    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.

    ANDARINE Uses & Effectiveness What is this?

    Insufficient Evidence for:

    • 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).
    • Osteoporosis.
    • Prostate cancer.
    • Other conditions.
    More evidence is needed to rate andarine for these uses.

    ANDARINE Side Effects & Safety

    When taken by mouth: Andarine is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. Liver damage, heart attack, and stroke have been reported in some people taking drugs like andarine.

    Special Precautions & Warnings:

    Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There isn't enough reliable information to know if andarine is safe to use when pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

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.
