Deca-Durabolin (Nandrolone Decanate)
is highly anabolic and only moderately androgenic. It works by promoting
a positve nitrogen balance in the body which causes the muscles to be able
to use more protein, more efficiently than normal. It does this by
causing the muscle cells to store more nitrogen than they are releasing.
With this positive nitrogen balance, the muscle cells will be able to use
more protein than they usually can.
