First time in this forum, but I thought this could be fun. There is only so much reading till I get bored, especially when the internetz is a mess of bad information, so why not get some thoughts from more guys in here?
The story....started reading up on d-aspartic acid, sounded out a company about bulk DAA, and got a response saying no, but a product is about to come out with DAA in it. However, on the label DAA wasn't the primary listed ingredient, raising my curiosity when I went to find out what each particular chemical actually was.
3a-Epithio-17a-methyletioallo cholan-17b-ol (aka Epistane)
13-ethyl-3-methoxy-gona-2 (a progestin)
3, 17-keto-etiochol-triene (aka 1,4,6-Androstatrien-3,17-dione (ATD))
What I am after here are opinions on this particular product (not an argument about "just take the real stuff", some of us aren't in positions to do that).
Clearly we have a company going down an interesting route, again, but is it any good? Bonez already provided an opinion in the original forum this was raised in, but I would like to hear opinions from others, or agreements with Bonez.
From Bonez "Thats a really shitty product. Not from a gains perspective but from the possible effects on the endocrine system. The first one is epistane. So that will shut down the HPTA if used long enough. And I bet theyre also selling an OTC product to use "post cycle" that will do nothing to actually restart the HPTA
the second is a progestin. similar to a birth control pill but may have anabolic properties, I dont really know. Id never touch that shit though.
The third is the drug used in "6-oxo". Which I THINK but I may be wrong is a mild aromatase inhibitor. Completely useless as non of the above drugs will convert to estrogen. Epistane also has mild anti-aromatase properties as well.
So basically people buying this may think theyre buying a DAA supplement but are in fact buying a an anabolic designer steroid (that works pretty well actually for what it is, but does have side effects). Companies like the one marketing that are the reason why legislators are going to pass a bill to regulate the supp industry. And every single dietary supp will see a huge price increase because of that."
The company label says for 8 weeks use only, then 4 weeks off, but as Bonez rightly pointed out they do also have their own line of OTC 'post cycle' products as well, that as far as I can tell are not well regarded either.
As far as things I've read, the various boards seem kindof 60-40 in favor of Epistane alone, but what say you guys about this interesting product?
