Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are compounds providing effects similar to the anabolic steroids. Compared to steroids they are safer options. But a more detailed study will be needed to form more conclusive conclusions. Steroids have synthetics forms of testosterone.
Whereas the SARMs mimic the effects of testosterone which are naturally created in the body. SARMs bind with the receptors in the body especially with the muscle growth causing receptors. They eventually promote muscle hypertrophy and other anabolic benefits after they have binded the receptors. Thus the body remains in the muscle repair and growth state.
When compared to steroids, SARMs are safer as they do not affect a person’s health and only signal the muscles to grow. Steroids on the other hand tease the hormones of the body eventually becoming toxic for the body parts like liver, increasing BP and raising the levels of cholesterol. SARMs are more potent than BCAAs or creatine as they are known to block specific receptors and stimulate others.
As included in several SARMs reviews, without disturbing the body and its functions, SARMs help the bones and muscles grow. The conclusive results on the same are still awaited and that’s the reason the World Anti-Doping Agency has banned the use of SARMs in athletic competitions.
SARMs are a safer alternative than steroids offering excellent results but one cannot still say that they are free of all the risks. The healthcare professional can inform you how you can add the SARMs to your fitness regime. The dosage will depend on a body’s overall health.
