Steroids SOS!
My 19 yr old son bought the following "package" : Sustaplex 325, Decaplex 300, HCG5000, Fertomid-50 and some blue heart-shape Dianaballs. IS THIS SAFE If he uses it responsibly and under supervision? He also takes Retalin

Hi there,

1. Please give those away or return it
2. He can mow the garden everyday and see the same benefits ;)
3. Steroids/supplements should be avoided at all costs...this advice is based on latest scientific resarch

Ask you son this: thousands of years ago, did early humans use supplements/steroids to look the way they were?

Hope this helps,
Habib
