Here are some quick points about nandrolone (with links to evidence) you may have never known. Notice I am only linking evidence in humans. As many who read my work know, I will not let a good story get in the way of the truth. Animal models are to be taken with a grain of salt in most cases; but especially in the case of AAS research.
– Nandrolone increased gastrointestinal and renal tubular absorption of calcium and decreased bone reabsorption. This means that deca reduces osteoporosis or increases the rate of bone healing. Fascinating — https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8846659/
– Nandrolone also had the beneficial effects of stimulating the formation of extra-osseous collagen and soft tissue. What this means is that deca increases the repair rate of tendons, ligaments and skin. It may even decrease wrinkles if this repair rate is strong enough — https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/8846659/
– Numerous studies have shown that DHT is the active androgen involved in maintenance of nitric oxide-mediated penile erections. Unfortunately for Deca, we don’t end up with DHT as a result of 5a reductase like we do with testosterone use, we end up with DHN. It is reasonably hypothesised that this overproduction of DHN compared to DHT is the reason why some users report erectile dysfunction with the use of deca. However, in my experience, I see ED and libido issues with Deca quite rarely.
So there you have it. Deca may induce some of the benefits HGH is renowned for, but it may also cause limp dick in some—albeit it seems a small portion of users and is probably dose related. Okay, cool! That’s all for today folks.
