Cardarine | GW-501516
- Research has shown that Cardarine (GW-501516) binds to the PPAR receptor which in turn both activates AMP-activated protein kinase and gives stimulation to glucose uptake in skeletal muscle tissue.
- In this case, the reaction creates a rapid increase in fat loss as well as an increase in the expression of the gene that is involved in the disbursement of energy.
- Another benefit of GW-501516 is the fact that is non-catabolic meaning that its muscle tissue is preserved during fat loss.
Research has also shown that GW-501516 increases HDL (good cholesterol) levels and decreases LDL (bad cholesterol) levels.
In studies, GW-501516 has shown to drastically improve endurance and burn fat which is why this was banned by WADA as it gave athletes using this product an unfair advantage
- Misconceptions/Falsehoods of Cardarine:
There are claims online that Cardarine causes cancer as a result of a study where rodents were given over 40 times the recommended dose for a period of 2 years (104 weeks which is 10x longer than the recommended length of use). It is important to state that any drug or supplement such as protein and even multivitamins must be taken within the recommended doses so as to not have adverse effects
