  • What is DHEA? It's also known as dehydroepiandrosterone‚ and is an important steroid hormone produced by your adrenal glands‚ which are located just above the kidneys. Afterwards‚ the body converts it into other needed hormones‚ such as androgens and estrogen; these hormones also support the metabolism of minerals and fats.

    One potential benefit of taking a supplement like DHEA 5 mg by Pure Encapsulations is support for immunity. DHEA may help your immune cells function healthily. Being less likely to get sick may also boost your mood: this product may also support mental well-being by promoting better memory and cognitive functioning.

    Men may also experience support for already healthy male sexual functioning. In some cases‚ DHEA may provide additional support for a healthy lean muscle mass to fat ratio when combined with nutrition and an active lifestyle.

    The human body's natural production of DHEA typically peaks at the age of 25. However‚ that doesn't mean that you have to accept the negative changes you may feel due to getting older. With higher energy levels‚ you can keep doing the things you love throughout your lifetime.

    Finally‚ DHEA may provide support for bone and joint strength. It may spur increased production of healthier‚ more flexible collagen proteins while working to balance levels of the enzymes that may protect cartilage. As a result‚ breaks‚ falls‚ pain‚ and stiffness may be less likely.

    Each vegetarian capsule provides five milligrams of DHEA derived from wild yams‚ which can provide a mild boost of energy. The DHEA in this supplement has been micronized to promote better absorption.

    Take one or two capsules per day with meals‚ in divided doses. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' DHEA 5 mg should last from one to two months.

    Pure Encapsulations seeks to formulate and manufacture high-quality‚ hypoallergenic dietary supplements. Quality control during the formulation and manufacturing process is paramount. All Pure Encapsulations products are made with the most bioavailable ingredients possible.

    Truly pure!

    DHEA has no other/inactive ingredients that really arent. That is nothing else to bother the system. I can only take a little bit of DHEA and this dosage has been great for me.

    Great Product

    My NMD recommended I start on a low dosage of DHEA to assist in balancing my adrenals along with other hormonal imbalances. I have been taking DHEA for 3 weeks and along with other supplements I have been feeling great!

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Using to fine tune dose

    I already take the 10 mg of DHEA from Pure Encapsulations and very happy with that product. Saliva testing showed I need to up the dosage so I ordered the 5 mg size. May just raise 2 1.2 mg by dividing this 5 mg size in half but not sure about that yet.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Its Ok

    I have only started taking DHEA 5 mg a few weeks ago. I am finding that my skin has become very oily. I have done some research that this is fairly normal for DHEA 5 mg. Im not sure that I love it at this point.

    5 MG DOSAGE IS PERFECT

    I tested low for DHEA (I am a female in my 50s) and Doctor recommended DHEA 5mg. 5 mg dosage is perfect for me and has helped. Higher dosages make me feel too angry and I thank Pure Formulations for offering this lower dosage and I always buy Pure Encapsulations brand when I can it really is superior in my opinion.

    Pros

      low dosage

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
