EPIANDROSTERONE Overview Information
Epiandrosterone is a type of chemical known as an anabolic steroid. It is converted in the body to other sex hormones.

Epiandrosterone is used for weight loss, to improve athletic performance, to reduce sexual problems, and for many other uses, but there is no good scientific evidence to support its use. Epiandrosterone might also be unsafe.
