Oxandrolone is an anabolic steroid with a low level of androgenic activity and a high anabolic index, now actively used in bodybuilding and not only. It is also used by boxers, skiers, powerlifters and track and field athletes. It was originally used in secular medicine for supportive treatment of HIV patients, as well as for osteochondrosis, anaemia, diabetes mellitus, osteoporosis, for tissue repair after burns, for strengthening bone tissue, etc. Currently known under such trade names as Anavar (original name), Vasorome, Bonavar, Oxandrolin, Oxandrin, Anatrophyll, Oxandrolone.
Effects of use Oxandrolone in bodybuilding
The use of Oxandrolone in bodybuilding has become quite popular due to its qualities such as:
- Significant increase in athletes’ muscle strength and endurance.
- Increasing the elasticity and hardness of the musculature, giving it relief. Oxandrolone for relief is very effective.
- “Oxana” also has a pronounced fat-burning effect, and therefore oxandrolone for weight loss is not the worst option.
- No aromatisation, which excludes the possibility of gynecomastia and other secondary sexual characteristics.
A fairly low level of androgenicity and a high anabolic index. The anabolic index is the ratio of the level of anabolic activity (the process of increased protein production and muscle mass building) to androgenic activity (this is the unpleasant process that causes secondary sexual characteristics, such as, for example, “man boobs” or excessive body hair in women). The ratio here is about 400% testosterone for anabolic activity to 20-25% androgenic activity. The higher this index, the better for the athlete.
Low toxicity to the liver.
When using “oxa”, the work of the endocrine system is not suppressed.
Increased production of somatotropic hormone (growth hormone – somatotropin).
Oxandrolone is excellent for women, as it does not cause such unpleasant consequences for ladies as baldness or increased hairiness. And for female bodybuilders – this is not an important point, because rarely any more or less adequate madam will agree to exchange her beauty for a bunch of muscles, albeit very pretty and relief.
The drug is used both for building up lean muscle and for burning excess fat and giving muscles a beautiful relief.
