Anabolic androgenic steroids are synthetic testosterone analogs – including Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) and differ in structure from testosterone only by changes in chemical functions on the steroidal backbone. Wow. All that sounds pretty difficult, doesn’t it?
Don’t worry, we’ll explain it to you in this post in an understandable and simple way:
- What is Deca Durabolin (nandrolone decanoate)?
- What are the effects and side effects?
- How is the anabolic androgenic steroid used?
- What else should you know about Deca Durabolin?
Note: This blog post is only intended to inform you about anabolic steroids (anabolic androgenic steroids – AAS), because the trade, purchase and use of these substances is regulated in some countries – including Germany. We would like to inform here, but not to encourage or instruct consumption.
What is Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin)?
Nandrolone Decanoate has been one of the most popular anabolic androgenic steroids (kur AAS) in bodybuilding from the very beginning. It is better known by its brand name Deca Durabolin and is often simply called “Deca”. The decoanate is added to give the drug a long lasting effect of around three weeks.
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) is so popular because it can be used specifically to define your muscles (nandrolone is closely related to testosterone) and has comparatively few side effects. It also combines well with other steroids. Mixing different active ingredients and substances is also called stacking.
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) belongs to the anabolic steroids (anabolic androgenic steroids – AAS). That is, it has a muscle-building (anabolic) and a masculinizing (androgenic) effect. In its chemical structure it is similar to testosterone. Nandrolone Decanoate is also an injectable steroid, meaning it is delivered into the body via an injection.
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin): What can the steroid do?
Since every steroid has disadvantages as well as advantages, you should use it responsibly! We recommend that you do not exceed the weekly dosage amount of 600 mg. Up to 600 mg “Deca” works wonders, from a higher dosage the disadvantages usually outweigh the benefits. For steroid novices we recommend not to exceed 200 mg weekly. Overall, you should always pay attention to your body and listen to the signals. Every person is different and also reacts differently to the substances.
In principle, we advise every user of anabolic androgenic steroids to use Cycle Support. During the steroid cure you should support your whole organism and especially the liver with On-Cycle-Therapy. In order to bring your hormone balance back into balance after the cure, to boost the body’s own testosterone production again and to protect the gained muscle mass, you should rely on Post-Cycle Support.
Effect Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin)
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) has a muscle-building and strength-enhancing effect. This is the anabolic effect. Tissue, skeletal muscle, bone density and red blood cells also gain mass, so it is an all-rounder in the world of anabolic androgen steroids (AAS). Unlike other steroids, it has little or no aggression-increasing and feminizing effects (anti-estrogen). The drug Deca Durabolin is also used to rebuild bone mass, i.e. to treat osteoporosis. Back pain and bone pain can be well counteracted. It even builds up new bone mass. It is also used for medically induced muscle loss.
Here are the advantages of Deca Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanoate) at a glance:
- muscle building, maximum anabolic
- hard, bulging and defined muscle mass
- strengthens tissue, skeletal muscles, etc.
- increases bone density
- gain of red blood cells
- no aggression increasing effect
- no feminizing effect
- long duration of action (about three weeks)
Side effects Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin)
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) may have a negative effect on potency, procreative power and libido. It can also have a vasoconstrictive effect, which can cause various ailments and diseases. However, it has comparatively few side effects and can be combined well with other Testosterones to prevent some side effects. Cardiovascular problems, liver damage, gynecomastia, excessive increase of red blood cells or enlargement of the prostate may also occur. If you suffer from cardiovascular problems, prostate cancer, liver or kidney problems, high blood pressure, diabetes, epilepsy, migraines, metabolic abnormalities or other serious diseases, please stay away from all anabolic steroids.
In principle, all anabolic androgenic steroids can cause hair loss, deeper voice, more body hair and acne due to the androgenic effect. Women in particular should reconsider taking testosterone preparations or be careful with them in order to keep an eye on the masculinizing effect. In addition, female athletes may experience altered menstrual cycles, hoarseness and voice changes, hair loss, clitoral growth, etc. During pregnancy and breastfeeding, anabolic steroids are of course also taboo.
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) Usage
Nandrolone Decanoate is used intramuscularly by injection – i.e. the needle is injected into the muscle. From there it slowly enters the blood, where the active ingredient Deca Durabolin is converted into nandrolone. Thanks to the added decanoate, the half-life is extended to about three weeks.
Deca Durabolin is a clear, yellow, oily liquid that contains the anabolic steroid. It can develop its effect only with sufficient calorie and protein intake. At least 2.5 g of protein per kilogram of body weight experts advise.
Beginners are advised to seek advice on injecting from a knowledgeable person. There are also good instructions on the Internet. In addition, as a beginner you should increase the dose slowly and only start stacking (i.e. combining with other active ingredients) after a period of acclimatization. If side effects occur, you can find out faster what the problem is!
As mentioned before: Deca Durabolin is a good base steroid and can easily be combined / stacked with other steroids to improve or prolong the effect.
Here are a few examples of possible combinations for advanced users:
Fast and strong muscle gain:
15 to 40 mg of Dianabol per day & 200 to 400 mg of Deca Durabolin per week.
Extra fast muscle gain:
