SARMs – selective androgen receptor modulators – are becoming increasingly popular in the sports scene. Besides real and not quite real SARMs like Ligandrol, Andarine, Ostarine, Ibutamoren, YK-11, Cardarine and Stenabolic, there is also Testolone (RAD-140). And about the latter, we want to inform you here about the following topics and questions:
- What is RAD-140?
- How does the SARM work and are there also side effects?
- Where can I buy Testolone?
- What experience have users of Testolone made?
- What dosage should I take and when is the best time to take it? Can Testolone also be stacked?
- And what is the actual legal situation in Germany and in competitions?
Note: This blog post is only to inform you about RAD-140 (Testolone), because the trade, purchase and use of these substances is regulated in some countries – including Germany. We want to inform here, but not to encourage or instruct consumption.
What is Testolone (RAD-140)?
Testolone is one of the orally available, non-steroidal selective androgen receptor modulator (SARM).
Originally, the substance was developed in medicine for testosterone replacement therapy. To date, there have been several studies and clinical trial phases for its multiple uses. Since SARM tremendously increases gain in lean muscle mass, it has become very popular among bodybuilders, power athletes, and other athletes as a muscle building supplement.
As the name implies, SARMs act selectively, that is, only at specific points. They only bind to the androgen receptor. Therefore, unlike anabolic steroids or prohormones, they have no or hardly any side effects.
RAD-140 (Testolon) Effect
The binding affinity to the androgen receptor of RAD-140 is significantly higher than that of testosterone and even approaches DHT (dihydrotestosterone). This makes it an extremely anabolic SARM, but one that shows few androgenic side effects. Gains in muscle mass and strength are the main effects that can be achieved with Testolone. Taking RAD-140 can also have a positive effect on burning body fat, as it increased calorie consumption. At the same time, SARM may increase endurance and general performance. Of course, this also had a positive effect on well-being and body image.
Thus, the prostate is significantly less stressed. Under certain conditions, RAD-140 even showed regressive effects on prostate growth.
It is even thought that Testolone can be combined with testosterone to minimize its androgenic side effects. It was also observed to increase the effect of testosterone on muscle growth.
In one study, RAD140 was observed to possibly show neuroprotective effects – that is, to protect the brain and neurons.
Advantages of RAD-140 at a glance:
- Extremely anabolic SARM
- Increases lean muscle mass growth
- clear strength gains
- increased fat burning
- Positive well-being and body image
- Improved endurance and general performance
- No or hardly any side effects and androgenic effects
- even has a regressive effect on prostate growth
- may mitigate the androgenic side effects of testosterone
- may increase the anabolic effects of testosterone
- showed neuroprotective properties in early studies
Testolone side effects
Every body is different. And every body also reacts differently. And although SARMs like Testolon work selectively, undesirable side effects can also occur. Especially in contrast to steroids, prohormones and co. the side effects of SARMs are however significantly lesser to not to be expected.
At too high doses in combination with testosterone, however, it is possible, for example, that unbound testosterone remains in the body (after all, the number of androgen receptors is limited), which could be converted into estrogen by the aromatase enzyme. The result would be water retention and gynecomastia. Hair loss and mood swings may also be possible side effects.
A Post-Cycle Therapy is advisable to reboot the body’s testosterone production after the regimen and support the body. As always, you should follow the manufacturer’s dosage and intake recommendations exactly for the best results with little or no side effects.
Since the production of SARMs like Testolone is not allowed in some countries, there are always people and organizations that produce supplements illegally in laboratories or private households. If you want to buy Testolone (RAD-140), please pay close attention to the origin and manufacturer. In our online store for sports supplements and hardcore supplements you will find Testolone preparations exclusively in top quality and from reputable manufacturers.

Testolone (RAD-140) Experience
Many users of RAD-140 made the experience that the SARM is ideal as testosterone replacement. It showed a higher anabolic effect but hardly any androgenic side effects. The result was tremendous gains in lean muscle mass and muscle strength. Testolone thus proved to be truly powerful. Most stated that they gained around 2 to 3 kilograms of muscle mass within 6 weeks. Principally, some users stated that they noticed minor water retention.
Almost all users stated in their personal experiences with Testolon that they felt generally better and more comfortable in their bodies and that the aesthetic appearance improved significantly. Muscles appeared plumper, harder, and better defined.
After the Testolon regimen, some users also used Post-Cycle Therapy to maintain muscle gains and boost endogenous testosterone production. However, even without PCT, free testosterone levels returned to normal very quickly.
RAD-140 (Testolone)is also very popular with steroid users to bridge the time between cycles with as little mass loss as possible.
Intake and dosage of RAD-140 (Testolone)
The SARM RAD-140 has only a very short half-life, which is why it is advisable to divide the daily dose into three to four intakes. The average dosage recommendation is 10 to 30 milligrams per day. A Testolone cure you should carry out for about six to twelve weeks.
The most suitable have been found to be:
- Mass gain: up to 30 milligrams daily for 8 to 12 weeks
- Diet: 10 to 20 milligrams daily for 6 to 10 weeks
- Women: maximum 10 milligrams daily for 6 to 8 weeks
As always, pay close attention to the manufacturer’s instructions on each product and slowly increase the dose. So your body can slowly get used to the substance and the supplement show its full effect.

Testolone in Germany: Is RAD-140 legal?
Caution: We may and can not make any legally binding statements, but want to show you the legal situation known to us (as of April 2021) in the following. Please always inform yourself about the respective legal situation in your country before buying and consuming RAD-140 (Testolone).
As it is a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator, the possession and use of RAD-140 in Germany is subject to certain regulations. According to the Anti-Doping Act (AntiDopG §2 https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/antidopg/BJNR221010015.html) and the Doping Substances Quantity Ordinance (DmMV) https://www.gesetze-im-internet.de/dmmv_2020/DmMV.pdf, the following is allowed:
You, as an amateur athlete who does not want to gain a competitive advantage, are allowed to possess and consume Testolone (RAD-140) from legal sources in small amounts – a maximum of 90 mg – in Germany.
Most supplements have a dosage between 5 and 10 mg. So you can legally own between 9 and 18 daily servings, depending on the supplement.
RAD-140 in competitions
Warning: If you want to compete or are already competing, it is not allowed to possess or use RAD-140. Testolone has been classified as doping relevant. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has listed SARMs as “other anabolic substances” on its banned list since 1998. RAD-140 is therefore banned in athletically organized competitions.
