The same manufacturer, however, points out on the package insert that a positive nitrogen balance and the protein building effect that accompany it will occur only if enough calories and proteins are supplied. One should know this since, otherwise, satisfying results with Deca Durabolin cannot be obtained. The highly anabolic effect of Deca Durabolin is linked to a moderately androgenic component, so that a good gain in muscle mass and strength is obtained.
