First of all, it’s always been Bearenstain, not stein. I remember being a kid and figuring out that I was wrong about it being stein. I think every kid at first thinks its stein for a w hile, and if you don’t eventually figure out that it’s actually stain as a kid then you will probably end up being a weird adult who insists it used to be stein. But what gets me is the collective ignorance surrounding definitions of certain words. The most widely misused is the word ‘moot’. Besides the fact that some people think it’s ‘mute’, the people who refer to ‘moot points’ are referring to points that are no longer relevant because the subject has either already been decided or no longer matters due to other factors. But the actual definition of the word ‘moot’ is exactly the opposite. Moot actually means, “subject to debate, dispute, or uncertainty, and typically not admitting of a final decision.” So a moot point is a point that hasn’t been decided yet, but everyone uses it to mean a point that has been decided. Isn’t that weird? And there are others, like the word ‘peruse’. Most people think that if you’re ‘perusing’ a document it means you’re skimming over it, but ‘peruse’ actually means a thorough reading of a document, rather than a casual one.
Pharmaceutical Name: nandrolone decanoate
Chemical Structure: 17beta-Hydroxyestr-4-en-3-one 17-decanoate
Effective Dose: minimum 400 mg/week
Deca-Durabolin is the brand name of nandrolone decanoate, under which it was first produced by Organon. Today, many generic versions are available, with the same chemical properties but sometimes with different dosage. “Deca” is one of the most popular anabolic steroid among the bodybuilders, although it is almost always used together with other medicaments.
The main advantage of nandrolone is its mild androgenic action. It means it poses lower risk for side-effects like prostate hypertrophy, acne vulgaris or male-pattern baldness. Just as testosterone is forming dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body, which is a strong androgen, nandrolone forms dihydronandrolone (DHN), which is again much milder in its androgenic effects.
Nandrolone is considered to be times more anabolic than testosterone, this, however, doesn’t really mean that your muscles will grow twice as fast or even twice as big when using this hormone. On the contrary, nandrolone is somewhat slow in its action, which is why it is usually stacked with Dianabol, Anadrol, Winstrol or virtually any other steroid.
The most important ways of action of Deca-Durabolin is nitrogen retention enabling amino-acid formation, glycogen storage and growth hormone release. Nandrolone decanoate also causes fluid retention in joints, which means that you will feel less pain in heavy workouts.
