MK-2866 (Ostarine) is a research chemical created to avoid and treat muscle wasting. Research has also found this chemical to be useful for building lean mass, increase strength, and as a hormone replacement therapy.
MK-2866 binds to your muscles receptors and causes impressive muscle growth without AAS side effects. These gains are absolutely “keepable” and maintainable after use is discontinued, as long as workouts stay consistent and diet remains on track. MK-2866 helps nutrient partitioning to a high degree. This effect has helped many achieve the supposed “impossible” feat of losing fat while gaining muscle at the same time. While MK-2866 is significantly anabolic (about half as anabolic as testosterone), it's even better at being anti-catabolic, making it ideal for bridges in between cycles. In addition, it's great when you want to jump start your Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Testes-Axis (HPTA) and keep those hard earned gains, while maybe even adding a few pounds in between cycles.
The versatility and safety of MK-2866 makes it a godsend to fitness enthusiasts everywhere. Whether they are looking for a virtually side effect free alternative to steroids in between cycles, a safe non-toxic advantage in healing injuries, or just a significant edge when cutting down stubborn fat stores.
How it works: MK-2866 binds to the androgen receptor (AR). This stimulation increases protein synthesis and builds muscle. MK-2866 causes muscle growth similar to AAS's but it won't produce the negative side effects.
Intake: Males: 25-50mg/day. Females: 15-25mg/day. Space them out with meals or take all at once
Suggested Cycle: 8-12 weeks is optimal
Post Cycle Therapy (PCT): A mini-PCT is suggested
Side effects: MK-2866 is not suppressive to the HPTA in a short 4 week cycle of 25mg a day, but can become suppressive, to a small degree, if use is continued too long or higher doses are used. MK-2866 does not aromatize into estrogen, so no on-cycle ancillaries are needed. In addition, it is not hepatoxic, meaning it doesn’t hurt your liver when you use it. Thus, it allows for longer possible cycle durations than the typical oral AAS cycle. Though MK-2866 is minimally suppressive, it is suggested that a mini-PCT is conducted after an 8-12 week cycle for safe measure. Everybody is different, some may encounter slightly more suppression than the majority as there are always exceptions, but, in general, only a mini-PCT is needed. Many people may experience gyno when use. This is not common, particularly in lower doses. Blood pressure is not affected by use. Many people experience problems with acne, headaches, nausea, and baldness. These are common with large doses. To reduce gyno from happening, you can take a post cycle treatment supplement.
