Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolvadex) is a non-steroidal agent that demonstrates potent anti-estrogenic properties, by competitively binding to estrogen receptors in various target tissues. With the Tamoxifen molecule bound to this receptor, estrogen is blocked from exerting any action and an anti-estrogenic effect is achieved. It is however, important to understand that this does not prevent aromatization but only acts as an estrogen antagonist. Tamoxifen is especially beneficial in combination with the various testosterone compounds.
This compound also shows the ability to increase production of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone) in the male body. This is accomplished by blocking negative feedback inhibition caused by estrogen at the hypothalamus and pituitary, which fosters the release of the mentioned pituitary hormones. Since a higher release of LH can stimulate the Leydig cells in the testes to produce more testosterone, this can have a positive impact on one serum testosterone level.
Of great interest also is that Tamoxifen is an estrogen agonist in the liver, capable of activating the estrogen receptor and mimicking the actions of this sex hormone-in this region of the body. As such it can have a markedly positive impact on HDL (good) cholesterol values, as does estrogen.
The typical daily dosage taken is 20 mg. This drug is not toxic and has few if any side effects when taken at this dosage.
