Anavar is very popular among athletes for the great results it provides and the few side effects it has. Even though it is a mild steroid, oxandrolone helps to build very high quality muscle mass, without water retention. It barely has any androgenic activity, and it has a low level of toxicity. Particularly, the lack of androgenic effects, together with the muscularity it provides, made it a bestseller among male and female athletes. However, when using anavar one should never forget that it’s still a steroid, and safety precautions must be taken.
