Not shortly after Roger Maris record was broken, another baseball player, Jason Giambi and various other athletes were either suspected of, or proven to have, taken anabolic steroids. Again, Congress convened a hearing, and just as they did the first time in 1990, they did not determine that steroids were a danger, but rather that the danger was more in protecting professional sports organizations. The updated statute has been updated to proscribe pro-hormones also The definition of an anabolic steroid as defined currently in the United States under (41)(A) is that "anabolic steroid" means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens , progestins, corticosteroids, and dehydroepiandrosterone (7).
Anavar is no longer manufactured by legitimate pharmacies, so no matter what anyone tells you about this or that brand being “pharm grade”, all anavar is being manufactured by underground labs and the typical dosage is 10 mgs a pill – far greater than the original intended dosing. Then again, how can you ever be sure what the exact dosage is? Different underground labs may use their own title for the drug, but most simply call it, not by its chemical name “Oxandrolone”, but by the original brand name of “Anavar.”
Like any other anabolic steroid, using a supplement like Anavar will suppress natural production of testosterone. Be aware that Anavar is one of the mildest supplements for reducing testosterone production. Exogenous testosterone as a part of your supplement plan can help keep your natural testosterone production on track. If you do not do this, then you can have low testosterone , resulting in things like fatigue, lethargy, decreased muscle mass, and more. Some of this will require you figuring out what works for you. Since each and every physiology is so different, there may be a trial period where you work out any testosterone issues with your doctor. Be aware that once all artificial testosterone put into your body by you is gone, natural testosterone levels will resume as normal. Also be aware that you can damage the natural production of testosterone in your body by overdosing on anabolic steroids. It is often suggested that you should include a SERM and HCG with a PCT for best results.
