ANDARINE Overview Information
Andarine is an investigational drug that has not yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It is part of a class of drugs called selective androgen receptor modulators (SARMs). Some supplement companies have included andarine in products for bodybuilding. The FDA considers supplements containing andarine to be illegal.
People use andarine to improve athletic performance and for conditions such as involuntary weight loss in people who are very ill (cachexia or wasting syndrome), osteoporosis, and prostate health, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. Using andarine can also be unsafe.
How does it work?
Andarine attaches to proteins in the body known as androgen receptors. When andarine binds to these receptors, it tells the muscles and bones in the body to grow. Unlike some other chemicals that bind to androgen receptors, such as steroids, andarine doesn't seem to cause as many side effects in other parts of the body.
- Age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia).
- Athletic performance.
- Enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH).
- Involuntary weight loss in people who are very ill (cachexia or wasting syndrome).
- Prostate cancer.
- Other conditions.

The appropriate dose of andarine depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for andarine. Keep in mind that natural products are not always necessarily safe and dosages can be important. Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using.
