What are SARMs?


Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, or SARMs, are synthetic drugs designed to have effects similar to those of testosterone. SARMs are still in the research and testing stages for various medical conditions but have not yet been approved for any other use. Despite that, SARMs are readily available online and often marketed as “legal steroids,” “steroid alternatives” or for “research only.”

Are SARMs safe or legal?

Although SARMs sometimes are sold in products marketed as dietary supplements, the FDA has stated that they are unapproved for human use. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) prohibit SARMS for use in sport.

If you’re considering using SARMs, think again! Such products pose significant health and readiness risks, plus Ostarine and similar SARMs might cause positive results if you’re tested for steroids. Importantly, the use of SARMs might also interfere with the natural release of your own testosterone.

Some of the ingredient names to watch out for on dietary supplement product labels and websites include but are not limited to:
• Andarine (S4)
• Enobosarm (Ostarine, MK-2866)
• Ligandrol (LGD-4033)
• RAD140 (Testolone)

Watch out too for other experimental drugs such as Cardarine/GW-501516, Ibutamoren/MK-677, and YK11 that are sometimes marketed as SARMs. They’re not, but they’re still illegal for any use other than research.
