ANAVAR BASIC INFORMATION
Anavar (Oxandrolone) which was often refereed to as an all purpose oral AAS. This drug was once marketed under the product name (still commonly used trade name) of Anavar. It has the unique quality of significantly stimulating (more than other AAS) the synthesis of phosphocreatine in muscle cells which in turn provides faster regeneration of, and a distinct elevation in, ATP. Of course all AAS have this effect to some extent. Anavar is simply unmatched in this aspect. Due to this quality, a rapid build- up in strength was frequently reported and an obvious distinct hardness in muscle was obtained with little weight gain and no aromatization.
Though it is a common belief that Oxandrolone is not very anabolic, a clinical study showed a 44% increase in muscle cell protein synthesis after only 5 days of administration. Since Oxandrolone does not aromatize to estrogen, water retention is reported as quite low and gyno was of no concern. Also, for the same reason, during dieting phases fat deposits were said to be “burned away” more quickly. (Especially when the drug was co-administered with Clenbuterol).
Anavar or Oxandrolone does not suppress any part of the HYPOTHALAMUS-PITUITARY-TESTES AXIS (HPTA). This means Oxandrolone by itself will not significantly suppress natural testosterone production. Therefore it was not uncommon for some athletes to report post-cycle HPTA regeneration protocols that included this drug.
Anavar – Oxandrolone was reported to stack well with so -called mass steroids such as testosterone or with high anabolic/moderate androgenic steroids such as Equipoise or Nandrolones. Persons over 40 have reported excellent results by stacking 15-25 mg of Oxandrolone daily with 200-400 mg of Deca.
