Like many people youâ€™ve considered supplementing with anabolic steroids but like many youâ€™re scared to death; after all, the horror stories you hear are just that, horrific. Letâ€™s be clear, all anabolic steroids do have possible side-effects that can manifest themselves but they are often highly exaggerated and generally avoidable when used responsibly by healthy adults; especially healthy adult men. Moreover, while side-effects do in-fact exist and even though they are by no means guaranteed, understand, all medications, steroidal and non-steroidal alike carry with them possible negative side-effects; especially when abused. All of this should be fairly easy to understand but one of the most common questions is â€śwhatâ€™s the safest steroid I can use?â€ť The answer is simple; Oxandrolone.
Oxandrolone is by far the safest anabolic steroid on the market, so safe that the advent of negative side-effects is almost non-existent. Unlike many steroids Oxandrolone does not aromatize, meaning, water retention, Gynecomastia and other estrogenic related side-effects are of little concern. Further, as most anabolic steroids will severely suppress natural testosterone production, while Oxandrolone will too it will only do so to a slight degree. More importantly, as an oral steroid Oxandrolone is very mild on the liver; this is of special importance because most 17-aa steroids, which it is, are very hepatotoxic but Anavar, as Oxandrolone is commonly known causes very little even in higher doses. In-fact, the liver enzymes of an individual who supplements with the steroid will more often than not find their liver values to remain the same or so close that the increase is negligible.
Although extraordinarily safe there is one serious drawback for the male anabolic steroid user and that is simply this anabolics very mild nature. When trying to bulk and build new lean muscle tissue, for a man Oxandrolone is a pretty pathetic choice in comparison to just about every other anabolic androgenic steroid on the market. However, make no mistake, it will add lean tissue and for many perhaps all they want; we are simply speaking in relative terms as compared to other anabolic steroids. If you have any understanding of anabolic androgenic steroids you understand there is a very real risk to reward ratio set up around all aspects of this type of supplemental use. For example, the higher the doses the greater the benefit but the higher the doses the greater the risks; this not only applies to dosing but to the power and strength of many steroids as well. For example, the milder the steroid the safer it will be to use in-terms of side-effects but the more powerful the steroid often the more apt towards negative side-effects it will be; consider Oxymetholone, like Oxandrolone it is a 17-aa oral steroid but immensely more powerful and highly more susceptible to negative side-effects.
While it is not the best bulking steroid for men it can serve a fine purpose in cutting/dieting and aiding in giving athletic performance a little bit of a bump. By its nature due to its properties Oxandrolone will increase strength and is well-suited for preserving muscle tissue while on a caloric restricted diet. Unfortunately, Oxandrolone is very expensive, much more so than most anabolic steroids and all-in-all there are other choices most men will make as on a milligram potency to dollars basis itâ€™s not the best investment in the world.
The Perfect Steroid
While thereâ€™s no argument that can say this is the perfect steroid for men, conversely, when speaking of the female athlete if there was ever a perfect steroid for her it is without a doubt Oxandrolone. While only mildly anabolic, very mildly, it doesnâ€™t take a strong anabolic effect for a woman to see massive changes and results. Further and this is where it really begins to shine for the female athlete; while most anabolic steroids cause serious virilization effects in women, Oxandrin, as it is sometimes known rarely shows any such effects in the female user when used responsibly. Responsible female use will normally fall in the 10mg to 20mg per day dosage and generally extend for 6-8 weeks of use before a break is needed.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is simple; in Oxandrolone we have a very mild anabolic, one that is generally side-effect free and well-suited for the female athlete. However, there is a very important note that must not be overlooked; Oxandrolone is one of the most commonly counterfeited steroids on the market. While fake Oxandrolone is very common so is severely under-dosed; so much so that unless youâ€™re purchasing human grade form the odds in receiving a quality product are slim to none.
