Yes, it is powerful stuff... I've been experimenting with only around 6mg/day..(cut a pill into quarters) and notice it's effects. I've been taking it for adrenal fatigue along with other herbs, Ashwaganda, Rhodiola. (Dr. Ray Sahelian recommends only 5mg with breaks as he is concerned about long term effects)For your memory you may want to try Phosphatidylserine. Though a little on the pricey side I've found its effects positive so far.. There is much research on its ability to improve brain function/memory & reduce cortisol.
Loss of Well Being
Loss of Well Being - 7-keto dhea is helping me with this problem. i am 63 yrs old and well past menopause. i took no supplements or hrt during that time even though i had bad hot flashes. as of late i just have an almost complete lack of confidence. i'm terrible at remembering names and i have memory lapses more than i would like. i start to talk and i stammer. i don't feel relaxed around people. i tire very easily, get frustrated, poor tolerance to any stress. it takes me ages to make a decision and do poorly at keeping my house, car organized and clean. i guess that's poor focus. decided to research on the internet people have told me they have great success at bioidentical hormones. well i ran across the dhea supplement and bought some. it says after a week you start noticing better well being, better sleep. i felt better after the first pill instantly more relaxed, more focused. i have been blessed with great health and don't want to take something that will jeopardize it, but everything i've read claims 25 mg dose is ok.i should mention i bought the 7-keta dhea brand not just dhea. i feel like this is something i should have been taking a long time ago.this is foolish to post so soon after starting a supplement, but just had to tell someone.(this is the 2nd day)
