DHEA by itself never had any effect on hair coloration for me. But the following did happen to me last autumn (before I'd ever even heard of using topical copper for anything): A birthmark/mole had, for no apparent reason, gotten rough and a little raised. I had some DHEA tablets on hand, so I started taking that regularly. Probably 100mg/day, some days more. After a few weeks, the roughness had gone and it was flat and smooth.mother said:Ray Peat sent me this email regarding how he made copper acetate. I can't remember where I read it but I believe RP said that DHEA is a safer alternative than copper acetate.
Worlpt said:I ended up buying simple copper supplement tablets at the online buy-1-get-2-free place . After about 10 days, I thought that my facial hair was getting darker. After another ten days, I am sure of it because the change is very noticeable. It's amazing.
I am aware that some docs, like Barnard, say that it is a possible risk for Alzheimer's (because copper is found in the plaques, just as is aluminum). But I'm thinking that since it has such an apparently beneficial effect, that it most likely isn't bad for me. I get a kick out of it every time I look in the mirror. YMMV as always.
[I'm the OP, btw]
Thanks, Charlie. Since you're interested, I'll add some things.Charlie said:Wow thanks for posting your update.
Milky said:What about liver? It's easily the best food source of copper. Then I'd say dark chocolate.
I thought I would clarify, and add that I will attempt to add more liver and oysters, as long as it doesn't seem to create an imbalance. It would seem, more zinc may be needed to balance an increase in cooper. I don't do well with zinc supplements, but at first glance, it seems the addition of oysters would add the extra zinc needed from the extra liver. I feel pretty good after eating oysters and liver, though I've gotten an increased heart rate and even tachycardia from liver before.I did notice a cooper-reddish boost to my beard with the introduction of a Peat diet (liver) about 6 months back. But, stress and aging tend to win out in the end -- my brother mentioned that I had more gray in my beard than the last time he's seen me (3 months ago).
I'm going to try liver twice a week, and more oysters. I'm not certain about the safety of getting copper from a penny. I guess you could technically make colloidal copper from a penny, but, I do remember hearing of concern in supplementing copper, apart from foods.
Any thoughts on getting copper from liquid chlorophyll?
