results too much on the juice fast?

Good chance and enjoy the whole process. Definitely always leave skin on as it holds all the vitamins a bit of fibre too! Apple skin contains pectin which is fabulous for your health and aids weight loss. The only skin worth peeling off is citrus fruit because it will taste gross. Hi there I am on day three of juice diet and noticed a few things firstly I have followed most of the recipes as above however Last night I noticed that I am getting a sore throat from doing this juice diet also find the citrus fruits unpeeled too much leaves a waxy taste and feel.

Any reasons for the sore throat following drinking the juices? You have to peel all citrus fruits as they have oil in the skin that will taste bitter and even clog your juicer. Are you drinking lemon water in the morning? Coz that sometimes is the cause of sore throat…. And for example to start off I will use your receipes above so does that mean I just can repeat some 2 or 3 times a day even? Charlotte, welcome to JOJ. You can have any combination of the juices that you want.

I find it best to have one of each for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Make it fun, exciting, and interesting Charlotte. Try a variety of juices throughout the day and after a while you will know what types of juices work best for you. I just did a test juicing to get familiar with the juicer. I used apples…did not know I should core them and not use the seeds. I drank it all, will I die? I want to try it with my mom. I know I can handle it, but I doubt she can. Is there any tip on how she can do it, without her fainting of hunger?

Thank you in advance. She said there was no way she could do it but after seeing my results she decided to give it a shot. It was very easy for her and she went on juicing for a month. She wont have any hunger problems as long as she has a juice when she gets hungry.

If she can push her cravings aside she will succeed! I finished day three last night and have decided to continue. I feel great and I have lost four pounds.

Congratulations on the weight loss so far. Keep me posted on your progress! I am ready to start tomorrow morning!! Just finished prepacking all my juice meals. Will keep you posted! While smoothies would not have the same affect, would they still be considered a cleanse? My ultimate goal for this cleanse is not so much for the weight loss, but for the detox and for a transition back to healthy eating.

Could smoothies be a substitute for juices? Ann, you could still have a proper cleanse with smoothies or by eating just fresh fruits and veggies. It will just be a much longer process but still as healthy. I hope it gets easier tomorrow! Jess, let me explain how hunger works and how cravings work. Hunger is how your body tells you that it needs nutrients. When you have a juice you are giving your body plenty of nutrients to satisfy itself. Cravings are when your mind is telling you to eat out of habit, boredom, or for the enjoyment of it.

Even though you drink a juice, your mind can still not associate it as food. Just keep it up and if you have to, have more juice. It will get easier as long as you stick to it and keep focused on your goals. Can you recommend a juicer for someone on very limited budget? Paige, welcome to JOJ! Yes, you will need a juicer. The Hamilton Beach Juicer is great for anyone on a budget. You can see it here: It still works and I still use it. Is each of the recipes for one meal?

Like would morning glory be meant for one breakfast? I just want to be sure I am not taking in more than necessary. As long as you are taking in around 16 ounces each juice, you are doing it right. Hi There, Is there usually a good chance of a little weight loss doing this? Mariah, there is a good chance you will lose weight on the fast.

The weight loss is mostly attributed to how much weight you have when you start. Please read this article on how to eat after a fast: I have to take 50, iu of Vitamin D 3 once a week because of a vitamin D deficiency. Can I still take it while juicing? Susana, if the doctor told you that you need to take it, then keep taking it and schedule a checkup after a week of juicing to have your levels checked.

Im only doing the 3 day one its 6pm day 2 and i had 3. Does most people not have as many the first day. Its easier than i taught maybe day 3 it might hit me lol. If you are completely full after a only 3 juices then just stick with three. You can also lower the quantity to 12 ounces per juice and have more if you find that you are hungry but 16 ounces is too much. It sounds like you are on the right path Jamie!

Keep me posted and let me know how things go. Done the 3 day lost 8lbs didnt really do it for weight loss but feel great juices so nice GREAT website!!! Although my wife is hesitant of cutting out solids because she gets bad migraines like there are good migraines that are triggered by hunger.

After everything I have been reading, juicing could be the natural way to heal herself from these migraines. Can you help us out with this? Dave, welcome to JOJ and congrats to you and your wife for planning a juice fast. As far as hunger headaches, most hunger headaches are induced not from lack of eating but a lack of nutrition.

She will get plenty of nutrition while on the juice fast. Even if you eat, these symptoms can still stay because of lack of nutrition in what you ate. When on a juice fast you are loading your body up with so many different nutrients it will curb that hunger and the symptoms associated with it. Keep me posted and let me know how things go for you and your wife.

I wish you all the best this New year Dave! I have been on the Juice Fast for 3 days now what would be the added benefits of going further to the 7 or 14 day fast? TH, it usually takes a full week to go through a complete detox.

Other benefits would be the added nutrition and weight loss. That would ensure you are still giving your body the nutritional benefits of juicing. Toxins are released into your bloodstream that will get into your milk. Keep a diet of fresh fruits and veggies. I am thinking about doing this cleanse for the new year. I want to start fresh and clean but I have one question. I workout 3 times a week for an hour long.

If I do this cleanse, am I going to be able to work out? I ask because usually when I do I have to eat a lot of protein for obvious reasons. If this is a stupid question, well, I apologize but I thought I would ask rather than just do something the wrong way. D, welcome to JOJ and thanks for your comment. No question here at JOJ is stupid! If you have that question, others will have the same question. You should rest and relax during the first few days of your juice fast.

As far as protein you can add an unflavored protein isolate to your juices. Just keep them in airtight containers and store them in the refrigerator and they should hold for around 8 hours. I am new to this juicing experience.

I bought a juicer and a few items. I am thinking of doing the 3 day cleanse. I am looking to juice for a variety of reasons. To eat healthier, lose weight and have more energy. Any advice or guidance would be appreciated. Read this article to see what to do after your fast: As far as cooking, look up some easy vegetarian recipes to get you started. After a while feel free to start using proteins like chicken breasts or lean beef.

Let me know if you have questions. What other supplements are you taking? I seem to always get medium to large cucumbers. I usually drink spinach carrot and apple. James, just spoon off the froth or get a froth removing cup. Most juices will have some froth. Some more so than others.

Jacob, you should have between juices per day. There are six juices there for you to choose from. You can have any combination of them that you like.

Or you can have the same juice a few times throughout the day too. What if you did 2 days of juicing and the third day attempted to eat solid foods then juiced the remaining of the day? Rj, if you do that, you are hindering the progress of your fast.

Leave out the solids! Now that winter break just started I decided to try it for three days. Is it safe to juice at 16? Make sure your parents know about it and understand what it is you are doing. Best wishes to you! My husband and I are thinking about trying juicing; he has many health issues, diabetes for example and is on many medications.

He is concerned that he will need food to take with his medications. How can he safely do this? Terri, I always recommend talking with a doctor when doing a juice fast while on medications. Diabetes and juicing work really well together if you keep the sugars down to a minimum. If you would like to talk with someone who has diabetes and did an 80 day juice fast then head over to the JOJ forums and talk with Andy.

I wish you and your husband all the best Terri! I just started my 3day juice fast coz I have only 3days off.. Thanks A lot for your help.. Have a juice when you feel hungry.

Jade, anything with a rind on it should be peeled. Lemons and Oranges should both be peeled. Congrats on starting your first juice fast! They only have limes. How can I substitute the lemons? I work in a call center with a 30 min lunch and trying to find the best way to juice and get my drinks in?

Occasionally the centre is still mildly frozen so I just squeeze the plastic bottle to break down the mass and it soon melts. I am vegeterian,and having hypothyroidism and anemic. So I am using thyroid and iron tablets. Can I start this juice diet without any problems, While I am using these medications?

Victor, you should be able to highlight the recipes you want, right click, and select print selected. Hi was just wondering what the consistency of the juice should be as mine is more smoothie, quite thick with piedes of veg still in it? Louise, your juice should be about the consistency of water. You may want to strain your juice after it comes out or try to get a new juicer. What juicer are you using? Keep me posted Louise.

Would you recommend limiting how many of a juice you have a day? Say you will consume 5 a day, can you break it up into 2 breakfast juices spread out from eachother 1 from the lunch recipes and 2 from dinner? Ann, just have a juice when you get hungry. Let me know if you have any questions Ann.

I am excited to launch this on Monday! I have a question tho…. I am going to commit to the 7 day and see how that goes!

Looking forward to it!!! Why does your body need to digest food? To break it down, extract the nutrients, and pass the rest on as waste. When you juice the juice is already broken down, nutrients are already ready for absorption, and there is no waste.

Please read this article for a more in depth answer: Can i add 1 scoop of whey protein on my juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner? Can i still run 10km or do a 2-hour intense workout cardio, abs, obliques, arms, back, shoulders with 5lbs dumb bells while on this diet? Do you lose same amount of weight if you have carrot and orange juice with some other fruits…….

Remember, the less sugar, the better. Let me know if you have any questions. Hi Donnie… I just started the 3 day plan today But i was wondering does it makes a difference in drinking the juice or the results afterwards if my day starts by 1 PM and then i sleep by almost 1 AM.. So i had the breakfast juice at 1 PM today and then i will have lunch juice by evening and then dinner juice by almost 10 or 11 PM? Amey, there are no set times while on a juice fast. Just start your day off like normal and have a juice when you wake up and get ready for the day.

If you usually wake up and are up by 1, then have your first juice at that time. Hanna, sorry for the late response. The only thing you want to have is juice. If you do exercise keep it lite and easy. Susan, you can store your juices as long as you keep them in airtight containers and put them in the refrigerator. So if your hungry, have a juice Susan. Keep me posted on your progress.

I am in my third day of JOJ. Yesterday a horrible headache, just read could happen. Today I am better. The only way I could drink these juices is adding more fruits, ex. My question to you is, is still good this detox diet if at the end of the day I had 8 apples and 6 oranges? I will try to keep doing this diet as much as I can, though, I am getting tired, no because I am dying to eat because I am not unbelievable!!!

Loli, you have to come to a decision and decide if being bored with your juices for a few more days or weeks is worth the reward of your health. I know it is well worth it. When you add more fruits you are adding more sugar.

If you consume too much sugar it will get stored as fat. Lowering your sugar intake will help lose or maintain weight. You can do anything for a week or two if you really want to. Take a look at the substitution list http: Try heading into the recipe section of the JOJ forums and see whats there.

There are some delicious soup recipes that you can enjoy with your boyfriend too. And will me being loaded up with pain pills going to kill the whole purpose of doing a juice cleanse?

Megan, welcome to JOJ! As far as your meds stick to them and use them for pain as needed like your dentist will tell you. Let me know what happens. So I discussed it with the dentist before the surgery, and he suggested against it, but not for the reasons I was worried about.

He said that with all the antibiotics and narcotics I would be on, I really needed to be taking them with solid food to avoid nausea. Megan, if you start juicing but stick to plant based foods when taking your medications, that would be a great start for you. Let me know how things turn out. Hey Donnie, I was doing some research on fasting and came across your site. I was encouraged by your readers comments and I wanted to chat with you. I have been struggling with weight loss for about 5 yrs now.

However, with that said, I am above ground and grateful. Female-specific side effects include increases in body hair , permanent deepening of the voice, enlarged clitoris , and temporary decreases in menstrual cycles. Alteration of fertility and ovarian cysts can also occur in females. Kidney tests revealed that nine of the ten steroid users developed a condition called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis , a type of scarring within the kidneys.

The kidney damage in the bodybuilders has similarities to that seen in morbidly obese patients, but appears to be even more severe. High doses of oral AAS compounds can cause liver damage.

A review in CNS Drugs determined that "significant psychiatric symptoms including aggression and violence, mania , and less frequently psychosis and suicide have been associated with steroid abuse.

Long-term steroid abusers may develop symptoms of dependence and withdrawal on discontinuation of AAS". Recreational AAS use appears to be associated with a range of potentially prolonged psychiatric effects, including dependence syndromes, mood disorders , and progression to other forms of substance abuse, but the prevalence and severity of these various effects remains poorly understood.

Large-scale long-term studies of psychiatric effects on AAS users are not currently available. DSM-IV lists General diagnostic criteria for a personality disorder guideline that "The pattern must not be better accounted for as a manifestation of another mental disorder, or to the direct physiological effects of a substance e. As a result, AAS users may get misdiagnosed by a psychiatrist not told about their habit. Affective disorders have long been recognised as a complication of AAS use. From the mids onward, the media reported "roid rage" as a side effect of AAS.

A review determined that some, but not all, randomized controlled studies have found that AAS use correlates with hypomania and increased aggressiveness, but pointed out that attempts to determine whether AAS use triggers violent behavior have failed, primarily because of high rates of non-participation.

Compared with individuals that did not use steroids, young adult males that used AAS reported greater involvement in violent behaviors even after controlling for the effects of key demographic variables, previous violent behavior, and polydrug use.

The drug response was highly variable. The mechanism of these variable reactions could not be explained by demographic, psychological, laboratory, or physiological measures. A study of two pairs of identical twins, in which one twin used AAS and the other did not, found that in both cases the steroid-using twin exhibited high levels of aggressiveness, hostility, anxiety, and paranoid ideation not found in the "control" twin.

The relationship between AAS use and depression is inconclusive. There have been anecdotal reports of depression and suicide in teenage steroid users, [] but little systematic evidence. A review found that AAS may both relieve and cause depression, and that cessation or diminished use of AAS may also result in depression, but called for additional studies due to disparate data.

Androgens such as testosterone , androstenedione and dihydrotestosterone are required for the development of organs in the male reproductive system , including the seminal vesicles , epididymis , vas deferens , penis and prostate.

The pharmacodynamics of AAS are unlike peptide hormones. However, as fat-soluble hormones, AAS are membrane-permeable and influence the nucleus of cells by direct action. The pharmacodynamic action of AAS begin when the exogenous hormone penetrates the membrane of the target cell and binds to an androgen receptor AR located in the cytoplasm of that cell.

From there, the compound hormone-receptor diffuses into the nucleus, where it either alters the expression of genes [] or activates processes that send signals to other parts of the cell. The effect of AAS on muscle mass is caused in at least two ways: It has been hypothesized that this reduction in muscle breakdown may occur through AAS inhibiting the action of other steroid hormones called glucocorticoids that promote the breakdown of muscles. As their name suggests, AAS have two different, but overlapping, types of effects: Some examples of the anabolic effects of these hormones are increased protein synthesis from amino acids , increased appetite, increased bone remodeling and growth, and stimulation of bone marrow , which increases the production of red blood cells.

Through a number of mechanisms AAS stimulate the formation of muscle cells and hence cause an increase in the size of skeletal muscles , leading to increased strength. The androgenic effects of AAS are numerous. Depending on the length of use, the side effects of the steroid can be irreversible.

Processes affected include pubertal growth, sebaceous gland oil production, and sexuality especially in fetal development. Some examples of virilizing effects are growth of the clitoris in females and the penis in male children the adult penis size does not change due to steroids [ medical citation needed ] , increased vocal cord size, increased libido , suppression of natural sex hormones , and impaired production of sperm.

Men may develop an enlargement of breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, testicular atrophy, and a reduced sperm count. Compounds with a high ratio of androgenic to an anabolic effects are the drug of choice in androgen-replacement therapy e. This disassociation is less marked in humans, where all AAS have significant androgenic effects. A commonly used protocol for determining the androgenic: The VP weight is an indicator of the androgenic effect, while the LA weight is an indicator of the anabolic effect.

Two or more batches of rats are castrated and given no treatment and respectively some AAS of interest. Animal studies also found that fat mass was reduced, but most studies in humans failed to elucidate significant fat mass decrements. The effects on lean body mass have been shown to be dose-dependent. Both muscle hypertrophy and the formation of new muscle fibers have been observed.

The hydration of lean mass remains unaffected by AAS use, although small increments of blood volume cannot be ruled out. The upper region of the body thorax, neck, shoulders, and upper arm seems to be more susceptible for AAS than other body regions because of predominance of ARs in the upper body. After drug withdrawal, the effects fade away slowly, but may persist for more than 6—12 weeks after cessation of AAS use.

Overall, the exercise where the most significant improvements were observed is the bench press. The measurement of the dissociation between anabolic and androgenic effects among AAS is based largely on a simple although arguably unsophisticated and outdated model involving rat tissue bioassays.

The intracellular metabolism theory explains how and why remarkable dissociation between anabolic and androgenic effects can occur despite the fact that these effects are mediated through the same signaling receptor, and of course why dissociation is invariably incomplete.

An animal study found that two different kinds of androgen response elements could differentially respond to testosterone and DHT upon activation of the AR. Changes in endogenous testosterone levels may also contribute to differences in myotrophic—androgenic ratio between testosterone and synthetic AAS. Testosterone can be metabolized by aromatase into estradiol , and many other AAS can be metabolized into their corresponding estrogenic metabolites as well.

The major effect of estrogenicity is gynecomastia woman-like breasts. AAS are androstane or estrane steroids. As well as others such as 1-dehydrogenation e. The most commonly employed human physiological specimen for detecting AAS usage is urine, although both blood and hair have been investigated for this purpose.

The AAS, whether of endogenous or exogenous origin, are subject to extensive hepatic biotransformation by a variety of enzymatic pathways. The primary urinary metabolites may be detectable for up to 30 days after the last use, depending on the specific agent, dose and route of administration.

A number of the drugs have common metabolic pathways, and their excretion profiles may overlap those of the endogenous steroids, making interpretation of testing results a very significant challenge to the analytical chemist. Methods for detection of the substances or their excretion products in urine specimens usually involve gas chromatography—mass spectrometry or liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry.

The use of gonadal steroids pre-dates their identification and isolation. Medical use of testicle extract began in the late 19th century while its effects on strength were still being studied. In the s, it was already known that the testes contain a more powerful androgen than androstenone , and three groups of scientists, funded by competing pharmaceutical companies in the Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland, raced to isolate it.

The chemical synthesis of testosterone was achieved in August that year, when Butenandt and G. Wettstein, announced a patent application in a paper "On the Artificial Preparation of the Testicular Hormone Testosterone Androstenoneol. Clinical trials on humans, involving either oral doses of methyltestosterone or injections of testosterone propionate , began as early as Kennedy was administered steroids both before and during his presidency.

The development of muscle-building properties of testosterone was pursued in the s, in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Bloc countries such as East Germany, where steroid programs were used to enhance the performance of Olympic and other amateur weight lifters.

In response to the success of Russian weightlifters, the U. The new steroid was approved for use in the U. It was most commonly administered to burn victims and the elderly. The drug's off-label users were mostly bodybuilders and weight lifters.

Although Ziegler prescribed only small doses to athletes, he soon discovered that those having abused Dianabol suffered from enlarged prostates and atrophied testes. Three major ideas governed modifications of testosterone into a multitude of AAS: Androgens were discovered in the s and were characterized as having effects described as androgenic i. Although anabolic steroid was originally intended to specifically describe testosterone-derived steroids with a marked dissociation of anabolic and androgenic effect, it is applied today indiscriminately to all steroids with AR agonism-based anabolic effects regardless of their androgenic potency, including even non-synthetic steroids like testosterone itself.

The legal status of AAS varies from country to country: Unlawful distribution or possession with intent to distribute AAS as a first offense is punished by up to ten years in prison. Those guilty of buying or selling AAS in Canada can be imprisoned for up to 18 months. In Canada, researchers have concluded that steroid use among student athletes is extremely widespread. A study conducted in by the Canadian Centre for Drug-Free Sport found that nearly 83, Canadians between the ages of 11 and 18 use steroids.

AAS are readily available without a prescription in some countries such as Mexico and Thailand. The history of the U. The same act also introduced more stringent controls with higher criminal penalties for offenses involving the illegal distribution of AAS and human growth hormone. By the early s, after AAS were scheduled in the U. In the Controlled Substances Act, AAS are defined to be any drug or hormonal substance chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone other than estrogens , progestins , and corticosteroids that promote muscle growth.

The act was amended by the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of , which added prohormones to the list of controlled substances , with effect from January 20, In the United Kingdom, AAS are classified as class C drugs for their illegal abuse potential, which puts them in the same class as benzodiazepines.
