Becoming a bodybuilder is a task of mammoth proportions. It requires a muscular body, long and hard work in a gym, inclination and the commitment. For some, this is easy and they have become bodybuilders and some of them have reached the top also. But for those who don’t have a muscular body, help can come from medicines. There are many steroids which can help and Nandrolone and its derivatives stand out amongst all the steroids for its efficiency. The derivatives or generics are called Nandrolone Decanoate (Deca Durabolin) and Nandrolone Phenylpropionate (Durabolin). In most cases, being a steroid, this available via prescription only but an underground lab called British Dragon markets the drug called Decabol 250 without aprescription and is based out of Thailand. Hence, users have to use an online store to buy.
Nandrolone is an Anabolic Androgenic Steroid (AAS) which is in a 5-alpha-reductase state. And it is available as intramuscular injections of various dosages. The esters of the drug when injected, form a depot and slowly releases the steroid into blood circulation. This has the effect of a longer half-life and effects are that much active. On metabolism, it is metabolized into 5-alpha Dihydronandrolone with a much weaker form of androgenic properties. This makes the drug not potentiated in androgenic tissues like skin, hair and prostate but exerts its anabolic properties. This results in increased red blood cell production, muscle mass and bone density. Medical grade Nandrolone is used to treat anemia, osteoporosis and for breast cancer. Bodybuilders use the British Dragon injectable Decabol 250 in a much higher dosage for muscle growth and to increase strength.
Dosage & Cycles
When taking medicine, dosage plays an important role for correct results. So is the case with bodybuilding. Another important point while taking any steroid is to start low and increase the dose as time progresses assessing the improvement or result. This will ensure that side effects do not strike all at once and allow the body to adjust the steroid. Beginners should start with a 200-400 mg per week injections for a period of 8-12 weeks. Intermediate and advanced users can raise the limit to 400-600 mg or even higher. But once a cycle is complete, users should refrain from the steroid so as to allow the body to become normal. Excess usage or very high doses are not recommended. Women should desist from the drug but in case it is compulsory, the dose should be limited to 25-50mg per week only.
Being one of the strongest steroids, side effects are inevitable. Both men and women are very much vulnerable to the side effects. After metabolism, the drug aromatizes into estrogen, the female hormone. Due to this, gynecomastia occurs in men. In these cases, anti-aromatizing medicines like Clomiphene can be used. Women who even slightly exceed the dosage can experience masculinity and other negative effects like irregular menstrual cycles, virility, deeper voice, hair loss or baldness and enlarged clitoris. Using British Dragon injectable Decabol 250, men can reduce the chances of erectile dysfunction which is the case with other nandrolone drugs.
