SERMs: An Overview Of Our Products!
What Is A SERM?
SERMs, also known as Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators, are a class of drugs that exert antagonistic (and sometimes agonistic) actions on the estrogen receptor.
Therefore, they are primarily used for the treatment of estrogen-related diseases such as osteoporosis, infertility, and breast cancer in women.
Some people refer to SERMs as designer estrogen because they can offer many of estrogen’s benefits without some of its other effects.
In other words, unlike estrogens that act as estrogen receptor agonists, SERMs have the ability to act selectively as agonists or antagonists depending on a target gene or tissue.
For example, they can help to prevent bone loss without stimulating the endometrial lining of the uterus.
So Why Could A Serm Be Useful For Men?
SERMs can stimulate endogenous Testosterone production in males by blocking the hypothalamic estrogen receptor.
This action tricks the brain into thinking that estrogen levels are low. Estrogen is primarily acquired through the aromatization of testosterone so the hypothalamus will stimulate the release of LH and FSH.
In the end, that will boost testosterone levels.
So it might be very useful to have it when you research with compounds that might suppress your own endogenous testosterone levels
SERMs may also be beneficial to treat male infertility. Because of the boost in LH and FSH, sperm count will improve as well.
So that is an extra positive effect it might do!
