Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolva)
For male and female bodybuilders, Tamoxifen Citrate is a very useful and recommended compound which is confirmed by its widespread use and mostly positive results. Tomoxifen citrate belongs to the group of sex hormones and is a so-called anti-estrogen. The normal application of Tamoxifen citrate is in the treatment of certain forms of breast cancer in female patients. With Tamoxifen citrate, it is possible to reverse an existing growth process of deceased tissue and prevent further growth. The growth of certain tissues is stimulated by the body's own estrogen hormone. This is especially true for the breast glands in men and women since the body has a large number of estrogen receptors at these glands which can bond with the estrogens present in the blood. If the body's own estrogen level is unusually high, an undesired growth of breast glands occurs. However, in healthy women and particularly in men this is not the case. Despite this, it is mostly male bodybuilders who use Tamoxifen citrate, and fewer women. At first sight this seems somewhat inconceivable but when taking a closer look, the reasons are clear. Bodybuilders who take Tamoxifen citrate also use anabolic steroids at the same time. Since most steroids aromatize more or less strongly, i.e. part of the substance is converted into estrogens, male bodybuilders can experience a significant elevation in the normally very low estrogen level. This can lead to feminization symptoms such as gynecomastia (growth of breast glands), increased fat deposits and higher water retention.
