GW-501516, also known as cardarine, is a performance-enhancing drug originally designed to help patients with metabolic problems. It works by boosting energy levels at the cellular level, promoting more fat burning, stimulating muscle growth and lowering cholesterol levels. The chemical works by enhancing the PPAR-delta pathway, which is responsible for the absorption of fatty acids into cell nuclei, where they’re used for energy and essential processes. By improving this absorption, GW-501516 has been studied medically for its effects on heart, blood vessel and blood sugar health .
According to a 2018 study published in “Frontiers in Pharmacology,” CW-501516 has an antitumorigenic effect by promoting cancer cell death .
In a 2015 study published in “Endocrine,” GW-501516 reduces inflammation, improves glucose uptake and increases the metabolism of fat . Due to its effectiveness in lowering cholesterol levels, medical researchers have suggested that GW-501516 be used in tandem with statin drugs to lower cholesterol levels in patients .
