What is nandrolone decanoate?
Studies shows that, Nandrolone Decanoate impoved collagen synthesis and Deca Durabolin increased bone mineral content. Deca Durabolin (and Nandrolone in general) doesnt produce many estrogenic or androgenic side effects. This is because Deca Durabolin has a very low rate of aromatization (conversion to estrogen via the aromatase enzyme), roughly equal to 20% the rate of Testosterone. Deca Durabolin also has a very long active life.
What is the half life of nandrolone decanoate?
By adding a decanoate ester, the half life has become to 15 days compared to just 4 days previously. This meant that users didn’t have to continue to inject themselves intramuscularly every other day.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that deca can take a very long time to clear the body completely. There have been some instances where it has been detected more than a year after it was used. It may not be appropriate therefore if drug testing is likely to be an issue.
What is the dosage of nandrolone decanoate?
The very first medical prescription guidelines for Deca Durabolin dosages was that of 50 – 100mg administered every 3 – 4 weeks for a total of 12 weeks. Different medical conditions have called for different prescription guideline of Deca-Durabolin doses.
For example, anemic patients prescribed Deca Durabolin was prescription guidelines of 100 – 200mg weekly, which consider a considerably heavier dosing scheme than the standard prescription guidelines. This the original reason as to why Organon had made the decision to upgrade the concentration of their Deca Durabolin product from 50mg/ml to 100mg/ml, and later on a 200mg/ml product.
What are the side effects of nandrolone decanoate?
However, medical dosages of Deca-Durabolin are much lower than the typical doses taken by bodybuilders. Deca prescriptions for patients can be as low as 50-100 mg a month, whilst bodybuilders often use up to 400 mg in just one week. This means the side effects of the steroid are often more pronounced when used illicitly for off-label purposes by bodybuilders.
