Anavar, also known as oxandrolone, was developed in 1964 by G.D Searle & Co., which is now known as Pfizer after a corporate buyout took place. Its initial development was attributed to Raphael Pappo. This anabolic steroid was primarily designed to treat muscle wasting problems.
Now while the production of Anavar was temporarily discontinued in the early 1980’s due to FDA pressure on steroid compounds that are available in the market, its popularity picked up during the same era because of the rising demand for drugs that can help treat muscle breakdown brought about by HIV and AIDS.
Its manufacture was picked up again by Bio-Technology General CORP (BTG), which is now called Savient, in 1995 under the name Oxandrin. Although Savient held a short-lived monopoly on Anavar in the next few years, a number of pharmaceutical companies based in the United States like Watson helped bring back its cheaper mainstream distribution shortly after.
Deca Durabolin is basically a compound formulated from nandrolone with a large decanoate ester attached to it that offers several performance-enhancing and anabolic benefits when used.
Apart from its ability to significantly boost testosterone levels in the body that resulted to increased lean muscle gains, higher energy levels, optimized protein synthesis, improved recuperation time between trainings, more intense nitrogen retention and longer endurance, what made Deca Durabolin really stand out among its counterparts was the fact that it is extremely long-acting and the risk of experiencing side effects when using it is quite low even in high doses.
Compared to other anabolic androgenic steroids, Deca Durabolin did not trigger the same side effects to the hair, skin, joints and prostate when used properly. This is the reason why it’s become a mainstay in most Dianabol and/or testosterone cycles. It basically helps you maximize the benefits that you’re getting from a cycle without making you vulnerable to side effects even when you up your doses as you go along.
