Oxandro 10 or Oxandrolone (Anavar) is probably the most harmless (in terms of side effects) of all anabolic steroids. After all, it was created primarily for children and women. And even if it is not as effective as other steroids, it does have some valuable properties that make it sometimes simply irreplaceable. But first things first.
Effects of oxandrolone
- Increased muscle relief and hardness – the main effect of oxandrolone
- Burning fat
- Increased HGH level
- Increased strength
Anavar is impractical to use for gaining muscle mass. Oxandrolone cycle is recommended for people who have enough muscle mass and moderate body fat in order to give muscle relief and reduce subcutaneous fat.
Side Effects of Oxandrolone
Although oxandrolone is an alpha-17-alkylated steroid, its toxic effect on the liver is negligible. Studies show that Anavar at a dose of 20 mg per day taken for 12 weeks does not affect the level of liver enzymes (indicators of liver destruction). The first signs of damage to the liver is pain in the right hypochondrium, light stools and dark urine.
Since Anavar is a derivative of dihydrotestosterone, it does not aromatize (does not turn into estrogens, which cause side effects such as gynecomastia and fluid accumulation in the body).
More or less effective dosages of this drug: 50 – 100 mg per day for men, and 20 – 50 mg per day for women and children. And ideally, you need to divide this portion into 3 receptions. This is due to the fact that the half-life of oxandrolone is 8 – 10 hours. And if you divide his reception into three times and take at regular intervals of time, then just get 8 hours.
The fact is that such a device will keep the level of this drug in the body at the same level. And this will slightly increase its effectiveness than if you took it once every 24 hours. In this case, you can not avoid hormonal fluctuations, because after a day in your body, almost nothing will remain from the previous intake. Not that this is bad, but if you can squeeze the maximum out of this drug, then it is better to do so. By the way, the frequency of taking any steroid should be based precisely on the duration of its half-life.
As a rule, dosages of more than 100 mg per day are not advisable. Since the efficiency is almost not growing. And such dosages will be great to beat on your wallet.
