Aromatase inhibitor. It works by blocking the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for the production of estrogen. For men taking steroids, Anastrozole is of great interest. Until today, drugs like Tamoximed/Provimed were considered the main tools in the fight against excess estrogen in the body. But it turned out that Anastrozole is more effective. Studies show that 1 tablet per day is enough to achieve remarkable results. If it is used simultaneously with such potent androgens that are easily aromatized, such as Methandienone or testosterone, gynecomastia and fluid retention can easily be avoided. In addition, the quality of muscle mass becomes much better, and the appearance is more attractive (muscles become more pronounced and firm, without excess fluid).

However, there are some features of taking substances that slow down the process of aromatization, namely during long-term steroid therapy. This aromatization retarder significantly reduces estrogenic side effects, but also blocks the positive effect of estrogen, namely the effect of estrogens on cholesterol levels. Research in this area suggests that when aromatization retardants are used in combination with steroids such as testosterone, suppression of HDL ("good") cholesterol becomes apparent. The action of Tamoxfen, a "rival" in the fight against the action of estrogens, does not have an anti-estrogenic effect on cholesterol levels.Therefore, this drug is better suited for maintaining estrogen levels in the body and may be recommended for use in people with cardiovascular disease.

Anastrozole has another significant drawback – this is a high price. Obviously, the price of aids can be much higher than the cost of the steroids themselves, which is not very welcome by amateur athletes. Anastrozole can reduce the side effects of taking strong androgens better than Tamoxifen or Provimed, as it alleviates the condition during "heavy" cycles.
