What are SARMs?

Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are therapeutic compounds that bind to androgen receptors and have anabolic properties.


How can we use SARMS?

When SARMs bind to an androgen receptor, they produce an anabolic and hypertrophic activity in both the bone and muscle. This makes SARMs the best choice of bodybuilders for the achievement of building more body muscle, lessening fat, and increasing bone density. They also are used for osteoporosis treatment, and muscle wasting treatment.

SARMs are being evaluated as a clinical treatment for muscle-wasting caused by several diseases, such as osteoporosis, cancer, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, end-stage liver disease, end-stage renal disease, and HIV.


SARMS Vs Steroids.

Compared to steroids, SARMs are safer and more beneficial than steroids without causing the side effects that steroids cause.

Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are similar to anabolic steroids, but they aren’t the same. Both work by binding to  androgen receptors in certain tissues to do their action through triggering changes in DNA and allowing your body muscles to grow.

But steroids act as a blind object as they bind to androgen receptors in many tissues all over the body, such as the liver, the muscle tissue, the prostate gland, and the bones and they can affect badly on other parts of the body causing many side effects as prostate issues, hair loss and acne.

It’s believed that Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are called “tissue selective” as they selectively bind androgen receptors in certain tissues and can target a single androgen in your body: your skeletal muscle. So they can do the desirable actions with less side effects.


What are the benefits of using SARMS?

SARMs have several benefits, including:

  • Promote and Maintain Muscle Growth
  • Better Strength Gains
  • Quicker Fat Loss
  • Improving Athletic Performance
  • Less side effects: estrogen-related changes and water retention.


What are the side effects associated with SARMS?

The long-term effects of using SARMs on the body are unknown. But, with careful dosing and right stacking, it’s presumably that the side-effects should be minimal. They are nowhere as dangerous as side-effects of anabolic steroids though.

The FDA has warned consumers about potential life-threatening side effects from SARMs, including an increased risk of heart attack and stroke. Life threatening reactions, including liver toxicity, have occurred in people taking products containing SARMs. SARMs also have the potential to increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Some studies have proved that Ostarine, a product from SARMs group, is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when taken by mouth. Liver damage has been reported in some people taking ostarine. Other common side effects of ostarine include stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, headache, nausea, fever, heart attack, and stroke.

The eventuality of the effects and possible side-effects also depends on where the user sources the product from as well as dosing and stacking. So, there’s a lot to be taken into consideration. Consumers should stop using these body-building products immediately and consult a health care professional if they are experiencing any adverse reactions that may be associated with their use.


Are SARMs illegal?

Yes. SARMs are illegal and prohibited in sports.

SARMs have been prohibited by WADA since 2008. SARMs have the potential to be misused for performance enhancement in sport due to their anabolic properties as well as the ability to stimulate androgen receptors in muscle and bone. They are currently prohibited at-all-times in the category of “other anabolic agents” under section S1.2 of the WADA Prohibited List.

SARMs are not legal ingredients for any dietary supplements. However, there are many dietary supplements on the market that are contaminated with, or advertised to contain, SARMs. Dietary supplements containing SARMs could pose significant health risks to athletes and cause a positive test. Athletes should be aware that SARM ingredients could be listed on dietary supplement product labels under various names.
