GW0742 is a PPAR agonist sold as a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator. The chemical structure of GW0742 is very similar to that of Cardarine GW501516 but is reported to be more powerful than Cardarine.
Benefits of GW0742
1. Improves insulin resistance
2. Fat Loss
Being a PPAR agonist, GW0742 leads to fat loss by boosting metabolism and stimulating the body to turn to fat for fuel. It also increases the oxidative capacity of the muscles that helps more calories to burn without attacking lean muscle mass gains.
3. Increased Endurance and Energy Levels
GW0742 increases energy levels and endurance by turning fat into energy. It suppresses glucose metabolism and stimulates the body to tap into its fat reserves for energy. The increased oxidative capacity in muscles also improves stamina and endurance.
4. Reduces Inflammation
GW0742 has some anti-inflammatory properties that can benefit the gut. Although several studies have reported this, scientists are still asking for more clinical trials to understand the potential benefits and uses of GW0742 in treating gut inflammation.
5. Reduces Total Cholesterol
GW0742 can reduce total cholesterol by reversing the transportation of cholesterol. The study reports that GW0742 decreases the reabsorption of cholesterol in the intestines. This means most of the cholesterol remains in the digestive tract, where it ends up getting excreted from the body. The researchers reported that GW0742 works in a similar manner as Ezetimibe, a drug used for treating high blood cholesterol.
6. Supports a Healthy Lipid Profile
GW0742 increases the metabolism of lipids in the heart.
