    Long term DHEA supplementation doubles androgens and progesterone in males

    I'm not sure if this study has been posted before , at least I haven found anything under the "DHEA" tag. Anyways, it's always good to have more in vivo evidence for peaty substances and what they do in real life. This study gave aging men with partial androgen deficiency (58-69)the "low dose"...

    AlloP - Liquid Allopregnanolone For Lab/R&D

    Just a quick announcement that we have replaced the 5α-DHP in our store with allopregnanolone. The main reason for switching over to allopregnanolone is that we always wanted to provide that steroid right from the start, however we could not find a lab willing to synthesize it. Thus, 5α-DHP...

    Endocrine disruptors in cosmetics may cause postpartum depression, premature births

    Hardly a surprising finding, but it will probably come as a shock to most modern women who are the biggest consumers of such products (e.g. nail polish, perfumes, shampoo, etc). One of the reasons for this "controversy" is that doctors continue to insist that using such products during pregnancy...

    How To Increase Allopregnenolone?

    I‘ve seen 5a-DHP is a potent way to increase allopregnenolone. How about other things to increase it? Is plain pregnenolone also able to convert into allopregnenolone?

    PFS: 3a and 3b-HSD theory

    In this Friday's newsletter, I postulated the theory that it might not necessarily be the 5-AR type 1 or 2 enzymes that are defective, but rather 3a and 3b-HSD. I quote from the newsletter: "Most people think that PFS is caused by downregulated 5AR, but a lot of people actually have normal DHT...

    Progesterone and allpregnanolone are protective against COVID-19

    I think we will be seeing more studies on this topic, especially in light of the ongoing human studies administering progesterone or (gasp!) estrogen to men in the hopes of improving the course of their COVID-19 disease. The results from the estrogen trials are already - surprise, surprise -...

    Allopregnanolone As A Treatment Of Alzheimer Disease (AD)

    It looks like the recent FDA approval of allopregnanolone (ALLO) for postpartum depression may open the floodgates to ton of new research with this steroid, as well as with its reliable precursors such as pregnenolone and progesterone. I posted several studies in the past demonstrating that...

    FDA Approves Allopregnanolone As A Fast-acting, Long-lasting Antidepressant

    As many of forum users know, one of the real mechanisms of action of the SSRI drugs is not the increased serotonin but the increase in brain allopregnanolone these drugs cause. As such, there has been (secret) interest from Big Pharma for years in both allpregnanolone and its synthetic...

    Pregnenolone Is A Potent (functional) Endotoxin (TLR4) Antagonist

    It seems that pregnenolone is finally starting to look exciting to the medical industry. In addition for its intensive studies for a variety of mental issues, now studies are coming out demonstrating its endotoxin (LPS) antagonism effects. As most forum users know, endotoxin exerts its effects...

    Allopregnanolone May Soon Be Approved As A Fast-acting Antidepressant

    The patents on most SSRI drugs have either expired or are close to expiration. Lately, there have also been a number of high profile cases obtaining favorable court outcomes by blaming SSRI drugs for a host of human criminal behaviors or adverse health events. As such, Big Pharma is desperate to...

    Allopregnanolone Levels Are Low In Both Obese And Anorectic Females

    This new study is one of the few that puts the spotlight on the role of hormones (and thus metabolism) in weight disorders. Most doctors and dieticians believe that being obese or anorectic is simply an issue of eating too much or too little. However, multiple human studies have shown that it is...

    Low-dose Allopregnanolone Induces Relief From Depression In Just 24 Hours

    I posted a few studies on the powerful mood boosting effects of allopregnanolone in relation to its precursor 5a-DHP. The precursor 5a-DHP converts into allopregnanolone with almost 100% efficiency as it is the the only pathway through which it can be metabolized downstream. All successful...

    Finasteride Causes Physical Damage To Nerves, Depression, ED, Steroid Imbalance

    After a decade of denying that a thing such as PFS exists, mainstream medicine seems to be wisening up to the fact that this poison does a lot more than lower the "bad" DHT. Up until very recently, it was common to simply measure blood steroid levels and then declare that they had rebounded upon...
