The Benefits of Supplementing DHEA While On a Steroid Cycle
DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone) has been used for over 20 years now as a safe and legal way to supplement for the right levels of testosterone for sports and training. It can be especially beneficial when on a Steroid Cycle.
A Steroid Cycle refers to when an individual uses Steroids in a pattern. Like taking them for a certain amount of time, and then stopping for a while before anymore continued use. Some people also "stack" their steroids, which means that they take two or more different anabolic steroids at once.
The use of DHEA as a dietary supplement naturally produces more testosterone in the user’s body. Using DHEA while on a Steroid Cycle can aid you (especially for people age 30+) to accelerate your muscle growth, to lose weight, and to help you to stay healthy. This is especially true when used along with a regimen of a balanced diet and a training program.
In a 2013 study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology showed that the use of DHEA supplements could lead to an increase in testosterone levels, which could help improve your physical performance and exercise. In the study, eight middle-aged men were given DHEA the evening before they were asked to complete a high-intensity training and exercise program. The results showed that the use of the DHEA supplements seemed to increase the men's testosterone levels and prevent the levels from declining even during the high-endurance exercises.
Furthermore, DHEA can also be used during your Steroid Cycle to strengthen the immune system, to improve mood and memory, to improve sexual function (even as an erectile dysfunction treatment, which a small study published in the Journal Urology in 1999 showed), to decrease fat, to prevent obesity, for better skin health, improved athletic performance, to increase energy, to increase the sex drive, to increase muscle mass and bone density, and in males can also increase sperm production.
Combining DHEA with your Steroid Cycle can help you to gain the optimum benefits necessary to produce even more effective and stronger results in any sports area and endurance-wise as well. Both men and woman have reported an increase in their libido after using DHEA.
DHEA is also suggested for and being tested as a treatment for depression and can help to promote a feeling of well-being. According to another study by the Journal of Medical Virology, DHEA has also shown potential at strengthening the immune system by warding off viral infections, even lethal ones. It does so by upping the production of antibodies which are responsible for locating and stopping viral infections before they become hazardous.
Ultimately, when used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle and diet, DHEA can be the booster that you need for your next Steroid Cycle.
