Introduction to SARMs
INTRODUCTION TO SARMs
SARMs (selective androgen receptor modulator) are a new class of performance enhancing compounds that are taking the fitness industry by storm. These compounds have the ability to increase muscle growth, fat loss and cardiovascular endurance.
Selective androgen receptor modulators is a compound that effects hormones in the body in a very specific way. They have similar positive effects on muscles and strength as anabolic steroids and pro-hormones, but without the common undesirable side effects caused by them. SARMS can block and stimulate key receptors in the body, which can maximize results, minimizing side effects. That is the main reason why athletes and bodybuilders are turning to SARMS to enhance performance and to promote changes in body composition.
SARMs display a high bioavailability, ensuring effectiveness and absorption. Androtech Research's SARMs can have an anabolic to androgenic ratio as high as 10:1, which results in a positive increase in muscle growth, bone density and fat loss, without significant increase in estrogen or shutting down the Hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPG axis).
UNDERSTANDING HOW SARMs AFFECTS HORMONES
The body is filled with hormones that perform different tasks. Hormones are chemical messengers created by the endocrine gland.
On the other hand, there are androgens, which are the counterparts to hormones. Androgens are responsible for regulating the development and maintenance of male characteristics such as facial hair, decreased body fat levels and increased muscle mass. Women also produce androgen, but in a very small amount and with different functions.
HOW SARMs WORK
Selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs) work by regulating and adjusting the body's androgens. For instance, Androtech Research's SARMs are designed to specifically bind to androgen receptors of muscles and bones.
When SARMs bind to androgen receptors, they can create anabolic effects similar to anabolic steroids, but since they do not stimulate estrogen conversion, it does not cause undesirable side effects like AAS.
WHY CHOOSE SARMs OVER AAS
Androtech Research's SARMs are non toxic to the liver and have little to no effect on blood pressure, eliminating the need for post cycle therapy (PCT), which is not the case when using AAS.
Another advantage of SARMs over AAS is that SARMs does not convert estrogen, and therefore does not cause side effects, plus during a SARM cycle water retention is significantly lower compared to AAS.
