CHINA HAS BANNED SARMS & A HOST OF OTHER PRODUCTS!
It’s really sad news today. Maybe you heard already as many other companies have made announcements over the last few weeks amid the rumors. But its confirmed that China will be banning & criminalizing SARM’s for production, trade, import & export. New laws go into force on January 1st, 2020 although all factories have already ceased production.
As you already know all raws are produced in China. There are only a few huge factories producing SARM raws in China and those have already stopped production now. This means there will be virtually no production & a huge shortage of stock in the coming months.
This situation is not only for SARM’S. This new law relates to steroids, peptides, nootropics & a list of other products. (full list we have added below)
A result of trade agreement/wars between USA & CHINA. USA have been applying a lot of pressure to China to stop production of an array of chemicals & materials which are exported to the USA. This last round focused on metabolic & cognitive enhancing substances. But it looks like the USA have made an offer that China cannot refuse, and the result is that from Jan 1st, 2020 all these products will be banned and criminalized within China. It comes as a lesser surprise, WADA (World anti-doping agency) have been pushing for this as there is a huge surge in the number of high-profile athletes caught doping using SARMS’s
USA have recently introduced a new bill which will label SARM’s as a schedule 3 drug along with steroids. This is expected to pass later in the year of 2020.
Well we are not quite sure, we hoped it wasn’t that serious, but it does seem like the ban of SARMS will have a crippling effect on the industry. I predict most quality Brands will close due to the uncertain quality of raw materials after Jan 1st 2020.
We have sufficient stock to cover us for 4-8 months. Certain lines will sell out quicker and slowly become unavailable. I expect others have stocked up also with the short notice given. After that well were not quite sure. The Chinese government are expected to clarify everything in early January and declare what the new laws mean and how they will be enforced.
We also expect prices to increase as stock holding lowers across the industry (We will also be increasing prices by 20% from JAN 1st, 2020)
So, our advice now is if you haven’t already got stocked up and want to at the old prices then we suggest you do so now. Otherwise we can expect you will be able to still purchase after January 1st, 2020 at the new prices.
The situation is really sad, and there is no certainty regarding coming perspectives, but they don’t look well right now.
