Oxandrolone (Anavar) was originally marketed in the 60s by Searle in several countries with different names: Anavar (USA), Lonavar (Argentina, Japan and Australia), Lipidex (Brazil) and others, but in 1989 this laboratory stopped production , Because he did not want to have his name associated with steroids . However, other laboratories like Italy’s SPA, BTG from the US, Kowa and Dainippon from Japan, continue to produce the same drug. Currently, in Brazil, it is possible to find Oxandrolone manipulated by several laboratories.

Oxandrolone is moderately androgenic and has a good anabolic effect (for this reason it is also widely used by women). Oxandrolone has as its main effect a great increase of force by increasing the deposits of intracellular creatine phosphorus (source of muscle fuel for immediate short-term efforts of approximately 10 seconds). Oxandrolone is an oral derivative of DHT, modified and with an altered half-life. Oxandrolone is “little” toxic to the liver, and is probably the mildest oral steroid in this area. Dosages above 80 mg / day are easily tolerated by most men and few side effects are reported with this drug.
Oxandrolone is intended to assist patients who require an increase in muscle strength. Patients who spend several weeks immobilized may be medicated with Oxandrolone to speed up restoration of body tissues, optimizing recovery.
When used together with bodybuilding, Oxandrolone works on the intracellular structure aiming at increasing strength and consequently increasing muscle mass, provided you have a diet focused on this goal.
In relation to fat burning, Oxandrolone may be called a Fat-burner steroid . Visceral and abdominal fat decreased in a study where patients with normal testosterone levels used Oxandrolone. In another study, total, thoracic and appendiceal fat were reduced with a low dosage of the drug, 20 mg / day, and without exercise. Moreover the gains appear to be solid and permanent.
Oxandrolone has a range of possible combinations when not used alone. In the case of men, it can be combined with testosterone , trenbolone, boldenone and stanozolol , provided that it is not orally. The female audience, however, gets a bit narrower in its use, being able to combine it with injectable estanozolol (I do not think legal cycles with doses of testosterone for women).

Is post cycle therapy required?
Oxandrolone, as well as any other AAS, causes suppression of the HPT axis. For a long time, and in many circles, it has been believed that oxandrolone did not affect the endogenous production of testosterone, but this is not true. Although the suppression caused by oxandrolone is light and easily reversed, it does exist. Thus, even with the rebound effect on the production of LH and testosterone, it is necessary to do the TPC at the end of the cycle, which may be a lighter TPC than the one usually used in cycles with stronger drugs. Starting the CPT 24 hours after the very useful dose, in the first 2 weeks 100mg / day of Clomiphene + 40mg / day of Tamoxifen. In the next 2 weeks reduce the dosage by half. Some people perform TPC with the Purus Labs + Tribulus 1000 mg Recycle supplement per day for 4 weeks.
