Anavar is a Dihydrotestosterone derivative , which prevents it from interacting with the aromatase enzyme, which is the enzyme responsible for the conversion of androgens into Estrogen.

Due to Anavar’s anabolic rating of 322 – 630 (the strength of at least 3 times that of Testosterone ), it can and will also elicit dramatic strength gains and considerable lean mass addition.
