There are various forms of SARMs most of which have two primary methods of use. The most common method of using SARMs products is either in liquid form or capsule form. With regards to SARMs liquid vs capsule form, there is an ongoing debate about which method is optimal for achieving desired results. There are positives and negatives to each method, a few of which will be discussed below.
Legality of SARMs
There are a few key differences between liquid and capsule form of SARMs. Firstly, liquid SARMs are legal, as they are identified and sold as research chemicals, deemed “not suitable for human consumption.” This makes liquid form of the product more easily accessible.
Contrarily, importing or selling capsules is more of grey area, as the nature of capsuled products is designed for human consumption. That being said, there is no current formal legislation deeming SARMs illegal in the United States or Canada. There is caution to individuals selling and consuming all research chemicals due to the risky and un-regulated nature of the products and the lack of current research on effectiveness as well as long –term effects.
Bio-Molecular Absorption of SARMs: Liquid vs Capsule
Secondly, the human digestive system digests the two products differently which can alter their effectiveness. A capsulated form of SARMs allows the ingredients to be released into the digestive system over a prolonged period of time. This is considered optimal, as in order to gain the best results the body needs time to absorb all of the beneficial ingredients. When liquid is consumed, a good portion of the product is immediately disintegrated once it reaches stomach acid. This makes proper dosing challenging as there is no way to tell the actual amount of SARMs active ingredients that the body utilized post stomach acid absorption.
Shelf Life of SARMs
Additionally, the shelf life of capsules is approximately three years, vs liquid form which only lasts for about a year. The reason for this is due to the fillers in the product preserving the active ingredients for an extended period of time.
Similarities of Capsules and Liquid Form of SARMs
Both liquid and capsule forms of SARMs begin in a powder state. The powder is then either dissolved into a solution or compressed into a capsule form. Both methods of consuming SARMs are effective. The debate is mostly in the level of effectiveness of each form. The consumer can achieve desired results with either method. Many consumers choose liquid because the dosages are easier to exact, though often consumers lack the knowledge about how the liquid is absorbed into the body, as mentioned above.
Overall, the liquid form appears to be the most trusted source. There is no scientific proof supporting the many claims that SARMs cannot come in a capsule form, contrary to what some consumers are arguing. As SARMs originates in a powder form, converting the product to capsule/pill/tablet form is a simple process and does not negatively alter the effectiveness of the product in any way. Research Chemicals in their nature have many “grey areas” and mixed reviews. Research is ongoing with the products and as more research develops, there will be more information for consumers with regards to the most effective method of consumption. At this time, both methods are proven effective, and though they each have pros and cons the method of consumption of liquid vs capsule is primarily preference based.
