A brief intro to Stenabolic (SR9009)
With the anabolic Asteroid increasingly being linked to liver damage and prostate cancer, many bodybuilders are now looking for safer alternatives to boost their muscle growth. One of the best alternatives is the Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators, also known as SARMs. Unlike the hormonal therapies, SARMs works only on the muscle tissues, making them a safer alternative. One of these compounds is the Stenabolic, also called SR9009.
What is Stenabolic?
Before I elaborate to you how Stenabolic works, it is important to mention that it is not a SARM although it is advertised as it. It is a Rev-ErbA agonist that has gained immense popularity as an endurance and stamina booster. The compound was developed by Professor Thomas Burris, from The Scripps Research Institute. According to Prof Burris, SR9009 is formulated to help increase endurance and stamina during weight training. In addition, it increases weight and fat loss as well as lowering blood cholesterol, the risk for developing heart diseases, and inflammation. These are the reasons why it has become very popular with both bodybuilders and people struggling with weight issues.
How does Stenabolic Work?
As mentioned above, Stenabolic is a Rev-ErbA agonist; the compound works by affecting the Rev-ErbA proteins in the body. According to various researches done on this protein, it has been proven that Rev-ErbA influences the body’s circadian rhythm by suppressing BMAL1. With that, it is able to modify your sleeping patterns and your overall activities. That is one way how you can improve your bodybuilding activities.
Second, Rev-ErbA other aspects of energy production in the body. That is because this protein comes from the fat tissue, muscles and the liver. The compound increases oxygen consumption and the number of mitochondria in the muscles. That simply means a high metabolism rate, which increases your stamina and endurance. In addition, high metabolism rate increases fat burn improve muscle development. Therefore, as a bodybuilder, you are able to work out more hence improved muscle development.
Apart from increasing your stamina and endurance, what other benefits do you get from SR9009? Well, there are many health benefits that come with using this compound. They include:
1. Can help Lose weight
Stenabolic works in various ways to help you lose weight. First, you will not need to augment your diet. As mentioned above, the compound helps to increase the amount of oxygen consumption hence improving your body metabolism rate. Therefore, more fat is burnt, and that is how you lose weight even without working out. In addition, SR9009 was found to reduce the amount of cholesterol, insulin, triglycerides and free fatty acids in obese mice. Even the genetically obese mice stopped adding weight with 12 days of using this compound. That is another way that this compound helps obese people.
2. Lower Blood Cholesterol
Another benefit you get from Stenabolic is a reduced cholesterol level in the blood. From the simple science point of view, Rev-ErbA alpha agonist helps to reduce bad cholesterol (LDL) in the body and increase the levels of good cholesterol (HDL).In fact, mice that were injected with SR9009 for 7 to 10 days showed a significant reduction of cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood.
3. Can Decrease Inflammation
One other benefit that you get from Stenabolic is reduced inflammation. Some of the common inflammations that this compound has been found to treat include lung inflammation amongst others. In addition, SR9009 was found to produce inflammation molecules in the mice nerve cells.
4. Can Prevent Atherosclerosis
Atherosclerosis is a condition where fats, cholesterol and other substances build up on the artery walls. This condition is one of the major causes of heart diseases, including heart attacks amongst others. The compounds work by reducing the levels of cholesterol and fats in the blood. That is how atherosclerosis is treated and prevented.
5. Increases Wakefulness
The fact that Stenabolic can activate Rev-Erb means that it can also affect your sleep and wake patterns. This was proven in mice. Even though it could be only for a short period, about 12 hours, it will significantly improve your wakefulness
6. Reduce Risk of Heart Diseases
Last but not least is a reduction in the risk of heart diseases. As mentioned above, the compound helps to reduce the level of bad cholesterol and other substances that causes heart diseases such as heart attack. That’s how the risk of diseases is significantly reduced.
Side Effects and Safety
As mentioned above, Stenabolic is not a Selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM), although it is sold as one. It is a non-hormonal, and thus, it does not affect the natural production of testosterone. Therefore, it does not have the same side effects as SARMs. So you will not need a PCT (post cycle therapy) after using the compound.
The bottom line is that there are no side effects of Stenabolic apart from the mild suppression. It does not cause dry mouth, headache, water retention as it is with most of the SARMs. It is also essential to note that SR9009 does not aromatise and it is not liver toxic. So we can comfortably say that it is one of the safest compounds to use.
The Best Dosage (Cycle)
Stenabolic can be administered in various forms including injection, sublingual method or oral. But due to the poor absorption level of the first two, oral administration is highly recommended. The ideal dosage is 30-40mg per day, which should be divided into three or four doses because the compound has a short half-life. However, if you have never used the compound before, start out with a lower dosage- at least 10-20mg.
It is recommended that you cycle Stenabolic for 8 weeks off and 8 weeks on to keep your body protected from getting used to this compound. You can also pick 8-weeks on, 4 weeks off cycle but you need a physician approval it. With this protocol, you are guaranteed to get good results.
Stenabolic is highly effective in increasing stamina and endurance for bodybuilders and other athletes. In fact, it has been found to increase the two by more than 50% hence a perfect compound for bodybuilding. It is also very effective in burning fat, and that is why it is perfect for speeding up fat loss process. The mechanism behind it is superb, and that is why no harmful side effects have been reported so far. It is, therefore, one of the safest compounds in the market.
