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. 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 that Oxandralone enhanced body fat reduction significantly in both the abdominal and visceral stores. Oxandrolone will not aromatize, and therefore the anabolic effect of this compound can actually promote linear growth.
