Nandrolone Phenylpropionate (NPP) is a 19-nortestosterone (19-nor) anabolic androgenic steroid and very similar to Nandrolone Decanoate from the point of view of hormone`s function. The distinction is that Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has a shorter ester version which gives a larger burst of Nandrolone after injection. More, it has a shorter half-life, such that it has to be injected more frequently than Nandrolone Decanoate.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has numerous therapeutic and performance benefits. The Nandrolone hormone is the most commonly prescribed anabolic steroid, excepting Testosterone. The treatment with NPP boosts up the synthesis of collagen and the content of bone minerals, resulting in stronger cartilage and bones. Thus, it can help patients recover from different problems that may occur. In addition, it is used by patients with HIV and cancer, helping them with fatigue and muscle wasting illnesses.
Principally, athletes and bodybuilders use Nandrolone Phenylpropionate for cutting cycles, but its benefits are stronger recognized for bulking cycles and in the off-season. The steroid provides a significant increase in muscle mass. However, it is important to know that, even though it has a fast-acting, muscle growth happens regularly over the cycle. To enjoy the maximal benefits of NPP, steroid users need to have a proper diet and to consume a lot of calories. In addition, it reduces pain, and contributes to the elasticity of tendons and ligaments, making NPP a must-have for powerlifters.
Even though it is one of the most well-tolerated steroids in the performance-enhancing context, side effects aren`t excluded:
- water retention;
- an increase in blood pressure;
- oily skin and acne;
- body and facial hair growth;
- baldness, if already prone to hair loss;
As with other steroids, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate causes virilization when used by women: deepening of the voice, enlargement of the clitoris, hair growth, and menstrual irregularities.
