Liquid SARMs Vs Capsules: What’s More Effective?

Liquid vs capsule SARMs, which is more effective? Is it better to take SARMs in liquid or capsule form – what are the pros and cons?

SARMs – selective androgen receptor modulators – can be amazingly effective at helping you build muscle, gain more mass, build strength and even diet more effectively (developing that full, hard look every bodybuilder wants).

There are a lot of questions surrounding SARMs. Which SARM should you use? Can you stack SARMs? What do SARMs do?

But then there is another question – one which many websites don’t answer. Which is more effective, liquid SARMs or capsule/tablet SARMs?

With so many SARMs on offer, it’s important to weigh up the pros and cons of choosing liquid vs capsule delivery systems. Before you make a decision, read our guide to liquid SARMs and capsule SARMs.

Why Are Some SARMs Liquid & Some SARMs Capsules?

The most important thing to understand is that all SARMs start out as raw ingredients in powder form. The liquid, capsule or tablet is just the delivery system.

Putting anything in a capsule form kind of suggests it might be used for medicinal purposes or as a food supplement, and in some countries, SARMs are not FDA approved for dietary use. As a result. some companies choose a liquid delivery system to stay well away from any such associations.

Liquid SARMs show that the manufacturer is trying to keep everything totally cut-and-dried from a legal perspective, which isn’t to say that liquid SARMs are illegal or banned.

Remember, SARMs are only banned by WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency). For use outside of drug-tested sport, you need to refer to your country’s legal view on SARMs. We wrote about the legality of SARMs here. SARMs are not currently viewed as illegal but some countries have their own regulations (like the UK, which says SARMs are legal to buy and sell but illegal to sell as a food supplement or as a medicine).

Liquid Vs Capsule SARMs: Bioavailability

Are liquid SARMs absorbed faster than capsule versions? It would make sense to think this way, but there is no evidence to suggest that liquid SARMs get into your system any quicker than capsule orals. If that was the case, wouldn’t every vitamin, supplement, and medical drug in the world be delivered in a liquid form? But they’re not – just think about all the different capsules you see for sale, or maybe even take as part of your supplement regime.

In most cases, capsules are the preferred method of taking SARMs. Capsules are easier to take, more appealing and have a kind of nicer image, plus they have a longer shelf life.

Liquid Vs Capsule SARMs: Which Should You Choose?

Some people swear that liquid SARMs work better, but there’s no evidence to back this up. Seeing as how capsules are safer to ship, keep longer, and are generally easier to transport and use, we can see why most people choose capsulated SARMs when they have the choice.

3 Benefits Of SARMs In Capsule or Pill Form

1 They protect the raw ingredients

Capsules protect the potency of the raw ingredients and ensure you get a consistent dose every time. Active ingredients can lose their strength in liquids.

2 They digest a little slower

You might think this sounds like a bad thing, but it’s best if your SARMs supplement stays in the stomach for a short while before it is absorbed into the body.

3 No extra ingredients

This about it – liquid SARMs need some added gradients as a carrier and to keep the liquid palatable. Capsules and pills don’t need any of that because you swallow the capsule without smelling or tasting the ingredients inside.

Liquid Vs Capsule SARMs: Pros & Cons

Capsules and pills have a better shelf life, easier to use and generally have more consistency of the active ingredient. Liquid allows the researcher to easily make micro incrementations of the doses.

Remember, most manufacturers would prefer to sell SARMs in capsule form (and capsules are probably easier for you to take, too). The main reason you will find SARMs as a liquid is that the manufacturer might be being ultra-careful about how their product is viewed from a legal perspective (capsules tend to suggest this is meant for human consumption as a food supplement or medicine).

Whatever you choose, remember the potency levels of the raw ingredient doesn’t change whether you take them inside of a capsule, or as a liquid.
