Anavar becomes active very quickly, this rapid activity time is largely due to its very short half-life which is approximately 9 hours. Because the half-life of Anavar is so short daily administration of the medication is necessarily frequent with twice daily ingestion of the medication being optimal. You could easily administer the medication only once per day and still receive the benefits of Anavar, however, if we are to keep blood levels stable twice per day will be more efficient. For lower end doses, especially for females once per day will prove to be sufficient.
You will not produce a vast amount of lean muscle tissue through its use when speaking of performance enhancing purposes; however, what is produced will be solid muscle tissue. The greatest benefits associated with this particular steroid lie within muscle preservation and metabolic activity. This means Anavar has the ability to aid in reducing body-fat while preserving muscle tissue on a calorie restricted diet. Because of this it is commonly used by physique athletes during their competition preparation.
It is important to keep in mind side-effects are only possible, they are by no means guaranteed or assured and are largely avoidable when used responsibly. However, negative side-effects can occur when steroids are abused and even in some who are sensitive even though they use responsibly they may fall prey to negative outcomes; the same can be said of Aspirin. While many anabolic steroids carry vast possible negative side-effects such as estrogenic related due to aromatization, Anavar does not possess these traits. Anavar does not aromatize making common side-effects such as Gynecomastia little to no concern; Further, as most steroids are very suppressive to natural testosterone production Anavar is very mild in this regard, so mild that one could take Anavar and still produce some natural testosterone. However, some suppression will still exist and the extent will largely be dose dependent.
