NARROWS LABS REVIEW: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
The market for SARMs and other research chemicals is getting more impressive by the day. These compounds promise a wealth of good for use in treating disease and enhancing athletic and bodybuilding performance, so research continues to be geared up.
Despite this rosy outlook, something akin to a racket is being perpetrated almost every day in the market. Consumers are at the mercy of vendors who either sell them dodgy products or charge outrageous prices – or frequently both. It doesn’t help that this is a mostly unregulated market, so without a central authority overseeing it, vendors are pretty much free to sell anything they want using all kinds of guises.
This may be fine with scientific researchers whose technical knowledge can help them discern quality products, but what about ordinary folks like you who are mostly in the bodybuilding and sports area? This is where I come in, making your work incredibly easy by turning the spotlight on each of these vendors one step at a time.
In this article, I help answer the burning questions about whether Narrows Lab is your answer for quality and reliable source for performance enhancement products or research.
How I evaluated the vendor
In checking out Narrows Lab and determining whether they are an excellent company to buy from, I made use of these indicators:
- Product quality
- Shipping policy
- Product range
- Money-back guarantee
- Website security and privacy
- Customer support
But before I tackle the company, a little word about SARMs, and then I delve into a brief history of the company.
Enter SARMs, the wonder compound
Sarms is shorthand for Selective Androgenic Receptor Modulators. It’s a mouthful, I know, but those words ushered in a new age in the field of medical research as well as the bodybuilding and athletic front. These compounds, the painstaking result of relentless research in the lab, gave people another option besides anabolic steroids and prohormones, to achieve performance and physical enhancement.
Steroids were beautiful but ugly at the same time. In the end, they got so ugly, which resulted in them getting kicked out. Governments and sporting authorities flew into action and banned them. The list of side effects that steroids brought made for unpleasant reading
- Men getting boobs
- Women getting beards and hoarse masculine voices (can be depressingly irreversible)
- The worst of all is liver toxicity which means the end of your life
Sarms are a lot of different. Because they are Selective as the name suggests, they act only on some parts of your body, specifically your bone and muscle. There they trigger stronger sturdier bones and bigger muscle – just what you want, with far fewer side effects compared with steroids or prohormones.
History of Narrows Lab
Interestingly the foundation of Narrows Lab was driven by the anguish and outrage of the founder at the steep prices companies were charging customers for research chemicals. While anticipating that the substances will be eventually be approved for human consumption and bring about a revolution in health and performance enhancement, he thought of offering the products at an affordable price coupled with excellent customer service.
Narrows Lab says that no batch is shipped before it has been tested. Perhaps most remarkably they say they incur their own expense at ensuring all tests are done. It’s anyone's guess, but they say that the cost for this isn’t cheap, but they are willing to absorb it, just to give you the customer a break! Moreover, they provide third-party documents issued by independent labs for customers to see. These tests are renewed every 30 days, and new certificates of analysis are made available regularly.
All this sounds pretty impressive and should put the customer at ease but let’s see what else this company has to offer?
Narrows Lab goes to great lengths to stock a broad selection of SARMs. The SARMs come in both capsule and powder form to suit your needs or preferences. The bestseller liquid SARM is Testolone (RAD 140) and which boasts a concentration level of 15 mg/30 mL. Cardarine (GW 501516) is the best selling SARM capsule which comes, at 10 MG each.
The company goes beyond providing SARMs to a stock of other products in its inventory such as cannabinoid and hormone products, items that you may want to consider as a bodybuilder to supplement your Sarm needs.

The company has a dedicated customer service that is a delight to work with. They declare that its customer support comes second to none, and I am inclined to believe it.
They are dedicated 24/7 to you, ready to attend to your issues and inquiries, whatever they are. If something is pricking you, you can always reach out to them through their toll-free number (800) 321-3579. However, this service is available during regular business hours only.
If you want to contact them at any other time, you can email them at [email protected] with any questions. The company also has a social media presence through such platforms as Facebook and YouTube. This provides additional channels for you to connect with them
This vendor has come up with a thoughtful site that incorporates all the features of a navigable and user-friendly website. Both desktop and mobile versions of their site are professionally set up. The homepage provides an appealing interface with helpful links to other pages that provide you with information on products, shipping policies, and other relevant resources.
If you are ordering from the US, you qualify for free shipping. However, if you are ordering outside the US, you get charged $20 for every order regardless of where you are ordering from. The company deems this to be a low fee rate.
The company offers the following waiting or delivery times which depends on your location
- US orders – 3 to 5 business days
- Intrrnstionsk orders – 7 to 21 business days
You also have USPS options that ship through the following addresses
- PO Box – arrival times between 7 to 10 business days
- Rural Route – arrival times between 7 to 10 business days
- APO/FPO/DPO – arrival times between 3 to 5 weeks
Your shipments from the company will be executed any day from Monday to Saturday but excluding holidays. Even though the company promises same-day delivery, you will have to make your order before 3 pm PST on weekdays to achieve this. For Saturdays, you will have to order before 1 pm PST. If your orders come after those times, it will have to wait for the next business day to be processed and delivered.
Even though the company makes a guarantee that it will deliver in 4 days (for US orders), this does not cover delays that may occur because of USPS. Moreover, it will only pay for 2 or 3 days with shipment taking place within 24 hours. While taking all these estimated delivery times into account, remember that time is also needed to process your payment before shipment can begin. The company says you should allow for one business day for your order to be processed.
Along with quality, this is another area where the company is laser-focused on delivering, being one of the driving motives of the founder. The company’s original mission was to spare the customers the atrociously jacked-up prices that vendors charge in this space. How far do they deliver? Most of the customer reviews agree that their prices are good and affordable.
You can get coupons offered by the company ranging from 15 percent to 30 percent.
The company accepts various payment methods such as the following
- Debit and prepaid cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, Diner’s Club International)

Narrows Lab surprises in being one of a small dying breed of companies in this market that offer you a money-back guarantee.
- Great customer support
- Affordable prices
- Accepts returns
- Some products missing in the company’s product offerings
Narrows Labs makes a valiant case for itself that your days of the exhausting search for good grade Sarm are over. They think their supply is the perfect source saving you the need of going all over town on a goose chase hunt that often ends up with disappointment. But does Narrows Lab come even close to delivering on their promise of satisfying your need for quality SARMs coupled with great service?
In many respects, yes, but the company fails in some of the standards its sets of fully satisfying its customers. For example, its SARMs product is not comprehensive enough to provide for all customers. If you want Ostarine, you won’t find it stocked here. If you want more comprehensive coverage, you can check Proven Peptides.
