TAMOXIFEN (NOLVADEX) 20MG 60 TABLETS
BP Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) is an effective Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) that is referred to as an anti-estrogen. However, while being an antagonist it is also an agonist as it will actually act as estrogen in certain parts of the body while acting as an anti-estrogen in other areas. As one of the oldest SERM on the market that is still regularly used medicinally. Tamoxifen is also used by anabolic steroid users but it is not an anabolic steroid. This is an important note as some are often confused by its use in steroid cycles. BP Tamoxifen (Novaldex) is simply a SERM which is an essential part of the bodybuilding.
Not long after the users of anabolic steroids discovered that the compound is very important for them! It can be used as an anti-estrogen during an anabolic steroid cycle in order to prevent estrogenic related side effects. Tamoxifen is also used as part of a Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) recovery plan, which is its most common and beneficial point of use for the steroid user.
For the breast cancer patient, the effect of the drug is straightforward. By blocking the estrogen from attaching the cancer will not be unable to feed on the hormone to its survival.
The use of tamoxifen bodybuilding to prevent gynecomastia.
For the anabolic steroid user, the primary effect of Tamoxifen on steroid cycle is in the prevention of gynecomastia. The compound does not appear to have a strong effect in preventing the other primary estrogenic effect in water retention, but this can often be controlled in other ways. As for gynecomastia protection, this can be enough for many men and should be your first choice if it can get the job done. If not, you will need more powerfull AI (Aromatase Inhibitor) like Arimidex (Anastrozole). However, AI’s can have a negative effect on cholesterol. Alone AI’s do not appear to have a strong, negative effect, but when coupled with an aromatizing steroid this effect appears to be exasperated. Cholesterol can be controlled with the use of an AI, but if it can get the job done a SERM like Tamoxifen should be your first choice. As an added bonus, remember this SERM will have a positive impact on your cholesterol levels.
Another valuable feature of BP Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) for a bodybuilder is his effect to increase the natural body testosterone production. Although primarily the drug is an anti-estrogen, it also possess strong testosterone stimulating characteristics. Tamoxifen has the ability to block the negative feedback that is brought on by estrogen at the hypothalamus and pituitary. As a result, this stimulates an enhanced release by the pituitary of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Both LH and FSH are essential to natural testosterone production. Without LH and FSH, with an even stronger emphasis on LH, there is no natural testosterone production.
Due to the low testosterone issues after a cycle of anabolic steroids, most men are encouraged to implement a PCT plan that includes Tamoxifen. Many PCT plans often contain BP Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) as well as the SERM Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) and the powerful peptide hormone HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). By implementing this PCT plan, you will greatly stimulate natural testosterone production, speed up the recovery process and greatly protect your physique. Once the PCT plan comes to an end, contrary to popular belief your testosterone levels will not be resting at their normal high level state. Total recovery will still take a lot of time. However, a PCT plan that includes Tamoxifen-citrate will ensure you have enough testosterone for proper bodily function while your levels continue to naturally rise.
For the purpose of estrogenic side effect protection during anabolic steroid use, 10-20mg per day is common. For post cycle therapy standard Nolvadex doses will normally begin at 40mg per day. The dose will normally hold at 40mg per day for a couple weeks, reduce to 20mg per day for a couple weeks and then finish with an optional week or two at 10mg per day. How your cycle ends will determine when you begin your Nolvadex therapy. If HCG is included, this will also affect the timing.
