A dietary supplement to help maintain normal levels of the DHEA hormone.
DHEA is an important adrenal hormone that supports healthy aging. DHEA levels decline with age and adrenal stress. DHEA supports immune system and thyroid function, as well as memory and energy function.
About DHEA (Dehydroepiandrosterone)
DHEA is a steroid hormone produced from cholesterol by the adrenal glands. It is the most abundant steroid in the bloodsream and is present at even higher levels in brain tissues.
DHEA is a precursor to many steroid sex hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. With age, DHEA production declines usually peaking by the age of 25-30 and gradually falling to a decline of 90% by age 60.
How DHEA works
DHEA seems to increase IGF-1 levels (insulin growth factor) and reduce cortisol. IGF-1 is the hormone or growth stimulating metabolite produced by the metabolism of HGH, and is responsible for the beneficial effects of elevated human growth hormone. Cortisol is a stress hormone and with aging there is a decline in DHEA and an elevation of cortisol. High and prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects such as: impaired cognitive performance and suppressed thyroid function, blood sugar imbalances, decreased bone density and a decrease in muscle tissue, higher blood pressure and lowered immunity.
Elevating DHEA levels is a way to help manage high cortisol levels and improve IGF-1 production.
Studies have shown that supplementing with DHEA may benefit: the immune system, blood sugar metabolism and weight management, brain and bone health, heart health, estrogen and testosterone levels.
Factors that contribute to low DHEA levels include: aging, sugar, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, nutritional imbalance, a vegetarian diet low in cholesterol and healthy fats.
