GW 501516 is a PPAR-delta (peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor delta) agonist. PPAR-delta is a nuclear hormone receptor that is activated by exercise and a main contributor in fat burning and cardiovascular fitness. In short, GW 501516 is an exercise mimetic; it allows your body to gain the benefits of cardiovascular exercise without additional exercise volume.
GW 501516, also known as Cardarine, provides significant fat loss and improved aerobic capacity benefits. It is best utilized by endurance athletes, those in a cutting phase, or for use during a physique competition prep.
Cardarine may lower LDL cholesterol levels and thus decrease the risk of heart attacks. Because it activates the PPAR-delta receptor, it could have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce oxidative damage to the blood vessels and tissues. The anti-inflammatory properties of Cardarine may also prevent brain cells from oxidative stress and could help reduce kidney inflammations. It tries to enhance nitric oxide levels in your arteries thereby, increasing vascularity and improving the wound healing process. Due to increased vascularity, it could help in boosting your endurance level which might allow you to prolong your workouts. Cardarine also tries to suppress the glucose metabolism in the liver as it could help in switching the energy source from glucose to fatty acids. Therefore, it may boost the fat-burning ability of your body and also inhibits insulin resistance.
Additionally, since GW 501516 is non-hormonal in nature, no post cycle therapy (PCT) is necessary. Although a SARM stack including GW 501516 might still require PCT based on the other components. The dose of 15mg daily has been shown to be the sweet spot for the best balance of performance enhancement and minimizing any possible negative side effects.
Generally SARMs stay quite a long in the body and take time to flush out of our system. Cardarine GW501516 has a half-life of approximately 24 hours. That means it stays in your body for 24 hours and participates in all functions.
