I have seen a lot of people mention Crazy Bulk products on various bodybuilding forums and the company does seem to be picking up speed more than ever with their products. So, I have decided to find out a bit about the company and figure out if it is really legit or just another “snake oil” product seller.
What are Crazy Bulk products actually?
Crazy Bulk is a modern company that started its business back in 2004. The main claim that they are making is that their products are completely safe, legal and effective alternatives to anabolic steroids. And, I have to say, it kind of sounds like it is too good to be true. Products as powerful as steroids, but safe, and legal?
Sounds like a stretch.
Now, as someone who understands how important supplements are in bodybuilding, I was honestly intrigued to see if there is an actual chance for these products to live up to the hype. So, I had started digging around the internet to see what the testimonials are, how the products work, etc.
Essentially, the products sold by Crazy Bulk are all FDA approved natural products, in fact, I have noticed that a lot of natties are using their products to bulk up. I found it extremely surprising as they are marketed as “steroids” after all. So, after spending a bit of time on their website to find out what they are actually using to make their products, I was pleasantly surprised. They use plants like the clary sage or the Indian bdellium tree to extract ingredients in a natural way, and they are very open about their ingredients, as the ingredient list is available for each and every one of their products.
Crazy Bulk mostly promises that their legal steroids are a very safe way to naturally supplement your diet for incredible effects. Essentially, they have been trying to find ways to mimic the results yielded by regular steroids through natural means that avoid harmful side effects. As of right now, I have counted 14 different products that they are selling with various promises. Some of them are:
Ever heard of the steroid called Dianabol (Methandrostenolone)? I guess you probably have if you are into bodybuilding at all. It is one of the “fathers” of steroids as it was around for decades. Well, the claim is that D-Bal will mimic the most important effects of Dianabol and help you keep the nitrogen in your muscles, which essentially leads to having bigger muscles by boosting protein synthesis. On average, the users are rating it rather highly with only a few of them giving it a less than perfect score.
- Metabolism Booster
- Gains in Muscle Mass
- Increase in Strenght
- Fast Recovery
This one is a legal alternative of Anavar, it is supposed to be used during your cutting cycle and the claim is that it will help you create more ATP and thus feel more energetic while you are cutting down. One of the reasons people usually recommend this product is that Anavar is known for its “interesting” side effects.
- Muscle Growth
- Cutting & Muscle Definition
- Athletic Enhancement
Another bulking supplement. The claim is that it will mimic the effects of Trenbolone to help you get some big gains.It is mostly used by people who want to increase their muscle growth and appetite. Trenbolone has many positive effects and can be considered an anabolic steroid, that can greatly enhance the performance of athletes.
- Substantial Growth in Muscle Tissue
- Strength Enhancer
- Fat Burner
Well, this one is fairly obvious, it is a substitute for Clenbuterol and it is getting a lot of praise. While it does have a thermogenic effect which is supposed to raise your resting metabolic rate, we are not quite sure how it is supposed to help you lose a lot of weight quickly. But, reviews from people who are going through serious cardio workouts are overwhelmingly positive, saying that Clenbutrol made them feel great even after workouts that should have tired them out.
- Fat Burner
- Increase Strenght
- Gain Pure Muscle Mass
While using testosterone as such is illegal, using natural and safe ways to boost your testosterone is not, so, provided that the claim they are making about this product is true, it is a really good way to increase your strength and power, leading to much more effective workouts. They are using the extract from a plant called Tribulus Terrestris (I usually avoid using Latin names for plants, but this one has too many common names, like bindi, bullhead, caltrop, cat’s-head and more). Going through the reviews, I have seen that Testo-Max is milder than some of the other products out there, but there have been no mentions of side effects and the price is making the product definitely worth trying out.
- Reduce Recovery Time
- Significant Increase in Strenght
- Performance Enhancer
Essentially, this is a product made to help your body produce the human growth hormone. And it is well known that HGH will help you get lean mass relatively quickly. Human Growth Hormone has in recent years been deemed the fountain of youth, and as we look at the effects of HGH it’s not too hard to see why. Will it prevent aging? Absolutely not, but it can undoubtedly make the aging process far more manageable.
- Increased Bone Strength
- Increased Lean Tissue Growth
- Enhanced Ability to Maintain Proper Body Fat Levels
This product is marketed as a substitute for a well known anabolic Nandrolone, popularly known as Deca. Decaduro is an effective and powerful anabolic steroid for numerous reasons with several direct functional benefits. The primary functions of this product include but are not limited to the following:
- Increase Nitrogen Retention
- Enhance Bone Mineral Content
- Enhance Protein Synthesis
How effective are these supplements overall?
Well, it seems like they are more than decent, scouting through the Internet to find reviews from hundreds of users has pretty much convinced me that their products work. Even the harshest of the serious reviews that I found did not really claim that the products are useless. And social media feeds are pretty stacked with people posting their before and after photos.
Now, you should know that using supplements while working out is helpful, but not magical. Not everyone will see the same results, and, keeping that in mind, they are willing to offer you a refund for any unopened product that you return. And, at least to me, it feels rather fair, after all, if you do not go through at least 10 days of the cycle, you cannot really claim the product didn’t work for you. So, if you find the results not to be satisfactory, simply return the items that you didn’t open within the 14 days after placing your order.
Most popular products
While D-Bal, Decaduro, Clenbutrol, and Anvarol are all amongst their top sellers, most serious bodybuilders usually turn their focus to stacks. After all, once you are already very well built using a single supplement might not yield the results that you want to see, so steroid stacking has been a thing for decades now.
And with Crazy Bulk’s safe products stacking is probably more popular than ever. Now, you will see multiple options when it comes to stacks, however, the most popular ones are bulking and cutting stacks, after all, they offer very clear goals and come at very reasonable prices.
When I first started my “investigation” I was rather skeptical. After all, I do not believe in alternative medicine, so having “alternative” steroids simply did not sound viable to me. Especially when I have read that they are free of side effects. However, everything seems to check out. They do sell a lot of products each month and if their products really had side effects, someone would have posted it online by now. And in this day and age, where you have to worry about possible side effects of a pack of chewing gum, having a perfectly safe steroid substitute is a real rarity.
