A very important part of every athlete’s life is a proper diet and supplementation. By using appropriate supplements, athletes can achieve better results. However, some people decide to use so-called doping or steroids. However, such measures are dangerous to health and cause dangerous side effects. They are also illegal. There are, however, legal measures which are even attributed with magical properties with negligible side effects, namely SARMs.
SARMs, or selective androgen receptor modulators, are agents that have earned the nickname of modern doping. They increase muscle mass and/or support fat burning. Studies do not show that they cause more serious side effects, however, as new to the market, they have not yet been thoroughly tested. We also do not know about their long-term effects. However, they are certainly safer than steroid agents.
One of the most popular SARMs is ligandrol, or LGD-4033. It is one of the more thoroughly researched such measures. It significantly increases muscle mass, and helps to reduce body fat. Studies have shown that it does not affect the liver and prostate. However, a side effect of taking this agent may be a decrease in testosterone levels.
Another market leader in SARM is ibutamoren or MK-677. It has also been tested quite thoroughly for SARM. Its action is slightly different – it increases the secretion of growth hormone. It has proven to be extremely effective in obese people, increasing their energy requirements and allowing them to increase muscle mass and burn fat. Research shows that it also has a positive effect on, among other things, the quality of the skin and energy level in the recipient. It can also contribute to improving the quality of sleep.
