Is SARMs a steroid?
Pharmaceutical companies have developed SARMs, which stands for selective androgen receptor modulator, as an alternative to anabolic steroids in people with age-related muscle atrophy. But they are the subject of ongoing clinical trials that have not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
What are the types of SARMs?
There are numerous types of SARMs on the market, with some having stronger and riskier SARMs side effects than others.
The most common ones you’ll see for sale are:
Ostarine MK-2866 (or GTx-024) – this one is popular for cycles and can be used in PCT or to bridge dosages. 25mgs a day (or less) taken over 4 weeks won’t cause testosterone suppression, but can encourage lean muscle mass; fat loss; increased strength, and protection of soft tissue health/joints. It is currently being tested for bone health and muscle wasting. Dosages can range from 20-50mgs a day.
Anabolicum- Ligandrol (LGD-4033) – this SARM is currently in clinical testing for its prevention of muscle wasting. It is believed to be great for soft tissues, joints, and bone health, but can also encourage lean muscle mass gains, strength increases, and fat loss when taken as a dosage of 5-20mgs a day.
Andarine (GSX-007 or S-4) – this SARM is best known for its ability to increase strength. It can also improve lean muscle mass and fat loss. Dosages range from 25-75mgs a day.
Testolone (RAD140) – originally designed with the hope it would replace anabolic hormones for replacement therapy; Testolone has got excellent pharmacokinetics and is considered the most powerful SARM on the market. 10mg-20mgs a day can encourage lean muscle mass growth, libido boosts, improved bone health, and increased strength.
What is funny about some of these is the fact that whilst they are referred to and sold as SARMs – they aren’t! Take the following:
Cardarine is a PPAR receptor (a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor) agonist that can significantly promote skeletal muscle fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscles (not the liver). It is regularly stacked with other SARMs (as it isn’t hormonal) and can safely be taken in dosages of 10-20mg a day to boost fat burn and endurance.
Stenabolic is a Rev-Erba agonist that regularly gets stacked with SARMs. It should be taken 1-2 hours pre-exercise (5-30mgs per day) to improve fat burn, and can safely be used at any time as it isn’t hormonal.
Nutrobal/Ibutamoren (MK677) again isn’t a SARM but is sold as one. It is actually a growth hormone secretagogue that adds to your growth hormone and IGF-1 (insulin growth factor-1) by adding to existing hormones. It reportedly can boost your performance and sleep quality; increase your appetite and fat loss, and over time, can encourage faster muscle recovery. Dosages should be 12.5mg taken one to two times a day.
Andarine with other SARMs: One of the most used SARMs available is Andarine. Although it’s effective on its own, if you’re looking to achieve maximum results, you should consider pairing it with MK-2866 and LGD-4033.
Candarine and LGD-4033: These SARMs combined provide extreme muscle mass. We suggest you start out with just Cardarine and then add on the LGD-4033 one.
Candarine and MK-2866: MK-2866 has little to no side effects, which makes it easy to stack with other SARMs.
Ostarine and LGD4033: Yet again, LGD4033 is easy to stack with other SARMs since it’s used quite often. Since it doesn’t help burn fat if you take it on its own, if you pair it with Ostarine, you’ll both lose fat and build muscle mass.
Ostarine & GW-501516: Stacking these two SARMs is perfect for cutting muscle and improving muscle tone. Ostarine builds strength, burns fat, and gains muscle.
Cardarine, Ostarine, and Andarine: If you really want to focus on cutting, then there’s no better way to do so than by stacking these three SARMs.
Why bodybuilders opt for SARMs
SARMs were originally developed as a healthier alternative to testosterone replacement therapy. However, it is still not certain if they can help you achieve your goal. Most bodybuilders who use them do so for the following reasons. For one, they use them as a starting point before they go into their usual steroid cycles. Another reason is increasing the effectiveness of their steroid cycles without any aggravating side effects. Bodybuilders also believe SARMs can help them retain lean mass without any increase in water retention. Oddly enough, athletes praise them for being harder to detect during drug tests. A 2009 research shows that SARMs are less powerful for muscle building in comparison to traditional steroids. On the other hand, they are still more effective than natural substances like creatine.
How to tell SARMs or SARMs powder source
User Reviews. Always make sure to check if a source has plenty of positive user reviews. If a source barely has any reviews at all then you should be extremely cautious. This means that not a lot of people have tried their products yet or perhaps they are a brand new source.
Third-party documents. A good source will send out products to a reputable laboratory to have them analyzed. Through HPLC they will be able to measure the purity of a compound. You want to make sure the SARMs are pure, at least 98% or higher. If you ask a source for third-party reports and they don’t have them I would highly suggest purchasing elsewhere.
The Website. If the website looks sketchy and doesn’t really provide you with any information then make sure to continue your search. In my opinion, a website should be fully functional and should provide a customer with plenty of information to answer all of their questions.
Payment Options. Some SARMs vendors will only have cryptocurrency available as a payment method. Be extremely careful when paying. If they scam you, you won’t be able to get your money back!
