So I have recently been doing a lot of reading around Nandrolone compared to testosterone for hormone replacement.
Looking at the pharmacodynamics of Nandrolone, it does seem to offer some good points in regards to its addition (not replacement) to Testosterone. The 2 main points being:
It does not undergo conversion to DHT by 5AR which in the long term would avoid any complications with regards to prostate enlargement and alopecia.
It has a much higher anabolic rating than testosterone, and for most of us on here looking for physique enhancement is certainly of interest.
From what I’ve gathered, ED caused by Nandrolone is due to its metabolite DHN “displacing” DHT in penile tissue. It is well known that DHT is the primary hormone in achieving and maintaining an erection.
With that in mind, I was thinking a 75/75/75 dose of Test/Mast/NPP could be more beneficial than running the same amount of mg’s in Testosterone only.
In theory, you would get the muscle building and joint protecting benefits of NPP, the DHT required to prevent ED from the Masteron and the benefits of low dose Testosterone.
