sugar in low doses is not fattening...
which is the reason for my using this example in the first place.
reason by analogy.
it is not a trick.

Epistane is suppressive, end of story.
Here's a bloodwork example of someone starting PCT from an epistane cycle...:
Day 0 (pct starts):
LH: 1.54, 1.51, 1.60 (mIU/ml)
FSH: 2.20, 2.37, 2.79 (mIU/ml)
Test: 250, 256, 264 (ng/dl)
Day 10 (ten days into pct):
LH: 2.43, 1.94, 1.54
FSH: 3.65, 3.27, 3.92
Test: 402, 418, 435

i am tired of runnin around with you on this issue.
clearly you are more interested in mischaracterizing the point of contention
in order to win whatever it is you seem to think is the argument,
than dealing with facts as presented.
of course, a straight cycle of epistane is gonna shut you down.
that is not the point of contention.
sugar is fattening.
if enough is consumed in a given time frame.
that is not false.
and should not be a point of contention.
the point is that small, especially initial, doses of epi stimulate lh.
if it clears the body or remains at levels low enough for (especially nightly) test production to take place,
then daily small doses can ALL be considered initial.
now, unless you have some blood work that shows this to be incorrect,
i expect that we can simply walk away from this issue.
if you don't wanna believe this,
i frankly don't care what you think about it because it simply is not that important.
if i thought that this information could save your life, or improve it in some way, then i would try harder to make sure that you understood.
but, it won't make ANY difference to you or to anyone else if you ever take 5 mgs of epistane a day for a few weeks after a cycle of steroids.
i figure enough said.
with all due respect, and perhaps even some undue respect,

those people are all mis informed d/t the "write ups" for epistane discussing it being an analog of a steroidial aromatase inhibitor used in japan for decades.
it doesn't matter if you agree with me, because people who actually know something about steroids, will agree with me.
I'm getting sick of newbies who dont know a steroid from their ass telling me about aas.
you really need to research more, but I guess if you dont know the basics of androgenic/anabolic chemistry, then its easy to understand why you fall victim to bro science.
go read a book. learn something.
i'll say it again, epistane is not an aromatase inhibitor, nor is there any studies I know of showing it does.
it is a methylated oral androgenic/anabolic steroid, and is a methylated dht derivative. maybe on of it's metabolites has some aromatase inhibition activity, but the steroid itself, does not.
epistane is not an anti estrogenic compound.
it is a highly anabolic/moderately androgenic compound.
being that epistane(methepistanol) mg for mg is stronger than anavar (oxymetholone), and 10mg of anavar has been shown in numerous clinical studies on humans to cause hpta supression, saying 5mg of epistane e/d wont effect you is stupid, and shoes how little you know about steroids.

i appreciate your concern.
and, especially, the time you are ALL taking here to correct me...
i know, you all have better things to do.
and, i believe that you are taking your time to correct me out of a genuine concern,
both for me and for the community at large.
you are good people.
i am grateful to have you on my side...
this is all true.
and i mean it.
in the interest of absolute openness,
i will confess that i am not an expert on steroid chemistry.
i was a phd student in chemistry.
i did do a fair amount of organic chemistry.
and, i did run the pre-med program as an undergraduate,
though took the acs chemistry degree instead.
but, the information that i have taken on epistane comes mostly from anabolic minds.
the long pulse guide.
some other stuff i read - especially company sites.
other sites that would have shown up on web searches.
tuned sports, for example - dunno if there is an epi post on there in particular, but it is one of the sites that i have read from a bit...
some people callin epi 'landing gear' and usin it as a taper,
crossing into pct proper with it.
other doods runnin low doses straight up as part of pct.
and, in clarification, i thought that i had read that it was an anti-estrogen with more serm-ish properties than a.i. properties...
dunno how epi as an a.i. came up in the last post...
i should have you know that i live in korea,
on an island,
and am the only foreigner in my gym...
no community here,
no one to learn from.
hell, no spotter.
so, well, what i do learn i learn alone.
as, what i do, i do alone.
that said, i appreciate very much your attention.
whether you like it or not! -
are my lifting buddies...
sorry about that.
but, i am happy for it.
especially for a set of doods honest and standup enough to tell me like it is,
as they see it,

That the thread was about this product (which contains epi) being used in PCT or not.What would the point of this product be and is it supposed to be run as part of PCT (being methylated seems to defeat the purpose if so)? Also I do not plan on using it anytime soon.
But no worries, we all know what's up, and that's simply not to do it

Has anyone run both products? Both products being Epi and Epi with an AI included. If so I would love to hear your thoughts on the differences. I love Epi but have reserves about running Epi with an AI just because of my results from Epi alone.

i am in on that CEO!
and i will bring my own log to the table, on testrofire, another methylated monster 'pct' product!
awesome thred man.

and, isn't low estrogen a problem on epi cycles?
i had some issues on a pulse, and i wasn't running an ai on off days, either...
anyways, would seem to make an ai unnecessary, if not a potential problem, perhaps erasing too much estrogen and asking for not only enhanced on-cycle sides but enhanced estrogen rebound in pct...?
actually, i would like to try epi with a dhea product underneath it, like a dermacrine or an m1d.
these have ai's in them, but should contribute more substrate for the production of estrogen, and may offset the low estrogen problems associated with epi cycles - dry, painful joints being problem #1 for me...

Studies show that small doses of the parent compound, Epitiostanol, at just 10-20mg/week showed a complete disappearance of the mass and pain in 25% of the male patients in the clinical trail, while the other 75% of the patients showed at least a 50% reduction in the mass and complete loss of pain in just 4-8 weeks.
And I found this on Epitiostanol:
Epitiostanol =/= EpistaneOriginally Posted by © 1973 JAPANESE JOURNAL OF CLINICAL ONCOLOGY
Now if you find something worthwhile, i.e. papers, user results with bloodwork,
I'd really like to see it.
01-15-2011, 09:36 PM
yeah, i remember this paper getting referenced i suppose...
really, beyond the 'hype' generated from this,
i really just have the reports i took from users
found here, i suppose, quite a bit as a.m. is a pretty huge warehouse of info,
and from dr. d's thread, i suppose,
as this 'property' of epi is supposed to be one of its big pulse selling points...
besides that, my own experience -
on 30 mg epi/day, taken in the morning, i felt like a little shriveled girl the next morning.
on 20, i awoke with raging wood fires every morning (well, as raging a fire as this splinter of a rail can generate...).
i took this as (personal) confirmation of the - if not lh encouraging - NON-suppressive properties of the ds in low enough/appropriately spaced/timed doses...
figure this, with a half-life of say 7 hours, when dosed at 9a.m., then, by bedtime at midnite, there's about 5mg of active left in circulation,
an amount which - from personal experience- does not seem to f with my nuts.
just my experience.

look at your quoted compound:
now, look at Methylepitiostanol aka epistane:
one of these things is not like the other....
it's like trying to say dianabol is the same as boldenone.
you guys figure out how to remove that methyl group from your epistane, then you'll be in business.
oh, and that studie was done via injection administration. even if you inject the methylated version, the results will be different than oral administration.
but thank you for providing the study, I was worried for a second I might not actually know what im talking about.
