In the August issue of Muscular Development (pp. 328) there is an article about anti-estrogens. The author recommended formestane and there was a chart that had the changes in IGF-1 levels from some anti-estrogens. Nolvadex decreased IGF-1 by 24% while formestane INCREASED it by 26%.

I know of a few supp companies that have Formestane products, but I have never tried it. Has anyone here taken it before?

I've used it as an AI while using PH. The problem is that it is mildly suppressive so while it may increase IGF-1, it will cause suppression of HPTA (suppresses natural test). It is usually used while "on cycle" as suppression is expected and therefore isn't an issue.

Studies have also shown that formestane loses its effectiveness in about 3 weeks.
