ANAVAR – OXYANDROLONE

Individual athlete Megan Benzik was banned for 4 years after testing positive for Anavar earlier this year. She competed in the South Regional. 

Anavar is one of the most popular oral anabolic steroids of all time. First produced in 1964, Anavar was the brand name for oxandrolone. Anavar taken in the high doses required to build lean muscle can lead to the natural suppression of testosterone production, liver damage, heart attacks and strokes.
