What to know about Enclomiphene
How it Works
Unlike other Testosterone treatments which increase the amount of testosterone in the body, SERMs like Enclomiphene work instead by reducing reactivity to estrogen in the bloodstream which in turn causes testosterone production to increase and testosterone levels to rise.
Enclomiphene is a stronger antagonist of the Estrogen receptor than Clomiphene and this higher affinity for the Estrogen receptor makes it more specific for the receptor, which decreases estrogen-related side effects.
Who’s it For?
Men of childbearing age with Low-T may choose to use Enclomiphene to avoid the negative effects on fertility, sperm production and testicular size while increasing their testosterone levels.
In multiple studies, Enclomiphene has been found to be effective in raising testosterone levels without damaging male fertility.1, 2. Some studies show a 2x increase in endogenous Testosterone production.
