WATER and SALT RETENTION

photolibrary_photo_of_salt_sprinkled_into_waterMany anabolic steroids can increase the amount of water and sodium stored in body tissues. In some instances steroid induced water retention can bring about a very bloated appearance to the body in which will also reduce the visibility of muscle features. Although water retention may not be the most unwelcome side effect during a bulking cycle, it can lead to dangerous problems such as high blood pressure and kidney damage. The body is clearly under more strain when dealing with unusually high level of water, so athletes should not simply ignore this.
