We all know that anabolic steroids are known for their very negative side effects. They are also associated with both short and long-term damage to the body. Is Crazy Bulk going to cause similar problems, or is it true that their products produce ‘no negative side effects’ as advertised by the company?
Understanding legal steroids can be tricky. In all actuality, while there are ingredients in some Crazy Bulk supplements that are used in the production of some different types of steroids (wild yam is an example), it is also true that these ingredients would need to be refined in a laboratory before they could be considered ‘real steroids’.
Therefore, CrazyBulk is actually a muscle-building steroid alternative—not a real steroid.
But are there any real side effects to look for, or is this product truly safe to consume without fear of adverse reactions or side effects?
Crazy Bulk Side Effects Risk By Ingredients
CrazyBulk says on their official website that their products produce no negative side effects. We have also personally never heard of anyone having trouble with them either.
But if there were any possible side effect risks, what would they be?
To determine this, we decided to research the individual ingredients to find out if they can pose any risks on their own. Granted, in a supplement like this they might not really be present in quantities large enough to be dangerous, but at least this will give people an idea of what the potential is—even if the risk itself is very, very minimal.
Anvarol Wild Yam
One of the most prevalent and key ingredients to some CrazyBulk products is wild yam. This can be found in their Anavar supplement. Wild Yam is said to be ‘Possibly Safe for most adults’ by Webmd.com, though in large amounts it can cause vomiting.
It is also said that wild yam can act like estrogen, so it might not be a good idea to consume it if you have a condition that could be made worse by a higher estrogen level. There is also a small risk that individuals with a protein S deficiency could have an increased risk of forming clots when they consume products that can act like estrogen.
This is one of the main ingredients in the Testosterone Max supplement offered by CrazyBulk. It’s usually taken to enhance athletic performance, to improve heart health, and to promote better sexual health through improved circulation.
According to Webmd.com, the ingredient by itself is probably safe to take for a short amount of time, though it should not be taken by women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. It can create sleeping problems and irregular periods in some people, and has been shown in lab-tests to be linked to problems with fetal development in pregnant animals.
There are also possible links between this ingredient and prostate problems. This product might also cause low blood sugar if you are currently taking a diabetes medication.
This is a key ingredient used in CrazyBulk Clen-B supplement. Interestingly, it has been used for many generations as a natural remedy for erectile dysfunction in men. It has also been used as an aphrodisiac for both men and women, to treat fevers, and as a stimulant. Weight lifters have also used it to prepare for competitions.
This is perhaps the most controversial ingredient that we have thus-far encountered among CrazyBulk’s products, though it is also important to mention that the following side effects are only associated with the use of Yohimbe. This doesn’t mean that there is definitive evidence linking each one of them to it.
Some side effect possibilities for this ingredient include:
- Elevated blood pressure and heart rate
- Skin flushing
- Painful urination
- Genital pain
- Chest pain
- An upset stomach
- Possible priapism
It is important to research all of these ingredients for yourself before choosing to take any supplement. We have tried to give you a little bit of possible side-effects information, though there is always more to learn and we have by no means listed everything.
It is also important to remember that CrazyBulk is a supplement with many ingredients. This means that you are not getting a ton of any individual ingredient when you take it, which probably lowers the side effect risk considerably.
There have, as of yet, been no reports of side effects—so that is also something to keep in mind as you do your research and find out whether or not CrazyBulk might be right for you.
