The short answer is yes. The long answer is a bit more complicated. This complication has to do with the nature of anabolic steroids and how they work in the human body. Henry Cavill may or may not be taking strictly anabolic steroids (which stimulate muscle growth), but he does appear to be taking some anabolic supplements. It could be natural supplements or herbs, but what they cause effects are still largely unknown. On the other hand, it could simply be a product like testosterone boosters, which increase your body’s testosterone production. All the same…
There’s reason to believe Henry Cavill takes steroids:
He gained 17 pounds in just 12 weeks for his role as Charles Brandon in The Tudors.
Henry Cavill bulked up and got ripped fast, and we can see with our eyes that he went from 170lbs to 187lbs (77kg) with only 12 weeks of preparation for his role in The Tudors (2006). 12 weeks! There’s no way you can achieve a transformation like that naturally, and to do it for a role would be the worst thing you could do because you’d lose all the muscle mass as soon as your body senses that there’s no need to produce large amounts of testosterone. So what does Henry Cavill take to enhance his performance? Well, it could be pretty much anything from prohormones, SARMs, or even anabolic steroids. In this article, we’ll try and figure out if Henry Cavill takes steroids and, if so, which one he uses. If we find out, we will also mention other celebrities who use them (if any) and what effects these products have on users, and why they’re used (just in case someone wants to take them).
#1: Henry Cavill does take steroids – Yes, it’s pretty clear that he takes some supplements/steroids.
#2: Knowing what exactly Henry Cavill takes is a tricky question to answer because the list is too extensive. In this article, we’ll talk about why taking any supplement can have side effects and how to mitigate them.

Why do people take steroids?
Before we get into anything else, let’s ask ourselves a simple question: Why do people use steroids? To build muscle mass, to burn fat, or to look better? Okay, that’s not exactly correct – only the last one is true. People who want to get muscular and lean use steroids because they’re simply more effective than any other product on the market.
#1: Steroids are more effective than supplements/herbs/pills at building muscle mass and burning fat. It does not matter what you take (so long as it works) and how much of it. Taking any supplement means you can always compensate for part of its effects by eating better and working out harder, so if the product you take doesn’t work, there’s no point continuing to take it. If we assume that Henry Cavill takes a supplement (which we do), then the only question is what it does for him because he’s already a successful actor, model, and charm machine.
Henry Cavill doesn’t need steroids to get lean and muscular, so he probably takes them not because he wants bigger muscles but because they have some desirable effect on his body/health/performance – which we’ll talk about later in this article.
