Nolvadex (Tamoxifene citrate)

Tamoxifene citrate(Nolvadex)


Estrogen receptor antagonist: Tamoxifen citrate is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that acts as an estrogen receptor antagonist in some tissues and as an agonist in others. In bodybuilding, it is used primarily to control estrogenic effects.

Prevention of gynecomastia: One of the main uses of tamoxifen in bodybuilding is to prevent gynecomastia, the development of female breasts in men. It works by blocking the estrogen receptor in the glandular tissue of the breast, which reduces the risk of developing this side effect.

Reducing water retention: Tamoxifen can also help reduce water retention, especially when increased estrogen levels lead to water retention in the body. Estrogen control can improve the appearance of muscles, making them more defined.

Post cycle therapy (PCT): Nolvadex is commonly used in post cycle therapy (PCT) in bodybuilding. After completing a cycle of anabolic steroids, it can be difficult for the body to restore natural testosterone production. Tamoxifen helps restore hormonal balance more quickly.

Increase LH and FSH production: Tamoxifen citrate can increase the secretion of luteinizing hormone (LH) and folliculotropic hormone (FSH) by acting on the hypothalamic-nuclear axis. This in turn can increase testosterone production, which is desirable for bodybuilding.

Dosage: The dosage of tamoxifen citrate in bodybuilding depends on individual needs and the cycle used. Typical dosages are 20-40 mg per day for a period of several weeks, but the exact dosage may vary depending on individual conditions.
