S-23 is an orally active nonsteroidal SARM with a very high binding affinity to androgen receptors. This makes it stronger than other popular SARMS like Ostabolic (mk-2866) or Andarine (S-4). Therefore, the main effects of S-23 are increased muscle mass, decreased fat mass, and a decrease in the size of the prostate.
Additionally, in a study done on rats a dose equivalent to 15 milligrams (mg) for a 180lb male was shown to also increase bone mineral density, as well as promote muscle mass growth and fat loss. Hence, S-23 is versatile in that it can be used for bulking and for cutting.
