    Yes DHEA!

    You can take it anytime, I'm fairly sure that the half life is around 10 hours. This also depends on the user.

    Estrogen related sides and increased facial hair are the main effect. If you want to have clamy hands, oily skin,maybe lose a little hair,have a thicker beard, and be depressed DHEA is for you. It may increase the size of your prostrate as well.

    At your age I would say 100mg-200mg ED is probably good enough. You can use a low dose AI like ATD (25mgED) if you notice any estrogen related side effects. Because it does convert to DHT, I would not recommend higher dosages, especially if you are prone to male pattern baldness. If you have a problem with this or prostate issues I would advise taking 1-5mg finasteride in conjunction. DHEA should provide some minor to moderate strenth increases and increased sex drive for you. You wont put on much size if any because it is predominately androgenic and not so much anabolic. Do not take this before bed as it will interfere with your natural melatonin cycles and may cause you to either not sleep well, or have really bad dreams. You may even want to consider using low doses of melatonin EOD while taking DHEA if you have any sleep problems,. however I would advise to cycle this on/off every 30 days or so. I have effectively used DHEA and ATD to cut significant bodyfat while dieting and kept around the exact same weight, meaning increased muscle and fat loss. The metabolites of DHEA are very good for promoting fat loss, especially the 7OXO-DHEA metabolite. Administration can be either oral or transdermal.

    Okay Luke, where did you hearabout DHEA interferring with Melatonin?
    I've never heard of this assumption before.
    Is this an assumption that you came up with via your perssonal DHEA consumption?

    You say Oral or Transdermal, what about suppossittory DHEA use? I hear this is popular among Sci Fi fans.

    Thanks for tricks...I take now 100mg on morning + 100mg before sleeping (plus 30 mg melatonine for a good night...).
    I don't think that DHEA have all this side effect...I hope it increase my testosterone level and increase muscle mass...and that DHEA decrease my fat. I hope...
    Another question.
    Can i mix DHEA with other integrator like protein,creatine,glutamine (in the same shaker)??? Thanks.

    Dude your not seriously taking 30mg of Melatonin everyday? Thats way too much unless you have some serious sleeping problems, severe insomnia maybe.

    Thanks for your help...
    When I was younger I was a athletic guy. In decent shape. Not too big but Could bench 275...Blaa Blaa...Then I hurt my back. (opted not to have surgery personel reasons) and for the last 5 years my weight sky rocketed and my muscle mass went out the door. 2 years ago I started a regimen Of DHEA and amino acids on top of a good multi vitamin and super b complex..I lost 45 pounds in 3 months and felt great..Still had some back pains but I got by it seemed like I healed faster and my mental clarity was greater.
    The doctors I see started nerve blocks they call them steroide injections in my spine..They didnt work and I gained more and more weight needing more and more pain kilelr to get through the day at work.

    Now In the last month I started my regimen again of DHEA aminos and the above mentioned items..I have mental clarity and energy..its not a fluke...its not placebo..I am positive I had Low T...and this suppliment bailed me out..So i am waling for 10 minuts a day and jogging for 15 minuts a day with little down time...If I tried this a few months ago my back would have felt like crap....Also I seem to need less of my pain killers I have cut in half what I was taking...

    Dhea works for building lean muscel mass and weight loss but to help Like I said I take the aminos that way my bodie uses carbs more efficiantly and well you guys im sure know all the bennifits of them.


    I will post more results every week..When i started last month I was at 289. 5 years ago i was at 210...2 years ago i was at 230...My goal by Aug is 240 and I think thats safe I am eating very well and cut out most sugars.......Most lol..... 278 is my current weight..I have built alot of muscle so im sure the actualy BMI has lowered alot .


    Oh I am 33 years old have 2 herniated disks doctor diagnosed and the low t was also... I take 3 25 Mg pills a day.I find If I take any more I get very mean and feel like I did when I was 19 lil too mean...The Dhea is a brand called schiff its from wallmart..I tried one form GNC and one from wallgreens and this has the best effect I feel..others didnt do anything...

    Mike

    Would DHEA have any benefit on someone younger or is this supplement mainly for the older crowd when your hormones start to dwindle down?

    If your under 30 you should be fine without DHEA. One of the androgens DHEA converts to is DHT and one of the reasons its beneficial to ''older'' men is because DHT levels generally start to decrease at ~30 years of age.
