Best PCT Supplements for Bodybuilding

So, you're doing your PCT like you should and you're not really sure if you're doing enough. Your liver might be suffering and a good organ support supplement might save your career.
Best PCT Supplements

So you’ve completed your cycle, outlifted your gym bro, got the girl, and now you’re king of the gym. Obviously, you start your PCT (Post Cycle Treatment) as soon as you can to make sure you hold on to all that juicy gains, and that you don’t accidentally develop some gyno…

As you pop your Clomid or Nolva, or inject your HCG, you couldn’t help but think, “Should I be taking certain supplements?” – well, yeah you should; PCT supplements to be precise.

A PCT is really not something that should be underdone, you’re messing with hormones that can affect your years down the line and even just doing 90% instead of 100% could have grave consequences. The main goals of your PCT should be to increase testosterone production, manage estrogen and healing of vital organs. Do not mess this up.

What are the best PCT supplements?

  • Fenugreek extract has been found to have significant effects on serum total testosterone levels in males (1)
  • Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C) can have anti estrogenic effects (2)
  • Vitamin B6 is a powerful prolactin inhibitor (3)
  • Ashwagandha Root has been found to increase testosterone and Luteinizing Hormone (LH) (4)

Fenugreek Extract

If you frequent at Indian restaurants you’ve probably ate some of this already. Found in almost all PCT supplements, Fenugreek extract is a compound derived from the Fenugreek plant, with various uses outside of flavor. Studies have shown positive effects on insulin sensitivity, apetite control, heartburn, inflammation, and of course the big one – testosterone increase.

Studies have found that Fenugreek Extract has significant positive effects on testosterone in males, as well as a slight increase in muscle mass and decrease in fat mass. All things you’ll want while on PCT as low testosterone and higher bodyfat are both associated with higher estrogen levels, which can be detrimental for your health as a male.

Not only does Arimiplex® PCT from HiTech Pharmaceuticals contain a good amount of Fenugreek, but it also contains prostate -, liver -, and cardiovascular support. Bonus, it even has a anti estrogenic compound called Androsta 3,5-diene-7,17-dione.

Best PCT Supplements


  • Can suppress apatite, so keeping weight off post cutting cycle is easier
  • Arimiplex® PCT is a full PCT supplement, covering testosterone suppression, estrogenic sides, and health effects.


  • Because Fenugreek can suppress apatite, maintaining weight post bulk cycle can be harder
  • When Fenugreek is massively overdosed, it can have DNA damaging effects

Indole-3-Carbinol (I3C)

Indole-3-Carbinol (Christ what a name) is a compound that comes from the breakdown of glucosinolate glucobrassicin, which is found in … wait for it … Cruciferous vegetables. Considering the fact that I3C can be a negative regulator for estrogen, maybe Popeye should’ve been popping cans of broccoli.

As you run a cycle of testosterone, some of it aromatizes into estrogen, which at normal physiological levels is healthy and needed. However, too high estrogen levels have been linked to fat gain, libido problems, inflammation, and muscle loss. Thus, controlling elevated estrogen post cycle is essential, especially if you are very sensitive to estrogen.

Estrogenex® 2nd Generation from HiTech Pharmaceuticals contains a proprietary blend of ingredients, with one of the main ones being I3C. Not only does Estrogenex® 2nd Generation help control estrogenic sides, but it also limits DHT conversion via 5-alpha-reductase.

The best supplements for PCT


  • I3C seems to have anti cancer properties as well
  • Suppresses DHT conversion as well


  • Some people complain that I3C causes nausea and rashes

Vitamin B6

Now I can speak from personal experience that this has saved me before. This teeny little vitamin has massive suppressive effects on prolactin. Prolactin is a hormone made the Pituitary Gland with the main purpose of allowing mammals to lactate. Yup, your cycle can make your nipples leak, or Galactorrhea if you wanna sound fancy.

Often associated with 19-Nors like Deca, or Trenbolone, prolactin has a host of effects on the body besides lactating nipples, such as libido problems, emotional problems, and gyno-like effects. In fact, prolactin can actually snowball on top of high estrogen so managing both is exceptionally important.

Behemoth Labz stocks a very nice product called Cycle It – honestly such a great name. Ideal for a post cycle support, it sports some Vitamin B6 with some other goodies like Milk Thistle which can take some stress of your liver; trust me it needs it.

PCT Supplements


  • Contains more than just Vitamin B6
  • Offers a moneyback guarantee
  • Possibly the most cost effective of the PCT supplements


  • Need super high dose of Vitamin B6
  • Continuous Super high doses of Vitamin B6 has health effects

Ashwagandha Root

As you cycle with exogenous testosterone, both your Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) will begin to lower. This in turn will shut off your Leydig Cells as they need LH to keep working. This will cause a decrease in serum testosterone but also Intra testicular testosterone (ITT) – the type responsible for making sperm and therefore, babies.

Ashwagandha root has been shown to not only increase LH, but also free testosterone as well. Some studies even show it having positive effects on FSH, prolactin, and semen profiles in the male body. This could potentially be one of the crucial compounds in your PCT, especially if you plan on having kids soon (5).

Alpha Capsules from Behemoth Labs does contain a sizable dose of Ashwagandha, providing you with all the fertility benefits you could need. It also has other compounds inside such as Tribulus and D Aspartic Acid, both having positive effects on testosterone production.

PCT Supplement


  • Can help with more than just increasing testosterone
  • Added Bioperine for increased bioavailability


  • Some claim Ashwagandha causes an upset stomach, diarrhea, and vomitingMore studies are needed for conclusive evidence

Take home message

A PCT is 9 times out of 10 definitely needed, and with good reason. People run too high gear, for way too long and then complain about the sides. You have to be smart and make sure you cover your butt when you mess around with hormones. So just like buying extra guacamole at Chipotle, splurge and just give your body the best chance to walk away as healthy as possible after your cycle. Your body and your girlfriend will thank you.

There is absolutely no other acceptable PCT other than a SERM. So happy I’ve got it (Getpct365). Please for your own health do not run a cycle of anything if you don’t have either Nolva or Clomid.
