Usage: A steroid hormone that is present in normal human urine as a minor constituent , it is a less active 3β-isomer of the androgen Androsterone (A635535). Controlled Substance.
Epiandrosterone is a prohormone that is completely legal and available over the counter. It may also appear under the name 3b-hydroxy-etioallocholan-17-one. Epiandrosterone is a precursor to Stanolone, a powerful steroid hormone. Epiandrosterone can be found naturally occuring in most mammals and is excreted in urine as a normal part of human metabolism. One of the reasons that this prohormone is legal because it has been found to be naturally occurring in pine pollen. Epiandrosterone and Androsterone are very closely related. Androsterone is the 3-alpha isomer and epiandrosterone is the 3-beta isomer of this compound. The actions of the two isomers in the body are different, but still very similar. Most epiandrosterone supplements are actually a mix of the two isomers, meaning that they contain some androsterone as well as the main ingredient epiandrosterone.
1. Epiandrosterone is a naturally occurring steroid synthesized in the adrenal cortex, gonads, brain, and gastrointestinal tract.
2. It is less active than androsterone and excreted in small amounts in normal human urine.
3. Epiandrosterone is a metabolite of the most abundant adrenal androgenic steroid in young adult humans, but is not completely inactive and is considered an effector as well.
4. Epiandrosterone is a precursor or substrate for cytochrome P450 species and enzymes (EC 184.108.40.206, 25-hydroxycholesterol 7alpha-hydroxylase) that produce 7alpha- and 7beta-hydroxylated metabolites in the human brain and other organs.
5.These 7-hydroxylated derivatives exert anti-glucocorticoid and neuroprotective effect.
