SARMs, also known as Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, is a drug which works similar to anabolic steroids. It can help increase muscle growth which can also promote fat loss. There are a lot of different types of SARMs that are available in the market and many which have not to be approved for medical use.
Androgens are hormones which help produce the traits of masculinity and has other purposes as well, which is binding your cells to androgen receptors, covert DHT and convert the hormone estrogen. Normally, your body can regulate the androgen which can help prevent the imbalance. But, with an imbalance, your receptors may become saturated which can easily cause muscles to lose its stability. If you are weightlifter, this is one of your worst nightmares. As SARMs is an anabolic steroid, it can easily tell your body to grow muscle without any harmful side effect. This is accomplished by exposing the brain to break down unwanted molecules feeding the cells to build muscles.
The History of SARMS
SARMs was initially developed to help people with diseases like muscle wasting, osteoporosis, etc. This was supposed to be a healthier alternative to testosterone replacement therapy(Watch This). Generally, bodybuilders use this as a treatment before they go ahead with their steroid cycles and sometimes to stop the effects of these steroids. Bodybuilders especially love SARMs as they help with developing lean mass rather than retain water and with research on the topic, it was concluded that the muscles build with the help of SARMs are not as powerful as the steroids produced. They are also one of the most popular among the athletes, which is also very difficult to produce.
Are SARMs safe?
This is one questions that have been around for years, and with the lack of sufficient research, one cannot be sure of the right answers. Most of the people are not aware of the long term effects of SARMs usage, but one cannot use SARMs without buying them from the black market. Most of the times the products that you buy is generally mislabeled, contamination and other adulterated forms.
The side effects of the SARMs
SARMs are not entirely free from side effects, although minimal, can grow to be something big. Bodybuilders do not generally take large dosages which will lead them to experience greater symptoms. No matter the type of drug you are using, if you are looking to keep the numbers of your natural testosterone high, SARMs will not help you with the process.
Also, with the recent study, it is easy to conclude that persistent use of the drug can lead to premature baldness and might decline the natural testosterone production.
