Substance: Clomiphene Citrate
Brand: Balkan Pharmaceuticals
Clomed is a product with the active ingredient – Clomiphene Citrate, this is a SERM type of drugs (Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator) and so is pretty much in the same grouping as is tamoxifen (nolvadex), but the product might better known by its other brand name more famous – Clomid. The difference between Clomed and Clomid is the manufacturer but the active ingredient is the same. By resorting to Clomed – you are going to save a lot of money compared to Clomid. That’s because Clomed is manufactured by Balkan Pharmaceuticals, a company that is offering high quality drugs for cheaper prices.
This stuff is most widely prescribed product for ovulation induction, and therefore is very useful for those who are having infertility issues.
Nonetheless, there are a lot of male bodybuilders who have found it useful either. They are using it as a cycle of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) for the same mechanism of action. Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate) is considered very popular for Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) for those who are using anabolic steroids. They found it very helpful when using estrogenic steroids like deca durabolin, dianabol or testosterone, plus it is helpful for gynecomastia treatment either.
How Does Clomiphene Work?
Clomiphene citrate is working by increasing the LH (Luteinizing Hormone) and this is an advantage because is increasing total testosterone levels. Clomed is having the ability to bind to the estrogen receptors and that’s why is helpful as a PCT product and as an anti gyno product, however, it is considered to be a pretty weak anti gyno and that’s why many people prefer other products when it comes to treatment of gynecomastia.
In order to make it easier to understand – when a steroid user is running a cycle their HPTA is going to get suppressed and therefore their bodies LH and FSH is going to nearly 0 so their body does not produce testosterone naturally. With this being said, it is important to run a PCT (post cycle therapy) when the bodybuilder is coming off a cycle as this would greatly help to recover the body’s HPTA.
Clomiphene citrate (active ingredient in Clomed) is stimulating the hypophysis for releasing more ganodotropins. Ganodotropins are protein hormones that are being secreted by gonadotrope cells of the pituitary gland and is stimulating faster and higher release of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) as well as luteinizing hormone (LH). When this increase occurs, the rise in LH is going to go up so the total testosterone levels allows the user to keep normal levels until their bodies would recover on their own.
In short – when you use steroids, your pituitary is receiving information that the testis are making too much testosterone (because of the fact that you artificially use steroids) and that’s why LH falls so the testis stop making testosterone naturally. Clomid is “fooling” the pituitary, manipulating it into producing more LH.
Remember that Clomid is not a steroid so it won’t help you build muscles. It is in no way a steroid – is a SERM. That is the main reason why trying to use Clomed for gaining muscles from high testosterone levels is making no sense. The only Clomed use is when you come off a steroid and use clomiphene as a Post Cycle Therapy.
