What is it and How does it effect you?
The noted research behind the compound has known to increase your anabolic and androgenic activity by up to 12x when compared to natural testosterone levels.
A derivative of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and sharing a similar chemical structure of the steroid epitiostanol, once ingested, epistane binds to the receptors of the body that are responsible for building lean muscle mass. It is a readily orally active compound, meaning it is best in capsule form for oral administration over injection. Once ingested epistane works by increasing the level of activity in the cells in androgen receptors, upon binding to these receptors, epistane signals for an increased retention of nitrogen within that cell as well as an increased level of protein synthesis, leading to an increased performance as the muscles can perform/recover/grow better.
Who should take it?
As the compound is a derivative of DHT which is responsible for muscle and skeletal tissue growth as well as testosterone production it is advised that only males take this product as females may suffer from unwanted side effects due to the sudden influx of DHT within the body. These side effect can include unwanted hair loss or growth, a deepening of the voice and even reproductive issues, for this reason we do not advocate the use of epistane for women.
We also advise that those under the age of 21 do not take this product as it can hinder natural testosterone production and may cause issues and unwanted side effects such as trouble reproducing and returning testosterone back to a normal level.
How to take it?
Although research on this is mixed, the general recommended dosage of EPI20 for many is 20-40mg a day, this is best split into two dosages to ensure that the compound remains fully active in your system and the full benefits are achieved.
For more advanced users you may wish to up the dosage to 60mg a day but must advise that this should only be for a short amount of time.
Due to the half life of the compound, you should split the daily dose into two, for example take your first capsule in the morning alongside your on cycle support and take your second capsule in the evening alongside your on cycle support.
There is a full list of potential side effects on our FAQ page, we suggest you take the necessary precautions for all potential side effects.
One of the more immediate precautions would be protecting your liver, as Epistane/EPI20 is methylated.
Alongside increasing your water intake we suggest using supplements to help protect your liver. The minimum requirements for this would be an Eden Health Milk Thistle, for maximum protection we suggest using Pure Labs Cycle Shield.
You will need to run a full PCT with this supplement.
We suggest using The Ultimate PCT, alternatively you can run the following stacks
Clomadex / Pure DAA
Clomadex / TestaFlex
6-oxo / Pure DAA
6-oxo / TestaFlex
Epistane/Epi20 is not as suppressive as some other Pro-Hormones some experienced users will supplement Clomadex for 4 weeks as their PCT, This however is the bare minimum requirements for a PCT. If you wanted an optimal recovery, if you are stacking this compound or if you are extending your cycle then we would advise using an advanced hormonal recovery agent such as the Ultimate PCT or the Flex-a-Dex.
