Anavar is the brand name for Oxandrolone, which is an oral anabolic steroid. The drug was introduced in 1964 and immediately became popular because of its mild effects. It is a weak steroid with only a slight androgenic component. Unlike most oral steroids which are Class II, Anavar is a Class I steroid and has good binding to the AR. Since it has very little other effects, other than its binding ability to the AR, it is considered a mild steroid. In fact it is so mild that even children can safely take it.
Anavar is not very toxic, nor very androgenic. It is mildly anabolic and pretty mild on the body\’s HPTA (Hypothalamic-Testicular-Pituitary-Axis). Moreover, it is one of the few steroids which do not cause an early stunting of growth in children since it does not prematurely close the epiphysial growth plates. For this reason Anavar (Oxandrolone) is used in children to stimulate growth.
These properties of Anavar make it favorable for women and children. Anavar is used in women to prevent osteoporosis which is another reason why Anavar is a favored remedy for female athletes. Today it is also one of the top drugs used for treating HIV/AIDS.
What is Oxandrolone?
Oxandrolone represents a 17-alpha alkylated anabolic steroid which is chosen by sportsmen because of its less toxic effect. Oxandrolone is a DHT derivative and is considered to be easy on the liver. This compound is also a good choice for bodybuilders and athletes as it does not aromatize. Another important thing about Oxandrolone is the fact that it was approved for orphan drug status by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in treating diseases like alcoholic hepatitis, Turner\’s syndrome, and weight loss caused by HIV, anemia and hereditary angioedema. In most cases, Oxandrolone is taken to promote strength and muscle hardness. Oxandrolone is often chosen by those bodybuilders/athletes who are in their pre-contest period, in order to keep their muscles hardness without gaining additional weight. Also, Oxandrolone is considered to be an excellent fat burner and it is often taken in cutting cycles. Because of its extremely mild nature, Oxandrolone is a popular supplement amongst female sportswomen. Oxandrolone is produced by many reputable pharmaceutical companies such as Anavar (Hubei), Bonavar (Body Research).
How Anavar Hubei works?
Although Anavar is an oral steroid, it has been alpha-alkylated to survive oral ingestion and the first pass through the liver. The unique chemical configuration of oxandrolone both confers a resistance to liver metabolism as well as noticeable anabolic activity. Anavar does not appear to exhibit the serious hepatotoxic effects such as jaundice, cholestatic hepatitis, peliosis hepatis, hyperplasias and neoplasms which are typically attributed to the C17alpha-alkylated AASs. Anavar has also been used successfully in some studies to heal cutaneous wounds or to improve respiratory function and these properties could make it a good choice for in-season use by boxers, mixed martial arts competitors, and other such athletes.
Anavar is a great anabolic steroid for assisting with the process of strengthening muscles as well as muscle mass. Bodybuilders looking to gain weight and strength can stack Anavar with a Class II steroid such as dianabol or anadrol. They will need very high doses of the drug, and for serious bodybuilders, anything less than 20mgs per day is not enough. Patients who need to start halting AIDS related wasting or those recovering weight after serious burns also need very high doses.
Most body builders use Anavar when they are in the cutting phase of their training at it helps to eliminate the issue of water retention. Women also prefer using Anavar over other steroids because it doesn\’t cause masculinization like many other steroids out there.
Since it is a mild steroid, high amounts of Anavar dosage are needed.
Effective dose for Anavar is 5 – 15 mg per day.
For women, however, 2.5 – 10 mgs per day are sufficient.
The rule of thumb is to take 0.125mg/pound of body weight daily to get optimum results.
