Post Cycle Therapy

AAS (Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids) are a well-known method for enhancing body shape and physical condition beyond what could be achieved through training alone. However, there’s no magic in this world, and nearly every powerful pill comes with side effects. Many anabolic steroids may cause hormonal imbalances, but these risks can be mitigated by using the correct dosage and stacking regimen. Nonetheless, it’s impossible to entirely eliminate the harmful effects. This is where PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) comes into play.

AAS, known as Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids, are a widely recognized method for enhancing body shape and physical fitness beyond what can be achieved through regular training alone. However, it’s important to recognize that there’s no magic solution, and nearly every potent pill comes with potential side effects. Many anabolic steroids have the potential to disrupt hormonal balance, although this risk can be minimized by carefully managing dosage and stacking. Nevertheless, it’s impossible to completely avoid harmful effects. This is where Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) becomes crucial.

When you supplement with exogenous testosterone, commonly referred to as synthetic anabolic hormones or steroids, your body’s natural hormone production is suppressed because it receives an ample supply of testosterone externally. This is why using steroids without proper caution is not advised. Different substances or combinations thereof are often cycled to mitigate this risk.

When you cease steroid use, your body’s natural ability to produce testosterone becomes compromised. Employing steroid cycles helps prevent the body from building a tolerance to the drugs and may aid in restoring natural testosterone production post-use. However, even after cessation, there remains a risk of muscle mass loss and an increase in estrogen levels. Additional side effects may include loss of libido, mood swings, fatigue, water retention, and more.

Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) can assist in restoring the body’s testosterone levels to normal and reducing the severity of these side effects.

When taking a course of Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs), it is advisable to begin Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) immediately after discontinuing their use. However, for Anabolic-Androgenic Steroids (AAS), it is recommended to wait for about a week before starting PCT. This timing difference accounts for the differing pharmacokinetics and effects of these compounds on the body’s hormonal balance.

Dosage and cycles

The Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) protocol for restarting the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis typically involves the use of either Tamoxifen or Clomid.

For Tamoxifen, the recommended dosage is 20mg daily for a duration of 4 weeks.

Clomid, on the other hand, follows a slightly more complex regimen:

In the first week of PCT, take 100mg daily.
During the second and third weeks, reduce the dosage to 50mg daily.
In the fourth week, further reduce the dosage to 25mg daily.
These medications help to stimulate the body’s natural testosterone production and restore hormonal balance after a cycle of anabolic steroid or SARM use.

Clomifene (Clomid)

week daily dosage mg
1 100
2 50
3 50
4 25

Tamoxifen (Nolvadex)

week daily dosage mg
1 20
2 20
3 20
4 20

These two medications could be mixed during PCT.

Suppression of catabolic reactions

The primary issue at the conclusion of a cycle is the decline in levels of crucial hormones such as testosterone and insulin-like growth factor (IGF), accompanied by an elevation in cortisol levels, leading to heightened catabolism.

Now, let’s discuss Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) and Post Cycle Therapy (PCT). To address this concern, it’s essential to find a substance with anti-catabolic properties that doesn’t suppress the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis. Ostarine emerges as an ideal candidate for these objectives.

Taking 25mg of Ostarine daily for a month can effectively safeguard muscle mass from degradation. This SARM boosts IGF-1 levels, rebalances nitrogen levels, and mitigates cortisol activity. Additionally, it may enhance muscle pump during workouts and improve erectile function.

Reduction of fat deposition

Some athletes have long believed that simultaneously combating fat and avoiding catabolism is an impossible feat. However, this changed with the introduction of Cardarine to the market. This remarkable tool facilitates fat burning without compromising muscle tissue integrity.

As a member of the SARMs family, Cardarine accelerates cellular energy processes, prompting muscles to utilize glycogen more actively. Consequently, they burn through carbohydrates, preventing their conversion into fat. Simultaneously, Cardarine activates lipolysis, converting fatty acids into a readily available energy source. Moreover, scientists are exploring Cardarine’s potential in treating diabetes.

To experience its benefits, a daily dosage of 25 mg of Cardarine is recommended. By incorporating this drug into your regimen, you can rebalance lipoprotein levels and enhance your overall health.

4 weeks 25mg per day

Normalization of the endocrine system

Another common issue in many Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid (AAS) cycles is elevated levels of estradiol, which can lead to undesirable side effects such as gynecomastia. If preventive measures are not taken, this condition may become irreversible, necessitating surgical intervention.

In such cases, we recommend incorporating Aromasin into your post-cycle regimen. This SARM can elevate insulin-like growth factor levels while simultaneously suppressing the aromatization process. It aids in accelerating the production of endogenous testosterone, making it an excellent addition to PCT protocols.

A daily dosage of 12.5 mg of Aromasin is recommended for a duration of one month. Additionally, we advise incorporating 50 mg of Andarine daily during the final stage of your cycle. This compound increases growth hormone and IGF-1 concentrations while restoring nitrogen balance. As a result, you can commence PCT before concluding your steroid cycle.
