SARMs emerging as doping products in sportsNon-steroidal and tissue-selective anabolic agents such as Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators (SARMs) are being sold for their performance enhancing qualities on the black market, as per researchers from the German Sport University Cologne in Germany.

This availability of authentic SARMs was recently highlighted after detecting Anadrine in a product sold on the Internet and is getting popular as SARMs provide advantages of traditional anabolic/androgenic steroids such as testosterone with fewer unwanted side effects.

Mario Thevis, Ph.D., said that the study highlighted that the misuse of therapeutics without clinical approval cannot be overruled.
