All anabolic steroids have a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol. The relative impact of an anabolic/androgenic steroid on serum lipids is dependant on the dose, route of administration (oral vs. injectable) type of steroid (aromatizable or non-aromatizable) and level of resistance to hepatic metabolism. With regards to nandrolone at a dose of 600mg per week over 10 weeks demonstrated 26% reduction in HDL cholesterol levels. This suppression is slightly greater than an equal dose of testosterone over an equal period. In other words it shows a slightly more negative impact on HDL/LDL ratio with nandrolone than with testosterone cypionate. It’s always recommended to accompany the use of this product with a low saturated fat diet and a cardiovascular exercise program.
Now that you understand the numerous benefits of Tren, it’s important to understand how to maintain those benefits and results even after your cycle has ended. All anabolic steroids, including Trenbolone, throw off your body’s natural hormone balance. After your cycle, this can wreak havoc on your body and counteract any Tren benefits you achieved. Post-cycle therapy is important for maintaining gains and preventing muscle loss because it helps to kickstart testosterone production and limit estrogenic activity at the same time. Taking a SERM like Clomid or Nolvadex in a tapering dose for four to six weeks can balance your hormones and help you maintain your results.
