I just found a research study online about SARMs (LGD 4033, RAD 140, YK11) and that was recently published this month out of the United Kingdom. The study concluded that 70% of the SARMs capsules they tested did not contain what they said it contained and contained SARMs that were unclaimed on the bottle. Oh boy, what a mess!!
Check out the study ( I purchased it)
This is not surprising to me AT ALL. Because SARMs are unapproved drugs, the SARMs capsules have to be made in someone’s house, not by a contract packager with the correct equipment and capabilities to make capsule products. Therefore when it is made in someone’s home, 9 out of 10 times, it is being done by someone who’s “winging” it. This is a recipe for producing faulty products.
The second problem is the SARMs themselves. I swear I’m not exaggerating, but I get about ten emails a day and ten text messages a day from companies in China trying to sell me SARM powder and steroid powders. Do I think every one of these companies is trying to scam me? Absolutely! However, these are the companies selling people all over the world, including the U.S., their bogus powders.
I read the study carefully and found someting interesting as well. The researchers bought some of their SARMs from a company called Toronto Research Chemicals.
Guess how much 25 mg of RAD-140 is?
I can buy that same amount from SARM’s sellers for about $10!!
Does that not bring up a red flag?
If the real stuff is $800, how can black-market stuff cost 95% LESS?
I would bet 80% of people using SARMs for bodybuilding purposes have not idea what they are using. Could contain nothing, could contains some or very little, could contain something else, or could contain something completely different, like DMAA.
Be careful when you are buying SARMs…that’s all I can say about that.
