Deca Durabolin by Meditech or Nandrolone (19-nortestosterone) is an anabolic steroid that may be present naturally in the human body but in very small quantities. Nandrolone is most commonly produced commercially as its Decanoate ester. Nandrolone Decanoate is usually used in the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It is also prescribed for some aplastic anaemias.
Since Nandrolone Decanoate has no property of breaking down into DHT, it has less deleterious effects common to most anabolic steroids on the scalp, skin, and prostate. It breaks down to the much weaker androgen Dihydronandrolone. The lack of alkylation on the 17a-carbon drastically diminishes its toxicity impact on liver. As Nandrolone Decanoate is a progestin, its estrogenic effects resulting from reaction with aromatase also get minimized.
Deca Durabolin is a favourite to thousands of steroid users worldwide especially bodybuilders and athletes. In a survey, it was revealed that Nandrolone Decanoate is the most widely used anabolic steroid. It is easy on the liver while it promotes strength gains while reducing body fat. Although Nandrolone Decanoate is still contained in many generic compounds, but still almost every athlete connects this substance with Deca Durabolin.
Deca Durabolin retains larger volume of nitrogen in the muscle cell than it releases and that is why a positive nitrogen balance is easily achieved. A positive nitrogen balance means muscle growth since the muscle cell, in this phase, assimilates (accumulates) a larger amount of protein than in normal conditions.
