LGD-4033, also called Ligandrol or Anabolicum, was developed by the pharmaceutical Ligand (hence the name), with the goal in mind to promote healing properties in the body as well as stimulating positive activity in bones and muscles. He’s one of the better-studied SARMs. It’s been through multiple human trials, with interesting results. From these trials, the results have shown increases in lean body mass and decreases in body fat. There is also a significant increase in strength, well-being, as well as healing possibilities.
In studies, healthy men who took LGD-4033 for 21 days saw a significant increase in lean body mass. One milligram per day was enough to cause significant muscle growth. The higher the dose, the more muscle participants put on. In another trial, participants took doses as high as 22 mg/day with no side effects or safety issues.
In studies with rats, LGD-4033 increases bone density, muscle mass, and sex drive, without damaging prostate or liver tissue.
LGD-4033 does stimulate fat loss, so it will make you more muscular and leaner. It also stimulates the central nervous system (CNS) so it helps increase strength and performance.
GW-1516 also named Cardarine was created by Glaxo Smith and Ligand Pharmaceuticals in 1992.
Cardarine (GW-1516) is hands down the best compound out there to increase your physical performance. Not only does it give you an insane endurance boost, but it also has great fat burning properties. There is a reason why so many top athletes choose to use Cardarine.
To give you an example of the success obtainable with Cardarine is the well-known case of Elena Lashmanova, who tested positive for Cardarine after breaking the 20 km race walk world record. Because Cardarine was abused by various athletes in different sports, the WADA chose to ban the compound in 2009. Overall Cardarine is an excellent and powerful compound to use.
In mice, the GW-1516 combined with 4 weeks of regular racing increased race time by 68% and stroke distance by 70%, and doubled overall muscular endurance. In rodents, GW-1516 plus exercise has increased mitochondrial growth in muscle by ~ 50%, allowing muscles to generate more power without fatigue. It has also decreased fat while preserving muscle. GW-1516 could be a powerful way to improve performance and lose fat while maintaining muscle.
