    Secondly, the main use for DHEA is post cycle therapy when levels mock those of people who are aged 50.
    Oops I went back and read the study, I see they did test "young men".

    I'm still on the fence about DHEA but this has piqued my interest.

    Do you know of a study actually showing a test increase in younger men? That would be interesting.

    Sure I will look for one bro. Again I wasn't being a **** in my last post or anything haha it was late so my wordinng sounded a bit malicious.

    But I originally started researching it for people with low test levels e.g. PCT or older folks. It is amazing how well DHEA works in older people. I think it has good implications in us too, possible keeping a more normal influx of test. Normally test is released in a pulsatile fashion, this might even that out. Or possibly we just need to take higher dosages such as 300-500. I am sure that is the case here.

    Anyone here taken that high dosages and is under 30 years of age?

    Yeah I thought that might have been a typo honestly lol thats why I didn't say anything about it.


    James- did you notice different effects at 2g as opposed to say 200? I am really curious to hear about it for someone who is younger.

    I mean at 2g I believe that the cost:benefit ratio starts becoming a bit crazy but heck it still has implications, once, again for people in PCT.

    I noticed mass/weight gains and what I have to describe as full blown *roid rage*

    Damn near felt out of control.

    Thatís never happened to me on anything else.

    When I took a daily dosage of above 1000mg I used 10mg of nolva ed or eod and only stayed in that range for short spurts.

    I basically wanted to see what would happen with higher dosages and have been using it ever since (sanely.. kind of)

    One great effect at that dosage was the *eat tons and donít get fat* effect

    Plus when you have a kilo of dhea powder lying around things like cost benefit ratios tend to fade out of focus.

    Interesting for sure bro. What did your dosage schedule look like and how did you do it? You said you were only at 1g of DHEA daily for a short time so I was just curious how you dosed it otherwise.

    Also how did the DHEA powder taste?

    At the upper end I dosed it throughout the day a few hundred milligrams at a time.

    Otherwise its once a day usually in the morning.

    The powder is pretty much tasteless with maybe the slightest hint of bitter aftertaste.
