Andarine – S4

Andarine has become a compound of interest among athletes and bodybuilders for these very reasons. Athletes choose to use Andarine for potential performance benefits including lean muscle growth, increased strength and bone density, fat loss, better endurance and more efficient use of nutrients.

These positive effects come with the benefit of minimal androgenic effects which appeals especially to women who can suffer severe masculinizing side effects with anabolic steroids which have much higher androgenic properties than SARMs like Andarine do.

Original price was: R440.Current price is: R396.



Andarine (S4) was originally developed for medical purpose and exhibited promising potential in treating various conditions such as osteoporosis, benign prostatic hypertrophy (prostate enlargement), and muscle wasting conditions. By stimulating muscle growth and increasing bone density, Andarine aimed to address the challenges posed by these ailments and enhance the overall well-being of patients.

While subsequent research shifted its focus towards performance enhancement, it is important to recognize Andarine’s initial intended applications and the scientific basis that led to its exploration as a therapeutic agent.. However clinical trials are no longer being undertaken with this drug and, like all SARMS, it currently has no approval for use in humans.

Andarine can bring about such substantial benefits for athletes that some professionals have gone so far as to risk their careers in using it. Some of these athletes were caught through drug testing so any Andarine user who is a competitor must be mindful of testing.

Like all SARMs, Andarine is not an anabolic steroid and because it is an experimental drug without any long-term human trials, it can come with some unknown health risks. Like anabolic steroids, Andarine and all SARMs are not legal to purchase or use and are prohibited in professional sports.

The best uses of this concern its excellent ability to promote muscle mass and strength gains, fat loss and its excellent muscle hardening properties; in fact, it is one of the best hardening compounds you can use.

Dosage Instructions

Andarine has a very short half-life measured in just three to four hours. This will require you to take this SARM multiple times per day with three times daily being the standard and usually this will be taken at mealtimes. This regular dosing can make Andarine a SARM that is mostly appealing to the most serious users who are dedicated to not missing a dose.

Dosage varies wildly with experience and goals and can range from just 25mg daily up to 75mg as the maximum. Higher doses increase your risk of side effects so new users should always start low and evaluate your body’s reaction to Andarine before increasing the dosage. Hormone suppression is also more likely at higher doses.

The right dosage for you is an important consideration that should be carefully planned and evaluated as you go not only to ensure the best performance benefits and overall results, but also to balance out the side effects against these benefits. You will be wanting to take the optimal dose for best results while minimizing testosterone suppression and risk of eyesight related side effects.
If you’re a first time Andarine user, you will be looking at a trial-and-error approach initially by starting out with a low dose and evaluating both your results and any development of side effects.

Andarine is actually very beneficial at low doses, so there’s no need to raise the dose to dangerous levels under the assumption it will boost results. It is powerfully anabolic and will provide impressive benefits at sensible doses, usually starting low at the beginning of the cycle and slowly raising it as you progress.

An initial dose of 25mg daily will provide great benefit for most users and this can be increased over time to a maximum of 50mg per day, if vision issues don’t present themselves. 50mg per day should be the maximum anyone takes of Andarine.

Importantly, because Andarine has a very short half-life of as little as four hours, whatever dose you are taking will need to be split up during the day. Most people will stick to either two or three doses throughout the day. This strategy ensures that your blood concentration levels of Andarine remain at peak level.

Andarine Cycles
The maximum length of an Andarine cycle should always be no longer than 8 weeks, regardless of your dosage. This is to mostly minimize the risk of serious vision impairment issues developing.

Andarine only cycle
Starting Andarine at 25mg in this 8-week cycle making use solely of this SARM will allow you to evaluate its effects. If all is going well and vision related issues are minimal or non-existent then the dose can be increased to 50mg daily – but you should not exceed that dosage as the maximum.

Andarine bulking cycle
Testolone (RAD 140) works well in combination with Andarine in a bulking cycle stack. Starting Andarine at 25mg daily at the start and increasing it to 50mg daily, while using Testolone at just 10mg per day will provide excellent mass gains. Testolone can be increased to 20mg daily for more advanced users.

Andarine cutting cycle
A popular cutting stack involves the addition of Cardarine. Again, limiting Andarine to between 25mg and 50mg daily provides best results, and starting low then increasing it through the cycle is a common strategy. Cardarine is effective at 20mg daily in this stack. This stack will result in increased endurance, fat burning, muscle hardening and muscle retention.

Remember: Andarine’s short half-life will require you to split your desired dose into two to three doses daily to maintain optimal blood levels. All cycles should be limited to no longer than 8 weeks.

Effect on Cycle

Andarine is popular because it can bring many positive benefits with minimal downsides, especially when compared with steroids but even if compared with other SARMs.

Regardless of your specific goal, most users of Andarine are going to notice exceptional hardening of the muscles and this can start becoming noticeable within as little as the first week of use. This makes it excellent for using for contest preparation and works well when used as part of a larger stack where Andarine is included in the last 6 or 8 weeks of the stack to bring on that hard and vascular appearance.

Strength is another area you can expect to see noticeable results. Expect to be improving your best lifting records by the second half of your cycle, but also an increase in endurance will have you lasting longer no matter what form of fitness you’re focused on.

Keeping your gains and progress after your Andarine cycle ends is a challenge that you will face, just as all steroid users do. Andarine does not come with the massive muscle gains you can achieve with powerful anabolic steroids such as Dianabol.

The more modest gains are going to be easier to hold on to for most people if you are maintaining a sensible diet and exercise routine; and if you’re a serious athlete, bodybuilder or competitor then you are likely to be doing just that.

S4 will deliver in multiple areas which makes it useful for a range of purposes – from bulking, to cutting to general performance enhancement. It is therefore useful for different people whether you’re a bodybuilder or elite athlete. Here are the main benefits and effects that Andarine S4 can offer:

  • Andarine provides benefits in strengthening bones by improving bone density which is an advantage for weightlifting athletes where the musculoskeletal system needs to be of sufficient strength to support the growth in muscle mass you’re trying to achieve.
  • Endurance, stamina, strength and agility can all be improved with Andarine, so this makes it a versatile SARM suited for a range of athletic and fitness goals.
  • A benefit you’ll often hear about with S4 is that it causes less side effects than other SARMs and is useful for both bulking and cutting but is particularly useful for cutting and helps retain existing muscle during this time. It can harden the muscles and increase vascularity, boost strength and potentially help burn fat by encouraging the burning of stored fat for energy. Muscle gains can be impressive with S4, as far as SARMs go, but naturally will not rival that which you can achieve with steroids.
  • Andarine basically puts the body into a quality anabolic state where you’ll find that gaining some muscle and burning fat will come quicker, but not as quick as steroids and the slower results can lead some to think that S4 isn’t working. Therefore, it’s important to finish an entire cycle before evaluating results. Another benefit of course is the lack of water retention that you won’t see with any gains made with S4, so you know your gains are quality muscle tissue.
  • S4 will help you achieve a harder, tighter and leaner body with greater vascularity thanks to its excellent fat burning ability. The lack of water retention makes Andarine an excellent option if you want the the most chiseled possible physique, making it appealing for physique competitors.
  • Because Andarine is powerfully anabolic, the body remains in a stable anabolic state which prevents the loss of muscle tissue while you’re burning fat. Compared with some of the best cutting steroids like Winstrol, Andarine won’t cause muscular cramps or the joint pain many Winstrol users experience.
  • Andarine has high anabolic activity so encourages muscular growth. While this growth won’t be at the same level that you can achieve with steroids, for most users of Andarine who are not the most hardcore of bodybuilders, this lean muscle growth will be welcomed and even at low doses can result in up to 8 pounds of lean muscle gains over an 8-week cycle period.

Overall, Andarine is one of the most versatile compounds you can use and provides an excellent alternative to steroids where you reduce the side effect profile considerably but still retain some superb benefits.
If building moderate amounts of muscle mass, enhancing bone strength, decreasing body fat and achieving a nice toned and cut physique appeal to you, then Andarine S4 covers all these bases very well.

Additional Information

  • When considering the potential side effects of Andarine, they will be like those that are associated with virtually all SARMs.Although one of the great appeals of SARMs like Andarine is their relatively lack of side effects when compared with steroids, Andarine still comes with some possible serious risks.The most important possible negative effects to be aware of when you use Andarine are:
    • Changes to Eyesight – Discomfort in the eyes and vision impairment are potentially the most concerning possible side effects of Andarine. This can include several abnormal eyesight problems like the development of blurred vision, or a yellowish tinge to your vision especially in low light or at night.
    • Testosterone Suppression – Anabolic steroid users will be used to dealing with hormone suppression, but this can be an issue with some SARMs as well, and Andarine S4 is the SARM that can have the most suppressive qualities out of all SARMs. Still, this will not rival the suppression power of steroids but can still become enough of an issue that you will want to do post cycle therapy following your Andarine cycle.
    • Mood Changes – Some users have reported depression related feelings when using Andarine. There is little to no research to indicate how widespread this side effect is and whether it is directly caused by Andarine, and how widely it varies between individuals.
    • Cancer – Some SARMs have shown in animal trials to bring about development of some cancers. This has led all SARMs being linked to possible cancer growth, but once again evidence is lacking either way when it comes to Andarine’s link to cancer.
    • Liver Damage (Toxicity) – Liver damage or liver toxicity has been warned of as a potential risk with SARMs in general, but there are no specific known cases of liver damage with Andarine so this particular effect is still unknown. As with any substance, very high doses or continual long-term use will always prove a risk to the liver which makes it paramount that Andarine is used at moderate doses for short periods of time and adequate breaks in between cycles.
    • Heart Issues – Chest pain, high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack are often listed as potential complications of SARMs in general, however once again there are no specific indications that these issues have occurred with Andarine. Anyone using the compound at extremely high, unsafe doses can expect risks in all aspects of health, but those using S4 at sensible doses are unlikely to experience any heart related complications.

    All the side effects are considered temporary and should disappear within a week or two after stopping Andarine.
