Cardarine is a SARM that is also known as GW-501516. It was originally developed by researchers to prevent tumors. It was used to prevent these tumors in colon, prostate, and breast tissue.
After it was researched more, researches saw that it had many more benefits to offer its users than just the prevention of tumors.
Cardarine works by helping burn fat by preventing new fatty acid chains to form. This prevention means that your body has to use its existing fat stores rather than creating new fat stores to get energy from. It works to improve performance and recovery by getting your muscles to increase oxygen usage in its slow-twitch fibers.
Finally, it works to boost your energy output by binding to PPAR agonist receptors. PPAR agonists, or peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor agonists, are usually used to lower triglycerides and blood sugar when treating metabolic syndrome.
