Anavar is a mild steroid with only a slight androgenic component. In reasonable dosages, it has been observed to have very rare or no side effects. This compound was developed primarily for women and children.
Anavar does not prematurely close the epiphysial growth plates and hence does not cause stunting of growth in children. Anavar is commonly used as a growth enhancer in children and to prevent osteoporosis in women. Its very light virilization symptoms, if any do occur, makes Anavar ideal for female athletes at a safe daily dosage of 10-15 mg.
In bodybuilders and powerlifters Anavar causes a strong strength gain by stimulating the Phosphocreatine synthesis in the muscle cell without depositing liquid (water) in the joints and the muscles. Powerlifters and weightlifters who do not want to end up in a higher weight class take advantage of this since it allows them to get stronger without gaining body weight at the same time.
A dosage of 5-8 tablets in men and 1-2 tablets in women seems to bring the best results. The rule of thumb in males is to take 1mg per KG of body weight daily has proven successful in clinical tests.
Tablets taken 2-3 times daily after meals ensure an optimal absorption of the substance. Those prone to gastrointestinal pain when taking Anavar are advised to take the tablets one to two hours after a meal or switching to another compound.
Anavar, with it very slight toxicity and few side effects is used by many athletes over a prolonged period of time. If taken for several months continuously, this steroid as it is 17-alpha alkylated can become liver toxic.
Anavar is an all-purpose versatile steroid. Even women who react adversely to anabolic steroids achieve good results with Anavar/Primobolan Tabs and/or Clenbuterol, and can avoid the usual virilization symptoms.
Women, however are advised not to take more than 2-3 tablets daily. This helps avoid androgenic side effects such as acne, deep voice or increased growth of body hair.
