Anavar is a mild anabolic androgenic steroid which women and children can use. It was synthetically produced and introduced by Searle Laboratories in 1964. The main purpose of this steroid is not to bulk up athletes and bodybuilders but rather helps patients with diseases such as HIV, painful osteoporosis and growth disorder caused by hormone deficiency.
This compound prevents glucocorticoids which promotes the gluconeogenesis process. This process breaks down proteins instead of glucose which causes the wasting or degeneration of the muscles. Anavar is beneficial to patients suffering from diseases that cause wasting since this drug allows the muscle tissues to have more time to regenerate.
This anabolic androgenic steroid exhibits high androgenic property which means that it has the ability to promote protein synthesis in the body. This property inhibits the conversion and effects of estrogen, so there will be no water and fat deposition during the use of this drug. If there is zero water or fats within the muscle tissues, the muscle tend to stick closer to one another and to the skin, resulting to a leaner, harder and tighter muscle. Having no water and fats deposited in the body, high blood pressure, increased cholesterol level and fat deposition in blood vessels are not likely to develop. One more benefit of Anavar to bodybuilders and athletes, is its ability to control the estrogen-related effects such as the development of gynecomastia or the abnormal growth of the breasts tissues in males. Problems in the formation of sperms and low level of testosterone production are also avoided, although decreased level of libido may occur.
Since Anavar is an androgen, there is the possibility to experience some side effects such as the irregularities in menstruation, deepening of the voice, increased growth of body and facial hair, acne formation and increased aggressiveness. The virilization effects are common to women taking a daily dose of more than 15mg of Anavar.
Anavar is taken after meals since it can cause stomach upset, loose bowel movement and vomiting. This compound is tolerated by the liver although high dosage and prolonged use may lead to liver cyst and tumor. This is why Anavar is administered daily at a dose of 2.5 to 20mg, which is divided into two to four doses in two to four weeks. In bodybuilding, a dose of 0.125mg in every pound of body weight is recommended. Advanced users, however, can increase the dosage to 0.2mg per pound of body weight and still experience no side effects.
This compound is considered as a doping drug by the sporting bodies such as Major League Baseball and Olympics, while it is generally categorized as a regulated drug by the Controlled Substance Act, so possession and use of this drug without a physician’s prescription is illegal.
Anavar is available in local drugstores, gyms and online shops. Since, buying from the first two options is quite a hassle, most users avail this steroid from online shops. Ordering and paying from online shops are fast, easy and reliable.
