Don't take it!: Who knows what's in what you're buying - probably not dhea. If it is dhea, it's metabolized to estrogen, testosterone or cortisone - and you don't get to pick which one your body converts it into. Why take something that you don't know why you're taking it, what it's supposed to do, or what harm it could cause. Don't waste you $. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.
