What about the most importan thing. Your heart.

    bro, i agree. Let me ask you. I am planning on taking winny only for 6 weeks 30mg/day then clomid for a couple of weeks. (I'm new at this) I have perfect cholestoral right now. (174). Do you think this winny only cycle will f up my ldl / hdl levels too much? and if so how long does it usually last before they are back to normal?

    thanx for the help

    The problem with cholesterol meds during a cycle is hepato-toxic side effects. If you plan on using oral steroids, which we know alter liver profiles, then I would definately suggest to stay away from most cholesterol meds, which also have propensity for liver damage.

    If one is not using a 17-AA steroid in a cycle, then I would suggest niacin with a statin, such as lovastatin or simvistatin. This combo has shown some impressive results in increasing HDL and lowering LDL.

    P.S. Not many ever mention that bodybuilders should be taking folic acid (600-1,000mcg/day), to lower homocysteine levels, which is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Homocysteine levels increase as protein intake increases, and B6 and folate have been shown to prevent its increase.

    Cock,

    Good to see ya back, and your on the ball with the B-6...I use it quite alot with cycles, but to much could result in it becoming toxic if I'm not mistaken.

    The Niacin is very good, I love the flush it gives me...nice for veins if the BF% is low...heh heh heh

    No I dont think you will have any problems with cholesterol if just using winny or clomid. Just as long as you eat a low fat, low cholesterol diet as you should if your using winny because it is used in a cutting cycle
