- Dietary Supplement
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a natural steroid hormone produced by the adrenal glands and a precursor of the human sex hormones, testosterone and estrogen. With age, production of this hormone declines. Current research indicates supplementation with DHEA (when found to be low) can improve both physical and psychological wellbeing.
Plasma levels of DHEA begin to decline progressively with age starting around age 40, such that plasma levels of DHEA at age 70 are usually about 20 percent of those in young adults. Reports indicate elderly individuals who supplement with 5-20 mg/day DHEA, as an encapsulated powder in two or three divided amounts, often experience improved mood, energy levels, memory, appetite, and skin condition. Supplementing with DHEA is also associated with supporting cardiovascular health and carbohydrate metabolism, and enhancing weight management, cognitive function, and immune health.
