    DHEA vs steroids

    Some may consider DHEA, a prohormone, to be a steroid , since it is a precursor to testosterone .

    How does DHEA compare to steroids for muscle growth?

    DHEA is actually a steroid , although it's referred to as a precurser for obvious reasons. It does not take the place of nor will it compare to AAS for growth. Keeping levels optimized (or chol pathways flowing) is always a good idea whether on a cycle or TRT. To much can cause estrogen issues and a reduction in your HDL.

    In other words, there's no substitute for AAS.

    Well, that would depend on blood work. I personally use 50 mgs once per day in the morning. This is based on BW and I check it every time. If you do supplement spend the extra money and purchase a micronized product, which will get it through the first pass of the liver and be more effective for you.

    Interesting Alin. Your pathways must be converting the majority of it to estrogen. What was your dosage?
