Some info on DHEA, studies show no anabolic effects?
Some stuff I found on wiki, mayo clinic, and web md
DHEA serves as precursor to male and female sex hormones androgens and estrogens.
A bill has been introduced, in March 2009, in the U.S. Senate (S. 641) that attempts to classify DHEA as a controlled substance under the category of anabolic steroids
Evidence is inconclusive with respect to if DHEA has an effect on strength in the elderly.
In younger men, no statistically significant effect of DHEA supplementation on lean body mass, strength, or testosterone levels was found in a randomized placebo-controlled trial.
