Nandrolone is a synthetic anabolic steroid that is best known for its immense stimulatory effect on muscle growth. Structurally it is very similar to the better known Testosterone. It dramatically decreases the occurrence of alopecia as well as prostate growth, which are both common side effects of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). In addition to muscle growth, nandrolone can have many positive effects on males suffering from hypogonadism. Supplementation of nandrolone in men with hypogonadism will decrease risk factors for cardiovascular disease. These include diabetes, atherosclerosis, dyslipidemia and metabolic syndrome. Nandrolone increases muscle and lean body mass.
Nandrolone decanoate, also known as 19-nortestosterone, is an injectable medication that belongs to the group of drugs called class II anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS). They are all synthetic derivatives of the endogenous male hormone testosterone. The primary role of testosterone in the human male is to aid the development of secondary sexual characteristics (androgenic effects) during puberty and the development as well as maintenance of muscle mass (anabolic effects); drugs, such as Nandrolone decanoate, that fall under the AAS category were synthesized to have more anabolic and less androgenic properties.
Originally synthesized and described by Birch in 1950, nandrolone is similar in chemical composition and structure to testosterone. The only difference in chemical composition between testosterone and nandrolone is that nandrolone lacks a methyl group at carbon C-19. Due to its demethylation at C-19, nandrolone decanoate has very strong anabolic effects but weak androgenic effects; its anabolic effects are much stronger than testosterone.
