WHAT ARE SARMS
To understand SARMs, you need to understand anabolic steroids, and the effects they have on the body.
Anabolic steroids cause the body to increase its production of testosterone which allows the body to build muscle more quickly. Of course, anabolic steroids have a variety of negative side effects that come with their use. These side effects can take place in the form of addiction, modification of secondary sex characteristics and damage to the organs.
Testosterone interacts with every organ in the body, and the increased activity from anabolic steroid use can lead to organ failure. The root of these side effects comes from steroids having an anabolic to androgenic ration of 1:1, which means the whole body’s activity is increased rather than just the parts responsible for muscle growth.
SARMs are supplements which are far less dangerous than anabolic steroids, and mor effective in their intended purpose. The anabolic-to-androgenic ratio for SARMs starts at 3:1 and goes as high as 90:1, which means they focus directly on muscle growth.
ADVANTAGES OF LGD X
There are countless reasons why you should turn to LGD X instead of steroids. Here are just a few:
Oral dosing – SARMs like LGD X can be ingested orally, which makes managing doses incredibly easy.
LGD X use can improve stamina and strength, The supplement does this by speeding up the rate at which your body synthesizes proteins.
You can lose fat faster thanks to LGD X disrupting catabolic activity. Normally, the body will burn muscle tissue for energy when it runs out of calories, but LGD X protects those tissues, forcing the body to consume fat instead,
The preservation of muscle tissue also helps combat the effects of diseases, like cancer, that usually damage muscles.
STUDIES AND SIDE EFFECTS
Ligandrol is developed by Viking Therapeutics which has performed a two-phase trial with positive results.
The first phase was conducted on 76 male adults who took varying doses of LGD-4033. Dosages administered were either 0.1mg, 0.3mg, or 1mg. There were also placebo pills. The test measured the effect of LGD-4033 on muscle mass and strength.
The second phase is focused on LGD4033 effects on those who suffer from muscle atrophy. This phase is has not yet concluded.
LGD X does not have nearly as dire side effects as anabolic steroids though some people have reported feeling some of the following effects:
Headaches, muscle pumps; nausea; fatigue;
As these reports come from personal testimonies and not clinical trials, it’s important to not take them at face value. It’s possible the individuals did not purchase the supplement from an authentic source. Furthermore, the dosage that these individuals have taken is unknown.
Viking Therapeutics has admitted that the supplement has some small side effects, but these effects are not serious, and they are completely reversible.
Goal Dosage SARMS That Stack Well
Bulking 5-10mg/day for 8 weeks N/A
Recomposition 5-8mg/day for 8 weeks Cardarine
Ligandrol may decrease total testosterone, free testosterone, and SHBG, so a full PCT is recommended. Dosages above 5mg/day may decrease HDL and total testosterone values to unhealthy levels.
