Stupid People's Guide to Post Cycle Therapy

Let's start by saying that you don't have to go through post cycle therapy ……… you also don't have to wipe your ass after taking the dump: it's just a really good idea to do these things

The first thing we need to understand is what is happening to our bodies as we take anabolic steroids:

Exogenous anabolic hormones (or derivatives of anabolic hormones) are being brought into your system. This causes the body to take some responsive action. The first and foremost (as you know) is the increase in muscle mass. Unfortunately, other things also happen that aren't so great

When an enzyme or hormone is carried exogenously into the system, chemical equilibrium shifts to achieve a certain equilibrium. This is a chemical concept known as Le Chatelier's Equilibria Chemical Principle. In short, your body will increase the production of estrogen, cortisol, and other hormones in response to increasing testosterone levels, while simultaneously slowing down (or completely stopping) the natural production of testosterone. Biologists call this a negative feedback ....... biologists suck right?

Le Chatelier's principles for scientific interference:

Let's pretend A and B respond to make C (it can't be easier).

A + B --------> C

Therefore, we have mixtures containing A, B, and C. According to LeChatlier's principle, if we add more C to the mixture, the sum of A and B will increase. If we remove some C from the mixture, A and B will decrease. And if we add A, B, or a second combination, C will increase. Still with me here? Yes, sir.

What happens when we get out of the cycle:

Ok, so when we are in the cycle, the production of natural test will decrease to compensate for the exogenous test taking, and the production of other steroid hormones (ie Estrogen, Cortisol, etc.) will offset the increase in test levels. When we get out of the cycle, we stop taking exogenous testosterone. In other words, we have very low test levels, and very high levels of cortisol and estrogen: it is OPPOSITE exactly what we had when we started our cycle.

Remember Le Chatelier's Principle because this is where it really matters. When we have an excess of one hormone, the other begins to shift, to achieve a certain balance. Ok, I'll say it again (and dare) again because that's just important. When we have an excess of one hormone, the other begins to shift, to achieve a certain balance. It's a very common misunderstanding that we want to eradicate estrogen. High estrogen levels play an important role in Post-cycle therapy. Yes, you want to welcome high estrogen with open arms, but there is one trick to it. And the trick is the powerful SERM (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modifier).

SERM: basic post-cycle therapy:

The Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator is (and damn should be) the basis for a proper post-cycle therapy plan. A post-cycle therapy plan without them, not a PCT plan: it's a bunch of crap that you decide to take after doing the cycle. The purpose of SERM is to prevent the negative effects of estrogen, while your hormone levels return to balance.

SERM is a prescription drug, and is NOT ALLOWED WITHOUT SUPPLEMENT. In fact, there are only 3 ways (you can think) where you can get SERM:

1) Through Doctor's Prescription.

2) Through the Black Market (a.k.a. illegal)

3) As a research chemical intended for use in laboratory mice.

Different SERMs:

Tamoxifen (Nolvadex):

Reputation: The most popular SERM for post-cycle therapy

Advantages: Cheap. Effective for gyno prevention.

Cons: Heptatoxicity. Studies have proven to lower IGF levels (I don't feel like picking, but it's about 20% less ... IMO not that great).

Popular Dosage (for 4 weeks cycle): 40/40/20/20

Note: Tamoxifen Citrate is less potent, and should be supplemented with an additional 30%.

Clomiphene Citrate (clomid):

Reputation: The two most popular. It is usually taken in the first week or so to speed up the recovery of Testosterone with Tamoxifen taken throughout the therapy.

Advantages: Better than Tamoxifen for HTTP regernation. Lack of hepatatoxicity. It does not lower IGF.

Disadvantages: Less effective against gyno. It can cause emotional problems. May cause blurred vision. Hot Flashes.

Popular doses (for 4 weeks cycle): 100-200mg / 100mg / 50mg / 50mg

Toremifene:

Reputation: Very popular on this board

Advantages: Less toxic.

Con's: $$$$$ expensive $$$$$

Popular doses (for 4 weeks cycle): 120-240mg / 120mg / 60mg / 30mg

Raloxifene:

Reputation: Very effective against gyno

Advantages: Strong protection against gyno. Less toxic than Tamoxifen.

Con's: Cost Limit. May cause abnormal blood clots in the eyes, lunges, and feet. It may also cause respiratory problems, and blurred vision.

Popular Dosage: (for 4 weeks cycle): 120-240mg / 120mg / 60mg / 30mg

Launching Hierarchy post cycle therapy: Cortisol control

Excessive cortisol can damage your newly discovered muscle mass. Because of this, it's a good idea to use something to prevent or lower your cortisol levels. Always start high, and tap down. Here's what we need to work with:

B-Androstenetriol (b-triol): This is one of the better suppressors of cortisol. It has terrible oral bioavailability, and should be taken transdermally. Dosage is between 25-50mg every 12 hours.

Methyl B-Androstenetriol (mb-triol): This is an improved version of b-triol for oral use. Found in the following products: Permanent (by Anabolic Xtreme), Return (by ALRI), Thyrogen-X (by ALRI)

7-Hydroxy-DHEA: Another powerful cortisol suppressor with excellent oral bioavailability. Found in the following products: Lean Xtreme (by Designer Supplements), Reduce XT (by SNS)

7-oxo-DHEA (7-keto-DHEA): Still a good competitor, it has poor oral availability and a worse half-life (2 hours). This is best taken transdermally, where the effect is reversible.

Cissus: Unlike the above, Cissus components do not block Cortisol, but do block cortisol receptors (better than Nandrolone or Dianabol according to some studies). The dosage differs significantly (the extract is not completed). SuperCissus by USPLabs is a high quality Cissus product.

Amino Acid Branched Chain: This should be a staple to begin with, but it is a great anti-catabolic agent that reduces the effects of removing cortisol muscles.

At the bottom of the hierarchy of post-cycle therapy there are AI, Test Booster, and an 'natural' & # 39; others

There are too many different things happening here to go into too much detail. Just one word of caution (and this is my personal opinion), but if you make the post-cycle plan look like a constitutional amendment: you do it too. And the worst part is that if something goes wrong, you won't have a clue what caused it.

Honorable mentions this section of the hierarchy:

Jungle Warfare (by ALRI)

MassFX (by Anabolic Xtreme)

Hyperdrol (by Anabolic Xtreme)

Ecdysterone / Turkesterone

Creatine Monohydrate

Can you tell me I'm bored after work today?
