Kronic Information (Prohormones)
I'm afriad as of today's date (1 May 12) I can't find a whole lot on this, but here's what I got. Only place I could find anything here was on the StrongSupplementShop site.
The sales writeup claims two ingredient:
Epistane - 15mg
Halodrol - 25gm
It doesn't list the actual compound nomenclatures, just the trade names. No recommendd dosage is offered, but based on each capsules ingredients, I would imagine 2-3 caps a day would be best for most users.
I will say, despite my opposition to premade stacks, that this looks like a pretty good combination.
I had great results from Epistane at 30mg a day. Starting dosage for Halodrol is 50mg, tapering up to 75mg, which is considered by many to be the sweet spot for this prohormone.
So taking 2 caps a day here would give you 30mg Epistane and 50mg Halodrol, very good dosages for most users. If you're bigger, or mor experienced, 3 caps gets you 45/75, still good dosages for both these compounds.
Both Halodrol and Epistane are methyls though, so liver protection should be used. Both are capable of shutting you down to, so have a good PCT in place.
2,3a-epithio-17a-methyletioallo cholan-17b-ol (Epistane)Trade names include Havoc/Epistane
Common Dosages: 30mg to 40mg daily
Common Cycle Length: 4-5 Weeks
Half-Life: Average (6-8 hours)
A designer steroid and legal alternative to anabolic and androgenic steroids.
Epistane is a methylated version of the controlled substance Epitiostanol (2a,3a-Epithio-5a-androstan-17a-ol), created in the 1960's and used as a treatment for breast cancer. Chemists added a methyl group to the compound to create the product known as Epistane. Epistane is a sulfur containing steroid which is known to have strong and long lasting anti-estrogenic activity as well as weak androgenic and mytropic activities.
Since it is anti-estrogenic, you can expect very dry gains from this compound. Epistane has low androgenic to anabolic activity, meaning it is much more anabolic then androgenic. Even though users will see dry gains on Epistane it does not mean that it would be any insufficient for a bulking cycle.
The occurrence rate of side effects while using Epistane/Havoc would be from mild to moderate, however they're user unique. Some users may not experience any side effects, while others will experience a combination of sides. It should be noted that the majority of these side effects are simply of inconvenience more so than a possible health affecting issue and for the most part can be resolved through simple supplementation, take sometime to read our article on combating side effects.
Increased aggression, head aches, lethargy and various other sides can happen aren't common
It should be noted that due to estrogen regulation, sore/aching joints is typically common.
4-chloro-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-diene-3b,17b-diol (Halodrol)Trade name: Halodrol, also known as H-Drol
Halodrol is a 17aa steroid that converts to the steroid oral Turinabol after interaction with 3b-HSD at an estimated rate of about 5%. Because of this low conversion, doses must be higher than other 17aa pro-steroids. However, it is suspected that Halodrol has decent potency without conversion as good results are seen despite the relatively low conversion to Turinabol. Halodrol appears to be about as potent as testosterone, and significantly less androgenic.
Because of the 4-chloro group, halodrol has no progestational effects, it cannot interact with the aromatase enzyme, and it produces inactive 4-chloro-DHT metabolites. This makes androgenic side-effects such as hair loss, high blood pressure, acne and prostate enlargement less likely.
The lack of androgenic potency might be expected to create problems with gyno, however the low SHBG binding affinity has minimal interference with SHBG levels and/or freely circuiting estrogen and testosterone. It does not appear that halodrol has a significant gyno risk.
Because halodrol must be used at such a high dose to see noticeable effects, liver toxicity may become an issue. Therefore it is recommended to use a liver protecting supplement before and during halodrol cycles.
Gains from Halodrol generally take a few weeks to notice, but users can expect solid increases in strength, lean muscle mass, improved vascularity and minimal water retention. This allows some of the gains to be kept after the cycle if good diet and training are continued. Quick dramatic gains in size and strength are not generally noticed with Halodrol.
H-Drol is one of the most popular and proven compounds on the market and is considered good for beginners due to it's reputation for minimal side effects and dry gains that are relatively easy to maintain after the cycle is complete.
