NPP is also known as Nandrolone Phenylpropionate. It is an anabolic androgen and was primarily developed to be used for treating cancer patients as well as HIV patients. It is known to be effective in improving weakness and fatigue in elderly while also treats anemia, burn injuries, ulcers, and osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It is known to be an effective drug when used for clinical purposes as well as for bodybuilders.
The bodybuilders discovered NPP as a beneficial addition to their steroid cycles. It is known to encourage muscle enhancement by combining it with testosterone propionate in the background. Not only that, it works at its best when other anabolic steroids are mixed with it. It is intramuscularly injected which requires an expert’s involvement. Individuals who have pre-existing health issues must check in with a medical expert who can guide them on how to involve this drug in their steroid cycle.
Following are the benefits of NPP:
- Increased strength.
- Fast acting half-life.
- Increased bone strength.
- Low estrogenic activity.
- Aids relief in joint pain.
- Increase protein synthesis.
- Heals and repairs damaged tissues.
- Muscular endurance and recovery.
- Retains less water weight than decanoate.
- Reduce the production of stress hormones.
- Keep more muscle tissue by increasing nitrogen retention.
The recommended dosage for beginners is 100mg per week and then gradually increase the dosage to 200mg per week. It is always best to start with lower dosage to observe how the body reacts to the steroid.
Some professional athletes and bodybuilders can safely consume as high as 300-400mg per week especially if they have developed a tolerance for the drug at lower dosages.
Dosage for women is same as that for men but it depends on the users and their tolerance.
