Although SARMs are not considered a legal food or supplement for human consumption, they are sold as research compounds in the US, UK, Australia, and South America. Some countries have banned SARM use altogether, however. These substances are mostly sold for research purposes, although some users choose to take them for recreational purposes. Read on to find out how they are classified. Listed below are some of the pros and cons of using SARMs for bodybuilding.
If SARMs were illegal in the United States, the FDA, DEA, and other government agencies would have been unable to regulate their use. However, the FDA has not yet passed any laws against them, making it legal for people to buy and possess these products. The SARMs Control Act, a bipartisan bill, proposed reclassification of SARMs as Schedule III controlled substances. The DEA has remained silent on the issue, so a number of states are waiting for federal action to make SARMs illegal.
While SARMs are legal to sell as research chemicals, they are not considered dietary supplements. According to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), SARMs pose serious health risks. They increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and liver damage. Furthermore, SARMs are not FDA-approved for human consumption, and they are not considered a dietary supplement. In addition to being illegal, SARMs are not recommended for recreational use.
