    Hmm. You Have two options:

    Take it, and tell us if you die
    or
    Don't take it, and live. :biggrin:

    __________________________________________
    dehydroepiandrosterone

    In the body, it is produced by the adrenal glands and your body automatically converts it to testosterone.

    The suppliment, DHEA, is a precursor to testosterone. Injesting it, I am highly skeptical that it can be converted to testosterone.
    When I took it for a while, I felt energized. I wouldn't believe any of the body building or anti-aging claims that I've read.

    I took it for about a year, about 5 years ago. It definitely thickened the hair growth on my body and slowed greying.

    I quit taking it when I began having problems peeing, thinking that it was affecting my prostate. It may have been the case, as the problem went away and I never went back to taking DHEA.

    Hmm. Thanks Caneadea. Usually I post something like that, then I go off and figure out what it is, and then come back and post again. But thanks for the explaination. Google never gets to the point...

    So it affected your prothstate pecker? Well, I know I'm not going to take it any time soon!

    Interesting information form Wikipedia on the topic.
    • In Canada, a prescription is required to buy DHEA.
    • in March 2007, in the U.S. Senate (S. 762) that attempts to classify DHEA as a controlled substance under the category of anabolic steroids.
