Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product Liked this product better when it was buy "one get one free." Since I can't make any medical claims based on lab results, I would just say that I liked the capsules better than tablets. Had good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DHEA for Athletes After reading about DHEA, I started taking it over 15 years ago . I was in my early 50's and playing competitive tennis for my local club in LA area. After only 1 week, I felt improved endurance and stamina. I also jog and lift weights. About 5 years later, while living in Italy, I stopped DHEA and started on Human Growth Hormones. In one week I felt a lack of stamina and consequently returned to DHEA. I wrestled 70 kilograms in high school and college. At 68 years old, i am 8 kilograms heavier than my wrestling weight, 50 years ago! I workout twice a week and have another longer (4.2K) jog each week and play 2 hours of tennis every Sunday. I also teach high school 5 days per week. DHEA helps give me the physique of a 35 year old athlete!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product with competative price It may work for you or may not, it depends on your hormone profile. Production of DHEA decreases with age so i could recomend to take it after 35 yo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Have been taking this product for years not necessarily from Swanson's. Started taking from Swanson's several years ago and found they are cheaper and better quality. Product I feel has kept me feeling younger than my years. Gives an overall feeling of well being after you have taken for a while. Won't be without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Help I Need As I age, I have had problems with my testosterone level sagging. I have found that taking Swanson Ultra DHEA is a safe and effective way to stimulate my body to produce the testosterone levels I need to keep active and be healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff ! My decision to take DHEA came as a result of research into it's benefits. The decision was a highly personal one and, for me I believe, the correct one as to quality of life issues. At the age of 62 and after many "hard miles" throughout my life, I find DHEA to be an absolute God-send as to the enjoyment of the remaining miles I have left before completing my journey. I thank Swanson's for making it available to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The "other" vitamins I highly recommend DHEA, Ginger Root, CoQ10, DMAE. Individually these have a measurable result. . in combination they have a dynamic result. since we are restricted from any medical references, you will need to do your own research as to the specifics of each of these, but they are all fundamental to our bodies. Swanson Ultra brand is / by way of testing on myself / found to be solid and standardized quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Old snake oil? Don't waste your time and money It had no affect on me at all good or bad. If it had given me an headache, that would have been something, but not even that. Good job it was a low price.
