Images are for illustrative purposes only


Ostarine is known under several names including Enobosarm and Ostabolic, and its chemical code of MK-2866. This SARM is a powerful anabolic compound that can provide some similar benefits to those of anabolic steroids but without the very serious side effects.

Ostarine is a versatile compound that can do whatever you want it to. Want to make some nice mass gains? Ostarine can do that. Or perhaps you’re ready for another Cutting Cycle and need something to help maintain your lean muscle and give you a hardened look without water retention? Ostarine can do that too.

This makes MK-2866 a SARM that can suit a wide range of people, and not just those looking to pack on muscle mass. Its anabolic effects make Ostarine a compound that’s not only useful on its own, but one that can also be utilized by steroid users who want to take an extra step in retaining muscle gains in between Steroid Cycles by using a milder yet still very effective substance.

Original price was: R520.Current price is: R468.



Ostarine (MK 2866) is useful for both bulking and cutting. It has direct anabolic effects by binding to androgen receptors only in the muscles and bones, and because it doesn’t aromatize or convert to estrogen or DHT like real steroids do, we can get the full benefit of anabolism where it’s needed without the dreaded adverse effects that anabolic steroids cause.

That doesn’t mean Ostarine can’t cause side effects and as we will see, one of those is the mild suppression of testosterone in some users but overall, we can use Ostarine with the confidence that the harshest effects of anabolic steroids won’t be experienced. And this also make Ostarine very useful to female users equally as to men.

This is what makes SARMs like Ostarine so appealing to athletes, bodybuilders and anyone wanting a performance increase or physique improvements.

Ostarine can achieve its muscle building ability through much of the same processes that are also stimulated by steroids; after all, these are the core biological functions of muscle growth. This includes protein synthesis and nitrogen retention which will both be enhanced.

With such a wide range of uses it is little wonder that this is a popular SARM that is delivering impressive results for many different people.

Dosage Instructions

10mg-25mg / Day

Ostarine’s half-life is about 24 hours so you can safely take your dose once a day and know that blood levels of the compound will remain at a prime level during that time. Depending on your dose, some users on higher doses may choose to split the dose into a twice daily administration so half is taken early in the day and the remaining half at evening time.

Ostarine is easy to take as it’s an oral SARM so no Injectioins are required.

Studies have discovered that even very low doses of Ostarine (1mg daily) can increase muscle mass in people with muscle wasting conditions. As these are people with already very low levels of lean muscle, bodybuilders wanting to take muscle growth to more extreme levels will look at taking a higher dosage, but those who are just starting out or who only want mild gains can safely start at this low dose and know that it has the potential to bring about some gains.

For a cutting phase where you need to retain muscle while on a reduced calorie diet, a dosage of Ostarine at 15mg daily is recommended. This dose helps protect muscle but does not, in most people, promote much growth.

To achieve muscle growth increasing the daily dosage to 20mg or up to 25mg is standard for most people, and while high doses can be used it is thought that the benefits do not increase noticeably above 25mg. A simple 6-to-8-week cycle will require some post-cycle therapy (PCT) afterwards by some men, while others won’t suffer any suppression at all. In any case a minimum of 4 weeks with a break without any SARMs is always needed for recovery.

For performance enhancement, a good dose to start at is 15mg per day. This will provide more than enough to deliver excellent results for most users. But those wanting to go to the next level will look at increasing the dosage to even double that amount, at 30mg daily. It is generally thought that higher doses don’t deliver great benefits, and that somewhere between 20mg to 30mg is the sweet spot for Ostarine in male users.

Females can make good use of Ostarine without the concern of virilization and most women will look at dosing MK-2866 at 5mg to 15mg daily at the high end. Even at the lowest doses females are certain to see very noticeable benefits because of Ostarine’s high anabolic effects.





The typical length of an Ostarine cycle is between 6 and 8 weeks, although some users will choose as short as 5 weeks. Keep in mind that the longer your cycle goes for (and higher the dosage) the more suppression of testosterone you will likely be dealing with both during the cycle and once it’s finished.

Following an Ostarine Cycle it’s important to have a break from using any SARMs at all for at least 4 weeks so the body has time to recover.

Ostarine only cycle

It’s not unusual to do an Ostarine only cycle and it’s possible to make some nice muscle gains, especially if you are relatively new to bodybuilding.


Those who are already bulked up will likely look at other compounds for increased bulking but can make excellent use of Ostarine to retain the gains that are made during a more potent bulking cycle. This is where the value of MK-2866 is for some advanced users: as a bridging and maintenance compound, especially after using steroids for bulking. A dosage of 20mg daily for 3-6 weeks will provide good protection of lean muscle.

Ostarine bulking cycle

To power right into a bulking cycle with Ostarine, which works very well as a sole compound for this purpose, you can take 20-25mg a day and see the benefits quickly. New users might hesitate at starting at this high of a dose, so even 10mg will still provide very noticeable gains.


But there is no doubt that a dose of up to 25mg for 6 to 8 weeks is going to show you the power of Ostarine for mass gains as it boosts strength, protein synthesis, stamina and energy so your body is primed for muscle growth and you’re going to be able to work out harder – speeding up those gains even more. There will be no water retention so expect the gains to be high quality and easier to maintain.

Ostarine cutting cycle

Ostarine can work well on its own in a cutting cycle and is superb for muscle preservation. To help retain muscle a dosage of just 15mg daily is often sufficient, as you are unlikely to be wanting to put on a lot of mass at this time. But to take fat burning to another level in a cutting stack you will want to combine Ostarine with at least one other compound that has more potent fat burning ability and one of the best choices is Cardarine.


While it isn’t itself a SARM, Cardarine is excellent for boosting energy and promoting fat burning. This powerful combination is good at preserving muscle while fat is coming off that it’s even possible to make some muscle gains while cutting, depending on your training. A 6-week cycle will deliver results, with a 10mg daily dose of each compound for the first two weeks, increased to 20mg daily for the final four weeks.


Ostarine Stacks

Using Ostarine only is very common, but its versatility can make it possible to use in stacks and in some more creative ways, such as as a bridging compound in between steroid cycles to help you maintain gains because of its minimal suppression and excellent muscle maintenance ability.


As mentioned in the recommended cutting cycle above, Cardarine is a perfect pairing with Ostarine for the purposes of obtaining a very toned, cut physique without losing muscle on a calorie deficit diet. LFD-4033 (Ligandrol) is also commonly stacked with Ostarine for the purpose of gaining muscle and retaining muscle after a bulking cycle.





Every individual using Ostarine will need to evaluate what impact it has on testosterone. Some will experience more suppression than expected, but some guys will not suffer from any noticeable suppression. The higher your Ostarine dose, clearly the higher your risk of suppression is going to be and as a result your requirement to do PCT after the cycle.


The need for PCT for Ostarine cycle depends also on another factor: which, if any, other compounds are used in the cycle and what sort of suppressive effects they also have. If any other hormone suppressive compound is being stacked with Ostarine then the combination of both their effects will almost certainly require you to do post cycle therapy if you are to avoid a low testosterone state and the associated loss of muscle, fat gain, low energy, low libido, depression and a host of other impacts that you’ll experience if your testosterone is below normal levels.
