its major advantage over anabolic steroids is that it offers similar positive results, with barely any side effects at all. Indeed, this is quite a unique compound, even when it is compared to other SARMS. For instance, it was proven that RAD140 has the unique property of countering the prostate-enlargement caused by testosterone use, which makes it a perfect stacking agent for highly androgenic steroids that can cause this undesired effect.
Testosterone is considered as the perfect comparison template in terms of androgenic and anabolic effects of different compounds, where a ratio of 1[00:10]0 is the baseline. In this regard, RAD140 has an impressive ratio of 90:1. This means that it is almost as anabolic as testosterone is, but it lacks the androgenic effects, which is a very positive thing, since most of the side effects associated to steroid use come from their androgenic effects.
In addition to that, it has been determined that you would need 40% more of testosterone for the same muscle growth as with RAD140, and yet it would take 60 times more of RAD140 to even start showing any prostate related side effects.
Regarding the affinity to androgen receptors, studies have shown that it has approximately 30% of the affinity seen with testosterone, and almost the same affinity as dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
The recommended dosages of RAD140 vary from 20 to 30 milligrams (mgs) per day, and the optimal cycle duration is 12-14 weeks.
