Understanding what each is and how it works is important in order to optimize results.
Anavar is a synthetic brand-name anabolic androgenic steroid that mimics the effects of testosterone.
Creatine is naturally produced in the body as a result of metabolic processes. It’s a component of energy production. It’s also available as a nutritional supplement.
Anavar and creatine have a synergistic effect, which means they are more powerful when used together for muscle growth or fat loss.

Anavar is a prescription-only synthetic anabolic androgenic steroid that because of its similarity to testosterone is often used by bodybuilders to:
Creatine is a dietary or nutritional supplement that also may prove effective in reducing catabolism.
Creatine is effective in increasing strength, endurance, and promoting longer workouts which in turn benefit the development of lean muscle mass without water retention; a common side effect of anabolic androgenic steroid use.
Dosages and combinations of these components into a cycle or stack may differ depending on individual preferences and desired results.
Anavar and creatine gains and overall results can depend on a number of factors including:
Anavar’s main mechanism of action or function is to trigger androgen receptors in the body.
Androgens are male hormones that are responsible for development and maintenance of secondary male sex characteristics.
While combining Anavar and creatine, and other supplements may sound like a good idea because they can produce beneficial aspects of health and wellness, putting too much of something into the body can have detrimental effects.
This applies not only to anabolic androgenic steroids, but over-the-counter supplements as well.
Even in low doses, steroids can cause a number of negative side effects in men and women.
Anavar gains will naturally depend on individual case scenarios as well as dosage. Gains for men and women will differ.
Most anabolic androgenic steroids can have a negative impact on a number of hormonal and metabolic balances in the male body and can contribute to:
Women should use caution with any anabolic androgenic steroid, including Anavar, even though it is known as a relatively gentle or mild anabolic androgenic steroid.
Anavar can contribute to conversion from testosterone into estrogen (aromatization). In females, Anavar may cause virilization or masculine type side effects that include:
Even over-the-counter supplements such as creatine can cause a number of side effects. Putting something into the body that it doesn’t need, including any form of synthetic testosterone and nutritional supplements, can backfire.
Creatine is naturally produced in the body. It converts into creatine phosphate by otherwise normal body functions.
Creatine phosphate is used in manufacturing adenosine triphosphate or ATP, part of the energy production cycle and more specifically, responsible for muscle contraction.
Too much creatine in the body can contribute to:
Creatine can negatively interact with or interfere with a number of prescription as well as over-the-counter medications or medical conditions that include:
This is not to say that everyone will experience negative side effects when combining Anavar with creatine, or other substances together.
Before combining drugs with supplements, know how they impact the body separately.
Bodybuilders promote Anavar stacked with creatine to not only boost results, but to increase levels of creatine which in turn can increase synthesis of proteins. Proteins serve as the building block of muscle.
Dosages of Anavar and creatine, or other substances in a stack are based on personal preferences and desired results.
Compare medical recommendations in regard to dosage with those suggested by bodybuilders on any number of bodybuilding websites or in forum discussions.
Start at low dosage of Anavar and creatine combinations to see how your body reacts to it. Watch for side effects, and when looking for benefits, always consider safety.
