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.
The recommended dosage for Ermalone users is 10-20 mg/day for 6-8 weeks, which is often enough to keep blood serum levels well above baseline with this particular drug. More specifically, Ermalones strength and muscle gains are largely on par with those of the DHT-derived anabolic steroid Winstrol ( Stanozolol ). Its anabolic and androgenic effects are typically dose dependent and extremely supportive of testosterone-based cycles. Experienced steroid users have been known to run more aggressive dosages of 30 mg/day of methyldihydrotestosterone.
