The Secret Sauce To Effective Testosterone Replacement
In order for you to regain your youthful feel, testosterone alone is not enough. You need something to help your cells absorb the testosterone.
Testosterone is floating freely in your body. In fact, most of the testosterone in your body is not used, it is wasted.
In order for your body to absorb the unused testosterone, it needs something called DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone). This hormone, when used properly, helps make your cells sticky to absorb the testosterone into your cells.
The best format to apply and receive the biggest benefit of DHEA is cream. Oral pills have little to no impact, because the DHEA has to go through your digestive track first. After going through, there is very little benefit left for your body.
The combination of cream based testosterone and cream based DHEA is the one two punch for testosterone replacement in men. Think of it as Montana to Rice in football. One is great because of the other, not on it’s own.
