Epiandrosterone, also called Epi-Andro, is an androgenic steroid hormone, which is a natural metabolite of DHEA and converts to Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Known in the fitness world as a prohormone, it is considered a precursor to stanolone, but this simply means that epiandrosterone converts to DHT in the body. Epi-andro is naturally found in most mammals, and it is excreted as a normal part of metabolism when we urinate. In fact, it is also naturally found in pine pollen.
Appearance:White or white crystal
Usage:Used as Hydrocortisone, megestrol, caproic acid progesterone intermediates.
How it works and DHT ?
Epiandrosterone converts to DHT in the body. DHT is our male sex hormone, so it will cause an increase in strength, and it will help maintain muscle mass. What’s more, DHT helps inhibit estrogen conversion in the body, so it will help dry out the user and give the impression of a loss of body fat, since water is shed from within cells.
Another secret is its ability to bind to SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin), leading to a greater ratio of free testosterone to total testosterone. In the end of the day, it is this ‘free testosterone’ that really matters, not the total testosterone.
