Quick poll for you guys:
Do you use DHT management on test cycles ?
I never have, cept for a little saw palmetto.
Do you notice a distinct difference ?
I don’t. But if I go higher than 700mg of T I notice a difference when I try to urinate. After a month or so it becomes a bit more difficult to get things flowing. I assume it is because of prostate enlargement. This is just one of the negatives I experience when using 700mg of T. 500mg is perfect for me, so I doubt I’ll ever go higher again. Hair loss is not an issue for me.
Do you think saw palmetto would help with that? [/quote]
Palmetto is a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor and to some extent also inhibits the DHT receptors on prostate cells via 3-ketosteroid reductase, how strong it is up in the air, and again if your buying the capped berry the actual dosage is a guess at best, if you buy standardized extract you do better, but its still not as accurate as pharma grade obviously.
I run a little of it on cycle with test, just because its cheap and its probably better than nothing as far as the ole-prostate is concerned
I figure theres no way its as strong as fina, or dura, etc, but it might atleast take a whack at the increased DHT from the test.
We did have a report a while back of a guy no longer in the puberty stages with no history of steroid usage, prohormones included, and no history of gyno, pubertal or otherwise
Developed gyno after dosing palmetto in an attempt to boost his test by limiting its conversion to DHT (a bad plan for most people imo, unless their DHT is excessively high)
I personally did not believe him, and decided that the palmetto dose wasn’t strong enough to cause this issue.
But the truth is, we dont really know, I wasn’t really considering that palmetto was THAT effective.
No “real”, “conclusive” study has been done, but animal studies suggest it acts very similar to proscar, etc.
The standardized extract, Dosed high enough it probably would act very very similar to fina.
So I figure a small dose would have some effect, mabey spitting at a bon-fire, but its so cheap why not.
