Andarine (also known as S4) is a SARM (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) that is designed to help build muscle, improve bone density, and promote fat loss.
It works by selectively targeting androgen receptors in the body. Andarine S4 is considered to be a mild anabolic compound, even in comparison with other SARMs and peptides. This weak nature makes it a perfect option for those who need a slight boost, with no extreme effects, and also — no side effects whatsoever.
S4 by Neo Sarms has been shown to have several benefits for bodybuilders:
- Increases muscle mass a little;
- Improves bone density;
- Promotes fat loss;
- Can help with cutting cycles;
- Boosts endurance and stamina;
- Enhances recovery time;
- Can improve overall body composition.
In addition to all the positive effects, it has benefits defined by its structure, in comparison to anabolic steroids and other SARMs:
- Does not convert to estrogen or DHT;
- Does not cause water retention or bloating;
- Does not require post cycle therapy (PCT) like traditional steroids or potent SARMs.
In short, S4 is less potent, less dangerous than its alternatives, but is still useful as a performance enhancement compound.
Andarine has a short half-life of just 4 to 6 hours, so you need to take it daily, even multiple times a day to get the effects.
The recommended dosage is 25-50mg per day, and it's best to take the first part of it in the morning, one hour after breakfast. To achieve the desired results, Andarine should be used on a cycle basis, with the recommended duration of one cycle being 6 to 8 weeks.
The exact dosage and administration frequency depends on your weight:
Below 85-90 kg: take 25 mg of the drug daily for 6 weeks. Add Ostarine to get a more notable boost in terms of gains.
Over 90 kg: take 35-50 mg per day, the cycle lasting up to 2 months (8 weeks). break this high dose in halves: one in the morning, the second after your workout or just in the evening.
S4 is believed to be one of the best SARM options for weight loss. It’s slightly anabolic, but the effect is not enough for the majority of athletes to see the difference. That’s why its primary use is in cutting cycles: S4 stimulates fat-burning processes in the body by eliminating the accumulation of lipoprotein lipase.
In addition to the weight loss and muscle growth effects, S4 use often results in the normalization of lipid concentration in the blood, which plays a significant part in the prevention of atherosclerosis.
And finally, even though this effect is not enough for a full-scale on-cycle support, you should know that S4 can be a nice addition to your anabolic steroids cycle, because it blocks the binding of natural DHT to prostate receptors, so you get less health risks in the long run.
