Nandrolone (19-nortestosterone) is an anabolic steroid (manufactured in injectable form) that may be present naturally in the human body and is most commonly sold as Decanoate ester and less commonly as a Phenylpropionate ester. Nandrolone Decanoate is used in the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women and for the treatment of aplastic anaemias. Nandrolone is soluble in chloroform, in alcohol, in acetone, and in vegetable oils. It is practically insoluble in water.
Nandrolone Decanoate is one of the most popular and used anabolic steroid. It is great for developing muscle bulk growth because it furthers the protein biosynthesis and affects the water retention. Nandrolone Decanoate, in comparison to Testosterone, has a longer anabolic activity and the androgenic effect is lower. It is easy on the liver and causes the muscle cell to store more nitrogen in order to achieve a positive nitrogen balance. Since this compound has the capacity to store more water in the connective tissues it can temporary release them in joints (shoulder, elbow, and knee). Today it is the most popular and used drug for developing muscle mass and promoting protein synthesis.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate helps athletes to train harder and improve speed and power by increasing the levels of IGF-1 in muscle tissues. It also has the ability to improve collagen synthesis as well as bone mineral content. Recently Nandrolone Phenylpropionate became a more popular drug than Decanoate compounds for use in cutting cycles. It seems to produce less water retention than its longer acting counterparts. It stimulates the red blood cell production, and improves endurance during exercise via better lactic acid clearing and oxygen delivery.
Nandrolone based medications can be stacked with Methandrostenolone and Testosterone Cypionate for muscle bulk growth. Important results can also be achieved in scombination with Testosterone Suspension. It can be highly useful in bulking or cutting cycles and is usually stacked with Testosterone Enanthate and powerful oral steroids like Oxymetholone or Methandienone.
