DHEA and Estradiol in Men
« on: April 07, 2013, 06:58:00 pm »
Hey Peak,

Reading through this article on ZRT labs site it occurred to me that this is the first time I have seen a researcher indicated that DHEA supplementation in men only effects Estradiol levels while in Women in affects Testosterone.  Maybe this is an over generalization because of the assumption that supplemented primary hormone precursors by sex tend to go to the secondary hormone pathway or something but I found this interesting and certainly has me rethinking my DHEA routine when I begin using it again,  i.e. finding the minimum dose that has a positive impact on my mood/mental clarity.

Interested in your thoughts on the subject.

worthless, It may have some useful cognitive properties. Maybe.

These studies do not show that effect and I have read many times that it's a crapshoot:  you don't know which path it will follow which is why the studies are probably mixed:

http://jap.physiology.org/content/87/6/2274.short
"Effect of oral DHEA on serum testosterone and adaptations to resistance training in young men"

http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa054629
"DHEA in Elderly Women and DHEA or Testosterone in Elderly Men"
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
