What is HCG used for?
- It is used to improve results when using anabolic-androgenic steroids.
- It is used to counteract the negative effects of anabolic steroids.
- It is used by the bodybuilders to restore testicular function.
In the field of bodybuilding hCG Observations have shown that anabolic steroids are used both intermittently and after discontinuation.
These two application schemes are related to the fact that prolonged use of anabolic steroids not only suppresses the body's own release of the LH hormone and thus also the natural testosterone production, but also leads to a shrinkage of the testicles known as atrophy, which leads to a desensitization of the Leyding Cells opposite to the testosterone release stimulating effect of the LH hormone. Studies show that even after using testosterone for more than 20 weeks, the body releases normal amounts of the LH hormone again within a short time, but the testes take up to 10 weeks to react properly to this hormone again.
A phased use of the hormone during the steroid cure should counteract this atrophy and desensitization of the testicles from the outset and, according to anecdotal reports from users, often results in an additional boost in strength and Mass build-up.
The use of hCG during the withdrawal phase is intended to flood the testes with large amounts of "artificial LH hormone", which means that the testes are sensitized to stimulation of testosterone production by the body's own LH hormone and thus react more quickly to the body's own LH hormone .
