    Had zero issues with higher e2 from supplementing DHEA. I think it is over hyped, I was on 100mg daily for at least 5-6 months. E2 did not move, DHEA-S was up in range, minimal testosterone increase which most likely was not attributed to the DHEA supplementation.

    All this was verified with blood tests and not only once but on several occasions.

    I used to take 200mg 3 times a day (600) total and I now take 100mg 3 times a day. I've never noticed any side effects at all

    Cool Any new studies on Dhea?

    Evidence or personal experience with it, especially in regard to increasing testosterone. Effective doses. And what are the negative side affects. Is there anything you can take that could significantly raise testosterone levels in men. I'm 31 and have had low t for some years. I want to avoid trt although I already tried it for 6 months with hcg and aromatase inhibitor. That was the only thing that relieved my anxiety and depression, also made me generally happier, healthier looking, etc. Is there a more natural way or am I doomed to low levels forever? Any input appreciated

    Here, I don't have time to go looking for a table, but essentially (forgive me if some substrates are incorrect. also, i've included no enzymes):

    cholesterol-17-oh progestin - dhea - androstenedione - testosterone

    There are many more branches in the pathway. My point though is to illustrate what I tried to say with words.
    If I may chime in from my schooling in biochemistry and organic chemistry... you listed the substrates, and as you can see, cholesterol needs to undergo chemical reactions to become DHEA. Whatever the chemical reaction before cholesterol becomes DHEA may be what is called a "rate limiting" reaction. meaning this is the step where your body controls the chemical pathway. If you start with DHEA, you have cheated your way along the pathway and risk upsetting homeostasis. Maybe that is why supplementing with DHEA is worse than eating eggs.

    Hello and about dhea cycling, when you start or if you allready have your Dr can answer that, it just if you use testosterone you have to have your bloid tested unless your like just take your chances and go by the way you feel because i lift weights and im older. If you are between 20 to 30 yrs of age it wont benefit you because your body is making it. Hope this helps.
