Re: Plant sterols and DHEA production
Some of the things he mentioned around natural hormone production made a lot of sense to me.
I have naturally low testosterone, but it has never seemed to hinder me in strength training, whereas I know people who have typical signs of high test (baldness, body hair, high sex drive, etc) who really struggle
In the interview, Poliquin mentions this and claims that he has trained many athletes in both camps and says that DHEA is of a high importance than test levels.
I've started using margarine with added sterols (tastes amazing in my smoothie!) as an initial test, but not sure whether the sterols are the same kind. You can buy it in supplement form, but it's pretty expensive.
