Exemestane (Aromasin) is a drug of the aromatase inhibitor class used in bodybuilding to suppress the oestrogenic side effects of steroids. Manufactured by Alpha Pharma, it can effectively suppress the oestrogenic side effects of anabolic-androgenic steroids. Athletes often use Aromasin in bodybuilding after a cycle of steroids (PCT). The drug is available in tablet form with a concentration of the active ingredient Exemestane (Aromasin) 25mg (30 pills) per tablet. You can buy it online from our steroid shop in Australia.
Effects of Aromasin
As mentioned above, Aromasin can effectively block the aromatase enzyme responsible for the process of converting testosterone into female hormones. As a result, the concentration of oestrogen in the blood is reduced. This is why the drug is effective in the fight against breast cancer, as their development is directly linked to an increase in oestrogen levels. This same fact has also made Aromasin popular among athletes who actively use steroids.
By using Aromasin in bodybuilding on a steroid cycle, an athlete can eliminate the risks of oestrogen side effects. According to studies, Aromasin can reduce blood levels of oestradiol by up to 85 percent from the initial level. Some bodybuilders believe that this has a positive effect on recovery, as the rebound effect is minimized, and muscle tissue is protected from breakdown.

How to take Aromasin
The recommended doses range from 12.5 to 25 milligrams and should be used every other day. However, in most cases, athletes should only use 12.5 milligrams of exemestane up to three times per week.
If the maximum approved dose is used, the duration of exemestane should not be prolonged. You should only use 25 mg if you have an abnormal cholesterol balance and otherwise only use the minimum dose. Also, in professional sports exemestane is sometimes used one or two weeks before the start of a tournament to improve muscle definition.
