What is Ligandrol?
Ligandrol, or LGD 4033, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (or SARM). Ligandrol is legal to possess, though one may wish to be careful when using it for athletic gain. A SARM is a type of drug that binds to specific parts of the body. In this case, Ligandrol binds to the muscles and bones of the body, making them stronger. The FDA does not endorse the human use of Ligandrol, as we do not know the long term affects that LGD 4033 use might have.
Below is the Elite Health Online podcast discussing Ligandrol, how it works, and the risks involved.
Is Ligandrol a Banned Substance?
From an athletic perspective, Ligandrol is a banned substance. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has placed Ligandrol on it’s banned substances list for the drug’s ability to increase muscle mass, strength, and speed. This means that if an athlete is drug tested after using LGD 4033, they will produce a positive test and likely be banned from competition. Though not confirmed in lab studies, Ligandrol can apparently remain in the body’s system for up to 21 days.
Is Ligandrol Legal to Purchase?
LGD 4033 is not legally sold as a dietary supplement and should not be taken as such. The FDA has yet to approve Ligandrol for human consumption. While there have been some studies done, there has yet to be enough data to demonstrate the safety or risks of the drug. We currently have very little definite knowledge of the long term risks present with Ligandrol. For more information, click here. In the short term, we have a better idea of some side effects, but without proper dosage, Ligandrol can cause serious harm.
However, Ligandrol is legal to possess or sell in the form of laboratory dosages. This is how many companies are allowed to sell LGD 4033 to the general public. If you decide to purchase Ligandrol, we recommend Elite Health Online for all your SARM needs. Many online stores might sell a tainted product or accidentally spoil their supply if they get it shipped in from overseas. LGD 4033 is a delicate chemical, and extreme changes caused by shipping might damage the product. Elite Health Online is based in the U.S. and will happily adjust to any concerns you might have about a questionable chemical shipment.
