Neuroactive steroids are also called as neurosteroids . They are endogenous steroids that rapidly alter neuronal excitability through interaction with ligand-gated ion channels and other cell surface receptors. Neuroactive steroid refers to steroids that are synthesized by an endocrine gland that reach the brain through the bloodstream and have effects on brain function. Neurosteroids have a wide range of potential clinical applications from sedation to treatment of epilepsy and traumatic brain injury. Ganaxolone is a synthetic analog of the endogenous neurosteroid. Allopregnanolone is under investigation for the treatment of epilepsy.
They’re hit or miss. I think it has a lot to do with the quality of the supplement. For example I cycle Longjack. Most places (read, chain stores) that sell it sell crap quality. I tried a chain store brand as my first go and it didn’t do anything and I figured “Well, that was wasted money”. Reviewed online and found that what I’d been taking really was just useless and researched things like extract ratios, purity, etc. and found a brand that came in powdered form that I put into capsules myself. Gotta, because it tastes like Satan’s shriveled left testicle. Turns out, it works. Big time. Like super big time. It’s all in the quality and knowing what form to use.
While these pills have been a big help in pumping up my pipes and taking my workouts to the next level, the biggest thing I think I’ve gotten from them is confidence. No more t-shirts when I go to the beach. There’s no way I’m covering up the results I’ve gotten from all the long hours I spend in the gym (and the ladies seem to appreciate it, too!) The stuff has majorly helped me tone up and lean out. If you’re willing to put in the training time, this stuff will really help you up your game quickly. – Jim, graphic designer in Knoxville, TN
