Supplements Tim vs. Aging

Tim vs Aging – Day 51 – Missed the calorie budget a bit – plus DHEA – What is it, what does it do?

Got up late, had lunch at Rainforest with my nephew and his three beautiful kids, huge pork BBQ/hamburger, but I didn’t eat it all. At suppertime, I ate half of a BBQ chicken and onion rings dinner that I got through Delivery Dudes. Then I remembered that it was MMA night at the Miller Ale House and had half of a calamari appetizer there (you can’t come in for the show and only order a soda, that would just be wrong…). I busted my calorie count by about 75 calories, not too bad. But I’m a bit embarrassed, having missed so many workouts last week.

I like to talk about the various supplements and how they should be helping you. Most of them are safe to the nth degree. I came across this video on DHEA which was interesting but also contained a note of caution. DHEA is banned as a supplement in most sports, and in fact, is available only by prescription in a lot of countries. The narrator of this video cautions that DHEA is a very powerful hormone that should be taken with some care since too much can be as bad as too little.

Much of this is at a high technical level, DHEA affects functions in the brain, helping to preserve neurons and studies have shown that it improves thinking. It also affects testosterone among other important hormones and could be considered a precursor. If you click to 26:33 you will find a chart that says it increases the body’s ability to burn fat, improves bone density and liver function.

The video also talks about pregnenolone, which appears to be a companion to DHEA (he cautions that if you improve one and the other is deficient, you will not be helping yourself). The micronized version of each (the best of the oral methods) of these is available on Amazon.

I may try this in Phase II of Tim vs. Aging, but since the video expresses such caution, I may do a 1-2 week trial once I settle into the new routine. I will need this to be an isolated test. Not sure yet how I will proceed.
