According to the few studies in which the researchers tested SARMs for side effects, SARMs appear to show side effects that strongly resemble the side effects of anabolic steroids. In a study by the producer of SARM GTx, in which men took 3 milligrams of ostarine three times daily, the cholesterol level deteriorated slightly and the researchers found signs of minor liver damage. In addition, the natural production of testosterone decreased. The opposite was that the guinea pigs accumulated a pound and a half of muscle mass and lost some of our body fat.
Side effects have been relatively mild, but research is bad news for ostarine users in the sport. And that has everything to do with the next point. You can read more about it from the SARMs reviews.
In supplements, SARMs are in megadoses
In the study we have just discussed, the researchers were testing a dose of 3 milligrams of ostarine per day. Most ostarine supplements contain 10 milligrams per capsule and the producer recommends 2 to 4 per day. Another example: LGD-4033, according to many SARM users, one of the most powerful SARMs currently available, has been tested in humans at a dosage of 1 milligram per day. But if you buy LGD-4033 as a supplement, there are usually 3 to 5 milligrams in a capsule – and the producer will advise you 2 to 3 a day.
Supplement users, therefore, place 10 to 15 times more SARMs on their bodies than the doses the inventors imagine. Do SARMs still have so few side effects at such doses? Are they still ‘safe’? If you ask this question, you have already answered it.
