What is nandrolone decanoate? It is an active substance that has high anabolic and moderate androgenic component. This substance is mainly used in the stacking up of one or more androgenic steroids. The body builders use this substance in the mass build up phase. Nandrolone decanoate is also one such steroid that is also used by women and a combination of nandrolone decanoate, depot testosterone and Dianabol is something that has been in used for a very long time and it is basically designed as synthetic or laboratory created anabolic steroids mainly to mimic the effects of testosterone. The dosage of nandrolone decanoate comes with two choices one which the professionals give for medical condition and one which is provided by bodybuilders. In the medical condition mainly for the treatment of anaemia it is recommended to take 100 mg to 200 mg weekly while for women it is 50 mg to 100 mg. In the bodybuilding circles it is advised inject dosages twice a week which can range from 200 mg to 600 mg weekly.
The initials dosage can be increased slightly during the course in order to achieve success and get faster results. The nandrolone decanoate works in the body for over a period of 4-6 weeks so even one injection per week is considered to be safe and sufficient to obtain an even level. The nandrolone decanoate like other synthetic anabolic androgenic steroids can suppress the luteinizing hormone; which is one of the hormones that triggers the testes to manufacture endogenous or body produced testosterone. Testicular atrophy is another condition; shrinking testicles can also happen if the testes are not used to produce testosterone. It has the ability to stimulate blood cell production that is the main reason why body builders and athletes benefit from increased oxygenation potential not only to the muscles but to all the cells in the body.
It is said to inject dosages twice a week because if one tries to inject more of the dosage of this steroid then it can cause the following side effects:
- Increased blood pressure
- Nasal bleeding
- Prolonged blood clotting
- Increased sebaceous gland production
- Sexual hyperstimulation
- Sexual inactivity
- Inhibition of spermatogenesis
- Strong suppression of hormone production
- Water storage
- Women may become pregnant
Nandrolone decanoate is a chemical name for deca and is also known by some other brand names like:
- Deca- durabol
- Deca Durabolin
- Deca hybolin
- Organon deca Durabolin
- Nortestosterone decanoate
Initially it was used for the treatment of anaemia and for treating hereditary angioedema, growth failure and in a few cases breast cancer. The basic function of nandrolone used to be biding and activating specific androgen receptors in tissues such as muscles, bone, seminal vesicles, and the larynx and even the hair follicles. Now it is mainly used as a steroid by body builders and athletes to prepare for competitions.
