Pros

  • Has a potency similar to testosterone, mg for mg has a great potency.
  • Has a half-life of 60 hours (contrary to the 14 that are often said).
  • Has a high affinity for androgen receptors, increasing the oxidation of fatty acids.
  • Does not aromatize or convert to DHT therefore it has no androgenic capacity.
  • Raises transaminases much less than the rest of the less potent SARMS.
  • Basal metabolic rate increases.
  • Has a neuroprotective effect (increases the feeling of well-being and libido).

Cons

  • By increasing the dose it loses the selectivity characteristic of SARMS.
