Andarine is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) originally developed to treat muscle wasting diseases and osteoporosis. It has shown promise in preliminary animal studies where it effectively increased bone density, muscle mass, and strength. It is currently undergoing human clinical trials.
SARMs are drugs that bind to the androgen receptor (AR), but are selective in their actions. This prevents them from causing unwanted side effects such as hair loss, gynecomastia or water retention. Moreover, Andarine is regarded as having high oral bioavailability and great muscle building properties. Phase one human trials with this drug have reportedly been successful but no studies have been published.
How to use Andarine S4
There are numerous theories floating around on the best practice with S4 doses.
However, coming from personal experience and from tons of anecdotal incidents. We recommend that you start with a minimum dose of 20mg/day and then work your way up, keeping an eye on the sides as you go.
The maximum upper dose limit that we recommend is 50mg/day for not more than five days a week.
If you lift for five days, use it on those days only and stay off the S4 for two days no matter what contradictory information you read online from self-proclaimed SARM gurus.
Andarine S4 Half life and Detection
Andarine S4 Half life is only 4~6 hours. This means some users may want to dose it twice a day. This short half life can be advantageous in those who want to get rid of their vision side effects, since it will be out of your system much faster than other compounds.
It is unclear the exact detectable time but it should be about 2-4 weeks. It is banned in all major athletic leagues, so be careful if you are a tested athlete, as it is considered cheating.
Andarine S4 Side effects
Andarine (s-4) does not aromatize into estrogen at all, is not androgenic, and is only slightly suppressive of the pituitary glands. Due to the suppression, a mini-post cycle therapy is recommend to help with recovery. A simple way to do it is use hcgenerate ES for 4-8 weeks.
The one side effect that Andarine (s-4) has that makes it very unique is that it will attach slightly to androgen receptors which affect our eyes. What happens is you will notice a yellow tint when changing different lit rooms, or when waking up in the morning. This is not universal and is also dependent on the dosage you are using. Also, keep in mind it is temporary, and once you stop using it the issue will go away after a few days.
