What is Nolvadex?
Tamoxifen citrate is the chemical substance of the selective estrogenic receptor modulator (SERM) Nolvadex. This drug was developed in the early 60’s to help with the treatment of breast cancer in women and men and it showed an amazing result in this matter, and it is also used to prevent breast cancer.
Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate) was first developed in 1961 by Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI), now AstraZeneca, under the trade name Nolvadex. This SERM was developed for the treatment of breast cancer, in particular hormone-sensitive cancer. However, it has also proven effective as a preventative agent against cancer. So, now about the consumers of steroids, a long time ago, their use of Nolvadex was investigated. Nolva, as everyone knows, can be used as an antiestrogen during a course of anabolic steroids in order to prevent side effects associated with estrogen. It is also used as part of a post-course therapy (PCT) recovery plan, which is the most common and beneficial point in its application.
Nolvadex is used also buy bodybuilders, actually it is one of the most popular SERM to be used by anabolic steroid users. The benefits of Temoxifen are uncountable, this drug binds to estrogen receptors instead of estrogen, therefore preventing it from acting on particular parts of the body. For steroid users, it helps with protecting them from gynecomastia (unnatural growth of breast in men) that might be caused by aromatizing anabolic steroid such as DECA, Dianabol and Boldenone. Another great benefit is that it also act as estrogen agonist, this drug to activate estrogen receptors in certain places on the body and grant great effects, it has the ability to mimic estrogen actions on the liver leading to a better and healthier lipid profile especially cholesterol.
All of these great benefits that Nolvadex carries makes it one of the most effective drugs to be used in post cycle therapy. Nevertheless, it has a positive effect on testosterone level. It can enhance natural testosterone production by blocking negative feedback that is brought back by estrogen to the hypothalamus, thus stimulating the pituitary to produce more luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle stimulating hormone (FSH). Both of these hormone stimulate testes to produce more natural testosterone.
Nolvadex Bodybuilding: Properties and Features
Novadex is an SERM with the properties of both an agonist and an estrogen antagonist. As an antiestrogen, Nolvadex functions by binding to estrogen receptors at the site of estrogen. This binding prevents the hormone estrogen from performing its actions in certain parts of the body, which is why it is extremely useful for patients with breast cancer. Many forms of breast cancer actually “feed” on estrogen when it attaches to breast receptors. Preventing this attachment of receptors also protects consumers of anabolic steroids from gynecomastia, which can be caused by anabolic steroids aromatizing to a certain extent, such as Testosterone, Dianabol, Nandrolone and Boldenone.
Although the drug is primarily regarded as an antiestrogen, Nolvadex has the ability to act as estrogen, especially in the liver. Which gives an advantage, since such estrogenic activity in the liver is associated with healthier cholesterol levels. This can be very beneficial for steroid users, as many anabolic steroids have a negative effect on cholesterol. We will dwell on this in more detail in the “Nolvadex Action” section.
Being primarily an antiestrogen, Nolvadex also has strong testosterone stimulant properties. Nolvadex has the ability to block the negative reverse effect of estrogen on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. As a result, the release of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) is increased. Both hormones are important for the production of natural testosterone. Without LH and FSH, especially without LH, the production of natural testosterone is impossible.
What Does Nolvadex Do?
For consumers of anabolic steroids, the main action of Nolvadex during the course is the prevention of gynecomastia. Nolvadex does not prevent other primary estrogenic side effects, such as water retention, but it can control them in its own way. As for protection against gynecomastia, Nolvadex will be quite enough for this purpose. If not, then you may need an IA such as Arimidex (Anastrozole) or Femara (Letrozole). However, IA can have a negative effect on cholesterol. IAs alone do not have a strong negative effect on cholesterol, but in combination with aromatizing steroids, this effect is enhanced. Cholesterol can be controlled with the help of IA, but if he copes with the task, then the number one choice should be SERM Nolvadex. As an added bonus, remember that this SERM will have a beneficial effect on cholesterol.
Nolvadex Dosage and Usage
The usage of Nolvadex depends if you are taking it while using anabolic steroid or in PCT. To control the side effects of estrogen while using steroid, a dose from 10-20mg per day is the most common. If this dose is not protecting from gynecomastia you need to add an aromatize inhibitor. If this drug is used in PCT, a dose of 40mg per day should be held for 2 weeks, then reduce it to 20mg per day for another 2 weeks, after that finish it with 10mg for 1-2 weeks.
