Nolvadex (Tamoxifen) is a drug that has beneficial anti-oestrogenic properties, which competitively binds to oestrogen receptors which therefore blocks oestrogen from exerting effect. Nolvadex is an effective treatment for breast cancer, as many cancers of the breast are responsive to oestrogen, and therefore tamoxifen citrates ability to block oestrogen from exerting its action is very welcome and effective. Nolvadex is the brand name of Tamoxifen Citrate, thus it is commonly referred to as Nolvadex, or Nolva for short.
Nolvadex Uses Bodybuilding
The aromatase enzyme is capable of converting many anabolic androgenic steroids into the female hormone, oestrogen. Whilst some levels of oestrogen can actually be beneficial, excessive levels can bring about unwanted side effects to the user, such as water retention, possible increased fat storage, and gynecomastia.
Water retention can bring about a much less defined look to the user, as subcutaneous fluids increase. It can also bring about sudden increases in bodyweight to the user.
Gynecomastia is the formation of breast tissue, with sore and/or puffy nipples being early signs of its development. Use of an anti-oestrogen such as Nolvadex should be began as soon as possible to reduce the oestrogen exerting its effects which could worsen the condition. An anti-aromatase would be even more effective. If left untreated gynecomastia can develop to the point in which it is unsightly and can only be reversed via surgery.

Doping and the use of performance-enhancing drugs continue to be a problem in almost every sport. When usage advice comes from other athletes rather than ethical, medical professionals, there is an absence of vital safety information. There is no rational reason for taking breast cancer drugs (Nolvadex) in this manner, as a fix for the side effects of improper usage of another drug. The fact that this is happening is, frankly, somewhat shocking. Many people will stop at nothing to be bigger, stronger and faster, even if it means dying earlier, perhaps much earlier, than nature intended.
