2) Any claim by anyone that their pregnenolone is special, if there is such a claim, is silly and untrue. If wanting to take it, for example for mood, any brand is the same as any other.


Qualification: micronized is better absorbed than non-micronized. Even here, however, simply taking more non-micronized gives same result.

3) Oral use of DHEA will somewhat increase testosterone levels.


What about injectable DHEA?

And injectable Ginkgo Biloba?

I don't know of an available form of injected DHEA. It would be more efficient per milligram taken, but that is easily enough solved by taking more milligrams orally.

Never heard of injectable Ginkgo biloba. Generally speaking injecting an herbal extract is a bad idea, referring to extracts not purified down to being a single, highly pure compound.

I read up a bit on DHEA a while back before determining that a little post cycle couldent hurt, but it only seems to greatly assist men once their natural DHEA levels have fallen.

I heard the same. It is mostly advertised as an anti-aging and some male lifters on HRT reported some positive results.


It did seem to have a decent anabolic effect in women through conversion to androstenediol, androstendione and testosterone. But it can just as easily convert to estrogen compounds as well.

Some women even reported masculinizing effects from higher doses.

But then again some women have taken the same dose and felt nothing.


Yes! I came across the same info and because it can go either way and the masculinization possibility I decided to not risk it and went for the progesterone instead.




I believe oral DHEA has poor bioavalibility, they do make injections and transdermals I believe.


I nearly bought the injectable DHEA but went against it for the very reasons you stated.

Thanks.

The DHEA I was going to buy had a concentration of 50mg/ml but I gave up for the reasons above.

The Ginkgo was 3mg/ml. But I will be doing a lot more research into it if I decide to try.
