This popular SARMs company has been making the rounds across various message boards and blogs, but is Swiss Chems Legit?
Swiss Chems has distanced itself from other SARMs providers on account of its niche powdered, capsule form, and novel SARMs, being offered in a variety of palatable forms to distract from the nasty “rubbing alcohol” chemical taste in liquid form SARMs.
However, marketing gimmick aside, some have begun to ask: is Swiss Chems legit?
Recent questions surrounding SARMs provenance and increasingly scrutinized legal status might have some potential customers second guessing Swiss Chems‘s quality.
Is Swiss Chems Legit?
In my personal experience, Swiss Chems is legit.
So far, I have ordered LGD-4033, GW-501516, MK-677, Tamoxifen from Swiss Chems — all of which have proven effective in serving their purposes.
My Reviews: Is Swiss Chems Legit?
My first cycle with Swiss Chems‘s products were a mixture of LGD-4033 (Ligandrol) and GW-501516 (Cardarine).
In my initial review, I wrote:
I am currently in the 6th week of my cycle and I have put on size everywhere — most notably in my arms and deltoids.
My quads have grown significantly; but my pecs have lagged a little bit, indicating a potential genetic weakness.
Training endurance has been a major player in evolving my training.
I have now incorporated a lot of high volume training schemes such as 10x10s to hit my legs, for example — as I can’t go heavy due to my back.
My arms are stretching the sleeves to most of my t-shirts more than ever.
Overall, if I were to guess, I have gained a good 5lb of muscle so far with a fair amount of bloat. Having said that, I have lost a considerable amount of fat — which is why the scales have barely budged.
It is a shame I can’t squat or deadlift heavy anymore, otherwise I would be dying to test them.
But, having said that, I am chest-supported rowing the full stack for working sets — something I couldn’t do in my final natty days.
The most noticeable leap in strength has been in my shoulders.
My shoulder strength was always a weak point for me as I have long arms.
On my final natty workout, I Military Pressed 225lb for a grinding one-rep max; 6 weeks into my cycle I Military Pressed 225lb for 9.5 reps (yes, I’m still salty AF about missing that 10th rep!).
My bench press 3-rep max has also jumped by 20-25lb — even though I’ve only bench pressed a couple of times on this cycle as I’m focusing on hypertrophy over raw strength.
The most noticeable strength gain estimates after 5-6 weeks:
- 50-60lb jump in Military Press 1RM
- 20-25lb jump in Bench Press 3RM
- 25% increase in chest-supported row
- Noticeably faster sprint speed
As a 30-year-old natty lifter, my recovery time was in the toilet; one pressing session would leave my anterior deltoids smoked for over a week!
My pumps would suck unless I ate enough raw garlic to repel all vampires in a 5-mile radius or drink enough beetroot juice to turn my insides bright purple.
In fact, the past 9 months sucked training-wise. I lost my love for lifting as it felt like I was only losing hard-earned strength and mass.
On LGD-4033, my pumps are insane and my workouts have been metaphorically injected with a shot of adrenaline.
Even without pre-workout, my training intensity and endurance are both sky high to the point where I have to force myself to leave the gym.
With all good things, there is a catch — and for SARMs it’s no different.
Before diving into this cycle, I had researched the compounds I was going to take, but the side-effects you’ll experience vary from person to person.
The most commonly reported side-effects for LGD-4033 are:
- Testosterone suppression
- Raised Liver Enzymes
- Elevated Blood Pressure
- Dry Mouth
- Proneness to Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
I am prone to stomach problems as I damaged my stomach lining when I was 10. I have to be cautious with certain foods and acidic drinks such as soda and alcohol, plus I have to be cautious with anti-inflammatories/aspirin.
From around week 2, I was having abdominal pains consistent with my stomach condition as I attempted to intermittent fast to keep my caloric intake down. To remedy these pains, I took a daily dose of Omeprazole and ate a light snack whenever these pains flared.
I also decided to buy some NAC and Milk Thistle to alleviate some pains on the right side of my abdomen as I believed the compounds may have also been affecting my liver.
From around week 5, my blood pressure shot up to the point where I would experience as I raised my daily dose of LGD-4033 to 10mg. To counteract this, I would lower my dose to 7-8mg a day, do daily cardio, plus supplement garlic extract and niacin.
I did not experience other side-effects; test suppression appears to be minimal with no noticeable hypogonadism (shrinking testicles) and my mood, energy levels, and libido are about the same overall.
We have an article on how to know whether you have low testosterone levels.
Side note: I haven’t been able to get blood work done to ensure everything is order, but this will be something I shall document in future cycles.
Is Swiss Chems Legit for a PCT?
Swiss Chems holds various substances for a post-cycle therapy. Sarms are suppressive to one degree or another and it is advisable that you run a PCT based on bloodwork that you should request after completing a cycle.
In fact, we have previously written an article on whether you should run a PCT after completing a SARMs cycle that you should check out before considering to make a purchase.
Swiss Chems recommends what PCT protocol you should follow before purchasing their compounds.
Is Swiss Chems Legit? How Do I Keep My Gains
Ibutamoren has become a popular intercycle option for SARMs users in an effort to preserve the gains they’ve made on cycle. It has also become a TRT replacement in itself for some TRT clinics as it boasts rejuvenating effects that can be enjoyed throughout a lengthy cycle.
If you can stomach (no pun intended) the spikes in hunger pangs due to ghrelin receptor activation, Ibutamoren can serve as a great fat loss supplement with improved fat mobilization.
On MK-677 my sleep quality has been first class — I sleep like a baby and often experience vivid and nostalgic dreams. My skin quality improved; while my hair and nails also seemingly grew quicker than usual.
I did not experience any Carpal Tunnel or tingling in my extremities.
And I have managed to keep most of the gains I made on cycle.
Make sure to order at least two vials of MK-677 if you intend to run a full cycle which can last to up to 24 weeks.
Is Swiss Chems Legit? Upcoming Cycle
I will kickstart my cycle with some leftover LGD-4033 + GW-501516 I have from the previous cycle for a couple of weeks. Then I will run Slyced — an all-in-one cutting stack — for 6 week.
A combination of Ostarine, Cardarine, and Stenabolic, is an interesting combination of compounds commonly associated with cutting.
This will be with the intention to cut while gaining a few pounds of lean mass in the process.
In the future, we will be uploading an article on the best SARMs cutting and bulking stacks on the market.
Conclusions — Is Swiss Chems Legit?
To the question “Is Swiss Chems Legit?” I would have to resoundly answer yes.
From my first cycle, where I saw massive gains after hitting my genetic ceiling naturally, to the effortless PCT (which can vary from person to person), to the noticeable positive benefits from MK-677, I recommend Swiss Chems as a provider.
