WHAT IS THIS ‘NEW THING’?
Ostarine is just one of the other various selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) being developed to serve different medical purposes. Also known as enobosarm, GTx-024, or MK-2866, it is a mild SARM wherein its effects are highly dependent on the dosage.
SARMs aid in different medical conditions specifically those involving bone and muscle loss such as sarcopenia (loss of skeletal muscle) and osteoporosis (becoming extremely porous of the bones), and even type II diabetes. What it does is that it targets the androgens in the body specifically those found in the bone and muscle. Those androgens are the ones responsible for the anabolism regulation in the bones and muscles as well as in the regulation of the body fat mass for both men and women.
The body’s production of androgen decreases with age. This then results to an increase in muscle and bone loss such as those conditions aforementioned. Primarily, ostarine was developed for the prevention of the wasting of the muscles and the bones in the body such as sarcopenia. With that it has been proven in various clinical tests or studies that through its use, it can contribute to the increase in one’s lean body mass (LBM) and an increase in muscle. Because of this there are a few brands who even sell it as a dietary supplement.
CAN IT BE USED FOR OTHER PURPOSES?
Aside from serving to different medical purposes, ostarine has also been creating a buzz in the bodybuilding world. Among the other SARMs developed out there and becoming of use to those in the industry, it is considered as the most popular one. This is due to the fact that it provides almost the same effects that the steroid does, which some bodybuilders use but with little to no side effects compared.
WHAT MAKES IT BETTER?
Just like the different anabolic steroids available out in the market, ostarine can produce the same outcomes with little to no side effects at all. Even if that is the case, it is not in any way a type of steroid and the outcomes may be visible at a slower pace since as already mentioned, it is mild and its effectiveness is highly dependent on the dosage.
IS IT SAFE?
Compared to steroids out there, being a SARM, it only selects or targets the androgens found in the muscle and bones and not those in the other organs of the body. It thus eliminates the chances of having oversized or even ruptured organs.
It also does not make use of methyl alcohol or a methyl group as one of its components or ingredients. This then makes the substance not toxic to the liver. Even so, there is still no assurance that it would not have any effects on one’s blood pressure but if it would, it only has little effects.
CAN BOTH MEN AND WOMEN USE IT?
The thing with ostarine is that with its capability to be selective on the androgen receptors that it targets, it brings no negative effect on the adrenal glands which primarily are responsible for the production of the natural hormones in the body, thus making it quite safe to be of use of both men and women. Other than that, its androgenic effects or those producing masculine characteristics are kept at a minimum making it better for the use of the women.
Even if this new drug or substance generate a lot of benefits to our body and gives off little to no side effects at all compared to others whose purpose is the same, it must still be kept in mind that all must have a limit. Consultation with experts and further research must always be considered to avoid any undue complications.
