Steroid Information

Deca 200

Deca 200 is one of the most popular anabolic steroids of all time and refers to the commonly known Deca-Durabolin in its 200mg dose. Comprised of the active steroidal hormone Nandrolone and attached to the very large Decanoate ester, Deca 200 is one of the more well-tolerated anabolic steroids we have at our disposal and one that carries immense power as well. Through proper supplemental use this is a perfect steroid for adding mass and not just any mass, were talking lean muscle tissue. Of course it must be noted; by its nature Deca 200 can cause some water retention and as such some of the weight gain will be just that, water weight but this can largely be controlled by proper nutrition and additional Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) can also help. In any case, for adding lean muscle tissue, increasing strength and a host of other benefits, Deca 200 is one of the finest choices we have available.

Deca 200 The Basics:

As stated, Deca 200 is comprised of the active steroidal hormone Nandrolone and attached to the very large Decanoate ester. The Decanoate ester does not affect the steroidal hormones direct mode of action but it does affect its the manner by-which it functions in-terms of total active duration and to a degree even initial activity.

Nandrolone is a 19-nor class anabolic steroid that is very anabolic with a moderate androgenic nature. By its nature the Nandrolone hormone, a hormone produced naturally by the body, although in small amounts carries many benefits that are important to our function and of great importance to the performance enhancer. As Deca 200 is simply Nandrolone the following largely defines its mode of action and benefits within:

  • Increases Nitrogen Retention
  • Increases Hemoglobin Levels
  • Increases Anabolic Activity
  • Increases IGF-1 Production
  • Increases Metabolic Activity
  • Increases Collagen Synthesis

As a Nandrolone-Decanoate compound, because the Decanoate ester is so large taking up a massive amount of the total compounds mass, Deca 200 carries a very long half-life. The half-life of Deca 200 is approximately 15 days; a 15 day half-life is one of the longest of any anabolic androgenic steroid. Due to the Decanoate ester being so large the benefits of the hormone will normally not present themselves in a pronounced manner until approximately 4 weeks of use have passed. Further, as such a large ester base steroid the effects will continue to manifest several weeks after use has been discontinued. Moreover, as a long half-life steroid Deca 200 can be injected only once per week if desired; in-fact, every 10 days could be sufficient for some. If you are dosing only 1cc (200mg) per injection you could easily inject only once every 7-10 days; however, as many performance enhancers will supplement with larger amounts many find twice weekly injections to be beneficial in-order to keep each injection smaller and provide more continuously stable levels of the hormone in the body.

Deca 200 Cycles:

To reap a reward and the benefits within youre going to need to know how to cycle Deca 200 in-order to maximize your gains. Generally speaking, as this is such a slow acting steroid you will need to supplement for a decent amount of time in-order to allow the hormone to build in your system and provide benefits. As a rule of thumb 8 weeks of use will be our minimal time frame with 12 weeks being far more efficient; we can supplement with Deca 200 for as long as 16 weeks but if your total cycle exceeds this time frame its usually best to substitute in another anabolic steroid so as to keep the body fresh and in a maximizing progressing working order. We have provided you some solid Deca 200 cycle examples; one for a beginner, one intermediate and one for the advanced performance enhancer. All three are well-suited for off-season gains and can even be used when dieting if food intake is proper.

testosterone but substituting the Propionate form will allow for a smoother transition into PCT after such a harsh cycle

- If libido issues occur you may need to adjust your Test:Deca ratios by moderately increasing the Testosterone or moderately lowering the Deca

  • Anadrol can be a solid option in place of Dianabol
  • Level 3: Testosterone-Propionate does not have to be used, you can continue your large ester
