Ingredients & DescriptionDHEA is a critical hormone in the human body that is continuously gaining recognition for its impact on overall well-being. It is the most abundant hormone in humans and other mammals. DHEA plays a vital role in overall health, mood, blood sugar balance, heart health, sexual libido, and immune system response. It has recently become a key hormone measured to determine patients' health when dealing with immune response problems, depression, and lack of libido. DHEA is one of the most important chemical predictors of health and disease.
DHEA is produced in the adrenal gland and is stimulated by cholesterol. It then becomes androstenedione, which is converted directly to testosterone. Testosterone levels (estrogen levels in women) peak when people are in their 20s and 30s. It then begins to decline dramatically. Consequently, DHEA deficiency is associated with a variety of conditions such as obesity, diabetes, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, and autoimmune disorders. DHEA deficiency can also be caused by a variety of drugs such as insulin, corticosteroids, opiates, and danazol. DHEA supplementation has been considered to be one of the key hormones in extending and improving life. It is effective in helping to treat depression or other mood related disorders. It can help to increase sexual libido and has been used in the induction of labor. It is considered a viable treatment for systemic lupus erythematosus and adrenal insufficiency. DHEA can help promote weight loss and has been shown to lower obesity levels.Because DHEA stimulates the production of the hormones androgen and estrogen, it is not recommended for long-term use for people suffering from hormone related cancers.Always consult with a physician before taking any new medication or supplements.
