Chemical Names: 19-norandrost-4-en-3-one-17beta-ol 17beta-hydroxy-estr-4-en-3-one Estrogenic Activity: low

Progestational Activity: moderate

Description: Nandrolone decanoate is an injectable form of the anabolic steroid nandrolone. The decanoate ester provides a slow release of nandrolone from the site of injection, lasting for up to three weeks.

Like testosterone, nandrolone exhibits relatively strong anabolic properties. Unlike testosterone, however, its tissue-building activity is accompanied by weak androgenic properties. The mild properties of nandrolone decanoate have made it one of the most popular injectable steroids worldwide, highly favored by athletes for its ability to promote significant strength and lean muscle mass gains without strong androgenic or estrogenic side effects.

History: Nandrolone decanoate was first described in 1960.It was developed by the international pharmaceuticals giant Organon, and sold under the brand name Deca-Durabolin. How Supplied: Nandrolone decanoate is widely available in human and veterinary drug markets. Composition and dosage may vary by country and manufacturer, but usually contain 25 mg/ml, 50 mg/ml, 100 mg/ml, or 200 mg/ml of steroid dissolved in oil. Structural Characteristics: Nandrolone decanoate is a modified form of nandrolone. Esterified steroids are designed to prolong the window of therapeutic effect following administration, allowing for a less frequent injection schedule compared to injections of free (unesterified) steroid. Nandrolone decanoate provides a sharp spike in nandrolone release 24-48 hours following deep intramuscular injection, which steadily declines to near baseline levels approximately two weeks later. The mean depot-release half-life of nandrolone decanoate is 8 days. Side Effects (Estrogenic): Nandrolone has a low tendency for estrogen conversion,estimated to be only about 20% of that seen with testosterone.438 This is because while the liver can convert nandrolone to estradiol, in other more active sites of steroid aromatization such as adipose tissue nandrolone is far less open to this process. Nandrolone may cause side effects such as increased water retention, body fat gain, and gynecomastia.

An anti-estrogen such as clomiphene citrate or tamoxifen citrate may be necessary to prevent estrogenic side effects if they occur. Side Effects (Androgenic): Although classified as an anabolic steroid,androgenic side effects are still possible with this substance, especially with higher doses. This may include bouts of oily skin, acne, and body/facial hair growth. Anabolic/androgenic steroids may also aggravate male pattern hair loss. Liver toxicity is unlikely.

Deca (Nandrolone Decanoate)…ashort profile.

Posted by Bigrobbie

Deca Durabolin is comprised of an injectable steroid substance that typically used in conjunction with various other drugs of the same nature. Deca Durabolin was introduced 1980’s when bodybuilding as a sport and as a lifestyle was just beginning to come into its own and gain legitimacy as a respected field. The drug’s clinical generic name (Deca Durabolin is its trade or brand name and is manufactured by the company Organon) is actually Nandrolone Decanoate. At its basest level, the drug is a type of progestin that is created by altering its carbon make up. Some steroid users have lauded Deca Durabolin for its medical properties, though little research has confirmed these claims. For example, many believe (myself included) the substance improves collagen in the body as well as the durability of bones. This is especially important to individuals who earn a living off of their bodies and/or want to continue lifting and growing but have an injury that is a constant problem. Most joint injuries will nag at you even after you have “healed” and Deca is great for easing discomfort from these injuries.

As I just mentioned, it is thought that the anti-inflammatory properties of the drug have beneficial side effects on joints when used properly. Other results of using the steroid have been shown to be increased muscle growth, higher appetite and bone density. The final side effect (increased bone density) is so pronounced, that Deca Durabolin is sometimes used a way to address osteoporosis in women who have low or fragile bone composition. It was fully approved by the Federal Drug Administration in 1983. Many people are curious as to why Deca Durabolin is supposedly good for treating joint pain and seems to avoid many deleterious pitfalls that are common among anabolic steroids. One of the main reasons for this is because the drug is not decomposed into DHT. Because of this fact, a number of the more unsightly and unhealthy by products of steroid abuse can be avoided as it stops short of reaching that crucial chemical stage. Another plus to employing Deca Durabloin is that the strain on the user’s liver is greatly diminished as a result. While the manufacturers of the substance are staunchly opposed to “off label” use, or non-approved activity, the product remains one of the most highly sought after steroids on the market today.

Ultimately it is thought that Deca Durabolin does indeed help alleviate joint pain often associated with wear and tear on the body through athletics or age. This is because the drug forces connective tissue to retain greater amounts of water than would normally occur and, in the process, has the effect of greatly reducing pain multiple joints. The drug has a tremendously long half life and traces of the substance stay in one’s urine stream for up to eighteen months. This is referred to as having a long cycle and is often used at 400-600 mg per week.

I want to caution newer AAS users always use Deca with a testosterone base if cycling. Never run a “Deca only” cycle. Testosterone should be the base for every cycle to avoid “Deca or Fina dick.” Just a quick heads up for any newbs out there thinking of using Deca, or any nandrolone.

To be honest as my years march on I will choose NPP over Deca anyday....I never got Deca dick because I always kept my testosterone dosage higher by at least 200mg. I did however have long term recovery troubles. Deca isn't know as an easy drug in terms of delayed sides!
