Nandrolone Phenylpropionate by Hilma Biocare is an injectable steroid containing 100mg per ML of the hormone nandrolone phenylpropionate. Nandrolone phenylpropionate is an injectable form of the anabolic steroid nandrolone. The properties of this drug are strikingly similar to those of Deca-Durabolin, which uses the slower acting drug nandrolone decanoate. The primary difference between these two preparations is the speed in which nandrolone is released into the blood. While nandrolone decanoate provides a release of nandrolone from the area of injection lasting approximately 3 weeks, nandrolone phenylpropionate is active for only about a week.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is fast acting steroid and therefore makes it possible for the compound to be out of the body much more quickly. This makes this steroid a better choice than Deca for tested bodybuilders and athletes. Users typically follow a dosage schedule of every other day when using this substance to keep blood levels elevated and stable. Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, is a more popular drug than Deca for use in cutting cycles recently, due to this fact.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate seems to produce less water retention than its longer acting counterparts, and this would be very consistent with injectable testosterones, where shorter esters provide much less water retention.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is a progestin, like any nandrolone derivative. However, although it’s a progestin, Nandrolone (regardless of ester) doesn’t produce much of estrogenic side effects. Any side effects from Nandrolone Phenylpropionate would therefore more properly be termed progestenic in nature- as it only converts to estrogen at roughly 20% the rate of testosterone.
Regardless of ester, all of the characteristics of found in one type of Nandrolone are found in any other. Nandrolone, probably owing to its progestenic nature has the ability to improve collagen synthesis as well as bone mineral content. This is a huge benefit to athletes with connective tissue problems or other joint issues, although drug-tested athletes need to avoid Nandrolones because of their detectability in urine for a year to 18 months after administration. Also, since it is progestin (with slight estrogenic ability), it probably has some very beneficial effects on the immune mediated anti-inflammatory process, thereby soothing joints as well as helping to heal them.
