Nandrolon is a powerful anabolic drug with a low androgenic index. It was synthesized back in the last century for medical use. After its release to the free market, it has attracted the interest of athletes from all over the world.
Steroid in the form of ether is most commonly used. There are several types of this steroid: Nandrolon Decanoate and Nandrolon Phenylpropionate. Different substances have different absorption rates and exposure times. Originally known as Deca-Durabolin, there was a mass of names with identical inputs later on. It is only possible to buy the drug in an injection form, which does not reduce the demand for it among athletes.
Description of the steroid.
The drug has been in popularity since the mid-20th century. It first went on sale in 1962 and received the abbreviation Deca among sportsmen. Nandrolon Phenylpropionate was conscious after a short time. The drug was the only injectable steroid at the time, so it became, in demand in almost all sports.
The drug was very popular because of its rapid action and wide range of uses. It has a lot of positive effects on athletes' bodies:
- Increasing muscle volume, in a short period of time.
- Increase in strength indices by several times.
- Improves the quality of muscles, making them embossed and more resilient.
- Strengthens bones, has a beneficial effect on joint function.
- Positive effect on ligament elasticity, preventing injuries.
- Relieves pain in bones and joints during prolonged physical activity.
- Increases endurance, athlete can withstand heavy loads.
- Improves the transport of oxygen to muscle tissues.
- Strengthens the immune system, preventing a number of infectious diseases.
- Improves intestinal function.
Nandrolon Phenylpropionate has a quicker and softer effect on the body. It has an effect on the athlete's body within 4 days. Nandrolon decanoate has completely different properties. After application, it begins to have a gradual effect over a period of 15 days. For this reason, this form of nandrolon has become more in demand in sports circles..
It has been observed that nandrolone can bind to progestin receptors (about 20% of the injected substance), this is due to the deleted carbon atom in the 19 position. Almost all 19-nor anabolic steroids show progestin activity.
In addition, Retabolil caused the following side effects in studies:
- Headache - 20%.
- Rhinitis (nasal discharge) - 15 %.
- Back pain -15%
- Rashes - 10%
In addition, the following sometimes occurs during the course: elevated blood pressure, abdominal pain, irritability, headaches, depression and some other complications.
Progestin side effects
By binding to the progestin receptors of the pituitary gland, nandrolone enhances prolactin production and inhibits gonadotropic hormone secretion. Prolactin is similar to estrogen in many ways, and its effects are manifested by a reduction in the production of autologous testosterone, a slight increase in fat mass, and, in rare cases, gynecomastia.
The reduction of testosterone concentration in blood and activation of progesterone receptors may very often lead to a reduction in libido, which recovers within a month after the course (known as Deca Dick).
Progestin activity and its consequences (in particular sluggish erections, suppression of libido, and rarely gynecomastia) are probably the main and very unpleasant drawback of deca durabolin, but they can be successfully prevented. Prolactin inhibitors are used for this purpose: bromocriptine or more modern and safe - cabergoline (dostinex). These drugs significantly increase the sex drive during (and outside) the course, enhance orgasm and shorten the recovery time between sexual intercourse. The anabolic drug Winstrol has also been shown to have antiprogestin activity (Ellis AJ, Cawston TE, 1994), so they combine very well together.
