It shall be noticed, that in men, approximately 5% of testosterone undergoes 5α-reduction to form the more potent androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), also known as androstanolone. From another side approximately % of testosterone is converted into estradiol (the primary female sex hormone) by aromatase an enzyme expressed in the brain, liver, and adipose tissues. Hence, don`t forget to take precautions to avoid respective side effects. Thereof we recommend to perform blood works and take aromatase inhibitors on cycle (if required, anastrozole preferably) and SERMs (clomifene, toremifene) during post cycle therapy (PCT).
We don’t want to eliminate estrogen since it is needed for muscle growth and fat loss. Rather than eliminating all estrogen, we want to control estrogen in your favor! MTS Nutrition TYRANT™ can increase the amount of “good” estrogens (2-hydroxy) and decreases the amount of “bad” estrogens (4-hydroxy and 16-hydroxy). This means optimizing muscle growth and fat loss by producing more “good” estrogens while decreasing the risks of elevated “bad” estrogen levels. Cortisol is called the “stress hormone” because it is released in response to stress and anxiety. When released at a normal level, cortisol helps restore homeostasis after stressful events. But when too much cortisol is released or cortisol levels are elevated for too long, negative effects arise. Excessive cortisol levels can lead to suppression of the immune system, excessive protein breakdown, and the accumulation of abdominal fat. We don’t want to get rid of cortisol since we need it, we want to control it.
