What is Letrozole?
Letrozole is an anti-estrogen and one of the most potent Aromatase Inhibitor. It is used by many bodybuilders during post cycle therapy (PCT) and complements other anabolic steroids or prohormones. this drug helps the body get back to its normal stage and stabilize the hormonal levels.
Benefits of Letrozole
#1: It was specifically designed to fight the estrogen receptor. It is the most powerful aromatase inhibitor ever created. It is very effective at reducing estrogen levels, which is why it is often stacked with other anabolic steroids like Equipoise and Dianabol.
#2: The drug fights Gynecomastia, or a condition commonly described as male boobs. One of the side effects of taking anabolic steroids is the excessive development of the male breast. Taking Letrozole along with the anabolic steroid can help reduce or even prevent this side effect.
#3: It also prevents other side effects caused by the excessive intake of anabolic steroids such as acne, excessive deposits of fat in unwanted areas and bloating or increased water retention.
#4: This is an essential part of the post cycle therapy or PCT. It helps bodybuilders and professional athletes retain their newly developed muscles even after finishing the steroid cycle.
How Does Letrozole Work?
It also prevents the production of estrogen in the body by blocking the aromatase enzyme. This drug is used in the treatment of breast cancer in women as it decreases the serum estrogen levels by a substantial margin. It can prevent the spread of diseases or health disorders caused by the excessive production of estrogen hormones.
It stimulates the release of the Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), which are so essential for the natural production of testosterone.
It is one of the most effective backup medications for low testosterone for this reason. Its anti-estrogenic effects are particularly beneficial for bodybuilders during post-cycle therapy (PCT).
While this drug does clamp down on estrogen production in a significant manner, it is important to note that having extremely low levels of estrogen in the body can be harmful to the immune system, which is why you should stick to the recommended dosage.
How to Take Letrozole?
The recommended dosage for Letrozole depends on the reason you’re taking this drug for. For instance, the suggested dosage for women that take Letrozole for breast cancer is completely different from those who take it purely as a bodybuilding supplement.
For bodybuilding, the recommended Letrozole dosage should be between 1.25 to 2.5 mg a day during post-cycle therapy. If you’re a beginner to bodybuilding, take no more than 0.5 to 1 mg a day.
Note: Women should not take Letrozole for bodybuilding unless they are in the post-menopausal phase.
