Anabolic steroids, technically known as anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), are commonly used by weightlifters to “bulk up.” Norwegian researchers studied the brains of 82 weightlifters who used AAS for more than a year and compared them with 68 weightlifters who had never used them or other doping substances. Users had less overall gray matter and evidence of accelerated brain aging.
LifeTip: Avoid the use of AASs and prevent the neurotoxicity of these substances which can decrease cognitive function. Watch “Maximize Mental Performance Naturally” by Dr. David DeRose for more brain-enhancing recommendations.
