Anavar – Oxandralone
Anavar also known as Oxandralone is the go to Steroid for increasing metabolism and building lean, hard muscle. Anavar is special in that it does not aromatise at lower doses. This is important for men as it does not shut down their natural testosterone production if used properly. This usually means doses of 50mg or less per day. Men can take Anavar ( Oxandralone ) at 50mg doses. They can do 50mg per day for up to 90 days and then need to take a 60 to 90 day break to prevent any liver damage.
Androgenic = 24
Anabolic = 322-630
Standard = methyltestosterone (oral)
Estrogen activity = None
Pregestational Activity = None
Anavar Approved Uses
Anavar is an anabolic steroid and should be used with caution. Oxandrolone has been researched and prescribed as a treatment for a wide variety of conditions. It is FDA-approved for treating bone pain associated with osteoporosis, aiding weight gain following surgery or physical trauma, during chronic infection, or in the context of unexplained weight loss, and counteracting the catabolic effect of long-term corticosteroid therapy. As of 2016, it is often prescribed off-label to quicken recovery from severe burns, aid the development of girls with Turner syndrome, and counteract HIV/AIDS-induced wasting. Oxandrolone improves both short-term and long-term outcomes in people recovering from severe burns and is well-established as a safe treatment for this indication. It is also used in the treatment of idiopathic short stature, anemia, hereditary angioedema, alcoholic hepatitis, and hypogonadism. Medical research has established the effectiveness of oxandrolone in aiding the development of girls with Turner syndrome. Although oxandrolone has long been used to accelerate growth in children with idiopathic short stature, it is unlikely to increase adult height, and in some cases may even decrease it. Oxandrolone has, therefore, largely been replaced by growth hormone for this use. Children with idiopathic short stature or Turner syndrome are given doses of oxandrolone far smaller than those given to people with burns to minimize the likelihood of virilization and premature maturation.
How Your Body Processes Anavar
The oral bioavailability of Anavar ( oxandrolone ) is 97%. Its plasma protein binding is 94%. Anavar is metabolized primarily by the kidneys and to a lesser extent by the liver. Oxandrolone is the only oral steroid that is not primarily metabolized by the liver. This is most likely why it has diminished hepatotoxicity relative to other oral steroids. Anavar stays in your system for about 10 hours. We recommend taking it half an hour before going to the gym.
Anavar Side Effects
Women who are administered anavar ( oxandrolone ) may experience virilization. This would cause masculine features such as voice deepening, hirsutism, menstruation abnormalities, male-pattern hair loss, and clitoral enlargement. These effects are really only experienced when anavar is abused at doses over 10mg per day. If you experience any of these side effects simply stop taking it and they will stop.
Like other androgens, oxandrolone can cause or worsen acne and priapism (unwanted or prolonged erections). Anavar can reduce fertility in men. It can shut down or reduce testosterone production in men, but typically only occurs at doses over 50mg per day.
Uniquely among 17α-alkylated AAS, anavar shows little to no hepatotoxicity, even at high doses. No cases of severe hepatotoxicity have been singularly attributed to oxandrolone. However, elevated liver enzymes have been observed in some people, particularly with high doses and/or prolonged treatment, although they return to normal ranges following discontinuation.
In short anavar is probably the safest steroid there is when used properly under doctor supervision.
