    Why Dr Peat advises to use DHEA Progesterone to grow hair

    Goodday! I can now begin to see why Dr Peat advises to use DHEA with Progesterone to grow hair. The DHEA get's metabolized towards E1 Estrone ( and or E2 ) [6] which support the glycolytic 'cancerous like' state of hair growth that uses glutamine and glucose as a source that convert to...

    Anti-Peat Why do children have so good health if their androgens low?

    After thinking about peating, I wondered: why are children so metabolically ideal that they even overtake elite athletes by this factor, if their androgenic level is very low? Is it strange that everyone on the forum is talking about the rejuvenating effect of androgens, if children are the...

    Progesterone may help quitting smoking

    A very interesting article, on a topic that has been studied for decades but has not seen much mainstream media exposure mostly because it does not fit the narrative. Namely, that "addictions", including smoking, are mostly genetically determined and not much can be done about them except manage...

    Confusion about T use

    In this recent talk Georgi is endorsing very high dose Testosterone use (100 mg a day), saying (according to the study) even 50 mg per day wasn't good enough. I'm very confused now, since I saw him recommend a physiological dose of about 5 mg per day. I use a few milligrams of T transscrotally...
