Types of SARMS « : February 16, 2015, 05:56:50 PM »
Since everyone is jumping on the SARMS wagon here are some different types. I already saw GW & LGD from Platinum Nutraceutical, Xcel with MK & LGD


Ostarine MK-2866

A type of SARM (short for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) is called Ostarine MK-2866. It is typically prescribed for the treatment and prevention of muscle wasting. Such health concerns can be genetic, due to HIV/AIDS, and other ailments. There are also studies in place that indicate this medication may soon be prescribed as part of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

SARMS create selective anabolic activity within various androgen receptors. There isnít any androgenic activity though for the non-skeletal muscle tissues though like there will be with the use of anabolic steroids or the use of testosterone. The use of Ostarine MK-2866 can assist with developing more strength as well as lean muscle tissue.

How it Works

The use of SARMS allows more protein to be synthesized so that the muscle tissue can be created. The use of Ostarine MK-2866 is very similar to the results a person would get taking various forms of steroids. However, they can do so without risk to the various sexual organs including the prostate.

When this SARM is used, there are anabolic results for the muscle tissue. It is a fairly new treatment for serious health problems including cancer and AIDS. It is frequently used by bodybuilders and athletes to provide them with more strength and muscle. It is also used to help them during recovery periods from injuries or surgery. Many athletes take a low dose of 15 mg per day to reduce the risk of an injury. Joint improvement can be noticed in about a week.

When it is Used

There are various types of cycles that a person may select to use Ostarine MK Ė 2866 for. One of them is a bulking cycle where they want to gain lean muscle tissue. This allows them to gain weight that is mainly muscle. They gains can be as much as 7 pounds and they can be seen over a period of 8 weeks, taking a dose of 25 mg per day. The daily dose shouldnít be more than 40 mg per day. For the best results it should be taken at the same time each day.

For a cycle of losing body fat known as cutting, reducing calories and increasing workout time can create more muscle. Cutting without the use of SARMS can result in losing muscle mass which can be frustrating. This is due to the drop in hormone levels and a reduction of the metabolic rate. With the use of Ostarine MK-2866, the strength or muscle loss wonít have to be a concern at all. For a cutting cycle, a dose of 15 mg to 20 mg per day for a period of 6 to 8 weeks is taken.

The nutritional value that this SARM offers is also very encouraging. The ability to successfully lose the weight but keep the muscle growth taking place is very important. With the use of steroids, it starts to take longer and longer to see results, but that isnít the case with Ostarine MK Ė 2866. There is also no risk for the liver to be damaged which is a common side effect with the use of steroids. It also wonít cause problems for blood pressure.

Advantages over Steroids

There are many advantages of taking Ostarine MK Ė 2866 over steroids. They include:

Less expensive
Not harsh on the liver
Not going to alter blood pressure
Results are seen quickly
Can help prevent issues with joints and bones due to injuries
No risk of estrogen related side effects
No risk of water retention
Offers nutritional value when cutting calories


LGD-4033

One of the members of the Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator category, also known as SARM, is LGD-4033. It is an oral product that is non-steroidal, but it can offer many of the same benefits as some of the anabolic steroids. The use of LGD-4033 medically includes treatment of muscle wasting. This can be due to issues with cancer or muscle loss due to the natural aging process.

The same benefits as testosterone are also offered with LGD-4033. The difference though is that the user doesnít have to worry about potential side effects. With testosterone, there can be the risk of the body not responding well or even damage to the liver. Even though this product is taken orally, it isnít toxic to the liver.

This is one of the most common SARMS used due to how powerful it is. Yet it is also gentle on the body when compared to steroids. For the individual that wants the results but not all of the hassles, this could be exactly what they were looking for.

How does it Work?

This SARM works by binding the androgen receptors selectively. The results of anabolic activity in the muscles and bones occur rather than adversely affecting the glands or the prostate which can occur with the use of steroids. LGD-4033 was recently involved in a study involving volunteers called Phase I Multiple Ascending Dose. This was a random, double blind testing phase that involved a placebo. The goal was to establish that the use of LGD-4033 was safe and easy to tolerate with a dose not to exceed 22 mg per day.

When to use LGD-4033

For many bodybuilders and athletes, the use of LGD-4033 occurs for a bulking phase in order to offer lean body mass and to reduce overall body fat. The use of it can also increase overall strength which allows the individual to take on more challenging workout sessions. When used for bulking, an efficient diet that is high in protein is also necessary. Higher calorie intake may be necessary too if the person will be bulking up by 10 pounds or more. The recommended dose is 5 to 10 mg per day, for a period of 8 weeks.

For a cutting cycle, it may be best to use LGD-4033 along with other SARMS including GW-501516 and S-4. This is called a SARMS triple stack. The goal is to add more size while cutting fat. The dose recommended for this type of cycle is 3 to 5 mg, for a period of 8 weeks.

Risk Factors

The results of various studies indicate that there is very little risk in regards to possible side effects associated with the use of LGD-4033. This is encouraging for those that would like to gain muscle and cut fat without using steroids that do have some harsh side effects associated with them. The fact that that SARMS donít harm the liver is also another reason to consider taking them instead of steroids. They are also inexpensive so the average person can use them without worrying about their budget.
 

GW-501516

A PPAR modulator allows the body to use more glucose and to create additional muscle tissue. One of the PPARs is GW-501516. It may be referred to as GW1516 or GSK-516 as well. It can help to reduce and even reverse various problems in men who are obese or that have symptoms of pre-diabetes due to problems with their metabolism. The use of GW-501516 may be a viable treatment for reducing obesity and various conditions that are linked to it.

How does it Work?

GW-501516 is a selective agonist with high affinity and it is very potent. Various studies on this PPAR receptor in lab rats indicates that it regulates the various proteins that the body uses for energy. Rats with high fat and low metabolism were given the product and they were able to lose weight and to increase overall energy levels.

When to Use it

The most common use of GW-501516 is to offer improved endurance levels. However, professional athletes canít use it because it falls under the category of banned substances. This eliminates any athletes having an unfair advantage over others. For someone looking for a way to quickly boost endurance, this product can help to offer fast results. The common dose is 10 mg per day.

Another popular use for GW-501516 is to reduce body fat. The fat starts to come off quickly and it isnít catabolic. The loss of fat wonít result in the loss of muscle either so that is a great benefit that users like. It is best to use it for body fat loss in addition to S4 and Ostarine, which are SARMS to ensure that the muscle loss is extremely minimal. The recommended dose is 10 mg per day but many people use as much as 20 mg per day to burn as much fat as they can in in the 8 week cycle.

Potential Risks

There is some debate about the side effects and potential risks involved with using GW-501516. Some of the studies on lab rats give the indication that it can cause cancer. In other studies, the conclusion is that there isnít enough data to validate or dismiss such a claim. The fact that it isnít toxic for the liver is important to point out. Since this product works fast, it is less expensive than steroids, it continues to be a popular choice.


Andarine S4

Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators are often referred to as SARMS. Andarine S4 is a research chemical that belongs to this category. It binds to the androgen receptor just like ordinary androgens. The difference though is that selective anabolic activity is created by SARMS.

What is it used for?

The benefit of using Andarine S4 over anabolic steroids or testosterone is that you donít have to worry about non-skeletal muscle tissues experiencing androgen activity. Andarine S4 is also used for various types of medical ailements. It may be prescribed to treat:

Bening Prostatic Hypertrophy
Muscle wasting
Osteoporosis
This is an oral product and it can help with creating lean body mass. It can also help with increasing the amount of lean muscle mass. Many people use it so that they can maximize their potential and create the body they really want.

How it is used varies based on what results a person is after. Losing Body Fat (cutting) is the process where the use of Andarine S4 is the most effective. The common steroids used for a cutting cycle include Anavar and Winstrol. Such steroids donít provide large gains for muscle mass. However, they do help with creating a leaner body. SARMS have similar properties to those steroids. However, they can provide similar results without negative side effects including retaining water.

Dosing

The typical dose for cutting is 50 mg for a cycle of 6 to 8 weeks. The cycle should include using the product daily for 5 days and then taking 2 days off for the duration. Tasking the dose every day for the duration of the cycle can result in changes to vision.

How it Works

The benefits of SARMS include potential for bodybuilders as well as benefits for certain medical conditions. SARMS work by binding to the androgen receptor. This results in the anabolic activity. Through the activation and binding, there is more protein synthesized which allows the muscle to be created. The use of Andarine S4 can result in muscle growth that is quite similar to what a person will gain using various forms of anabolic steroids. However, SARMS donít offer negative side effects such as those on the prostate or other sexual organs.

Benefits over Steriods

There are several benefits of Andarine S4 over the use of various anabolic steroids. They include:

Less expensive
No need for a pre-cycle
No risk to the liver
No risk of estrogen related side effects
No water retention
Overall sense of well being
Studies

Various studies have been conducted with Andarine S4. Taking 3 mg of it per day can help to restore skeletal muscle according to results on lab rats. A study that lasted for 120 days with this SARM and DHT in rats indicates that bone mass and strength at higher levels were identified with the use of Andarine S4 than with DHT.

Studies indicate that the use of this SARM can result in losing fat and creating lean muscle tissue. The goals can also be achieved in less time than if a person were to take steroids. Even though Andarine S4 is taken orally, it doesnít pose a risk to the liver so that is also another benefit to consider. It also doesnít create issues with too much estrogen in the body.

Possible Side Effects

There are some possible side effects to be aware of if you decide to use Andarine S4. Changes in vision is the most common. This is typically only going to occur at a high dose. If it occurs, lower the dose. The vision problems can include trouble seeing at night or a yellow tint. Vision changes will go away after the SARM is no longer in the system.

You might want to check some of the claims in that article - I'd be interested in links showing actual FDA  approvals.  MK2866 for example.

Looks like a pretty close reiterating of general sarms info, what's misleading?

I will point out some cons- LGD4033 is supposed to be very suppressive to hpta from what I have read, dose dependant of course, and we really don't know long term sides are. MK2866 can cause bone growth, thus the "osta" (osteo) in ostarine.

I know, I feel bad about not being around as much.

Don't have children under a year apart from eachother. All I'm gonna say. I'm kidding it's a joy. But opt to put time between them If you can.

I hear ya my man.  We've got a couple that are almost 2yrs apart and they're now 8 and 10.  It gets easier - a bit, but there's always something going on. 

Be well and I hope your time frees up a little for you.

claims on suppression, effectiveness, and advantages over steroids are misleading. not outright wrong for the most part
you're right there's a ton we don't know about these with long term sides being the big one in my opinion

Correct me if im wrong but i thought i had read that vison changes from S-4 were permanant? Not just for the duration of the cycle. Ive never used it personally because of that very reason. Ill try and find a source about that and post it, but thats just what i thought i had seen.

So i did a bit of research and found this, its just an annecdotal report, but ive seen several to this effect.

From "Steroid.com" forums
...Its been almost a year since I completed my cycle of S4, and my advice to anyone thinking about trying it: The results are not worth the sides. I had vision problems on a relatively low dosage (yellow tint and poor night vision). The vision issues went away...but about a month ago, I was at the zoo with my girlfriend in the reptile cave...I literally could not see the stone bench directly in front of my face. My asks..."Are you serious? You can't see that?"...I am worried my eye sight is f*cked permanantly now...

Its a shame because I personally would love to run a SARMs stack with S4 in it, but my vision already sucks as it is lol.
