Like with anything in life, there are pros and cons…SARMs are no different. While they may be a class of drugs that have shown great promise in terms of technological advancement, they still have some side effects that you should be aware of before embarking on a cycle of them.
Although it is much less mild than steroids, some types of SARMs have been shown to have a mild form of suppression on the hypothalamic-pituitary-testicular axis (HPTA), which is the bodily system that controls your reproductive functions such as the production of testosterone.
But with a proper post-cycle therapy (PCT) and running the cycles for reasonable amounts of time, then this shouldn’t really be much of an issue. Also, be sure to eat a sound diet and live a rather healthy lifestyle; eating at least 20% of your calories from mix of your saturated and unsaturated fats, as this part of your nutritional plan will have a significant effect on your testosterone levels, so it is best to keep them as optimized as possible while you are on a SARMs cycle.
The only SARM that causes side effects in this department is the SARM called S4, also known as Andarine. This side effect of blurred vision hits a small minority of users. So it can be difficult to say how it will affect you. However, in any case, it is usually quite mild and will quickly dissipate once the drug clears your system. If it continues and you can’t tolerate it anymore, discontinue its use.
Please note, this only affects a SMALL percentage of those that use Andarine S4. But it is something to be aware of.
The amount of side effects of SARMs are far less than there are for steroids. Although they can exist, they are far milder and more tolerable than the alternative.
