Global Anabolic Arimidex 1mg
Arimidex (Anastrozole) is one of the most reliable anti-estrogens on the market today, which is used to relieve estrogen side effects caused by using anabolic steroids for a long period of time. Anastrozole was first used to treat breast cancer, and even replaced Nolvadex (tamioxifen citrate) due to its high potency, excellent results and few side effects. But now it is known among anabolic steroid users for its ability to lower estrogen levels to a favorable level where no side effects are observed with the use of anabolic steroids.
According to the reviews left, anastrozole in bodybuilding and sports is characterized by a rather pronounced effect. 1 ml of the active component of antiestrogen can reduce the concentration of estradiol in the blood by 80%. If we compare anastrozole with another powerful antiestrogen - Tamoxifen, the latter does not have such a powerful effect. But due to the different principles of action of these drugs on the body, such comparisons are incorrect. Anastrozole has a variety of positive effects on the body, expressed in:
- a significant reduction in aromatization - by 80% of the initial level;
- decreased suppression of the hypothalamus-pituitary-testes axis;
- a decrease in the concentration of estrogens, an increase in the concentration of anabolic hormones;
- due to a decrease in the amount of female hormones, the quality of muscles increases;
- the drug will be especially effective for athletes with a genetic predisposition to aromatization.
One of the main advantages of the drug, which makes it so popular in sports, is its fast action. The maximum concentration of the active component in the athlete's body occurs 2 hours after taking the pill. This allows you to suppress aromatization in the shortest possible time.
Combining this drug with other strong hormones that cause estrogenic side effects will protect you from them. Gynecomastia (male breasts) is considered one of the main side effects of high blood estrogen levels over a long period. Water retention is also thought to be due to the high levels of estrogen in the blood and is not needed by a bodybuilder, especially before a competition. This drug prevents this and other side effects when taken correctly.
Antiestrogen is indicated for use by experienced representatives of strength sports; the drug is not suitable for beginners. It is recommended to start the course of the drug after completing the intake of anabolic and androgenic drugs. Below is a more detailed instruction on the use of anastrozole in bodybuilding. In total, there are two schemes for taking the drug:
- with undesirable side effects from steroid drugs - gynecomastia, primary signs of aromatization, it is recommended to take 1 mg of the drug until the symptoms disappear, after taking antiestrogens in therapeutic doses of 0.5 mg;
- before starting the course of steroids for the prevention of adverse reactions during sports, anastrozole is used in therapeutic doses of 0.5 mg every other day.
The duration of antiestrogen intake should not exceed 2 weeks - this is enough time for the drug to have a proper effect on the athlete's body without causing adverse reactions. The speed of action of the drug is also influenced by the time of its administration - in order for the active component of the drug to be absorbed faster into the blood from the gastrointestinal tract into the bloodstream, you need to take the tablets on an empty stomach, while drinking them down with plenty of water.
Women are categorically contraindicated in taking this antiestrogen. Anastrozole can cause serious negative changes in hormonal levels, which leads to unpredictable consequences for women's health. Some women who practice strength sports may start taking the drug after menopause, but even then, its help is difficult to evaluate. Anastrozole is prescribed to women only for medicinal purposes for the treatment of breast cancer; antiestrogen stops the development of cancer by slowing down the growth of tumor cells.
The tactics of most domestic athletes is reduced to the use of aromatase inhibitors when the first signs of gynecomastia appear (edema, itching in the nipple area, redness). However, this approach is not optimal.
The most rational solution is to perform an estradiol test after about 10 days of taking anabolic steroids with a short half-life (testosterone propionate, methandrostenolone) or after 3-4 weeks of taking long esters (enanthate, sustanon, cypionate). Then an average dosage of anastrozole is prescribed 0.5 mg every other day. After 10 days, a control analysis of estradiol is carried out and the dosage is adjusted according to the results.
A compromise option would be to use a moderate or low dosage of anastrozole with a focus on subjective sensations. If after the appointment there is a drop in libido, erectile dysfunction, depression, then it is necessary to reduce the dose.
Arimidex, like any other drug on the market, has its own side effects, they depend only on how the body reacts to it. Those who take anabolic steroids may not suffer the same side effects as those who do not.
Some of the side effects for those who do not use steroids may include:
- Tingling sensation on the skin.
- Weakness and tiredness.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Bad sleep.
Be sure to see your doctor if you experience any of these side effects:
- Crack in the bone.
- Allergic reaction, rash, swelling of the face or lips.
- Increased blood pressure.
