Due to overwhelming evidence, there is no questionable doubt that Sylvester Stallone uses anabolic steroids. For those of you who don’t believe me, this includes a conviction in Australia for the possession of synthetic testosterone and the importation of human growth hormone.
Sylvester Stallone was born in 1946 and will be 70 years old in 2016! He looks great for his age but much of his youth (muscle mass) is down to his vigilant use of drugs. Its extremely difficult to maintain a good level of muscle mass over 60, let alone keeping your body fat levels below 10%. One of the biggest causes of this is due to natural testosterone gradually dropping off as you get older. Many famous athletes, musicians and ‘Hollywood’ turn to private doctors to prescribe them with steroids/HGH to combat false ‘medical’ conditions (such as AIDS or muscular dystrophy) or simply ‘anti aging’ to allow them to legally take the drugs. However, in many cases they are supervised by doctors, but the drugs they take are completely illegal. Sylvester Stallone was active from a young age and its clear from various sources that he actively built muscle. By 1970 he was in decent shape and began to appear in well known films.
His career really took off after his 1976, appearing in Rocky and at this point in time it is unclear whether he was currently taking steroids, because he had a naturally attainable physique. However as time progressed, the likeliness he was able to maintain an increasingly impressive physic decreased and tell tale signs of anabolic use such as extremely low body fat with tight/dense muscle mass increased. He would have soon realised that to maintain and build his ‘move star’ physique, he needed to stay on steroids. Certainly for later Rocky and Rambo films Sylvester would have been using religiously.
Sylvester currently uses steroids and growth hormone under the medical supervision of his Beverly Hills doctor Robert Huizenga. In 2007 he was caught by Australia customs with 46 vials of Jintropin, a Chinese human growth hormone. Sylvester was then later seen throwing vials of testosterone from his room when police came to search his hotel room. He went to court and stated during the trial that he has a prescription for Jintropin, however the drug is not legally available under prescription in the USA and found him guilty. He apologised for the misunderstanding and explained his need for the drug:
“As you get older, the pituitary gland slows and you feel older, your bones narrow. This stuff gives your body a boost and you feel and look good”
In the 60s and 70s HGH was often harvested from the dead and was extremely rare. Since synthetic HGH can be produced its become much more popular. I expect now Sylvester has aged, he has increased his growth hormone usage and lowered his testosterone usage. Although as Sylvester clearly enjoys the benefits there are negatives. For example its expensive to supplement, it can cause abdominal distillation, high blood pressure and odd bone growth in areas such as the face and feet.
Understand Anabolic steroids and Human Growth Hormone
Anabolic steroids are synthetic versions of the male sex hormone testosterone that increases muscle size, strength and supports recovery.They will also allow you to maintain much greater quantities of muscle mass as natural testosterone levels are too low you break down at a quicker rate than you build. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) on the other hand is used to signal the production of insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) predominantly in the liver. It improves connective tissue, strengthens bones and helps with the development of new muscle tissues.
