What is Nandrolone Decanoate
Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca) is the most powerful muscle gaining drug. If you failed to gain muscle mass with it, then nothing will help you.
This injectable steroid has very high anabolic and low androgenic properties, prolonged action and low probability of side effects. It is important to note that human body produces it naturally during pregnancy and after intensive physical exercise, however in small doses.
Why Nandrolone is the optimal choice?
Nandrolone differs from Testosterone in chemical structure, It lacks carbon atom in the position 19, therefore it undergoes different metabolic pathways. This is also the reason of its more powerful anabolic activity and lack of side effects (as compared to Testosterone).
For example, it is well known that 5-alpha reductase converts Testosterone into potent androgen – dihydrotestosterone, which conditions androgenic side effects of this hormone. Meanwhile this enzyme converts Nandrolone into very weak androgen – dihydronandrolone, which has negligible effect on the body.
Nandrolone hit the market in 1962, since that time it has become one of the most favorite steroids among bodybuilders. Its unbelievable anabolic effect and low risks of side effects made it an outstanding steroid.
