Quick Take: I might be wrong when I say this but something’s telling me that I could be right too. Since you’re reading this, I’m taking a not-so-wild guess that you’re probably on some kind of steroid or prohormone. Am I right? No? Okay. My point is though, Nolvadren XT isn’t a T-booster made for the average gym rat. This product right here is made for hardcore, intense bodybuilders that are cycling off their steroidal addiction. Beware the ingredients.
- Made by MAN sports, Nolvadren XT is advertised to be “the perfect PCT”
- Being a PCT, it seems to be targeting serious bodybuilders cycling off steroids or prohormones
- Also boasts being 3-in-1 hormone modulator
- You can buy it online (including Amazon) and retail stores (doesn’t look like it’s in GNC though)
- Potent. Some might even consider it TOO potent
- Has WADA banned substances. You might want to steer away from this if you’re getting tested
Nolvadren XT’s 3-in-1 hormone modulating claim
- Advanced T boosting capabilities
- Hardcore Estrogen blocker
- Powerful Cortisol crusher
These are heavy claims to stand up to but looking at the ingredients, Nolvadren XT seems ready for the challenge
Nolvadren XT’s Ingredients
|Test-Estro Modulator – (Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione)||75 mg|
|Estro-Metabolize – (Diindolylmethane (DIM))||200 mg|
|7-Hydroxy 17b-Dihydro Dehydroepiandrosterone||25 mg|
|7-Hydroxy Dehydroepiandrosterone||25 mg|
Nolvadren XT’s T-Boosters
Test-Estro Modulator (Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione) – more commonly known as Arimistane. It’s a substitute for another potent but may potentially be banned 1,4,6-Androstatriene-3, 17-Dione.
Estro-Metabolize – (Diindolylmethane (DIM)) – I would generally advise against the use of DIM. It’s an anti-estrogen, aromatase inhibiting supplement that has shown more promise in female health more than it does men.
7-Hydroxy 17b-Dihydro Dehydroepiandrosterone – a metabolite of DHEA that aids in controlling cortisol levels
7-Hydroxy Dehydroepiandrosterone – Another metabolite of DHEA that serves the same function in controlling cortisol levels
More about Nolvadren XT’s Cort-Control Matrix
The two supplements under this matrix are both metabolites of DHEA that are potential substitutes for steroid replacement therapy. They work to prevent the enzyme cortisone from converting to cortisol (a stress hormone), effectively stopping cortisol at the root. In bodybuilding, cortisol makes it almost impossilbe to burn fat and it also puts the body in a state of catabolism where it “burns” muscle instead of building it. Though, be weary. DHEA is a banned substance.
Well, one good thing about Nolvadren XT is that all its main ingredients have the potential to boost T (especially if taken as a PCT). However, if you really need to see something here, then here they are: Rice Flour, Gelatin (Capsule, Citric Acid, Magnesium Stearate).
Nolvadren XT Directions
Take 2 capsules with your first meal – preferably in the morning. NEVER exceed 3 capsules per day.
Looking at the ingredients, I could easily tell you that these aren’t “natural” T-boosters. These are ingredients made in a laboratory – And as a believer in most things natural, I’m telling you that this looks more like a subtle steroid than a natural T-booster.
However, there is bright spot to this. Because the ingredients are lab enhanced products, they are also more potent than most natural T-boosters. In my personal opinion, Nolvadren XT has earned their bill as an “advanced hormone modulator”. Their choice of ingredients also backs their claim as a 3-in-1 hormone modulator too.
I do find it interesting that most of these ingredients have typically shown to benefit females after menopausal. Having said that, it is also worth noting that these ingredients have been finding fame among bodybuilders looking to cycle off their pro-hormone and steroid use. This is because “off” cycles have side effects that aren’t exactly what you call manly and proper. Estrogen and cortisol levels far outweigh the T levels required to maintain a masculine physique. In that sense, as a PCT, Nolvadren XT is there to do the job. I wouldn’t generally advise the use of these ingredients but if it fits your needs, feel free to use it.
Does it work?
If you’re a hardcore bodybuilder looking to maintain that hardcore bodybuilding physique, then yes, it does have the potential to work as a terrific PCT. Nolvadren XT has the ingredients to do so.
- Androsta-3, 5-Diene-7, 17-Dione is here for it’s aromatase inhibition which also maintains an optimal balance between testosterone and estrogen.
- Diindolylmethane for that added anti-estrogen property that serious bodybuilding requires.
- DHEA metabolites to increase levels of free T and enhanced T-synthesis
Estrogen control, cortisole blocking, and T-boosting – all the elements that make for an effective PCT. If you are, however, the boy-next-door that lifts to impress the chicks and look like Zach Efron, this isn’t the right supplement for you. Check out these other T-boosters that are safer and effective too.
- Maintenance – bodybuilders retain their monstrous physiques even when cycling off steroids.
- Complete PCT – Boosts/maintains T levels while controlling estrogen and cortisol.
- NO PROP BLENDS – With ingredients like these, man, was I happy to see those dosages.
- Hardcore – I mean, seriously hardcore. The potency in this is through the roof.
- Positive Reviews – At least from the reviews I’ve seen, Nolvadren XT’s users seem to like it.
- DHEA – If you wan’t to compete professionaly then stay away. This is a banned substance that’s going to get you kicked out if you tested positive.
- Lack of evidence – It’s worth noting that Arimistane isn’t backed by any NCBI studies. There’s also not a lot of research done to the rest of the ingredients on the list.
- Side Effects – As if the risk of liver damage from prohormones and steroids isn’t enough, this PCT poses its own risks too.
There’s a a reason why the label has a warning sign (I couldn’t find a picture though). It’s potentially dangerous but if you follow the suggested way to take it, you should be okay.
- abnormal hormone equilibrium
- the typical steroidal rage/irritability
- Estradiol (a kind of estrogen) deficieny that leads to bone problems
- Joint “dryness”
The Bottom Line
In conclusion, I stand by what I said that this isn’t the right T-booster for just the average gym rat. The formula of Nolvadren XT just doesn’t look like the right choice for those people.
Have you seen the biggest dude in your gym though? The guy that’s hogging all the plates and grunting every rep? Odds are that he’s a bodybuilder and with guns as big as he has and the way he looks like he’s about to burst in an angry rage, odds are that he’s on ‘roids too. Nolvadren XT is for guys like that because they’re the one’s who really NEED it.
