For some of the more hardcore supplementers out there, post cycle therapy is something that you’ve already made a part of your regular long term routines. Some of the foreign substances or we ingest can throw our hormone balances out of whack . As we continue to supplement, our systems get used to the new baseline levels of hormones and start to normalize. Unfortunately, the same thing struggles to happen naturally when we stop using the supplements. Our hormones and organs go nuts again and we struggle to find the new norm, often leading to negative effects on all the results we’ve achieved from the hard work we’ve put in. Occasionally, these negative side effects can lead to crazy serious psychotic episodes or mental breakdowns. Messing with the chemical balances in your body can often directly affect your brain function. In an effort to educate our readers on the importance of post cycle therapy, we’re going to take a look at the best types of PCT for each of the main types of fitness freaks: fat burners and muscle gainers.
Post Cycle Therapy After Fat Burners
It doesn’t matter that you haven’t been trying to become the next Brock Lesner. You don’t need to be a heavy body builder or steroid user to cause uncomfortable or unhealthy chemical imbalances in your body due to halting supplementation efforts. People who have been supplementing in an effort to maximize fat burn and weight loss have been putting their internal organs under a good bit of stress. Our organs don’t really understand what we’re doing when we’re ingesting new and foreign supplements and genuinely struggle to process them sometimes. Altering your diet with an emphasis on calorie deficit support for exercise can weaken your innards. Our Descend product line provides your system with the regenerative nutrients it needs to recover from the stressful, and hopefully temporary, lifestyle you’re imposing on it in and effort to lose weight.
Utilize Post Cycle Therapy products if you have supplemented with any or all of the following to lose weight:

Post Cycle Therapy After Body Builders/Muscle Gainers
Just because we tout fresh and safe supplements doesn’t mean you’re off the hook and can skip out on post cycle therapy treatments. The supplements we talk about here are safe for humans and really effective in helping you down the fitness road, but that doesn’t mean unavoidable side effects don’t occur over time . Your hormones are completely out of whack. Testosterone levels have been at all time highs and estrogen levels have been at all time lows. Once you’ve finished supplementing, you need to convince your body that it is okay to start producing healthy amounts of testosterone on its own again… and that estrogen isn’t such a bad thing. Our Descend product is going to help your hormone levels go back to a natural, healthy baseline that they were at prior to your supplementation regimen with a smooth transition and little shock to your body. The last thing you need is to be super strong with sudden and unexpected rage issues!
Utilize Post Cycle Therapy products if you have supplemented with any or all of the following to increase muscle gain:

Do not mistake this article as us saying supplementation is bad for you. It most definitely isn’t so long as you follow dosage directions and negate any harmful affects that could unintentionally be lingering as a result by practicing healthy Post Cycle Therapy.
