How to Increase DHT Levels with Creatine

September 10, 2009

DHT and CreatineA new study concluded that a side effect of creatine use is an increase in Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) levels.

This study investigated resting concentrations of selected androgens after 3 weeks of creatine supplementation in male rugby players. It was hypothesized that the ratio of dihydrotestosterone (DHT, a biologically more active androgen) to testosterone (T) would change with creatine supplementation.

After 7 days of creatine loading, or a further 14 days of creatine maintenance dose, serum T levels did not change. However, levels of DHT increased by 56% after 7 days of creatine loading and remained 40% above baseline after 14 days maintenance (P < 0.001). The ratio of DHT:T also increased by 36% after 7 days creatine supplementation and remained elevated by 22% after the maintenance dose (P < 0.01).

Creatine supplementation may, in part, act through an increased rate of conversion of T to DHT.

This is a substantial discovery, as creatine is a natural substance already present in the human body and thus provides a safe, cost-effective option for those who want to increase their DHT levels naturally.

How To Use Creatine To Naturally Boost DHT Levels

Use creatine as part of a total supplement stack. Increase your creatine to 4x your regular amount for one week (2x if you use creatine gluconate), drinking plenty of water throughout, then go back down to your previous dose. The creatine will increase your bio-available testosterone, giving you energy and increasing your libido.
