AI blocks the aromatization process right? This means that it makes sense to use it while on cycle. No sense in taking a SERM (Nolvadex, Clomid…) and an AI together since basically the AI will cancel the effect of the said SERM, since a SERM binds to receptors as a weak estrogen, hence preventing the stronger aromatizing estrogens to bind instead (nipple receptors for example). In other parts of the body SERMS exert a more predominant estrogenic influence tough. Granted in laymen’s terms an AI (Arimidex, Letrozole and the like), blocks estrogen conversion in the first place, this means estrogen manifestations-good (lubricated joints) or bad (Mood swings, Female fat pattern deposit, Gynocomastia etc)-will be halted depending on the dose of AI taken. Correct me if I’m wrong.
Yes (except for the technicality of SERMS not being a “weak estrogen” in tissues such as breast, but rather an antagonist there.)
Now I had read Bill R. say in another thread that 500mg of Test per week will not require AI (eg: Arimidex) use. This made me assume that it had something to do with the type of ester used. Hmm assuption is the mother of all fuck ups they say…ok.
And I’d even made a point of saying something like, as the person asking the question, had used a word such as required:
No, it isn’t “required” (according to the usual meaning of the word) with that dosage and using a SERM. But it is’s a good thing.
I was trying to stress that the word required means, you HAVE to do it, and I was saying only that one does not HAVE to do it, though it is preferable.
I figured I had to go to such lengths as if I did not, many would take my saying something is not required to mean there is no point in doing it – even though those are two different things.
Similarly to example for where I had written once, regarding the theory that there is something magic compared to other anabolic steroids about trenbolone which the myth attributed to the acetate ester, that TA does not have “special fat burning properties.” With plenty of context making clear that the point was not that it had none but rather that other androgens also can do the same and the particular ester is not important. But somehow you will find countless web pages attacking me for being wrong in, supposedly, claiming that trenbolone doesn’t burn fat. Even when they bother to use the quote! It’s almost incredible how statements get turned into things they just are not. Anyway, that sort of thing is why I tried to be so clear that I was using the word by what it actually means, not any extrapolation of it to something further.
There was nothing of any kind about any ester. Irrelevant to aromatization.
- Technicality corrected. mind note taken.
2-Hmm ok, basically having an AI is ‘good to have’ but not ‘essential’ to some since every one reacts differently in terms of aromatization/mg of test injected. Roger that.
- Thanks a lot for clearing things up for me, as always you are very helpful. Thanks again.
