Oxandrolone does not aromatize in any dosage. It is known that a certain amount of the testosterone present in the body is converted into estrogen. Oxandrolone is one of the few steroids, which cannot aromatize to estrogen. So with Oxandrolone the muscle system does not get the typical watery appearance as with many other steroids, thus making it very interesting during the preparation for a competition. At this point it is very important to keep the estrogen level as low as possible since estrogen makes the body to store water even if the diet is calorie-reduced. It is important to know that Oxandrolone even in a very high dosage does not influence the body’s own testosterone production. In other words: Oxandrolone does not suppress the body’s own hormone production. This is due to the fact that it does not have a bad feedback on the hypothalamohypophysial testicular axis, thus when taking Oxandrolone. unlike other anabolic steroids, the testes signal the hypothalamus not to reduce or to stop the release of GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) and LHRH Luteinizing hormone releasing hormone). This special feature of Oxandrolone can be explained by the fact that the substance is not converted into estrogen. Oxandrolone is popular among bodybuilders because of its fabulous effects.
