Great for reversing gynecomastia, reduce water retention, lower estrogen levels and helps with low testosterone (TRT)
Letrozole acts as an anti-estrogen in the Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) Dept and is pretty much one of the strongest available. In most cases it can be too much for just simple on-cycle use to prevent side effects and estrogen build up.
Its sole intended purpose was originally to combat breast cancer in post-menopausal women. But as it was found to be like another popular AI (Arimidex), many anabolic steroid users have welcomed it.
Letrozole would normally be used on-cycle to reduce estrogen side effects that have become unbearable, to try to reverse gynecomastia symptoms and help with low testosterone (Testosterone Replacement Therapy).
Letrozole carries the ability to increase natural testosterone through LH and FSH which stand for Luteinizing Hormone and Follicle Stimulating Hormone. Although this is the case exogenous testosterone is always better for this purpose.
Why Use Letrozole
Letrozole is an AI whose sole purpose is to block the aromatase enzyme which is responsible for estrogen production. By doing this it inhibits estrogen production in the body which lowers the levels. So, for a steroid user on cycle this is beneficial.
The Benefits of Letrozole
So just to re-cap then, the most pronounced benefits of
Reduce water retention
Help with low testosterone (TRT)
Reduce unbearable estrogen side effects
prevent side effects and estrogen build up
For the anabolic steroid user, use Letrozole in severe cases of Side effects or if you are experiencing gynecomastia symptoms.
Letrozole is so powerful that even a 2.5mg dosing is too high and would drain the user’s energy. The time for such a dosage would be when you start to see early gynecomastia symptoms. If this happens use Letrozole at 2.5mg per day for 7-14 days.
Once you see that the symptoms are starting to go then taper down to a more manageable dose for the rest of the cycle, such as 0.5mg EOD or even less. The only exception here is for a bodybuilder in his final 1-2 weeks. He would take 1mg per day for 1 or 2 weeks.
