Arimidex, also known as anastrozole is a drug used in the post-surgical treatment of cancer.It is also used in the treatment conditions in pre and post menopausal women caused by cancer cells. The drug breaks down estrogen, this is important because it inhibits the growth of breast cancer cells, which need to develop estrogen.
Arimidex (anastrozole) is the aromatase inhibitor of choice. The drug is used appropriately when using large amounts of flavoring steroids, or when one is inclined to Gynecomastia and the use of moderate amounts of these steroids. Arimidex does not have the side effects of aminoglutheride and can reach a high degree of estrogen blockade. It is possible to reduce estrogen with Arimidex, and for this reason, blood tests, or salivary tests, preferably should be done after the first week of use to determine if the dosage is correct.
Arimidex has been the subject of many studies in 10 years, these show that the drug is more effective when used alone. About 10.000 women’s study group has shown that the aromatic drug inhibitor slows the synthesis of the aromatase enzyme, a process that turns androgens into estrogens, which reduces the chances of recurrence of breast cancer 40 percent.
The reduction of estrogen also promotes athletes and bodybuilders, higher levels of estrogen decreases the ability to burn fat, use energy, and strengthen the muscles. For athletes and bodybuilders Arimidex is an important part of the steroid cycle because it reduces the effects of estrogen that increases the body’s water holding capacity, improves hormonal balance and resilience.
Arimidex is also used as a recommended treatment for growth irregularities associated with puberty and bone weakness caused by excessive levels of estrogen in the body.
Arimidex is also known as AI because it works as an inhibitor of aromatase type II. It disables the process of converting testosterone into estrogens by binding to molecules of aromatase enzyme making them inactive. This particular quality also prevents the spread and growth of breast cancer cells in women and plays a very important role in the therapeutic process of breast cancer that lowers the recurrence of risks. The aromatizing inhibitor is a highly effective anti-estrogen agent that plays an important role in steroid cycles for athletes and bodybuilders as it reduces exposure to gynecomastia caused by strong flavoring steroids. (If you use Arimidex there is no need to use Clomid, Nolvadex or Proviron as these products block estrogen receptors).
