Can SARMs Cause Heart Problems?
The safety of SARMs is a grey area, and although it’s safer than steroids, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t have the potential for severe side effects, such as heart problems.
SARMs work by selectively targeting the muscle tissue to increase strength and mass. While this reduces minor side effects that are often seen with steroid use, unstudied mechanisms can cause endomyocardial injury (a group of diseases that affect the heart).
Anabolic steroids such as testosterone affecting the heart in human patients have been studied and well-reported, however, heart problems with the use of SARMs are not that well-known yet.
Actually, this study is the first reported case of a patient suffering from acute myocarditis caused by SARMs.
According to the study, it can be deduced that a patient with a history of substance abuse, dietary supplementations, and pre-existing conditions is at higher risk of heart problems with SARMs use.
The FDA has issued a warning that SARMs can cause liver, kidney, and heart damage, however, they are still widely available to buy online. If you choose to use SARMs, you must do so carefully and monitor your health and side effects.
