The world of steroids offers a variety of benefits to the bodybuilders. The urge to need results in a discovery of a huge amount of drugs.
Some are used for bulking while other steroids are used for the cutting.
One of the most common or popular anabolic steroids is “Deca-Durabolin also called Nandrolone”.
Some of the gym rats and bodybuilding fans are spreading the rumors that Nandrolone has none of any side-effects and it is only beneficial to get jacked and achieve all of your desired goals.
There is no any surprise that many crazy guys and fitness lovers are trying to build up the muscle mass by trying a lot of methods in which one of the ways is Deca-Durabolin.
In my opinion, the Deca-Durabolin is not a good and suitable option because it has many side-effects.
I’m not going to deny Nandrolone use completely because there are different types of disease that require Nandrolone necessary.
Before taking any decision, I recommend you to read this article and understand What Is Deca, Mode Of Action, Direction Of Uses, Side-Effects, And The Precautions.
What is the Deca-Durabolin?
The Deca Durabolin is an anabolic steroid and small molecule that is made up from the Nandrolone and ester Decanoate and similar to natural testosterone hormone.
It shows similarity to the testosterone hormone from 1 to 19th atom and prepared from alkyl ethers of estradiol and resemble human natural testosterone hormone.
The changes in 19 atoms Deca make its different to the testosterone and reduces the risk of several side-effects. The ability of protein binding is at least 58%.
It was designed in the 1950s and prescribed by a doctor for the treatment of different diseases such as osteoporosis, for increases red blood cell count, muscle-wasting diseases, and menopausal women.
The other versions of Deca are Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, Nortestosterone Phenylpropionate, And Nortestosterone Phenyl Propionate.
The Role Of Deca-Durabolin In The Bodybuilding
The Deka is more famous in bodybuilding among old school bodybuilders and the sports circle for over the last 30 years.
The Deca Durabolin is more famous in a bodybuilding as compared to the testosterone and other anabolic steroids because it does not convert or broken into the DHT further by an enzyme 5a-reductase and does not have the effects like other such as hair loss and acne breakouts.
The Deca has 5 time-less risk to convert into the estrogen and suppresses the testosterone production around 70%. The Post Cycle therapy is good for recovery and avoids the dangerous effects.
If we talk about effectiveness so, the testosterone is half effective as compared to the other steroids such as testosterone.
In a bodybuilding, the bodybuilder uses Nandrolone for different purposes such as;
- Increase muscle growth
- Improved strength and power
- Stimulate rapid recovery
- Prevent the injuries
- Enhanced endurance level for intense workouts
How Does It Work?
The Deca has worked in different ways in which some of the modes are mentioned below;
The Nandrolone is also occurs naturally in the body in small quantity that increases the production of erythropoietin in the blood and urge of urinary excretion.
1) Binds To The Androgen Receptors:
The Nandrolone acts on bone marrow and binds to the androgen receptors and stimulate the production of the testosterone.
It has fewer effects to directly act on the muscle growth while a production of testosterone may allow the production of anabolic properties such as muscle-building features.
It is the androgen receptor agonist that binds to the different complex receptors that allow the binding of the nucleus, nucleotide sequence, and the chromosomal DNA.
The specific area for binding is HERS and transcriptional activity of the genes for producing androgen effects.
2) Increase Appetite Rate:
The Deca works to increase appetite system for the bulking. The craving toward foods and hunger pangs allow you to eat more.
Eating more definitely involve in the bulking. Make sure, the bulking does not mix with the amount of fat.
For lean muscle mass, you need to perform rigorous or intense workouts.
3) Nitrogen Retention:
The Deca Durabolin increases nitrogen retention process to stimulating the protein synthesis process.
Further, this protein helps to build up the muscles and repair after a workout.
Without nitrogen retention or protein synthesis, your muscles do not grow.
4) Rapid Recovery:
Nandrolone improves the RBC’s or erythrocytes and nutrition circulation to all over the body that results in the quick recovery, reduced fatigue, and preventing from an injury.
The quick energy allows you to perform hard training sessions.
5) Improved Collagen Synthesis:
The Deca stimulates the improved collagen synthesis that can make your joints feel more smooth and healthier.
The smooth or healthy joints and muscles allow you to perform with a less risk of injury.
6) Production Of Growth Hormones:
The Deca has increases the IGF-1 level that can help you to produce more growth hormones and give other benefits such as improve the health of the skin and the better sleep.
Why Is It Banned And The Drug Testing?
The Deca is illegal in the USA and other countries because it is scheduled in class three drugs while it is legal after getting licensed physician.
The Nandrolone is banned due to the different reason such as it was abused by the athletes and bodybuilders.
Everyone on the sports want to follow shortcut “steroids” instead of following the natural way.
It becomes more popular among athletes because it giving a lot of benefits from performance to the recovery.
The Nandrolone can easily identify from the urine samples of athletes and bodybuilders during drug testing.
It can identify by measuring the amount of Deca as compared to natural range.
The natural range in the men is two nanograms while the women have 5ng/ml. If anyone of the athletes produces more amount of Deca as compared to the natural range, so the drug testing become positive.
The elimination or half-life from plasma is very short.
How To Use (Directions)?
You need to inject the Deca for once per week. Read the Deca Durabolin manual for following proper instructions.
It is available in both form oral and injectable form while there are many natural supplements are also available in a market.
There are different ranges are available on the internet and you can also research deeply.
The average guys are using the 600mg per day. The exceeding of the dose beyond this range can maximize the chances of harmful side effects.
The recommended amount of the Deca is at least 2mg/Lb with respect to the body mass per week.
One of the con is that it takes almost 8 weeks or more before seeing the result and there will be a greater chance of longer steroids cycle.
Generally, most of the users have used Deca for around 26-30 weeks per cycle.
The result time period varies from oral and injectable versions, subcutaneous or muscular rate, and different formulation.
It also depends upon the type of drugs such as Lipid-Soluble Esters, Oily Suspensions, Enanthate Or Cypionate.
Some people experience result in 4 weeks, some are seeing the result with 8 weeks or it may proceed longer.
The incorporation of a high dosage approximately 400-600 mg per weeks give you faster results.
What Are The Side Effects?
Every type of anabolic steroids has a lot of side-effects.
Similarly, Nandrolone has the ability to interfere with other natural hormones such as testosterone.
It develops a sign of Virilization in women such as deepening of the voice, increase facial hair, loss of fertility, and enlargement of the clitoris area.
The common side effects are increased blood pressure, chills, gynecomastia, water retention, Deca-Dick, liver disease, cardiovascular, and other.
The most severe effects are kidney damages and other organs and sometimes they are life-threatening.
Because of the side-effects, there is a need to run the PCT for overcoming the harsh effects and prevent from suppression of a natural testosterone hormone.
It will take 2-6 months to adjust the body system to return its normal function.
The Clomid, Arimidex, and estrogen blockers may help your body to overcome the harsh effects.
Precautions While Taking Deca-Durabolin:
The Deca is not for you if you have a history of any kind of diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, liver disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and migraines.
