Exemestane commonly referred to as Aromasin, is a member of the drug class and subcategory known as aromatase inhibitors.
Aromatase inhibitors are substances that reduce the levels of oestradiol by stopping the production of oestrogen. They do this by interacting with and inhibiting the aromatase enzyme, which is the enzyme responsible for the conversion of androgens into oestrogens (also known as the aromatization process). Aromasin will stop the binding by 95% and reduce oestrogen levels by 85%. The aromatase enzyme to which it is bound is said to be permanently disabled and inhibited, rendering the enzyme permanently inactive. As a result, exemestane won’t cause an oestrogen rebound after use.
Properties and effects of Xtane
Exemestane is a drug that athletes use to prevent the oestrogenic side effects of steroid use. These effects typically show up as gynecomastia, water retention, and weight gain. Aromatase inhibitors can sometimes reduce body fat and enhance the appearance of muscles.
However, there is a drawback to using aromatase inhibitors. Exemestane perfectly blocks oestrogenic side effects, but it also interferes with oestrogen’s beneficial effects and lowers good cholesterol. This limits the value of its use to times when a powerful AI is necessary. The removal of these unwelcome high levels of oestrogen from the body will be made possible by this powerful AI, but short cycles are most recommended because prolonged use of this substance can reduce the levels to almost zero, which is not good for building muscle mass.
Aromasin application and dosage
Exemestane tablets contain 25mg of the medication, which is the recommended dosage. According to research, doses as low as 25 mg per day are effective. Despite the claims of many bodybuilders and steroid users, Arimidex is more widely used than Aromasin because it was created and released first. As a result, Aromasin is frequently disregarded by many. This is primarily because Aromasin is more “user-friendly” and does not eliminate all of the circulating oestrogens within a cycle, even though it may not be able to treat severe cases.
The average dosage for treating gynecomastia and maintaining oestrogen control while on an anabolic steroid cycle ranges between 12.5 and 25mg per day for a week. Some users have even chosen to take 12.5 mg every other day, but this is greatly influenced by the type of aromatising anabolic steroid being used and the dosage within the cycle.
Side effects from Exemestane pills
There is always a chance of experiencing side effects when taking medication. Here are some related and well-known adverse effects:
- Reduced sexual arousal
- Joint and muscle pain
- Intestinal discomfort
- Hot flushes
- Feeling down
The majority of reports of these side effects occur with overdoses or prolonged use periods. No side effects should materialise if you adhere to the suggested usage guidelines and refrain from abusing this substance.
Combination with AAS
Aromasin will significantly raise endogenous natural testosterone levels in males for PCT by 60%, especially after just 10 days. The ideal Aromasin dosage for this purpose is 25mg per day for no longer than 2 weeks. Nolvadex is typically taken concurrently with Aromasin for 4 weeks at a dosage of 20–40 mg. Aromasin has a half-life of approximately twenty-seven hours. It is necessary to take steroids for a full seven days for the body to reach peak levels of testosterone. Steroids are better absorbed when taken with food.
Reviews of Natco Pharma’s Xtane
Many bodybuilders and steroid users claim in reviews for Natco Pharma’s Xtane that Aromasin (exemestane) is much more effective than Arimidex, but since Arimidex was created and released first, it is more well-known than Aromasin, which is frequently disregarded by many.
