I have seen zero evidence that it raises estrogen

My bench and a few other compound lifts have gone down and I think it may be related to cortisol creating a catabolic environment

    Has it been tested for cortisol modulation in weight training populations?

    Was that because of effects on cortisol or more related to its antioxidant capability? I ask because I will resuming weight training in a month or so and need to manage cortisol during and post training. If vitamin C is likely to increase cortisol in weight training populations then I won't take it before and post workout.

    It favors a pro-oxidative environment and disrupts the hormetic response to resistance training, dose-dependently of course.

    You sure you mean that much 7-keto? It wouldn't affect strength and it's probably due to diet and not cortisol.

    You can try it but proceed with caution. If you're not on some joint support + fish oil, I'd probably use the two separately.

    I'd never heard anyone say anything bad about vitamin C. Google vitamin C cortisol and it's all positive about reducing cortisol.

    hey mr cooper thanks for your reply. Maybe i was unclear when i wrote earlier. i was asking if DAA increases estrogen to a lvl where the balance of that estrogen increase is higher than the test increase making it not worth it, not l dopa supplements. For l dopa supps i was asking if people were scared of them.

    I mean increasing l dopa is kinda manipulating brain chemistry in way. But yes i love l dopa supps and def cycle of them after a bottle or two. again thanks for your reply.

    It's tough to tell since the study did not examine this aspect. Of the bloodwork I've seen, the T:E either generally improves or stays the same. Thus, taking an AI with DAA can make DAA work that much better.

    regardless of cortisol control, I take 1,000mg C morning and night for its many benefits (esp keeping you from "getting sick"). and I use a vitamin C (and an aloe) cream for the face. C is good shyt.....

    You are wasting vitamin C in this regard. Use no more than 500mg in one sitting

    I want to make sure I get enough, I'll just piss out the rest and make my urine (expensive) yellow ....you'll be displeased to know I used to take 2,000mg twice per day in the distant past....I also used to chew the flavored 100mg chewables like gummy bears when I worked at *** when I was younger....they tasted so good it was crazy....I probably almost OD'd on C during a shift, even though that is probably not possible....

    I'm just an ahole like that.....I don't care if a study says 500mg is enough, I'd just as soon take extra to be sure. C is harmless and you piss it out anyways....if it were a fat soluble vitamin then OK, take the recommended dosage. C is cheap at 500mg or 1000mg anyways...although I get caps which are more pricey usually...
