DECA-100 is destinated for intramuscular injection and is made by Global Anabolic, Europe. This steroid drug contains Nandrolone Decanoate.
DECA-100 is a brand name of Global Anabolic, the manufacturer of the drug containing the substance Nandrolone Decanoate. Although Nandrolone Decanoate is still contained in many generic compounds, almost every athlete connects this substance with Nandrolone Decanoate. Most common are the administrations of 50 mg/ml and 100 mg/ml. DECA-100 is the most widespread and most commonly used injectable steroid. Its popularity is due to the simple fact that it exhibits many very favorable properties. Structurally Nandrolone is very similar to Testosterone.
DECA-100 is a favorite to thousands of steroid users. In our recent survey, it was revealed that Nandrolone Decanoate is the most widely used anabolic steroid. It is easy on the liver and promotes good size and strength gains while reducing body fat.
DECA-100 causes the muscle cell to store more nitrogen than it releases so that a positive nitrogen balance is achieved. A positive nitrogen balance is synonymous with muscle growth since the muscle cell, in this phase, assimilates (accumulates) a larger amount of protein than usual. The same manufacturer, however, points out on the package insert that a positive nitrogen balance and the protein building effect that accompany it will occur only if enough calories and proteins are supplied. One should know this since, otherwise, satisfying results with DECA-100 cannot be obtained.
The highly anabolic effect of DECA-100 is linked to a moderately androgenic component, so that a good gain in muscle mass and strength is obtained. At the same time, most athletes notice considerable water retention which, no doubt, is not as distinct as that with injectable testosterones but which in high doses can also cause a smooth and watery appearance.
Since DECA-100 also stores more water in the connective tissues, it can temporarily ease or even cure existing pain in joints. This is especially good for those athletes who complain about pain in the shoulder, elbow, and knee, they can often enjoy pain-free workouts during treatment while using DECA-100. Another reason for this is that it blocks the cortisone receptors thus allowing less cortisone to reach the muscle cells and the connective tissue cells. Athletes use this steroid, depending on their needs, for muscle buildup and in preparation for a competition.
It is suitable, even above average, to develop muscle mass since it promotes the protein synthesis and simultaneously leads to water retention. The optimal dose for this purpose lies between 200 and 600 mg per week. Scientific research has shown that best results can be obtained by the intake of 2 mg per pound of body weight. Those who take a dose of less than 200 mg per week will usually feel only a very light anabolic effect which, however, increases with a higher dosage.
The anabolic and consequent buildup effect of DECA-100, up to a certain degree, depends on the dosage. In the range of approx. 200 to 600 mg per week, the anabolic effect increases almost proportionately to the dosage increase. If more than 600 mg per week are administered, the relationship of the positive to the negative effects shifts in favor of the latter.
In addition, at a dosage level above 600 mg per week, the anabolic effect no longer increases proportionately to the dosage increase, so that 1000 mg per week do not guarantee significantly better results than 600 mg per week.
Most male athletes experience good results by taking 400 mg per week. Steroid novices usually need only 200 mg per week.
DECA-100 works very well for muscle buildup when combined with Dianabol (D-bol) and Testoviron Depot. The famous Dianabol (D-bol)/DECA-100 stack results in a a fast and strong gain in muscle mass. Most athletes usually take 15 – 40 mg Dianabol (D-bol)/day and 200-400 mg DECA-100 per week. Even faster results can be achieved with 400 mg DECA-100 per week and 500 mg Sustanon per week. Athletes report an enormous gain in strength and muscle mass when taking 400 mg DECA-100 per week, 500 mg Sustanon per week, and 30 mg Dianabol per day. DECA-100 is a good basic steroid which, for muscle buildup, can be combined with many other steroids. Although it is not an optimal steroid when preparing for a competition, many athletes also achieve good results during this phase. Since DECA-100 is a long-term anabolic, there is risk that with a higher dosage, the competing athlete will retain too much water. A conversion into estrogen, that means an aromatizing process, is possible with deca durabolin but usually occurs only at a dose of 400 mg per week.
During competitions with doping tests DECA-100 must not be taken since the metabolites in the body can be proven in a urine analysis up to 18 months later. Those who do not fear testing can use DECA-100 as a high-anabolic basic compound in a dosage of 400 mg per week. The androgens contained in 400 mg per week also help to accelerate the body’s regeneration.
Side effects with this steroid are relatively low with dosages of 400 mg per week, androgenic caused side effects can occur. Most problems manifest themselves in high blood pressure and a prolonged time for blood clotting, which can cause frequent nasal bleeding and prolonged bleeding of cuts, as well as increased production of the sebaceous gland and occasional acne. Some athletes also report headaches and sexual overstimulation. When very high dosages are taken over a prolonged period, spermatogenesis can be inhibited in men, the testes produce less testosterone. The reason is that DECA-100, like almost all steroids, inhibits the release of gonadotropins from the hypophysis.
Women with a dosage of up to 100 mg per week usually experience no major problems with DECA-100. At higher dosages androgenic-caused virilization symptoms can occur, including deep voice (irreversible), increased growth of body hair, acne, increased libido, and possibly clitorishypertrophy. Since most female athletes get on well with DECA-100 a dose of 50 mg per week is usually combined with Anavar 10 mg per day. Both compounds, when taken in a low dosage, are only slightly androgenic so that masculinizing side effects only rarely occur. DECA-100, through its increased protein synthesis, also leads to a net muscle gain and Anavar, based on the increased phosphocreatine synthesis, leads to a measurable strength gain with very low water retention. Other variations of administration used by female athletes are DECA-100 and Winstrol tablets, as well as DECA-100 and Primobolan.
