Nolvadex 20 by Biologic Pharmaceuticals is an oral preparation containing 20mg of the substance Tamoxifen.
This product is most often referred to as “Nolvadex” by bodybuilders.
Nolvadex is not a steroid, rather a selective estrogen blocker. While
Nolvadex doesn’t prevent the buildup of estrogen in the body, it does
prevent it from acting on certain receptors, most notably, those located
in the nipples. This has obvious benefits to bodybuilders, because this
is the area in which “gyno” occurs during the use of aromatizing
steroids such as testosterone.
Nolvadex also offers another great benefit to bodybuilders due to the
fact that it can greatly increase the amount of testosterone that the
body makes by stimulating LH production. This makes the drug a great
choice for PCT.
While the drug has obvious benefits concerning estrogen buildup in
the body, it is important to note that it can have adverse effects
towards progesterone related steroids. Because of this, it’s recommended
that bodybuilders don’t use Nolvadex in conjunction with steroids such
as Deca or Trenbolone.
It’s also important to note that Nolvadex doesn’t reduce estrogen
throughout the body, and that those athletes looking to minimize overall
water retention and bloat should look towards true estrogen blockers
such as Anastrozole or Exemestane. Bodybuilders often use Nolvadex in
doses of 25-75mgs a day throughout cycle duration where gyno is a
concern. Those looking to incorporate Nolvadex into their PCT program
will typically run the substance at similar doses for 4-6 upon the
discontinued use of all steroids. Users may also choose to add proviron
and/or HCG to their PCT protocol.
