Nandrolone first began to be used in 1957, as Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, which is an ester variant of Nandrolone and its effects are felt very quickly.
The anabolic steroid Nandrolone is sold and traded under the brand name, Deca Durabolin. To be clearer, Deca Durabolin is the Decanoate ester variant of nandrolone and its commercial name is Deca Durabolin. Commonly known as “Deca”, it is one of the most popular and widely known anabolic steroid used by weight lifters and body builders. It is number two in the category of anabolic steroids. The first rank is held by Dianabol or Methandrostenolone and in third place is Winstrol or Stanozolol. Deca is the steroid of choice, not only for athletes and weight lifters, but the medical profession also holds it in high esteem. It was first brought into use in 1960, and was one of the earliest anabolic steroids made in the laboratory. A company named Organon developed it and it was launched into the market for public consumption in 1962 with the name, Deca Durabolin.
A lot of people think that Deca Durabolin is very good for bone tissue as well as joints. This is true but most athletes and body builders have an incorrect idea about why it is good for joints and bones. Some wrong impressions associated with Deca is that it lubricates the joints or stores water in joints and connective tissues. This is absolutely not true.
In reality, nandrolone stimulates a very large amount of collagen synthesis, much more than other types of anabolic steroids. Some studies have also proved that Deca has a capability of increasing bone mineral content in very large quantities.
For the athlete and body builder, this means that a positive effect is noticed on joints and connective tissue, making them strong in the building, strengthening, and mass adding cycles. Such people are then able to lift much heavier weights and the bone and connective tissues recovers much better, along with increasing the tolerance to the stress that happens on bones and joints as a result of intensive workouts and resistance training.
Nandrolone first began to be used in 1957, as Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, which is an ester variant of Nandrolone and its effects are felt very quickly. This version of Nandrolone did become quite well known. What went against it was the fact that it had a very short half-life and this made its use very restricted. If you wanted to use Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, you would need injections at least every alternate day. This inconvenience was a hindrance and therefore, Nandrolone was relaunched as Deca Durabolin adding a Decanoate ester to it. This Decanoate ester ensures that Nandrolone has an extended half-life of almost two weeks rather than just four days like phenylpropionate.
Being a rather mild steroid, Deca Durabolin soon gained popularity in the world of sportsmen and the medical community. While this is true, there are some myths and incorrect impressions about this drug, that need to be cleared up. We will talk about that in a minute.
