Anastrozole

Anastrozole represent a popular aromatise inhibitor. It is known in medicine since about 1995 as a treatment of breast cancer.

It is an aromatase inhibitor, in other word it reduce the estrogen buildup that takes place. Anastrozole works by inhibiting the enzyme aromatase, which is responsible for converting androgens to estrogens. Anastrozole binds permanently to the aromatase enzyme through competitive inhibition.

Anastrozole is often used by bodybuilders and athletes. In male body this steroid help on natural production of testosterone and restore full function of the HPTA

It is considered to be an ancillary product.

Many bodybuilders use anastrozole as a part of their steroid cycle to reduce and prevent side effects provoked by excess of estrogen, such as: gynecomastia or water retention.

Anastrozole is available in oral form. Studies show that this drug helps to reduce level of estrogen to 50%. That is why it is loved by bodybuilders almost in Post Cycle Therapy.

Post cycle therapy

Post cycle therapy is a method of employing drugs which work via various mechanisms to go about trying to aid stabilising and restoring a users hormones back to normal once a suppressive anabolic androgenic steroid cycle has been ceased.

Once a user has ceased use of anabolic androgenic steroids they are left in a situation where their natural testosterone production has been suppressed , sometimes severely by androgens and aromatising drugs. Add this onto the fact the levels of steroids are forever diminishing in their system, this can leave the user in a very catabolic state post cycle, which may reflect in their ability to maintain muscle mass gained whilst on cycle. It is therefore easy to conclude that we would like to find a way to restore ones natural testosterone production to bring about a better environment for overall health and to maintain muscle tissue.
Clomid and tamoxifen

Clomiphene citrate ( clomid) and tamoxifen(nolvadex) can be employed post cycle to aid restoring the users natural testosterone production.  Many find just using nolvadex on its own post cycle is efficient enough to recover from their anabolic androgenic steroid cycles. Some however prefer to use both drugs to cover all angles. It is worth noting nolvadex is more profound in stimulating the increase of LH over time, on a milligram to milligram standpoint compared to that of clomid. Also many users complain of side effects from clomid such as visual implications and mood swings.

Aromasin & Tamoxifen During Post Cycle Therapy

Aromasin (Exemestane) is one of those weird compounds that nobody really knows what to do with. What we generally hear about it makes it very uninteresting…It’s a third generation Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) just like Arimidex (Anastrozole) and Femera (Letrozole). Both of those two drugs are very efficient at stopping the conversion of androgens into estrogen, and since we have them, why bother with Aromasin? It’s a little harder to get than the other two commonly used aromatase inhibitors, because it’s not in high demand, and there’s never been a readily apparent advantage to using it. And I mean…lets face it: It’s awkward-sounding. Aromasin doesn’t have much of a ring to it, and exemestane is even worse. Arimidex (Anastrozole) has a bunch of cool abbreviations (“A-dex” or just ‘dex) and even Letrozole is just “Letro” to most people. Where’s the cool nickname forAromasin/exemestane? A-Sin? E-Stane? It just doesn’t work. It’s the black sheep of AIs. And why do we even need it when we have Letrozole, which is by far the most efficient AI for stopping aromatization (the process by which your body converts testosterone into estrogen)? Letro can reduce estrogen levels by 98% or greater; clinically a dose as low as 100mcgs has been shown to provide maximum aromatase inhibition!
