LEGAL NOTICE: Anavar is legal in some countries, but requires a prescription to be bought in other countries.
Anavar is one of the most popular oral anabolic steroids on the market today, and among the top five anabolic steroids used in the history of steroid use. Its popularity arises from the fact that it’s well balanced and has few side effects and is effective for athletes, men, and women. For the past 30 years, Anavar has been used widely among bodybuilders, even for first-timers, and is known as the “perfect anabolic steroid”. The chemical name for Anavar is Oxandrolone and when used as part of a steroid cycle, with cutting and lean mass being the goal, or to increase performance, it can be effective, even with varied dosages.
What is Anavar?
Information and data on Oxandrolone was originally published in 1962. The pharmaceutical company, G.D. Searle and Co. Laboratories (Pfizer, Inc.) developed it for medical use, releasing and marketing it under several different brand names, which were Anavar, Lipidex, Lonivar, and Protivar.
It was then and now prescribed for treating:
• Chronic infections
• Increasing collagen synthesis
• Promotion of tissues
• Trauma recovery
Anavar oral steroids can be purchased in 2mg, 5mg, and 10mg tablets, although there may be some pills or capsules with even larger doses.
Uses of Anavar Steroids
Oxandrolone would not be considered an anabolic steroid for building mass, but more of a compound for promoting lean tissue; similar to the way it’s used for medical purposes. If you’re seeking to gain 30 pounds of total muscle mass in a month or to just gain 20 pounds of sheer weight Anavar isn’t for you. But if you’d like to perhaps add 5 to 10 pounds of good sound muscle in say, 10 weeks, this may be your answer.
Anavar steroids are mostly used as one element in a cutting cycle, when you are cutting calories to below maintenance levels and want your body to switch over to burning fat for fuel so you can reduce fat levels and gain definition. Anavar is extremely helpful when you’re restricting calories but want to maintain muscle mass as it assists in slowing down protein breakdown while increasing protein synthesis.
Oxandrolone is also a very good weapon to have in your arsenal if you’re an athlete wanting to increase your speed, power and strength. If you can get the dosage right, Anavar will help you become dramatically stronger which is very useful if you’re into power sports like lifting or strong man. Because it can add to an athlete’s performance without adding a lot of visible muscle mass it has become very popular among athletes, including those in contact sports and events where speed is essential.
Fewer Side Effects than Other Steroids
Because Anavar is derived from dihydrotestosterone (DHT) it’s effective at combating the negative side effects of estrogen. Steroids derived from DHT also increase sexual desire, but it is not recommended that you use Anavar alone. Anavar, also called “Var” is also useful in reducing SHBG levels which has the effect of making more Testosterone available for positive uses.
Information on Anavar Cycles
Beginners can safely use Anavar steroids and since it’s part of the DHT family this would indicate that there would be little, if no impact, on the steroid user’s sex drive. Anavar is generally used as one part of an anabolic steroid cycle, but not normally the primary anabolic of the steroid cycle as this wouldn’t be recommended as the best use for it. Make no mistake, Anavar can be taken alone and sometimes is by both women and men, even by beginning users as well as advanced because it really should be taken along with a small dose of Testosterone.
There are a number of different Testosterone compounds on the market that can be used and come in bottles of 250mg – 500mg:
• Testosterone Enanthate
• Testosterone Cypionate
• Testosterone Propioate
• Testosterone Sustanon
These can be used for 6 to 12 weeks and the dosage should be in the range of 30mg – 50mg a day. This should not be taken for any longer than 5 or 6 weeks at a time and the dosage should be taken half in the morning and a half at nighttime. For female users, Anavar should be cycled at between 5mg – 15mg a day. There may be some that need more, which would depend on their genetic response to it, their age, any previous experience with it, level of physical development, and any noticeable side effects. If symptoms of virilization appear then Oxandrolone use should immediately cease. However, Anavar is generally very safe for women, as is Primobolan.
SAFETY WARNING: Anavar can cause serious side effects if used improperly. It is important to adhere to dosage instructions closely to prevent adverse reactions.
How to Use Anavar Safely
There are some side effects that can be caused by Anavar, and there are ones that can prove problematic and stubborn. Anavar steroids can inhibit the body’s own testosterone levels, depending on the dosage. It lowers endogenous testosterone in the body even though Anavar is known to be among the mildest of anabolic steroids. In any case, it does have an impact on the Hypothalamic Pituitary Testicular Axis (HPTA). Even so, children with very sensitive HPTA can take it. Anavar will lower, in both males and females, their endogenous testosterone levels somewhat.
If you’re planning on taking Oxandrolone by itself, you must use it for only 5 to 7 weeks at a time. Plus you might want to take supplements to prevent a loss of libido. There are three we can recommend, which are Fadogia Agrestis, Long Jack, and Tribulus. Anavar has a change in its molecular structure at the 17th carbon position and is a 17-alpha-alkylated anabolic steroid, putting it in the same classification as Anadrol, Dianabol, and Winstrol regarding oral toxicity. All can get through the first phase of liver metabolism, which means it enters the bloodstream, becoming active which sets off its anabolic properties.
Precautions and Side Effects
Because of this, it should be only used for 5 to 7 weeks at a time and with regular blood testing to confirm that the liver isn’t being adversely affected and remains healthy. Anavar also has an effect on the cholesterol, or lipid levels, of the user. This side effect is sometimes difficult to deal with, but a diet that includes high levels of omega-3s can help. These foods would be eggs, grass-fed beef, nuts, oily fish, and of course the added supplement Q-10.
Women don’t usually have side effects when they’re using Anavar, but if they increase their dosages they could have problems. If symptoms of developing masculine features occur, which is virilization, then immediately stop using Anavar. Once you stop, these symptoms should subside, but if you continue using this steroid these masculine features could become permanent. Symptoms of virilization include: acne, deepening of the voice, enlargement of sexual organs, hair growth or hair loss, and an increase in aggression from using Anavar pills.
