DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone that's naturally produced by the adrenal glands with levels naturally dropping after age 30. Some DHEA is converted into the major male and female sex hormones; testosterone and estrogen.
Low DHEA levels are associated with aging and a number of diseases, such as anorexia, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and depression.
Researchers have discovered possible benefits linked to DHEA:
-Building the body's adrenal gland
-Supporting the immune system
-Providing more energy
-Increasing bone and muscle strength
-Promoting nerve growth
-Enhancing mood and memory
-Preventing cell death
-Helps slow down the signs of aging
-Enhancing sexual desire, performance and satisfaction
