Nilevar is the most common associated trade name for the anabolic steroid Norethandrolone, an extremely rare anabolic steroid. Brought to us by Searle in the 1950ís, this was the pharmaceutical companyís answer to Dianabol (Methandrostenolone). Dianabol was the steroid brought to the market by Ciba and administered to the U.S. Olympic Team adding them in defeating the Soviet Union. Since that time, Dianabol has remained a favorite of many performance enhancing athletes, but Nilevar would not share the same fate.
Despite being Searleís answer to Dianabol, Nilevar is far more similar to another popular anabolic steroid Nandrolone. You may know Nandrolone best by its association with Deca Durabolin. In many ways, Nilevar will provide the same traits as the Nandrolone hormone, and this isnít surprising once we begin to understand it. Both compounds are 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic steroids, both carry strong progestin natures and a rate of aromatase of about 20% that of testosterone. Further, both share the same protein synthesis and nitrogen retention traits, as well as the therapeutic benefits that come with increased bone mineral content and collagen synthesis.
The largest or most significant difference in Nilevar and the more popular Nandrolone hormone rest in its state of administration and corresponding hepatotoxicity. Nilevar is an oral anabolic steroid that is C17-alpha alkylated (C17-aa), and as a result carries a significant hepatotoxic nature. As for Nandrolone, it is not a C17-aa steroid, but rather an injectable steroid that carries no liver toxic effects. As this is the case, itís normally not a good idea to use Nilevar for long periods of time if the liver is to be protected.
Primarily used as a bulking agent, Nilevar has the ability to add quality mass to your frame slowly and steadily producing nice even gains. It is not a fast acting steroid like most oral compounds that carry mass producing traits; it must be used for decent amounts of time to see such benefits. This simply isnít a good idea due to the hepatotoxicity, and for this reason among others, it wasnít too long before Searle pulled the product and began focusing on the Oxandrolone (Anavar) hormone.
Due to its described nature, Nilevar is best used for short periods of time in order to provide a slight increase in mass. However, itís also a good choice for athletes who are looking for some therapeutic benefits during a time when theyíre worn down. Through such use, the body will experience a healing effect and muscular endurance will be enhanced, thereby, producing a more efficient athlete. While these represent the best times of use, some will choose to use Nilevar for long periods of time despite its hepatotoxicity, and it can undoubtedly provide some significant muscle tissue growth.
Nilevar is not a steroid that should be used by women. Carrying a mild androgenic rating to say the least, its androgenic effects are too strong if the female wants to avoid virilization symptoms. Women who use this steroid will almost certainly display masculinization symptoms, and such effects can destroy a womanís femininity. As for men, the side effects of Nilevar will always be a concern; however, they can be controlled. You will need to put in effort to control both estrogenic and progestin related side effects, and through our discussion you will find such remedies provided.
Despite Searle no longer manufacturing the steroid, Nilevar can still be found in a few select markets. This is not an anabolic steroid currently made by any U.S. pharmacy, and it is almost never found in black market brands. There are a few areas in Europe that carry it, such as in France, but it is most commonly found in Australia as a veterinarian grade anabolic steroid.
