The antiestrogens are indispensable protectors to perform a treatment of steroids with confidence. A conscientious sportsman who is still a beginner, experienced or professional has a vis-à-vis responsibility on his body and his health.
Taking steroids might carry some health risks: gynecomastia, infertility, stress in the liver ... the anti-estrogens help protect yourself against these harmful side effects.
The main anti-estrogens are:
We will present antiestrogens we have enumerated with an overview of the products, we will explain the effects and contributions of each, ending with the recommended dosage for a total protection.
Inputs / Effects
Proviron is composed of mesterolone dosed with 25 mg per tablet. This is not an anabolic but a very powerful anti-estrogen.
Proviron acts as an anti-aromatic: it prevents the aromatization (transformation) of anabolic steroids into estrogen. It avoids gynecomastia and is very often combined with Nolvadex to increase its effectiveness. It should be noted that Proviron and Nolvadex are two anti-estrogens with different but complementary mechanisms of action, which is why the combination of these two products is so effective: while Proviron prevents aromatization of anabolics, Nolvadex clogs the estrogen receptor cells, thus preventing it from acting. It is therefore a formidable tandem. Proviron is also not only an excellent anti-estrogen: by maintaining a low level of estrogen, Proviron also decreases water retention. It gives the user the "look" skinned sought by so many bodybuilders, especially during preparations for competitions.
It should be noted that Proviron tends to limit muscle gains during a steroid cycle. Indeed, it attaches to androgen receptor cells instead of other steroids in the body which then remain stuck on the outside and which therefore have no effect. This is why many bodybuilders take a minimal dose of Proviron to prevent the gynecomastia development.
Dosage: 1 to 2 25 mg tablets per day (after eating) during the duration of the cycle, they are needed to avoid the effects of gynecomastia, infertility and water retention.
Inputs / Effects
Nolvadex is compound of tamoxifen citrate. This is not an anabolic steroid but an anti-estrogen. Oral administration.
Nolvadex is a powerful anti-estrogen and a favorite of bodybuilders. It avoids the feminization of phenomena that occur frequently at the end of a cycle of anabolic steroids. The observed phenomena are gynecomastia, fat retention and water in the hips or breasts. Indeed, at the end of the cycle, most anabolic steroids aromatize into the estrogen hormone, causing the appearance of these symptoms. Tamoxifen citrate has the ability to block estrogen receptors, preventing action and cause these phenomena. Many bodybuilders use Nolvadex before a competition because besides its action against gynecomastia, the fact of reducing water retention and fat helps the bodybuilder to get a slim physic.
Finally, Nolvadex has the ability to increase endogenous testosterone production, which is particularly popular among bodybuilders by the end of the cycle. Indeed, at the end of a cycle, the testosterone production is generally at a relatively low level, inhibited and replaced by the action of anabolics. Severe accident can occur after stopping a steroid cycle when the natural testosterone production is not reduced to a normal level. Novaldex can prevent this type of accidents by boosting testosterone production in the testicles.
The main disadvantage is that Nolvadex reduces gains produced by anabolics. This is why many athletes use it only when they are obliged to prevent gynecomastia.
Regarding the side effects of this, they are generally limited to some nausea and some vision problems. Finally, it should be noted that even if Novaldex blocks estrogen receptors and prevents it from acting, it does not eliminate this hormone in the body. This means that after the discontinuation of Novaldex a significant amount of estrogen hormone remained inactive will be able to suddenly attach to newly released receptors, causing feminizing effects that we had avoided so far. This is a phenomenon that can be prevented by combining Nolvadex with another anti-estrogen such as Proviron, allowing a radical efficiency.
Dosage: 20 mg per day (after eating) during the duration of the cycle, they are needed to avoid the effects of gynecomastia, infertility and water retention.
It is recommended to take 1 Proviron and 1 Nolvadex daily for the duration of the steroid cycle.
Inputs / Effects
Clomid is composed of clomiphene citrate. Clomid is administered orally. Clomiphene citrate is not an anabolic steroid but a synthetic estrogen hormone that is used in bodybuilding in order to fight against a number of hormonal imbalances caused by taking anabolic steroids.
Clomid is primarily a fertility drug that was created to stimulate ovulation in women who have difficulties to become pregnant. This molecule also has the property
to stimulate the endogenous testosterone production in men in the testicles, by increasing the secretion of LH and FSH hormones. It is this last property that interests bodybuilders because they undergo some hormonal imbalances when they use steroids, especially when these steroids are strong androgens. Many androgens, especially the stronger as Oxymetholone, Dianabol ... have the unfortunate effect of bringing down the natural production of testosterone in the body during the steroid cycle. This is easily explained if we consider that the provision of external androgens obviates the production of testosterone by the body since these androgens produce the same effect as testosterone. Therefore the body reacts by stopping the production of testosterone, since it is no longer necessary during the cycle time.
The trouble is that after the end of the cycle, the metabolism does not immediately restart this production of testosterone become dangerously low. It is therefore urgent to stimulate it if we want to avoid a serious metabolic accident caused by weight loss and catastrophic force. This is why bodybuilders use Clomid, which triggers the production of endogenous testosterone in the testicles, and thus avoids the accident.
Athletes demonstrate that a daily dose of 50 to 100 mg of Clomid helps restore normal testosterone levels in 3 weeks. However, before starting the treatment with Clomid, bodybuilders typically use HCG also to help increase the production of endogenous testosterone, but the action is much faster. HCG is used first to raise the testosterone levels of the subject immediately after the end of the cycle, then the treatment is continued more sustainable with Clomid. HCG affects the persons who follow intermediaries and confirmed treatments. Clomid alone is sufficient for beginners.
Clomiphene citrate is also an effective anti-estrogen. During the end of the cycle, there is often a risk of gynecomastia due to the the transformation of estrogen steroids, because these substances have, despite their very different effects, very similar chemical formulas. By occupying the receptor cells of estrogen in place of it, Clomid prevents estrogen present in the body to act and avoids the effects associated with it, including gynecomastia in particular.
Dosage: 50 to 100 mg per day (after eating) during 3 weeks to restore normal levels of testosterone in the body.
Inputs / Effects
The liver, a vital organ of the human body, performs many critical functions and plays a leading role on metabolism, assimilating and processing carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. The liver also acts on digestion (bilious secretions) and detoxification of unhealthy ballasts. Silymarin, vegetable agent extracted from milk thistle (Silybummarianum) enters in the composition of Legalon / Samarin,it protects the liver against all harmful influences and promotes the recovery of healthy cells. Unless stated otherwise, start the treatment with a daily dose of silymarin: 420 capsules of Legalon 6 and 70 capsules of Samarin 3. Taking Legalon / Samarin may result in isolated cases mild laxative action.
Dosage: during a harmful steroid cycle such as Dianabol, Androlic, Anavar ... in order to not have adverse effects on your liver just take the Legalon / Samarin at a rate of 140mg to 420mg daily. The plug must be spaced throughout the day (morning / midi / night always after eating).
I order to have a safe steroid cycle, it must be taken during a steroids treatment 1 Proviron and 1 Nolvadex daily. However, if you do a steroid cycle harmful to the liver, you must add Legalon 70 or Samarin 140 (140mg to 420mg per day). During the end of the cycle, do not forget to take 1 Clomid daily for 20 days.
