Don’t Buy Cardarine (GW-501516) Until You Read Our This Review!
Think fat burners and the most likely candidates that you may be recommended by your trainer are Clenbuterol, DNP & the ECA (Ephedrine, Caffeine, Aspirin) stack.
We would never in our wildest dreams consider doing DNP, no matter how desperate we are to lose weight.
If you have ever done Clenbuterol, then you’ll be aware of some of the nasty sides that can pop up at even low doses.
The only thing that might work without causing too many problems is the ECA stack. But even that can make you jittery and wired up. There’s no way around it as all of these compounds work by stimulating the sympathomimetic nervous system.
What surprises us though is that there’s no mention of Cardarine when people talk about fat burners and body recomposition compounds.
Why, we have people using Testolone to boost vascularity when clearly, Cardarine can provide much better results without causing the suppression that comes with it.
If this is the first time that you’ve read about using Cardarine as a fat burner, then here are 8 reasons why it may be terribly underrated for what it can do.
#1 – It can burn fat even when you are sedentary
Cardarine is a PPAR delta agonist that increased fatty acid oxidation when administered to a group of healthy, inactive volunteers.
To be more specific, these volunteers used stored body fat as a source of energy and it was proven due to an increase in the levels of ABCA1 and CPT1 in their bodies. Both of these are genes used to burn fat.
This was in healthy men who were not exercising mind you. The results can be a lot more pronounced if you use Cardarine when you are exercising and eating a well-balanced, but calorie deficient meal.
A lot of seasoned bodybuilders probably might not find it to be that effective since they are used to the extreme shredding that’s caused due to Clenbuterol and other pharmaceutical-grade fat burners.
But for a natural athlete or a recreational user, Cardarine can provide noticeable results.
#2 – It can burn belly fat
This alone is enough reason to consider adding Cardarine at low doses to both, your cutting stack as well as body recomposition stack.
According to a clinical trial conducted on 13 obese men who had a high body fat percentage, high levels of belly fat and an unhealthy lipid profile, just 2.5mg of Cardarine every day reduced LDL and triglycerides and fatty acids.
Further, there are tons of anecdotal reports that suggest that the fat loss while using Cardarine is most pronounced near the midsection, where the body tends to hoard the most stubborn fat.
So, if your fat loss has plateaued at the last 10 lbs., then Cardarine, even at low doses might help you break through it.
#3 – GW501516 can reduce triglycerides and LDL
Before GSK decided to pull the plug on Cardarine, it was being investigated as a potential treatment for metabolic diseases, like Type-II Diabetes and Dyslipidemia.
All the fat burners that are commonly used by bodybuilders are known for causing cardiac events that can even be fatal in the long run.
Clenbuterol for example, has been linked with atrial fibrillation and sudden palpitations.
Cardarine is probably the only compound in the world that can burn fat while reducing triglycerides and LDL levels.
Ideally, Cardarine should be thrown in as on-cycle support with anabolic steroids and SARMS. Not in high doses mind you. Even low doses can be surprisingly effective in keeping your lipids in check.
#4 – Cardarine prevents plaque buildup in arteries
Cardarine boosts the level of nitric oxide in arteries which in turn prevents oxidative damage caused to them.
Even at low doses, it helped reduce inflammation and tissue damage in arteries of mice.
At performance enhancement doses, which are typically used by athletes and bodybuilders, we believe that it might help your arteries from hardening which can be very beneficial.
Particularly if you are a long term AAS user or someone above the age of 40.
#5 – GW501516 reduces inflammation
Cardarine has also been associated with reduced inflammation, increased wound healing and reduced damage caused by oxidative stress.
For an athlete, that transforms into faster recovery with reduced instances of injuries and niggles.
In a clinical study, when Cardarine was applied on diabetic wounds on mice, it sped up the recovery of the wounds. This again indicates that this might be one of the most beneficial compounds to have been discovered in recent times.
#6 – Cardarine does not stimulate the CNS
CNS stimulants might provide short term cognitive benefits, while increasing fat burning by amplifying the body’s temperature by up to 10-15%. However, the sudden spike in energy is usually followed by an equally sudden crash.
Users feel great at the gym but they may find demotivated, lethargic and tired as the effect of the stimulant wears off.
Also, constant usage might make it impossible for some people to sleep.
Cardarine is not a CNS stimulant. It does not increase your body temperature. In fact, you can perform all the cardio and HIIT that you want to during the cycle.
It does not make you jittery or cause palpitations.
#7 – GW501516 is the ultimate endurance booster
Cardarine spares glucose oxidation in the body thereby delaying the onset of low blood sugar, allowing the athlete to go on for longer without getting fatigued.
Some athletes have reported a 30% boost in their endurance levels while using Cardarine.
If you are a long distance runner, this will allow you to go on for 30% more time at the same intensity without any stimulation or energy fluctuation. That’s incredible.
In fact, there is no other compound in the performance enhancement space that’s as effective as Cardarine in boosting endurance.
#8 – Cardarine improves lean muscle mass
Clinical studies conducted on mice have proven that Cardarine has a slight, but noticeable anabolic effect on lean muscle.
This makes it a great compound to add to an aggressive cutting stack along with a compound like Ostarine, which will help preserve your lean muscle.
There is a theory that Clenbuterol is also mildly anabolic. But most bodybuilders dis that as an empty claim.
