Tamoxifen in bodybuilding is widely used in conjunction with anbolic steroids for the prevention and treatment of gynecomastia – the growth of the female breast. Below, we will talk about how the breast cancer drug got into the pharmacological first-aid kits of modern bodybuilders, about the mechanism of action and effectiveness of tamoxifen on the PCT, as well as about side effects.
Each tablet contains 40 mg of the active substance Tamoxifen (DOE) (as citrate). The other ingredients are: calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium carboxymethyl starch, povidone, magnesium stearate and anhydrous colloidal silica.
Tamoxifen in bodybuilding on the cycle of steroids
In bodybuilding, tamoxifen is taken both on the cycle of steroids and after it (PCT). More often – after. Some types of steroids – nandrolone and testosterone – increase the level of estrogen, as it is partially converted into metabolism by the action of the enzyme aromatase.
Estrogen is growing – the probability of breast growth naturally increases, and more water is retained in the body, which can lead to an increase in blood pressure. What makes tamoxifen and why bodybuilders take it: it does NOT reduce the level of estrogen, but blocks the receptors of this hormone in the chest (makes them unresponsive). Accordingly, it has no effect on water retention and other possible side effects of an increased level of the female sex hormone…
Does tamoxifen guarantee full protection against gynecomastia? Not. It depends on the level of estrogen and genetic characteristics. If tamoxifen does not help, then a stronger protection is needed in the form of aromatase inhibitors, which prevent the conversion of testosterone to estrogen… Or maybe it’s time to think that you are engaged in garbage…
