SR9011 is a research drug developed by Dr. Thomas Burris at Scripps Research Institute in 2012. At the time, he was working to find a drug that could change someone’s circadian clock. Dr. Burris’ team found that the compound had metabolic effects, as obese mice using the compound lost weight.
SR9011 is a promising compound that is a better version of SR9009. While SR9009 offers many of the same benefits, SR9011 is becoming preferable due to its increased efficacy.
SR9011 is classified under the drug group REV-ERB agonists.
SR9011 enhances the way the Rev-ErbA protein works.
REV-ERB is a family of proteins that are found in skeletal muscle, liver, brain, and adipose tissue. REV-ERB proteins (REV-ERBα and REV-ERBβ) alter the BMAL1 gene, which is considered one of the main genes regulating circadian rhythm. These nuclear hormone receptors play an important role in lipid and glucose metabolism, and inflammatory responses.
SR 9011 has an effect on sleeping patterns and behavior (known as circadian pattern or rhythm). When tested in mice, it was found to impact the circadian pattern, which is expressed by clock genes located in the hypothalamus. This effect was also extended to metabolic genes found in the liver, skeletal muscle, and fat tissue, changing their circadian expression and causing them to use up more energy.
We and many other earth creatures have bodies that are driven by a circadian cycle that tracks the 24-hour cycle produced by the sun. It’s why we wake up and predictably go to sleep. This process is mediated by special genes in our bodies which successively turn on and off at given intervals to produce the circadian rhythm.
Two genes called CLOCK and BMAL1, when turned on, turn on other genes called PER and CRY. The reverse also takes place, leading to PER and CRY turning off. The process runs perpetually in this on-off manner.
SR 0011 is, described, as a REV-ERB agonist. That is because it involves two proteins called ERB and REV. This pair of proteins are what controls the circadian clock rhythm by turning off BMAL1.
However, in a further maze of complexity, these proteins are triggered by an iron compound called heme group, which is also found in your red blood cells.
REV-ERB proteins can be found in your liver, fat tissues, and muscles. When you take SR 9011, it has the effect of dramatically increasing REV-ERB action with the following results :
Liver – the REV-ERBs carried in this organ, which is the largest of the body, has the most tremendous effect on the body’s circadian rhythm. It deactivates glucose-producing genes and triggers on genes that are creating new fat cells.
Muscles – REV-ERB leads to the generation of new mitochondria, energy-producing parts of the cell. It also preserves old mitochondria, preventing them from being destroyed. These have the effect of accelerating fat burn by increasing the activity of mitochondria.
Fat cells – REV-ERB in these cells deactivates genes that create fat storage. This holds back the production of triglycerides.
Kill Cancer Cells :
Another study by the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has found that SR9011 turns on receptors to kill breast, colon, leukemia, melanoma, and brain cancer cells.
The activation of REV-ERB by SR9011 results in increased energy use and weight loss in mice. Using the compound caused both weight loss and fat mass loss, but also increased oxygen consumption. There was no change in food intake or respiration when taking SR9011.
SR9011 works by regulating certain protein functions, including lipids, glucose levels, and removes dead cells. Its main goal is to control the circadian rhythm by producing and stabilizing chemical levels.
Our bodies function by adhering to a 24-hour cycle called a circadian rhythm. This pattern is preserved using a loop mechanism that turns your genes off and on. For instance, when BMAL1 and CLOCK genes are switched on, this ends on PER and CRY. Afterward, BMAL1 and CLOCK are switched off, and also the method resets.
Mostly, Rev-ErbA proteins function to stabilize this inner clock by turning off BMAL1. In turn, these proteins are activated by means of a group of compounds belonging to the exact same group with Red blood cells.
When tested on animals, SR9011 had the following effects :
Led to increased oxygen consumption
Contributed to some reduction in the production of fat cells from the liver
Reduced the production of bile acids and cholesterol from the liver
Caused an increase in the number of mitochondria
Increased the uptake of fatty acids and glucose in the muscles
Reduced fat storage in the adrenal gland
Decreased amount of stored fat in adipose tissues
Increased lean muscle development as new tissues are generated faster, replacing dead cells with new ones faster
Aids in recovery time by reducing tissue inflammation
Enhanced endurance by allowing for increased capacities in heart rate
Increased the resting metabolism, burning more energy per unit, and stopping the body from uptaking glucose
Increased Fat Burn :
SR9011 approaches fat loss from two angles. It increases the body’s energy expenditure. Then, it switches off the genes that assist with sugar uptake without affecting insulin sensitivity in any way at all. As a result, the entire body is forced to turn into the stored fat deposits because of fuel.
Second, it boosts the rate at which your system generates new mitochondria, the cell’s energy powerhouses. Consequently, this raises your metabolism significantly, even during rest. When diet-induced mice were awarded SR9011 for 30 days, they dropped 60% more weight than mice on the control. In any case, morbidly obese mice in another study stopped gaining weight after 12 days without any effect on their sugar levels.
Enhanced Endurance :
SR9011 enriches your endurance, allowing you to go harder for more without crashing. As you might be aware, cardio is the best training for endurance. The idea behind cardio is to increase your heart rate and maximize your capacity. Consequently, if you should achieve your maximum heart rate within half an hour of high interval intensity training (HIIT), this drug will allow you to do exactly the same HITT at only 75% of your heartbeat. This will let you go for ten minutes before getting to your maximum limitation; it will make a significant difference in your output.
Lab studies on mice using SR9011 showed a dramatic increase in endurance and body fat reduction. The mice also had an increased 50% running capacity for both time and distance. It also has no effect on the viability of normal tissues or cells when used. The increased muscle mass of the mice had a direct correlation to SR9011 usage.
Development of Lean Muscle :
SR 9011 can also dramatically increase your lean muscle mass. This happens as a result of the shedding of the old mitochondria and the creation of new mitochondria which increases the rate of new muscle generation.
SR9011 has been used effectively to reduce muscle wasting in people with Sarcopenia. This means it can help you protect your lean muscle mass and strength increases.
Reduced Cholesterol Levels :
Decreases cholesterol, triglyceride, and LDL (bad cholesterol) levels while maintaining HDL (good cholesterol) levels. Animal studies show that these benefits are achievable after 7 to 10 days of taking SR9011. Promotes good cardiac health because of its impact on cholesterol levels
Improved Circadian Rhythm :
By varying your circadian rhythm, Hyper Lean 2.0 will keep you active and alert throughout the day. Can help fight off feelings of fatigue during intense sessions. Furthermore, the sleep you get is of outstanding quality because it is blissful, restful, and difficult to interrupt.
Faster Recovery :
It reduces inflammation and tissue damage, that allows the body to recover quicker. If you can recall, we mentioned earlier that it faces out old, dead mitochondrial cells and replaces them with new ones. This process helps to boost your healing speed appreciably.
Alleviating Anxiety :
Animal studies show that anxiety behavior is noticeably reduced if they are given a REV-ERB substance for 3 to 10 days, twice per day.
No lab studies have been done on the proper dosage of SR9011 for humans. Anecdotally people are getting good results with 20mg per day, which would make it on par with the dosing recommended for SR9009.
SR9011 has a half-life of only 4 hours.
50mg is the most you should ever take on a single day; past that, you may experience side effects. Most users recommend starting with a little dose of 5 mg daily before progressing to 30mg (split into three doses). This will allow you to develop tolerance and minimize any sleep-related issues.
SR9011 has poor levels of oral bioavailability due to the inherent nature of the compound.
Side Effects of SR9011 :
There have been no clinically identified long term side effects using SR9011 simply because not enough testing has been done. Some anecdotal evidence has pointed to a possible side effect of insomnia as it causes increased hyperactivity.
Users of SR9011 interviewed online did not report any serious side effects. Of a of total 24 people who reported using SR9011, 4 out of 24 people reported sleep side effects.
Anecdotal evidence indicates that 15 to 20 percent of the users mentioned insomnia as a possible side effect. However, this was controlled when the dose was reduced or after discontinuing use.
SR9011 Banned in Sports :
SR9011 is a banned substance among sports leagues and organizations. It is listed as a prohibited substance that can lead to disqualification and suspension in almost every sport, including the Olympics.
All organizations below have it listed as a banned substance on their website:
WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency)
USADA (the United States Anti-Doping Agency)
ASADA (Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority)
It is clear that SR9011 is not tolerated among sports and any competing athletes caught using it face suspensions and fines.
This is a VERY rare compound and it is not commonly sourced into the USA.
