Oxandrolone for fat burning
The main therapeutic effect of the drug is to increase muscle relaxation and stiffness. Muscle building and fat burning are considered indicators of side effects. The study on the effects of fat burning as a result of taking the drug was carried out by the manufacturer Anavaru and was attended by men over the age of 60 who did not undergo strength training.
At a daily dose of 20 mg, adipose tissue loss after week 12 was 1.8 kg, with only 17% of fat lost recovering after 3 months of treatment interruption. The study found that increased fat burning increases insulin sensitivity, which means that the body can respond to a lack of this hormone in the blood in response to the absorption of food substrates and reduces the risk of converting glucose to fat.
Oxandrolone side effects
Although oxandrolone is an alpha-17-alkylated steroid, its liver toxicity is negligible. Studies have shown that anavar at a dose of 20 mg daily for 12 weeks has no effect on liver enzyme levels (rate of liver destruction).   The first signs of liver damage are pain in the right hypochondria, light stools and dark-colored urine.
The effect of the drug on testosterone levels
At moderate doses, oxandrolone has no significant effect on self-testosterone production (it does not inhibit the hypothalamic-pituitary-seminal axis by a feedback mechanism). When the dose of Anavar is high, the body responds by reducing gonadotropin production, believing that endogenous testosterone levels are too high. Lack of Leydig cell stimulation leads to testicular atrophy. Oxandrolone, taken at a dose of 80 mg daily, suppresses testosterone levels by 67% after 12 weeks of use.
Inhibition of testosterone production is manifested by decreased libido and slow erection. This side effect of oxandrolone can be eliminated by adding gonadotropins to the course or by taking courses in combination with androgenic drugs.
There are sometimes side effects of Anavar such as loss of appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, headaches, increase in blood pressure and more.
In general, the side effects of oxandrolone are relatively rare, Anavar is one of the safest steroids.
