Anavar Results

The anabolic steroid Oxandrolone is an immensely popular steroid in the performance enhancing world by both men and women. Commonly known by its most popular trade name “Anavar”, it is one of the most highly desired steroids on the market. By-in-large, Anavar results can be seen most effectively during a cutting cycle as it does not significantly promote mass in men. However, through use during a bulking cycle by women, because females are far more sensitive to the hormone, with proper diet and training the use of Anavar results in a more muscular athlete. Even so, females will still benefit from this hormone far more during a cutting cycle than an off-season bulker. Even so, there are some very common myths and misconceptions regarding the Oxandrolone hormone and it is time we laid some of the more ridiculous ones aside. Through this process, you’ll have a better understanding of the hormone, and further, be able to determine if Anavar results are worth your time.

Myth 1:

Anavar results in no testosterone suppression.

Truth 1:

If you supplement with anabolic steroids your natural testosterone production will be suppressed. Because Oxandrolone is such a mild anabolic steroid, for some reason many believe testosterone suppression does not occur. This is simply not true. Granted, total suppression will not be as strong as it would be with many other steroids, but it will occur nonetheless. For this reason, male performance enhancers are encouraged to supplement with exogenous testosterone when Oxandrolone is used. Not only will this provide you with the testosterone your body needs, but it will ensure your Anavar results are all they can be, as testosterone itself is highly anabolic.

Myth 2:

Adverse Anavar results include Gynecomastia and excess water retention.

Truth 2:

This is not only a myth but an outright lie. Gynecomastia and water retention are both impossible with the Anavar steroid as it does not aromatize nor carry any estrogenic traits. If you fall prey to Gynecomastia, it will be due to another steroid you’re possibly using. As for water retention, it could be caused by another steroid that does aromatize or it could be caused by you overeating, especially if you’re eating too many carbohydrates.

Myth 3:

Oxandrolone is not toxic to the liver.

Truth 3:

Because Anavar is such a mild anabolic steroid, many believe liver toxicity is not a concern. The truth is absolute; like most oral anabolic steroids Anavar belongs to the C17-aa family and is, therefore, toxic. It is true, Oxandrolone is far less toxic than most oral anabolic steroids; far less toxic than many over the counter medications and far less damaging than excess alcohol consumption, but this does not mean it does not carry a toxic nature. There’s no two ways about it, the use of Anavar results in your liver enzyme levels increasing. Once use is discontinue, assuming you have been responsible with your use and have not caused any other undue stress to the liver, your enzyme levels will return to normal shortly after use is discontinued, and no permanent damage will be done.

Myth 4:

Anavar results in zero virilization in women.

Truth 4:

It is true, Anavar is a very female friendly, and for the vast majority of women if they keep their use at a responsible level they will experience no virilization symptoms. However, if your dose goes too high, you can guarantee the Anavar results you see will not be the ones you desire. Further, and this is extremely important to remember, because we are all unique individuals, we will all respond to the hormone in a unique way. For this reason, some women, even with responsible use may fall prey to virilization symptoms. If this occurs, and if the woman discontinues use as soon as the symptoms begin to show they will fade away, and she will be fine.

Myth 5:

Anavar results in very few benefits because it is so mild.

Truth 5:

There’s no way around this truth, the Oxandrolone hormone is much milder than most anabolic steroids. For the man looking for a powerful steroid, this is not the best choice to make. However, it can be an excellent addition to a well-planned cycle. In many ways, the best way to view Oxandrolone use as it pertains to male athletes is supplemental steroid use to a supplemental steroid plan. Simply put, view it as an addition to an already well-planned stack, sort of as a bonus item. As for women, the exact opposite can be said; in-fact, Anavar alone can bring about everything the female athlete is after. This is not to say it is the only performance enhancing tool she can use, but without question, it is primary.
