AICAR (chemical name: 5-Aminoimidazole-4-carboxamide ribonucleotide) is a peptide, which is an intermediate within the generation of inosine monophosphate and directly related to metabolic regulation. The most important mechanism that AICAR is known for is its ability to block enzymes both in intracellular and extracellular levels, which, in turn, allows for an accelerated stimulation of glucose uptake and increase protein kinases in skeletal muscle tissue. These two functions allow for more energy conversion, which helps burn fat and also sustain output in activity. This is what scientists and athletes/bodybuilders are interested in, but there are some amazing side effects.

Interestingly, AICAR has been shown to protect against ischemic injury. This type of injury is directly related to the restriction of blood to tissues, which can cause insufficient amounts of oxygen and glucose needed to keep the tissue alive. This can lead to thrombosis, embolisms, and vasoconstriction. AICAR can be used as a stabilizing peptide for ischemic episodes, and it can allow for proper blood flow to the myocardium (heart). This function is very interesting, as AICAR could be fundamentally used to treat the heart muscle in the aftermath of a heart attack. This might reduce the possibility for ischemic injuries. Abnormal growths of heart tissues and heart valve function have also been altered in animal studies that used the peptide AICAR, which is a downside.

Dosages and cycles with Aicar

Here is where AICAR becomes a pipe dream for anyone who is not a top level endurance athlete or bodybuilder. The dosages recommended to achieve the benefits from this SARMs are insanely high. AICAR must be dosed at around 5~10mg of body weight. Some say that this can be circumvented by stacking it with Cardarine (GW), Yes, the SARMs AICAR has amazing properties, some which even show the slowing of growth in cancer cells, but for the average athlete this has no basis in a day to day regiment. On the other hand, Cardarine (GW) has been shown to provide users with more than enough results as an Activated Receptor d agonists (PPARd) and it’s cost-effective for everyone.
