Frequently asked questions
Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are a class of therapeutic compounds that have similar properties to anabolic agents, but with reduced androgenic properties. This property allows SARMs the advantage of androgen-receptor specificity, tissue selectivity, and the lack of steroid-related side effects. Some potential side effects of anabolic steroid use include acne, liver damage, breast tissue development, and shrinking of the testicle in males, and deepening of the voice, growth of hair on the face, stomach, upper back, and abnormal menstrual cycles in females. SARMs have the ability to differentiate between anabolic and androgenic activities, and this provides the potential for therapeutic opportunities in a variety of medical conditions including muscle-wasting diseases, osteoporosis, cancer, and hypogonadism
SARMs are similar to steroids, but they are not one and the same. Both work by binding to your androgen receptors, triggering changes in your DNA which increase your muscles’ ability to grow. But steroids are a blunt tool – they can also impact other parts of the body, leading to side effects such as prostate issues, hair loss and acne. SARMs, however, are said to be "tissue selective" – they target your muscles without setting off this same chain of reactions.
Any substances when used incorrectly or abused can be harmful. Potential side effects are possible with any pharmacological substance and these effects depend on the particular substance, dosage, duration of usage and the user. When used correctly, potential side effects can be minimized or negated, and mild side effects should subside and resolve shortly after cessation of use. If you are unsure of proper usage, please contact us for recommended direction of use, and consult your physician before use.
