SARMs are not legal ingredients for dietary supplements. However, there have been instances of products containing SARMs being sold illegally as dietary supplements. These products could pose significant health risks to athletes. Since SARMs are prohibited at-all-times on the WADA Prohibited List, consumption of these dietary supplements could also lead to an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV) in sport. Athletes should be aware that SARMs ingredients could be listed on dietary supplement product labels under various names, and should be cautious when consuming such products. 
Neural injections of Bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) were applied to males of both groups to test for neurogenesis . Analysis showed that testosterone and dihydrotestosterone regulated adult hippocampal neurogenesis (AHN). Adult hippocampal neurogenesis was regulated through the androgen receptor in the wild-type male rats, but not in the TMF male rats. To further test the role of activated androgen receptors on AHN, flutamide , an antiandrogen drug that competes with testosterone and dihydrotestosterone for androgen receptors , and dihydrotestosterone were administered to normal male rats. Dihydrotestosterone increased the number of BrdU cells, while flutamide inhibited these cells.
