Epi-Andro, namely epiandrosterone or 3beta-hydroxyetioallocholan-17-one, is a prohormone found naturally in the body. It is a metabolite of DHEA (5-dehydroepiandrosterone) and a precursor to testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT).
Epiandrosterone shows mild androgenic properties. Nonetheless, its benefits are mainly due to its conversion into DHT (5α-dihydrotestosterone), an active form of testosterone which shows 2-3 times higher affinity for an androgen receptor (AR) than testosterone. It has been demonstrated that it promotes the synthesis of muscle proteins in fast twitch muscle fibres, making it easier to gain muscle mass and strength. It helps burn body fat effectively and has a beneficial impact on mood and libido. DHT can also inhibit the activity of the enzyme aromatase which converts androgens into oestrogens. In addition, epiandrosterone is an antagonist of the oestrogen receptor and thus reduces the ability of oestrogens to bind to them.
Our store offers products which, along with epi-andro, contain ingredients which promote fat burning, block the enzyme aromatase, reduce cortisol levels and increase testosterone concentrations.
