Anavar, commonly known as “Var” was the first brand name attached to Oxandrolone, a drug made by Searle, now Pfizer, and in many ways there is a lot of confusion surrounding this steroid.
In some respects it is “underrated” and in others it is “over-rated”. Anavar pills are considered to be a mild acting oral steroid with a number of uses.
For someone who’s trying steroids for the very first time, it’s a good choice since it doesn’t cause a lot of unpleasant side effects.
But all this goes out the window if the user is not staying within the recommended dosage. This is the problem.
If you use Anavar pills safely, it may not be very effective.
But if you use enough to make it effective, it isn’t so safe anymore. Click here to buy legal Anavar online, without a prescription.
The pharmaceutical form of Anavar (Oxandrolone) comes in 2.5mg tablets, which is the recommended low dose.
This is why it’s known for being so “mild”. In these low therapeutic dosages, it’s even safe for children.
But for bodybuilders, these recommended low doses wouldn’t be worthwhile. With any oral steroid, taking 25mg – 50mg a day is necessary to get results.
There are even some experienced bodybuilders that take up to 100mg a day.
So when you consider prescription strength Anavar, you could still take 10 tablets a day and you’d it would still be considered a low dose.
Hence, unlike pharmaceutical grade Anavar, when you buy Var from an Underground Lab the pills are usually 20mg to 50mg apiece.
This is a serious problem when conducting business with UG labs; you really have no idea if the doses you’re taking are correct.
We all know that underground labs have lower quality standards than pharmaceutical grade sources. This means pills may be overdosed or they may be underdosed.
Buying oral Anavar pills from local suppliers could also result in you taking counterfeit product or tablets that have been contaminated with impurities or other ingredients.
This is the big question regarding the effectiveness of Anavar and could very well be the reason there’s such a disparity of opinion on the drug. Some people just love it while others are disappointed.
The best way to protect yourself and get good results when using Var is to make sure you are getting Anavar pills from a legit, trusted source.
Look for real user reviews, photos and online testimonials to help you decide which vendors to trust and which to avoid.
The reason Anavar pills were originally developed was to treat patients suffering severe weight loss so it was prescribed for patients with muscle wasting diseases, which includes AIDS.
When these patients took 5mg – 10mg a day in tablet form, they got good results.
But using it to treat and prevent muscle wasting is completely different that using Anavar to build muscles.
You also have to know that with any oral steroid, if you continue to exceed 50mg a day you are at a real risk of having problems.
But Var is not considered to be as toxic on the liver as most other oral anabolic steroids. However, this is not at all true.
Unfortunately the studies done on the toxicity of Anavar were undertaken using the dosages recommended for medical purposes, not bodybuilding.
So if you take 2.5mg – 5mg a day there will be very little, if any affect on the liver.
This distorted evaluation is actually “junk science” done by someone who read up on the studies and learned a few things and then jumped to what they think is a reasonable conclusion.
They then blast it over the Internet claiming they’re an expert, and other “experts” repeat it endlessly.
In the end it isn’t challenged and becomes “common knowledge”, when in fact it’s totally erroneous.
Don’t be taken in. Anavar has been formulated to so that it will not breakdown in the liver, after all it is 17 alpha alkylated.
This does allow it to be very effective but make no mistake; it does put a lot of strain on the liver. And this problem alone is what makes orals risky.
It’s not that the substance is toxic itself, but that it is taken orally and must pass through the liver.
Anavar, taken in doses that would be effective for bodybuilding should be considered hepatotoxic just like other oral anabolic steroids.
Anyone using Anavar must always consider dosage and duration.
And another thing to remember is that the dosage of one steroid that you’re taking is not the issue, it’s the dosage of all the different steroids that you’re using that’s at issue, your TOTAL usage.
This is why it’s crucial to protect your liver by taking the recommended supplements when you’re using Anavar.
There are a number of different products that protect the liver very well and do it in several ways:
• Liv 52 – This is an ayurvaedic medicine that combines different herbs which flus toxins out of the liver.
• POST-CYCLE by Protein Factory – This contains substances that can regenerate liver cells.
The recommendation is that when using oral steroids including Dianabol, one should consider taking both supplements for maximum liver protection.
The one exception might be if you’re using Primobolan acetate since it’s not a 17 AA.
Var is able to be stacked, or used, with other steroids and offers a welcome advantage to any cycle.
If you’re new at using steroids and start with Anavar pills alone, you will see some solid gains in muscle, just not overnight.
Anavar has the effect of greatly increasing anabolism, which means it helps the muscles absorb more protein.
So the process of building muscle is increased, but it does take time.
