Ostarine ( MK-2866 ) – by Advanced Pharma, is the most potent and anabolic muscle-building product to hit the fitness world in recent years !
Known as a “SARM”, or Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator, Ostarine has an incredibly powerful and unique ability to block and/or stimulate androgen receptors in a selective, tissue-specific manner – focusing almost entirely on muscle tissue and bone.
Due to this selective nature, SARMs, and Ostarine in particular, are known to show similar muscle and strength-enhancing effects as traditional anabolics and prohormones, but without the all-too-common dangerous and unwanted side effects !
- Highly Anabolic even at low doses ( 3mg per day )
- Excellent for bulking or cutting cycles
- Can be ‘stacked’ with other SARMs
- Ideal for body recomposition
- Can be used as a bridge between prohormone cycles
- Increases aerobic and anaerobic endurance
- Stimulates lean muscle & bone density increases
- Female friendly
- Non-toxic to the liver
- No negative effects on blood pressure
- No need for PCT
- Directions for use:
- As a dietary supplement take 1-2 caps daily, for maximum gains take 3 caps spread evenly throughout the day. Do not exceed the recommended amount or take longer than 4 continuous weeks without an 8 week off period.
- Servings Per container: 90
- Serving size: 1-3
- ((2S)-3-(4-cyanophenoxy)-N-[4-cyano-3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanamide) 10mg
- Other ingredients:

- Cellulose powder
- Gelatin Capsule Shell
Ostarine first hit the map after extensive research found that it:
- Stimulates testosterone in bone, muscle, and the brain
- Block testosterone’s actions in the prostate and skin — eliminating prostate growth and acne
- Increases lean muscle mass and reduces fat !!
- Enhances physical performance and libido
- Is nonsteroidal and binds to the androgen receptors with high affinity and selectivity
- Doesn’t bind to the estrogen receptor / cannot be converted to estrogen — no need for an estrogen blocker; and
- Demonstrates a lack of masculinizing side effects in women — women won’t develop “manly” features
* Please note – these benefit claims are associated with the original clinical trial on Ostarine
Using Ostarine to Achieve Fitness Goals
With such a wide array of benefits, Ostarine has a large number of applications to help bodybuilders and athletes achieve their fitness goals. Below, you’ll find more supporting information for how to most effectively use Ostarine for a bulking or cutting phase.
Bulking with Ostarine
More often than not, Ostarine is use to “bulk”and gain lean muscle because of it’s highly anabolic nature. In fact, typical users experience 7-9 pounds in increased lean muscle mass during an 8-week cycle. For bulking, the most recommended dosage is 25-30 mg of Ostarine per day.
The best part about bulking with Ostarine is that the muscle gains have been found to be very “dry” and dense, without significant muscle loss following the cycle.
It’s important to note that it’s not recommended to go above 30 mg per day, as significantly increased daily dosages for longer cycles can eventually suppress testosterone (as with any “muscle” supplements).
Cutting with Ostarine
For those looking to lose fat, Ostarine is soon to be your best friend. If you’re familiar with cutting at a high level, you’re familiar with how muscle loss is nearly inevitable curing these cutting phases. As it pertains to muscle wasting prevention, due to it being so anabolic, Ostarine helps to prevent significant muscle and strength loss during times of caloric deficits due to its nutrient partitioning effects.
In terms of daily dosages, it’s recommended to follow a 15-20 mg per day protocol (for 6-8 week cycles)
