Substance: Clomiphene citrate (Clomid)
Package: 50mg (10 pills)
Clomid 50mg from Cipla is one of the most commonly used post-treatment therapies in bodybuilding. Any of the available anabolic steroids in one way or another inhibits the function of the arc of the pituitary-hypothalamus-testes, which leads to a significant decrease in the body’s secretion of the athlete’s endogenous testosterone. After the completion of the steroid course, therapy is always required, aimed at normalizing and renewing the natural production of testosterone, which is called “post course therapy” or, briefly, PCT (PCT). The active ingredient of the described drug is “Clomiphene Citrate.”
Both amateurs and professional athletes often use Clomid 50. Similarly, athletes often use a variety of other chemicals, such as anabolic steroids, hCG, tamoxifen, thyroid hormones, etc. Unlike other anabolic steroids or hormones, clomid does not help reduce testosterone levels. On the contrary, causing a surge in LH, Clomid increases testosterone levels.
Almost all anabolic steroids have both androgenic and anabolic properties. In some cases, anabolic steroids contribute to the formation of estrogen. With the help of the enzyme, aromatase is also converted into the female sex hormone, estrogen. Estrogen contributes to the development of gynecomastia in bodybuilders. Although bodybuilders love to show off their bodies, hardly any of them will want to flaunt a womanlike chest. Therefore, clomid is used to block the development of gynecomastia. By blocking estrogen receptors, it prevents the development of gynecomastia caused by anabolic steroids.
When clomid blocks estrogen receptors in the brain, the hypothalamus causes a surge in LH and FSH – releasing hormones, which leads to an increase in the synthesis of sex hormones. LH and FSH also act on the testicles, causing further testosterone synthesis. Testosterone gives the athlete an extra boost. Some bodybuilders take clomid only for an anabolic effect. Others use it in combination with other steroids and growth hormone.
If you take Clomid 50mg for a short period of time and adhere to these doses, then it is quite safe. Most of the adverse reactions caused by Clomid are temporary and disappear after stopping its use.
