What is Mk2866?
Ostabolic (MK2866) is classified as a SARM. It was initially developed to treat and prevent muscle wastage amongst cancer and osteoporosis patients. It has been considered and hoped to be used for preventing muscle atrophy, cachexia and sarcopnia and has also been discussed for use during TRT/HRT
How it works:
Ostabolic binds to the AR (androgen receptor) which demonstrates anabolic activity in the bone and muscle. MK allows for muscle growth by find and activating the AR. By binding to the AR, MK increases protein synthesis and alters the expression of genes. MK2866 almost exclusively exerts its anabolic effects on muscle tissue and minimizes muscle atrophy, most notably during recovery periods from surgeries and injuries. This makes MK useful and desirable in numerous instances. MK is highly effects at gaining and/or maintaining extremely lean body mass.
One of the major benefits of Ostabolic use is the healing benefits. These benefits translate into anabolism of the both the bone and skeletal tissues. Research has shown that these effects allow it to be used in a variety of ways, most notably in the treatment of osteoporosis and muscle wasting. It is also a strong compliment to other treatments that treat bone density reduction. MK has extremely strong benefits when used for injury rehabilitation. MK provides REAL healing as opposed to methods that act as a band aid, providing temporary relief and only masking the injury. MK actually heals an injury at a rapid rate.
SARMS do not aromatize, conferring all their effects to AR binding and not to metabolic conversion to active androgens/estrogens. There have been rare circumstances in blood work from research subjects showing slightly elevated estradiol levels (which correlates with its effectiveness in treating bone, tendon and ligament injuries). These rare circumstances have only shown small and slight increases and are not a cause for concern, but more so, just to be aware of the small possibility. When there is concern of estrogen issues occurring, it is always wise to have an aromatase inhibitor, such as aromasin or arimidex, on hand in case treatment is necessary.
MK-2866 can be slightly suppressive when exceeding 4 weeks of use. This suppression has shown to be extremely minimal and no cause for concern or worry. A strong test booster can be used in conjunction with MK to ensure less than minimal amounts of suppression occurs. A 3-4 week mini post cycle therapy protocol is all that is need after use. Recovery time takes 2-3 weeks.
MK-2866 advantages and benefits:
- HighlyAnabolic even at moderate doses
- Excellent for lean mass gains
- Truly shines when used for body recomposition
- Helps increase endurance (aerobic or anaerobic)
- Joint and Injury healing abilities
- Half life of 24 hours which requires dosing only once a day
- Non methylated so no negative effects on liver, blood pressure or other internal organs
- Minimal suppression and only a mini pct is required with rapid recovery time
- Great sense of well being while on
- Large increases in strength
