HOW IT WORKS
Ostarine binds to the androgen receptors just like anabolic steroids do, but it does this selectively, which means that it has considerably less side effects.
A 12 week double blind placebo controlled phase II clinical trial was conducted on ostarine, which showed that ostarine increased lean muscle mass and improved physical function without the negative side effects seen with testosterone or other anabolic steroids.
Ostarine was developed mainly for the treatment of muscle wasting and osteoporosis. Nonetheless, it also retains nitrogen and strengthens the joints. Therefore, it is a very versatile compound in matters of health benefits.
Ostarine works like anabolic steroids do, but with way less side effects, and almost no suppression. In fact, blood work has shown that ostarine will suppress the HPTA (hypothalamic pituitary testicular axis) by only 10-20% vs. 95%seen with anabolic steroids. Hence, you can use ostarine as an additional or solo compound not only during your cycle, but also for post cycle therapy (PCT), and even the bridging phase. This makes ostarine a very versatile compound for the athlete.
Women will find ostarine to be a much safer alternative to anabolic steroids because it won’t cause facial hair, enlarged clitoris, or other masculine traits.
Furthermore, ostarine is also popular among powerlifters and bodybuilders due to its ability to strengthen bones and joints.
