Ever wonder how Hulk Hogan came to look like a hulk when he was still in his prime wrestling years? Sure, he could have gotten those bulging muscles from lifting weights or from doing intensive exercise programs but, was that all it took? Or did he have help in another form by way of taking food supplements, steroids, prohormones or even SARMs?
In the world of supplements today, there are numerous products that claim to help the body work its way to achieving rapid muscle growth, increase in muscle mass, gains in muscle strength and prolonging ones stamina. Some supplements even have the benefit of improving bone health of osteoporosis patients. These promises could have driven any wrestler, bodybuilder, athletes and body fitness enthusiast to pursue the use of supplements to hasten their much wanted results without second thoughts. One would immediately think of how enormous and impressive their bodies will be if they use these products.
In a website dedicated to bodybuilding, it is recommended to take supplements while doing regular workouts, and some of these supplements are:
- Protein Powder, for building muscles with the help of amino acids;
- Creatine, so the energy stored in the muscles would stay longer;
- Glutamine, to assist in the healing of broken muscles as well as to improve the immune system;
- Weight Gain Powder, for, obviously, weight gain because of the extra fat calories and carbohydrates in the ingredients;
- Growth Hormone Boosters, so the muscles could continue its growth even as the body ages; and
- Anabolic Supplements, to boost testosterone secretion that could have positive effects to the muscles
Prohormones, steroids and SARMs are some examples of anabolic supplements available in the market today. But while all are potent products, the SARMs selection is said to be favored by more users since it is said to be less toxic to the body therefore there are fewer side effects.
Aside from the health risk brought by prohormones and steroids, which is a factor people consider when they buy SARMs instead of the other two, SARMs have medical benefits as well. SARMs are said to increase bone density which is great news for patients with bone issues. Another notable benefit for using SARMs is that they do not convert to estrogen thus there is no risk of gynecomastia or the enlargement of breast in men.
Selective Androgen Receptor Moderators (SARMs) are also great for producing lean muscles, cutting fat and gaining strength. For fitness enthusiasts that are looking for a leaner physique, SARMs is the better choice over other hormonal supplements.
However as of today, supplement companies are still in the research and development stage of SARMs. Until these are proven safe for humans, beware of the SARMs supplements being sold everywhere. Some websites do sell SARMs but they are for research use only because it’s in their pure chemical form. So if not careful, one could buy SARMs that are useless and toxic to humans.
But to give an idea on what are available in the market, there is the MK-2866 Andarine and the less popular MK-677. Users can usually buy SARMs through online offerings but there is no certainty of their legitimacy so research, research, research!
Finally before one dives into the world of supplement use, it must be impressed that when there are benefits, however ambitious they are, there are also risks.
If one should pursue to buy SARMs and/or other forms of hormone supplements, don’t rush. Take time to learn about the product you want to use so there won’t be any regrets after. Health is more important than showing off those muscles.
