Amino Asylum has received some raving reviews on places like Reddit, Facebook and other bodybuilding communities.
They are a relatively new vendor, and it’s rare to see someone build such a loyal fanbase within just a few months.
In this Amino Asylum review, I will be investigating whether the reviews have any merit and I’ll also try to talk a bit about the company and their practices.
Looking back, this is one of the weirdest reviews that I’ve ever written, as information on the company is sparse to say the least.
It almost felt like writing about an underground community, like ‘Fight Club’.
Their website looks very outdated, lacking in professionalism.
They only have one expandable tab on their front page, that being the ‘Shop’ section.
Their product selection is separated into six different categories, and it’s all accessible from their homepage.
Amino Asylum seems to forgo any fancy introductions, instead of going straight for the kill; their entire website is set up to promote their products.
Almost no other information is presented about the company, and I had to go to a third-party website to gather that Amino Asylum is based in Kentucky.
The scanned links all work as intended, and I had no problems navigating the website.
This is their bread and butter, they have quite a formidable product selection and besides SARMs, you’ll find SERMs, peptides, amino acids, aromatase inhibitors, prohormones and much more.
They have all the SARMs and compounds related to SARMs in stock, even Ligandrol (branded as LGD), which is a welcoming surprise.
They only sell SARMs and SERMs as liquids and as far as I know, you’ll have to buy a dropper separately in order to measure your product.
Thankfully, they don’t have any harmful SARM stacks in store for us, and each SARM is sold separately.
However, they do have some blends of amino acids and prohormones which I would personally avoid due to safety reasons.
Their pricing structure is one of the best in the industry, they can even compete with big names such as science.bio.
For example, 30mls of Ostarine (20mgs/ml) will only cost you 30$, which is a great deal.
This all sounds well and good, but once we reach the next section, you’ll see why their prices are so low.
I’ve searched the entire website for HPLC tests or at least some CoAs from their manufacturer, but they simply don’t exist.
Amino Asylum doesn’t have any quality control.
It doesn’t necessarily mean that they don’t test their research chemicals, but the fact that they might be withholding results should ring some alarm bells.
I’m not entirely sure what to think about this; I want to give them the benefit of the doubt, but every reputable SARMs company should prioritize quality control as one of their core values.
I didn’t test any of their products for obvious reasons and I implore you to use common sense before ordering from them.
Shipping And Returns
Once again, no information is presented about their shipping or refund policies.
You should expect the least and be prepared for the worst.
Some people on bodybuilding forums have mentioned that it may take up to a week for shipments to arrive in the US.
This is probably due to the virus situation which is currently creating delays in shipping.
Other than that, there is no other information pertaining to this subject.
Customer Reviews Online
Most of the time, it can be surprisingly difficult to find a positive review about a new vendor on places like Reddit.
This time, the situation is reversed; I had to dig around quite a lot to find a negative review about this company.
Most people talk about the high quality of their products, some were a bit concerned about the lack of CoAs, but the reviews are generally positive.
At first, I was convinced these were shill accounts promoting the company, but after conducting some in-depth research, I’ve come to the conclusion that they are legitimate.
There are also rumors circulating saying that many IFBB pros use exactly this vendor for their research.
This is unconfirmed, but it should tell you a bit about the scope of this company.
The only negative review was from Facebook, where a person claimed the vendor responded coldly to their request for CoAs.
You can reach Amino Asylum on Instagram, Snapchat, through email, or on Facebook – although the latter isn’t mentioned on their website.
According to previous customers, they respond in one or two days and are usually eager to please, except when challenged about their lack of quality control.
I didn’t contact the company personally so I’m not entirely sure how well they respond to inquiries.
However, the fact that CoAs are apparently a taboo topic concerns me.
One of the strangest companies I’ve ever reviewed, that’s for sure.
Their product selection is impressive and they have all the SARMs bar none.
The only thing bothering me is the lack of testing on their research chemicals.
I understand that tests take a lot of time and money, but it’s not 2010 anymore; lab tests have become industry standard by now.
To conclude this Amino Asylum review, I think this company has a lot of potential, customers like them and enjoy their products.
However, without proper tests and more general information on the company, this vendor will remain largely invisible to broader audiences.
I can’t vouch for them for the time being, so if you’re looking to conduct research, check out my recommended sources.
