Injectable steroid nandrolone decanoate appeared at the very beginning of the wide distribution and use of steroids in 1962 and was initially prescribed as a therapeutic drug. Pharma Nan D300 is one of the most widely used anabolic steroids. This drug has earned its popularity due to the fact that it has many favorable properties. Structurally, nandrolone is very similar to testosterone, however, it lacks one carbon atom in the 19th position (therefore, it is also called 19-nortestosterone). Due to its structure, this steroid has much lower androgenic properties than testosterone. Most notably, nandrolone does not break down to more potent metabolites in androgen target tissues. And after all, this is a huge problem when applying testosterone. Despite the fact that nandrolone is reduced by the same enzyme (5-alpha reductase), which converts testosterone to DHT, dihydronandrolone is formed from nandrolone. This metabolite is weaker than nandrolone, and therefore the likelihood of unwanted side effects androgenic properties is much less.
Acute manifestations of salinization of the skin, acne, hair growth on the body and face, as well as hair loss occur much less frequently. Although such manifestations are possible with the use of this steroid (as a result of the androgenic effect of the drug), however, they usually occur only with the use of nandrolone in higher doses than recommended. Nandrolone also shows an incredibly low estrogen conversion capacity. This ability of nandrolone is only 20% of the ability of testosterone. This is probably due to the fact that although nandrolone is converted by the liver into estradiol, it is much less susceptible to this process in other areas of the aromatization of steroids, such as fatty tissue.
- Active build-up of high-quality muscle mass with minimal chance to get a rollback after completing the course. With an average of two months, athletes acquired up to 10 kg of muscles.
- Due to the increased flow of joint fluid, pain in the joints is reduced.
- Increase stamina during workouts.
- Improve immunity. This is connected with the original goal of creating an active component – the product was supposed to help HIV-sick people. As a result, it has become an additional advantage.
Without additional drugs, the list of side effects may be a little scary, but with the right approach, you can reduce the chance of their manifestation to “no.”
Perhaps the development of gynecomanstia. In simple terms: as a result of changes in hormonal levels, without additional male hormones, an increase in the chest of athletes is possible.
Weight gain, namely an increase in the percentage of fat.
Decreased testosterone production and, as a result, worsening of erection and libido.
As mentioned earlier, this is easily controlled in combination with other drugs.
