Product Description: Tamoxsifene 10mg/50 Tablet
Tamoxifene citrate is a non-steroidal anti-estrogenic drug, used widely in clinical medicine. It is specifically a Selective Estrogen-Receptor Modulator (SERM) of the triphenylethylene family, and possesses both estrogen agonist and antagonist properties. As such, it may act as an estrogen in some tissues while blocking the action of estrogen in others. In breast tissue tamoxifene citrate is a astrong anti-estrogen, and as a result it is commonly used in the treatment of hormone-responsive breast cancer in women. In some cases it is even utilized as a preventetive measure, taken by women with an extreamly high familial tendency for breast cancer. In male bodybuilders and athletes, tamoxifene citrate is commonly used (of-label) to counter the side effects caused by elevated estrogenes subsequend to the use of certain anabolic-androgenic steroids.
The primary worry among the athletic/bodybuilding population is gynecomastia, or the very unsightly development of female breast tissue in men. this can be first noticed by the appearance of swelling or a smal lump under the nipple. If left to progress, this can develop into a large hard tissue gynecomastia that may be irreversable occurence without surgery. The estrogen can also lead to an increase in the level of water retained in the body, resulting in a notable loss of definiton as the muscles begin to look smooth due to the retention of subcutaneous fluid. Fat storage may also be increased as estrogen levels rise in men. In fact, differences in the estrogen/androgen ratio are one of the reasons women have a higher body fat percentage, and different fat distribution (hips/thighs), than men.
Tamoxifen citrate also posseses the ability to increase production of FSH (Follicile Stimulating Hormone) and LH (Luteinazing Hormone). This is accomplished by blocking negative feedback inhibiton caused by estrogen at the hypothalamus and pituitarity hormones. Since higher release of LH can stimulate the leydig's cells in the testes (men) to produce more testosterone, tamoxifene citrate can have a positive impact on one's serum testosterone level. This "Testosterone Stimulatiıng" effect is an added benefit when preparing to conclude a steroid cycle. Since anabolic/androgenic steroids tend to suppress endogenous testosterone production , tamoxifene citrate can help restore a balance in hormone levels. It is commonly used as part of a comprehensive post cycle recovery program.
