When you’re talking about SARMs, you’ll hear about the same names time and again. Ostarine, Testolone, and LGD-4033 Ligandrol. But in this LGD 3303 review, I’m going to tell you about a SARM is relatively new, and which causes a lot of confusion as I’ll explain.
It’s all in the name, but it’s also in the results. So I’m going to tell you about what LGD 3303 actually is, and how to use it. I’ll show you LGD 3303 results you can expect, and compare them to its closest relative.
Information is scant, even on something basic like the LGD 3303 SARM cycle, but I’ll tell you the best information available right now, as well as my own personal experience.
Because it’s a new SARM you’ll also find that there are not places that have LGD 3303 SARM for sale, so I’ll also talk you through the quality of the online SARMs sellers that sell it, so you can spot who to trust.
What Is LGD 3303?
Right at the start of this LGD 3303 review, you might have done a double-take and been confused, when I mentioned it straight after LGD 4033 Ligandrol.
There’s also another confusion because some people inaccurately call it LGD 3033. Put that all together and it’s easy to think that there are either three different SARMs out there with similar names, or people are getting LGD 4033 Ligandrol confused.
Let me put you straight. There is no such thing as LGD 3033. It’s called LGD 3303. And it’s not LGD 4033 (Ligandrol) either. In fact, this SARM is a new derivative of LGD 4033.
Ligand pharmaceuticals are the company who developed LGD 4033, and back in 2007, they began pre-clinical studies on animals into a new derivative called LGD 3303, a refined and structurally different SARM.
But what actually is the difference in terms of effects? And because it’s new, and even more untested than most other SARMs, should you be using LGD 3303 for muscle growth results at all?
The Benefits Of LGD 3303
Officially, LGD 3303 is undergoing studies as a support for people with osteoporosis. It’s reported to be a full agonist on muscle tissue, which is exactly what a SARM is.
Let me explain, a selective androgen receptor modulator does exactly what it sounds like. It selectively modulates androgen receptors in our body. Specifically, they target androgen receptors in muscle, which relay messages, and are amplified. These amplified messages basically scream at the body to build more muscle.
That’s exactly how an anabolic steroid works, but SARMs do it more selectively because they are selective modulators. So you don’t get the same range of nasty side- effects.
LGD 3303 appears to be quite androgenic in nature because it is also a partial agonist on the human prostate, which means that it aggressiveness is higher than some other SARMs out there.
Initial research has suggested that it can increase muscle mass, and bone mineral density. I emphasize it’s only mice and rats that have been studied, but the trials also found no negative impacts in other parts of the body, in androgenic areas where things like anabolic steroids can wreak havoc, like the male hair follicle. Take a look at what was said:
“LGD-3303 increased the levator ani muscle weight above eugonadal levels but had greatly reduced activity on the prostate, never increasing the ventral prostate weight to >50% of eugonadal levels even at high doses. Ovariectomized female rats were treated with LGD-3303, alendronate, or combination treatment to study the effects on bone. DXA scans, histomorphometry, and biomechanics were performed. LGD-3303 increased muscle weight in females rats. In addition, LGD-3303 increased BMD and BMC at both cortical and cancellous bone sites.”
It’s not widely used by bodybuilders and sportspeople, but where it is it is reported to significantly boost lean muscle gains in a very short space of time.
One of the reasons it’s gaining popularity is that it’s currently not on any anti-doping list. That’s because it’s so new that they haven’t been able to incorporate it into tests globally. That should tell you what you need to know about the potential LGD 3303 effects you can benefit from.
LGD 3303 Results You Can Expect
So specifically, people using LGD 3303 are reporting significant lean muscle gains and even muscle retention during long periods of low-calorie intake. Plus, it’s also potentially strengthening the density of bones, meaning the infrastructure supporting your stronger and larger muscles is developing as well, which won’t put a strain on your body.
People are routinely reporting online that you can see muscle gains within a couple of weeks, and after one cycle lean, dry muscle mass gains really begin to pop.
There aren’t that many genuine LGD 3303 before and after photos studies out there in the community, because of how little people are cottoning on to the fact that it’s potent and seems to have a low potential for side effects. However that’s not the whole story, and I’ll make sure you’re are fully aware of side effects in a moment.
LGD 3303 Dosage
See you’ve probably already guessed that it’s difficult to tell you what the correct LGD 3303 dosage should be, even if you can find genuine LGD 3303 for sale.
What I can tell you is that I tried it in one cycle recently. It was awesome, I was very careful with the dosage.
I felt like my metabolic action improved, weight was being cut. You’ll feel stronger more quickly like I did, and lean muscle tone and mass definitely improves rapidly.
The LGD 3303 half-life fed into the dosage that I decided on. According to studies, it’s got a half-life of 6-12 hours, which means you could get away with a single dose per day, as long as you are working out really regularly, or you could dose twice per day to make sure it’s working on your muscles all the time.
As with most SARMs, and unsurprisingly considering the dose of its sister LGD 4033, people advocate the best results from a dose range of between 10 mg and 30 mg. Personally, as this is so untested, I would keep the dose of the low end of that scale, and I used just 10 mg, and wouldn’t really go higher than 20 mg.
The Ideal LGD 3303 SARM Cycle?
Because it’s quite aggressive, with muscle and cutting fat, a short LGD 3303 SARM cycle is best, especially if you are new to using SARMs, or new to working out intensely. With me, this is what I would advocate, and have seen most people who are sensible doing, is to start with a short cycle of six weeks, and then extend it to the second cycle of eight weeks.
You’ll need a gap to recover between cycles, and I would advocate at least four weeks, but potentially six weeks. You can read more about recommended SARMs cycles and stacking if you click here.
LGD 3303 Side Effects
You’ll see some LGD 3303 reviews out there claiming that there aren’t any side effects from using this SARM sensibly. In fact, I had to laugh at one review of LGD 3303 recently that I read, which first claimed it had androgenic side effects, and then later claimed it didn’t alter testosterone levels and you wouldn’t need a PCT treatment.
Let me be clear here, and clear up the confusion around this for you.
LGD 3303 is aggressive and androgenic, and although it targets muscle tissue and not other androgenic areas of the body, it does alter testosterone levels, that’s how it works.
So unequivocally, you will suffer testosterone drop, which is exactly why people keep mentioning symptoms of fatigue, hot flushes, changes in body hair, sex drive, things like that especially towards the end of an LGD 3303 SARM cycle.
The bottom line is that you will need a good PCT supplement when using LGD 3303.
Finding LGD 3303 SARM For Sale
So look, cut through the hype, and you still see impressive LGD 3303 results. But this is a relatively untested chemical in the hands of athletes and bodybuilders, so the long-term effects are really not known, so dosage is important.
But you’ll make things even more unpredictable if you can’t find real LGD 3303 for sale. For me, I found very, very few places online that sell real SARMs at all. And half of them don’t sell LGD 3303 because it’s so new and not well known.
Unfortunately for me and many others, at the end of March 2022, the biggest SARMs seller in the USA Science.bio went out of business.
This comes after Proven Peptides and SARMS 4 YOU (amongst others) also went out of business, making it far harder to source high-purity SARMs at good prices. However, you do still have several quality options.
The other problem here is that the copyright holder for the Ligandrol name and formula have started sending cease-and-desist letters to American companies selling it.
Therefore, you’ll find it very hard to buy Ligandrol any more. That also applies to LGD-3303 as well.
You’re more likely to find it for sale on sites outside the USA where it’s harder to legally intervene to stop it being sold.
However, you still have some great options for SARMs in the USA, and internationally.
- CHEMYO Liquid & Powder SARMs
If you’re looking for high-purity SARMs from a USA-based seller, then CHEMYO are pretty much the only great deal still out there.
The SARMs industry has taken an incredible hit in the past 18 months due to the pandemic, global shipping costs, the Chinese SARMs manufacture ban, regulatory pressure in the USA, and FDA scrutiny.
All that has forced a ton of companies to close, and these guys are one of the few left standing. Thankfully, they offer a good range of highly pure and great value SARMs still.
They don’t sell Ligandrol, but they do sell really high purity Andarine S-4, and RAD-140. In terms of the effects that are similar, RAD-140 is probably closest amongst the similar strong androgenic SARMs.
Liquid RAD-140 costs just $69.99 for 50 mL dropper bottle, dosed at 10 mg/mL. Note the large 50 mL dropper bottle size and the strong dose. You’re getting a lot of SARMs your money when most of the other sellers only give you a 30 mL dropper bottle around the same money, it’s a good deal.
They also sell SARMs pairs. Not full stacks, but complimentary pairs of SARMs at a 10% discount.
The RAD140 + MK-677 pair will give you significant muscle growth, hardening of muscle tone, plus strength and energy outputs in a similar way to Ligandrol.
Note that they also sell SARMs powder. This is far cheaper for a full gram. You can also buy the suspension liquid cheaply from them, so you can mix your own liquid SARMs together from the raw materials and save around 40% on buying premixed.
- Swiss Chems SARMs capsules
Swiss Chems sell very high purity capsules. They have a good product range, and prices have dropped dramatically in the past year from these guys, by around 30%. This leaves them in the same ballpark as liquid SARMs for price.
Capsules are far more pleasurable to use. You don’t have to worry about dosing, dealing with powder or liquid, and they are very discreet and precise.
They don’t have LGD4033 or LGD3303 either, but they will sell you 60 capsules of RAD-150 for $89.95, dosed at 10 mg per capsule.
- Brutal Force SARMs Alternatives
I wanted to put this in here because I’ve started using natural alternative supplements for bodybuilding recently. This experimentation has worked for me so I want to mention it here.
These SARMs alternatives are constructed from high quality natural ingredients to mimic the output result of SARMs.
For example, the supplement called ANDALEAN mimics the results of Andarine. Not as potently, but certainly noticeable.
This gives some great reasons to use these alternatives:
- Can be stacked with SARMs
- Can be run post cycle
- Can offset PCT problems
- Ongoing supplement benefits
- Completely safe and natural
- No testosterone drop problems
Each supplement costs $60 for a month’s supply. If you buy two months, you’ll get a third month’s worth of pills free. Alongside that you’ll get free global shipping.
They also do stacks. These are great value. They do a strength stack, a bulking stack, a maintenance stack, and a cutting stack.
You’ll save around 40% on the individual supplement prices. You’ll also get an additional month free when you buy two months. And you’ll get free global shipping.
Definitely not as potent the SARMs, but definitely far better than natural bodybuilding alone. You’ll feel stronger, build more muscle, and burn more fat using these than you ever can on your own.
