    Drop in HDL due to arimidex, Any alternative?

    5 years in to my competitive bodybuilding Journey and my good cholesterol HDL has never been higher than 36mg/dl. Normally fluctuating between 13 mg/dl to 26mg/dl.

    Based on my bloodwork, average every 4 months, I know its the arimidex that drop it down, I tried novadex but still the results stays around 25 mg/dl. I tried not to use ancillary (the cholesterol problem is solved, HDL 44-49mg/dl )but the 17-estradiol rise so much that it screw with brain and I cant cope with that.

    My total cholesterol is not hight around 160mg/dl normally, LDL 130mg/dl triglycerides 60 to 80 mg/dl

    so normally my T col/HDL is around 7

    I have always used Extra Virgin olive oil (I'm italian, I make it), Avocado, nuts (Fat consumption around 100g a day) with 5g of EPA/DHA a day.

    DOES anyone knows any way out there to use any ancilliary that can allow my good colesterol HDL to stay higher?

    Thank you for taking the time to read it and advise.

    High dose Niacin can substantially raise HDL cholesterol. The protocol I saw said take 1.5g three times per day. It causes you to flush red and heat up when you first take it, but over time you tolerate it better.

    I have also heard something about the niacin, but I heard that it takes months to see results.

    I would suggest some oats with each meal, as they tend to absorb fats in the digestive system.

    Also, cardio seems to help HDL a bit, according to some doctors.

    Certain Niacin's like the guys mentioned above. I use either Slo-Niacin or Endur-Acin. Lately I prefer the latter which I'll take at least twice daily with lunch and at bedtime. It will help.
    956Vette and almostgone like this.
