The mechanism by which it has some effectiveness in this regard is from binding weakly to the estrogen receptor without activating it, and to the aromatase enzyme. In the first case, this partially reduces the number of receptor sites momentarily available to bind estrogen, thus reducing estrogenic activity. In the second case, some fractions of aromatase molecules at any given moment are unavailable to bind and convert testosterone, their binding sites being occupied with mesterolone.
Even if Mesterolone doesn’t provoke accentuated side effects it is not so effectively such other supplements from this category. It can bring good result in couple with Nolvalex in combination with strong steroids.
