We personally test every product featured in our reviews and guides. By ordering products anonymously and getting a group of independent testers, we are able to get first-hand experience and provide data-driven recommendations. Learn more.

There are a lot of people following my work from abroad, and some of my readers from Australia contacted me to advise them on the best legal steroid that’s currently available for purchase there.

So I began researching the most sought-after natural alternatives to anabolic steroids in Australia, and since most of them are available here in the US as well, I pulled some data I had from my previous testing and did some additional research on top of that.

I have also consulted with our dietitian to verify if these supplements are safe and actually effective, and if there is reliable science and user feedback to back it up.

  • Vitamin B3 - 63 mg
  • Garcinia Cambogia - 450 mg
  • Bitter Orange Extract - 450 mg
  • Guarana Extract - 342 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • A short list of all-natural ingredients with no known side effects
  • By thermogenesis, it seems to be very effective in burning fat
  • It increases natural energy levels
  • Easy to implement in your pre-workout routine

Cons

  • Only available to purchase online, direct from the manufacturer’s website

Crazy Bulk jumped in the legal steroids ring with Clenbutrol to mimic the effects of the banned substance Clenbuterol.

Clenbuterol is known to open up the airways and increase stamina because of better airflow in the body and is often used with other performance-enhancing drugs or anabolic steroids [1]. The same receptors at work improving airflow also aid fat burning and increase lean muscle mass.

Crazy Bulk offers a legal and natural alternative, Clenbutrol, with ingredients like vitamin B3 (niacin) which may improve blood flow, giving you increased energy and oxygen to enhance exercise performance [2].

Guarana extract is a stimulant that may improve athletic performance by increasing energy and giving you a mental boost [3]. There’s also Garcinia Cambogia and bitter orange extract, as they both have a reputation for aiding weight loss [4].

“Garcinia cambogia supplements are made from extracts of the fruit’s peel. The peel of the fruit contains high amounts of hydroxycitric acid (HCA), an active substance that has been shown to have some weight loss properties”

- Adda Bjarnadottir, MS, RDN (Ice)

My clients and I found that the recommended dose of 3 capsules 45 minutes before our workout seemed to deliver on its promise of improved energy and stamina.

  • Vitamin D3 - 7.5 mcg
  • Magnesium - 60 mg
  • Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) - 800 mg
  • Suma Root Extract - 200 mg
  • Ashwagandha - 200 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • The unique addition of MSM may reduce muscle swelling post-exercise
  • Significant savings on the manufacturer's website for multi-month purchase
  • Ships worldwide

Cons

  • A longer list of ingredients could increase the risk of side effects

D-Bal is Crazy Bulk’s legal alternative to Dianabol, an anabolic steroid whose risks far outweigh any benefit when natural options like D-Bal are available.

D-Bal contains vitamin D3, essential for muscle growth [5]. Ashwagandha has also been shown to increase testosterone production, muscle mass, and strength [6].

What appealed to many of my clients was the addition of Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) to the formula. Research is ongoing, but so far, it shows MSM works as an anti-inflammatory and may reduce muscle swelling after exercise [7].

Magnesium also plays a huge role in your body for exercise, including muscle protein synthesis, energy production, and muscle recovery [8].

  • D-aspartic Acid - 2,000 mg
  • Panax Ginseng -8,000 mg
  • Ashwagandha - 668 mg
  • Fenugreek - 800 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • No cycling required
  • An easy routine of once a day before breakfast
  • Panax ginseng may increase energy and help combat fatigue

Cons

  • Some may find taking four capsules in one go a bit offputting

I ordered TestoPrime directly from the website, and there was a massive saving for ordering multiple bottles; buy three months, get three free. Six months for $180.00 is quite a deal.

TestoPrime claims to burn fat, improve muscle building, and increase mental and physical energy. All this with minimal side effects and certainly far less risk than anabolic steroids.

During my trial period using TestoPrime, I saw a noticeable difference in energy levels and mood and found this aligned with an overwhelming number of user reviews.

TestoPrime seems to have a solid lineup of natural ingredients like D-aspartic acid, Fenugreek, and vitamins B5 and B6 that have a good reputation for supporting fat loss, boosting testosterone levels, and giving you more energy.

“All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which is burned to produce energy,”

- Sari Greaves, RD

The addition of black pepper extract to aid in absorption ensures you get the most bang for your buck out of the ingredients [9].

  • Boron - 8 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Positive user feedback about increased testosterone levels
  • Addition of patented Bioprene® to aid absorption
  • Contains science backed testosterone boosting ingredients like boron

Cons

  • Gelatin capsule not suitable for vegans/vegetarians

Another in the lineup of legal steroid alternatives is Testo-Max. Crazy Bulk offers it up to be a natural replacement for the anabolic steroid Sustanon.

Several of Testo-Max’s ingredients, like boron and Nettle leaf extract, aim to boost testosterone levels [10] [11].

After having their blood testosterone checked a few weeks in, some of my clients saw an incremental increase in T-levels, as well as increased sex drive, muscle strength, and a noticeable energy boost.

Crazy Bulk states the recommended use to be a four capsule intake 20 minutes before breakfast on both workout and non-workout days. The combination of ingredients with the morning timing gives you a good amount of vitamins and minerals to start the day.

As with other legal steroid supplements ordered direct from the Crazy Bulk website, shipping is fast and free. There are also stacking options and discounts for multi-bottle purchases.

  • Bioprene® (Piperine) - 3.9 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Manufactured in the USA
  • The veggie capsule will appeal to vegans/vegetarians
  • Significant savings when purchasing directly from their website

Cons

  • Money-back guarantee does not apply to single bottle purchases

Ostarine is in a selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) class and is popular for muscle building. Though not in the group of anabolic steroids, it is still a banned substance for being a performance-enhancing drug.

Ostabulk is Brutal Force’s legal alternative to achieve the muscle gains and body fat loss that Ostarine provides. It has a solid list of ingredients, but I received mixed feedback from my clients on its effectiveness.

Ostabulk contains d-aspartic acid, which has been studied for its link to boosting testosterone and contributing to muscle growth and strength [12].

Add vitamins B6, D3, and K1, and you should have a completely natural recipe that may support muscle building and loss of body fat.

None of these ingredients will do you any good if you don’t absorb them well, so Bioprene® is a good addition for that.

  • Acetyl-L-Carnitine - 555 mg
  • Choline - 300 mg
  • Wild Yam Root - 300 mg
  • Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) - 150 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • It offers a unique blend of ingredients
  • Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) may reduce stress and improve focus
  • Part of Crazy Bulk’s “add 2 get one free” deal

Cons

  • It contains lactose which can negatively affect some users

Bodybuilders have used Winstrol anabolic steroid for decades because it is highly effective for muscle mass gains.

Crazy Bulk has a few legal steroids in this review, and Winsol is the alternative to Stanozolol (Winstrol).

Winsol’s unique formula contains some ingredients I haven’t seen in the other legal steroids on this list.

Let’s start with acetyl-l-carnitine, which comes from l-carnitine, an amino acid involved in many body functions.

Acetyl-l-carnitine aids the body in turning fat into energy [13].

I noticed I was laser-focused during my workouts while testing out Winsol, which might be due to Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) in the formula [14].

Rounding out the list of natural ingredients is safflower oil which has cardiovascular benefits, and wild yam root, which might have testosterone boosting effects [15].

  • ABOL Hardcore Anabolic Activator - 150.2 mg

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Dosing is a single capsule at a time instead of the usual 3-4
  • One of the less expensive legal steroids
  • Available in Amazon’s “Subscribe and Save” program

Cons

  • Contains titanium dioxide

At the end of our list of legal steroids is Anabol.

Nutrex Research claims their ABOL formula has adaptogenic properties that signal your body to increase muscle protein synthesis, giving you faster muscle growth, recovery, and strength.

The ingredients in the ABOL formula are natural sterol compounds found in plants that show anabolic activity without the androgenic properties, meaning they don’t elevate or decrease male hormone (testosterone) levels [16].

The lack of androgenic effects was a big plus for my female clients.

You should note that titanium dioxide appears on the ingredient list; while its toxicity is not confirmed, I would have reservations about long-term use [17].

Quick facts:

To provide our readers with the most accurate and reliable information on legal steroid supplements, we've streamlined our testing process to focus on three critical factors: Price, Convenience, and Effectiveness. Here's how we evaluated each product based on these criteria.

Price

Value for money is essential. We compared the cost of each product with its competitors in the market. While we understand that quality often comes at a price, we aimed to recommend products that offer the best balance between cost and quality. We also considered any discounts, bundle deals, or loyalty programs offered by manufacturers.

Convenience

The ease of use and accessibility of a product play a significant role in its overall appeal.

We evaluated:

  • Dosage: Clear instructions and manageable dosage schedules were preferred.
  • Availability: Products that are easily available online or in local stores scored higher.
  • Packaging: User-friendly packaging that's easy to open, store, and carry was a plus.
  • Delivery: Fast and reliable shipping options, especially with discreet packaging, were considered.

Effectiveness

The primary purpose of any supplement is to deliver results. We delved into:

  • Clinical Trials and Research: We referred to scientific literature and studies related to each product to understand its efficacy.
  • User Feedback: Real-world experiences are invaluable. We gathered feedback from users focusing on the results they achieved, the time taken to see those results, and any side effects experienced.
  • Ingredient Analysis: Products with natural, scientifically-backed ingredients that have a proven track record of effectiveness were favored.

Buyer’s Guide

Miniature shopping cart

Doctors were not supposed to prescribe anabolic steroids for anything other than extreme health conditions, which could only be addressed with these muscle-building supplements.

When the dangers of anabolic steroids came to the surface, there was no shortage of manufacturers claiming that their natural supplements are one of the best legal steroids on the market with the promise of significant gains.

It can be overwhelming to decipher all the claims, ingredient lists, costs, and dosing for these natural steroid alternatives, so I have created this quick read to help you choose the perfect legal steroids for your goals. It ensures you only get the necessary nutrients to avoid its unwanted side effects.

What Are Your Goals?

People use anabolic steroids to achieve significant muscle growth, increased stamina, and significantly reduced recovery time, but the risks of taking illegal anabolic steroids vastly outweigh the benefits.

You need to evaluate what you are working toward to pick the best natural supplement that gives you the best chance to reach your goals.

These legal steroids are designed to either support your natural testosterone production or downregulate estrogen in the blood which can indirectly increase testosterone. Some of them are geared towards building muscle mass or losing fat, and some towards muscle growth without androgenic effects.

And lastly, some legal steroids are focused on improving physical performance, strength, and stamina.

You should read the labels and the purported benefits of their ingredients and make sure that aligns with your personal goals because there isn’t, and there shouldn’t be a “one size fits all” type of solution.

Stacking

Muscular man flexing muscles

A widespread practice is to stack legal steroids to get the best combination for muscle gains, fat burning, and increased stamina.

Many manufacturers’ websites offer stacking combinations, like the Crazy Bulk Bulking Stack, which contains D-Bal, DecaDuro, Trenorol, and Testo-Max.

When stacking, you will often see a dosing schedule of different days and times, pre-workout or post, etc.

It will be dependent on the intended goal of each of the supplements.

Many of my clients have had great success gaining lean muscles much quicker with stacking without the risk that comes with anabolic steroids.

Read the Label Carefully

The importance of label reading when you are looking to buy legal steroids cannot be stressed enough.

Carefully read the supplement facts and “other ingredients” section for additives that enhance taste and color. For example, as noted above, titanium dioxide is a controversial whitening agent used to improve the look of the supplement.

You should be on the lookout for these:

  • Fillers
  • Binders
  • Ant-caking agents
  • Preservatives
  • Artificial colors and flavors
  • Emulsifiers
  • Artificial flavors

These include stearic acid, magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, carrageenan, and potassium sorbate. Some of these may cause issues like gastrointestinal upset, nausea, and inflammation.

These may be considered minor in terms of side effects, but they certainly may make a workout unpleasant or difficult, which may render these legal steroid alternatives far less effective.

Though artificial flavors and sweeteners are less likely with encapsulated legal steroids, there are other additives to consider like anti-caking agents, binders, fillers, etc.

My mantra with supplements is less is more. Read the label, do your research, and give your body the best chance to achieve your desired results.

“If you have to pick between a natural sweetener and a fake one, pick the natural one. Even regular table sugar is better than HFCS and the chemical cocktails.”

- Lauren Deville, NMD

Capsule Base

Capsule spilled

An important consideration with encapsulated legal steroids is whether they are gelatin or veggie-based.

Gelatin capsules are not suitable for someone with a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle as gelatin is an animal by-product.

Make sure to read the product label to determine the capsule type.

Evaluate the Cost

Gym chatter often revolves around the effectiveness of legal steroids and the cost.

The first step is to evaluate your goals, what natural ingredients you will need to meet those goals, and which legal steroid contains the right amount of those ingredients.

Next, estimate a reasonable timeframe it will take you to hit those goals, and then you can calculate a per day or per serving cost and compare products accordingly.

Opt for Science-backed Ingredients

The most important thing to consider is the effectiveness of the ingredients listed on the product label. Depending on your goal, you should choose the products that contain the ingredients you need, the best form of those ingredients, and you should definitely consider the dosage per capsule.

If your goal is increasing testosterone levels or increasing muscle mass, then I would highly recommend choosing supplements that contain healthy doses of these scientifically-backed natural ingredients: 

All of these have been studied and linked to the most important benefits that many of these natural supplements claim to provide.

No, anabolic steroids are not legal in Australia without a valid prescription. The country has strict regulations to prevent the misuse of these substances, especially given their potential health risks. Those found in possession without a legitimate medical reason can face heavy fines and even imprisonment.

Beyond health concerns, there’s a significant ethical debate surrounding the use of steroids in sports. Using performance-enhancing drugs challenges the very essence of sportsmanship and fair competition.

Athletes who use steroids gain an unfair advantage, undermining the spirit of competition. Many international sports bodies, including the World Anti-Doping Agency, have stringent rules against the use of such substances, emphasizing the importance of a level playing field.

Steroids and Cardiovascular Health

Anabolic steroids, while effective for muscle growth, have a dark side when it comes to cardiovascular health.

Regular use can lead to increased blood pressure, higher cholesterol levels, and even the risk of heart attacks.

The strain on the heart can be significant, especially when steroids are used in combination with intense physical training.

It's essential to monitor cardiovascular health regularly and consult with a healthcare professional if any symptoms arise.

FAQs

What Do Natural Steroids Do in the Body?

Natural steroids support the production of testosterone in your body and increase performance. They work differently compared to anabolic steroids, which are usually synthetic versions of testosterone.

When Should I Take Legal Steroids?

You should take legal steroids when the manufacturer instructed you to take them to get the most benefit out of the product.

The dosing instructions vary from product to product, with some stating to take before working out and other labels instructing to take at a set time each day, independent of a workout schedule.

Do Legal Steroids Work?

Yes, legal steroids work alongside a healthy diet and workout

routine, but unlike anabolic steroids, they generally take longer to achieve significant results, like muscle mass growth.

It bears reminding that everyone’s body responds to natural supplements differently. Finding the best legal steroid and stacking combination may take trial and error before finding the right mix to help you reach your fitness goals.

Topping the list of the best legal steroids in Australia is Crazy Bulk Clenbutrol. I personally believe this is the best supplement on the list because of the scientifically backed ingredients like Garcinia Cambogia and bitter orange extract.

They seem to really deliver on improving energy levels, fat burning, and increasing muscle mass for my clients and me, which also aligns with numerous positive online reviews.

As indicated by our tests, Clenbutrol won’t cause the drastic transformation its illegal counterpart might, but it is rather a safe and natural way that helped many of my clients reach their goals significantly faster and easier than they were able to with just diet and workout.
