    PCT for 3AD


    In the FAQ you recommend aPCT for PCT following 3AD. Can I take this to mean that a serm is not required for a 3AD cycle? If so you could presumably use something like Post Cycle Support?

    You are correct in assuming that a SERM is not necessary. aPCT is an AI and will be more than enough to cover you after your cycle. As long as you run it within the recommended dosing and timeframe parameters, 3-AD's PCT is very easy OTC!!

    I don't think that cycle support would quite cover things, though. There's a lot in there for cleansing and detox, but not much that I see at a glance for actual hormonal support. Though the shutdown that is associated with 3-AD is light if any at all, you'll still need a bit of something to kick-start the system again when you finish.

    Not saying I'd recommend it, but I think he was talking about POST cycle support, which is their PCT product. Has resveratol and icariin in it.

    Cycle support is their detox product, for methyls. It's a support supplement, not a therapy supplement. Perhaps the names get confusing? Something with resv and ic may be pretty good, though. It'll be more expensive than aPCT, so why bother?

    Please, please read the post. I know what Cycle Support is, but he was talking about something different.

    They also have a product called post cycle support, post cycle support, post cycle support. It is a PCT product.

    I am talking about POST cycle support, NOT cycle support.

    Ok, I've re-re-re-read it and looked up AI's Post Cycle Support. Ingredients would be: Trans-Resveratrol, Quercetin, Epimedium, Piperidine. Total 120 caps for $41.99.

    AX's aPCT contains: 6bromo, cordyceps, L-Hystidine HCL and Grape Seed Extract. Total 90 caps for $28.95

    6-bromo being a more potent AI, the other ingredients there may be comparable compared to the ultimate goal of the PCT product. What the bigger difference, and one that may be more important during this time of year with budgets and whatnot, is the price. Why pay $20 more for something if you don't need to? That's about half way to another bottle of 3-AD!

    Yes, you could use AI's PCS if you had it. But if you are shopping and have not bought it yet, why now save a bit and go with AX's?

    I do. You don't want to do post cycle therapy until post (after) your cycle. Doing it while on cycle would water down gains and you'd be pretty much cheating yourself out of time, money, and effort invested.

    Do the 3-AD first. Then on the day after you finish it, begin aPCT. No sooner.

    There's really little value in taking an AI while taking a non-aromatizable prohormone or steroid.

    I see the main ingredient of 3 AD is Androsterone However Enzymatic conversion of Androsterone results in the target hormone Stanolone which is a synthetic version of Dihydrotestosterone: DHT . As DHT can be responsible for male pattern baldness , are you inviting trouble by taking this supplement?

    As with any prohormone, the concern of hairloss exists.

    Androsterone converts to androstandiol in the liver at a pretty decent efficiency in the liver. To convert androstandiol to androstanolone, interaction with 3-HSD enzymes in necessary. What's convient about this is the fact that these enzymes are found primarily in the muscle tissue, so the androgen converts to an active one and almost immediately bind to the androgen receptor.

    So are you saying hairloss cannot be ruled out Also on a scale of 1-10 (1 least 10 most ) how severe is the potential for hair loss with this compound?

    It's not going to be that high.

    Stanolone formed from androsterone is more likely to bind to the AR's in muscle tissue and not the scalp.

    I'd say it is one of the least harsh PH's on the market for hair loss. You can't completely rule it out but it is on par with BOLD and H-drol. If you already have MPB, then you should use precautions.

    I know this is an old thread but my question basically deals w/ the same issue and I didn't want to make a new thread. Would Inhibit-e work for 3-AD PCT? Reason I'm asking is because I've already got the Inhibit-e sitting here and I'm being cheap.

    Also, if I decide to go the aPCT route, would I need a test booster such as Blue-Up or Activate Xtreme?

    Thanks

    Side effects with 3-AD are very mild when compared to something like Mdrol. No back pumps. Minimal elevation of liver enzymes. Minimal lethargy.
