Increases lean body mass, Improves performance, Enhances libido, Increases quality of life
Ostarine, better known as MK-2866, is an SARM (aelective androgen receptor modulator) that offers the benefits of avoiding, as well as treating, muscle wasting and osteoporosis. Extensive research also indicates that MK-2866 might eventually be able to prevent sarcopenia, atrophy, cachexia, and testosterone replacement therapy. These are great benefits, especially to individuals suffering from any muscle wasting diseases, and more so since ostarine has been shown to focus entirely on muscle tissue and bone. SARMs bring about selective anabolic activity and, unlike other anabolic and testosterone steroids, they do not have any impact on non-skeletal muscles.
As an SARM, ostarine plays a vital role not only in maintaining but also increasing lean body mass. It works by binding to certain androgen receptors resulting in an increase in nitrogen retention in the body, and growth in protein synthesis, hence building muscles without oestrogen conversion. Ostarine can be said to be the most anabolic SARM which means that it is best suited for lean muscle gain. Though total weight gain cannot be compared to that of steroids, more importantly, overall gains are almost entirely lean muscle. For an athlete, the use of ostarine (MK-2866) equals: improved performance, better strength, increased endurance, improved libido, an increase in lean body mass, stimulation of testosterone’s activities in the skin and prostate, joint healing abilities, and fat loss all the while having lower tendencies of unwanted side effects.
Ostarine is also effective for losing body fat (cutting) since it allows a user to cut calories without fear of losing muscles and strength due to its muscle protection properties. The effects of ostarine are actually beneficial in both the bulking and cutting phases, but the results will usually stand out more when used during the cutting phase.
