Great to hear those details and the list of supplements as I am very much in favour of them. This month I had LDL of 2.11 mmol and HDL of 2.15 and a ratio of 2.07 and I attribute it to the supplements I take, but I stopped 5 days ahead of the tests so it would not interfere with the machinery and test pads giving accurate results. I still haven't started back on the MultiVitMin as I am considering some tests that I want to do without supplements to see my reduced level due to age.

Then I will go back on the DHEA and more that really help. I've been off DHEA since around June and I feel OLD in comparison.

A full National Georgraphic show on Anabolic Steroids....good explanation
45 minutes

It is not illegal to take steroids if one is not competing and the only concern is not to take too much. I make sure I research enough. I feel a LOT worse not taking it.
