Oral tablets (SARM)
Ostarine is a tentative drug mainly used by athletes and bodybuilding enthusiasts. Even though it has yet to be approved by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for certain safety reasons and has deemed them illegal, this has not stopped it from being predominantly used in the market.
In the medical world, Ostarine, also known by its research name MK-2866, is considered to be a part of the selective androgen receptor modulator class of drugs.
Taking Ostarine can significantly improve lean body mass. This makes it a go-to for people suffering from conditions like cachexia or muscle wasting syndrome due to cancer and other auto-immune disorders. It has also shown promising results for the treatment of inherited muscle loss or weakness disorders, more commonly known as muscular dystrophy. While Ostarine is currently being researched by Viking Therapeutics for the treatment of muscle-wasting in cancer patients, many bodybuilders take it to put on muscle mass, enhance their fat loss speed, and increase strength while on bulking and cutting cycles.
