Anavar tablets, known among professional bodybuilders as 'Var,' was developed in the 1960s by Searle, (known as Pfizer since the 1990s).
It is an oral methylated steroid used in the 1980s to prevent muscle wasting in AIDS patients.
It has a low toxicity compared to other steroids, low androgenic effects and is only mildly anabolic.
It is particularly popular with competitive athletes for its mild HPTA (Hypothalamic-Testicular-Pituitary-Axis). Still, there is a great deal of misinformation surrounding this drug. Buy Anvarol online here.

Like all steroids, Anavar tablets pose a risk of liver damage so don’t consume alcohol while on cycle.
It can disrupt kidney function after prolonged use. And it has the effect of raising LDL (bad cholesterol) while lowering HDL (good cholesterol).
These are standard for all steroids, however as stated, Anavar’s harmful side effects are less pronounced than those of any other steroid.
Where users run into trouble with Anavar tablets is when they assume it is completely safe. It is not. It can cause dangerous allergic reactions, as can any drug. And when used as a replacement for a rigorous fitness regimen, it can be very dangerous.
Because of its effects on cholesterol it is not recommended for anyone who does not have a long history of healthy dieting and exercise.
Anyone who is overweight, has poor cardiovascular fitness, does not adhere to a low-fat diet or does not have an active lifestyle should stay away from this drug.
It is only recommended for athletes who, after much intensive training, wish to break through a plateau beyond which they otherwise have not been able to progress.
Other less common side effects include:
Short courses of oral steroids like Anavar tablets usually last between one to two weeks as prescribed for severe attacks of asthma. It is rare for problems to occur in these cases.
Longer courses of use make side effects more likely. The longer the use, the more likely that dangerous side effects will occur. Repeated short-term uses also increase the risk of problems.
Likewise, the higher the dose, the more likely that the user will develop undesirable side effects. Some disease symptoms require higher doses.
In all cases, physicians begin by prescribing the lowest possible dose and increase it slowly as needed until the desired effects are achieved.
It is also advised that persons who have been taking an oral steroid for more than three weeks should not stop taking them suddenly. In that time, it is likely that the user will have developed tissue dependence.
This means that the structures of the user’s cells have retooled themselves so that they need the drug in order to function. At this point, the user should slowly step down their dose over the course of six to eight weeks.
Then proceeding to take a post cycle therapy will help the body restore to its normal function.
The average dose for experienced athletes is 50mg per day for 6 to 8 weeks. The upper limit of recommended doses go as high as 150mg, but most users will be courting serious health risks at that level of use.
Be aware that wherever you find it for sale, buy Anavar tablets at a price that reflects the true manufacturing costs of the drug to avoid getting a dangerous or ineffective knock off product.
The cost of a quality pharmaceutical product comes with a dosage price of between $5 and $12 per 10mg Anavar tablet.
This means a typical cycle with a worthwhile product will cost roughly $1000 to $1500.
Oral steroids that come in the form of pills are usually taken by weightlifters who are not comfortable with using injectable forms of these drugs.
The downfall of the oral version, however, is that it gets passed through the liver.
While it is the liver’s function to filter and neutralize harmful substances, it is particularly vulnerable to steroids which are toxic to the liver.
Oral steroids like Anavar tablets are also prone to lose about 35% to 40% of their natural bioavailability when taken orally because the liver will destroy that percentage of the dose so ingested.
Taking these drugs via an injection bypasses the liver, allowing more of the drug to affect the body. It also minimizes liver damage. Injecting steroids still damages other parts of the body as much or more than they would without by-passing the liver.
Another point about oral steroids is that because the liver absorbs a large amount of the drug, users who are pushing for greater performance are likely to be tempted to use even higher excess doses than they would if they were taking the drug intravenously.
Dosage and duration are always a top concern for anyone taking Anavar tablets or the powder for its anabolic properties. (These can be impossible to gauge if you’re not using a pure product, so never buy Anavar from a disreputable source.)
Though it can be used in an athletes’ off-season, otherwise known as growth phases- most male bodybuilders will not find Anavar pills to be an ideal choice for gaining muscle weight. It is not well suited for putting on large amounts of muscle.
It is better for retaining muscle during a cutting phase. Those who do use it during a bulking phase are not likely to use Anavar tablets as their only steroid. They will usually be using Deca Durabolin at the same time.
Those who wish to keep steroid use to an absolute minimum, or are only interested in experimenting briefly, can reasonably use it during a bulking phase, rather than nothing, or something harsher.
Anavar reviews have called it ‘the female steroid‘ mainly because of its mildness, and because it has much less of the androgenic effects associated with other steroids.
Also, because of its lower toxicity, women are more likely to choose it and to be able to run it safely.
Another reason it is popular with female bodybuilders is because it is well suited for use during cutting phases, that is it can help with weight loss, even though it is not a weight loss drug.
Most male users are advised to use Anavar tablets during cutting cycles in preparation for a competition. While, it is better for aiding users to achieve strength and bulk, it lacks in these areas to the degree that it aids in detailing the physique.
