    It takes time for steroids to kick in because these are hormonal compounds that need to reach a certain level in the body to give the maximum benefits. But given the fact that they have half-lives, it is a rat race – some of the compound breaks down, and you keep adding more... With supplements it is different, because they usually work right away – they do not last long, but they work immediately. Whey protein will get digested in like 30-60 minutes, the same with creatine and BCAA.

    Then how do you tell that they are working and you are getting benefited by their use?

    Supplements aren't the type of thing that are going to add 50 pounds to your bench press. They are the type of thing that will help improve cholesterol levels, reduce blood pressure, improve overall well being etc.

    You could use blood work to see if a supplement is working. An easy example is a liver aid supplement.

    Get your blood work done when using liver toxic oral steroids. See where your AST and ALT liver enzymes are at. Then add in a good liver aid supplement and re-test. The liver enzymes should have good down significantly.

    Here is blood work showing lowered liver enzymes after using the liver aid supplement N2guard -> https://www.evolutionary.org/forums/...age-51722.html

    Yeah, supplements will give quite subliminal health benefits, that can be observed with blood work, or other indicators, but this is not something that gives such drastic results as AAS or SARMS might. But this does not mean that they are not important, especially when cycling AAS.

    Blood work will tell you if certain supplements are working or not.

    Protein isn't something that kicks in. If you eat a piece of chicken, does it kick in? That is not how these things work.
