Deca is the name of the injectable steroid Nandrolone, with an anabolic active composition of Decanoate. The first publication about Deca appeared in 1960, it was developed and distributed by the pharmaceutical company called Organon. In 1962, the product was already sold on the drug markets under the brand Deca-Durabolin. Soon after the start of production, Nandrolone, due to its favorable qualities, became the second most popular and most widely used anabolic steroid ever, second only to Methandrostenolone (Danabol).
Nandrolone is perfectly used in medicine, it is prescribed for building muscle mass after periods of atrophy, treating osteoporosis, cancer, breast cancer, weight loss caused by the disease. The drug perfectly restores the body after serious injuries and operations, burns, ulcers, anemia and makes great progress in the growth development of children with developmental difficulties. Like most of the anabolic steroids in the early 90s, Deca became unnecessary in medicine due to new developments of treatment drugs that were less harmful. Some pharmaceutical corporations resumed production after a short period of cessation, and after 2-3 years, Nandrolone Decanoate became popular in sports fields.
In general, the effect of this steroid is a gradual increase in muscle mass during the entire course and some time after the course. With Deca, muscle growth occurs slowly but steadily, with little water retention. Unlike many steroids, an athlete who has completed a Deca course will not lose his kilograms for a long time.
Judging by the reviews, the drug is able to relieve pain and stress from the joints. Athletes note that it becomes easier to work with large weights for the second week. Thanks to water retention, the joints are well lubricated, reducing the risk of serious injuries.
