Nandrolone Decanoate is an injectable form of Nandrolone. The decanoate ester provides slow release of nandrolone from the injection site, lasting up to three weeks. Nandrolone is very similar to testosterone in the structure, although it lacks a carbon atom at the 19th position (hence its other name, 19nortestosterone). Like testosterone, nandrolone has relatively strong anabolic properties. However, unlike testosterone, its tissue forming activity is accompanied by low androgenic properties. Much of this has to do with reducing nandrolone to a weaker steroid, dihydronandrolone, in the same androgen-sensitive target tissues that potentiate the action of testosterone (by converting it to DHT). The mild properties of nandrolone decanoate have made it one of the most popular injectable steroids in the world, highly favored by athletes for its ability to promote significant strength and lean muscle gains without androgenic or estrogenic side effects. Nandrolone decanoate causes a sharp increase in nandrolone release 24 to 48 hours after deep intramuscular injection, which steadily declines to baseline approximately two weeks later. The mean half-life of de-release of nandrolone decanoate is 8 days.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
The usual dosage for physical or performance enhancing purposes is the range of 200 to 600 mg per week, taken in cycles of 8 to 12 weeks in length. This level is enough for most users to notice measurable gains in lean muscle mass and strength.
