Oxandrolone is a mild, low androgen 17-alpha alkylated anabolic steroid with very low toxicity.
It promotes protein anabolism and has a low incidence of adverse reactions. Â Oxandrolone is primarily used to promote strength, muscle hardness and quality physique improvement. In the International Journal of Obesity, (1995; 19: 614-624), it was shown thatÂ Oxandralone enhanced bodyfat reduction significantly in both the abdominal and visceral stores.Â Oxandrolone will not Â aromatize, and therefore the anabolic effect of this compound can actually promoteÂ linear growth.
Oxandrolone is also prescribed for the treatment of osteoporosis.
