At its simplest, Epistane or “Epi” – as it’s commonly called in the business – is a type of prohormone that’s a derivative of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and shares similar features with epitiostanol.
Just to give you an idea of how Epistane works, it basically binds to androgen receptors that are located in muscle stem cells and skeletal muscle cells. When this happens, these androgen receptors send messages to cells to boost their retention of nitrogen and protein synthesis, which improve strength and muscle mass.
If you’re a first time Epistane user, the recommended dose is 30mg daily. Since this prohormone usually comes in 10mg capsules with an average half-life, you’ll need to dose up three times a day in 7-hour intervals, with the very first one taken upon waking. This cycle should be run for 4 weeks for optimum results.
If you’re an intermediate Epistane user, you can bump up your daily dose to 40mg. However, the first couple of 10mg capsules should be taken together upon waking. Some experienced users also recommend taking one 10mg pill before hitting the gym. This cycle should be run for 6 weeks for optimum results.
Additionally, if you’re an experienced user, you can take up to 50 to 60mg of Epistane each day for 6 weeks, but make sure you keep a close eye on your dosing intervals as well as the post cycle therapy or PCT that you’re going to do after.
Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) Pointers
Now while we’ve touched on earlier that Epistane doesn’t set off side effects as much as its prohormone counterparts, it is still highly recommended to have a proper post cycle therapy or PCT going after cycling with this product.
Besides helping your body naturally build up its testosterone levels again, having a PCT also aids in keeping estrogen in check to stave off the loss of gains, increased water retention as well as the possibility of getting “bitch tits” or gynecomastia sooner or later.
Moreover, proper PCT also prevents your cortisol levels from getting out of hand after a cycle, which can promote an accelerated buildup of fat in the body.
