Cardarine is an interesting SARM due to the fact that it carries several benefits not only for its muscle-building and other bodybuilding properties, but also for its uses for general health in the medical field.
It was originally developed to treat obesity, diabetes, and those with heart problems. It helps to improve aspects of your heart health such as raise your HDL (good cholesterol) while lowering your LDL (bad cholesterol).
It has also been shown to reverse genetic abnormalities in obese and diabetic patients. This is accomplished by increasing the capability of muscle to intake glucose. This gives the body a greater capability to burn fat for energy rather than carbs or protein. And it does all of this without dropping blood sugar levels as opposed to diabetes drugs, which then require insulin to mitigate.
It has also been shown to reduce inflammation and liver damage, which further proves its beneficial case for diabetics, while also being able to be used for the general and athletic populations.
Use in Athletes
It’s most popular use has been far-and-wide in the endurance athlete community. These include athletes such as runners, muay thai fighters, swimmers, and cyclists. Cardarine has been shown to increase time to exhaustion, mile time, and VO2 max, among other variables and tests of endurance.
But don’t think that this SARM is just limited to endurance athletes. It gives bodybuilders and other physique athletes the distinct advantage of being able to burn fat faster, as they are able to not only perform more cardio, but also they can perform more reps during their weight lifting sessions, creating a greater calorie-burning effect.
This will also result in the athlete requiring less rest in between sets. Because of this, they will be able to perform more work in less amount of time, resulting in a healthier, more efficient heart and aerobic system overall.
Variety of Goals
The great aspect of cardarine is that it can be used for a variety of goals, including bulking, cutting, recomposition, endurance performance, the list goes on. Cardarine is a fantastic SARM that has limitless capabilities with minimal side effects, the only notable one being a mild form of suppression. But as we discussed before, an appropriate PCT will mitigate that potential downside.
