    Alright This Is What It Comes Down To!

    okay, I've asked this quetrsiona million times without an answer, Will juice affect this typ of bone growth. The widening of the lower jaw to make you look more manly, and the broadening of the shoulders. I have edited a pic of frankie muniz to show you what im talking about. Does juice stunt that type of bone growth?

    That's a good question. Maybe our medical members could answer this one. Though I don't THINK it would have that kind of affect. Look at some female juicers and you'll see the opposite. Abnormal jaw growth and large bulky shoulders.

    Anabolic steroids do effect osteoblast receptors that help in the strengthening of bone. They are effective in treating osteoprosis by delaying bone loss and increasing bone density in the hip and spine. But as I understand it, the results are more of a strengthening effect as opposed to altering the shape.

    Growth Horomone however may alter the shape. From my research, GH reacts very differently than anabolic steroids . It can cause muscle hyperplasia (increased number of muscle fibers) vs simply muscular hypertrophy (increase size of muscle fibers) from AS. Which is why heavyweight pro bodybuilders will eventually resort to GH to keep gaining above and beyond AS only. After the muscle fibers get so big and reach a limit - increasing the number is a very desired effect to keep gains coming. However this effect on cell number is not just seen in muscle tissue. It also seems to effect organs and facial bone... resulting in enlarging organs and the jaw line.

    Compare bodybuilders of the 70's with them today. They still have ripped abs - but their gut sticks out. And jaw lines are much more pronounced. The difference is the amount of GH guys are using today in the attempt to be the biggest and most defined.

    To answer your question... I would say that you have little to worry about with basic AS cycles. Once GH is worked into the equation - then this is very possible.

    You CAN get what is called "moon face" by using an aromatizing androgen (like testosterone ) without any anti-e's or not enough of 'em. Water retention will develop in your face. It's a pretty easy thing to notice on someone when you know what you are looking for. But this goes away post cycle...

    When someone says "You are looking much thicker lately - especially in your face." This can be translated t, "Hello MOON FACE!"

    So if I get this straight, the onnnnnnnnly type of bone growth that would be stunted by a testosterone is the one that prevents u from getting taller?

    yes, in some cases test can stunt growth but prematurely fusing the epiphysical cartilage (growth plates) so no more growth is possible !

    I have never seen any of the sides that you are talking about. Not in me or anyone else I know that is taking AS. I have seen in people taking HGH.
