Post Cycle Therapy Info
POST CYCLE THERAPY INFO (PCT)
Post Cycle therapy is crucial in helping your body recover after a prohoromone cycle. Post cycle therapy aims to restore the balance of the body, called homeostatis.
Many of the supplements taken today by extreme athletes require post cycle. This is because these supplements increase a particular production level in the body to a point that the body could not produce on its own. As a result the body repsonds by reducing its own production of that substance.
A cycle is exactly that because of this. The body needs to restore its levels and bring itself back to the proper balance and production levels. If a cycle is continued for to long then you run the risk of turning off the body's own production levels and permanently harming the body.
Following the use of a Prohormone your body's hormone creation centers have taken a step back and when the prohormone supplement is no longer there to make up the difference then your body's production levels are below normal levels.
The fastest and most efficient way to restore the body's natural hormone levels is to go through Post Cycle Therapy.
The most common question we are asked is "Will I lose my gains after I stop using prohormones/stop my cycle?"
A. Because of the low period where your body is no longer receiving the prohormone supplement your body goes into a slump and much of the hard earned gains will be lost. Doing a proper post cycle will avoid losing your gains. In fact a proper post cycle will allow you to keep a majority of your gains!
Q. How long should I take a post cycle for?
A. Most post cycle lasts 4 weeks, generally the bottle will be finished by then.
Q. After my Post cycle is done can I start another prohormone cycle?
A. Its recommended that you take 30 days off in between cycles. This helps the body get back in the habit of producing its hormones to a proper level and restores balance to the body.
Q. When should I buy Post Cycle therapy?
A. We recommend you purchase your post cycle at the same time you purchase your prohormone(s). The reason for this is you want to make sure its ready for when you need to take it. Also you will save money on shipping.
Q. When should I take Post cycle therapy (pct)?
A. You should take pct immediately following your prohormone cycle. For example if you run a 30 day cycle of superdrol, on day 31 you should start your pct.
Q. What is a SERM?
A. SERM stands for Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator, these block estrogen from acting on tissue. Common SERMs include Clomid, Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate), and toremifene.
Many people also include D-Aspartic Acid as part of their Post Cycle regiment as studies have shown DAA to raise free testosterone levels in human 42%. Read more about it here.
