Typical Uses: Help support normal production of testosterone, estrogen, and adrenal hormones.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is one of the hormones made in the human body by the adrenal glands. DHEA circulates in the bloodstream as DHEA-sulfate and is converted as needed into other hormones. DHEA serves as the precursor to male and female sex hormones (androgens and estrogens). The body’s natural production of DHEA begins to decrease after age 30. DHEA levels are reported to be low in some people with anorexia, end-stage kidney disease, type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent diabetes), adrenal insufficiency, and in the critically ill. DHEA levels may also be depleted by a number of drugs, including insulin, corticosteroids, opiates, and danazol. Pure DHEA that has been micronized to a very small particle size to facilitate absorption is provided in these 50 mg vegetarian capsules.
