Estrogen, which is the main enemy of breast cancer patients, is curbed through SERM and AI. Master also shares these characteristics and is capable of preventing estrogen buildup in the body. As DHT derivative, it does not allow aromatization and displays strong anti-aromatase properties. For this reason, Masteron has been used in combination with other drugs to treat breast cancer patients. The role of Masteron then was to block the amount of estrogens in the body while other drugs, such as Tamoxifen-citrate were used to block the binding of estrogen at the breast receptors. Today, many other more powerful aromatase inhibitors have replaced this breast cancer treatment to achieve even greater success in the fight against breast cancer.
Although the primary side effects of Masteron revolve around genetic response, this hormone can potentially be very damaging to cholesterol more so than many injectable anabolic steroids. However, it should not have as strong of an effect as most oral steroids. Masteron can significantly increase LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) as well as significantly reduce HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol). If you suffer from high cholesterol you should not supplement with Masteron. If you are healthy enough for use, you should do all you can to promote the continuation of healthy levels. This means incorporating plenty of cardiovascular training into your routine, limiting saturated fats and simple sugars, as well as consuming plenty of omega fatty acids. Daily fish oil supplementation is highly recommended as is a cholesterol antioxidant supplement.
