AC-262 is a selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM) that does not have any steroidal properties manufactured and marketed by ACADIA Pharmaceuticals. The inception of the studies to found this SARM began in 2007 with researchers taking clinical trials on animals.
Nevertheless, the available literature shows that the drug can manage diseases such as Alzheimer's and prostate cancer while at the same time promoting muscle growth.
How AC 262 Works
Table of Contents
It works the same way other SARMs do by binding to androgen receptors to cause muscle strength without having to affect the prostate. Ordinarily, the androgen receptor interferes with the development of sexual organs and tissues, and this can be even more serious when combined with testosterone compounds. Unlike steroidal compounds that promise huge gains, yet with far severe risks of cancer of the prostate and shrinking testicles, AC-262, 536 does you all these gains risk-free. For women bodybuilders, you don't want to worry about clitoris enlargement. It protects you from these side effects by binding directly with the androgen receptor. By so doing, it activates the specific bone cells without negatively affecting the liver enzymes or damaging sexual tissues. The working of this drug has been equated to that of ACP-105 because of its effectiveness.
How Powerful is AC-262?
Clinical studies have shown that the compound gives over 60% of the anabolic effects. One may get from using testosterone but with as little androgenic activity of 27%. Suffice to say that the drug has an androgenic ratio of 2.5:1 compared to the typical anabolic steroids that have a rate of 90:1. But this doesn't mean that you do not expect any androgenic effects; after all, it is a SARM. You need to watch out for the prostate gland since it is the highest target and one that measures the androgenic effects of SARMs and steroids. RAD-140 is perhaps a SARM with the highest androgenic ratio on the market. It shouldn't be used to mean that RAD-140 is a better AC-262 when measured in terms of increased performance. Instead, the rate shows how significant the effects can be when you take higher dosages of the compound.
Benefits of the Compound
Although there is limited literature on the compound, the available evidence suggests that it has the following benefits:
- Increased muscle mass
- Numerous studies show that the drug can target and significantly increase pelvic muscle.
- Subsequently, the mechanisms of the drug can be compared to testosterone safe for its minimal side effects.
- Can Be Used to Treat Alzheimer's Disease
The drug has been found to minimize the effects of Alzheimer's and increasing spatial memory control. However, there are no scientific studies on human beings that substantiate these claims.
Ability to Protect against Prostate Cancer
AC-262 has been found to minimize the risk of prostate cancer, thanks to its effect on dihydrotestosterone (DHT). It is particularly crucial because DHT is linked to cases of prostate cancer. Therefore, it is good news that the drug inhibits the production and action of DHT.
How to Dose AC-252356
Clinical trials on mice have shown that AC-262,536 would work if dosages of 10mg per kg to 30mg per kg of body mass would work just fine. However, this benchmark would not be applicable for human beings since no studies on human beings have been conducted to agree on the right dosages conclusively. Nevertheless, it is recommended to take dosages of 10mg-30mg based on the reviews thus far.
Should You Take a Post Cycle Therapy?
Like with all other SARMs, it is essential to consider post cycle therapy (PCT) when taking AC-262. It means you will be able to retain muscle mass you gained while on the dose. The reason you should cycle is that you will balance the hormones and that you will avoid overdependence on the drugs. Note that the period you spend on your PCT should be equal to the period you were on the drug. While it is not necessary to subject yourself to PCT while taking SARMs, it might be essential to take a PCT for a shorter period. The most preferred drugs post cycle is Test Boosters. However, some compounds such as GW501516 and MK677, users may not need to subject themselves to a post cycle therapy.
AC-262 356 is undoubtedly a powerful drug that could go a long way in stepping up your performance. The fact that the compound is equally active as testosterone, but without the feared androgenic side effects, it is worth trying out.
