As we age, the more our DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) levels decrease. DHEA is a naturally secreted enzyme from the adrenal glands and is converted into testosterone and estrogen. When you’re lacking in DHEA, your body’s hormonal levels decrease, and unfortunately, you can’t get DHEA through food sources. So for people in their late 20’s and beyond -- around the time your body’s natural hormone production becomes limited -- the only option is to use a DHEA supplement.
While DHEA excels at supporting healthy hormone levels, this essential supplement has also been clinically studied for its ability to optimize brain health, immune system function, libido, and mood. DHEA is also crucial to building lean, muscle mass. This multifaceted hormone and its metabolite dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S) provide key hormonal benefits for women as well as men. Multiple studies have shown that low levels of DHEA-S are linked with several age-associated conditions, including cognitive decline, cardiovascular disease, bone loss, depression, sexual dysfunction and many inflammatory disorders.
By supplementing your diet with DHEA, you’re ensuring optimal hormone health along with a host of other benefits to give your body the tools it needs to feel younger, stronger and healthier.
The exact number of capsules to be taken should be determined by blood testing and the advice of a physician. Generally, take one (1) to three (3) capsules in the morning only. DHEA serum blood tests are suggested 3 to 6 weeks after initiating DHEA replacement therapy to optimize individual dosing.
