Deca Durabolin popularly called Deca is the trade name for the drug Nandrolone Decanoate. It was produced by Organon in the 1980s and is available in injectible form. A survey showed that Deca is one of the most widely used steroids and body builders and athletes buy Deca Durabolin to benefit from its numerous gains. Clinically it is used to treat muscle wasting diseases such as HIV/AIDS.
Deca Durabolin is a 19-Nor compound which causes muscle growth by increasing the nitrogen retention in the muscles and by storing more proteins. However both processes cannot occur with Deca alone and those who buy Deca Durabolin are advised to add more protein to his diet. The muscle mass gains with this steroid are quite satisfactory.
Deca Durabolin causes water retention which has positive effects as well as negative effects. The negative effect of water retention is that it adds weight to the body and makes the muscles look puffy. On the positive side the water retained in the connective tissues actually subsides or in some cases cures joint pains and that is why athletes and bodybuilders buy Deca Durabolin as it takes care of the joint pains which occur during rigorous trainings. It also improves the mineral content of bones and as well as collagen synthesis.
The normal cycle of Deca Durabolin lasts for about ten to twelve weeks. Users also buy Deca Durabolin as it has a long active half life and requires one injection per week only. The normal dosage of the Deca cycle ranges between 100 mg to 800 mg per week for men and while women should take doses between 50 mg to 100mg per week. Deca Durabolin is a tricky steroid; it is ineffective if the cycle is kept short but a long cycle causes side effects which could be serious. To bring the best of Deca it must be stacked; oral steroids like Dianabol are best suited for this purpose. Primobolan can also be used along with Deca Durabolin for maximum gains and low side effects.
Like other steroids you can buy Deca Durabolin on the black market. But now you can also buy steroids online. The online sources are mostly licensed pharmacies which supply genuine steroids. They take usually a week’s time to deliver the order and are quite safe and trust worthy.
Although bodybuilders buy Deca Durabolin for its amazing gains, it has certain side effects too. One of the drawbacks of Deca is that because of its long active life it can easily be detected in urine even after a year of its use. It causes the blood pressure to rise and nasal bleeding occurs frequently. It use cause the blood to take a longer time to clot and cuts take longer to heal.
Deca Durabolin also causes the over activity of sebaceous glands which results in oily skin and the eruption of acne on the face, shoulders, chest and back. Although it has low rate of aromatization, it may cause gynocomastia in men; gynocomastia is the development of large breasts which occurs because the number of estrogens in the body increases and binds with the estrogen receptors and gets deposited in the breast tissue. Headaches are frequent with this steroid which may also cause an increased sexual drive. This steroid may also cause a drop in the natural production of testosterones in the body.
Female users often suffer from Virilization or the appearance of male characteristics. Women may develop excess facial and body hair, hoarse voice and shrunken breasts. The clitoris enlarges too and menstrual cycle becomes irregular or may even stop. This is a serious condition as most of the changes are irreversible.
