Although far from being the strongest steroid (in terms of anabolic effects) out there, Anavar is no doubt the safest to use. In fact, this drug is commonly used in children for the treatment of various diseases. There are even little use of ancillary drugs to take Anavar. This steroid does not aromatize, and estrogenic side effects are virtually nonexistent. Androgenic side effects of oxandrolone are so light that is used to treat medical conditions in women. This is why Anavar is very popular among female athletes. Most importantly, Anavar has very limited effects on HPTA (hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis), meaning that it will not stop the natural production of testosterone, unless used for a long period. Of course, one can not expect large mass gains with this drug, but this is still a decent anabolic steroid and especially beginners will find very useful. Advanced bodybuilders stack Anavar with variety of other steroids, that of which boldenone, Primobolan and testosterone propionate are probably the most common options.
