Post Cycle Therapy or PCT is used after a cycle of prohormone, prosteroid or anabolic androgenic steroid cycle to maintain the gains and help prevent rebound effects or other side effects of a cycle. When anabolic steroids are taken some of the chemical balances of the body are disturbed which result in increased production of cortisol, estrogen and other hormones and a decrease in the production of testosterone. The best PCT helps to bring the body back to its natural state.
There are many PCT combinations but the main function of a PCT is to control estrogen and cortisol levels and boost testosterone. The best PCT contains Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators or SERMs which block the negative effects of estrogen as the hormone levels go back to their natural state. SERMs can only be obtained through a doctor’s prescription and the different SERMs available in the market include Tamoxifen, Clomiphene Citrate, Toremifene and Raloxifene. Which of these you choose to include in your PCT depends on the cost of each drug or the side effects experienced. Cortisol control can be achieved through B-Androstenetriol, Methyl B-Androstenetriol, Cissus, 7-Hydroxy-DHEA, 7-oxo-DHEA and Branched Chain Amino Acids. This is necessary as excess cortisol can damage the newly acquired mass. There are several different herbs which act as natural testosterone boosters such as Tribulus Terrestis, Long Jack and Avena Sativa.
The best PCT is one which is planned in advance ahead of your cycle. Do not wait to start your PCT. Once started it should be taken seriously. The estrogen control should be tapered down in the PCT while the testosterone boosters can be kept at the same levels during the therapy. The cortisol control is recommended to be increased after 15 days into the PCT. A PCT may run 4 to 6 weeks in duration so keep enough of all the products to keep an effective PCT running during this time.
During the PCT you can continue on the multivitamins and the supporting supplements that you usually take.
You can get a lot of information about the best PCT online through forums and pharmaceutical websites. The forums give the reviews and opinions of people who have run successful PCTs and they give their recommendations for dosage and how to conduct your PCT. Pharmaceutical websites give a listing of drugs available for purchase online and their description.
You can order online all the components of the best PCT online but be sure to go through a licensed site. It is very important that you receive the best ingredients in the market at a reasonable price. Order in one go all that you need for your PCT as this will get you savings and will save you the hassle of shopping again and again or running the risk in a break in your PCT due to unavailability of the drugs.
So take your PCT very seriously and you will be able to get your body back to its natural state while retaining the muscle mass gained.
