Steroids have their uses---nandrolone is sometimes used, for example, in the treatment of anemia, osteoporosis, chronic kidney disease, and breast cancer. But its ability to mimic testosterone and increase strength and ease of recovery after a workout are what make it a performance-enhancing drug, or PED.
Nandrolone decanoate is approved in the United States specifically for the treatment of anemia of chronic kidney disease and in the United Kingdom specifically for the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women.
But studies show that overuse or misuse of nandrolone or any other anabolic steroid could be bad or dangerous for your health. That's why it's so important to use the drug only by prescription and under a doctor's care.
For the most part, steroidal supplements, which used to be found at health food stores or gyms, are now illegal and require a prescription. DHEA is one of the few exceptions and can still be bought over the counter. Steroid supplements are weaker forms of androgen.
I had never even heard of nandrolone. I have since learned that it has long been understood by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) that eating pork can lead to a false positive for nandrolone, since certain types of pigs produce it naturally in high amounts. Pig organ meat (offal) has the highest levels of nandrolone.
The results showed a significant increase of testosterone levels in the culture medium of R2C cells treated with 3.9 µM of nandrolone, while the levels of this hormone did not change at higher doses (15.6 µM) of nandrolone, compared to basal condition.
nandrolone decanoate has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.
Nandrolone preferentially stimulates growth of skeletal muscle and lean body mass that may provide benefit in reducing components of metabolic syndrome. Moreover, preliminary work on nandrolone has suggested a potential role in the treatment of joint healing, particularly in rotator cuff injuries.
The positive effects of nandrolone esters include muscle growth, appetite stimulation and increased red blood cell production, and bone density. Clinical studies have shown them to be effective in treating anemia, osteoporosis, and breast cancer.
Treatment with nandrolone produced increases of 9.0% and 8.6% in weight and LBM, respectively, in 12 weeks. The increases in weight and LBM with nandrolone use occurred with no statistically significant change in fat mass.
The list of athletes who have been linked with nandrolone is long and diverse, including swimmers, tennis players, mixed martial artists, baseball players, sprinters and football players.
Treatment with human growth hormone costs approximately $27,500 per year at the dosages used in most studies, while nandrolone costs approximately $87 per year. A potential disadvantage of anabolic steroid treatment is the possibility of adverse lipid effects.
