Common uses and directions for Anavar, oxandrolone
Oxandrolone has often been used as a growth-promoting agent in the therapy of boys with growth delays in adolescence. Oxandrolone is also used in treating girls affected with Turner's syndrome, another growth-delay ailment. In obese individuals, oral oxandrolone has been shown to decrease subcutaneous abdominal fat more than Testosterone enanthate or weight loss alone, and it also tended to produce favorable changes in visceral fat.
Athletes like oxandrolone for three reasons. First, oxandrolone causes a strong strength gain by stimulating the phosphocreatine synthesis in the muscle cell without depositing water in the joints and the muscles.
