What is Nolvadex ?
Nolvadex is part of the anti-estrogen group of drugs. It is not a steroid compound. Its main characteristic is that of preventing estrogen absorption in some of the receptors.
In the beginning, it was produced for women, as Nolvadex has the ability to slowdown the tumor progression. It is considered to be an effective estrogen fighter, therefore it is widely used in the bodybuilding community.
Nolvadex does not prevent estrogen to form, instead it fights estrogen by blocking estrogen receptors in the body. It is believed that Nolvadex may also increase muscle density. The active substance is Tamoxifen Citrate, which is well known as being effective against estrogen-related adverse affects, such as gyno, water retention and fat buildup. Having said that, users must be aware of the fact that Nolvadex does not entirely stop flavoring, being only an estrogen blocker.
How to Use Nolvadex
Nolvadex dose starts at 20mg/day for one week. After first week, users should increase the dosage to 30 or 40mg/day, depending on cycle complexity. It is recommended to use it in conjunction with Proviron, in order to avoid the "boomerang effect" which basically means that estrogen receptors can start collecting estrogen again, after users stop taking Nolvadex.
