                ...druid...go to google and look it up.
                Many of us older guys are taking it for a very good reason.
                Where are all the older guys?

                  Older than who? Didn't you see my forum post about me and Dick Nixon? You addressed this to older dudes, suggesting, in fact that you are younger. If it has anything to do with bigger, fatter body parts, I've never found the need. Not having a hard time? Then it could be a hair thing. Sorry. Got my granddaddies hair, thin, but still covering w/o combovers. Still the only nibble on this fishline. WHAT does it do?

                    Druid:
                    Lol if you couldnt understand the wikipedia idea of it, then I'm sorry to tell ya ya'd never understand what it is and why we "older" guys who are into the physical aspects of getting old, use it.
                    Go to google and type in: dehydroepiandrosterone.
                    If ya can't understand what it's for then, there is no hope for you.
                    Just being honest....:-)
                    Sorry that was for john Holden.

                Well, never having heard of it before I had a look at wikipedia, the only bit I could understand was the sentence that said 

                "In practice, there is currently no scientific reason to prescribe DHEA for any purpose whatsoever."

                I'll go back to not having heard of it.

    Nope, I never take anything at all for,,,, anything. People are too pill dependent. Advil for a headache, that's it.

    I took those blue pills before just to see what they do. Took a full big dose, did not do anything I already could do.

    However it did give me a pounding headache. hmm

      Figures. QWARK must be so old he nows takes stuff simply cause it's there. And he still hasn't clarified his age, while suggesting that he is "older". Not that it really matters. Can't tell me what it's SUPPOSED to do, while acting like it's some kinda STATE secret. Pretty immature for a grownup.

    OK - I went and looked it up and would have no idea why it is such a secret issue.  I notice it is involved with Cortisol which is only interesting because it came up in some research about 'anime' involving learners of second language (anything relly I guess) where shame, through being unable to speak, being put 'below' the teacher, affects cortisol which affects our ability to reason, and so prevents us learning.

    If it has any affect on hormone cycles to keep us old guys horny to the end it would get my vote, I can see that by the time I am 90 I may be slowing down a bit and anything that gets it out there will be a help for pulling me up the stairs I guess.

      ..there's nothing secret about DHEA. It's been on the market for years. It is a precursor of testosterone. As a man ages, his testosterone levels drop. DHEA assist the body in aging men to produce it. If you don't know why testosterone is so valuable to aging men then ya gotta do some more study.

    Do you use it, qwark?

    I started about a month ago and I can tell a subtle difference for the better. My workouts are a little more effective, and my energy is up slightly. I also take amino acid caps. I've been doing aminos for years.

    I have no idea why men over 40 wouldn't consider taking it. I've read nothing about side effects or long-term use to discourage using it. If anyone knows better than I about this, please lead us to some info.

      ...I have a close friend who is a biochemist. he is a powerlifter as I am.
      He told me about DHEA about 15 yrs ago.
      I've been using it and have increased my dosage to 100mg's.
      I've had my testosterone level checked by him and it is  almost normal.He does that for me in his office. He's a doctors, doctor.
      I use creatine and DHEA and at well over 60 at about 190 bodyweight, I workout with weights used by guys half my age.
      My body hasn't dissipated and most take me for being 10 -15 yrs younger than I am.
      Oh yes, the stuff works.
      My friend the biochemist weighs 150 and is benching 315 2 reps.
      He's a little powerhouse and he's in his late 50's.

    I don't Know What's Wrong with you Guys? hmm
    In NZ we don't generally have a need for any of that sort of stuff hmm
    Other than Amputation NZ men have all been cured of that inactivity problem now for 3 Years. tongue
    Ever since it became compulsory to enter into the Bi-Annual NZ Solo 3 Legged Race that runs between Auckland and Willieton; kiwi men have learned to stand straight and last the distance! big_smile
    Mind you the Long and Short of it is a side effect in guess hmm
    That it's REALLY HARD to get 3 matching Nike running shoes here! big_smile

    "You older guys, would you take DHEA?"

    This stuff is available at your local health food store.

    Do not take unless you have a compliant woman available.smile
