MK-2886 has a half-life of 24 hours. Each dose should be taken ONCE per day.
Doesn't have androgenic properties in non-muscle tissue.
MK-2886 is fully side effect free. The only threat is that it's possible to experience some mild natural test shut down in cycles over 4 weeks, but the time between cycles are only 4 weeks.
For Recomping , Suggested dosing is 12.5-25 mg for 4-8 weeks.
Ostarine is an orally active nonsteroidal SARM developed by GTx, Inc. A 12-week double-blind, placebo-controlled phase II clinical trial on 120 healthy elderly men (60+ years old) and postmenopausal women showed that Ostarine significantly increased lean body mass, improved physical function, and improved insulin sensitivity.
In the fitness industry users typically take Ostarine during bulking and recomposition phases. During bulking phases some users report 7lb increases in lean body mass in just 8 weeks and users report decreased fat mass and slight increases in muscle and strength.
A compound that offers both fat loss, muscle gain, and strength gain benefits sounds extremely appealing to athletes looking to take their performance to the next-level. However, Ostarine does have two significant side effects – HPG axis suppression and elevated estradiol levels; both of which users report can be remedied with a 3-week PCT. If you do decide to take Ostarine, it’s extremely important that you follow the directions on the label and perform the PCT to mitigate further, more serious side effects.
Ostarine is a potent and tissue-selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) for treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting and osteoporosis. These patent products for research purposes only use. Ostarine (GTx-024, MK-2866, Enobosarm, S-22) is an orally bioavailable nonsteroidal selective androgen receptor modulator. Therefore, ostarine can be used for treatment of conditions such as muscle wasting and osteoporosis.
Ostarine belongs to a class of chemicals know as SARMs or selective androgen receptor modulators. SARMs create selective anabolic activity at certain androgen receptors. In comparison to testosterone and other anabolic steroids, the advantage of SARMs, is they do not have androgenic activity in non-skeletal muscle tissues (less side effects). Ostarine is effective in maintaining and increasing lean body mass. SARMS such as Ostarine cannot be aromatized, concentrating all their effects to AR binding and not to metabolic conversion into androgens/estrogens.
What are SARMs (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators)?
Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (abbreviation: SARMs) are newly discovered molecules which bind to specific androgen receptors in the human body (for example bone and muscle tissue). They produce similar effects to anabolic steroids but are very specific in their action and thus not producing the various undesirable side effects associated with steroids.
In contrast to steroids, which are usually injected, SARMs are delivered orally. They provide the opportunity to design regimens that selectively target the androgen receptors in different tissues. Only the ones which are the target of the therapy will respond as they would to testosterone, while the rest of the body is unaffected. Many SARM types exist (aryl propionamides, quinolinones, bicyclic hydantoins, quinolines), though aryl propionamides such as ostarine, andarine/S-4, and S-23 are the most advanced SARMs so far.
Oral SARMs vs. Injectable steroids:
An important advantage of Selective Androgen Receptor Modlators is that they are all orally active without causing liver damage, while most anabolic steroids must be injected. Those anabolic steroids which are orally active tend to cause liver damage with time. SARMs are safer in this regards.
Actual effects of Ostarine:
increase in overall muscle strength and performance
decrease in body fat
increase in lean muscle (without water retention)
increased libido (with oral tablet form)
increased bone density and strength
improved mobility in tendons, ligaments and joints
