Is Epistane a steroid?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's a steroid because it is an active hormone on its own, meaning it doesn't have to convert to another hormone in the body to exert its effects, like a prohormone does.

Hmm... good way of defining it. Is Epistane really a hormone, or is it one of those "herbal mix" ****boxes that has lavendar leaves and candy sprinkles in it? I'm not saying it is that, I'm saying I don't know and their website doesn't really clarify that sufficiently for my liking.

A steroid (by definition) is a 17 carbon tetra-ring: consisting of three 6-membered rings, and a 5-membered ring at the end of the chain; therefore, not only is epistane a steroid, so are a lot of other compounds which are not considered AAS.
If you are looking for something that will not cause you to fail an AAS drug test, I would recommend you keep looking.

yeahright and couldigga are both correct. technically all steroids are hormonal products. however, basically all prohormones are modified or designer versions of steroids that either are, or convert to active substances in the body.

A true prohormone would be something like Vitamin D which displays no hormonal activity itself, but converts to a molecule which does.

2) Less water retention, bloat. Kind of like cousins. Ones big and beefy, the other is hard and less bloated. Both are rather sides free with obvious cautions.
3) The only difference in this moment is the scheduling. With neither you are no longer "natural."

Sorry to sound ignorant... unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a rule that prevents the "herbal" stuff from being labeled as if it were "Real" and vice versa.

Will Epistane show up on a steroid test?
If so, what pro-hormones can I take that will not?
Also, is Epitiostanol and epitestosterone the same thing?
If an AAS test checks for epitestosterone, is Epistane going to convert into that?

this may be an absolute dumb question..but in my research ppl are saying that sd, pp and"EPI" are the top dogs in the PH category, so my questions is, is "epistane" epi? and if so then havoc would be epi too, right??
someone please advise me on this

Yes you are correct wolfe. Dont forget to add the "tren" products in that mix though.
None of those three are PH's though. All are active steroids.
To the OP. Just google the name. It takes 10 seconds to find the actual active steroid for any compound out.

Probably, unless it is a test that only looks for certain steroids (like a home testing kit). Sanctioning organizations like the Olympic Committee, NCAA, NFL, NBA, etc. would definitely test for it, so if you're an athlete, keep looking.
No, they aren't the same thing.
Epistane doesn't convert into anything; it's already active on its own.

iS epi considered a class I or Class II ph.
There is one big post going around classifying it at 1, bc it is progestin based
Ive also read that epi, as well as all other 17a- compounds are automatically Class II?

THEY ARE ROIDS!!! Epistane is methylated epitiostanol which is an active anabolic steroid... The oral tren products you see, methylated dienelone also an active anabolic steriod...Superdrol is methylated masteron an active anabolic steroid... ect ect ect...

so EPISTERONE is a
PH/ ROID but if you go to amazon and look for this product it says its a pro-Anabolic? whats a Pro Anabolic? and assuming this a pct would be necessary?

Many legal supplements use knockoff names of Anabolics to sell their goods. Makes em sound more potent. If what you mean with Episterone is the same one I looked up...its just a cheap sup, highly overpriced. By FightLabs?
The ingredient in real Epistane will be
2, 3a-Epithio-17a-methyletioallo cholan-17b-ol
