Nandrolone Decanoate is the most used nandrolone-based steroid. It is appreciated for its relatively mild side effects and the muscle mass earned by the athletes following a sterile shot. Because this steroid has been created as a medicine for children, women and the elderly, its negative effects on health are somewhat soft.
Active Substance: Nandrolone Decanoate
Commercial Names: Anabolin, Deca-Nan, Deca-Durabolin, Decabol, Decabolic, Nandro D, Dexxa

What Is Nandrolone Decanoate ?
Nandrolone Decanoate is an anabolic steroid 19-nortestosterone that is actually a testosterone without a carbon atom at position 19. The active substance is nandrolone that is attached to a decanoate ester motif that slows down its action and makes it slowly released into the blood. Nandrolone is active in the body for 2-3 weeks. For this reason it is given once in 2-3 weeks, but bodybuilders administer once a week.
Nandrolone Decanoate is probably the most desired steroid when it comes to restoring the body. Due to the increased mineral absorption and synthesis of nandrolone collagen, the most pronounced therapeutic effects are on the restoration of connective tissues.
Deca is appreciated for good but not spectacular muscle mass gains. For these reasons, it is used in longer steroid cycles (8-12 weeks). It brings smooth, but qualitative muscle gain.
Nandrolone Decanoate Dosage
The recommended weekly dose is 200-600mg/week. However, the best result is obtained when you use of 4mg/1kg body.
Nandrolone Decanoate is a steroid that can be easily combined with other steroids depending on the intended purposes. In definition cycles it can be combined with 10-20mg/day of Stanozolol. For these purposes it can also be used with Fluoxymesterone or Trenbolone.
During the periods of muscle mass accumulation it can be used together with 20-30mg of Dianabol. The same can be used with Oxymetholone or Testosterone.
Deca-Durabolin can also be used safely by women in doses of 50mg/week. Up to 100mg may result in virilisation.
What Are The Side Effects Of Nandrolone Decanoate ?
Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the safest steroids in the world for men. Its negative effects can happen, but very seldom. This is another important reason why it has become the second most used injectable steroid in the world after testosterone.
Estrogenic Side Effects
When using 400mg/week, conversion to estrogen was observed at approximately 20% of those who use it. This lead to water and fat retention, sometimes gynecomastia. If case this happens, you can use anti-estrogens such as Anastrozole or aromatase inhibitors such as Arimidex.
Androgenic Side Effects
Oily skin, acne, hair growth or loss are the negative effects that can happen. Using Proscar to prevent hair loss in nandrolone will worsen the situation rather than save it. This is because Proscar increases the androginity of nandrolone even more.
Another negative effect of nondrolone can be the lowering of libido and testosterone production. Therefore it is recommended to use Nandrolone with Testosterone. It would be good to use testosterone 2 weeks longer than the nandrolone and it is desirable to be a long-chain testosterone.
Nandrolone Cardiovascular Side Effects
Studies have shown that Nandrolone Decanoate lowers good HDL cholesterol and increases LDL. Even if it affects good cholesterol more than testosterone, it anyway affects less the cardiovascular system than many other oral steroids. To maintain good cholesterol levels, use 4-5 grams of Omega-3/day.
Side Effects On Testosterone
Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the most supportive steroids when it comes to testosterone production. That is why PCT is absolutely necessary. Moreover, PCT must be aggressive even with Pregnyl's intervention at the end of the cycle. This must be towards the end of the deca-durabolin cycle and not during the post cycle.
