As you age‚ your body undergoes a number of physical and biological changes. One change that affects everyone is the steadily decreasing level of dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) after age 25. By the time you turn 70‚ your DHEA levels will be up to 80 percent lower.

Why does this matter? DHEA is a hormone that's produced in your body’s adrenal glands and used to make androgen and estrogen‚ a male and female hormone respectively (although each gender contains different levels of both). Decreased levels of sex hormones in your body can have wide-reaching health effects; bone loss and decreased libido are associated with low levels of these hormones. Meanwhile‚ women also know that menopause is spurred by the gradual loss of estrogen.

Decreased DHEA levels are also displayed in people of all ages with serious health conditions. Even vegetarians seem susceptible to decreased levels of DHEA.

Research has shown that DHEA has a positive effect on the treatment of adrenal insufficiency and mild sadness. Researchers are examining the connection between DHEA levels and aging‚ weight gain‚ and inflammatory bowel disease. Clearly‚ DHEA is a hormone critical to the healthy functioning of your body.

Pregnenolone is another hormone precursor that decreases with age. It's important because your body uses it to produce DHEA. Pregnenolone is also necessary for healthy nervous system functioning.

Douglas Laboratories’ DHEA Plus contains both DHEA and pregnenolone of the highest purity. The 100-capsule bottle will last between 50 and 100 days when taken at the recommended dose of one to two capsules daily. DHEA Plus should not be used by anyone under the age of 18‚ or by pregnant or breastfeeding women.
