  • Importance of Cycle Support

    Planning on running a Pro-Hormone cycle? Make sure to give this article a good read before you start. I would call on cycle support the 2nd most important part of any pro-hormone cycle (PCT being the 1st) as it will help to keep your body healthy, your organs in check and your hormones, more or less, stable.

    What is cycle support?

    It’s not the name of a product, rather, it’s a bunch of different products that you take alongside your pro-hormone to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Just like your pro-hormones, it should be taken every single day until the end of your cycle. There are a few things that you will need.

    Liver support

    You really only need liver support if you are running methylated pro-hormones such as helladrol, epi-strong, etc, but it is always a good idea to run it along any pro-hormone just in case. If you’re not sure if the hormone you are about to run is methylated or not, google it, or better yet, ask on the muscle-research forums and you will get all the answers you need.

    There are a couple products that you can use, such as, Forged liver support, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), milk thistle, etc.

    However, the best option is definitely TUDCA as it was created with steroid/hormone use in mind. You can’t go wrong with either but if you are running two or more pro-hormones or a strong methylated pro-hormone, I would suggest using TUDCA. For all others, you can get away with using something like Forged liver support.

    Test base

    A test base is important because the pro-hormones are likely to shut down the production of your natural testosterone. As we all know testosterone is important to making good gains, fat loss, and for a healthy libido. It is important that during your cycle, your body has a good steady source of testosterone. This is where products like T-base or Dermacrine come in.

    They are topical DHEA based creams (along with other ingredients) that help to keep your testosterone levels stable during your cycle and help to prevent shutdown.

    I would recommend T-base as it has a good healthy dose of each ingredient and has added 1-DHEA, which would only add to any muscle building or fat-loss cycle.

    Anti-Estrogen

    Not all pro-hormones aromatize so this one is not always necessary, however, everyone reacts differently so it is always a good idea to have an anti-estrogen on hand. By far the best option I can recommend for any PH cycle is, Forma Stanzol. It lowers estrogen, but does not completely eliminate it (some estrogen is essential for the body). If you are prone to estrogen related side effects, such as gyno, always keep this on hand. I would recommend running forma at 2 pumps daily for the duration of your cycle through to your PCT.


    Cholesterol/Lipid Support

    It is a well-known fact that pro-hormones have a negative effect on cholesterol levels. The severity of course depends on the type and dosage of the pro-hormone but they all to some extent have an impact. You should know by now how important it is for your internal organs that your cholesterol levels are in balance. To ensure a healthy balance, use ingredients like Red Yeast Rice and Policosanol. You could also choose to use products such as Lipid Stabil or Lipidrol that has all these ingredients and more to ensure good healthy lipid levels. Follow the instructions on the supplement label.

    Another great natural option here is Omega 3s, such as fish oil or flax seed oil.

    Others

    These next few are not as important as the ones mentioned above but can help counter some of the smaller side effects of a pro-hormone cycle.

    Taurine/Potassium/Magnesium - If you find yourself constantly having back pumps or cramps at random, first, make sure you are drinking enough water and then consider supplementing with Taurine, Potassium and Magnesium.

    Joint Support - Some users of pro-hormones have reported dry joints or joint pain. To combat this, use a good joint support product, such as, Xtreme joint support along with some fish oil.

    Blood Pressure Support - Although its normal for blood pressure to go up on cycle, if you are worried, you should consider using something like CoQ10 on cycle. It is known to help lower blood pressure and is also a very good anti-oxidant.
