The world of using performance enhancing drugs PED is a complex science in which enthusiastic users have it down to a methodical science. It exists in the world of sports from the running athlete to the Olympic and professional athlete. You may be running your city marathon right next to someone who is using a performance enhancing drug and only if you are aware of the side effects and the perceived benefits yourself would you notice that person is using.
Performance enhancing drug use itself is a constant cycle of using, flushing out and covering up. The culture behind steroid usage runs deep and wide, and if you are “willing,” just like doing illegal street or prescription drugs, there is always an enabler.
There’s no such thing as taking a performance enhancing drug without your own knowledge. It’s a poor excuse from an addicted user as a typical response from someone who’s absorbed into the doping lifestyle to someone whom they assume to be “not in the know.”
Reviewing an interview with Marion Jones dethroned Olympic runner title-holder with Oprah in 2009, Jones tells Oprah the supplements she was given to take are flaxseed. Flaxseed is used to recover your LDL/HDL levels. PED’s are known to put your levels way outside the “norm.” Jone’s self-incriminating cover-up gets worse as the interview goes on.
Anavar oral steroid also known as Var, Lipidex, Antitriol, Anatrophill, Protivar, and Oxandrin
Oral steroids are harder for the body to metabolize than steroids that are injected. Liver cells are damaged from using steroids and PED users have twice the amount of the chemicals in their liver and bloodstream than is normally there simply by trying to metabolize the steroid. Anavar is the first steroid made in the sixties to make the first pass of the liver metabolism so its benefits would be more effective. Anavar was also used for promoting lean tissue and bone density in osteoporosis patients or patients who suffered trauma, surgery or disease, before it was taken off the shelves in the eighties by the FDA. Anavar will not destroy your cholesterol levels like most PED’s but it will put your LDL/HDL levels outside the norm.

A steroid cycle
A steroid use cycle works in for eight to ten weeks, and may take a few days to kick in, so a “kick start” cycle 5-6 weeks, another steroid is used so you can see results sooner. It is common to not only be taking one steroid but two for this reason.
Breaking the cycle
After some time the body adapts to the steroid or builds up a tolerance and become less useful, and the effects become less noticeable. The muscle gains and fat loss slow down if the dosage is not increased after 6-7 weeks of usage. Users can stop taking it or increase its dosage to break this level. Because of its action this is where taking Anavar becomes most useful.
