Anabolic Steroids / Bodybuilding Blog





Anavar is a mild anabolic androgenic steroid which both women and children can use. It was introduced to the market in year 1964 by Searle Laboratories with the purpose to slow down wasting brought about by diseases like AIDS, pain due to osteoporosis and children with hormonal deficiency disorder.

Anavar suppresses muscle degeneration by controlling the action of glucocorticoids. It is important to control these compounds because these glucocorticoids produce alternative energy source when glucose is not available. In this process, the glucocorticoids break down protein since no glucose is available. In this case, Anavar is essential since it prevents this process, thus it allows the muscle tissue to have sufficient time to regenerate or reproduce.

This compound is a derivative of androgen and exhibits weak anabolic property. This means that Anavar can improve the process of protein synthesis and helps in producing significant muscle build-up. Even if this steroid has mild androgenic effect, Anavar makes up for it by enhancing the production of creatine phosphate. This molecule provides muscles with more strength and power.

Anavar does not convert to estrogen or female hormone, unlike other types of anabolic androgenic steroids. This property will avoid the development of estrogen-related effects. This means that muscle tissues will not absorb and accumulate water and unwanted fluid in between connective fibers. Having no fluid or fats within the muscle fibers will result to meatier, more solid and leaner physique. Another benefit of not having these fat deposits and water retention, users will not fear of acquiring weight gain, increased cholesterol deposits, high blood pressure and palpitation.

A lot of bodybuilders and athletes will benefit from the anti-estrogen property of Anavar. Since estrogenic effects are not evident, male users need not to worry about having male boobs or gynecomastia. Another advantage of this compound is that it does not cause decrease in the production of endogenous testosterone. Changes in libido, however, may still occur due to the androgenic effect of Anavar. Although Anavar has mild androgenic effect, some female users may still experience few virilizing effects like deep and hoarse voice and rapid growth of facial and body hair, especially if given a daily dose of 15mg. Acne formation and increased aggressiveness, are also likely to occur in both male and females users.

Anavar is advised to be given after meals in order to avoid stomach upset and vomiting loose bowel movement. For therapeutic purpose, this compound is administered at a dose of 2.5 to 20 mg a day, divided into 2 to 4 doses for 2 to 4 weeks.
