Sss23 if you already tried letrone, how was your success with it?
People have logged and reviewed BLR on here a bunch and they seem to be well received. Why not grab an arimistane oral and combine it with a td like exotherm, should dry you out extremely. Jebrook from my experience that exotherm def amps up the heat which is a plus for shredding down.

For me I don't think anything will top BLR's old formeron. That stuff was insane. That damn ban....

Inhibit E is another solid option. Fat loss (to lower E conversion) and E lowering mechanisms make it one of the top choices around

RIP Formeron...long live Exotherm! Fortunately I still have Form in my stash! Honestly I like Exo almost as much. It's not as strong or anabolic but the fat burning and energy boosting capabilities are top notch.
IronAddiction the possibilities of combining an Arimistane product like Erosion with Exotherm are interesting. Increased estrogen control x 3 AI's, two fat burners, plus cortisol reduction? That is interesting...hmmm.

You talking about Letrone? If so I believe 4 caps is the highest without killing their joints if I recall. One of the betas was on a heavy test/deca cycle and went as high as 5 I think but went back down to four I like it for on cycle with moderate to heavy compounds but it's anabolic benefits make a strong case for PCT or even solo.

Definitely , letrone ...thinking of tossing it in my pct .... unless the e stays low enough. I agree the research is there. Id probably run at 4 caps just to see how it goes maybe week 2 pct thru week 4 . I front loaded clom and now iam feeling good day 3 pct off a long 8 month trip maybe 2 2 week breaks. Looking forward to seeing how this ends .

You said you blow up like a puffer fish right? You said you were gonna cut after your cycle. Why not do what Iron and I talked about and combine Exo and Erosion. Your cortisol and E Levels gotta be all out of whack after that long. The fat burners would reveal the muscle you've put on under the bloat. Think about it.

For as much as I loved Formeron, I think Letrone is much better. I have a stash of Form that I haven't touched because Letrone is just better.

Definitely a great option. Saw better results off inhibit e than other similar products I've tried. The OG Erase was one of my favorites as well.

Give Exotherm a try. Similar carrier to Formeron just slightly improved. Its got 2 AIs (Atractylodes and Chrysin) in it plus 2 fat burners = stearoyl vanillylamide and Cirsium OG.
At 3 pumps this stuff is amazing. For most its just under the dose that causes severe joint pain with a strong dose of the fat burners. Perfect.
Some do have joint issues and require dose adjustment but most dont.

I think youll be impressed.
As an AI its very good. For sure the best natural AI I have ever come across.
In addition it increases HGH and Ghrelin levels (makes me SUPER hungry) plus can increase IGF-1, T3,T4, and cAMP.
Great stuff.

ATD is an antiandrogen. It blocks testosterone and other androgens from binding to the androgen receptor. So...anything that prevents androgens from binding to the receptor is BAD news in my book.

Horm Behav. 1989 Mar;23(1):10-26.
Effects of ATD on male sexual behavior and androgen receptor binding: a reexamination of the aromatization hypothesis.

Kaplan ME, McGinnis MY.

Department of Anatomy, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, CUNY, New York 10029.
Abstract

The aromatization hypothesis asserts that testosterone (T) must be aromatized to estradiol (E2) to activate copulatory behavior in the male rat. In support of this hypothesis, the aromatization inhibitor, ATD, has been found to suppress male sexual behavior in T-treated rats. In our experiment, we first replicated this finding by peripherally injecting ATD (15 mg/day) or propylene glycol into T-treated (two 10-mm Silastic capsules) or control castrated male rats. In a second experiment, we bilaterally implanted either ATD-filled or blank cannulae into the medial preoptic area (MPOA) of either T-treated or control castrated male rats. With this more local distribution of ATD, a lesser decline in sexual behavior was found, suggesting that other brain areas are involved in the neurohormonal activation of copulatory behavior in the male rat. To determine whether in vivo ATD interacts with androgen or estrogen receptors, we conducted cell nuclear androgen and estrogen receptor binding assays of hypothalamus, preoptic area, amygdala, and septum following treatment with the combinations of systemic T alone. ATD plus T, ATD alone, and blank control. In all four brain areas binding of T to androgen receptors was significantly decreased in the presence of ATD, suggesting that ATD may act both as an androgen receptor blocker and as an aromatization inhibitor. Competitive binding studies indicated that ATD competes in vitro for cytosol androgen receptors, thus substantiating the in vivo antiandrogenic effects of ATD. Cell nuclear estrogen receptor binding was not significantly increased by exposure to T in the physiological range. No agonistic properties of ATD were observed either behaviorally or biochemically. Thus, an alternative explanation for the inhibitory effects of ATD on male sexual behavior is that ATD prevents T from binding to androgen receptors.

6oxo isnt terrible but its only available in the UK and its probably expensive.
I still think Letrone or Exotherm for the win.

But what do you pay in the UK for 6-oxo isnt it extremely expensive ?
Prices I found in UK: 6-oxo 60x25mg about 46 usd, 6-bromo 100x50mg about 45 usd, ATD 100x25mg about 35-40 usd, Formestane TD about 62 usd.

Whats the highest dose anyone has ever run letro successfully? And would you find it more beneficial to run letro during cycle or post cycle ?
I ran 3 caps/day for a while just taking it with some natty test boosters and it didn't crush my Estro too bad.

Not sure there was a big difference between 2 and 3 caps so I ended up kicking it back down to 2 after a while. Seemed to dry me up a bit and I leaned up a tad in my recomp.

Total time on Letrone was like 8 weeks or so

During testing and logs a few guys went up to 4-5 caps. Most couldnt tolerate the joint issues that showed after 2-3 caps. Some experience it at 1.
The guys who went up above 2 were all on super high doses of AAS. Like one was running cyp, suspension, dbol, deca.
I wouldnt suggest more than 2 caps without something else on board that raises estrogen.
Could combine it with Viron and run a higher dose but I dont think more than 2 is needed.

Would you guys suggest to a newbie a solo run of Arimistane for recomping? I was considering to try it it before going with a PH.
What are your thoughts on this?
Do i run it as recommended on the bottle?

Check out Alphamax, has a full dose of Arimistane but also contains a full 50mg 95% Forskolin which clinically proven to increase Lean Body Mass while decreasing fat mass, perfect for recomping!

I would suggest Letrone. Its an exceptionally strong AI but also may increase HGH, IGF-1 t3,t4 cAMP and Ghrelin. Because of the ghrelin increase many users notice increased hunger. This makes it great for lean gains. All the benefits of the AI plus significant anabolic potential and increased metabolism.

This is my first time looking at letrone, but I'm a little shocked no one has pointed this out yet...


"The results indicated that atractylenolide I (1),
atractylenolide II (2) and atractylenolide III (3) had inhibition ratios of 94.56 ± 0.70%,
90.93 ± 1.41% and 86.31 ± 8.46%, respectively, at a concentration of 10 μM. "

So you need a concentration of 10 uM to get this strong AI effect. The writeup lists isolated absorption data, but does not speak to subsequent metabolism. Thankfully, there is a paper showing what happens to the compound after it is administered:

Pharmacokinetic profile of phytoconstituent(s) isolated from medicinal plants?A comprehensive review

Cmax is the MAXIMUM concentration achieved after dosing. The dose was 20g/kg in rats, equivalent to 260 grams in a 180 lb person.

The Cmax at this dose was 7.99 ug/L, which means the molar concentration was 0.035 uM. This concentration is 300 times less than the concentration shown to have AI effects (and keep in mind, 0.035 uM is the MAXIMUM concentration). Assuming linear pharmacokinetics, you would need:

300 (the factor by which the concentration is too low) x 260g (the dose administered to get this concentration).

This would mean that to get the results advertised in this thread/the product writeup, you would need to take 78,000 grams of pure atractylenolide. For most people, that would mean eating your entire body weight in pure compound. Take into account that letrone is an extract and not the pure compound, and you're probably looking at 100kg+ of this compound in one sitting.

The study also showed a halflife of 2 hours. This cannot even be remotely compared to aromasin (bioactive life 72 hours), arimidex (48-72 hours), etc...

1 MILLIGRAM of arimidex every 3 days would have a similar effect to eating 100,000 grams of letrone's active compound every 2 hours.

To even say that letrone can help control estrogen in people taking aromatizing compounds is frankly very irresponsible. We're talking about people here, not just numbers on a sales sheet.
