World wide “Deca” is one of the most widely used anabolic steroids. Its popularity is due to the simple fact that it exhibits many very favorable properties. Structurally nandrolone is very similar to testosterone, although it lacks a carbon atom at the 19th position (hence its other name 19-nortestosterone). The resulting structure is a steroid that exhibits much weaker androgenic properties than testosterone. Of primary interest is the fact that nandrolone will not break down to a more potent metabolite in androgen target tissues. You may remember this is a significant problem with testosterone. Although nandrolone does undergo reduction via the same (5-alpha reductase) enzyme that produces DHT from testosterone, the result in this case is dihydronandrolone. This metabolite is weaker than the parent nandroloness, and is far less likely to cause unwanted androgenic side effects. Strong occurrences of oily skin, acne, body/facial hair growth and hair loss occur very rarely. It is however possible for androgenic activity to become apparent with this as any steroid, but with nandrolone higher than normal doses are usually responsible.
Nandrolone also show an extremely lower tendency for estrogen conversion. For comparison, the rate has been estimated to be only about 20% of that seen with testosterones. This is because while the liver can convert nandrolone to estradiol, in other more active sites of steroid aromatization such as adipose tissue nandrolone is far less open to this process”. Consequently estrogen related side effects are a much lower concern with this drug. An anti-estrogen is likewise rarely needed with Deca, gynecomastia only a worry among sensitive individuals. At the same time water retention is not a usual concern. This effect can occur however, but is most often related to higher dosages. The addition of Proviron and/or Nolvadex should prove sufficient enough to significantly reduce any occurrence. Clearly Deca is a very safe choice among steroids. Actually, many consider it to be the best overall steroid for a man to use when weighing the side effects and results. It should also be noted that in HIV studies, Deca has been shown not only to be effective at safely bringing up the lean body weight of patient, but also to be beneficial to the immune system.

Testosterone

Testosterone is basically a male sex hormone secreted by the testes and produced by the adrenal gland in both males and females.  It comes in the group of compounds called anabolic steroids. Apart from maintaining male characteristics it also helps stimulate protein synthesis and accounts for muscle growth.

As we age, testosterone production slows down and the body has a decrease in the amount of testosterone that is available in the bloodstream. These reduced levels of testosterone can cause a variety of problems including hair loss, irritability, growth of unwanted body hair in women, a reduced libido, and the inability to maintain all of your muscle mass.

If you want to counteract some of these problems, there are several ways to increase your testosterone levels so that you can look and feel better. Using testosterone supplements for muscle growth and bodybuilding is quite common among bodybuilders and sports persons. It is said to be a potent hormone for muscle growth. That is why sports persons and the young gym brats wanting strong and prominent muscles prefer to use it. It is available in injection, gel, patch and pill forms.

The amount of testosterone supplementation one takes varies from person to person, because the dose is based on the individual’s weight.  But being a steroid, it should not be taken for more than 6 to 8 weeks, as it may hamper the body’s natural testosterone secretion and levels.
