ARod's Banned Substances List

Testosterone: Banned substance applied by cream at 10% strength

L-Glutathione: Antioxidant used for cell repair

Troches: 19% testosterone-laced lozenge used prior to workout

Pink cream: Trans-dermal delivery of testosterone

HGH: Injectable growth hormone, a banned substance

CJC: Injectable growth hormone releasing hormone

GHRP: Injectable growth hormone releasing peptide

IGF-1: Banned substance; stimulates insulin and muscle growth

Zinc: Essential mineral used as dietary supplement

Amino acids: Supplement aids in recovery and building of muscle tissue

Vitamin D: Immune system booster

Omega-3, -6, -9: Essential fatty acids

5-HTP: Boosts serotonin production in brain

DHEA: Testosterone precursor

Resveratrol: Plant-based supplement marketed as anti-aging agent

Melatonin: Hormone that helps regulate sleep and wake cycles

Glucosamine: Supplement used for joint and cartilage health

Alpha lipoic acid: Antioxidant that helps turn glucose into energy

Ibuprofen: Anti-inflammatory drug to treats minor aches and pains

That is the list of identifiable substances that Tony Bosch had allegedly supplied Alex Rodriguez. Note the word "identifiable", as there were other substances that couldn't be identified due to their abbreviations or legibility issues.

While I still don't believe the Yankees will be able to totally cut ties with ARod, seeing that list and reading more about the situation, makes me think that Alex's days as a Yankee could very well be over.
