Anavar: brief description
Oxandrolone, the active substance of the drug, is a structural derivative of dihydrotestosterone, the biologically active form of testosterone. Chemical modifications were made to enhance the anabolic effect, weaken androgenic action and the possibility of oral administration. On sale (in the United States and Western Europe) “oxana” (slang abbreviation) appeared in the 60s of the 20th century, produced under the trade mark Anavar and intended for medicinal use.
What effect does Anavar have? Why is the drug and its analogues of the active substance so appreciated by trainees? With the correct construction of the course for sports purposes, its effect is usually complex and pronounced, which is why oxandrolone products are in high demand among amateurs and sports professionals. At the same time, it remains one of the most harmless steroid hormones not only for men, but also for women.
