People have tried numerous ways to increase muscle mass in hopes of creating the ideal body build, whether for health reasons or for professional sports. Along with intensive workout regimens, various methods have been tried to help build up muscle bulk, from high protein, low carbohydrate-diet to newer methods of improving muscle growth.

The controversy on performance-enhancing drugs

Recently, the use of SARMs (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) have been quite popular as means to increase muscle mass. There have been a number of SARMs for sale available for purchase online. The use of performance-enhancing drugs has been quite controversial, especially in professional sports. And usually the first-thing that comes into people’s minds about this subject are steroids.

Steroid and prohormones side effects

Steroids have this negative connotation due in part to the side effects it causes when used. There have been cases where people who have used steroids and prohormones to help build up body mass have experienced acne breakouts and even gynecomastia, or enlargement of breast tissues in males, along with other harmful side effects such as liver failure.

Benefits of SARMs over steroids

Unlike steroids however, SARMs act selectively towards androgen receptors, resulting in an improved muscle growth without the nasty side effects. Though research on SARMs are quire limited, there is promising future surrounding it.

It has been observed that SARMs are as effective in promoting muscle gain and burning fats as steroids but without the harmful effects. This is because SARMs only binds selectively to androgens receptors in muscle and bone tissues, promoting and faster and more stable muscle building process.

Other benefits of SARMs use

Other benefits of SARMs include prevention of muscle loss, especially during cutting period. When someone is on cutting period while doing intensive workout regimens, they not only burn fats but muscle tissues as well. With SARMs and its effect on muscle development, muscle loss is prevented which further helps in muscle development goals.
