There are many benefits associated with using Arimidex, though primarily we are going to focus on the steroid-related benefits first.
These include, but are not limited to:
<strong>1. No gyno</strong>
When men use steroids, one common side effect is gyno, or gynecomastia, as it is fully known.
Gyno is a condition that literally causes men to grow and develop breast tissue.
Now, it’s incredibly rare for a man to develop a full of breasts, although that has happened in the past.
What is more likely, however, is that the man in question will experience sore and tender nipples, which begin to swell and go puffy.
Men generally develop puffy nipples and begin to retain fat around their nipples that causes them to look swollen and unaesthetic.
Some people believe that gyno can be cured by simply losing weight and performing chest exercises to tighten and tone up the pecs.
This isn’t true.
Once you suffer from gyno, the only way to cure it is to undergo surgery.
It is rumored that The Rock himself had gynecomastia surgery during his WWF days in the late 90s.
When it comes to the gyno, prevention is the best cure, which is where Arimidex comes so useful.
Gynecomastia is caused when androgens in the body aromatize thanks to aromatase enzymes, causing a man to suffer from female characteristics.
Arimidex is an A.I, so androgens such as testosterone are unable to be converted into Estrogen.
The end result after a steroid cycle is a powerful, lean, and muscular chest that is completely free of any signs of gyno.
<strong>2. Reduced Acne</strong>
When you use steroids, another frequent side effect is acne.
Acne, or ‘backne’ as it is sometimes called because steroid users often experience spotty backs, can really dent your self-confidence.
When men use steroids, they do so because they want to look better and feel better about themselves.
Ironically, however, side effects such as acne can have the opposite effect.
Rather than feeling good about themselves, men actually feel worse because they’re so spotty.
If you remember what happened when you went through puberty, the sudden increase in testosterone caused you to develop spots and pimples.
When you use steroids, the same thing happens.
Arimidex, however, helps you to avoid acne after a steroid cycle.
So, you get to keep your gains, with the added bonus of having smooth and healthy skin.
<strong>3. No Water-retention</strong>
After bodybuilders finish running a steroid cycle, sometimes, again ironically, they find that their bodies look worse than before.
Sure, they’ve built muscle and they look big, but if they are dealing with a lot of excess Estrogen in the body, this can actually result in another side effect in the form of water retention and bloating.
After using steroids, most bodybuilders want to show off their gains and show off how ripped and vascular they are.
If androgens such as testosterone have interacted with aromatase enzymes however, this can actually result in excess Estrogen which causes the bodybuilder to retain water and look bloated and washed out.
Arimidex, therefore, is great for reducing and preventing water retention and bloating, making it a great drug for showing off those all-important gains.
<strong>4. Reduced Blood Pressure</strong>
It isn’t just for physical improvements that bodybuilders utilize Arimidex.
It turns out that the drug can also provide health benefits that will help you out internally too, which is crucial.
Too often, bodybuilders focus on how they look, that they forget about what’s going on inside their bodies.
Another very common side effect of steroid use is hypertension, also known as high blood pressure.
Hypertension is known as the ‘silent killer’ because it is a condition that can potentially be fatal, yet there are no obvious signs or symptoms of its presence.
Often, the only time to diagnose hypertension is to have your blood pressure tested by a medical professional.
Hypertension can cause damage to the arteries and blood vessels, it can cause damage to the kidneys, damage to the heart, it can cause blood clots, strokes, cardiovascular disease, and even heart attacks.
Needless to say, hypertension is a condition that nobody wants to suffer.
If you’re looking for just one reason to run Arimidex after your steroid cycle, how about the fact that it can help to significantly reduce and normalize blood pressure and can thereby help you to avoid/cure high blood pressure in the form of hypertension.
<strong>5. Restore Testosterone Levels</strong>
In some instances of steroid use and abuse, bodybuilders have managed to naturally shut down the production of this hormone in their own bodies.
This happens because the brain detects such elevated levels of testosterone, or what it perceives to be testosterone (steroids are synthetic versions of testosterone) in the body, and it thinks that something is wrong and that the tests are producing too much.
It, therefore, sends a signal to the testes, telling them to stop making testosterone.
It’s kind of like switching the engine off of an overheating car and allowing it to cool down.
When a bodybuilder is on gear, his T-levels are through the roof, so he doesn’t care that his balls are no longer making the hormone.
Once he jumps off-cycle, however, it’s a different story.
Bodybuilders that do not run PCT often have to receive testosterone replacement therapy for the rest of their lives because the tests are unable to start producing the hormone again after being closed down and put out of commission for so long.
PCT in the form of drugs such as Arimidex however, helps to restore your natural hormone production levels.
Even though Arimidex PCT is designed to reduce and prevent side effects from steroids, it does generally have a few common side effects of its own, that users need to be wary of.
