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.
Without question increasing size and strength is this steroids primary nature but like many steroids it can serve secondary purposes apt for other goals. When the individual is dieting a good Dianabol cycle can aid in maintaining strength levels as they commonly drop when in a calorie deficit; further, like most anabolic hormones Dbol will preserve lean tissue. For the competitive bodybuilder this steroid can absolutely be used during a diet but we wouldnt recommend it at the tail-end due to the high aromatase factor. It is true, the Methandrostenolone hormone is perhaps not the best anabolic steroid for dieting purposes but if it is what you have available it will more than get the job done and the good news for you is this steroid is generally cheap and widely available.
