The estrogen blocker
Clomid blocks estrogen receptors and strengthens the natural production of testosterone in the body. It is widely used after the end of the steroid cycle, because it allows to restore the normal hormonal economy of the athlete’s body. In turn, taking clomid during the cycle can reduce the risk of androgenic side effects of steroid treatment or gynecomastia. Nolvadex is better in this area, which is more often used to reduce gynecomastia than Clomid.
Clomid blocks the burst of cortisol and, thus, prevents the breakdown of protein cells and, thus, has an anti-catabolic effect and prevents weight loss after the end of the steroid cycle. Nolvadex mentioned the same thing. In general, Clomid and Nolvadex are preparations of the same group, with a similar chemical composition and very similar properties, so they are often used interchangeably.
Effective drug after cycle
Clomid is especially recommended for those bodybuilders who have completed a cycle consisting of strong androgenic steroids. Although there is no need to use this measure with weaker doping agents, in the case of steroids leading to large changes in the hormonal economy (for example, testosterone, nandrolone), this is considered a necessity.
Doses aimed at blocking estrogen receptors and restoring the natural production of testosterone between 50-100 mg per day for 4-6 weeks after the end of the steroid cycle. For longer cycles of more than 10 weeks, Clomid can be started with an overdose of up to 250 mg to gradually reduce it to 100 mg and take a normal dose of 50-100 mg in a few days.
The disadvantage of Clomid is that it does not lead to an increase in muscle mass, so do not put yourself on this effect. In addition, some bodybuilders indicate the occurrence of strong side effects in the psyche associated with changing moods and even depressive states. After the termination of clomid, these symptoms disappear. In addition, it can cause hot flashes, nausea, vomiting, vision problems, sleep disorders and skin changes. In fact, Clomid is a drug with low and rarely perceived harmfulness.
