For athletes, it’s especially important to be aware of supplement contamination involving Ostarine. Unfortunately, some dietary supplement manufacturers illegally put Ostarine and other SARMs in their products and omit Ostarine from the label entirely or use misleading names to confuse consumers. While labels are unreliable, you should still look out for Ostarine’s many synonyms, including MK-2866, enobasarm, (2S)-3-(4-cyanophenoxy)-N-[4-cyano-3-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]-2-hydroxy-2-methylpropanamide, and GTx-024 on supplement labels.
Ostarine is a very real risk for athletes and it’s important for athletes to be informed consumers. This is especially true when it comes to supplements because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not analyze the safety, efficacy, or label accuracy of supplements before they are sold to consumers.
Many athletes believe they need dietary supplements to perform at their best. There are often no warning signs that a product is unsafe, and many athletes have suffered health problems or positive drug tests and sanctions from using products that are incorrectly labeled or contaminated with dangerous ingredients, such as
steroids, pharmaceuticals, or research drugs. (www.ejsportspharmacy.com)
