Nandrolone has become a name in sports and bodybuilding due to its ability to promote quantity and quality in bodybuilding. This became popular through its brand names such as Deca Durabolin. Nandrolone is an androgen but it does not convert into dihydrotestosteronebut rather into a weaker form.
However, it still promotes protein synthesis in the body which is essential in building body mass and additional strength. As a mild steroid, it can be used by women because virilization effects are less likely to develop.
Nandrolone is a unique drug because it does not sacrifice the quality of muscles over its anabolic property. Its non-conversion to estrogen makes it possible to form high caliber muscles. This compound prevents the process of water accumulation and fats storage in the muscle. Because of this attribute, the muscles formed are tighter, leaner and more solid. The absence of excess water and fats is an advantage since the body will not demonstrate compensatory mechanisms such as high blood pressure, rapid heartbeat and cholesterol deposits. Nandrolone is known to relieve muscle pain and speeds up the regeneration process of the muscles.
The adverse reactions caused by this compound are milder compared to other anabolic steroids. It can cause acne formation, male pattern hair loss, insomnia and heightened aggression. These effects, however, may differ from one person to another.
As a progestin, nandrolone is not exempted from causing abnormal growth in the breasts tissues of some males. This is due to the pro-female effects of progestin. When taking Nandrolone, low tostesterone production, sexual dysfunction anddecreased libido are also potential side effects.
Nandrolone is administered through intramuscular injection once or twice a week at a dose of 400mg because it has long life. This drug is usually stacked with other anabolic steroids to achieve long-lasting and fast-acting effects.
