Arimidex AstraZeneca (Anastrozole) - 28 tabs (1mg/tab)
Arimidex is a strong anti-estrogen - aromatase inhibitor. It stops the conversion of testosterone to estrogen and blocks its production. Arimidex is taken to prevent gynecomastia and removes water retention in the body.
Arimidex belongs to a group of products called aromatase inhibitors. This means that arimidex is associated with the action of aromatase, an enzyme in the human body that affects the level of estrogen, a female sex hormone.
Arimidex is mainly used to treat breast cancer in postmenopausal women, also for estrogen related problems in men and women. But in the last few years, Arimidex has gained popularity in sports circles as a preparation that is administered as PCT (post steroid therapy). Traditionally Clomid was taken for this purpose, but recently Arimidex has been the preferred choice. It appears that it is a very good anti-estrogen in helping to normalize own testosterone production, by inhibiting excess estrogen.
Reducing estrogen can be done in several ways - by blocking it, by destroying it, by occupying existing estrogen receptors, by reducing sex hormone binding globulin, which in turn interferes with estrogen formation or as is the case with Arimidex, by preventing conversion (aromatization) of excess testosterone to estrogen.
Which method of reducing estrogen is preferable depends on several factors, but for most bodybuilders, often, anti aromatase is the best choice and in this regard, Arimidex works very well. The preparation has the additional, unique benefit of increasing "free" testosterone.
- Effect and action of Arimidex:
This anti-estrogen preparation, works by blocking the enzyme aromatase, subsequently Arimidex blocks the production of estrogen in the body. Since many forms of breast cancer cells are stimulated by estrogen, reducing the levels of this hormone in the body can slow the progression of the disease. As a comparison to another anti-estrogen, Nolvadex, which blocks the action of the estrogen receptor but not the actual endogenous production, the effect of Arimidex is significant, with a daily dose of 1 mg having the effect of suppressing estrogen production by over 80% in treated patients.
Arimidex has the effect of completely stopping the conversion of testosterone to estrogen (aromatization), thus preventing the occurrence of gynecomastia. Arimidex reduces water retention caused by highly androgenic anabolic steroids such as testosterone and methandienone.
Arimidex also works well as an adjunct to hormone replacement therapy. It keeps estrogen low, thus preventing possible prostate enlargement. Arimidex helps to maintain natural testosterone production even while taking an exogenous source of testosterone. Arimidex does not have as great an impact on blood lipids and does not affect libido as much as other anti aromatising preparations. In fact, many men report increased libido while using Arimidex.
- Arimidex Dosage:
For the purpose of fitness trainers and bodybuilders, to control estrogen during a steroid cycle, Arimidex dosages may be different in each case. It depends on the doses of anabolic steroids taken, the sensitivity of the individual to the given aromatizing steroids and therefore the doses in each case may vary from 0.5 to 1 mg every day or every other day.
The recommended Arimidex dose is 0.5 mg every other day. Of course the dose can always be adjusted if the user feels it is insufficient, or if the reduction in estrogen level is too much.
There are no special considerations about taking Arimidex, the dose can be taken at any time of the day (morning, evening, before, during or after meals).
It should be known that to reach optimum peak level in blood plasma, the Arimidex takes 1 full week (7 days), although its half-life is approximately 48 hours.
This article describes the use of Arimidex by athletes who use anabolic steroids so they can protect themselves from the side effects associated with estrogen.
