Anadur (nandrolone hexyoxyphenylpropionate) is a synthetic anabolic androgenic steroid.
It is among the many forms of the nandrolone family of steroid drugs available today.
It is mainly accessed and used by bodybuilders and athletes looking for accelerated muscle mass gains and athletic performance enhancement.
However, it’s important to know how each specific anabolic androgenic steroid (AAS) works before taking it.
Not only before you risk legal ramifications of purchase without a prescription, but in regard to how it’s used, recommended dosages, and expectations in regard to results.
Anadur, similar in nature to Deca durabolin, is also known by its chemical name: nandrolone hexyoxyphenylpropionate.
This tongue-twister can be broken down a bit: phenylpropionate is an ester.
Esters are often attached to a base drug form, such as nandrolone, to modify its absorption rate as well as half-life.
A simplistic definition of the half-life of the drug often refers to the duration of the activity the drug promotes in the body over time.
However, it should be noted that the term “half-life” actually refers to the length of time that it will take approximately one half of the drugs “activity” to be decreased by approximately one half in the body.
Phenylpropionate is not known as a long-lasting ester; rather it has a relatively short half-life or length of activity following an injection.
Still, phenylpropionate does offer a longer half-life than propionate. For example, nandrolone decanoate (ester) has a half-life lasting roughly 15 days.
Nandrolone phenyl- propionate is quite a bit shorter acting, with a half-life of anywhere between four to five days.
Anadur (nandrolone hexyoxyphenylpropionate) is similar in its activity as well as benefits as Deca durabolin. For bodybuilders and athletes, this means:
Increase and synthesis of red blood cells
Enhanced protein production (proteins serve as the foundation for muscle growth)
Potential increase of insulin-like growth factor-1, a hormone that promotes growth, as well as supports the immune system, and in turn, can promote faster recovery post-workout.
Bodybuilders are often attracted to steroids like Anadur and Deca durabolin because of their low potential for aromatization or conversion of testosterone into estrogen in the male body.
For bodybuilders that means less risk of negative side effects such as gynecomastia, water retention, and bloating.
However, even though Anadur doesn’t particularly have a reputation for aromatization, it can trigger progestational activity in the body.
Progestins act much like estrogens in the male body, so it is important to always watch for associated side effects.
How is Anadur Used?
Anadur, nandrolone hexyoxyphenylpropionate, was often stacked with another form of testosterone to boost results.
By itself, Anadur was reputed to offer slightly more anabolic potency than testosterone, with under half of its androgenic potential.
When stacking with Anadur, bodybuilders typically turned to other steroids including:
The product is not commonly used today, so dosage information and related results are difficult to determine.
Because of the similarity of Anadur to Deca durabolin, bodybuilders often turn to Deca durabolin dosage recommendations.
Anadur dosage recommendations, when comparing to those of Deca durabolin are, as always, a matter of personal preference.
Dosage and frequency of dosage was affected by whether the drug was being used in a bulking or cutting cycle, on season or off-season.
For example, during the off-season, an experienced user might take as much as 300 mg to 400 mg weekly.
In a cutting cycle, Deca was commonly used during the first weeks of the cutting cycle in a dosage range that average 200 mg to 300 mg weekly.
The most popular benefits of the above-mentioned esters, which can be equated with nandrolone decanoate and phenylpropionate, would be for a bulking phase, with moderate results.
The most popular use of Deca however, is for endurance, typically in dosage ranges of 100 mg to 200 mg weekly.
Anadur has a slightly longer half-life than that provided by Deca durabolin.
Anadur Side Effects
Most anabolic androgenic steroids, regardless of “gentleness” do contribute to a number of side effects and for some, adverse reactions.
Side effects can also be linked to dosages. Men often increased the dosage of Anadur up to 500 mg a week, and sometimes even higher.
Use of aromatase inhibitors are typically capable of taking care of mild to moderate side effects of Anadur, making it and components like it fairly popular among male bodybuilders.
Women are cautioned to stick to very low doses not exceeding 50 mg weekly because of the potential for it to virilize or trigger the development of male type sex characteristics.
These include growth of hair on the face, enlarged clitoris, disrupted menstrual cycles, development of acne, and a deeper voice, among others.
Before using Anadur, research nandrolone and its various esters including the nandrolone hexyoxyphenylpropionate form.
This can help potential users to make educated decisions regarding the compound, as well as potential for avoiding undesired reactions.
