Deca Durabolin originally produced by Organon is the brand name for the Anabolic Steroid, Nandrolone Decaonate (19-norandrost-4-en-3-one-17beta-ol, 17β-Hydroxyestra-4-en-3-one). First developed in the early 1960’s, Deca Durabolin was one of the first Steroids to be commercially produced and sold. Developed to help with a number of different medical purposes such as, osteoporosis in post-menopausal women, individuals suffering from muscle wasting diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Anemia and to treat certain types of Breast Cancer, to name a few.
Being rated as one of the most popular Steroids of all time, only below Dianabol, Deca is used by bodybuilders, mainly in bulking cycles, alongside Steroids such as Dianabol and Testosterone. Deca is a highly Anabolic and Low Androgenic Steroid, making it popular amongst users who are sensitive to androgenic related side effects such as Acne, hair loss and aggression.
Classified as a 19-nor Anabolic Steroid, Deca Durabolin is basically Testosterone with a carbon atom removed at the 19th position. This small change in the chemical structure, ultimately gives us a new Steroid, very different from Testosterone.
Nandrolone Decaonate has a long half life of around 2 weeks, meaning users cycling Deca, only need to inject once a week. Deca works by increasing Protein Synthesis, increase IGF-1 production and increase Nitrogen retention, all of these lead to faster muscle and strength gains. Deca Durabolin also increases collagen synthesis and increasing bone mineral content, which in turn results in joint relief. This is one of the main reasons why many powerlifters and athletes use Deca Durabolin, not for muscle and strength gains, but rather for joint relief.
Deca Side Effects:
Generally considered to be one of the more milder Steroids in terms of side effects, this is mainly at low dosages, at higher dosages side effects often occur, although still far less than when compared to Highly Androgenic Steroids such as Dianabol or Testsoterone.
Androgenic Side Effects: Hair loss (Male pattern Baldness), acne and hair growth are all possible, although rarely seen with this Steroid.
Estrogenic Side Effects: While Deca Durabolin does convert to Estrogen, it converts at a very low rate, thus Estrogen related side effects such as High blood pressure, Gynecomastia and water retention are generally not an issue with this Steroid. Users sensitive to Gynecomastia should still keep a product such as Nolvadex on hand, in case problems arise. Gynecomastia can also occur from an increase in Prolactin, which unfortunately is a common side effect with Deca, to combat this side effect a product such as Cabergoline needs to be used. Nolvadex and Anti-Estrogens will not help with Prolactin induced Gynecomastia.
Deca is known to be extremely suppressive to natural Testosterone production, this often makes it hard for users to recover from a Deca cycle, as well as cause erectile dysfunction during the cycle. Using Testosterone alongside Deca during a cycle at a higher dosage, usually solves the erectile dysfunction problem, however once the cycle is over, a large “PCT” is often needed to help the body recover and produce its own Testosterone naturally. A typical PCT for a cycle containing Deca, would consist of HCG, Nolvadex and Clomid.
