HCG is one of the most important medications used in post cycle therapy. It works at stimulating the body producing natural testosterone once again. During anabolic steroid use the body can start to slow down its natural production while HCG can spur the body into producing its natural testosterone once again. In medicine HCG is used as an infertility treatment in men and hypogodadism.
Having the ability to mimic the luteinizing hormone within the body gets the cells to continue producing testosterone at their regular androgen level. Balancing out the right levels of cortisol and ensuring that the breakdown of protein within the muscles doesn’t occur is very important to athletes who have just completed steroid cycles. Normalizing testosterone levels with the help of this medication will make sure that proteins aren’t stripped and that the results that you have worked so hard to get won’t be instantly stripped away.
HCG is generally used with antiestrogen select Nolvadex and Clomid and the best practice for dosage involves injecting 1500 to 3000 IU for 2 to 3 weeks every fourth or fifth day. This isn’t a product recommended for women.
Nolvadex is a selective estrogen blocker which can prevent negative estrogen-based side effects from the build of the vestry and throw your body. The way that this medication works is by preventing estrogen from acting upon certain receptors in our body which can prevent negative side effects such as water retention and gyno for athletes that are utilizing aromatizing steroids like testosterone.
Nolvadex works to redistribute the testosterone in the body and stimulates LH production which can provide a big benefit after an athlete is finished some type of steroid cycle. Taking doses of tamoxifen in a PCT program for 4 to 6 weeks can ensure that the body chemistry normalizes and then all of the games that an athlete makes over their cycle can remain permanent. In most cases athletes will take the medication with their cycle and then shortly after the cycle.
