Ostarine, the bone healer & muscle builder.

What is Ostarine ?

Ostarine or MK-2866 is a SARM (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) that was developed by GTx laboratories as a potential therapeutic aid to help prevent muscle wasting caused by cancer.

How does Ostarine work in the body?

Ostarine binds to specific androgen receptors in muscle and bone tissues. Androgen receptors are then signaled to receive hormones like testosterone, DHT and estrogen. 

Once these receptors become stimulated, Ostarine then imitates the action of testosterone in the body.

Think of it as a key to open up your androgen receptors. 

What are the effects of Ostarine? 

Ostarine has been shown to have a variety of benefits in different scenarios.

Increase Lean Muscle: 

In a clinical trial that lasted 12-weeks, 120 healthy but elderly individuals were given a surprisingly low dose of Ostarine. They gained lean muscle mass and reported an overall improvement in their fitness levels. The dose was just 3 mg/day. Bodybuilders use up to 25mg/day and have reportedly gained up to 8 lbs. of clean, hard muscle in a 12-week cycle. These are  results that most people would live with any day.

A lot of users of Ostarine have reported an increase in lean muscle within a faster period of time coupled with a specific diet plan for lean muscle gains. 

Muscle Retention: 

Muscle retention is one of the key factors when using Ostarine. You will lose very little of what you gain during the 12-week cycle. That makes it one of the best off-steroid cycle drugs or post PCT compounds you can experiment with.

Better Bone Density and Health: 

Ostarine helps improve bone strength and bone density which in turn reduces the risk of fractures. 

Better lipid profile:

Ostarine helps to reduce LDL and Triglycerides. Although, the downside is that it also can reduce HDL levels. Cardarine GW-501516 on the other hand can be a great partner when experimenting with Ostarine.

Insulin Resistance: 

Ostarine may one day be a safer alternative for anti-diabetes drugs like Metformin. It helps improve insulin resistance and reduces blood sugar levels. 

How to use Ostarine?

The recommended dose of XLR8 BIOTECH's Ostarine is 20mg/day for a bulking or a cutting cycle in men. Women can use a lower dose of up to 10mg/day. 

Ostarine can be stacked with almost any other SARM or anabolic steroid due to its well-rounded profile. 

You can also use it as a PCT drug or to bridge steroid cycles to maintain the hard earned muscle. 

A typical Ostarine muscle building cycle lasts 12 weeks. There might be minimal suppression. But it’s not severe enough to warrant a full-fledged PCT.

You may want to include Clomiphene or Anastrozole to be on the safer side.
