All anabolic steroids have a tendency to reduce HDL (good) cholesterol and increase LDL (bad) cholesterol. The relative impact of an anabolic/androgenic steroid on serum lipids is dependant on the dose, route of administration (oral vs. injectable) type of steroid (aromatizable or non-aromatizable) and level of resistance to hepatic metabolism. With regards to nandrolone at a dose of 600mg per week over 10 weeks demonstrated 26% reduction in HDL cholesterol levels. This suppression is slightly greater than an equal dose of testosterone over an equal period. In other words it shows a slightly more negative impact on HDL/LDL ratio with nandrolone than with testosterone cypionate. It’s always recommended to accompany the use of this product with a low saturated fat diet and a cardiovascular exercise program.
A cutting Deca Durabolin cycle will normally not be built around this Nandrolone hormone, but rather it is a secondary addition. In the cutting phase, this steroid may be added to a total plan in order to promote muscle tissue preservation, but it is most commonly added for the therapeutic effects this steroid can provide. If a cutting Deca Durabolin cycle is implemented, especially if you’re a competitive bodybuilder, you will more than likely want to keep its use at the front end of the total plan and rely solely on hardening agents towards the end. This type of Deca Durabolin cycle cannot be recommended to new steroid users . This type of use will normally be extended beyond what a new steroid user will be comfortable with.
Many athletes, ball players, fighters, and any athlete who could benefit from the therapeutic relief often supplement with Deca Durabolin. Such individuals commonly have no desire to build any new lean muscle mass, but the relief alone is invaluable. Further, such relief can be obtained by a very low dose. A slightly higher dose will provide relief, greatly enhance overall recovery, and enhance muscular endurance. When it comes to performance enhancement, most athletes will find this steroid is hard to beat. More importantly, the relief effects of Deca Durabolin are not masking or false; this anabolic steroid shares nothing in common with over the counter painkillers or prescription painkillers like opiates. Such painkillers only mask the pain, whereas Deca Durabolin can actually heal the body.
