S4 (Andarine)

Andarine belongs to the class of SARMs – selective androgen receptor modulators. Today it is popularly used by athletes who seek to get all of the strength benefits and lean muscle gains without the harmful side effects observed with anabolic steroids.

Andarine is the least anabolic, yet most androgenic of the SARMS. S4 is said to be the most potent SARM which helps sustain lean muscle mass while stimulating fat elimination at the same time.

Andarine is also used as part of steroid stacks to improve a cycle without adding more side effects or aromatization.

Andarine also has the ability to help oxidize fat and keep your body from going catabolic while on a low calorie diet. It will provide a hard, dry, lean look and increase vascularity. It provides notable strength and endurance even while in caloric deficit, and, at higher doses, it can even add hard muscle to your frame.

Any other SARM stacks wonderfully with andarine, and the results will be compounded due to their synergistic effects.

The typical dosage is 50-75mg total per day, taken in the morning and in the evening in split dosages. Optimum length of Andarine cycles are said to be up to 8 weeks long.

Ostarine or S-4 possesses same properties as anabolic steroids with same ability to fuel the androgen receptors and hence producing the similar results as that produced by anabolic steroids. Though it is not an anabolic steroid but it is far better when it comes to the results. It increases muscle mass and bone density in its users and this is the reason it is used by patients of osteoporosis and AIDS, the diseases that are known to waste muscles and weaken bones in the affectees. Among body builders SARMS S-4 has become very popular and many have tried it without being affected by the side effects. As for its dosage different athletes have tried different dosages out of which 100 mg before workouts is found to work the best whereas 100 mg on days when there are no workouts. It can be used along with steroids or as stand-alones and are mostly used by athletes in pre-contest cycles.

Usage


Andarine is an investigational selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) developed by GTX, Inc for treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting, osteoporosis and benign prostatic hypertrophy, using the non-steroidal androgen antagonist bicalutamide as a lead compound.

Andarine is an orally active partial agonist for androgen receptors. It is less potent in both anabolic and androgenic effects than other SARMs. In an animal model of benign prostatic hypertrophy, andarine was shown to reduce prostate weight with similar efficacy to finasteride, but without producing any reduction

Effect

  Andarine binds incredibly well to the androgen receptors of bone and muscle. While it doesn’t tend to impress in terms of building pounds upon pounds of muscle like trenbolone will, it has amazing effects on fat loss. Why? Andarine is the least anabolic, yet most androgenic of the SARMS. When androgenic hormones or sarms attach to the androgen receptors in your adipose tissue or fat (yes we have androgen receptors in our fat too) they trigger fat oxidation.

This SARM is selective and shows no noticeable prostate activity. Andarine proved to be poor at building muscle tissue at lower doses, but it did, in fact, build lean hard muscle tissue at higher doses. These tissue gains have often been compared to that of winstrol or anavar, but, of course, without the associated androgenic side effects. Andarine is especially outstanding at strengthening, preserving and even building bone mass.
 
Andarine’s exceptional ability to help oxidize fat and keep your body from going catabolic while on a low calorie diet is its specialty. It will provide a hard, dry, lean look and increase vascularity. It provides notable strength and endurance even while in caloric deficit, and, at higher doses, it can even add hard muscle to your frame. Any other SARM stacks wonderfully with andarine, and the results will be compounded due to their synergistic effects. A stack of Andarine and ostarine (mk-2866), for example, would provide results arguably comparable to a stack of testosterone and winstrol. Again, SARMS are not steroids, and they provide less androgenic and anabolic effects as actual steroids, but the effects are very similar. Andarine can also be used by itself and provide fantastic results.
