Oxandrolone is another derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), although this anabolic steroid has nothing to do with the “parent” of this anabolic steroid. Thus, oxandrolone does not show any androgenic activity at all, it is not an antiestrogen, it does not contribute to the development of acne, excessive hair growth on the body and hair loss on the head. It doesn’t even increase aggression.
properties of the drug
But Oxandrolone has two absolutely remarkable properties. First, it is able to dramatically increase creatine phosphate synthesis by muscle fibers, which can lead to a fairly good increase in strength with virtually no weight gain. And second, oxandrolone is the most potent anti-catabolic agent of all androgens and anabolic steroids (AAS), inhibiting cortisol synthesis and secretion.
The latter property makes oxandrolone almost mandatory for use during “post-cycle therapy” (PCT), when cortisol levels are usually markedly elevated. In addition, it is not wrong to regularly include Oxandrolone in a “bulk course”. Finally, oxandrolone will be useful in “drying”: firstly, it significantly accelerates lipolysis, especially in the abdominal area, and secondly, it helps to remove excess water from the body.
Recommendations for PCT after the Oxandrolone course
Despite the mild effect of oxandrolone on the body, according to reviews, it still comes with a slight underestimation of testosterone production. To avoid possible side effects, you must start taking Clomid at the end of the course – on the 3rd day after taking the last steroid tablet. The first 7 days are taken 2 tablets, the next 7 days – 1 table.
