Recently there has been an increase in the use and sales of a type of drug called SARMs (Select Androgen Receptor Modulators). SARMs are drugs that were first invented by numerous pharmaceutical companies to help increase lean muscle mass in people that needed the increase for health reasons, like cancer and AIDS. SARMs can come in numerous types like. Ostarine, Lignadrol, Cardarine, SR9009, YK11, and RAD 140 are some of the names that SARMs can be sold under. All of these SARMs are still in the development stages by numerous legitimate pharmaceutical companies located in the US and globally. One cannot simply call up these pharmaceutical companies and buy SARMs. However, it was not long before people that were not sick started to experiment with them to increase their lean muscle mass. Numerous studies, even though they are far and few in between prove that SARMs work. SARMs like YK11, which is a SARM and a myostatin inhibitor work extremely well to increase muscle mass. But SARMS do not work like anabolic steroids.

They are not as powerful or do not build muscle mass at the extreme rate that anabolic steroids do. In addition, SARMs do not result in the extreme side effects like anabolic steroids do. Anabolic steroids can give one acne, cause aggression, and worst is gynecomastia. Users of SARMs do not report any of these side effects. And that is why SARMs are so popular today and why their use is continuing to grow.

Reasons SARMs Are So Popular

1. SARMs are Legal The first reason SARMs are becoming so popular is that they are not illegal like anabolic steroids. If you buy anabolic steroid illegally and get caught you will face a heavy fine and possible jail time depending on how much you possess. Not only that but if you sell and distribute anabolic steroids you can possibly go to jail for a long time. SARMs, on the other hand, are not illegal like anabolic steroids. One can easily find a distributor on the internet and buy them domestically and have them shipped and delivered by UPS, USPS, or FedEx and not have to worry about being arrested. Not only that but you can buy as much as you want and not have to worry about selling them or giving them to friends.

2. SARMs are not as strong as anabolic steroids Without question, SARMs are not as strong as anabolic steroids. Most of the time when someone takes anabolic steroids, like testosterone cypionate or testosterone enthanate, they will gain around 10 lbs of muscle and possibly more. Not only that but anabolic steroids increase strength dramatically as well. One can go from bench pressing 185lbs to 250lbs in a very quick span of time and this is a clear sign that a person is using anabolic steroids. This is a dramatic change to someone's physique. Most of the time people will easily be able to tell that person is taking anabolic steroids. This will lead to embarrassment by the person taking steroids because they do not want to be accused of being a cheat. "Hey buddy, you obviously juicing!", someone may exclaim. This is a big turn off for alot of people because they do not want to be accused of taking anabolic steroids, especially if they are competing in a recreational sport. SARMs on the otherhand only produce very minimal gains for the recreational user. Most people only gain a couple of pounds when they take a SARM like Ostarine or sr9009. Therefore the gains are not noticeable to most people especially when the person using the SARM has their shirt on. However to the person using something like RAD 140, see the gains being made at home when they look in the mirror or take their shirt off. The gain in strength when using SARMs are also not as dramatic as steroids. A few gains in pounds on the bench is enough for the person using them but not noticeable to the people around him.

3. SARMs Side Effects Are Minimal Compared To Steroids SARMs have only been around for a few years, and it seems from people that are using them that they are not experiencing any side effects and the people that do experience side effects are experiencing very little. Anabolic steroid quickly gives people acne and bloating, which is noticeable right away. SARMs, on the other hand, do not, for the most part, give people these types of side effects. This makes it one of the most appealing characteristics. Nobody likes to experience side effects when using drugs. If people do experience side effects they are most likely going to discontinue their use. Because of this, people use SARMs more than once a year. In conclusion, SARMs are becoming more popular than steroids. In the future, once more research comes out on their safety and effectiveness, we are going to see more of an increase in their use by recreational athletes.
