Epi-Andro (Tablets) – Product Details
EpiAndro, also known as Epiandrosterone, is a prohormone derived from DHEA. It is a metabolite of testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT). [R]
EpiAndro is naturally produced in peripheral tissues in the body, before being converted to testosterone and other sex hormones. This substance potentially possesses anabolic properties and may also have the ability to improve blood circulation in a specific portion of the circulatory system. [R][R]
Pure Rawz sells EpiAndro for research purposes only.
What is Epi-Andro?
EpiAndro is a metabolite and precursor of testosterone and estradiol. It is derived from DHEA, a anabolic hormone that helps produce other hormones, including T and estrogen. It was first isolated in the 1930s and has been shown to occur in most mammals naturally.
EpiAndro has been found to potentially possess anabolic properties. This prohormone has also been shown to have the potential to increase nitric oxide synthesis and dilate blood vessels pre-contracted by partial depolarization. Aside from that, it may also potentially improve blood circulation. [R]
How does Epi-Andro Work?
EpiAndro has the following working mechanisms: [R]
1. Precursor of Testosterone and Estradiol
Testosterone and estradiol are principal hormones that control the sexual characteristics of males and females, respectively. Having said that, estradiol in men is essential for modulating libido, sperm production, and erectile function. [R]
2. Binds to GABA Receptors
GABA, short for gamma-aminobutyric acid, is a valuable anti-anxiety neurotransmitter. This chemical messenger slows certain brain functions to potentially offer various health benefits, including reducing stress, improving sleep, and relieving anxiety. [R]
3. May Potentially Improve Blood Circulation
EpiAndro may potentially improve blood circulation by:
- Its proposed mechanism of dilating blood vessels. EpiAndro has been shown to potentially inhibit the pentose phosphate pathway (PPP), and as a result potentially dilate blood vessels pre-contracted by partial depolarization.
- Potentially improving microcirculation. EpiAndro has been shown to potentially enhance nitric oxide synthesis in the body, improving microcirculation (blood circulation in the smallest blood vessels).
Multiple animal studies have been conducted on Epiandrosterone. Various administration studies have also been carried out on this chemical. The administration studies’ goal was to investigate the applicability of EpiAndro as a potential marker for testosterone use.
However, no clinical trials have analyzed the effects of this prohormone. As such, any claims that muscle addiction EpiAndro help with lean muscle gains or help with lean muscle mass are based on anecdotal evidence. Pure Rawz sells EpiAndro for laboratory research purposes.
EpiAndro cannot be used as a dietary supplement.
1. Epi-Andro and Testosterone
Health experts suggest that epiandrosterone may be converted to testosterone and other sex hormones in the body. In males, testosterone is thought to regulate sex drive, bone mass, fat distribution, and muscle mass and strength. Plus, testosterone may also increase lean muscle gains. [R]
Moreover, administration studies have been conducted to evaluate the applicability of epiandrosterone as a marker for testosterone use. These studies have concluded that epiandrosterone is responsive to higher-dose testosterone administration. [R]
2. Epi-Andro and Epilepsy
An animal study was conducted to determine whether epiandrosterone could protect against epileptic seizures. Results from the study indicate that this endogenous anabolic metabolite has anticonvulsant properties.
In conclusion, the study demonstrates that epiandrosterone may be protective in various seizure models in vivo and in vitro. There is evidence that its levels are reduced in some men with epilepsy. This could point to a cause of increased seizure susceptibility. [R]
3. Epi-Andro and GABA
Studies have shown that epiandrosterone appears to bind to the gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)/benzodiazepine-receptor complex (GABA-RC), acting as a negative non-competitive modulator of GABA-RC. Here’s why this could be of huge significance. [R]
GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It is also present in the peripheral nervous system. In the brain, GABA’s actions result in a calming effect. In the spinal cord, GABA allows your nervous system to process and organize information brought in by the senses. [R]
4. Epi-Andro and Blood Circulation
Epi-Andro may potentially improve blood circulation via two different mechanisms. [R]
This prohormone may potentially inhibit the pentose phosphate pathway to dilate the blood vessels that were previously contracted by partial depolarization. The resulting expansion of blood vessels would allow the blood more space to flow, resulting in an increased blood flow.
Secondly, EpiAndro may potentially improve circulation in the microvasculature (the part of the circulatory system containing the smallest blood vessels). It may do this by boosting nitric oxide synthesis, reducing plasma plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1, and increasing cyclic guanosine monophosphate synthesis.
5. Epi-Andro and Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1)
Research shows that Epi-Andro may potentially increase serum levels of (IGF-1). IGF-1 is a hormone that regulates the effects of growth hormone (GH) in the body. Together, GH and IGF-1 promote the normal growth of tissues and bones. Plus, it has been proven that exercise programs increase IGF-1. [R][R]
6. Epi-Andro and Nitric Oxide
Research also indicates that Epi-Andro may have the potential ability to increase nitric oxide synthesis. NO production is essential for overall health because it enables blood, oxygen, and nutrients to reach every part of your body. Limited NO synthesis is associated with diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and heart disease. [R]
Frequently Asked Questions
Is EpiAndrosterone a anabolic compound?
Health experts suggest that epiandrosterone is an anabolic compound. It is naturally produced in the body by the enzyme 5α-reductase from the adrenal hormone DHEA. This chemical is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.
Does Epi-Andro help with muscle and weight gain?
No studies have been carried out to investigate the potential effects of EpiAndro on weight or lean muscle building. More research is thus needed to verify or refute this assertion.
