Importing Prohormones & Prosteroids to Australia

The effectiveness of Australian bodybuilding supplements are insignificant when compared with the supplements sold within the united states.  Namely because Australia has a complete restriction (well almost!) on importing and selling prohormones and prosteroids. United States supplement stores, however, legally sell an impressive range of prohormones and prosteroids.  This puts Australian gym goers/ recreational athletes in the pursuit of muscle, strength and recovery at a great disadvantage in comparison to our US counterparts.

So what to do.........the first thought would be to simply purchase the prohormone from a US supplement store.  However, given that Australia has one of the tightest customs in the world, the chances of getting such a product through customs and into Australia would seem unlikely, or so you would think.....US supplement stores offer two main postage methods - FEDEX, UPS (United Parcel Service) and USPS (United States Postal Service).  Only one of these postage methods is effective at getting prohormones/prosteroids through Australian Customs, and that is USPS.  USPS offers international express post and international priority - choose the international priority mail method, as express packages are more heavily scrutinised. 

So why is it that USPS allows free passage for prohormones...Well it comes down to the fact that USPS uses its own internal customs - who have far less restrictions on what passes, in contrast to say FEDEX who operate through 'Australia post's' customs service - who are very strict on what passess.  Not every prohormone/prosteroid will pass have there are a large number that do - here is a detailed list of supplements (including prohormones/prosteroids) that pass, soemtimes pass and what wont pass...On a side not for those thinking of importing diet supplements - anything containing ephedra or yohombine hcl WILL NOT PASS!
