Nandrolone Phenyl Propianate (NPP) 100mg
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is an anabolic steroid that is very similar to the popular Nandrolone Decanoate compound Deca Durabolin.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is a small ester base anabolic steroid and is commonly referred to as NPP. This product has never been as popular as the larger ester Decanoate version, in part due to availability; however, in the modern era it has begun to see a resurgence in both use and availability thanks in part due to underground labs.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate carries with it numerous therapeutic and performance benefits. The Nandrolone hormone is the most commonly prescribed anabolic steroid other than testosterone, but the Decanoate version is the most commonly prescribed Nandrolone form. It is one of the most well tolerated steroids in both performance and medical settings.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate carries many positive traits that are similar to many anabolic steroids. However, this compound also carries functional traits that will far outweigh what some steroidal hormones can do. The positive functional traits of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate include:
- Increased IGF-1 Production: Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) is a potent anabolic hormone that is also essential to our body’s ability to recovery. This is a hormone that affects nearly all cells within the human body.
Inhibition of Glucocorticoids: Known as stress hormones (cortisol) these hormones are essential to our health and wellbeing. However, glucocorticoids can also promote muscle loss and fat gain when they become dominant. Vigorous activity can lead to increases in stress hormones. Hormones like Nandrolone can reduce the production of stress hormones.
Increased Nitrogen Retention: All muscle tissue is comprised of 16% nitrogen. If retention falls we fall into a catabolic state. The more we retain the more anabolic we remain.
Increased Protein Synthesis: This refers to the rate in which cells build proteins, the building blocks of muscle tissue.
Increased Red Blood Cell Count: Red blood cells carry oxygen to and through the blood. Greater efficiency results in enhanced muscular endurance and recovery.
Increased Collagen Synthesis & Bone Mineral Content: This refers to the strength of bones and cartilage and the ability to strengthen and provide healing relief. This will hold true in joints more so than anywhere else.
Important Note: It’s often said Nandrolone forces water into the joints, thereby providing relief. This is not physically possible. It is not water, it is the enhancement of collagen synthesis and bone mineral content that provides relief.
In a medical setting standard male Nandrolone Phenylpropionate doses will normally fall in the 50-100mg per week range. For female use, although not commonly prescribed if prescribed it will normally be the 50mg per week range. In almost all medical settings the Decanoate version is what will be prescribed.
For the athlete or bodybuilder doses can vary greatly. 100mg per week will provide significant therapeutic advantage with 200mg per week being more common as this will ensure significantly improved recovery. In most performance circles 300-400mg per week will be the common dosing range, and this is a perfect range for building or preserving muscle tissue. Some will use more, but this will increase the risk of side effects.
Regardless of the dose use the total dose is normally split into three equal injections per week or planned out on an every other day basis for optimal results. 8-12 weeks is the normal period of use for most athletes. The exception is female athletes who may use the steroid for 4-6 weeks and normally at a dose no more than 50mg per week if virilization is to be avoided.
