Selective Androgen Receptive Modulators or SARMs are molecules developed to replace and serve as an ideal replacement to anabolic steroid treatments. SARMs are reputed to benefit the human body by not only promoting lean muscle gain but also the loss of fat as well. Moreover, SARMs are known to exhibit excellent hypertrophic activity in bone, therefore, promoting the increase in bone density and as an adjunctive useful for the treatment of osteoporosis.
With fewer side effects as compared to anabolic steroids, SARMs are close to taking over the world of bodybuilding and treatments due to their high utilization and absorption in the body. To know more about the keen bioavailability of SARMs and their significantly lower nontoxicity to body organs, read more here.
Let’s discuss about the top two benefits of SARMs on the human body below.
Acts as a Bulking Agent
With a half-life ranging from 24 to 36 hours at most, LGD 4033, a SARM, is an impressive bulking agent and has proved to contribute to promote vigorous body mass with fewer to minimal side effects. By taking a daily dose of 1 mg of LGD 4033, recipients not only showed optimal results with a 3-pound muscle mass gain in 3 weeks, but also no toxic side effects to the liver, blood pressure, hematocrit, and heart rate.
Raises Levels of Growth Hormone
MK 677, also known as Ibutamoren, is a non-hormonal SARM known for promoting the levels of growth hormone and IGF-1 in the human body. A proportional increase in appetite and consumption of energy also contribute to increased levels of growth hormone, hereby, leading to increased bone density and overall body muscle mass.
Patients usually report of numbness or tingling sensation in their limbs, mainly due to the increased levels of growth hormone in the blood, which is a common side effect and treated counter effectively.
