SARMs stands for "Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators". Let’s break down the whole phrase one by one with a brief introduction.
ANDROGEN- Androgen is the class of hormone that serve as ligands (a molecule used for binding to the larger molecule) that bind to cellular androgen receptors. It acts on the targeting muscle tissue and bone to a greater extent to helps you in building muscle.
RECEPTOR- Receptor is a protein molecule on the surface of the cell membrane and organelles that respond to the chemical signals from outside the cell. When such chemical signals bind to a receptor they form new cellular tissue.
SELECTIVE MODULATOR- A drug that can either block or stimulate the same nuclear hormone receptor under different condition is called a selective receptor modulator. Without harming the other tissues, they selectively work on a particular tissue. It promotes muscle growth without giving any side effects.
Now SARMS is offering the bodybuilders the benefits of traditional Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS) such as testosterone which help increased muscle mass, fat loss, and bone density without unwanted side effects. A wide range of SARMs products provides a variety of health advantage, both to males and females. Now SARMs are used in the bodybuilding and fitness community as performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) to give the athlete an edge over their competition.
