Features and description of Anastrazole 1 mg Magnus Pharmaceuticals
Anabolic steroids that are used to achieve various athletic results often have the property of aromatisation. This is the process by which a male sex hormone is converted into a female hormone: oestrogen. The accumulation of oestrogen in the male body is fraught with negative consequences. Anti-estrogens (blocking the oestrogen receptors) or aromatase inhibitors (blocking the conversion process) are used to prevent this.
The drug Anastrazole 1 mg Magnus Pharmaceuticals belongs to the second group. It reduces the level of oestrogen in the blood, and this is due to its effect.
How Anastrazole 1 mg Magnus Pharmaceuticals affects the body
Not all anabolic steroids are prone to aromatization. If the steroid is not converted to oestrogen, you do not need to take the drug. In other cases it is a necessity, because
Anastrozole helps to:
- prevent gynecomastia;
- increase the concentration of anabolic hormones in the blood;
- eliminate swelling and, as a result, improve the relief;
- prevent high blood pressure;
- support the work of the testicles and the production of natural testosterone, which decreases when taking steroids.
Taking this medicine is the only way to get rid of the side effects that aromatisation brings.
Oestrogen is not an absolute evil for the male body. The problems lie only in its excess. On their own they help with a course of steroids. If the aromatase inhibitor suppresses oestrogen too much, you may develop:
- difficulty gaining weight;
- joint pain and bone tissue problems (decreased strength);
- lipid metabolism disorder;
- weak libido;
- depressive states.
To avoid side effects, you should take Anastrozole according to certain rules, which are described below.
Different treatment regimens are recommended for taking Anastrozole 1 mg, depending on the problem to be solved by the medicine.
If you need to prevent the development of oestrogen side effects, you should take it according to this scheme:
- amount – 0.5 mg (i.e. half a tablet);
- frequency of intake – every other day.
- If symptoms of gynecomastia begin to develop (itchy nipples, pain in the mammary glands and their enlargement), this approach is recommended:
- amount – 1 mg;
- frequency of intake – daily.
It is important to monitor the level of oestrogen in the blood. For this purpose, a special analysis is performed, based on the results of which a decision is made whether or not to continue taking the drug. If Anastrazole 1 mg Magnus Pharmaceuticals was taken because of gynecomastia, it is taken until the symptoms disappear, then the dose is reduced to prophylactic and the course is continued. It is best to undergo such treatment under the supervision of a doctor.
