A Quick intro to RAD 140
A powerful performance-enhancing supplement used in the medical world, as well as by amateur and professional athletes as well as bodybuilders, RAD 140 is technically classified as a “research chemical” – a chemical compound that is being researched by the medical community as a potential treatment for a variety of different diseases and conditions, including cancer.
Offering many of the same benefits that traditional anabolic steroids offer – without the life-threatening and potentially deadly side effects that those steroids inevitably bring to the table – RAD 140 is a type of SARM (Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) that represents the “next big thing” in the world of performance-enhancing compounds.
Believe it or not, like a lot of other performance-enhancing compounds, RAD 140 is relatively brand-new.
It was only first discovered back in 2010 by the folks at the Radius Health laboratory. At that point in time they were exploring this chemical compound as a potential treatment for osteoporosis as well as looking into how it may help those recovering from breast cancer.
It wasn’t long until those in the athletic community discovered the muscle building and fat burning benefits of this compound, and that’s when RAD 140 really started to take off as far as its performance-enhancing capabilities were concerned.
- Can improve muscle growth significantly without enlarging the prostate
- Increases overall lean muscle tissue without increasing fat tissue
- Speed, strength, and stamina gains are outsized compared to traditional PEDs
- Can produce a better anabolic effect than synthetic testosterone
- The long term impact is not yet known
- RAD 140 can be difficult to get a hold of, depending on local laws and regulations
How Exactly Does RAD 140 Work?
The way that this chemical compound works is pretty simple and straightforward.
Our bodies are filled with androgen receptors, most of them located within our skeletal muscle structure. These are the muscles that you can willingly control on demand – muscles in your arms, your chest, your shoulders, your legs, etc. – basically all of the major muscle groups that you can target when you hit the gym.
Well, when you flood your body with the RAD 140 compound you trigger those androgen receptors and compel them to elevate the hormonal production in your body necessary for generating new lean muscle mass.
Your anabolic processes kicked into overdrive, maxing out your natural ability to produce more lean muscle mass than you would have been able to otherwise, all without aromatizing– and all without converting to DHT the way that traditional anabolic steroids might.
Your natural testosterone levels increase, your ability to build muscle and melt fat elevate as well, and your energy, your youthful vigor, your confidence, and a whole host of other secondary benefits are all going to increase when you cycle this supplement.
Some have called it the safe version of Dianabol, one of the most powerful – but notorious – anabolic steroids in human history.
What Are the Potential Side Effects of RAD 140?
Of course, the big draw of this SARM (like every other SARM on the market today) is that you are going to see significant performance-enhancing benefits without any real drawbacks or side effects.
The odds are pretty good that you’ve heard a promise like this before in the past – and the odds are even better that you been let down by a performance-enhancing supplement that promised you the moon and the stars when it came to safety but wasn’t able to deliver the goods.
That will not be a problem with this SARM.
One of the coolest things about RAD 140 is that it has absolutely no known negative side effects outside of elevated energy levels that can make it difficult to fall asleep or the converse, that you feel a little bit more fatigued and a little bit more lethargic than you might have otherwise.
It’s important to remember that this chemical compound has only been around for about a decade and we still don’t fully understand or appreciate the long-term health ramifications it may have on the human body.
At the same time, it’s also important to understand that none of the side effects – including the ones we highlighted above – have been clinically linked to this chemical compound and are still described as “anecdotal”.
What Are the Most Effective Dosages of RAD 140?
The biggest trouble you are going to have with RAD 140 is figuring out what the ideal dosage is for your body and what you are looking to pull off.
There is no “universal” dosage that you can begin experimenting with for optimal results right out of the gate. Most people recommend a dosage of anywhere between 10 mg and 30 mg per day, but obviously if you are just beginning to experiment with this SARM you’ll want to make sure that you “under dose” rather than “over dose” to figure out exactly what your body is looking for.
No matter what, make sure that you aren’t pushing beyond 30 mg a day. Stick closer to 10 mg a day (or less) in the early stages and buildup throughout your cycle – always experimenting to find what works best for you.
Speaking of cycles, you’ll want to make sure that you are running a cycle of this SARM that lasts anywhere between 8 weeks and 10 weeks long.
Don’t stretch it beyond 10 weeks or you might start running into some trouble, particularly with inhibited natural testosterone production for a short while after you stop cycling and supplementing this compound.
When Should I Expect to See Real Results?
You will begin to see significant results as far as lean muscle mass production is concerned almost right away, and certainly within the first three weeks of using this compound.
Three weeks is usually when you’ll start to see major jumps in your overall strength, speed, and endurance as well.
All of these increases are going to continue throughout your cycle, and almost all of these improvements are going to be cemented permanently after you conclude your cycle – though there will be some minor regression as you cycle off (like there is with every other SARM or performance-enhancing compound).
Can RAD 140 Be Stacked with Other Supplements?
It is definitely possible to stack RAD 140 with other SARM compounds to see some incredible results, particularly if you’re looking to focus specifically on bulking up or shredding fat exclusively.
Those that choose to bulk with the help of this SARM usually like to mix in a combination of Ibutamoren as well. You’ll want to make sure that your daily dosage (milligrams) of these two in combination never exceed the daily dosage that you would have consumed of RAD 140 alone.
If you’re going to be focusing on shredding fat and cutting, think about combining this SARM with something like Cardarine. Your cutting results will shoot right through the roof with this combination, though you could also tinker with MK 677 if you’re having a tough time keeping your appetite up as well.
When you get right down to it, there are some significant benefits that different SARM combinations and compounds bring to the table.
RAD 140 on its own is a game changer in every sense of the word, a performance-enhancing compound that can help you build more muscle mass, improve your energy levels, skyrocket your strength and endurance, and help you belt fat a whole lot faster than you would have been able to alone.
Best of all, you’re going to be able to get all of those benefits – ALL of those benefits – without having to worry about the nasty side effects that traditional performance-enhancing drugs or anabolic steroids force you to contend with.
