Also, what dosages of D3 are good for boosting T? I have seen several articles that say more D3 is a good thing - but no dosage recommendations.
For D3, I'd say between 5K and 10K units per day, although I've seen much higher dosages. It's more of a compliment than an actual booster.

As for the T-Bomb, I've seen it run successfully solo and stacked. Not sure if stacking it with DAA would help, but I don't think it would hurt. Though generally, when dealing test boosters, or any new supp targeted for one purpose, I recco using only one, so you know if there is a change, what's causing the change. If you use both, and you felt you got a boost, or had numbers to back it up...you'd have to think, which one was it? Yeah, could be the combo might be the best, but I'd stick to running one, then the other, and gauging what you have from each.. Then possbily stacking them up.. Would take longer, and cost more money, but you'd also be walking away with better knowledge of what you put in your body, and what it does for you, or doesn't do for you..

I think this is really sound advice.

Nothing boosts test like test. It's far cheaper than the amount you'd spend on test boosters. Go get your levels checked. Under 340 and generally you'll get it prescribed.

The only issue with real test, is the delivery method. Not many people are too keen on sticking themselves, and their insurance may not cover going to a clinic to have it done by a nurse or Doctor. The alternitives would be a gel or roll-on, both of which have critics with negative opinions. I agree injected test is the best way to jump the numbers, I just don't think it's right for everyone.

That's the choice you as an individual have to make. You don't need to go to the doc to get stuck. More often than not you will do it yourself at home. The critics with negative opinions are generally uninformed, and just see dem dere steroids. You have to keep an open mind about this, as TRT, and anti aging clinics become more prevalent, and in powerlifting as well.

Understandable..Myself, I could probably do it, or have my GF stick me if I ever felt I needed it. I just feel sticking a needle isn't something most people would really want to do, for whatever reason.

If it were no big deal to stick, I think a lot more people would be doing it. Personally, I think Low-T is a natural part of the aging process, not a medical condition. We never saw nearly as many Low-T ads like we do these days. It's all powered by big-pharma, so the more people they can convice to take TRT, the more money they will make in the long run.

With the TRT - whart are the realistic side effects? Not, the " we want to scare you away, liberal media version" but rather, the truth . ( if any one has actual experience)The benefits sound good but testicular atrophy is not an acceptable condition.....

I completely agree. However, I am 27 my test level as of 6 months ago arein the 260 range. Almost half of what it should be. I am not on drugs. Have I considered it? Yes. I have alot of factors working against me though. I'm 275 lbs, I sleep 4-5 hours a night, I am on my feet working 12-14 hours a day. If I lost weight, slept more and worked less it might be different. Not much, and certainly not enough to bring my levels up to the point where prescriptions aren't "reccomended". I'm not saying you will eventually have to go on TRT, the generations prior to us never did, and they turned out just fine. I'm just saying that if you feel like you need it, go he a scrip.

It depends. The doctor I see would prescribe hGC to prevent atrophy. It may have just been my age. Other risks, not much, gyno maybe, but this stuff about blowing your heart up, or heart attacks, it's all overplayed. Like telling you that aspirin will give you a brain bleed because it thins your blood. The docs aren't going to give you a hand flull of needles and a bottle of test and tell you figure it out. You are given legit instruction on usage, effects, and sides, it's up to you.

I have a good friend who is on it. 1 shot, ever 2 weeks to bring him to normal levels. Has not experienced any atrophy.

Older generations also thought diabetes was a death sentence, medicine evolves. I honestly think TRT can improve the quality of life for a lot of people.
