Nandrolone phenylpropionate, or nandrolone phenpropionate, sold under the brand name Durabolin among others, is an androgen and anabolic steroid medication which has been used primarily in the treatment of breast cancer and osteoporosis in women.
On the basis of the hormone’s function, Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is identical to Nandrolone Decanoate. Both forms are comprised of the same active hormone. In the case of Nandrolone Phenylpropionate, we have a shorter ester version that gives a larger burst of Nandrolone after injection but also carries a much shorter half-life. This means Nandrolone Phenylpropionate has to be injected more frequently than its larger ester counterpart if blood levels are to remain stable.
Nandrolone Phenylpropionate is also significantly less estrogenic than testosterone. Both Nandrolone and testosterone aromatize, but Nandrolone only does so at approximately 20% the rate of testosterone.
The Nandrolone hormone is one of the most valuable anabolic steroids of all; top five without a doubt. Medically it is an incredible hormone, although the Phenylpropionate version has never been giving the full opportunity to shine. This isn’t because of its inferiority, it’s simply that the medical world doesn’t really need more than one Nandrolone hormone and Decanoate is simply the one is chosen.
For the steroid user, this steroid can almost be called essential to an off-season mass plan. But when we look at what it can do for recovery and healing it is almost in a class of its own.
