Decabol 250 British Dragon
Chem. Abstr. Name:
Decabol is an injectable preparation containing
the active ingredient nandrolone decanoate. Nandrolone
is used in the treatment of osteoporosis (i.e.,
bone degeneration) due to its positive influence
on calcium metabolism and the increase in bone mass.
It also has a positive effect on protein metabolism
and is used where a protein deficiency exists, eg.
during chronic debilitating diseases, after major
surgery & severe trauma.
Appetite stimulation, osteoporosis, increased bone
density, recovery from major surgery and trauma
Each 10 ml multidose vial contains 250 mg per ml. Beginning in May, 2005, new flip-off tops are green coloured and have Decabol stamped on them. Older vials have a red coloured generic flip-off top.
This drug is unique (so far as I know) in that 5a -reductase, the enzyme which converts testosterone to the more-potent DHT, actually converts nandrolone to a less-potent compound. Therefore this AAS is somewhat deactivated in the skin, scalp, and prostate, and these tissues experience an effectively-lower androgen level than the rest of the body. Therefore, for the same amount of activity as another drug at the androgen receptors (ARs) in muscle tissue, Deca gives less activity in the scalp, skin, and prostate. Thus, it is the best choice for those particularly concerned with these things.
Its effectiveness at the androgen receptor of muscle tissue is superior to that of testosterone: it binds better. Yet, it gives only about half the muscle-building results per milligram. This I think is a result of its being less effective or entirely ineffective in non-AR-mediated mechanisms for muscle growth.
It also appears less effective or entirely ineffective in activity on nerve cells, certainly on the nerve cells responsible for erectile function. Use of Deca as the sole AAS often results in complete inability to perform sexually.
These problems can be solved by combining with a drug that does supply the missing activity: e.g. testosterone.
Nandrolone is proven to be a progestin. This fact is of clear importance in bodybuilding, because while moderate Deca-only use actually lowers estrogen levels as a consequence of reducing natural testosterone levels and thus allowing the aromatase enzyme less substrate to work with, Deca nonetheless can cause gyno in some individuals. Furthermore, just as progesterone will to a point increase sex drive in women, and then often decrease it as levels get too high, high levels of progestogenic steroids can kill sex drive in male bodybuilders, though there is a great deal of individual variability as to what is too much.
Incidentally, this progestogenic activity also inhibits LH production, and contrary to common belief, even small amounts of Deca are quite inhibitory, approximately as much so as the same amount of testosterone.
To some extent, nandrolone aromatizes to estrogen, and it does not appear that this can be entirely blocked by use of aromatase inhibitors – indeed, aromatase may not be involved at all in this process (there is no evidence in humans that such occurs) with the enzyme CYP 2C11 being in my opinion the more likely candidate for this activity. In any case, Cytadren, an aromatase inhibitor, has not been found effective in avoiding aromatization of nandrolone.
The drug is moderately effective at doses of 400 mg/week. The long half-life of Deca-Durabolin makes it unsuited to short alternating cycles, but suitable for more traditional cycles, with a built-in self-tapering effect in the weeks following the last injection.
Women 50-100 mg/week
: Nandrolone Decanoate can induce acne issues in higher dosages in sensitive individuals. It will retent water but far less than testosterone, blood pressure is dosage dependant. Aromatization is low. It Decreases HTPA function. It doesn't convert DTH (converts to NOR-DHT with low activity)..
: 17-18 months
: 14-16 days
: Anabolic/Androgenic Steroid
Most common are the administrations of 50 mg/ml and 100 mg/ml. Nandrolone Decanoate is the most widespread and most commonly used injectable steroid. Its popularity is due to the simple fact that it exhibits many very favorable properties. Structurally nandrolone is very similar to testosterone Nandrolone Decanoate is a favorite to thousands of steroid users. In our recent survey, it was revealed that Nandrolone Decanoate is the most widely used anabolic steroid. It is easy on the liver and promotes good size and strength gains while reducing body fat. How To Use Nandrolone Decanoate Nandrolone Decanoate causes the muscle cell to store more nitrogen than it releases so that a positive nitrogen balance is achieved. A positive nitrogen balance is synonymous with muscle growth since the muscle cell, in this phase, assimilates (accumulates) a larger amount of protein than usual. The same manufacturer, however, points out on the package insert that a positive nitrogen balance and the protein building effect that accompany it will occur only if enough calories and proteins are supplied. The highly anabolic effect of Nandrolone Decanoate is linked to a moderately androgenic component, so that a good gain in muscle mass and strength is obtained. At the same time, most athletes notice considerable water retention which, no doubt, is not as distinct as that with injectable testosterones but which in high doses can also cause a smooth and watery appearance. Since Nandrolone Decanoate also stores more water in the connective tissues, it can temporarily case or even cure existing pain in joints. This is especially good for those athletes who complain about pain in the shoulder, elbow, and knee; they can often enjoy pain-free workouts during treatment with Nandrolone Decanoate. Athletes use Nandrolone Decanoate, depending on their needs, for muscle buildup and in preparation for a competition. Nandrolone Decanoate Dosage Nandrolone Decanoate is suitable, even above average, to develop muscle mass since it promotes the protein synthesis and simultaneously leads to water retention. The optimal dose for this purpose lies between 200 and 600mg/week. Scientific research has shown that best results can be obtained by the intake of 2 mg/pound body weight. Those who take a dose of less than 200 mg/week will usually feel only a very light anabolic effect which, however, increases with a higher dosage. Steroid novices usually need only 200 mg/week. Nandrolone Decanoate works very well for muscle buildup when combined with Dianabol and Testosterone. The famous Dianabol/Nandrolone Decanoate stack results in a fast and strong gain in muscle mass. Most athletes usually take 15-40 mg Dianabol/day and 200-400 mg Nandrolone Decanoate/week. Even faster results can be achieved with 400 mg Nandrolone Decanoate/week and 500 mg Sustanon/week. Deca is a good basic steroid which, for muscle buildup, can be combined with many other steroids. In addition, at a dosage level above 600 mg/week, the anabolic effect no longer increases proportionately to the dosage increase, so that 1000 mg/week do not guarantee significantly better results than 600 mg/week Side Effects with Nandrolone Decanoate side effects with Nandrolone Decanoate are relatively low with dosages of 400 mg/week, androgenic caused side effects can occur. Most problems manifest themselves in high blood pressure and a prolonged time for blood clotting, which can cause frequent nasal bleeding and prolonged bleeding of cuts, as well as increased production of the sebaceous gland and occasional acne. Some athletes also report headaches and sexual overstimulation. When very high dosages are taken over a prolonged period, spermatogenesis can be inhibited in men, i.e. the testes produce less testosterone. The reason is that Nandrolone Decanoate, like almost all steroids, inhibits the release of gonadotropins from the hypophysis. Women and Nandrolone Decanoate Women with a dosage of up to 100 mg/week usually experience no major problems with Nandrolone Decanoate. At higher dosages androgenic-caused virilization symptoms can occur, including deep voice (irreversible), increased growth of body hair, acne, increased libido, and possibly clitorishypertrophy. Since most female athletes get on well with Nandrolone Decanoate a dose of Deca 50 mg+/week is usually combined with Anavar 10 mg+/day. Both compounds, when taken in a low dosage, are only slightly androgenic so that masculinizing side effects only rarely occur. Deca, through its increased protein synthesis, also leads to a net muscle gain and Anavar, based on the increased phosphocreatine synthesis, leads to a measurable strength gain with very low water retention. Other variations of administration used by female athletes are Nandrolone Decanoate and Winstrol tablets, as well as Nandrolone Decanoate and Primobolan.
