SARMS UK in future medicine

SARMs or selective androgen receptor modulators have a plethora of benefits. They have been widely used in various treatments for over sixty years now. There are two types of SARMs, steroidal and non-steroidal. Steroidal SARMs have been around for almost a century now but became quite popular in late eighties and earlier nineties among bodybuilders, athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The steroid has been widely studied and almost all major international sporting organizations have banned its use. Professional athletes and sportspersons cannot take steroidal SARMs in UK or anywhere else in the world if they want to complete in the Olympics, FIFA and other major federations organized sporting events.

However, the non-steroidal SARMs such as ostarine are a different story. For almost thirty years, numerous studies have been undertaken including clinical testing and research to study the impacts of non-steroidal SARMs. No serious side effect has been found till date. Does that make SARMs more acceptable now in future medicine?


An Overview of SARMs

SARMs are selective androgen receptor modulators. The SARMs used through the forties and over the subsequent decades were steroids unlike Ostarine. They were used to treat osteoporosis, hypogonadism and certain types of cancer. The SARMs that are being considered for use in future medicine are non-steroidal. Both steroidal and non-steroidal SARMs have a positive impact on musculoskeletal health. They can prevent bone and muscle wasting. However, the two have substantially different side effects, primarily because of the way they work inside our body.

Steroidal SARMs have the ability to target cells and enable protein synthesis. Non-steroidal SARMs such as ostarine also have the same effect. The difference is in the number of cells or the types of cells that the SARMs target. Steroidal SARMs target all cells. They don’t differentiate between the cells that must have better protein synthesis and the cells that must not. Not all cells need to be unlocked to prevent bone and muscle wasting, or even to reverse the same. Non-steroidal SARMs have the ability to target the cells that need to be unlocked, letting the other cells be as they are.

This helps in the elimination of the side effects that are associated with steroidal SARMs, such as excessive conversion of estrogen as is the case in gynecomastia which leads to puffy and sensitive nipples in males, damage to kidneys & liver and a decrease in libido. Steroidal SARMs also have the ability to change your DNA.

Potential health benefits of SARMS?

Non-steroidal SARMs are protein based. They are designed to target the cells that can prevent bone and muscle wasting, thereby reversing the effects of such a condition. These SARMs can help in the development of muscle and increase bone density. They also help in retaining the increased mass and bone density in the target areas. Non-steroidal SARMs also help bodybuilders, athletes and sportspersons. There is no scientific study that has been able to find even one serious side of consuming non-steroidal SARMs orally or being injected with a recommended dose. This has led to the widespread advocating of using SARMs such as ostarine in future medicine. The only shortcoming of non-steroidal SARMs is that they must be used for a longer period of time than its steroidal brethren to have a desired impact. This is not a major concern though since any medicine is recommended for regular use as per the dosage.

SARMs have the ability to retain muscle mass and bone density. Every human being suffers loss of mass in muscles and bones. This is caused by ageing. One of the first casualties in musculoskeletal anatomy is the type 2 fibers in our muscles. This gradually limits the physical strength, agility and endurance of a person. Physical infirmities are thus a direct consequence of ageing. Non-steroidal SARMs can help retain the mass in muscles and density in bones, thereby helping avert a plethora of physiological health problems.


The popular SARMs in UK are ostarine, also known as MK-2866, LGD-4033, RAD140 and andarine or S4. Andarine has some side effects and is not the most ideal of SARMs. LGD-4033 is potent. It helps reduce fat and enhances growth of lean mass. RAD140 helps with muscle growth and is being explored for its effects on Alzheimer. Ostarine is one of the most effective SARMs to prevent and reverse muscle wasting.


SARMs are not toxic. They don’t cause any damage to liver or kidneys. They can prevent bone loss, reduce the chances of developing prostate problems and do not lead to the conversion of estrogen while having similar effects as those of testosterone. SARMs improve strength, agility and endurance. They prevent loss of muscles and help with muscle growth. You would lose fat and develop lean muscles. SARMs such as ostarine help with recovery from injuries. They can heal joint aches and other inflammations. SARMs can target the right tissues or cells, reduce the chances of division of cancer cells and regulate healthy levels of libido.
