This post will talk about the benefits and side effects of anavar (plus where bodybuilders source it). If you want to buy var without getting scammed read this guide.
Anavar (oxandrolone) is one of the most popular steroids in the world right now.
…Which shouldn’t come as a shock with bodybuilding becoming more mainstream than ever before, and 2/3’s of Americans likely to become obese in 2019.
But, what exactly is anavar and should you buy it?
What Is Anavar?
Anavar is part of the AAS (anabolic-androgenic steroid) family. It has a very high anabolic rating, (being 6x more anabolic than testosterone), whilst producing having weak androgenic properties. It was originally created in 1962 for medicinal purposes, helping patients add lean mass after suffering from catabolic illness, recovering from surgery or infection
One of the main objectives when first producing anavar was to reduce its toxicity, so it could be better tolerated by women and children. GD Searle and co. who first manufactured anavar, succeeded in doing this, with women not experiencing the virilization symptoms of other steroids. And children were able to tolerate anavar due to it being less harsh on the body.
Why Do So Many People Buy Anavar?
Last month over 1,900 people typed “anavar for sale” into Google. And even more people are whispering about it in bodybuilding gyms across the globe.
So, what’s all the hype about?
Anavar has many different benefits, with it being a particularly versatile compound.
Firstly, you can expect to burn a significant amount of fat on var, with it spiking your metabolism. You’ll also lose water weight with it having diuretic attributes (reducing bloat and increasing muscle tone).
Secondly, you can expect to build lean muscle tissue due to its high anabolic activity. If you’re cutting on very low calories, users may not build muscle – but instead retain muscle mass.
The third reason why so many people covet anavar is because it makes you insanely strong. This is a very unique characteristic for a cutting compound, however this effect is thought to it being a DHT-derivative.
Thus many people take anavar if they want to increase their muscle size and strength, whilst staying ripped and aesthetic. Other AAS can help users build more muscle and strength than var, but not everyone wants to look bloated or experience the severe side effects of harsher anabolics (tren, dianabol, anadrol).
In the U.S anavar is classed as a scheduled III controlled substance (which is the same for all anabolic steroids). This means it’s illegal to purchase without a prescription from a doctor.
Anavar is banned in many countries in the world due to its side effects. Although it’s a very weak anabolic steroid – it still produces moderate adverse effects which can contribute to a decline in health (in already healthy individuals).
Because of it being illegal, we do not recommend you buy anavar.
Anavar Side Effects
- Decline in testosterone
- Spike in LDL cholesterol
- Higher blood pressure
- Liver damage
Anavar’s side effects are similar to many other AAS, however they’re less severe. For example, anavar may decrease your testosterone levels by 50% by the end of your cycle. Whereas anadrol may shut your T production down by 80%.
In the early stages of a cycle, users can become more assertive, aggressive and have a high libido (due to an initial spike in T). Whereas a few weeks later they may feel more sluggish and their sexual interest may decrease.
Cholesterol levels (the bad kind) are also likely to take an upward shift on anavar. Due to LDL levels spiking, a users blood pressure will also increase. Thus it could be dangerous for individuals which have a history of heart disease or high blood pressure to use compounds like var.
Acne, spots or oily skin can be common among some users, due to more sebum production on the surface of the skin.
If your liver’s not in stellar condition, taking anavar could also aggravate your condition, as it is hepatotoxic. Again, it’s one of the least toxic AAS, but it will tax the liver; so this is something to consider if you have a history of liver cirrhosis in your family.
Where Do Bodybuilders Get Var From?
Because of its illegal status, bodybuilders have no choice but to source it from underground labs, or pharmaceutical companies (illegally). Gone are the days where you can go to your local doctor and tell him/her what steroids you want for bodybuilding purposes.
Docs will only prescribe AAS nowadays if you have a medical need for them, such as a muscle-wasting disease.
Every year, more and more people are looking to purchase anavar, but aren’t aware of the health complications that this compound can cause.
It may be the safest of all AAS, but it’s still an illegal drug. If it was safe the FDA would approve it, enabling supplement manufacturers to legally add it to their supplements.
Men and women who are looking to lose weight do NOT need to use steroids like anavar. Exercise and smart dieting is all that’s needed to lose fat and get lean. If you want to take a natural fat burner to help you spike your metabolism – go for it. This will also be a lot cheaper than taking oxandrolone – which is incredibly expensive.
