    DIM, liver support (generally a good idea when taking a number of any meds), blood pressure support. These are the main 3 I take regularly only because of TRT.

    Then there's things like Methyl-Folate, methyl-b12, P5P, some hgh supps (mostly supps that increase dopamine like sam-e/p5p/ low dose deprenyl which is not a supp though).

    Are you looking into TRT or full HRT?

    Nah no need for that stuff. Really the only supp that you might want to invest in is DIM. The rest is prescribed. Even BP support if needed.

    But once you start treating one thing, there is a tendency to want to treat the overall picture, and more supps would come into play but they are not nearly as expensive as these bodybuilding supps / test boosters.

    What is DIM, and how can it help hormones?

    A. DIM is a phytonutrient (plant nutrient) found in cruciferous vegetables. These include cabbage, broccoli, bok choy, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, kohlrabi, mustard, rutabaga, and turnip. These plants have been cultivated for thousands of years and were initially used for their medicinal benefits. The connection between DIM and hormones like estrogen has to do with similar characteristics between them at the molecular level. DIM is not an estrogen or a hormone, but like estrogen it shares the common characteristic of being poorly soluble in water. Like estrogen, DIM can be metabolized only by a special class of cytochrome enzymes that reside in cell membranes in the non-water part of cells. It turns out that DIM, when consumed in food or in absorbable formulations, encourages its own metabolism. This special metabolic pathway for DIM, and the enzymes involved, precisely overlap with the pathway needed for healthy estrogen metabolism.

    Stated simply, supplementing the diet with DIM specifically promotes beneficial estrogen metabolism and helps restore a healthy hormonal balance.

    I pretty much stick to more health related supplements like fish oil and multivitamins than anything else, plus preworkout energy or pump stuff. Don't really use anything else.
