Deca Nandrolone is considered by some people to be the ‘king’ of anabolic steroids. That is to say that it can effectively increase muscle hypertrophy by orders of magnitude while also presenting fewer risks than some of the competition.
That’s not to say it is safe of course. As an illegal steroid, Deca still comes with a lot of very serious warnings and you should do a lot of soul searching before deciding to go this route. We’ll look at alternatives to Deca later on but in the meantime let’s explore just how it exerts its anabolic effects and what makes it different from other options.
What is Deca?
Nandrolone Decanoate as it is technically known, is a substance that works through the process of converting nandrole (or dihydronandrolone) into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). Dihydrotestosterone is closely related to testosterone and has all the same anabolic effects such as increasing muscle mass, burning fat and elevating aggression and sex drive.
In fact, DHT is actually considered to be stronger than testosterone by most and this one of the things that makes Deca appealing.
On top of that, Nandrolone is also safer in a number of ways. This is partly because it skips the testosterone pat of the equation. One of the biggest worries with testosterone elevating substances for instance is that all the extra testosterone can be metabolized into oestrogen. In most cases, raising the male hormone also raises the female hormone and this in turn can cause men to develop breasts – a condition known as gynecomastia. Testosterone turning into oestrogen can also be a problem because it causes water retention and makes muscle look flabbier and less firm. In fact, Deca is often taken by post menopausal women as a way to treat joint pain!
But none of these things are a concern with DHT.
What’s more, is that DHT can also be taken orally. This is because there is less liver toxicity with Deca and that is a big relief for many guys who hate the idea of having to inject themselves regularly and leave permanent scars.
But there are also some significant risks associated with Deca. For one, Nandrolone can increase blood pressure which can be dangerous for the heart. It can also lead to impaired hearing, acne, hostility/aggression and reduced sperm production.
Worst of all though is impotence – which is so common it has it’s own name: ‘Deca dick’!
While Deca isn’t as harsh on the liver, this is still a concern. And what’s more is that it can permanently impair natural testosterone production.
All in all, this is a very big risk still and if you want to avoid ‘Deca dick’ (which you probably do), it’s a good idea to look elsewhere.
One good option to consider is Deckadrolone from Crazy Mass. This product is designed to mimic the effects of Deca by raising DHT but it does so using natural herbs, extracts, and minerals. The result is something that has comparable effects but is completely safe, legal and healthy. And there’s no Deca dick!
