Nandrolone phenylpropionate, known as NPP, is a form of nandrolone with an attached phenylpropionate ester. Another known form of this steroid compound is nandrolone decanoate, also known as deca-durabolin. Although NPP was also called durabolin in the past, this name is avoided these days to avoid confusion between the two forms. NPP has a shorter half-life and therefore requires more frequent injections to maintain stable levels compared to nandrolone decanoate.
Advantages of NPP
Nandrolone is well known for its many positive benefits and effects when used to enhance performance. You will also find that this compound has excellent therapeutic effects, making NPP a quality, versatile steroid that is suitable for a variety of users and purposes.
Preservation of lean muscle mass
The dosage of NPP depends on whether you are using it primarily for therapeutic purposes or to improve results. When using this steroid solely for its therapeutic effects, men can use a dosage of 100 to 200 mg per week and see significant benefits, including significant improvement in recovery and joint relief.
For guys using NPP for bodybuilding, a dosage of up to 400 mg per week is ideal. This is the optimal balance between getting the benefits and minimizing the risk of side effects. Those who are less concerned about side effects may consider increasing the dosage a little more than 400 mg, but for most men using NPP, this will be the optimal dose that will provide excellent results.
Side effects of NPP

Estrogenic side effects
Most men taking Nandrolone Phenylpropionate will be able to prevent or control side effects, and its milder side effect profile makes it an attractive steroid for beginners or those who want to avoid the more serious side effects that can be seen with some other compounds.
Women may find that low doses of NPP do not cause side effects, but this should be monitored closely and the steroid should be stopped immediately if there are signs of virilization.
