Nolvadex is a powerful anti-estrogen and a favorite among bodybuilders.
It avoids the feminization phenomena that occurs frequently at the end of a cycle of anabolic steroids as gynecomastia and fat and fluid retention in the hips or breasts.
Indeed at the end of a cycle, most anabolic steroids aromatize into the estrogen hormone, causing the appearance of these symptoms.
Nolvadex has the ability to block estrogen receptors, preventing estrogen action that causes these phenomena. Many bodybuilders use Nolvadex before a competition because besides the fact that it prevents gynecomastia, it reduces water retention and fat, it also helps the bodybuilder to get a lean physique. Nolvadex also has the ability to increase the production of endogenous testosterone, which is particularly useful at the end of the cycle.
Nolvadex can be used during or after a treatment for your PCT in combination with Clomid.
