To strengthen the anabolic properties of testosterone, more than 100 synthetic steroid derivatives have been described for human purposes. The anabolic effect promotes protein synthesis, muscle growth and erythropoiesis. In clinical practice, substances with anabolic effect are needed to overcome various catabolic states. However, none of these compounds are devoid of androgenicity. Androgenic and anabolic properties of anabolic steroids cannot be totally separated. Therefore, it is more appropriate to use the term anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS).
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.
Primary Use: Deca’s role as a mass & strength builder is well documented, having proven itself many times over to be one of the few injectable steroids capable of eliciting serious mass & strength gains without subjecting the user to a host of unwanted androgenic side effects. For those who consider a full head of hair indispensable, Deca’s inability to convert to DHT (or any other metabolites which might negatively affect the hairline) makes it one of the best options available. However, this lack of DHT conversion is a double-edged sword, in that it is also responsible for the sexual dysfunction which sometimes manifests itself in those who use this drug. Often, this side effect can be mitigated through the concomitant use of testosterone, as testosterone supplies the missing metabolite necessary for normal sexual functioning…DHT. One of the most well known characteristics of Nandrolone is its penchant for alleviating joint pain. Regardless of the mechanism responsible for this effect, Deca is perhaps the single best steroid for this purpose, with many individuals adding Nandrolone into their programs purely to take advantage of this effect. Water retention is another defining characteristic of the drug, making it unsuitable for the end stages of contest prep, as well as those looking for a hard & dry appearance.
