Description Ingredients
 
DHEA, dehydroepiandrosterone - an anti-aging hormone - is a naturally-occurring phospholipid nutrient, a steroid hormone naturally produced by the adrenal glands. DHEA is called “The Master Hormone” because it is a precursor for the manufacture of fifty other hormones from the adrenal glands. DHEA is responsible for the maintenance of many body functions such as fat and mineral metabolism, controlling stress and maintaining male and female characteristics.

Research has found DHEA to have significant anti-obesity, anti-aging, anti-stress, anti-PMS, anti-menopause and anti-cancer effects. Forty thousand medical studies and articles regarding DHEA have shown that low DHEA levels correlate to increased risk of cancer, heart disease, osteoporosis, obesity, diabetes and premature aging. When DHEA levels are raised, age-related problems seem to begin to disappear.

From WebMD 10/2014:
DHEA is a hormone that is naturally made by the human body. DHEA is used for slowing or reversing aging, improving thinking skills in older people, and slowing the progress of Alzheimer’s disease. DHEA is also used by men for erectile dysfunction (ED), and by healthy women and women who have low levels of certain hormones to improve well-being and sexuality. Athletes and others use DHEA to increase muscle mass, strength, and energy. (DHEA use is banned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association.)

Some people try DHEA to treat systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), weak bones (osteoporosis), multiple sclerosis (MS), low levels of steroid hormones (Addison’s disease), depression, schizophrenia, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), and to slow the progression of Parkinson’s disease. It is also used for preventing heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

DHEA is used for weight loss, for boosting the immune system and for decreasing the symptoms of menopause. Women who have passed menopause sometimes use DHEA inside the vagina for strengthening the walls of the vagina and for increasing bone mineral density. People with HIV sometimes use DHEA to ease depression and fatigue.

DHEA is being investigated and may eventually be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a prescription drug for treating systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and improving bone mineral density in women with lupus who are taking steroid drugs for treatment. The FDA is still studying the pharmaceutical company’s application for approval.

How does it work?
DHEA is a “parent hormone” produced by the adrenal glands, near the kidneys and in the liver. In men, DHEA is also secreted by the testes. It is changed in the body to a hormone called androstenedione. Androstenedione is then changed into the major male and female hormones.

DHEA levels seem to go down as people get older. DHEA levels also seem to be lower in people with certain conditions like depression. Some researchers think that replacing DHEA with supplements might prevent some diseases and conditions.

From MayoClinic.org:
DHEA levels in the body begin to decrease after age 30. Levels decrease more quickly in women. Lower DHEA levels are found in people with hormonal disorders, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, depression, diabetes, inflammation, immune disorders, and osteoporosis.
