Lets have a quick look at the different SARMS avaiable at the moment.
I have been in the health and fitness industry since leaving school, so around 30 plus years now. I have seen products and companies come and go.
I have seen the popularity of differing physiques change, from super shredded to mass and bulk, back to shredded then bulk and shredded.
The technology we have access to now is amazing and the research being done is very exciting.
So we now come to a genuine game changer – SARM's Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. I believe Genuine SARMs Like ours, are as good as steroids in most cases and that is a big statement to make.
Here is a general breakdown on the different sarms we have available and what they predominantly will do.
Cardarine is not actually a SARM – it is a PPAR-delta activator. This means it doesn’t directly influence the androgen receptors. Cardarine was initially researched for its fat-burning potential and further developed to potentially treat health issues around the heart and blood vessels. It is known to have a range of benefits for athletic performance and bodybuilding, including reduction of inflammation and increased fat-burning potential.
Helps maintain good blood flow to the brain
PPAR-delta activation increases fat burn and energy use
May even reverse symptoms of metabolic syndrome including liver fat and triglycerides
Increases nitric oxide to minimise oxidative damage to blood vessel
Lowers risk of heart disease
Suppresses inflammation (another benefit of activating the PPAR-delta pathway)
Encourages the liver to use fatty acids (to glucose) as energy which can reduce blood sugar
Better development of muscle fibres for strength, endurance, mass
Ostarine has been researched for its potential to reverse the effects of catabolism in muscle-wasting diseases and the ageing population. It is still in the clinical trial stage, making it one of the SARMs more likely to be approved for clinical use.
Ostarine is favoured by bodybuilders for its effects on muscle gain and strength gain with minimal risk of side effects.
SARMs results to expect from MK-2866:
Increases muscle mass and strength
Gives a dry, lean muscle gain appearance
Supports better fat loss without muscle loss
No water retention
Better pumps during training
Can reverse muscle loss (potentially when dieting in a calorie deficit)
No known impact on hormone levels
Beneficial for bone strength and bone density
Can lower cholesterol and blood glucose
May activate muscle satellite cells to help regenerate muscle tissue and connective tissue
No need for PCT or liver support supplements
Ibutamoren isn’t a SARM but a growth hormone secretagogue that is known to stimulate your natural production of growth hormone to increase GH levels. By increasing the body’s secretion of GH, it also increases IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor) both of which are key anabolic hormones.
Ibutamoren binds to a part of the brain that plays a part in appetite.
Increases growth hormone secretion
Improves muscle mass gain
Can reduce muscle loss during dieting phases
Boosts ability to lose body fat
Bone strength and bone density
LGD-4033 is often called the most potent of the SARM compounds. It was developed to improve patients’ recovery from fractures, because of its effect on tissue regeneration and strength.
Muscle mass gains (good choice for a bulk)
Fat loss (although may temporarily be masked by some water retention)
Bone density and bone strength
Positive effects on catabolism including cachexia
Can help retain muscle whilst dieting
Increased sense of wellbeing and libido
SR9009 is not a SARM, it is a REV-ERB agonist. It mediates optimal metabolic function being described often as an exercise mimetic, or something which can provide similar effects as can be expected from exercise.
Stenabolic was developed for its effects on the circadian rhythm – it enhances REV-ERB (the proteins which stabilise our internal body clock).
It has been shown to impact a number of health factors including anxiety, endurance, cholesterol, and inflammation.
SR9009 has the ability to affect weight loss without dieting, according to a 7-day study on mice.
Can impact the genes under circadian control
Potential to boost fat burn and increase mitochondria activity
“Turns off” the genes which encourage fat storage
Potent metabolism booster and fat burner
Enhances endurance and stamina
Enhance REV-ERB activity
Reduces fat and cholesterol
Improves heart function
Non-stimulant and non-hormonal
Reduces levels of triglycerides and total cholesterol in the blood
Muscular endurance for improved training performance
Supports better mood and energy, reduces anxiety
SARMTestolone mimics testosterone but avoids the side effects of traditional testosterone supplements. It is being used in research for increasing muscle mass and protecting brain cells from degeneration.
SARMs results to expect from RAD-140:
More anabolic than testosterone
Anabolic to androgenic ratio of 90:1
A great addition to a prohormone cycle
Best for bulking cycles
Improves libido and sexual performance
Best SARM for muscle growth and size
Reduces fat and increases muscle mass
Ideal to enhance body composition
Rapid muscle recovery
A safer alternative to anabolic steroids
No androgenic side effects such as male pattern baldness
Excellent stacking potential with other SARMs
