WHAT IS PCT?
PCT or “Post Cycle Therapy” is the theory that men need to alter their hormonal profile upon coming off of any hormonal cycle. Despite steroids being utilized by countless men since the 1940’s, the idea of a PCT is a somewhat new one as it was not until the mid to late 1990’s that it became a widely known/suggested idea.
WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR BODIES WHILE WE’RE ON CYCLE?
Understanding why we need PCT can only be accomplished once we understand what happens to our bodies during a run of hormonal compounds. Below outlines the 3 major pitfalls that users experience upon ceasing runs of hormones:
1. Testosterone is drastically reduced:
Our body naturally produces testosterone to fuel our many hormonal needs. When we supplement our diet with exogenous hormones like prohormones or steroids, our body sees
an influx of hormones and in an attempt to maintain homeostasis, reduces or completely stops its own testosterone production.
2. Estrogen is raised:
A cycle of hormones can consist of compounds that act as anabolics but also aromatize and convert into estrogen, compounds that do not aromatize or convert to estrogen, or a mix of the two. If using compounds that do aromatize into estrogen, estrogen levels will be SKY HIGH upon coming off your cycle as there are no anabolic hormones left in the body to
counteract them. On the opposite side of the spectrum, if running a cycle with compounds that do not aromatize we finish our cycle with extremely low levels of estrogen, yet quickly
enter a phase known as “estrogen rebound” where our body attempts to normalize estrogen levels by converting any/all hormones in the body into estrogen.
3. Libido is lowered:
What is it that makes a man a man? Testosterone. Since we know our testosterone levels are in the gutter upon coming off of any cycle, it’s pretty easy to see why our bodies would
not feel very manly at that time. With extremely low levels or even nonexistent levels of testosterone, the body has no way to fuel libido or sexual excitement, and we are left feeling like androgynous non-sexual beings.
HOW TO COMBAT THESE ISSUES?
Combating these 3 issues is the crux of why one is suggested to run a PCT after their cycle. A properly planned and formatted PCT tackles these hormonal imbalances through the following suggested courses of action:
1. Increase Testicular Function
Testosterone is produced by Leydig cells in the testes, so the best way to jump start production is to specifically target and activate these cells.
2. Activation of the Negative Feedback Loop
As men, our bodies produce testosterone directly. Women conversely produce estrogen directly. Since estrogen in small levels is necessary in men, our bodies create estrogen through a roundabout means of aromatization (where testosterone is converted into estrogen). A simple yet proven way to boost testosterone production is to drive estrogen levels down, thereby making the body attempt to produce more testosterone in an attempt to convert more of it to estrogen. This process is known as the “Negative Feedback Loop” as the lower we drive our estrogen, the higher our body will drive our testosterone in an attempt to normalize itself.
1. Inhibit Aromatase
As mentioned above, estrogen is created in men through the Aromatase enzyme. The most effective way at lowering estrogen is therefore to inhibit or disrupt this enzyme from being able to steal our precious testosterone. A class of drugs known as “Aromatase inhibitors” can accomplish this for us by reducing this enzymes ability to interact with testosterone. This means your body is incapable of converting testosterone into estrogen, which results in lower estrogen levels in very short time periods.
2. Convert Estradiol to Estrone
The male body needs SOME estrogen to be able to function properly. The two forms of estrogen we need to be conscious of are Estrone (e1) and Estradiol (e2). Estradiol in high levels can cause low libido, inhibit erectile function, fat gain, and muscle wasting. On the other end however, healthy Estrone levels can provide us with a healthy libido, enhanced sexual function, and a better overall quality of life.

Anabolic & PCT Blend
3b-hydroxy- androsta-1,4,6- triene-17- one This Aromatase inhibitor is coveted due to it’s incredibly high Ki value. Ki value refers to how strongly a compound can bind to the Aromatase enzyme and the stronger this value the more effective it is at eliminating estrogen, and boosting testosterone. This compound acts as a suicidal inhibitor of the Aromatase enzyme, which means once it is bound it will never detach, making it impossible for the body to convert your testosterone into estrogen, effectively destroying estrogen while boosting testosterone. 3b-hydroxy- androsta-4,6- diene-17- one Commonly referred to as the “ATD imposter” this compound takes ATD to the next level by increasing the half life (it lasts longer in the body), attaches to the Aromatase enzyme more effectively, and it’s metabolites can bind to the androgen receptor (AR) causing a sudden increase in size and strength.
Androsta-3,5- Diene-7,17- Dione Known as “Arimistane” this Aromatase inhibitor has shown to be more powerful than both Formestane and 6-OXO when tested for estrogen reducing capabilities. This compound on its own has been used for complete PCT recovery, so when combined with the other two AI’s in this formula, you’re guaranteed to maximize hormone levels for both recovery and muscle growth.
