What are sarms?
Are performance enhancers. They are being developed or were developed, for the main purpose of binding to cellular androgen receptors. The purpose was to give the same beneficial effects as anabolic steroids, but in a selective manner, which means way fewer bad effects for men and especially women who use them.
SARMS have been developed since post-WWII by modifying the testosterone molecule. Big pharma has been increasing their testing over the past couple decades with the goal of having one approved that would replace testosterone replacement therapy, drugs/hormones for muscle wasting, and osteoporosis issues.
Types of sarms?
LGD-4033 (anabolicum) is an actual SARM and maybe the most consistent in terms of its use during a calorie deficit to prevent muscle wasting. Users also say they experience a boost in lean muscle mass, some strength, and fat loss. The recommended dosage is 5-10mgs a day.
MK-2866 (Ostarine) is also a SARM and is popularly used on cycle and also can be used in PCT or bridge at proper dosages. When used at 25mgs a day or less, for 4 weeks or less, it is not suppressive. It is excellent at producing lean muscle mass, fat loss, and also at helping with soft tissue health.
S4 (andarine) is a SARM which is known for its ability to increase strength better than even LGD. It also can be used for lean muscle mass and fat loss as well. Users typically run 25-75mgs per day.
RAD140 (Testolone) is the most powerful SARM that is popularly available. Users are recommended to use 10mg a day. Expect a boost in lean muscle mass, libido, and strength when using it.
The biggest complaint with MK-677 is the hunger issue, also if abused you can develop similar side effects as you would get on human growth hormone-like internal growths, some bloating, and carpal tunnel.
LGD side effects are suppression. It is considered the most suppressive of the main SARMS that are popularly sold, so it is important to run a PCT after using.
MK-2866 is suppressive when used at more than 25mgs a day, for more than 4 weeks, therefore a PCT is needed in that situation.
S4 binds to receptors around the eyes which can cause vision issues, especially at higher dosages. I do not recommend driving at night while on S4 for this reason. It also is suppressive where a PCT is needed.
RAD140 is extremely strong and suppressive, almost as suppressive as anabolic steroids. You should always run a PCT after using it.
