Characteristics of the active ingredient
Vetrosol tablets have an oppressive effect on the biochemical process of aromatization - the synthesis of estradiol based on testosterone. After the drug in the body decreases the concentration of female sex hormones and their effects. Antiestrogen is a selective means - it affects only the flavor, without affecting the formation and effects of other hormones.
The drug was originally developed to treat hormone-dependent breast tumors in women during menopause. Due to the reduction of estrogen levels, letrosol can slow down the growth of malignant cells, prolong the period of remission.
The drug is produced by different pharmaceutical companies in standard dosages. How much letrosol costs depends on the brand and the country of manufacture.
The active ingredient is 99.9% absorbed in the digestive tract, enters the bloodstream, creating a stable concentration in the body. The active component is able to partially bind with plasma proteins. It undergoes metabolism under the influence of the liver enzyme system. The excretion of the decomposition products of the compound occurs through the kidneys and intestines within 48 hours after admission.
The use of lethrosol in sports
Bodybuilding often uses anabolic steroids to build muscle mass, but they have an undesirable effect on the male body - they cause gynecomastia, swelling of tissues, slow down muscle growth.
The product has gained popularity in sports and bodybuilding due to a number of pharmacological properties:
- elimination of the negative impact of excess estrogen on the male body;
- reduction of edema, excess fat deposits, prevention of arterial hypertension;
- rapid elimination of gynecomastia caused by taking anabolic steroids;
- improving the relief of the body;
- improving the efficiency of strength training and drying;
- strengthening positive effects of anabolics;
- preventing "catabolic failure" after the steroid course.
Bodybuilders who used lethrosol have mostly positive feedback. Athletes notice rapid improvement and disappearance of side effects of anabolics.
Lethrosol for men in bodybuilding is not used in such situations:
- in the presence of individual intolerance to antiestrogen or additional components of the tablet;
- in hereditary digestive disorders (galactose intolerance, glucose-galactose malabsorption);
- medium and severe disorders of kidney and liver function.
Aromatase inhibitor is not prescribed to women in sports, because it causes non-physiological fluctuations of hormonal background and leads to severe disregulation of the reproductive system.
Letrosol undergoes biochemical reactions in the liver with the participation of cytochrome, so its effectiveness is affected by drugs that alter the activity of hepatic enzymes. It is forbidden to take antiestrogen in combination with ketoconazole, itraconazole, ritonavir, clarithromycin.
It is not desirable to combine the drug with tamoxifene, which reduces the level of flavor blocker in the blood and reduces its pharmacological properties.
In the instructions for use, manufacturers of lethrosol indicate such undesirable effects of taking the drug in sports:
- CCC - blood tides and heat to the face, heart rate, myocardial ischemia;
- CNS - headaches and dizziness, insomnia, impaired taste perception;
- psycho-emotional manifestations - depression, anxiety, unreasonable irritability;
- skin reactions - increased sweating, polymorphic rash, itching, hives;
- from the musculoskeletal system - muscle and joint pain, bone fragility;
- gastrointestinal tract - nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, pain in epigastria, dry mouth.
The probability of adverse reactions increases in men who do not follow the recommended doses and multiples of taking, independently increasing the duration of taking the pills.
Feedback on Vista lethrosol and anti-estrogen from other brands shows that against the background of taking may occur concentration disorders. After taking the drug, it is better to abstain from driving a car and working with dangerous moving mechanisms.
Letrosol, the price of which depends on the selected brand name, is taken on post-course therapy (PCT) upon completion of anabolic steroids. In the first 7-10 days, the drug is prescribed 2.5 mg (1 tablet) daily. Then the dosage of flavor blocker is reduced to 0.5 mg per day and continues to be used for 2-3 weeks.
Pharmacokinetics of the drug depends on food intake. To achieve maximum effects, letrosol is taken on an empty stomach or 2 hours after meals. You can use the drug at any time of day, but it is desirable to observe equal intervals between dosages.
Therapeutic course in bodybuilding lasts maximum 4 weeks, a man only needs to buy one package of the drug.
