    I can't help but to wonder the incredibly low DHEA levels these men had. Makes me suspect that DHEA levels are very low in angina pectoris survivors, and that DHEA supplement could be very therapeutic in these cases.

    LOL, I did not intent to do that and for the record I get no royalties from that vendor (or from any other for that matter). That's why I am typically reluctant to mention vendors publicly, as it sounds like endorsement when it is really just mentioning what I have tried in the past.

    This has actually been demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt in several human trials. Low DHEA or DHEA-S levels are found in almost every heart attack patient in the ER and their survival largely depends on whether their DHEA levels rebound or not. It matches well with estrogen being high in critically ill patients and estrogen suppressing DHEA synthesis.
    Estrogen Levels Predict Mortality In The Critically Ill
    Even A Slight Increase In Estrogen Strongly Decreases DHEA Levels

    Could mild headache be a sign of increased T or DHT?
    I've experienced it from both Tongkatali and Tribulus.

    Why do I feel like Tribulus might worsen hair loss? Or am I in the old-school train of thought?!

    I get this too from TT. Not from DHT, that's for sure. I don't think it's test, either. Anyone know what causes this? Maybe high/low blood pressure?

    What Is Sarsaparilla Root?


    Scientific Evidence For Sarsaparilla Root:
    Sarsaparilla And Inflammation
    Sarsaparilla was found to have a similar antioxidant profile to salicylic acid, acting on both COX-1 and COX-2 pathways [5].

    Sarsaparilla And Cancer
    Cancer is both complex and highly variable Nevertheless, the process of tumor growth is similar in many different cancer cell lines. Sarsaparilla has been foundto provide benefits for cell lines including cervical, lung, gastric, ovarian, and breast cancers. It was shown to reduce cancer cell viability through enhanced ERK signalling [6], activation of caspase-3, PARP and Bax, blocking AKT activation, inhibition of NF-κB activation, and regulating cIAP-1, XIAP, Bcl-XL and Bcl-2 expression [7].

    Sarsaparilla And Gout
    Sarsaparilla has been shown to inhibit xanthine oxidase through a combination of 9 different constituents [1]. This has backed up and explained much of the ability for sarsaparilla to treat gout.

    Sarsaparilal And Psoriasis
    Flavonoids such as quercetin significant orthokeratosis, anti-inflammatory and antiproliferative activity [2], which supports the use of sarsaparilla in the treatment of psoriasis.

    Sarsaparilla And Detoxification
    Although the word “detox” is obscure and non-specific, it is often used to describe the ability to remove metabolites, and unwanted chemicals from the body. Sarsaparilla is a common addition for “detox” purposes. This has been backed up with research involving the pharmacokinetics of nicotine. Sarsaparilla (namely the component oxyresveratrol) was shown to increase the detoxification and elimination of this chemical through enhancing CYP2A6-mediated metabolism [3]. This gene is a part of the larger cytochrome P450 hemoproteins which are responsible for roughly 75% of metabolism and have been found in nearly all forms of life on earth [4].

    Sarsaparilal And Pain
    In mice studies, sarsaparilla was shown to reduce the sensation of pain through prostaglandin interaction and inhibition [5].

    You really can't trust these summaries. You have to do your own research before actually stating something is good, and my post was more aimed at people interested in herbs and people who might find Tribulus unsuitable for them. They might be inspired to research the herb.

    Been using a week. Insomnia after exercise or late coffee is reducing. Better recovery post exercise. Not waking up so highly stressed and easily triggered. I'm taking it to test if it really lowers prolactin.

    My girl is experiencing more interesting results. Her lifelong patches of eczema on her hands and feet are smoothing over and healing. She would also experience random pain in those those areas too, especially during times of high stress. Peripheral neuropathy? Her mom experiences the same thing but much worse. Regardless, that's completely stopped by the 3rd day of taking TT.

    About 700-800mg/day. Single serving. Morning.
