Nandrolone is an anabolic steroid that belongs to the 19-nortestosterone family. As a matter of fact, it is chemically identical to testosterone, with only one difference – it lacks one carbon at the 19th position are also frequently called 19-nor compounds.
Unlike testosterone, which is converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) by the 5-alpha reductase enzyme, nandrolone transforms into a weaker androgen – dihydronandrolone. This does not allow the stronger chemical DHT to bind to the androgen receptors, which causes suppression of natural testosterone production. It is recommended to use nandrolone based steroids in conjunction with testosterone.
Aromatization of nandrolone is miniscule and it has a very low estrogen conversion rate, which is according to studies five times slower than that of testosterone. At high dosages estrogenic side effects are controllable, with aromatase inhibitors (AI) as Aromasin / Arimidex.
Nandrolone has a strong binding affinity to the progesterone receptors so progestine related side effects can occur. These effects can resemble very much those of estrogen. Proviron and Nolvadex can assist with the prevention of this. Nandrolone is slightly more anabolic than testosterone and less androgenic.
Nandrolone has been used to treat anemia. It has the ability to boost red blood cell production, which delivers the oxygen to the muscles. Nandrolone is known to increase collagen production in the body, and can assist with troublesome joints. Nandrolone increases nitrogen retention which preserves muscle fibers.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is known to be a steroid with relatively mild side effects. Due to moderate androgenic activity, NPP has less androgenic side effects, such as oily skin, body/facial hair growth, and male pattern baldness.
NPP can be suppressive on the naural testosterone levels. HCG and Clomid are recommended post cycle. These will boost natural testosterone production.
The average dose of NPP for men is 300 milligrams (mgs) per week. NPP should be administered at 100mg every other day. Cycle duration for this short acting ester should be around 10 weeks. Interestingly, unlike men, who do NPP injections 2-3 times per week, women need to do just one. It is best not to exceed 50-60 milligrams (mgs) per week.
