Also known as Testolone, RAD-140 is a Selective Androgen Receptor (SARM) that has been observed to have the best anabolic to androgenic ratio of all the SARMs that has been discovered. It’s on the 90:1 ration level and there’s been little hazard found on any muscles that are not attached to any bone but still having some androgenic activity.
The Androgenic ratio of testosterone is found to be 100:100 which means that RAD-140/Testolone’s anabolic ratio is almost the same as testosterone itself shown by its 1/100th ratio. It’s one positive point for this SARM because it is less likely to produce negative androgenic effects on the prostate, kidney, liver and other internal organs.
RAD-140: The Origin
Testolone is the most recent SARM. The very first official study of this compound was published only in 2010 and further tests, studies, and research still need to be done on it but at present, there already are some reports on its effects (both short term and long term) from those who use it for research and testing.
Studies done on monkeys and mice have returned results that are found to be very promising. For instance, this SARM has shown to contain a peculiar property that counters the common prostate enlargement issue in older males making it a unique piling agent for Androgenic Steroids that can cause the negative effects given above.
The testing of this SARM in monkeys has shown an increase in lean muscle weight all throughout the test period. This result depended largely on the dosage used so the more dosage meant even more of the lean mass development effect and reduction of muscle fats. RAD-140 is considered a true SARM with all the properties that are seen in compounds and mixtures that belong to the same category.
RAD-140’s Benefits And Effects
Before starting to use RAD-140 for research and tests it’s good to first check on some of the benefits and effects that it can offer. The list below is non-conclusive and may vary depending on the subject of the test itself.
Effects Based on Animal Tests
- Aids in the burning of excess fat
- Raises general muscle tone
- An efficient setting of muscle mass minus the rollback phenomenon
- Increases strength, endurance, and speed
- Effective for both male and female genders
- Animal tested and observed to improve circulation of blood
- Does not produce irreversible and physically harmful side effects
- Non-toxic and tested safe on animals
- Does not cause negative effects on the liver
- No effect on hormonal balance
- Prevents neuronal damage
Possible Side Effects
RAD-140 is one of the SARMs that don’t show any harmful side effect based on previous animal testing. It works efficiently in producing anabolic effects without causing harm to the liver and it does not cause baldness or show any other unfavorable results. The compound only acts on receptors found in the muscles and bones without interacting with the rest of the body tissues.
