Tamoxol Tablets AP (Nolvadex)
Tamoxol Tablets are the most popular anti-estrogen. It assists in the prevention of water retention.
Tamoxol Tablets is a brand name for the drug Tamoxifen citrate, a nonsteroidal agent which demonstrates potent antiestrogenic properties. These antiestrogenic effects are due to its ability to compete with estrogen for binding sites in target tissues such as in the breast. Medically, the effects make it very useful in breast cancer patients. Male bodybuilders however, find it very effective in combating gynecomastia (female breast tissue development). Gynecomastia is caused by excess estrogen in the male body. In the steroid user, this hAPpens when anabolic steroids aromatize into estrogens. This is not as odd as you may think, structurally these hormones are very similar. So with Nolvadex competing for and occupying estrogen receptors, the buildup of tissue is greatly reduced and often avoided. It should be noted that it also seems to slightly reduce to gains made during a steroid cycle. Some believe estrogen plays a role in keeping androgen receptors open. This may explain why it would slightly hinder gains. Regardless of this effect is the most popular anti-estrogen used by athletes and many people swear by it. One should remember though that many athletes find no need for Nolvadex while others absolutely need it to avoid a gynecomastia problem. One should be aware of how much they actually need an ancillary drug like this before committing to use it during a cycle.
