Arimidex is a selectively acting, competitive non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor. This next-generation product is responsible for reducing estrogen levels in the blood. Its task is to inhibit aromatase, but this process is entirely reversible. The selective action of this product means that it does not affect other hormones. This product comes in the form of easy-to-take tablets, containing the active substance, anastrozole.
Arimidex and Its Use in Bodybuilding
Arimidex is quite commonly used by bodybuilders, strength athletes, and people who simply take anabolic steroids to develop the appropriate high-quality muscle mass or significant strength.
Among the mentioned user groups, Arimidex is quite popular. It is used in conjunction with steroids that exhibit strong aromatizing effects. Therefore, it is a good choice for individuals who are highly susceptible to gynecomastia (the development of breast tissue in males due to elevated estrogen levels). Proper use of this substance does not lead to side effects, as its action is not solely focused on blocking estrogen receptors but on addressing the root cause of estrogen production.
Proper Use of Arimidex
Of course, overdosing and improper use of this product can lead to various side effects, such as:
- Hot flashes
- Liver damage
- Gastrointestinal problems, etc.
To minimize the risk of such problems, it is recommended to use small doses within the range of 0.25 – 1 mg every 1-3 days. For less experienced individuals, effects of using this product can be noticed at a daily dose of 0.125 mg. Responsible dosing ensures that the hormonal balance of the body is not disrupted, prevents the aromatization effects of other steroids, and eliminates the need to worry about various side effects.
