Deca Durabolin is Nandrolone Decanoate ester. It is a synthetic androgenic anabolic steroid derived from 19-nortestosterone. Of all anabolic androgenic steroids, Deca Durabolin and Trenbolone have the greatest anabolic and androgenic effects. It was initially used for treatment of anemia and to increase muscle mass gain in catabolic diseases. It is nowadays one of the most sought after steroids for bodybuilders and athletes who are looking to gain muscle mass at a faster rate and to improve their overall performance. Deca Durabolin stacks are available for greater synergistic effects and better gains.
Although not really a bulking steroid, stacking with other steroids gives this effect. Deca Durabolin can be stacked with any anabolic steroids. It can be stacked with Anadrol for the off season. Anadrol kick starts the muscle gain while Deca Durabolin effects come in slower. It can be used veteran steroid users during a mid cycle of another steroid stack as well. This is associated with potential side effects especially for beginners.
Deca Durabolin is combined with Dianabol to give one of the most efficient and commonly used stacks. Combinations of Deca with Anavar are not common due to the less significant benefits associated with the stack. The Anavar stack does not lead to bulking or cutting but just maintaining the body physique. Deca Durabolin can also be combined with Winstrol and although this stack resembles that of Deca and Anavar, it is associated with fewer side effects.
Like other anabolic steroids, Deca Durabolin should be combined with an exogenous source of testosterone. This stack can also be used for bulking during an off-season. With anabolic steroid use, there is suppression of the body’s production of testosterone. People on anabolic steroids have to therefore supplement with testosterone so as to combat the side effects that usually result from testosterone suppression.
Because it does not undergo aromatization, Deca Durabolin does not cause estrogenic side effects. It is also associated with absence of water retention that is associated with other anabolic steroids. This leads to no increases in blood pressure as a result of water retention. Like other steroids, correct dosage and use is associated with minimal side effects.
