I've been looking into running the topicalfrom CEL as a stand alone, and it looks really promising. These are my goals that got me interested in formestane: (If you know of a diff product, I'd be happy to hear what may fit these goals.)
Goals: want muscles to harden up/skin tighten up, get more vascular, increase test, and have some nice workouts in the gym.
Additionally, I don't want to have to worry much about some crazy rebound effect (I will be tapering off though if necessary), loss of libido, or any kind of shutdown.
I have a few questions I'm hoping I can get help with. I've read the formestane FAQ and noticed this:
" Formestane is a super-potent AI and ph of hydroxy-test (which is a weak steroid) "
" 4-Hydroxy Test (4-OHT) is only 65% as anabolic as Testosterone. This will cause some HPTA shutdown, but some believe it to be mild enough for use in Post Cycle Therapy "
--Is formestane a PH or natural?
--So it will cause some shutdown? Is some kind of PCT therapy necessary to get this back to normal (even though ppl use this as PCT? I guess b/c it's so mild?) What effects can be expected from this mild shut down? Will levels return to normal naturally?
--Will I suffer from rebound if I taper down?
--Is estrogen suppression continued after running the product?
--Is the topical form systemic? Or is it more prone to do its thing on the areas you rub it in?
--how severe is photo sensitivity with the topical form?
Thanks for any help! I hear this stuff works WELL. I just want to be sure it's the right product for my goals and how I train.
