Is not a steroid, rather a selective estrogen blocker. While Nolvadex doesn’t prevent the buildup of estrogen in the body, it does prevent it from acting on certain receptors, most notably, those located in the nipples. This has obvious benefits to bodybuilders, because this is the area in which “gyno” occurs during the use of aromatizing steroids such as testosterone. Nolvadex also offers another great benefit to bodybuilders due to the fact that it can greatly increase the amount of testosterone that the body makes by stimulating LH production. This makes the drug a great choice for PCT.
Bodybuilders often use Nolvadex in doses of 10-20mgs a day throughout cycle duration where gyno is a concern. Those looking to incorporate Nolvadex into their PCT program will typically run the substance at similar doses for 4-6 upon the discontinued use of all steroids. Users may also choose to add proviron and/or HCG to their PCT protocol.
