Among the credits that have been given to nolvadex include the prevention of breast tumors in women and this is what inspired its use in the world of steroids. It is the reason why people use it as a steroid and since many more men do not want to develop male breast tissues, it is the main reason it is used to prevent gynecomastia among men. This means too that the side effects that come with having a lot of estrogen in the body will have been avoided, even Virilization in women. You will not witness any hair loss or acne or any oily face due to Nolvadex. Nolvadex belongs to the classification of steroids referred to as SERM’s, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators. This means that it acts as an estrogen antagonist and an estrogen agonist depending on the state of the tissues. In layman’s terms, this means that it can be used to stop the activity of estrogen in some cases or foster this activity in some other cases.
The positive effects of Nolvadex depend on whether Nolvadex is being an agonist or an antagonist. As the agonist, it is used to reduce the levels of cholesterol among its users. For those who are using this as a steroid it can reduce the levels of bad fat in your body and improve the levels of good fat. This is good especially if you want to build the good weight in your body and drop the bad weight all the same. It has been used to improve the immunity of the user.
Using steroids for a long time may lead to the compromised production of the natural hormones in the body. This means that you will not have the luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormone but Nolvadex can be used to restore this production as well as the production of the testosterone which has been compromised. It is therefore used by athletes who are coming off some steroids.
Unfortunately, it has the side effect of compromising IGF in the body. IGF stands for the insulin growth factor, which means less muscle growth in the long run. You can use it to bulk, but not for a long time as this will compromise the levels of IGF in the body. Some of the side effects include problems with vision and this is particularly the case if it is used for a very long time without cessation.
