Ostarine and Tendons/Ligaments

  1. Ostarine and Tendons/Ligaments


    I have seen it touted on a few forums and fitness sources that Ostarine has beneficial effects on joints and increases collagen synthesis in them.

    Is there anything to substantiate this rumor? I used to be interested in AAS for this very purpose but upon further research decided it really wasnt something they are good for.

    Asked the same question on another forum.Basically,it seems to alleviate minor niggles,but won't touch any serious conditions(unfortunately!!)

  3. From RussianStar: One of the outstanding facets of Ostarine is that it doesnt just build muscle, it increases tendon strength, improves the health of the ligaments, increases bone density and increases the rate at wich collagen is turned over. To achieve this a dose of 12mg ed is adequate, and promotes improvement in joint movement that can be seen after just 6-8 days, this dose is very effective for treating injuries like shin splints, and can be used post operation to help maintain muscle and speed up the recovery of the limb, (Bone/Tendon) that has been operated on.

  4. Interesting. Thanks for the actual references; I will look them up using my school library access and let yall know what I find.

  5. from personal experience of 2 ostarine cycles, I'd say it's ok but its not magic. I have a shoulder problem from too many +90lb dips so I thought I'd try it. So the osta had a very slight positive effect but I still can't do dips. It did however increase my strength a bit though. Had a couple PR's on ostarine, 450 deadlift and 325 bench.

    But I will be running deca in about 3 weeks, and see if that can help the old shoulder.
