Oxandrolone was first produced in the 1960s, in the United States. The initial goal of producing this product was to find an anabolic steroid that did not close to the end of the bones as medics needed the steroid for children who suffered from growth problems. This was an issue as previously used steroid had a tendency to close up the end of the bone, which halts further growth. The doctor observed and came to realize that not only did Oxandrolone not close up the end of the bones, it was also a growth stimulant. In fact, this steroid is still used by doctors today for children with a growth problem. To date, Oxandrolone is the only one steroid which has the potential to do that.
Oxandrolone has a mild androgenic and anabolic compound, which shows that this steroid is not a mass builder. A sportsperson cannot gain a lot of weight with Oxandrolone, nor will they be able to build a lot of muscle. For that purpose, there are many other steroids available in the market, which are more affordable such as Methandienone, Deca Durabolin, and Equipoise (which are the mass builders). Note that Anavar is NOT one of them.
However, we cannot dismiss Anavar as it has some very strong points;
- Anavar does not convert any dosage of Oxandrolone into estrogen. That makes this steroid especially beneficial for bodybuilders and weight lifters. Not only is this steroid used in a wide spectrum of sports, but even actors prepping for movie roles who require a product that can help them get in shape, lose fat, and gain a minimal amount of muscles without retaining water use this steroid.
- Oxandrolone stimulates ATP (creatine phosphor syntheses), which is why athletes get stronger when using this steroid. If combined with creatine monohydrate or by consuming a lot of red meat while consuming this product, you will be able to literally feel yourself getting stronger without gaining much weight. Bodybuilders use Oxandrolone primarily during their diet, periods where they perform a lot of cardio and long heavy workouts, as this product aids in muscle conservation.
- Anavar does not, in any amount, depress your natural test production; as long as you use no more than 30-40 mg of Oxandrolone a day, it will not cease your own test production, which is interestingly almost none of the other steroids can do that.
Dosage: beginners – no more than 15-30mg; advanced bodybuilders – 30-60mg/day. Period of use varies from 12-16 weeks without a problem.
