Another reason Var is popular among bodybuilders is its reputation of not negatively impacting the liver. Again, this is with normal, recommended doses. When bodybuilders up the dose they take, then they also increase the potential for negative side effects, including liver damage.
Despite its relatively benign impact when used responsibly, Var can certainly damage the liver if an individual takes too much at one time or over a period of time. Var is a 17 alpha alkylate which means it doesn’t breakdown in the liver. Taking too much of this steroid creates a strain on the liver and can result in liver damage.
