However, the Anavar steroid was discontinued by Searle in 1989, due to the bad press brought on by bodybuilders abusing the drug. It was later reintroduced to the world market as Oxandrin in 1995, but it remains a controlled substance under US law. The current manufacturer of oxandrolone holds all the rights to their medicine, and that’s why it is very rare to find oxandrolone today. It’s still called Anavar by most people, and it’s very hard to buy. Even if you do find Anavar for sale, the law of supply and demand inevitably results in a rather exorbitant price for the steroid.
Anavar is a Dihydrotestosterone derivative , which prevents it from interacting with the aromatase enzyme, which is the enzyme responsible for the conversion of androgens into Estrogen. As a result, one can expect very solid lean muscle gains without any water retention, and minimal fat gain/retention (provided the user has accompanied their cycle with an appropriate diet). Due to Anavar’s anabolic rating of 322 – 630 (the strength of at least 3 times that of Testosterone ), it can and will also elicit dramatic strength gains and considerable lean mass addition.
