Is DHEA Really a Good Steroid?

Read this article in the NY times, and got me wondering about DHEA. Anyone have any experience with DHEA?

It’s been awhile, but, isn’t it just as likely to be converted to estrogen, as testosterone?


It’s a very weak androgen.

While it may convey some anabolic effect to women, it’s unlikely to have any such effects on young, healthy men.

And yes, it can also convert to estrogen.
