Oxandrolone is the chemical name of Anavar, a popular anabolic mild androgenic drug. In 1960s Searle Laboratories developed the steroid to develop and regrow the muscles in patients who lost due to diseases such as HIV/AIDS, burning victims, chronic infection etc. Due to some official issues, the laboratory stopped producing Anavar. That was a fine chance to its competitors and started to produce the oral methylated steroid Anavar. Bodybuilders, athletes experienced increased strength, dissolved body fat and hardened physique. The drug has been still successful among the professionals. Since it is fairly popular, there are lots of chances for the availability of counterfeit products in the market.
