Ostarine has been around for a number of years and is gaining popularity in the bodybuilding world.
But what is it and what does it do?
This infamous compound is hyped to have many of the positive effects of anabolic steroids but without any of the nasty side effects but that's just the tip of the iceberg. It has a treasure chest of health benefits.
By the way - don't listen to 'Big Pharma' propaganda or some random forum post you found online; Ostarine does not cause cancer any more than the aspartame in your Cola does. These studies are giving insane amounts of Ostarine to rats - and I don't think you're about to start swallowing handfuls of pills every day...
So, let's get back to why we love Ostarine...
The Many Benefits of Ostarine
In a nutshell, this wonder-SARM is a favourite all for good reason:
- Ostarine is highly anabolic (even at doses as low as 3mg)
- Boosts fat loss
- Improves strength
- Enhances endurance
- Promotes healing and recovery
- Highly effective for joint repair
- Muscle-soreness becomes a thing of the past!
- Increases vascularity
- Helps to treat androgen-related hair loss
The Difference between Ostarine and Steroids
Like steroids, it's used to promote muscle growth and to prevent muscle wastage, but unlike steroids, it also has strong restorative properties and is hugely effective for repair and particularly joint recovery.
There are other differences too. Ostarine affects your body in a different way to anabolic steroids and it this difference which makes it less hazardous to use.
As a SARM (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) Ostarine affects anabolic activity directly without flooding hormones through your system.
Like steroids, Ostarine targets the androgen receptors but doesn't convert it to oestrogen. This is the fundamental reason why Ostarine avoids the nasty side effects linked to steroids.
How does Ostarine Work?
Ostarine was developed to aid patients in recovery. The idea was to create a drug which prevented muscle and bone wastage in patients with little to no mobility. Because it targets only skeletal muscle it is also ideal for the creation of muscle and because of this property, it has found huge popularity among athletes and the bodybuilding world.
Weight and muscle gained through the use of Ostarine comes at a much lower cost than those gained through anabolic steroids. Unlike steroids, there is no water retention and because the use of Ostarine does not create dramatically increased levels of estrogen or equally lowered levels of testosterone there is a lesser risk of gynecomastia, aka the dreaded man boobs.
Ostarine Boosts Fat Loss
Ostarine not only helps athletes build muscle but it also promotes fat loss. The two occur at the same time and it's a great way to kill two birds with a single stone. The benefit of shedding fat without dieting is obvious. Dieting slows your metabolism and a slower metabolism is not the best scenario for building muscle.
How to use Ostarine
An effective dose is 10-25mg daily. The half-life is 24 hours so there is no need to split your dose. Cycles can vary in length between 4-8 weeks with a recovery cycle of 4 weeks thereafter. Never exceed 12 weeks.
It's a good idea to begin the cycle whilst training with lower weights and higher reps, then lift heavier when you go off cycle. This will give you solid results and won't put you at risk of being unable to maintain your hard-fought gains during your 'off cycles'.
Is Ostarine Safe to Use?
Given that Ostarine is a SARM, you can rest assured you won't be experiencing any of the typical side effects related to steroids, such as hair loss, gynecomastia or virilization in women. In fact, it's a very popular compound amongst women in particular and effectively helps to treat androgen-related hair loss.
Side Effects of Ostarine
Despite its many magical benefits, Ostarine is still a powerful substance and may cause mild side effects, such as:
- Mild suppression
- May cause headaches, especially in the first few days
Although very rare, it has been known to cause puffy nipples due to an increase in serum estradiol, only in users who are extremely sensitive to estrogen.
Ostarine is an effective and relatively harmless SARM and can provide a good alternative or bridge to the use of steroids. Taken sensibly it does wonders for healing and recovery whilst offering all the benefits of building muscle, reducing wastage and shedding fat, with little or no side effects. Being safe for both men and women, Ostarine is arguably one of the most highly rated SARMs on the market today.
