Tamoxifen citrate is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), which was created in 1961 by the pharmacological company ICI, under the trademark AstraZenaca. Today, there are a lot of universal forms of Tamoxifen Citrate in the consumer market, but the most famous of them is Nolvadex. Very often Tamoxifen citrate is called anti-estrogen, although its positive functions do not end there. Its most important feature is to act simultaneously in some parts of the body as an anti-estrogen, and in others as an estrogen.
Distinctive features and main functions Tamoxifen citrate
The fact is that Tamoxifen citrate (Nolvadex) citrate is a drug of the SERM category, which can simultaneously act as an anti-estrogen and estrogen in different parts of the body. As an anti-estrogen drug is able to actively block the hormone estrogen. This fact is very important for patients with breast cancer, because often a malignant tumor eats precisely this hormone. Blocking the levels of estrogen is of great importance for lovers of beautiful relief, because the increase in the level of this hormone is adversely affected by muscle tissue and can lead to gynecomastia.
For many users of Tamoxifen Citrate, this drug is not fully understood, because its ability to act simultaneously as an estrogen and anti-estrogen is indeed very surprising. As estrogen Tamoxifen citrate acts in the liver. It strengthens the cardiovascular system of a person and improves the cholesterol balance. This fact is very important for most users of anabolic steroids, because most of these drugs have a negative effect on your cholesterol balance.
Also, Tamoxifen Citrate stimulates the pituitary gland and activates the production of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle-stimulating Hormone (FSH).
The positive effects of taking tamoxifen Citrate
For users of anabolic steroids, the positive effects of taking Tamoxifen Citrate are mainly due to the inclusion of this drug in PCT. It should be noted that such anabolic steroids, like Testosterone and Nandrolone, significantly increase the level of estrogen in the body. This is due to the conversion of testosterone to estrogen due to its interaction with the aromatase enzyme. The process of aromatization often leads to the appearance of such side effects as the retention of excess fluid in the body and gynecomastia. Over time, this can lead to high blood pressure. Tamoxifen citrate does not reduce estrogen levels in the body, but interacts directly with estrogen receptors and interferes with the activity of this hormone. It should be noted that this can not be a 100% guarantee of protection against gynecomastia for all men. A very great role in this matter is played by the genetic nature of man. If citrate tamoxifen does not provide the necessary protection, you need stronger drugs, and it’s better to start taking aromatase inhibitors (AI’s). Drugs of the AI’s category are anti-estrogens that block the action of aromatase and significantly reduce estrogen levels.
The most important feature of this drug for fans of anabolic steroids is its ability to activate testosterone production. The fact is that during the reception of anabolic steroids, the natural production of this hormone will definitely be suppressed. That is why almost all courses of hormonal anabolics have in their composition additional testosterone. Once your cycle has come to an end, appropriate measures must be taken to resume the process of natural production of testosterone. Recovery can occur on its own, but this will take a lot of time, and taking tamoxifen citrate will greatly accelerate this process.
It is very important to note that any PCT that includes tamoxifen citrate or any SERM will help you only if before you started taking anabolic steroids you did not have any problems with the natural production of testosterone.
Also, do not forget that many consumers of anabolic steroids are greatly mistaken when they think that a well-designed post-course therapy will contribute to a complete recovery of the body. In fact, Tamoxifen citrate will contribute to the recovery process, but it will not finish it. It takes several months to complete this process, but taking PCT will help you to survive this period more comfortably.
