What makes Epi 2a3a by Vital Labs so "Popular?"
Epi 2a3a is the most potent, strongest, and purest Epistane product on the market, but Epi 2a3a’s trump card boils down to one thing… effectiveness!!!
One of the reasons for Epi 2a3a’s popularity is its versatility. It can be used in any cycle and can help you achieve almost any goal. If you are looking to cut, just make sure you are at a calorie deficit and watch yourself get shredded. If you are looking to add on lean muscle, make sure your diet is clean and that you are consuming more than you burn, and witness a transformation!
Epistane - Epistane is derived from Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and is an anti-estrogenic dry compound. A lot of excess fat is due to excess estrogen, Epistane will actually decrease estrogen through aromatase inhibition, which means Epistane prohormones are fantastic cutters!
On the other side of the coin, Epistane will bind to your androgen receptors which leads to changes in your muscle cell’s function. These changes result in increases in your muscle’s potential for growth and repair. Epistane will allow you to push beyond your genetic potential!
Can I stack Epi 2a3a with other Prohormones?
Yes you can! Stacking should only be done by experienced prohormone user's who have done at least one cycle in the past 6 months.
If your goal is to increase strength while leaning out and hardening your muscles stack Epi 2a3a with Halo-V by Vital Labs.
Most users will run Epi 2A3A for 1-6 weeks starting with a 10-20 mg dosage for the first 2 days. The remainder of the cycle varies depending on desired results. Some users will ramp their cycle up week by week starting by taking 10-20 mg for the first week and increasing daily intake by an additional 10mg each week for 4 weeks ending at 40 mg daily. We suggest that for your last few days/week that you taper your dosage back down to 20 mg.
Epi 2a3a is one of the mildest methylated prohormones, but that is no reason to overlook taking an on cycle support. Consider the fact that most people tend to run Epistane at a dosage amount much higher than the recommended amount, therefore, proper support is even more essential. Your best value option is going to be Protex by Vital Labs.
Due to the fact that Epi 2a3a is a dry gainer and a cutter, a common side effect during cycle is dry joints. Your body will be shedding water like crazy! Drink a minimum of a gallon of water a day, and take a joint supplement so you don't get achy joints from them drying out. Joint and Tissue by Myogenix is your best option for this.
Aside from dry joints, the only real side effect is "Rebound Gyno," but if this occurs it is after the prohormone cycle. This means that your body has experienced a very high suppression from estrogen that when your body is off the prohormone it produces an excessive amount of estrogen to compensate, thus leading to estrogen related side effects like Gynecomastia. This is an uncommon side effect, but when it does occur it is typically due to user's running it at an extremely high dosage (50 mg+ per day). To help combat this, it is suggested that you use Post Cycle 3X by Vital Labs for your PCT as it has Indol-3-carbinol, which helps convert bad estrogen to good estrogen.
Make sure once you have completed your prohormone cycle that you take an additional 30 days off before starting another cycle. Feel free to Contact the Pros at StrongSupplementShop.com if you need support with your cycle or need help planning your next one!
Wow! First ever PH cycle for me. Expected to put on 5lbs or so and improve overall muscle tone. I went from around 215 or 220lbs to 237! Seemed to kick in at the end of the 2nd week. I actually nearly stopped on the 4th week because it was working too well. Friends and family were calling me out for using steroids. No significant side effects - I was tired most of the time, and into the 4th week my muscles would cramp up really easy when I flexed them. Otherwise, I felt great. I was able to work out far sooner than usual, and got major pumps in the gym. The muscle I put on is lean, toned, and hard as a rock. I understand my results are not typical, but I 100% would recommend, and will try again.(Posted on 10/10/13)
Epi 2A3A was amazing. I've been lifting for 17 years and have never had results like this. After 1 week, you could already feel it kicking in. I was lifting 275 and shot up to 305. At the same time, I was eating everything (not always clean) but leaned out and dried up like crazy. Abs came out, striations, and muscle definition. I would highly recommend this product. (Posted on 9/24/13)
Gained 12 pounds of lean muscle, boosted my bench 45 pounds, increased stamina and libido. Very few side effects, other than 1 or 2 days of back pumps and a migraine was the cycle was completed. ** Must take a cycle support product and a good PCT ** Beginners may not see results until week 3, depends on your dosage and experience using Epistane. Beginner dosing week 1 & 2 (2 per day) week 3 (3 per day) weeks 4-5 + 3 days (4 per day). Advanced users week 1-4 (3 or 4 per day)

Questions & Answers
Can I use epi 2a3a during a bulking cycle? How many calories should I aim for?
Question by: sultan aldosari on Jul 30, 2014 12:04:00 AM
Yes you can use Epi 2a3a during a bulking cycle... It will help you keep the body fat under control while you are gaining mass. I would suggest shooting for about 3,500 to 4,500 calories if you are trying to do a LEAN bulk.
Answer by: Joe (Admin) on Jul 30, 2014 11:04:00 AM
I am taking medication for high blood pressure, is epi 2a 3a safe for me? I am considering stacking it with powerdrol.
Question by: Drew Wilton on Aug 9, 2014 2:44:00 PM
Prohormones are designed to be used by healthy individuals. Individuals who have high blood pressure or other medical conditions should always consult their physician before considering using prohormones as the prohormones themselves will cause the user's blood pressure to fluctuate. Please consult your health care professional in regards to this as they know your body better than us and are more familiar with your specific medical condition.

Does Epi-2a3a help you lose fat ? Do I need to be in deficit to lose body fat?
Question by: sam on Jul 7, 2014 11:15:00 PM
Yes, Epi 2a3a (epistane) is designed to work as a cutting agent. It will help you reduce estrogen which in turn will help you shed body fat, reduce water weight, and get a much tighter look to your physique. The amount of body fat and water weight you lose depends on your diet and the type of training you are doing. Having a lower caloric intake will help accelerate fat loss but you dont have to be in a very deep deficit for it to work. Some guys eat at a maintenance caloric intake and are still able to lose a good amount of body fat. The amount of calories you burn on a daily basis should also be factored in as this will also have an effect on the amount of body fat or water weight you can lose.
I am 34 years old, 5'10", weigh about 174 lbs, and I am looking to do my first PH cycle. Would Epistane or MSTEN be a better choice for bulking? What is the Anabolic to Androgenic ratio for each and which would be a better choice to prevent gyno symptoms?
Question by: BH on Aug 14, 2014 8:34:00 PM
MSTEN is more ideal for bulking. Epistane is more of a cutting/muscle hardening compound. Epistanes anabolic ratio is about 1100:91 while MSTEN's anabolic ratio is around 660:170. Epistane was actually used in Japan to help reduce gyno so this compound is more effective at preventing/reducing gyno, however you must be cautious during and after your Post Cycle Therapy. Epistane has been known to have issues causing the users estrogen levels to rebound after the cycle so I would suggest getting a strong estrogen blocker to have on hand in order to help you reduce estrogen and prevent gyno.
I am taking Epi 2a3a for my first prohormone cycle. How should I take it each day (with or without meals and timing)?
Question by: Matt Rankin on Oct 28, 2014 3:48:00 PM
It is best to split your epistane into 3 doses throughout the day spread 6 hours apart from each other. For example: 8 am, 2 pm, and 8 pm. Taking your doses with meals with not only help with the absorption of the epistane, but it will actually even increase the half-life of the compound (thus making it active in your system for longer periods of time). The sweet spot dose of Epi is between 30 to 40 mg per day. I would suggest starting your cycle at 20 mg for the first week and then ramping up your doses by 10 mg each week until you reach 40 mg. After reaching 40 mg per day, you will want to start ramping your doses back down closer to 20 mg as you get closer towards the end of your cycle. Coming off of a high dose of epistane will increase your risks of experiencing rebound estrogen build up, so be sure to taper off of your doses as you get closer to completing your cycle.
Here is a basic protocol for Epi2a3a:
Week 1: 2 caps a day (8 am and 2 pm)
Week 2: 3 caps a day (8 am, 2 pm, and 8 pm)
Week 3: 4 caps per day (if you go to the gym in the morning take 2 caps at 8 am, 1 cap 2 pm, and 1 cap 8 pm. if you go to the gym in the evening 1 cap at 8 am, 1 cap at 2 pm, 2 caps at 8 pm. if you go to the gym in the afternoon: 1 cap at 8 am, 2 caps at 2 pm, and 1 cap at 8 pm)
Week 4: same as week 2
Week 5: same as week 2 and week 4
Week 6: same as week 1
Epistane has a half life of roughly 6 hours. That basically means that when you take epistane, after 6 hours the strength of it in your system cuts in half. After another 6 hours the active compound cuts in half again, after another 6 hours again. This process repeats itself every 6 hours.
Considering that there is 168 hours in a week, this process will repeat itself 28 times within 1 week, making it virtually untraceable, but to be safe I would say that by the end of your PCT it should be untraceable.
Answer by: Dave (Admin) on Jun 18, 2014 12:49:00 PM
Yes, the deer antler velvet is not liver toxic nor should it counteract the epistane. I would just be sure that the deer antler velvet doesnt have any natural testosterone booster ingredients in it that may potentially interfere with the synthetic testosterone you would be getting from your prohormones.

Can I take liver guard during the cycle without minimizing its affects ?
Question by: Dloperena on Aug 15, 2014 7:44:00 PM
Of course, as long as you properly spread out your dose of the liver guard about 2 hours after your doses of Epistane then you should definitely be able to prevent the liver guard/cycle support from interfering with the absorption of the prohormone. What you can also do to enhance the absorption of your prohormone doses is take a shot of olive oil or coconut oil in order to have the essential fatty acids help the breakdown and absorption process of the compound.
Does Epistane make you break out or get more acne?
Question by: Kyle on Oct 2, 2014 10:07:00 PM
If you have had issues with acne previously, then yes, there is a good chance that you will experience a little bit of breakout. As long as you do your best to keep your skin clean and clear, you should be able to minimize this side effect (or completely avoid it all together). Acne will go away on its own shortly after completing your cycle.
How much of your gains will you keep once you have finished your pct?
Question by: Steve on Sep 9, 2014 8:38:00 PM
How much muscle the user retains after finishing their cycle is completely dependent on them. The better they diet, train, and supplement when coming off of the cycle, the more of the gains from the cycle they will be able to keep. Using a cortisol inhibitor is very important during the post cycle therapy phase as this prevents your body from creating a catabolic environment as a result of your metabolism slowing back down to its normal rate and your cortisol levels rising. A cortisol inhibitor will help you reduce muscle breakdown and will actually prevent your body from gaining fat as a result of the users metabolism slowing back down to normal. I would suggest implementing LEAN XTREME by Driven Sports to your supplementation during your PCT as well as a solid natural anabolic supplement such as SECRETA BRIDGE by LGI in order to support your new muscle mass and prevent muscle wasting.
Here are the links, check them out!

What is the best dosage of Epi to take for beginners and for how many weeks? Trying to build the most size and strength.
Question by: Russell on Oct 7, 2014 6:52:00 PM
If you are a beginner and/or weigh under 200 lbs. then you can start the Epi cycle as low as 30 mg per day and take it up as high as 50 mg per day as you progress from week to week of the cycle in order to get the best results. For best results, Epi should be ran for 6 weeks.
I would suggest having a strong PCT in line if you plan on exceeding 40 mg per day. The higher you go on the dose the more suppressive the compound becomes and the harder it is for your body to recover. For this, I would suggest WICKED PCT by AAR.
Heres the link, check it out:

Should Epi 2a3a be taken before a workout or after? With food or without? How far apart should it be taken if I'm taking 3 capsules per day?
Question by: Danny Olivares on Aug 3, 2014 9:34:00 PM
Yes, it would benefit the user to take the compound before a workout as it will help enhance endurance and muscle pumps. Taking prohormones with food is always suggested. Food helps increase the half life of the compound and essential fatty acids will help with the absorption process. You should spread each dose of Epistane apart by 6 hours as this is the actual half life of the compound.
I was wondering about running a 2 month cycle. I haven't run one before but am looking into starting with EPI 2A3A, then following with EPI 2A3A again stacked with Haldrol. I was wondering what the usual dosage would be when stacking them together for each, or if I'd be better doing one at a time. Thanks.
Question by: Eric Reynolds on Oct 13, 2014 1:09:13 PM
Hi Eric, Prohormones should only be ran for a period of 4-6 weeks. After running it for that time it is important to make sure to do the pct for 4 weeks as well. After the pct is over if you want to run another cycle, you should allow yourself 40-60 days after the pct is over to recover from the strain and stress you body experienced from the PH. So wait 40-60 days after the pct is over before starting another cycle. If this is gonna be your first time running one, Epi 2a3a is a good one to run.
Can I stack Mentabolan with Epistane? If so, how should I take them?
Question by: konstantinos kosmas on Oct 1, 2014 7:45:00 AM
Yes, Mentabolan and Epistane can be stacked together. The Epistane will actually help reduce some of the estrogen that the Mentabolan will convert into. The most common sweet spot dosing for Epi is between 30 to 40 mg per day. The sweet spot dosing for Mentabolan is between 20 to 40 mg per day. These compounds should be taken in 3 doses spread 6 hours apart (8 am, 2pm, and 8pm for example). Both of these compounds can be taken for as long as 6 weeks max!
I have high blood pressure and my friend has HIV. Would be still be able to use this supplement?
Question by: Justin on Oct 2, 2014 1:23:00 PM
Prohormones have been known to cause your blood pressure to rise, so we always suggest consulting your physician prior to using supplements of this sort.
As far as the HIV situation; I do know that doctors will prescribe AIDS and/or HIV patients certain hormones in order to help keep their bodies strong, but again this is something that should be addressed by a licensed professional. I do apologize but we cannot give you medical advice because we are not doctors.
I'm about to start my Epi cycle and I was wondering if I could continue taking my normal supplements like creatine, multivitamins, fish oil, and pre-workout along with Epistane?
Question by: Tenzing Sherpa on Sep 18, 2014 11:10:00 PM
Yes, you can definitely continue using your multi vitamins, fish oil, BCAA, and proteins. The only thing I would suggest you refrain from using is the creatine and stimulant based preworkouts. Creatine will retain more water so it will make it more difficult for your body to lean out during your cycle of epistane. Stimulant based preworkouts or fat burners will cause your blood pressure to rise further than what the prohormones themselves will cause it to so be sure to only use non-stimulant based preworkouts or fat burners if you must even use them at all.
Do I need to take an estrogen blocker during my PCT if I'm only running the Epi2a3a at 30mg?
Question by: Craig c on Nov 21, 2014 11:50:00 PM
Yes you should, but most over the counter PCTs already have estrogen blocker ingredients built into it. I would suggest running a stand alone estrogen blocker for about 7 to 10 days after completing your PCT in order to help your body reduce circulating estrogen which will prevent estrogen rebounds when you completely cycle off.
I would suggest using ESTROGENEX 2ND GENERATION for that.

Can I use epi 2a3a while taking a of the self fat burner? I will be using Ketolean and phenadren (nutrishop products) stacked with Epi 2a3a. I'm a healthy male and was wondering if it's safe to take these together?
Question by: Joey on Sep 19, 2014 4:17:00 AM
I would not suggest taking any stimulant based fat loss supplements during the course of your epi cycle as it will not only hinder your results but will also even raise your blood pressure further than what the prohormone cycle itself is going to. I would suggest saving your fat loss supplements for use during your OFF CYCLE period after you have completed your post cycle therapy.
When using 1-andro as base supplement, what mg should it be ran at?
Question by: nick on Dec 6, 2014 9:39:00 PM
When running 1-Andro as a base, users should take between 300 to 500 mg per day for best results. Doing so will require about 6 bottles of 1-Andro in order for it to last you a full 4 to 6 weeks depending on how you dose the compound. Doses should be split into 3 time frames spread 6 hours apart from each other.
Answer by: Joe . (Admin) on Dec 8, 2014 3:20:00 PM
I bought epistane from this website I'm currently using it I notice I'm going to the bathroom more frequently . I'm worried about my kidneys is ther a supplement you sell for kidney protection.
Question by: Moses on Jul 6, 2014 8:44:48 AM
Did you not order a cycle support? You are supposed to be taking a cycle support supplement such as PROTEX or BLOCKADE. It says it all over the web page of the Epi 2a3a as well as our entire website.... A cycle support will help protect your liver and help you stabilize your blood pressure, so if I were you I would immediately order a cycle support as soon as possible.
Yes although Epistane is a methylated compound, it is very very low in terms of toxicity as long as the user stays within the 30 to 40 mg dosage range. Epistane will definitely have to be accompanied by a solid cycle support in order to reduce stress on the liver and also a joint support supplement in order to prevent joint discomfort. I would suggest taking a look at Protex by Vital Labs and Forged Joint Repair by Transform Supplements.

I have read on many websites that Epistane can cause hair loss. This is my main concern so I wanted to know if its true?
Question by: Keshav on Aug 20, 2014 2:19:00 AM
Hair loss will mainly occur as a result of vitamin/mineral deficiencies or as a result of DHT conversion. By supplementing a cycle support which has saw palmetto built into it along with a solid multi vitamin supplement, you should be able to avoid issues as far as hair loss for the most part. Hair loss has a lot to do with your genetics as well. If you have a history of male pattern baldness in your family then you have a higher chance of losing your hair as opposed to someone who has healthier hair genetics.
