Hello and thanks for your follow up.

DHE is Dehydroepaindrosterone which is precusor of testosterone.
Few small studies indicated that it improves your testosterone level and decreases aging process. But according to studies by National institute on aging as well as the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (USA), there is not enough scientific evidence to support the idea that DHE increases serum testosterone level. Many more studies states its usefulness in old age when testosterone level actually decreases and not in young when testosterone levels are normal.

Bottom line is DHE should be used with caution under the supervision of a physician.

Hope this answers your question. If you don't have any more queries accept the answer and write the review.
