Not all of us are blessed with the genes that allow the body to grow lean muscles. In fact, our evolution does not embrace big muscle growth since muscles are actually calorie-burning machines. It means that the more muscles we have, the more calories our body will need. From the energy efficiency perspective, having big muscles is actually a disadvantage. But that fact is contradictory to our aesthetic sense, isn’t it? And that is why humans will always try to cheat nature and make their own compound of muscle growth enhancer. And the best of what we’ve had so far is SARMs.
SARMs Are Gaining Popularity
First, you need to know that SARMs are probably the biggest hype drugs in the bodybuilding community right now. More and more people have testified how miraculous SARMs are even though they are not technically legal to consume. Taking SARMs is surely risky, but what is life without taking some risks? If we’re on the same page on that, then you should proceed to the next section below.
What Are SARMs?
SARMs stands for Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. As the name suggests, these compounds are intended to replicate the results of the androgenic drugs, but with more selective ability in their action. Previously, we have steroids for this purpose. But their impacts are so extensive they tend to harm the body’s vital organs. SARMs, on the other hand, can be administered specifically on particular parts of the body. And since our focus here is on muscle gain, you can use SARMs precisely to enhance muscle growth without damaging your other organs.
Who Can Use SARMs?
Note that these compounds are only legal for research purposes. It means that you are not supposed to get them outside laboratories. FDA does not approve SARMs. And you’ll also be disqualified from professional sports competitions if you have SARMs in your system. Therefore, now that you know these risks, you should administer SARMs for personal use only.
Moreover, if you’re pregnant or you have a medical history of complications, liver damage, kidney damage, or cancer, you should not take SARMs at all costs!
The Side Effects
SARMs are not without side effects. First, these compounds make your body produce DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a hormone responsible for causing baldness among men. But if you are female, you can be at risk of the same condition as well, especially if you take SARMs excessively. Second, SARMs are meant to be taken in cycles with PCT (Post-Cycle Therapy) supplements in between. If you don’t give your body a break, you may experience internal organ failures. And third, testicular atrophy is also a possible side effect after long term use.
