I bough one from Costco of Schiff brand, 25mg pill. Is it good to take this to help balance aging? Any one had bad experience?

Re: Dhea
First you did'nt state your age as this affects different age groups and secondly to battle aging with nutrients is a lot more complicated that just taking DHEA although it has its part....

Re: Dhea
I am 55 and feel like i am weaker each day in all area, and i read some articles about improving your health with HDEA, I don't know how safe it is. want to find out if anyone has taken it for a long period with any effects, good or bad.

Re: Dhea
Pohaku... at 55 taking 25 mg a day of DHEA is safe. You could go up to 50 mg a day if you wanted....In the mid 1990's Dhea and Growth Hormones were tha rage back then and there is some truth to their anti aging benefits. But of everything on earth that has been tested for anti aging only one thing has shown to work in laboratory's and that thing is........Calorie Restriction...Now none of us want to live that way so if people would just drop their calories to a lower level without starving or feeling weak and eat certain foods (blueberry's etc) your DNA would start to slowly kick in the anti aging Genes we all have. Add to that Antioxidants (resveratrol) and a Zest for life (centenarian studies) and i think that should make a difference .. Thats my knowledge on this.....

Re: Dhea
Thanks you for your good advice, I am thinking just take 25mg once a week or every other day on the safe side, just to make sure I will be ok with this low dose, i do exercise and try to eat right, but i love to eat, that is the bad part. have quitted beer and smoking. trying to quit coffee too.
