It actually doesn't mean to build JUST muscle, it's building any complex molecule etc, and is the opposite of catabolism, but sure. I was speaking from a purely marketing hype standpoint not a scientific or medical standpoint. Sorry if I came across as ignorant or otherwise. I do have an education in this type of stuff... lol.
If a substance does actually increase test etc like this product claims, then it does affect hormones to some extent. The pathway and results are what dictates if a particular "anabolic" causes shutdown or not. I was simply asking whether the labeling included the word "anabolic" because it was suppressive or for marketing hype or if it was just because it is anabolic. I think we both know that company's marketing works differently and certain products tend to use different terminology. Perhaps I was interpreting the labeling a bit, but with good reason. I was simply asking a question based on a quick look at the product and label.
Traditional "anabolics" are steroids or precursors, etc. perhaps traditional isn't the right word, and of course the category includes many other substances. Either way the definition of anabolism isn't really consequential to this discussion anyways.
