It shall be noticed, that in men, approximately 5% of testosterone undergoes 5α-reduction to form the more potent androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), also known as androstanolone. From another side approximately % of testosterone is converted into estradiol (the primary female sex hormone) by aromatase an enzyme expressed in the brain, liver, and adipose tissues. Hence, don`t forget to take precautions to avoid respective side effects. Thereof we recommend to perform blood works and take aromatase inhibitors on cycle (if required, anastrozole preferably) and SERMs (clomifene, toremifene) during post cycle therapy (PCT).
When you supplement with Dbol, and this goes for all anabolic steroids it is imperative you live a healthy lifestyle that promotes the continuation of good health. If your blood pressure and cholesterol levels are healthy prior to supplementation, and you shouldn't be supplementing otherwise, continue to live in a way that promotes the continuation of such healthy levels; in-fact, give it more attention. This should not be all that hard to do; after all, you're supplementing for the purpose of performance enhancement, and an unhealthy lifestyle does not promote this end. You bet, this means avoiding excess or heavy alcohol consumption, but it also needs to be avoided due to the C17-aa nature of this steroid as discussed above. Heavy alcohol consumption is extremely hard on the liver, and you don't need the added stress; more so, alcohol itself is the most anti-performance thing you could ever put into your body. While you should avoid excess alcohol, and all alcohol if you want to do things right, you are also encouraged to avoid all over the counter (OTC) medications when possible. Many OTC meds carry extremely strong hepatotoxic natures, some even more so than many anabolic steroids, and their use must be limited to only when truly needed.
If you are going to purchase milk thistle, a standardized milk thistle is recommended so you are sure to get the same amount of the active, beneficial ingredient in each dose. Milk thistle can also be combined with additional herbs such as artichoke (shown to support liver and gall bladder function through the removal of toxins and maintaining healthy bile production) and turmeric (which can help protect the liver from damaging free radicals and promote a health inflammatory response) to provide even more liver protection and support than standardized milk thistle alone.
