Peptides Vs. SARMs: What is The Difference?

Peptides Vs. SARMs: What is The Difference?

Peptides or SARMs?

People often confuse peptides vs. SARMs. We will take the time in this article to provide high-level information on the difference between SARMs and Peptides.

The primary distinction between SARMs and peptides is that SARMs are steroidal and/or non-steroidal androgen receptor ligands that assist in building muscle by binding and activating androgen receptors. SARMs are different from traditional anabolic steroids because they are designed to more selectively target skeletal muscle and bone androgen receptors, whereas anabolic steroids bind to androgen receptors much more systemically (for example prostate and scalp). Peptides are amino acid sequences that form molecules that activate different hormone pathways in the body. For example, some well-known peptides which increase the body’s natural secretion of growth hormone are GHRP-2, GHRP-6, Ipamorelin, Hexarelin, CJC-1295 DAC, and CJC-1295 without DAC. Another popular peptide is called Melanotan II, which is being investigated as a way for individuals who may be prone to skin cancer can create a natural defense. Melanotan II increases melanin production, making it faster and easier to tan when exposed to sunlight UV radiation, instead of burning as easily.
