Is It Safe To Use Anabolic Booster And DHT Blocker At The Same Time?

Hello I'm 20 and i do weight lifting and i would like to use anabolic boosters, not steroids, but something like this on the link below (copy and past to view): WWW.WWWW.WW But i'm afraid that with a testosterone level increased my level of DHT may also increase and therefore prone to hair loss, which obviously, i don't want to lose hair.So i was thinking about using a natural product called Saw Palmetto which blocks an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase which is responsible for the convertion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone the one responsible for hair loss due to over accumulation on the top of the head. The Saw Palmetto product i'm thinking about buying is the one shown in the link below: WWW.WWWW.WW So my question is, is it safe to use both the anabolic booster and the DHT blocker at the same? And will the DHT blocker do any effect? Or is ok to just take the anabolic booster (with no side effects)?Best regards

Hello and welcome to HCM,
It does seem like an oxymoron taking an Anabolic Booster designed to increase testosterone and a DHT blocker which blocks the formation of the very product produced by testosterone.

I just can't sanction in my good judgement to manipulate your biochemistry in this manner. It is just not this simplistic. Did your doctor tell you were low in testosterone? He can treat that if you are. Taking an anabolic booster is not necessary to achieve bodybuilding goals.

It is safe to supplement with isolated whey, BCAA and creatinine if hydration is maintained.

Good luck in matching a nutritional regime compatible with your work-out goals.
