As far as post cycle therapy (PCT) is concerned the best tools are Clomiphene Citrate, Tamoxifen Citrate, Salbutamol, Mesterolone, and HCG. As far as PCT is concerned the first thing anybody and everybody asks is whether PCT is necessary or not. There is no doubt that it absolutely is. Once a cycle comes to an end each and every bodybuilder out there aims for just one thing – to make sure that the gains made from that particular cycle are retained. The bad thing about this situation is that this is always easier said than done. The major reason for that is the fact that there are a lot of factors at play over here.
This includes plenty of hormones as well as many other substances that are right there in the system of the bodybuilder in question. This includes really high amounts of testosterone as well.
The substance known as Clomiphene Citrate can be described as an antiestrogenic nonsteroidal synthetic substance. It is also shortly referred to as Clomid and it is used in drugs as well. The substance itself happens to be quite well known for its usage in treating infertile women who suffer from anovulatory issues as well as polycystic ailments. A most prominent name, in this case, would be ovary syndrome diagnosis. It happens to be quite well known in the sporting arena with bodybuilding being the one area where it is used the most.
Tamoxifen Citrate can be described as a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). As far as the medicinal world is concerned this drug happens to be widely used especially in order to combat diseases such as breast cancer. In spite of being a SERM, bodybuilders use Tamoxifen Citrate as a triphenylethylene or an anti-estrogen.
Salbutamol is used by bodybuilders as well as people who are on a diet as well. They use it as a substitute for Clen (Clenbuterol). It is mainly availed with the intention of burning fat as well as enhancing performance.
However, the fact that the drug is abused can be confirmed by the fact that it can be found in the urine and plasma samples of many bodybuilders out there. This is especially applicable in the range of 10 to 500 mg per liter.
Mesterolone can be called an oral androgen and one of its traits is the ability to perform anti-estrogenic activities. It is however not similar to the other oral supplements out there. Neither is it 17 alkylated nor does it have drug hepatotoxicity.
As far as the medicinal world is concerned Mesterolone is used by men in order to treat sexual dysfunction, which happens mainly because the body has lower levels of testosterone.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin or HCG is found naturally in the body of female humans mainly when they are ovulating. It is the human placenta that secretes said substance. The properties of this hormone are just the same as the luteinizing hormone that is found naturally in human males. They both lead to the production of testosterone in the human body. It is quite popular as far as the medicinal world is concerned.
