History of NPP and Overview
Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is an anabolic steroid that is very similar to the popular Rus Bio Nandrolone Decanoate compound. However, Rus Bio 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.
Rus Bio 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.Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate carries with it numerous therapeutic and performance benefits. The Nandrolone hormone is the most commonly prescribed anabolic steroid other than Testosterone, but the Decanoate version is the most commonly prescribed Nandrolone form. It is one of the most well tolerated steroids in both performance and medical settings, although possible side effects most certainly exist.
Rus Bio NPP Side Effects
There are several possible side effects of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate use, but it is also one of the more side effect friendly. The key to managing and avoiding side effects is understanding how they occur and proper use of the hormone. For most men serious side effects should be completely avoidable. In order to understand the side effects of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate we have broken them down into their individual categories.
Estrogenic side effects of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate are possible. Estrogenic side effects of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate include gynecomastia, water retention and high blood pressure caused by severe water retention. These side effects can be avoided by the use of an Aromatase Inhibitor (AI) such as Anastrozole.
The reason for estrogenic side effects is due to the Nandrolone hormone aromatizing. Aromatization refers to the conversion of testosterone to estrogen. However, the rate of aromatization with this hormone isn’t high, but high enough to cause issues in some men. It is also a progestin, and progesterone can activate the mammary tissue and promote gynecomastia in very sensitive men. Estrogenic or progesterone based, AI’s will provide the needed protection.
There are possible androgenic side effects of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, but they are not extremely likely in men. Hair loss in men predisposed to male pattern baldness is possible as is acne in sensitive men. However, when it comes to such effects this is one of the most well tolerated steroids of all. Genetic predispositions will play the largest role.
Important Note: The use of a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor will not reduce the androgenicity of Nandrolone; in fact, it will increase it and should be avoided.
Although not extremely androgenic the Nandrolone hormone can promote virilization symptoms in women. Virilization symptoms may include body hair growth, a deepening of the vocal chords and clitoral enlargement. Some women can use low doses without issue, but if symptoms occur use should be discontinued immediately. If discontinued at the onset of symptoms they will fade away. If symptoms are ignored and use continues they may become irreversible.
Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate can have a negative impact on HDL cholesterol (good cholesterol) and it can be somewhat more significant than testosterone. This negative effect may be exasperated by the use of an AI.
It is more than possible to use Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate without cholesterol issues or cardiovascular incident, but a healthy lifestyle is imperative. Regular cardiovascular activity is important as is a cholesterol friendly lifestyle.
The use of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate will suppress natural testosterone production. As with all Nandrolone compounds, one injection will suppress nearly if not all your natural testosterone production. Your genetics will not prevent this and it is something that’s completely unavoidable with use. Because of this fact, it is imperative that all men who use this steroid do so in conjunction with some form of exogenous testosterone. This will prevent the individual from falling into a low testosterone condition, which comes with a host of very undesirable symptoms.
Once the use of Rus Bio Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has been discontinued and all anabolic steroids have cleared the body, natural testosterone production will begin again. However, it will not occur overnight and will come slowly. Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) is recommended. This will help stimulate the production of natural testosterone and increase the odds of a successful recovery. PCT will not complete recovery, it will still take several months post PCT, but it will give you a better start.
Important Note: Natural recovery assumes no damage was done to the Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular-Axis (HPTA) during use and that no prior low testosterone condition existed.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is not toxic to the liver.
