So you've made the choice to start taking Anavar (oxandrolone), but where can you buy it from?
There are 2 paths you can take when trying to purchase anavar:
- The black market (illegal)
- Buy a legal alternative to Anavar online
Or if you happen to be best friends with your local doctor, he might just prescribe you a cycle or two for Christmas. As you can imagine, this is extremely unlikely to happen.
The Black Market
Anavar is illegal in almost every country in the world, bar Thailand & Mexico. So, if you don't live in either of these countries and you want to buy anavar – you'll have to do some dodgy dealings via the black market.
Which in real life terms, means finding someone who sells oxandrolone down your local gym. The problem is – when you buy anavar illegally you're putting complete faith in someone who is doing something illegal.
Thus it's pretty common for people to get scammed when trying to buy anavar. Also anavar's pretty rare, making it expensive on the black market. As a result, the risk is even higher when trying to obtain this steroid as dealers often cut the dose without you knowing, or sell you fillers to increase their profit margins.
So if you want to buy anavar from the black market, the key is to get a good, reliable supplier (which is difficult to come by). However, this method is not only breaking the law but putting your health in danger. Unethical suppliers have been the cause of users experiencing terrible side effects, by selling substances which weren't steroids.
These days you can buy legal steroid alternatives online, with manufacturers claiming to recreate the effects of anabolic steroids; but with little to no side effects.
Whether you'll get exactly the same gains as illegal substances is debatable; but going by some of the testimonials online – people seem to be experiencing pretty impressive transformations from using legal steroids.
Crazy Bulk manufacture a ‘legal steroid' called Anvarol which is recommended for those looking to burn fat and get ripped. Anvarol, like anavar, is also suitable for women to use; especially if they're wanting to lose weight and increase muscle tone without any negative side effects.
For those who don't know, the main two attributes of anavar is to burn fat and increase strength. Significant increases in strength can also help in sparing muscle tissue when cutting (on low calories).
Crazy Bulk customers (below) verify this is exactly what they experienced after taking Anvarol:
Anavarol Before/After Photos
I've pulled these comments and before/after pics from the Crazy Bulk website.
Note: Some of these guys have used anvarol with other legal cutting steroids in a stack for better results.
These other cutting compounds are:
Anavar is typically very expensive to purchase, because it's one of the most coveted AAS on the black market. The reason it's so popular is because it's a very mild steroid, meaning side effects are a lot less compared to other steroids. This makes it even more appealing among beginners and women.
60 x 10mg tablets can cost $150.
Bodybuilders usually take 50-80mg of anavar per day and run it for 6-8 weeks.
So, if you're a newbie and you take 50mg of anavar every day for 6 weeks, this can cost over $500.
In comparison, anvarol from Crazy Bulk only costs $54.99 for a cycle (much better value).
Anavar's side effects are very mild compared to other fat-burning steroids such as winstrol or trenbolone.
However, anavar is still classed as a schedule III controlled substance, and thus it's likely you'll experience some adverse effects.
Here are the most common side effects users experience on anavar:
- Thinning of the hair
- Raised LDL cholesterol levels
- Increased blood pressure
- Deceased testosterone levels (post-cycle)
- Toxic to the liver
These are common side effects when taking any steroid, however they're likely to be less severe whilst taking anavar. If you don't want to experience any of the above, you can purchase anvarol, which doesn't cause any ill-effects and is approved as safe by the FDA.
Where to Buy Anavar? VERDICT
My advice is to always abide by the law.
Thus if you live in Thailand, you're free to buy anavar legally. However, people in these countries need to be particularly careful not to abuse AAS.
If you're situated in the UK, US or other countries where anavar's illegal – you need to very careful. People DO get sent to prison for taking steroids and if you're doing dealings in the black market you're running the risk of going to jail and paying a hefty fine.
Buying black market items doesn't mean sneaking out of your room at 3am and meeting a weird stranger in a dodgy alleyway; it can mean buying some gear off that friendly-looking guy who goes down your gym.
My advice would be to first buy legal anavar alternatives i.e. Anvarol from Crazy Bulk; and see if you experience the results you're looking for. If you do, you'll be making exceptional gains in a legal and a cost effective way.
Note: Crazy Bulk are a very honest and reputable company so if you have any questions about their products be sure to contact them or follow them on twitter. They also offer a buy 2 get 1 free deal on anvarol, making it a lot cheaper to purchase compared to oxandrolone.
