Other Names: Nandrolone, Nandrolone Decanoate, Nortestosterone Decanoate, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, Deca-Nandrobolin 250, Retabolil.
Deca-Durabolin is the brand name and brand name of the anabolic steroid Nandrolone. Specifically, Deca-Durabolin is the trade name Nandrolone Decanoate, which is different from the Nandrolone Decanoate ester.
“Deca” is the official name of the drug in the bodybuilding world, one of the top three most popular anabolic steroids, and the second most popular and widely used anabolic steroid in the world. The first is none other than Dianabol (Methandrostenolone), the third is Winstrol (Stanozolol). There is good reason why Deca-Durabolin is so popular with bodybuilders and athletes, and it is well received by health professionals.
Nandrolone Decanoate was one of the first anabolic steroids, introduced to the research team in 1960 and released in pharmacies several years after 1962 under the name Deca- Durabolin. The product is made of Organon.
At the time, few people knew that Nandrolone was available in 1957 as a rapid ester modification – Nandrolone phenylpropionate, which has been very effective. But because of its short life span (one injection per day), it has a limited function. As a result, Nandrolone have been shown to stimulate Deca-Durabolin with a decanoate ester link. For this reason, Nandrolone Decanoate has a half-life of 15 days, while Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has a half-life of 4 days.
Over time, the drug began to be used in hospitals as a medicine, and it has become popular among athletes, thanks to the “smart”. There is truth in this, but there are only myths and misconceptions, which we will discuss below.
The anabolic ratio of testosterone is 100 while Deca 125 means that Deca is slightly stronger than testosterone. However, Deca has a low androgenic index of 37, which is beneficial for people with allergies to androgenic effects. In addition, nandrolone also have less estrogenic activity and bind binding to the enzyme aromatase, which triggers the conversion of androgens into estrogen. Compared to testosterone, about 20% of nandrolone is converted to estrogen, and this is due to deca progestin (like all 19-nortestosterone drugs).
Deca is called 19-nortestosterone compound, due to the lack of carbon monoxide 19 (which contains testosterone), which produces progestin. This may indicate some side effects and side effects of 19-nortestosterone and are not seen in other anabolic steroids.
Here we must pay special attention to what is known as Deca-Durabolin is good for bones and bones, and this is true. However, the clear descriptions of athletes and bodybuilders explain why this remains a myth and a myth. Deca “does not use fat burners”, “does not absorb water from muscles and bones” or anything else. Nandrolone also show an extremely lower tendency for collagen synthesis, especially for other anabolic steroids. Deca also helps to increase bone density.
What does all of this mean for athletes? This means that bodybuilders and athletes can benefit from the joints, which strengthen them during muscle growth, strength, and growth. This allows them to carry heavy loads and to improve bone and nerve healing, as well as to work better on joint joints that are the result of stretching.
As mentioned earlier, Deca is often referred to as a “mild” anabolic steroid when compared to other compounds when it comes to side effects. Unfortunately, it is a mixture of fact and fiction that needs to be considered, and many claims “deca is a mild steroid” go back to a time when little was known about this drug. In both cases, Deca-Durabolin is a soft and hard anabolic steroid with both properties.
The good news is that Deca-Durabolin has very little affinity for estrogen, making estrogenic side effects less problematic than other anabolic steroids. However, users should understand that estrogenic side effects are not completely eliminated but are more manageable. Symptoms of side effects include nausea, fluid retention, increased blood pressure due to fluid retention, and gynecomastia.
Any problems related to progesterone and prolactin can manifest as swollen nipples, gynecomastia, swelling etc. Antiestrogens and aromatase inhibitors are known to be effective against such effects. For example, Arimidex, under the brand name Anastrozole or Clomid, is known as Clostilbegit. Cabergoline and bromocriptine are also very effective in reducing high prolactin levels and are often the first line for this treatment.
Nandrolone have also been shown to be a sedative for oral C17-alpha-alkylated (C17-aa) steroids and have no liver effects. Deca shows low levels of androgenic effects that still need to be monitored and treated. Unintended side effects of androgens can include increased acne, increased skin thickness, weight gain and increased facial hair, increased risk of male pattern baldness and risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Nandrolone also suppresses chronic testosterone. When used alone, 100 mg of Nandrolone can cause complete elimination of natural anabolic hormones, so it is very important to use Nandrolone in combination with Testosterone Enanthate or Testosterone Cypionate or cheese and testosterone blends. This ensures that there is no risk of chronic testosterone obstructing and suppressing delivery. After completing the course, you should definitely do PCT (recovery after a course of steroids), but don’t forget that it takes time to restore the body to its natural state. If you do not fully understand the basic principles of taking anabolic steroids, you can cause serious harm to the body, which you may not have.
In terms of liver function, Nandrolone is not hepatotoxic.
Cycles and applications
Of course bodybuilders and other athletes use Deca-Durabolin to increase volume, weight and strength. This is partly due to the positive and beneficial effects on the tissues and bones underlying, providing a faster healing rate and protection against injury when heavy weights and physical activity are used.
Because Deca-Durabolin is a long-acting ester of nandrolone (with a half-life of 15 days), a Deca-Durabolin cycle should be at least 12 weeks long. Here it is often combined with long ester analogs such as Testosterone Cypionate. Because of its long -term exposure, most users won’t feel “open” at least for the first few weeks of their cycle. With this time, many people add additional drugs to the Deca-Durabolin cycle for overclocking. It is usually an oral anabolic steroid like Dianabol, Winstrol, Anadrol, Turinabol, etc.
However, to increase volume and strength, many people take drugs that are more effective for this purpose, such as Anadrol (oxymetholone) or Dianabol. (methandrostenolone), in the first 4-6 weeks. These ingredients are used for their bulking properties, which borrow very well from Deca-Durabolin and Testosterone.
The most common cycle combination that is often discussed here – Testosterone / Deca / Dianabol. In short, it’s the most popular loop stack. The combination was promoted and supported by gold medals in the 1960s and 1970s. Recommended for all levels of users (beginners, intermediate and professional) because there are many that improve the quality for every user regardless of their experience.
