    Alpha male feeling


    Can someone tell me what gives the alpha male feeling, as in which hormones makes this happen?

    Is it free test or DHT or Dopamine?

    You know that clear headed agressive assertive male feeling..

    According to Dr. John, DHT is responsible for "everything male"... I assume that includes "alpha male".

    You just don't want your DHT over range.

    Not a big fan of saw palmetto, I think it does actually lower DHT.

    Nettle won't lower DHT, it just blocks it from hair / prostate receptors... great stuff!

    yeah exaxctly saw palmetto lowers dht

    alright cool thing about that nettle.. do you know of any good brands, like do i have to have activate or will now nettle do as well?

    are there natural ways to increase dht, not insanely but a nice boost, or can this only come from an increase in testosterone?

    I've always liked the really pure extracts like activate... I bought 95% bulk nettle but its not in stock at NP. It can be found elsewhere by googling.

    Not that I know of (except for T gel which is not natural), maybe someone else knows a natty supp?

    Don't know of any. Interesting how so many of us seem to go into crazy high DHT-land after being on TRT for a while. Mine has finally managed to come down within range (on the upper limit of high). For a long time, it was way off the charts. Pregnenolone cream has helped it to decrease nicely. My hair is a lot happier now too!

    MMV2 helps alot with aggression but it IS a prohormone so take proper precautions...DTH is another fantastic supplement for increased aggression especially when stacked with divanil(buy in bulk from NP) and the great thing is there both natural...

    Not meant to be a "cop out", but I think it has more to do with the "hormonal symphony" than with any one particular hormone, IMO.

    I am not able to figure out your current list.
    Usually we look at a list of hormones in three places

    blood
    urine
    saliva

    The more complete test you do, the more information your doc have to help you.

    Possibilities are practically endless, so point comes quickly about testing what is practical or affordable.

    If I understand your question to mean which hormones contribute to that feeling, I would say the "Big 4" are free testosterone, estradiol, DHT and IGF-1.

    If there are other problems (thyroid/adrenals) they may detract from the feeling, also.

    correct, my list i meant what i typed above i.e.

    dopamine dht free test

    what else is added?

    @Jansz: in three weeks i will have results then you can analyze the **** out of my results. i will probably not be able to implement everything you say and check as often with all kinds of tests, but i will have adrenal urine profile, thyroid panel, male hormone panel, vit b12 ferritin, fecal analysis

    thx in advance keep on the lookout for my lab results!

    My experience - I have become a little more short-tempered and impatient with people and frustrating situations. I have to be more careful not to lose my temper...esp. at work. Generally, there is more energy...so workouts are better. Libido has improved somewhat, but not as much as I'd like. There is a lot less anxiety and this feeling of calm which is difficult to explain. Sometimes I feel so calm that I don't really give a sh*t about doing anything...So I almost have to force myself to do things; hence, I'm less motivated. Definitely a mixed bag, in my case.

    exactly.. i don't experiece it now but i once experienced it when taking a high dosed trib product.. seemed to be working for three to four days

    i sat different, talked different, i.e. whatever i said that came out of my mouth was pure conviction, i remember i had that look of determination and aggression as well that if you don't go my way i will crush you, short tempered, invincible

    too bad it lasted a few days

    kinda like the guy in apocalypto that leader of the mayans, who is chasing the main character in the movie probably would have beaten the **** out of him as well when i was on the trib haha

    Unless you're doing supraphysiological doses of steroids, I don't think you're going to get what you're looking for.

    The manic, almost high feeling is, I believe, more associated with some of the more androgenic synthetics, not for discussion here.

    Certainly tuning yourself up properly (if medically warranted) would make you feel better.

    Call Dr. Crisler.

    And to amend my prior post, it's the interrelationship between those four. If one is out of whack...
