I want to apologize in advance, my English is not very good, so you can notice spelling errors, but I hope you understand the essence of my post.
Sarms or "safe steroids" have recently begun to gain popularity. I think many of you have already heard about them, but few know what they are. Let's figure it out.
Since the advent of anabolic steroids and their research, people wanted to bring out a product that will also grow muscles, but without side effects, this is how Sarms appeared.
Selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMS) are often sold online as “safe steroids”, but experts say that science is still in its infancy and their long-term safety is unknown.Anabolic steroids are associated with liver damage and prostate cancer, so many bodybuilders have been looking for an alternative to increase muscle growth without side effects.Unlike other hormonal treatments, sarma affect muscle tissue specifically, so scientists hope they are a safer alternative.But, considering that they are still at the research stage, scientists cannot say whether they are safe for use in the general population.
The idea of sarms is that they mimic the effect of testosterone in the body, but unlike synthetic testosterone or anabolic steroids, they are directly targeted to skeletal muscle,” says Dr. Krissy Kendall, a professor at Edith Cowan University. “Anabolic androgenic steroids can affect any androgen receptor in the body — perhaps by acting on the brain, heart, reproductive organs, and liver, but sarma are “selective” for skeletal muscles. ”Sarms has been developed for use in people with medical conditions, such as cancer patients, who suffer from muscle loss due to chemotherapy and radiation. However, bodybuilders and gymnasts began to buy them online for injections, in the hope that this would help them easily increase muscle mass and strength. It sounds great in theory, but Dr. Kendall says that no one else knows for sure whether they work at all."Sarms show good results in sick people, helping to maintain and in some cases increase their muscle mass," she explains. "But it has been shown that this only affects muscle mass, and not physical function, so they do not necessarily become stronger or able to achieve more in everyday life."
In addition, Dr. Kendall said that the study did not confirm the presence of any dangerous side effects.
"There is no long-term safety data on Sarma,” she says.
"They are sold as a dietary supplement, but they do not fit this definition."
Given that sarma has not yet been clinically tested or approved as a drug in Australia, Europe or the United States, they need to be purchased online, and therefore, quality and safety are not fully regulated.“Of the chemicals sold online as sarma, about half of them don't actually contain the ingredients they sell, they have, or they don't contain the right amount, or they contain unapproved medicines that are banned,” says Dr. Kendall. "When you go out of the Internet, there is a high probability that you will not get what you pay for, and there is a risk that these products contain anabolic steroids or prohormones, so you risk damaging your liver and kidneys."
If you want to accelerate muscle growth, says Dr. Kendall, you have to do it the old-fashioned way — with enough calories, more protein, and time in the gym.
“Nobody wants to hear it, but muscle growth comes down to nutrition and exercise,” she says."You need more than 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight per day, and you need to train in large volumes with high intensity to increase the natural production of testosterone and growth hormone of your own body."
In conclusion, I can say that you should not use drugs that have been studied very little. When using such "miracle drugs" you can cause irreversible damage to your body.
Health to you, and to new meetings on the channel.
