Oxandrolone was born in the United States in 1964 under the name “Anavar” of the company “Searl”. It is a mild steroid with a very low androgenic component. Oxandrolone in reasonable doses has not been shown to cause any side effects, tk. The medicine was originally designed for use in women and children. It is one of the few steroids that in children does not cause premature retardation in physical development because. does not promote closure of pineal joints. Therefore, in medicine the drug is used mainly in children to promote physical growth and in women with osteoporosis.
The drug causes (if at all causes very small phenomena of masculinization. Due to this quality it is a very good drug for women, as at a dose of 10-15 mg per day they rarely have external manifestations of masculinity.
Bodybuilders and weightlifters love Oxandrolone. It contributes to great resilience because. stimulates the synthesis of creatine phosphate in the muscle cell and does not retain fluid.
It is used by weightlifters and strong lifters who do not want to move into the heavier category, as the drug gives them the opportunity to become stronger without increasing their own weight.
Steroid profile Oxandrolone
- Anabolic effect – 400% testosterone.
- Androgenic effect – 25% testosterone.
- The rate of conversion to estrogen (aromatization) is absent.
- The effect on the liver is weak / moderate.
- Release form – tablets.
- The period of validity is a maximum of 12 hours.
- The detection time for doping control can be as long as a month and a half.
I have to say that taking oxandrolone may be the best solution for women. The low probability and severity of side effects (high anabolic index) indicate the exceptional safety of anavar.
Anavar belongs to the family of dihydrotestosterone derivatives (DHT). In fact, it is dihydrotestosterone with methylation at position 17. This structural change allows the compound to cross the liver barrier when taken orally, making it more resistant to liver metabolism. The second change was in the structure of the substance: in the first cycloalkane ring of the molecule, the second carbon atom was removed and replaced with oxygen. Thanks to this structural change, Anavar occupies a special place among steroids, as it is the only compound in this group that has a direct modification of the ring structure: carbon is completely replaced by an atom of another element. This feature is probably the reason for the increased anabolic activity of the hormonal agent compared to the parent compound. One of the mechanisms responsible for the high anabolic efficacy of this modification of Anavar (compared to DHT) is thought to be an increase in resistance to the enzyme 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase. This enzyme, present in muscle, catalyzes the conversion of DHT to a non-anabolic metabolite. This explains the lack of anabolic effect of dihydrotestosterone on muscle tissue. The compound is deactivated by 3-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase before acting on androgen receptors in muscle.
Effects of oxandrolone intake
Increase muscle hardness and relief. A steroid is most commonly used for this. Bodybuilders in the course of dryness with oxandrolone achieve high quality sculpted muscle mass without accumulation of fluid.
Increasing power indicators. The anavar steroid is widely used by boxers, athletes, skiers and weightlifters.
Increases growth hormone levels.
Burning body fat.
