The FDA on October 23, 2017, sent a warning letter (WL #53541) to Panther Labs stating that the company’s distribution of LGD MAX and “Ostarine MK 2866” (another supplement manufactured by Panther) were in violation of the agency’s Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) because they contain SARMS, which have been linked to serious side effects including liver damage, heart attack, blood clots and death.

What is LGD MAX?
LGD MAX is a selective androgen receptor modulor, or SARM, initially developed for the prevention of muscle wasting diseases. LGD MAX is primarily used as a performance enhancing drug for muscle building, as its main benefit is helping with lean muscle gains. The product’s intended uses, according to the labeling, include “Physique Enhancing Agent” and “Mass Builder.”
What are the Ingredients?
According to the FDA Warning Letter, LGD MAX contains the following ingredients:
4-((R)-2-((R)-2,2,2-trifluoro-1-hydroxyethyl) pyrrolidin-1-yl)-2-trifluoro Methyl) benzonitrile (LGD-4033).
What are SARMs?
SARMs are synthetic drugs that have effects similar to those of testosterone. The products are still relatively new and many are still in the research phase, but several SARMs have been approved for medical purposes. Despite FDA approval, SARMs are widely available online and marketed to bodybuilders as “legal steroids” or “steroid alternatives” or for “research only.”
