- bone reinforcement
- Eliminate joint pain by increasing the production of synovial fluid (joint lubrication)
- An increase in red blood cell mass, which results in improved oxygen transport.

Nandrolone has a low incidence of side effects. Due to the low androgenic activity, side effects such as acne, baldness and hair growth are practically non-existent. However, they are possible, as with the use of any steroid, but in the case of Nandrolone, this only occurs when the recommended doses are exceeded several times.
Retabolil has a very low conversion rate to estrogen, as studies have shown it to be 5 times lower than testosterone. The highest level of conversion is observed in the liver, while the main site of conversion (adipose tissue) remains inaccessible to this process. As a result, Deca Durabolin has no side effects associated with estrogen (gynecomastia, fluid buildup in the body). The estrogenic activity of the drug is manifested only at very high doses.
