Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the most popular anabolics used by both amateurs and professionals. It is one of the safer measures used in bodybuilding to increase muscle mass and strength.
Deca-Durabolin is a good base steroid for gaining muscle mass – it can be stacked with many other steroids. Usually, Testosterone, Metanabol, Winstrol are added to it.
Nandrolone works on the principle of improving a positive nitrogen balance – increasing the supply of nitrogen. Nitrogen in a binding form is part of the protein. A positive balance of nitrogen is a direct stimulus for the growth of muscle cells as they assimilate more proteins than usual.
Another great property of Nandrolone is the ability to reduce the level of the catabolic hormone – cortisol / cortisone by blocking cortisol receptors – the effect is strong anti-catabolic properties even during low-calorie diets.
Another advantage of using “Deka” is the storage of large amounts of water in the ponds. Such a scheme of action allows people who suffer from various types of pain in the shoulders, elbows or knees to continue heavy training. However, it should be mentioned that the aches and pains usually return after the remedy has worn off.
Then it is necessary to carry out specific rehabilitation treatments to restore the joints to a working condition. Nandrolone also has a positive effect on calcium metabolism and increases bone mass, which is why it is often used in medicine in the treatment of osteoporosis.
Water retention occurs at higher doses, although it is not as strong as in the case of Testosterone, as Nandrolone aromatizes (about 20%) to a less active norestrogen.
Similarly, converting to DHT – in the case of Nandrolone, it converts to NORDHT, which is not as strong as its testosterone counterpart, thanks to which DHT side effects are smaller – acne and hair loss rarely occur.
Although side effects are rare with doses up to 400 mg per week, some side effects may occur. The most common problem is high blood pressure. As Nandrolone causes a prolongation of blood clotting time, problems with blood clotting after cuts and nosebleeds may occur.
Some may also experience headaches and a decrease in libido and even the so-called “DECA-DICK”, i.e. no sexual stimulation and erection, especially when testosterone is not included in the treatment. Nandrolone should not be combined with Parabolan, as this combination may cause gynecomastia (progesterone effect).
Nandrolone dosing varies widely. Beginners use it in doses of 200-300 mg per week, and intermediate ones in the dose of 400-600 mg per week. Higher doses are already used by global players. The period of use varies between 8-12 and even 16 weeks.
HCG, Clomid, and Nolvadex are used in post-cyclical therapy. And it should be started about 21 days after the last injection with Nandrolone.
