|Nolvadex is one of the safest anti-estrogen drugs that is chiefly used by athletes and bodybuilders. Medically the drug is mainly prescribed for the treatment of breast cancer. Commonly referred as Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM), it was earlier used for the prevention of gynocomastia.
Though, Nolvadex is not a strong ancillary compound that you can use in your steroid cycle but it is one of the safest drugs. It does not reduce your body’s estrogen level, but just hampers the estrogen and receptor bond formation process, which resulted in various benefits for muscle growth. Due to its wide range of health benefits, the drug is mainly used by the bodybuilders during their steroid cycles.
For both male and female bodybuilders, Nolvadex is a quite useful anti-estrogen steroid. Most of its credit goes to its widespread use and positive results. Apart from being an anti-estrogen, the drug originally belongs to the group of sex hormones.
Unlike other anabolic steroids that have aromatization characteristic, Nolvadex works against the bonding of estrogen with receptors. Due to aromatization, male bodybuilders can experience a significant increase in estrogen level. As a result of which various feminine features, such as growth of breast glands and increased fat deposits occurred. With Nolvadex no such problems exist. So, bodybuilders can take the drug along with other anabolic steroids at the same time.
But before switching to the drug, it is important to know that Nolvadex acts only as an estrogen antagonist and does not prevent aromatization process. This particular feature of the drug has a disadvantage associated with it. After you discontinue the drug, you can experience a "rebound effect," which means that suddenly freed estrogen receptors rebound themselves actively.
Another main positive effect of this anti-estrogen compound is that it helps in fat-burning, though it does have any such characteristic. For athletes, who have water retention and mammary dysfunction problems, it is advisable that don’t take the drug along with strong androgenic steroids, like Danabol and Anadrol and also with various testosterone compounds. That’s why most of the bodybuilders prefer to take Nolvadex at the end of a steroid cycle as it also helps in increasing the body's own testosterone production level. Those who naturally have a low body fat content can achieve improved muscle hardness from the use of the drug.
Though the problems associated with Nolvadex are very few, but one of the most worried one is that sometimes instead of lowering the estrogen level the compound increases it to a very high level. Another disadvantage of its usage is that it can make the anabolic effect of some steroids weak. But this condition does not occur with those who take steroids in large amounts.
