RAD-140, also known as Testolone, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that has gained popularity among bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts. It is known for its ability to increase muscle mass and strength, without the negative side effects commonly associated with anabolic steroids.
RAD-140 works by selectively targeting androgen receptors in muscle and bone tissue, which leads to an increase in protein synthesis and muscle growth. This makes it an ideal choice for those looking to gain lean muscle mass and improve overall body composition.
One of the main benefits of RAD-140 is that it has minimal androgenic side effects, unlike traditional anabolic steroids which can lead to hair loss, acne, and other negative effects. Additionally, RAD-140 has been shown to be effective in reducing prostate enlargement, a common side effect of anabolic steroid use.
RAD-140 has a high oral bioavailability, which means it can be taken orally without the need for injections. It has a long half-life, which allows for once-daily dosing.
Overall, RAD-140 is a powerful and effective SARM that can help users achieve their fitness goals without the negative side effects of traditional anabolic steroids.
Due to the way RAD140 binds to the androgen receptor, different cells respond by releasing different proteins, with only some androgen receptors being activated throughout the body. This stimulation results in androgen receptor activation in bone and muscle cell, rather than raising liver enzymes or affecting sexual tissue.
1 Increase muscle mass
RAD-140 is popular in the bodybuilding community for its muscle-building effects. Much like other SARMs, it offers a way to increase muscle growth without the unwanted effects of conventional steroids.
2 Weight Loss
RAD-140 indirectly reduces body fat by increasing muscle and bone cells, which are more metabolically expensive to maintain than fat cells. By increasing muscle mass, an increase in the metabolism is seen, which results in easier weight loss.
3 Reduce the side effects of testosterone
When taken in conjunction with anabolic steroids, initial studies indicated that RAD- 140 reduces the side effects of testosterone stimulation on the prostate and seminal vesicles of monkeys. This means that RAD140 has the ability to selectively stimulate muscle and bone growth while reducing the effects on sex tissue such as the prostate or clitoris.
4 A boost in sleep
Interestingly, some RAD-140 users report better sleep, but there are no studies to back this effect up. Same goes for reports of its ability to enhance sexual performance-although this could theoretically be tied to its testosterone-mimicking effects.
5 Brain Effects
In a study of rats, RAD-140 protected brain nerves against injury from amyloid beta. Aditinall, RAD-140 and testosterone were equally effective at protecting against neurotoxins.
There is no set dose for RAD140, as it has yet to be clinically investigated in humans.
Bodybuilding resources usually recommend a dose of 10 to 30 mg per day. For women, a dose of 5 to 10 mg per day is recommended. Users typically cycle RAD-140 for 8 to 12 weeks. The off-cycle can vary, some recommend they last as long as the cycles, while others think that a shorter off-cycle of 6-8 weeks is sufficient. Veterans will tailor these depending on their labs, checking to see how the cycles affected their liver markers and hormone balance. RAD-140 appears to have good biailaility. According to research in monkeys, about 70% of the drug is absorbed into the body when ingested.
Although great on its own, RAD140 can be stacked with other SARMs for added benefits tailored to your individual needs. Many users report stacking RAD- 140 (Testolone) with MK-677 (Nutrobal) and MK -2866 (Ostarine) to provide a powerhouse for building muscle, burning fat, boosting growth hormones, joint recovery and improved sleep. Testolone is particularly beneficial for older users who benefit from reduced muscle wastage, joint health and better sleep for recovery.

RAD-140 is a very new investigational substance. Its safety and side effects have not been clnically evaluated yet. Unlike testosterone, RAD-140 does not cause prostate enlargement or testicular shrinkage.
However, RAD-140 still has the potential to cause testosterone -related side effects:
●Breast tenderness/growth in men
●Abnormal body hair growth in women
●Changes in sex drive
●Male pattern baldness/hair loss
●Mood swings and anxiety/depression
●Nausea and vomiting
If you're looking for increased endurance, stamina, fat loss and muscle gains without the side effects of testosterone, RAD-140 is a great choice for your next cycle. The only obvious concern with RAD-140 is the limited clinical human studies that have been performed in the scientific community.
