Nandrolone Decanoate (other names Deca-Durabolin, Deca, Nandrobolin, Retabolil) is produced by a renowned pharmaceutical company Alpha Pharma and available for sale in Australia in vial form 250 mg/ml.
Nandrolone Decanoate is an extremely popular anabolic steroid consisting of the steroid hormone nandrolone and attached to a large ester decanoate.
Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the most commonly used anabolic steroids among performance-enhancing athletes. Its popularity is due to its high anabolic activity with low probability of side-effects. It is well known as an extremely useful steroid for mass use in the off-season, but it is also a favourite in many sporting circles for its therapeutic properties. Its enormous therapeutic benefits make the hormone nandrolone one of the most useful anabolic steroids in medical practice, in the world of professional bodybuilding.
Nandrolone Decanoate effects
Nandrolone Decanoate is a long-time favourite among performance-enhancing athletes.
As an off-season weight gain steroid, Nandrolone Decanoate will provide significant gains in muscle mass, but gains in muscle mass will be slow. It is a large ester-based steroid and it will not be fast-acting. However, the mass gained with this steroid will often be of higher quality than with many anabolic steroids. The use of this anabolic steroid is also well known for increasing metabolic rate.
Many athletes, ballplayers, wrestlers and any athletes who might benefit from therapeutic relief often take Nandrolone Decanoate. These people usually have no desire to build muscle mass, but the relief in itself is invaluable. In addition, this relief can be obtained with a very low dose. A slightly higher dose will bring relief, greatly speed up overall recovery and increase muscle endurance. More importantly, the calming effects of Nandrolone Decanoate are not masking or false.
Then there is the contraction phase, and some lifters and bodybuilders will use Nandrolone Decanoate during this phase of steroid use. Such use will be similar to direct sports enhancement. The person will take a fairly low dose for the relief and muscular endurance it can provide. This can be very welcome during hardcore diets, as a real hardcore bodybuilding diet is brutal for the human body. As an added bonus, Nandrolone Decanoate will significantly preserve human muscle mass that would otherwise be lost during the necessary caloric deficit.
Instructions for a Nandrolone Decanoate cycle
The action of the drug unfolds quite slowly. You should not expect a quick anabolic effect. However, almost all of the gains are retained even after withdrawal of the steroid. The cycle of solo Nandrolone Decanoate is usually long. The weight gain is about half as much as with testosterone. The recommended cycle duration is 8 to 10 weeks. In some cases athletes take it even up to half a year, with a gradual increase in the dosage. Injections are administered no more than once a week in an amount of 200 to 400 or even to 600 milligrams.
In proportion to the increase in the amount injected, the risk of side effects increases. If you do not yet know how to inject nandrolone correctly, it is best to start with the lowest dosages. It is wiser to take 2 light cycles than one heavy cycle. When using the steroid for longer than 8 weeks, you should include gonadotropin (from about 4-5 weeks of the cycle, every 3-4 days at 500 IU). From the second week until 2-3 weeks after withdrawal of Nandrolone, either Bromocriptine or Cabergoline (progesterone suppression) should be used. The hypothalamic-pituitary-g testicular axis is restored by taking Clomiphene, which expands the progesterone receptor population and increases sensitivity. Boosters are good for restoring endogenous testosterone levels: it usually takes about a month to normalise.
Side effects of Nandrolone Decanoate
Approximately one fifth of the injected steroid binds to progestin receptors (due to the absence of a carbon atom at the 19th position) and therefore reactions such as suppression of gonadotropic hormone secretion, increased prolactin production, and a significant decrease in libido are not excluded. A sluggish erection is the most pronounced and severe consequence of deca nandrolone abuse. If the recommended dosages and cycle duration are exceeded, rhinitis, headache, backache, and rash may occur. In general, side effects from nandrolone decanoate are the exception to the rule rather than a pattern.
