Nandrolone decanoate in the form of the Organon product, Deca-Durabolin, has been around for over 30 years. It has anabolic, androgenic, progestogenic and erythropoietic activity. The steroid maintains the anabolic activity of testosterone but the androgenic action is markedly diminished. The anabolic/androgenic quotient after 2 weeks of treatment has been shown to be 12 times that obtained with testosterone decanoate. Nandrolone decanoate has been shown to influence calcium metabolism positively and to increase bone mass in osteoporosis. Androgenic effects are relatively uncommon at the recommended therapeutic dosages.
Many athletes, ball players, fighters, and any athlete who could benefit from the therapeutic relief often supplement with Deca Durabolin. Such individuals commonly have no desire to build any new lean muscle mass, but the relief alone is invaluable. Further, such relief can be obtained by a very low dose. A slightly higher dose will provide relief, greatly enhance overall recovery, and enhance muscular endurance. When it comes to performance enhancement, most athletes will find this steroid is hard to beat. More importantly, the relief effects of Deca Durabolin are not masking or false; this anabolic steroid shares nothing in common with over the counter painkillers or prescription painkillers like opiates. Such painkillers only mask the pain, whereas Deca Durabolin can actually heal the body.
