When the discussion of anabolic steroids comes up the adverse effects is always a high point of interest; after all, if any item carries with it benefits such benefits are overshadowed if the side-effects are bad. Make no mistake there are adverse effects that can occur and the extent and types will vary from each and every steroid. There is not one set one size fits all list of side-effects for anabolic steroids any more than there is for Aspirin and cough syrup and when it comes to Anavar side-effects we make no exception. While Anavar side-effects are very real there is also a bit of good news and that is they are relatively mild, easy to control and for the strong majority of users of very little concern. When we say “of very little concern” we’re simply inferring that in most cases adverse effects will not exist and in stating this we are only referring to responsible use.
Comprised of the active hormone Oxandrolone a Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) based anabolic steroid Anavar side-effects will unsurprisingly carry with them DHT related concerns. In this case we are referring to hair-loss and acne and there is good news and there is bad news. Hair-loss can occur due to use of this steroid but only in men who were going to go bald in the first place. If you are not genetically predisposed to male pattern baldness the Oxandrolone hormone will not make you hair fall out. Secondly, in many ways when we look at Anavar side-effects we can say the same thing about acne; those genetically sensitive to acne may have problems when this or other DHT related steroids are present in the body. For the strong majority if your product is clean, if you are clean and if you are not naturally predisposed to severe skin conditions you will be fine.
Of the possible Anavar side-effects issues surrounding blood pressure and cholesterol can be two of the most serious but they are also very much dependent on the overall state of your life in general. What this means is quite simple; those who live a healthy lifestyle and who are not genetically predisposed to such conditions despite a healthy lifestyle will not fall prey to blood pressure and cholesterol issues. Live healthy and remain healthy and enjoy the benefits of this anabolic steroid; it truly is that simple. If you already suffer from either condition you should not supplement with this anabolic steroid or any anabolic steroid and for the healthy adult male these will be important aspects to keep an eye on if supplementation is to exist.
You’ve heard of these side-effects, Gynecomastia and water retention; they’re the two most commonly talked about side-effects and you may have noticed this discussion of Anavar side-effects has not included them. The reason is simple, the Oxandrolone hormone does not aromatize and it is the aromatase effect brought on by some steroids that causes these effects. Further, as heavy aromatase can also contribute to blood pressure and cholesterol issues, although these can be issues as we discussed they are less of a concern here simply due to the non-aromatizing nature.
It is a common myth that the Oxandrolone hormone will not suppress natural testosterone production. How this myth came to be is uncertain but it is one that has survived for many years in the performance enhancing community. As an anabolic steroid one of the Anavar side-effects includes natural testosterone suppression; however, it is true the total suppression is much less than some of the more potent anabolic steroids such as say Nandrolone or Trenbolone. Even so suppression will occur and it is for this reason some form of remedy is advised for the male athlete who supplements with the Oxandrolone hormone. For years many have believed that by bridging in-between cycles with the Oxandrolone hormone was an efficient way to preserve gains after a hard cycle while simultaneously replenishing their natural testosterone; this simply isn’t true and it’s a lie you shouldn’t believe.
