Chemical Name: (Z)-2-[4-(1,2-Diphenyl-1-butenyl)phenoxyl]-N,N-dimethyl-ethanamine-citrate;
Molecular Formula: C26H29NO.C6H8O7
Molecular weight: 563.64
Character: White crystalline powder.
Usage: For the treatment of advanced, recurrent breast cancer and ovarian cancer and other illnesses. Used as an antineoplastic raw materials.
Biological Activity: Estrogen receptor antagonist/partial agonist. Selective and potent inhibitor of mammalian sterol isomerase. Neuroprotective in female rats in vivo . Also high affinity agonist
at the membrane estrogen receptor GPR30.
Nolvadex (tamoxifen citrate) is very comparable to Clomid, behaves in the same manner in all tissues, and is a mixed estrogen agonist/antagonist of the same type as Clomid. The two molecules are
also very similar in structure.
It is not correct that Nolvadex reduces levels of estrogen: rather, it blocks estrogen from estrogen receptors and, in those tissues where it is an antagonist, causes the receptor to do nothing.
The claim that Nolvadex reduces gains should not be taken too seriously. The fact is that any number of bodybuilders have made excellent gains while using Nolvadex. The belief that it reduces gains
seems to stem from the fact that the scientific literature reports a slight reduction in IGF-1 (individuals using anabolic steroids were not studied though) from use of Nolvadex
