Toremifene Citrate exerts its effects by antagonizing the estrogen receptor in some tissues, and agonizing it in others. In this way, certain estrogenic pathways are activated and others are blockaded. It seems to exert estrogenic effects on blood lipids, reducing LDL and total cholesterol, as well as estrogenic effects on bone, improving density. It would also appear to exert anti-estrogenic effects in breast tissue, displacing the traditional effects of estrogen, effectively helping prevent breast cancer in postmenopausal women.
Fareston Toremifene is a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator. Other drugs in this class are Clomid Clomiphene Citrate and Nolvadex Tamoxifen. SERMs act by being an estrogen agonist in certain tissues and an estrogen antagonist in others.
In men, at the hypothalamus and pituitary, estrogen acts in cooperation with the body’s negative feedback loop to send a signal to decrease the secretion of LH. When LH secretion is lowered, so are natural testosterone levels. SERMs, like Fareston, possibly act as an estrogen antagonist in the hypothalamus and pituitary, in order to increase testosterone production. Thus, although it hasn’t been studied to any great degree, it’s highly likely that Fareston is capable (or better) of increasing testosterone in the same way that Nolvadex Tamoxifen it, as it’s androgenicity:estrogenicity ratio is 5x that of Nolvadex However, in terms of improving bone mineral density, Fareston is roughly equal to Nolvadex. Fareston Toremifene, like other SERMS, would appear to have very beneficial effects on blood lipid levels and other health markers.
Although some of the research looks promising, and it may be the case that Fareston can have potential to elevate testosterone levels higher than other SERMs being currently used by bodybuilders and athletes, the jury is still out on that.
There simply have not been enough people using Fareston Toremifene for long enough to know where its place in the steroid using milieu will eventually be. For now, it can be considered to have potential, but nothing more. I have high hopes for this drug to live up to it’s potential, but only time will tell.
If you’re considering adding it into a cycle, just be sure to keep other ancillaries on hand, just in case.
