What is MK-2866?
MK-2866, also known as Ostarine, is a selective androgen receptor modulor, or SARM, initially developed for the prevention of muscle wasting diseases. Ostarine 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’s in it?
According to the FDA Warning Letter, Ostarine MK2866 contains the following ingredients:
What are SARMs?
Unlike traditional anabolic steroids, SARMs work specifically on muscle tissue, which is why manufacturers and proponents of the products consider them “safe steroids.” In theory, SARMS mimic the effects of testosterone in the body; however, unlike synthetic testosterone or anabolic steroids, they are directly targeted at skeletal muscle. However, given that they are so new, and may be adulterated with any number of unregulated substances, the jury is still out as to the relative safety of SARMs.
SARMs Side Effects
- Liver damage
- Cardiovascular complications
- Heart attack
- Blood clots
- Deep vein Thrombosis (DVT)
- Pulmonary Embolism (PE)
