Anavar was first created as a treatment for conditions such as muscle wasting and quick weight loss. Searle Laboratories were credited for the development of this drug in the year 1964. In the year 2003, Pfizer acquired Searle leading to the latter's disappearance from the market. However, Searle has to be given credit where it deserves as it developed Anavar alongside several other popular medications namely Ambien, Dramamine, and Nutrasweet. Through the development of Anavar, considered to be among the safest steroids in the world, Searle had set a new safety standard, a benchmark others would follow thereafter.
Anavar comprises of Oxandrolone, and is popular as a DHT anabolic steroid with non-existent androgenic characteristics and weak anabolic characteristics. Anavar, like most other oral anabolic steroids have been modified (C17alpha-alkylated) so that it can be survive ingestion into our system and get pass the liver's filtration attempts. Without this modification the steroid would be rendered ineffective as soon as it reaches our bloodstream. Because of this alteration we can consume steroids orally and expect similar benefits as we do from inject-able forms of the steroid. Studies show that the C17alpha-alkylated modification can be harmful for the liver with several oral steroids being branded as harmful towards the liver. This has stopped many a person from ever thinking about oral steroid administration. However, people need to be made aware of the fact that despite Anavar being a C-17aplha-alkylated oral steroid, it has not been known to cause any major liver damage. This steroid affects the liver mildly and most users do not experience any major elevations in their liver enzymes post Anavar administration.
Once Anavar reaches the bloodstream it activates instantly, which is a common feature with most oral steroids, especially the ones with DHT characteristics. This rapid time of activity is because of its short lifespan of 9 hours. Because of this short lifespan, an optimal dosage for Anavar would be twice a day. There are many users who use it just once per day and even then reaping the benefits of this steroid. Many experts recommend twice a day to be the appropriate dosage to keep the blood levels stabilized. In females, once per day should be enough to get the desired effects.
Benefits of Anavar
Above we discussed how Anavar seems to have quite a few things going for itself in terms of safety. Here we have listed a few more benefits this drug has for its users:
Side effects of Anavar
As we discussed earlier, there are not too many side-effects to write home about when we are discussing Anavar. This is why it has rightfully earned its reputation of being the safest anabolic steroid out there. Yet, with through misuse or prolonged usage of Anavar, side effects may eventually show in some form. There is the risk of Gynecomastia, the abnormal development of breasts in some males. This is likely to occur only when the user has prolonged his administration beyond recommendation or abused his doses. The development of male breasts can be a social deterrent and an embarrassing feature to carry around for men. The only remedy to Gynecomastia is surgery.
Women absolutely love Anavar. This is that one anabolic steroid which is unlikely to give them any masculine characteristics like hoarser voices, or facial hair. It is however recommended that women need to keep their dosages in check and not abuse the drug. Overusing the drug may result in major alterations in the menstrual cycle of the woman and cause extreme complications when she is trying to conceive a baby. Also, her clitoris may undergo abnormal enlargement as a side effect of misusing the drug. This change is going to be permanent and one she cannot get rid of.
Earlier we discussed how Anavar does not inflict any major damage to the liver. Despite of that fact, it is recommend for users considering steroid administration to at least get his liver checked once before he starts using them. However little Anavar's impact may be on the liver, it is never a good idea to take a chance with such a vital organ of your body. When you are on Anavar, ask your doctor to conduct regular liver checkups to ensure it is functioning well and not suffering from the steroid administration. The doctor will be in the best position to guide you if any complications show up and this is also immensely necessary for your peace of mind.
Users with a history of problems such as blood pressure or high cholesterol levels should not consider Anavar administration. Anavar administration can further increase those complications and lead to the possibility of strokes or a heart attack. For those who have heart disease in their family history, there is an elevated chance of suffering from heart complications on Anavar administration.
Some users who used Anavar have reported disturbed sleep patterns and insomnia. They also experience libido problems and a subdued sex life. Nausea is experienced when the steroid has been taken on an empty stomach. This may be subsequently followed by bouts of vomiting. If you observe skin color going yellowish, you have been affected by Jaundice which implies that your liver functioning has been violated.
Last few notes on Anavar
With the various steroids you are likely to encounter in the market today, there is no other drug in the market which generates such curiosity. Anavar, because of the safety standards it has set, has over the years gained a massive fan following, be it those athletes or bodybuilders looking to enhance their performance using this steroid or those looking to reduce their weight quickly without having to go through rigorous gym schedules.
The authorities need to get this information out in the general public about the ill-effects of procuring controlled drugs from the black market. Those found guilty should not be let go scot-free and strict sanctions should be imposed on them. The authorities should scrutinize every play being made by the black market and react accordingly. Research and development organizations working on the development of Anavar, should be encouraged and provided with all the resources possible so that they can make advances in their bid to make this drug beneficial to all.
