Alpha NPP contains Nandrolone Phenylpropionate (Methandriol Dipropionate)
Alpha NPP (Nandrolone Phenylpropionate) is an anabolic steroid that is very similar to the popular Nandrolone Decanoate compound. However, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate was the first Nandrolone compound ever commercially sold. Nandrolone Phenylpropionate hit the shelves in the 1950’s and was brought to the market by Organon under the name Durabolin. Soon after Organon would release its Decanoate cousin under the name 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 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.
There are positive attributes of all anabolic steroids, and Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is no exception. However, it also exceeds what so many of the other products out there can offer, and that is why it continues to be a go to product in the medical community as well as among athletes. These additional functions include:
- Increased bone mineral content
- Increased collagen
- Increased IGF-1 production
- Increased nitrogen
- Increased protein synthesis
- Increased red blood cells
- Reduces Glucocorticoids
A lose dose of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate can help an athlete to recovery from workouts faster. It can also joint relief and that means they can continue to push their body to the limits. Being able to get such benefits without relying on pain killers is encouraging. Some athletes find they gain in the area of overall strength too, but that shouldn’t be the top reason to use Nandrolone Phenylpropionate.
DOSAGE & INSTRUCTIONS
Nandrolone is an injectable anabolic steroid. For medical purposes the Decanoate version is most commonly prescribed with dosing falling in the 100mg per 1-2 week range for base therapeutic needs and 100-200mg per week for the treatment of anemia and some muscle wasting diseases. The 100-200mg per week range is all most will need, medically or performance based in order to receive the recovery and pain relief benefits. For an anabolic boost, 300mg per week is the common low end dose with 400-600mg per week being fairly common. 400mg per week is as high as most athletes will go and most all they will need, but some do go higher. It’s always important to remember that the higher the dose the greater risk of negative side effects. For most users, technically because of its long half-life one injection per week will work but splitting it into two equal size smaller injections per week is more efficient.
Although short ester versions are not as common in medical circles, such as Nandrolone Phenylpropionate (Durabolin, NPP) they are sometimes used. 50-100mg per week is the common dosing level. 300-400mg per week is common among athletes for off-label use. Such individuals will need to split the injections into a minimum three injections per week with every other day being the most efficient. It is not very common to use NPP in a solo cycle. This steroid is usually stacked with other compounds when creating a cutting or bulking cycle. When NPP is used on its own, it is very important to incorporate some form of exogenous testosterone in your cycle.
Below, we outlined a ten week cycle with NPP. Remember to incorporate testosterone in your cycle at a dose of at least 400mg per week. Typically, NPP cycles run between eight and twelve weeks depending on the individual. Remember to divide your dose equally and inject every Monday and Thursday.
|1||200-400mg per week|
|2||200-400mg per week|
|3||200-400mg per week|
|4||200-400mg per week|
|5||200-400mg per week|
|6||200-400mg per week|
|7||200-400mg per week|
|8||200-400mg per week|
|9||200-400mg per week|
|10||200-400mg per week|
A more advanced cycle of NPP will allow users to up the dosage. This cycle can last up to twelve weeks or it can be cut short for six weeks with dramatic results. Of course, the use of testosterone is highly recommended. Most will run testosterone propionate at around 500mg per week with this cycle.
|1||400-800mg per week|
|2||400-800mg per week|
|3||400-800mg per week|
|4||400-800mg per week|
|5||400-800mg per week|
|6||400-800mg per week|
POST CYCLE THERAPY
Some may start PCT as early as two or three days after the last pill or injection is taken. Start times are not set in stone and will vary from person to person depending on the length of the cycle and what steroids were taken at what dosages. Obviously, with a longer cycle, you’ll need a longer recovery period of PCT. Common PCT cycles after using Nandrolone Phenylpropionate last four weeks and begin three weeks after your last NPP injection.
PCT uses either Clomid or Nolvadex although some individuals will use both during this time. Clomid and Nolvadex both come with side effects that may include headaches, nausea and upset stomach. These side effects will vary from person to person depending on his/her tolerance level. Whether choosing one over the other or choosing to use both for PCT, it’s common to start with higher doses of both drugs and taper the dosage down until PCT comes to an end.
Of all the anabolic steroids on the market, Nandrolone is one of the most side effect friendly that’s ever hit the shelf. Women can also benefit from this hormone but normally only at low therapeutic levels. However, there are possible side effects of Nandrolone use, but they will largely surround dosing and genetic predispositions. Most healthy adult men should not have any issue with proper and responsible use.
Please we urge you to contact your physician and do thorough research before starting any type of diet, exercise program, supplement program, drug therapy or if you feel that you may have an existing medical condition.
