What are SARMs?
By Nick Bennett, Richard Perez, and Richard Stone
SARMs (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators) aid in muscle growth by boosting anabolic activity in androgenic receptors. Androgenic proteins are the main source of the muscle building process. Intended to have the same muscle building effects as pro-hormones and steroids, SARMS are legal and have significantly less side effects. They are in no way, shape, or form a pro-hormone or steroid because they act in such in a way as to boost your body?s natural muscle building ability and they are legal.
What can you expect from a SARM and the addition of a healthy diet and adequate training program?
Strength, stamina, size, and enhanced anabolic capabilities
What can you avoid or lesson when using SARMs?
With SARMs, you do not need to run any form of anti-estrogen or a PCT (Post Cycle Therapy) like you may have had to do with pro-hormones.
TYPES OF SARMS:
There are several different types of SARMs, but the most anabolic compound is Ostarine. Ostarine will decrease body fat percentages while maintaining strength and muscle mass.
Its predecessor, LGD-4300, is mainly used for bulking. LGD-4033 is an investigational selective androgen receptor modulator for treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting and osteoporosis, essentially preventing muscles from going catabolic, as well as supporting quick repair time.
