    DHEA buy one get two free if you write a review

    I wanted to let you guys know I ordered some DHEA on Amazon and got a good deal. The brand is Vivid Nutrition. I ordered one bottle and received a voucher to write a review and get two bottles free.
    I wrote a review and let the company know and they mailed out the bottles. So for 12.50 I got three bottles of DHEA 25 mg 60 capsules. They have 50mg too.

    I thought I was on to something. Its pharmaceutical grade but I don't see micronized on the label. Should I buy some micronized?

    Well, micronized survives the "first pass" much better thus allowing better absorption. Slow Release micronized probably better even though I have not gone that route yet personally. See how you respond to what you bought and compare your DHEA-S level on your next BW. If no improvement I'd definitely switch over.

    For me, I was originally on a topical compounded cream of dhea and preg but got nothing out of it. I switched to OTC micronized and retested in a month. My DHEA level jumped by 150 pts. Sold me on it quick.

    Ah ha! I think I'll have some fun with this. Im doing a blood test in three weeks. I'll keep taking this till then. Im doing more blood work four weeks after that test, so I'll take micronized for those four weeks then compare..

    There you go. We all respond differently and this is a good opportunity for you to see how you respond. I use this:

    Amazon.com: MRM Micronized DHEA Vegetarian 50 mg Caplets, 90-Count Bottles: Health & Personal Care

    Like I said, I've not tried the SR micronized due to the excellent levels achieved with this product. Not broken - not fixing. KISS method.

    Yo kel, have you ever heard of someone's estrogen going down 12 points after beginning treatment? I've lost a lot of body fat but I didn't think that could change it that much. Went from 30 to 17 with no AI???

    A bit odd but BF% does play a big part. So can labs used and testing methods. I'm the opposite. I struggle to keep my E "up" to a good level. Be happy you don't need an AI. I'm thrilled that I don't as well but remember estrogen is a needed hormone for many reasons. DHEA supplementation can help elevate your E slightly btw.

    Interesting! I can't wait to see these next bloods. Hopefully it stays put. Im taking the DHEA, vitamin D, Zinc and Copper. Im wondering where its moved to?

    Maybe it left the building! Seriously though you are probably best between 20-30 but that is subjective and to be based on how YOU feel. Libido, joints, etc.

    Are you comparing my estro to Elvis?haha.
    Hopefully it'll stick around that range. my joints are feeling good as well as my workouts. I can feel my strength returning quickly. Thank God I found out I had low T and didn't just wither away...

    Thanks for helping too kel. I've actually been splitting up my injections to three a week. I was paranoid about gyne returning. I wonder If that's helping it stay low.

    Well, less is more here but honestly I'd think that the difference between 2 & 3 injections would be minimal with the limited amounts used in HRT.

    I agree with you on that kel. The trippy thing is my body took about three weeks to get use to my test being normal. Im not having itchy nips any more. I think I assumed it would be a smooth transition. What I believe now is that I probably had low test for so long my body needed some time to get readjusted to these changes.
