Some of the most important traits and functions of Anavar revolve around its ability to inhibit glucocorticoid hormones, increase the retention of nitrogen in the muscle and decrease sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG). Glucocorticoid hormones are muscle wasting hormones that destroy not only lean muscle tissue but also promote fat gain. Increased nitrogen levels promote an anabolic atmosphere whereas reduced levels often lead to a catabolic state. The decrease in SHBG will promote higher levels of free testosterone in the body, providing a free state of anabolic steroids. This means the steroids being used become more effective.
Effects of steroid withdrawal are known to emulate and kick start many other medical complications as well. Weakness, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea (further resulting in liquid and electrolyte complications), as well as abdominal pain are some of the most common effects that steroid withdrawal is often associated with. Constant decrease in blood pressure which simultaneously causes a person to faint or causes fits and dizziness are other complications the steroid use can cause.
Blood sugar levels are known to have dropped in many people who consume steroids. In women, menstrual changes have been reported widely. Muscle and joint pains, fever, changes in mentality, as well as elevation in calcium levels have been reported in some cases. Gastrointestinal contractions decrease dramatically which may ultimately lead to the swelling of the intestine .
Hey, great list!
I don’t use them personally, but I train with a few women who do. I’ve noticed some of the side effects and they’ve mentioned it too.
But I didn’t know what to look for and how many alternatives there were – so while I’ll probably still choose not to use any (my goals are just to stay active), I’ll pass this along to my friends who want different results than I do. Maybe it’ll help them make some good choices, or to switch to something with fewer (or no) side effects.
