Nandrolone decanoate, also known as “Deca” or 19-nortestosterone, is an androgen and anabolic steroid which is used in the form of esters such as decanoate and phenylpropionate.

Nandrolone esters are used in the treatment of anemias, cachexia, osteoporosis, breast cancer, and for other indications.

Does nandrolone increase testosterone?

Nandrolone is a testosterone derivative, known as one of the most commonly used androgens and anabolic steroids (AAS) to improve athletes physical performance exhibiting strong anabolic effects and weak androgenic effects.

How Can You Benefit From Nandrolone?

Deca preferentially stimulates growth of skeletal muscle and lean body mass that may provide benefit in reducing components of metabolic syndrome.

Moreover, preliminary work on nandrolone has suggested a potential role in the treatment of joint healing.

  • Gain in muscle mass
  • Faster muscle recovery rates
  • Increase red blood cell production
  • Boost testosterone levels
  • Retaining nitrogen levels

What Is Deca Used For?

Doctors sometimes prescribe nandrolone for illnesses and injuries including:

  • Burns
  • Allergic reactions
  • Eye injuries, especially to the cornea
  • Brittle bones (osteoporosis)
  • Body wasting (cachexia)
  • Anemia from cancer
  • Appetite loss from cancer
  • Prostate and breast cancers

Steroids help healing, in part, because they lessen the activity of the immune system. Your body fights infection and germs with white blood cells and other chemicals that can lead to inflammation.

By reducing this immune activity, steroids can lessen inflammation and tissue damage, as well. The downside is that it can raise your risk of infection.
