Anavar (oxandrolone) is one of the most popular steroids in the world right now due to its mild nature and low toxicity, resulting in less side effects for the user.
As a result, there’s a huge demand for this cutting steroid, which drastically reduces body fat and increases strength levels simultaneously.
Anavar was created in the 1960s, with it’s purpose back then to help patients suffering from muscle-wasting diseases; as it increases LBM (lean body mass). Thus it wasn’t originally designed for bodybuilders.
BUT due to its anabolic nature, it wasn’t long before it became popular with athletes and bodybuilders who used this steroid to improve their performance; increasing their strength, reducing their body fat % and building new muscle tissue.
Anavar works in the same way as most cutting steroids; by helping users burn fat and simultaneously retaining muscle tissue.
There’s still some debate as to how much muscle you can gain on an anavar cycle. Some users gain muscle, others at the very least keep their muscle; making anavar perfect during cutting phases.
A bodybuilder might run var for 8 weeks before competing on stage, to help get them shredded. Or casual weight lifters might purchase it in the summer months, simply to look good on the beach.
Although anavar is definitely one of the safest steroids out there, it can’t be labelled ‘completely safe’. All AAS come with potential risks and side effects.
Most users buy anavar in oral form (tablets) due to there being less hassle, in comparison to using needles and having to administer regular injections.
Is it illegal?
This depends on where you live, as laws are different for each country.
If you’re based in the US or UK, and you buy anavar (or any other steroids) it’s illegal. This also includes selling it or using for personal means, unless you have a doctor’s prescription.
In the U.S, if caught in possession of anavar you can end up in prison for 1 year AND paying a $1,000 fine (1).
In the UK, anavar is a class C drug, meaning if you’re caught selling it – you can receive a 14 year prison sentence (2).
Don’t despair if you live in a country where anavar is illegal; because there’s an anavar alternative you can buy online, called anvarol.
Anvarol mimics the same effects as anavar in the body and is 100% legal.
In terms of anavar being illegal to buy in the US, UK, Canada etc…these laws are replicated in most countries across the world, making it ALMOST illegal to purchase worldwide. I say ‘almost’ because:
Buying/using steroids is NOT an offence in Thailand or Mexico, thus it’s 100% legal to buy var in these countries.
In Thailand or Mexico you can simply walk into a pharmacy or drug store and buy anavar (that’s 100% real), without a prescription.
For Sale on the Black Market
Although it’s illegal, people still buy anavar on the ‘black market’.
However, not many company’s manufacture REAL oxandrolone because it’s difficult to make. Because of this and so many people wanting to buy it, the price of var is very high.
A 4 week anavar cycle can cost you $400 (3).
Some people will either buy anavar online or from someone they know in their local bodybuilding gym.
The trouble with buying drugs on the black market is that you don’t know what’s in them, compared to getting the real deal from a doctor. There’s even more risk with anavar (in comparison to other steroids) on the black market, because it’s rare and thus there’s an opportunity for scammers to make a quick buck. As a result, there’s a lot of fake anavar being sold these days.
As a rule of thumb, if someone is selling you “real” var and it doesn’t cost a bomb, it’s almost certainly not the real deal.
Even if the tablets may look the same, they can be filled with weak ingredients inside or the dose may be cut. For example, a dealer might say “this is 50mg of anavar”, where actually it’s only 10mg. So in this example, he’s just multiplied his profits by 5x, whilst leaving a burning hole in your wallet.
Who are you going to report him to? That’s right, no one. Because you’re committing an offence yourself by purchasing illegal anavar on the black market.
If you REALLY want to buy anavar on the black market, make sure you know where it’s coming from. In other words make sure the supplier is LEGIT.
In order to do this, ask friends, talk to local bodybuilders, build relationships with people who know a legitimate distributor. For lots of people reading this, this shouldn’t be too much effort, especially if you belong to a bodybuilding gym (where most of the guys there are on roids).
Buying anavar on the internet is particularly risky, because of its legal status.
…That is unless it’s from a highly vetted and trusted source.
For example, anvarol is a legal alternative, which lists its ingredients and is FDA approved. Thus it’s 100% safe. However, if you’re buying ILLEGAL anavar online, how do you know the website isn’t secretly set up by the police to catch criminals? You don’t.
Also when buying online, the person who’s supposedly “selling anavar” is a criminal himself. So it wouldn’t be too uncharacteristic for a criminal to NOT send your 2 bottles of var, after paying him online.
Some people do buy anavar online, but they are risking getting caught by the police or getting scammed.
Quality Grade (10mg or 50mg?)
If you’ve decided you’re going to take var, you need to know what you’re actually buying. As we discussed in the previous chapter, the price of anavar is an early indication as to whether you’re getting REAL anavar. If it’s expensive this is a good sign it’s anavar (but not guaranteed).
Anavar usually comes in 10mg or 50mg tablets. In terms of dosing, bodybuilders take anything between 50-100mg per day, with higher doses taken by more experienced users.
Should you buy 10mg tablets or 50mg tablets?
If you only want to take 30mg a day, you’d buy anavar in 10mg tablets. However, if you want to take 50mg a day, there’s often debate as to which tablets you should buy, as there can be quality fluctuations.
For example, there’s a common conception that 50mg pills are less potent and contain less var per mg, compared to 10mg pills.
Thus if you want to get the most bang for your buck (and don’t mind swallowing a few more pills every day), it could be a shrewd investment to buy 10mg pills.
This rule can be applied to buying other steroids on the black market. So, don’t think a higher dose is always better.
It’s like when people buy a cheap 5kg tub of protein for $35. They think they’re getting a great deal by getting 100 protein servings for $0.35 each, but they’re actually getting ripped off; because these cheap supplements often contain crappy fillers, diluting the quality of the ingredients.
There are many benefits users experience whilst taking anavar, here are some of the most common effects:
Increase In Strength – Many users report increases in strength, even when in a deficit of calories. It’s standard to add 10-20kg to your bench press and squat midway through a cycle.
Muscle Increases – Natural athletes who diet down for a bodybuilding show will lose strength and muscle, whereas ‘assisted’ athletes (on var) might even gain muscle. How much muscle you’ll gain depends on genetics, the dose, diet and training. However, even in a worst case scenario, you’ll keep your muscle when cutting on var.
Fat Reduction – Var not only preserves muscle during a cutting phase, but also burns significant amounts of fat, by lowering cortisol levels and regulating insulin. Imbalances in these 2 hormones can cause fat storage. Get these 2 balances right and your body will slowly turn into a fat burning furnace.
Improved Performance & Recovery – Taking var will allow users to train harder and for longer, as they become more oxygen efficient and have a greater capacity to deal with physical stress. Users will also recover quicker in between sessions, enabling a bodybuilder to train more frequently, compared to a natural athlete.
Muscle Vascularity – Anavar is one of the best steroids you can take to get ripped, and that doesn’t just mean low in body fat. It fills the muscles with glycogen, making them full. This combined with low body fat results in a noticeable increase in vascularity. Get ready to turn into a human road map, with bulging bicep veins and wriggly-looking worms everywhere.
This increase in muscle glycogen also leads to big pumps in the gym, which can even last after your workout. This is a great benefit to have whilst cutting, where natural bodybuilders in comparison, become glycogen depleted – with their muscles shrinking on lower calories.
Liver Toxicity – If anavar’s taken in tablet form (which many users do), it must pass through the liver. Even though it’s labelled a ‘mild steroid’ you still need to be very careful, as it’s a banned substance for a reason. To mitigate potential liver damage you can invest in some liver support supplements, such as milk thistle, which has proven to protect the liver when under stress (4).
Altered Natural Testosterone – when you increase testosterone past normal levels i.e. by consuming anabolic steroids, your natural testosterone takes a dive; as the body recognizes that there’s too much and thus shuts down production. This can be problematic when users stop taking steroids, often leading to depression, mood swings, fatigue and lowered libido.
Hair Loss – Anabolic steroids have the potential to speed up the hair loss process, especially if you’re already genetically predetermined to go bald.
Other side effects may include:
- Heart failure
- Other hormonal imbalances
Anvarol is a legal steroid, manufactured by a company called Crazy Bulk.
It’s the legal alternative to anavar, designed to mimic the positive effects of oxandrolone – but without the negative side effects.
Crazy Bulk has received a lot of positive reviews on social media, which can be seen here.
Anvarol Before & After
Anvarol’s benefits are the same as anavar’s, but anvarol will not compromise your health. Anvarol is not toxic to the liver, won’t cause any hair loss and will keep your natural testosterone production in check.
Whether anvarol is as effective as anavar is up for debate, as there hasn’t been any studies comparing the 2 compounds. However, there have been some impressive transformations from Crazy Bulk customers using anvarol.
Note: Some customers who had good results stacked anvarol with other cutting agents in Crazy Bulk’s cutting stack.

Anvarol is also considerably cheaper than anavar, so you might get more gains in relation to the cost of your cycle.
If you choose to buy anavar illegally, hopefully this article has improved your knowledge of what to look out for, ensuring your safety and increasing the chances of you getting real var (instead of a placebo or another dangerous substance).
