Research Notes Ostarine, also known as MK-2866 or enobosarm, is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that has gained attention in the fitness and bodybuilding communities. It is important to note that while there is some scientific research on ostarine, it is not approved for medical use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is prohibited in many sports organizations. Here are some potential research benefits of ostarine, based on available scientific studies:
- A study published in the Journal of Cachexia, Sarcopenia, and Muscle demonstrated that ostarine increased lean body mass and improved physical function in cancer patients with muscle wasting.
- Another study published in the Journal of Gerontology showed that ostarine increased muscle mass and strength in older individuals, helping to counteract age-related muscle loss.
- Enhanced bone health: Ostarine has been shown to have positive effects on bone health by increasing bone mineral density and preventing bone loss. This makes it potentially useful for conditions such as osteoporosis.
- A study published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research found that ostarine increased bone mineral density and improved bone strength in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.
- Another study published in the Journal of Musculoskeletal & Neuronal Interactions showed that ostarine increased bone formation and prevented bone loss in rats.
- Injury recovery: Some research suggests that ostarine may aid in injury recovery and rehabilitation by promoting healing and tissue regeneration.
- A study published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research showed that ostarine improved the healing of rotator cuff injuries in rats.
- Another study published in PLOS ONE found that ostarine promoted muscle regeneration and improved recovery after muscle injury in mice.
It’s important to note that while these studies suggest potential benefits, ostarine is still being researched and evaluated for safety and effectiveness. Furthermore, the use of ostarine for performance enhancement or in sports is considered doping and is banned by most athletic organizations.
