What are SARMs?
Selective androgen receptor modulators or SARMs are a class of androgen receptor ligands similar to anabolic steroids, except that they come with relatively lesser adverse effects.
Unlike anabolic steroids, SARMs display selective nature for receptors in certain tissues. Thus, one can say that the therapeutic potential of SARMs lies in their ability to bind certain specific tissues.
Scientific evidence also suggests that it is the specificity that makes SARMs better than anabolic steroids.
Benefits of SARMs
The use of SARMs is quite prevalent amongst bodybuilders as it is quite effective in muscle building and bulking. Besides, anecdotal evidence suggests that to increase your lean body mass, SARMs make a perfect choice.
They also increase bone density and fat loss alongside improving the immune system, quality of sleep, and increasing appetite.
Furthermore, their anabolic effect is similar to testosterone, and when compared to steroids they have fewer side effects. For example, it is not toxic to the liver and doesn’t disturb blood pressure.
Why SARMs come in different forms
The manufactured state of SARM is the powder form. This means all SARMs first exist as powder.
Later for delivery purposes, they may be compacted into a pill or mixed with alcohol to convert it into a liquid solution.
Companies may also dispense the powder into gelatin capsules.
Now the thing is, SARMs are not FDA approved. It is only legal to use SARMs as a research chemical.
Therefore most companies prefer making liquid SARMs rather than a pill or a capsule for legal purposes.
Now obviously, both forms of SARMs have their pros and cons to offer. Let’s dive into each of them individually to reach a conclusion.
Benefits of liquid SARMs
The powder, when dissolved in solvents like PEG-300, DMSO, etc., makes liquid SARMs. The solvent concentrates the active component in the liquid.
Liquid SARMs come in colored dropper bottles to protect the mixture from light. The dropper makes it easy to dispense the exact dosage every time you use it.
The biggest advantage of liquid SARMs lies in the accuracy of dosage. From one drop to another and from one bottle to the next, ML and mg in each dose don’t vary, whereas this is not the case with machine-packed pills.
Other than that, liquid SARMs can be taken sublingually. You can place a few drops beneath your tongue and wait for seconds before swallowing. This method is considered more potent and seems to have more bioavailability.
Liquid SARMs are readily absorbed once intaken and therefore are thought to show more efficacy and be mildly more effective than pills.
So, they make an excellent option for those who have difficulty swallowing pills or capsules.
Disadvantages of liquid SARMs
Liquid SARMs are appealing when it comes to the accuracy of measurement, but they have a few setbacks as well.
Liquid tastes horrible because of the alcohol, which makes it difficult for some people as it can induce vomit. You may dispense the liquid in capsules to save yourself from the awful taste.
Moreover, there is also a risk of spillage during traveling as the bottles are prone to damage. But then it depends on the quality of the dropper bottle used. An expensive one would offer more safety, but that doesn’t completely cut down the risk.
Benefits of SARMs pills
Pills are easy to carry around and have a longer shelf life. You take a pill, and you are done for the day.
They are not susceptible to damage which makes them durable and easier to ship.
Pills do not have any extra ingredients, whereas liquid needs a solvent. So in the case of pills, you will be taking just compact powder SARMs.
Also, powder SARMs don’t have any smell or taste to them.
Setbacks of SARMs pills
In Pills, you do not have the freedom to select your dosage. For example, if you have a 15mg pill in your hand and want a 10mg dose, you can not accurately divide the pill.
The inconsistent dosage is also one of the drawbacks of pills. The accuracy may vary up to 10℅ from one pill to another in the same bottle.
Capsules stay in your stomach for a little while and therefore take a longer time to absorb. They may also cause stomach discomfort. This is not the case with liquids.
The pill form of SARMs suggests it is for human consumption, whereas SARMs are not FDA approved, thus resulting in a legal concern.
So the question of whether liquid SARMs are better or the pills would largely depend on your preferred form of intake.
Both forms of SARMs have their pros and cons. It’s now entirely up to you which one you like better. Note that whichever form you go with, the potency of the SARM would remain the same, so you don’t have to worry about the effectiveness!
