Product Information

Dehydroepiandrosterone, commonly abbreviated as DHEA, is the most abundant steroid in the bloodstream and is present at even higher levels in brain tissue as a neurosteroid. However, DHEA levels are known to fall precipitously with age, falling 90% from age 20 to age 90!

DHEA is popularly known as a precursor to the numerous steroid sex hormones (including estrogen and testosterone) which serve well-known functions. In fact, nearly 1,000 studies on men and women show its effectiveness for increasing sexual desire, arousal, readiness, and drive. Studies on women report more ease in menopause symptoms and a healthier postmenopausal state.

DHEA actually plays a role in over 150 metabolic functions supporting stress relief, weight management, and healthy aging. DHEA balances the effects of cortisol, the stress hormone. It serves as a precursor to steroid hormones that promote lean muscle and fight fat accumulation. It gets produced by the brain as well as the adrenal glands. And DHEA is most highly concentrated in the nervous system where it supports positive moods and overall wellness.

Warnings

  • It is important to assess the need for DHEA supplementation within the context of a thorough medical examination.
  • Your doctor may also want to check levels of other hormones like cortisone and thyroid hormone, to assure that the proper balance of hormones is achieved.
  • DHEA is considered a drug by some researchers and is banned in the United Kingdom and Canada.
  • DHEA supplementation is contraindicated in those with prostate, breast, uterine, and other hormone-sensitive cancers and when liver dysfunction exists.
Factoids
  • DHEA is synthesized in the adrenal cortex in the region known as the "zona reticularis."
  • Cholesterol is the precursor of DHEA.
  • DHEA is metabolized in the adrenal gland into both androgens and estrogens.
  • Pure vegetarians and lactovegetarians have higher serum DHEA levels than non-vegetarians, at least prior to menopause.
  • DHEA levels are lower in cases of anorexia nervosa and depression.

Cautionary Trial February 3, 2014
Reviewer: Echosyn from Dallas, TX United States  
After reading much about this I decided to give it a cautionary trial as an adjunct with Goathead, Saw Palmetto and Ginseng to keep my 66 year old self tuned up. I presently rate it good simply because Our Health has produced consistently good products. Their customer service and knowledge is about as good as it gets.

1-31-2015: It works. GRIN! Put me back in tune -it did.
