Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is a small ester based anabolic steroid, and many people refer to it as NPP. Since it is a small ester, it didn’t gain the same popularity as the larger ester version, Nandrolone Decanoate did. However, it is still available and it continues to be used by those who get it from underground labs.
There are many benefits from the use of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, both for performance and for therapy. It is the common of all anabolic steroids that is prescribed, with the exception of testosterone. This is because of the benefits it delivers, but also due to it being well tolerated by athletes and those using it for medical needs. There are some side effects but the benefits offered can make them worth it.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is a 19-nortestosterone anabolic androgenic steroid. This means there is a change to the testosterone hormone in the 19th position. This change allows the compound to be created by adding the short Phenylpropionate ester. It is more anabolic than testosterone. The rating is Nandrolone Phenylpropionate at 125 and testosterone at 100. It is also less androgenic with a rating of 37 compared to 100 for testosterone.
The Nandrolone Phenylpropionate reduces DHN rather than DHT which is why it has lower androgenic activity. It also means it can be tolerated well at higher doses than testosterone. However, both of them aromatize. For Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, it is about 20% of the rate for testosterone. It is important to understand it does have a progestin nature and that plays a role in the possible side effects from using it.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is the same as Nandrolone Decanoate in regards to the hormone function. Both of them use the same active hormone, and that is why they are often thought to be the same product. However, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has the shorter ester and that means it gives a burst when it is injected. It also has a shorter half-life. It has to be injected more often to get the levels in the blood to be stable.
