People who use steroids use PCT. It enhances their performance. This therapy helps in reducing the negative health effects that may be caused due to consumption of steroids
PCT is a protocol that is followed after completing the cycle of Performance Enhancing Drugs ( PED) such as anabolic steroids and prohormones.
When the user starts using PEDs, there is increased muscle growth. Also, it accelerates the recovery but at the same time, they begin to suppress your body’s testosterone levels ( which means the natural’ production of hormones by the body stops). This is because the body starts getting testosterone from the PEDs. Technically a one can say that synthetic hormones replace natural hormones.
But once the PED cycle is completed, your body won’t be getting the supply of hormones through PED. That is when your own body should start producing the hormones again, which is possible with the help of PCT.
Proper PCT will help your body produce testosterone again in a few week’s time. It will even prevent any adverse effects on the body from happening. The faster one starts producing and recovering tge natural growth of hormones better it is because it will even help in retaining the progress gained from the consumption of PEDs.
If one doesn’t opt for PCT then the body will have to get into the process of reproducing the hormones on its own and this process may take months or even more. And till the testosterone levels get normal one would undergo mood swings, uneasiness, fatigue, decreased muscle mass, increased fat mass, and many other aide effects. Also during this process, one would lose the benefits gained from PED’s consumption. All this would even result in demotivation. Hence it is always advisable to undergo PCT post PED cycle.
