High Impact: has risen my quality of life tremendously (I'm not strong, but I am able to do basic activities now without effort or injury now. Benefits-unexpected: increased energy and libido Disadvantages-unexpected: 1) has effected my body fat padding - I'm very bony because the fat tissue has deflated. It can be uncomfortable, as my body is more vulnerable to injury/discomfort due to such. 2) had alot of bladder inflamation 6 months after starting the initial dosage of 1mg. 3) must exercise to see the effectiveness; without exercise, body changes the testosterone and become more estrogen dominate it seems. 4) spider veins have appeared on legs (noticed about a year after taking) NOTE: the benefits have been greater than the disadvantages!
