What is LGD-4033?
LGD-4033, also known as Ligandrol, is a drug that belongs to the Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, or SARMs for short. These compounds are being researched and developed as a possible safer alternative to anabolic-androgenic steroids (
Although classical anabolic steroids have proven to be of immense value in treating many diseases, they have many undesirable side effects. Since SARMs such as LGD-4033 are more selective in the tissue they target, they could offer a safer alternative to anabolic steroids.
How does LGD 4033 work?
LGD-4033 works in a similar manner to anabolic steroids. Both target androgen receptors, leading to increased muscle growth, improved bone density, and faster recovery.
But while anabolic steroids bind to androgen receptors throughout the body, LGD-4033 only targets those in the skeletal muscle.
LGD 4033 results
The results of Ligandrol are similar to Ostarine (MK-2866) but about 5 times stronger.
The most common effects of LGD 4033 are:
- Increase in muscle mass
- Improved strength
- Improved bone density
- Increased recovery
Increase muscle mass
One of the key benefits of ligandrol is it’s ability to increase muscle mass and strength. When used during a caloric deficit, it helps maintain muscle mass.
Improve bone density
In addition to the impact it has on the prevention of muscle wasting, it also improves bone health by increasing bone mineral density. One of the main goals in the development of LGD-4033 is actually the treatment of osteoporosis.
LGD 4033 side-effects
While SARMs have less side effects than androgenic anabolic steroids, they are not side-effect free. For instance, the most common side effect of Ligandrol is suppression of natural testosterone production. From the evidence that is available, there is a fairly rapid return to baseline after the use is discontinued.
Classified as doping
Because of it’s performance enhancing effects, Ligandrol is considered doping and therefore has been banned by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency). A number of athletes have tested positive for the use of Ligandrol.
How to take LGD 4033?
The common dose of Ligandrol is 10 mg per day over a period of 6 to 8 weeks. Since it has a half life of 24 to 36 hours, you can take it in a single dose.
Liquid LGD 4033 has a concentration of 10mg per ml, which means 1ml is a single daily dose.
The best LGD 4033 dosage
Research has proven that LGD 4033 is active in dosages as small as 1 mg per day. It is generally used in a dose between 5 and 20 mg, with 10 mg being the sweet spot. This is equivalent to 1 ml of LGD 4033 liquid.
