Clomiphene Citrate — is an antiestrogenic product. This product is used effectively in sports practice. Clomiphene is regularly used by athletes in various disciplines as an aid to prevent or eliminate side effects associated with the use of flavoring anabolic steroids.
The active substance in this medicine, clomiphene citrate, is a synthetic estrogen that has antagonistic properties. Its action stimulates the secretion of gonadotropins, and thus increases testosterone levels. To summarize, Clomid is endowed with a number of advantages:
— First, the drug has estrogenic properties — it is able to create a selective connection of estrogen receptors.
— Second, it has the ability to stimulate the secretion of gonadotropin — elevated levels of LH and FSH, which leads to elevated levels of endogenous testosterone.
In bodybuilding and other sports, this product is used regularly for post-steroid therapy (PCT). Its other purpose is in medicine, where, unlike sports practice, clomiphene citrate is used to treat various diseases that affect women.
Clomiphene citrate lasts an average of about 2-3 weeks, and in a dose of 50-100 mg per day. Taking the tablets usually begins immediately after the end of the steroid cycle.
