    Been taking 50mg Zhou DHEA daily for 2 years. On the 7th day, I suddenly went from debilitating fatigue to bouncing in my chair and grinning like an idiot. Going by the number of medical issues this stuff resolved, from joint pain to eye dryness to mental fog to paranoia, I think I was severely deficient. I even have slightly *less* gray hair than I did when I started. 2 years later, I still feel ... Show Full Comment

    I started taking DHEA years ago as an anti-aging trick, but discovered that it enabled me to exercise longer and gave me an energy boost.

    After taking the supplement for a month, I didn't feel any different. Energy level felt the same. Did not lose any weight or notice a change in my sleeping pattern. After reading all the positive reviews on Amazon, I was a bit disappointed.

    I can't say enough about the positive effects of DHEA. Now in postmenopause, I am finally flying into clear skies after going through a storm of nightmarish symptoms that began shortly after age 50. The worst symptoms were fatigue and weight gain. I started taking 5-10 mg daily and within 24 hours, I noticed increased energy and skipped my usual afternoon nap. After a month, my weigh in at t ... Show Full Comment

    I am 65 and have been really dragging at the end of a work day. Had my blood levels done and was only 4.8 on DHEA which is very low. I'm skeptical about nutritional supplements but my PCP advised me to try it and with my blood levels that low I knew there was a reason to try it. I started with 100 mg daily. Surprisingly my energy slowly returned to about the level it was 7 or 8 years ago. No, ... Show Full Comment
