Yes it does: it acts as an anti-estrogen in the pituitary, thus increasing lh - leutenizing hormone - and FSH - follicle stimulating hormone - , which results in an increase in testosterone. 20mgs of Nolvadex will raise your testosterone levels about 150%
(6)...Nolvadex actually has quite a few applications for the steroid using athlete. First and foremost, itís most common use is for the prevention of gynocomastia. Nolvadex does this by actually competing for the receptor site in breast tissue, and binding to it. Thus, we can safely say that the effect of tamoxifen is through estrogen receptor blockade of breast tissue (7).
Estrogen is also important for a properly functioning immune system, and not only that, but your lipid profile (both HDL and LDL) should also show marked improvement with administration of tamoxifen (34).
Nolvadex also has some important features for the steroid using athlete. In hypogonadic and infertile men given nolvadex, increases in the serum levels of lh - leutenizing hormone - , FSH - follicle stimulating hormone - , and most importantly, testosterone
were all observed (35)It can also block a bit of estrogen in the pituitary, which is a great benefit when used with HCG - human chorionic gonadotropin - (more on that later) (36)(37). The increase in testosterone Nolvadex can give someone with a dysfunctional is basically that 20mgs of Nolvadex will raise your testosterone levels about 150%
