Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid hormone precursor, which helps maintain healthy hormone levels and helps support the stress response system

Staying Healthy ▶ Supplement Facts ▶
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a steroid hormone secreted primarily by the adrenal glands and, to a lesser extent, by the testes and ovaries. DHEA and its sulfate are the most abundant steroid hormones in the human body and can be found in blood, saliva, urine and cerebrospinal fluid. DHEA serves as a “buffer” reservoir of DHEA to be used for the intracellular synthesis of various estrogens and androgens throughout the human body. DHEA production peaks during the second decade of life. Beginning in the early 30s, DHEA levels typically decline by 10% per decade. In addition to the normal decline associated with aging, other possible causes of a decline in DHEA production include inflammation, blood sugar imbalances, as well as long-term stress.
DHEA functions as the counterpart to the stress hormone cortisol. Maintaining healthy DHEA levels is crucial for balancing the catabolic effects of cortisol. Each capsule provides 5 mg of DHEA derived from the wild yam, allowing for incremental oral supplementation and flexibility with numerous hormone balancing and stress-fighting protocols.
DHEA is a naturally occurring hormone and either exerts benefits on its own, or can convert into both testosterone or estrogen depending on the body’s need. It is also a precursor for the synthesis of over 50 other hormones in the body. It is estimated that from 30-50% of testosterone in men and about 75% of estrogen in women is derived from DHEA.
The body’s production of DHEA peaks during our mid-20s and then begins a steady, progressive decline. It declines as much as 10-20% in individuals 70-80 years of age versus levels in their 20s (Orentreich et al, 1984)
Stress and aging are major causes of low DHEA levels. Because a large numbe of hormones are derived from DHEA, declining levels are associated with an increased risk of the diseases of aging.
Since DHEA influences the production of hormones, it is recommended you consult with your doctor prior to supplementing with DHEA.
