Arimidex (anastrozole) preventing bodybuilders' testosterone from aromatizing into estrogen and increasing 'free' testosterone
Arimidex (anastrozole) is one of several drugs used to combat estrogen related problems in both men and women. Estrogen reduction can be accomplished in several ways – by blocking it, by destroying it, by occupying existing estrogen receptors, by lowering sex hormone binding globulin which in turn prevents estrogen from forming, or, as is the case with Anastrozole, by preventing excess testosterone from aromatizing into estrogen in the first place. Which method of estrogen reduction is preferable is dependant on several factors but for most bodybuilders, an anti aromatase is often the best choice and in this regard, Anastrozole works very well. It also has the additional, unique advantage of increasing “Free” testosterone.
