  • Wow!! Excellent reasons list. I should show this to my wife. She recently started working and joined gym to cut few pounds. I am not sure but besides being very energetic, she is not getting the result. Maybe I am expecting it too early, it has been just 2 weeks. Well I have also come to know about CARDARINE – GW-501516 which helps pretty fast in loosing extra fat. Should I buy for her? Any suggestion about these SARM?

    • Hello Steven, thanks for your apperication! You should definitely show it to Your wife.

      You have to remember, that getting results is just a part of whole process. The most important thing is to feel better with yourself, when focusing on raw results can be delicately demotivating. You should give Her more time, and of course ensure support for her actions!

      GW-501516 is certainly great product, but in my opinion is too early for it. If Your wife just start with going on gym, I would recommend basic stack, with substances like caffeine, green tea extract, and l-carnitine.
