RAD 140 is a new SARM, kinda compared to the other SARMS being sold to the bodybuilding and sports nutrition community. It is very unique when compared to other SARMs. This article will compare RAD 140 with other SARMS.
RAD 140 was discovered back in 2010. Studies and research about this SARM are far and few in between. There is not much information in other words. Therefore the only thing we can rely on is essentially bro science and user reports on the internet. Kinda scary but that is all people have to go by if they want any information. You have all sorts of people published fake reviews and fake testimonials.
The results have been skewed in the past. The name RAD 140 comes from the company that has been developing called RADIUS health. They are a biotech company. Many people call it “RAD”, but the RAD actually stands for probably RAdius Health and therefore technically one should call it R.A.D. 140. As you can see by going to Radius health website, RAD 140 is in the pipeline of pharmaceuticals they are developing.
RAD 140 Research
RAD 140 is also known as Testolone. Testing was done on RAD 140 involving mice and monkeys and the results were pretty promising. What was found was that RAD 140, countered the prostate enlargement that is typically caused by the anabolic steroid, which makes it the perfect drug of choice to stack with anabolic steroids like Anadrol or Sustanon. When RAD 140 was given to monkeys there was a drastic increase in lean body weight during the administration period. And most notably the increase in lean mass was dosage dependent. Meaning the bigger the dose the more pronounced increase in lean mass and loss of fat tissue as well. So Test
Now, let’s talk about a little bit of research here that’s been going on now in the studies involving already 140, also known as test alone. As I pointed out, testing was carried out really mainly on mice and monkeys. All right. But the results of these studies are very promising. So just for an example here, it was proven that already 140 40 has a unique property of actually countering the prostate enlargement that’s caused by testosterone use was definitely makes it a perfect stacking agent for highly allergenic steroids that can cause this really, really undesirable effect. All right. Now, when tests alone was given to monkeys, there was a drastic increase in lean body weight during the administration periods. Now, the increase in lean mass was dosage dependent.
So with bigger doses, there was a more pronounced increase in lean mass and loss of fat tissues as well. The
How Does RAD 140 Work?
So how does it really work? Testolone has a selective mode of action which allows it to have an anaoblie effedct without the side effects that are usually seen with anabolic steroids. These side effects that are usually seen with anabolic steroids like Turinabol. These side effects can be things like prostate enlargement, suppression of testosterone production, possible hair loss, increased agggression, and increase acne.
RAD 140 interacts almost exclusively with the androgen receptors in teh muscle tissues and bones, but it does not appear to activate these receptors in other parts of the body. The result is that one gets a pronounced anabolic effect, but without the side effects and the heavy amounts of suppression, which opens new possibilities for medical applications of this instead of testosterone therapy. What’s more interesting, is due to the selective mode of action RAD 140 is supposedly safe for females to use becaues it will not cause virualization or clitoris enlargement.
RAD 140 vs. Testosterone Enthanate or Suspension
One cannot make the claim that RAD 140 is better than anabolic steroids from a bodybuilding outlook. But here are some things that show some differences.
The anabolic steroid is considered the perfect comparison template in terms of androgenic and anabolic efects of different compounds where a ratio of 100 to 100 is your baseline. So in this regard, RAD 140 has an impressive ratio of 90 to 1. Now this means that it’s almost as anabaolic as testosterone, just slighly under, but it lacks the androgenic effect, which is a very positive thing since most of the side effects associated to anabolic steroid use comes from that. Additionally it has been determined that you would need 40 percent more testosterone for the same muscle growth as with RAD 1 40. Yet it would take 60 times more of RAD 140 to even start showing prostate related side effects. However, this is just an opinion and theory and not FACT.
RAD 140 Neuroprotective Properties
Testosterone and DHT have the ability to preserve neurons and they have had some beneficial effects on neural health. It is not surprising that most neurodegenerative conditions out there, such as Alzheimer’s disease, they have androgenic deficiencies. But using considerable dosages of testosterone may pose other health threats in the long run. In the meantime, RAD 140 has been scientifically proven to exert the same effect in the brain, making it an extremely useful compound for the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases. In theory, RAD 140s will drastically reduce cell death after suffering a stroke. Now, all these neuroprotective properties do not carry an immediate benefit for bodybuilding purposes. However, they are a very welcoming trait to some users. Additionally, RAD 140 presents very good opportunities to those with muscle wasting diseases and other androgen deficiencies. Unlike anabolic steroids, patients can take advantage of the same positive effects while avoiding most of the undesirable side effects.
RAD 140 can logically render the benefits to an athlete without the cost of prominent side effects seen with anabolic steroids. Particularly RAD 140 will drastically improve one’s endurance and recovery, which will further lead to a considerable increase in lean muscle mass and strength. RAD 140 will be a great addition to any sort of an anabolic steroid cycle where it will give all these qualities without additional side effects. It can be successfully be used solo in a long cycle since it causes very light suppression supposedly.
RAD 140 Side Effects
This drug can have some side effects. From what we have been seeing they are far and few in between. Some users report a light suppression of normal testosterone production, but not nearly as much as anabolic steroids. One of the most notable side effects of anabolic steroids is estrogen increase. With RAD 140, users are reporting no conversion to estrogen, which I kinda have a hard time believing. In addtion, there are some increasing in cholesterol. Increase liver enzymes are also being reported, but very, very rare. Keep in mind that all of these side effects hat is being talked about in this article are from user reports and not scientific articles or research papers.
RAD 150 Dosage
RAD 140 should be taken once every 24 hours. For mean 20 to 30 milligrams per day. The cycle should last a person about 12 weeks or three months. Most RAD 140 is being sold in monthly bottles of 30 ml, so you would need about 3 bottles for a cycle. For females I would suggest 5 to 10 milligrams per day, which is about half the dose.
