What is DHEA?

DHEA , Hormone ,

Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a hormone that your body naturally produces in the adrenal gland. DHEA helps produce other hormones, including testosterone and estrogen.

Natural DHEA levels peak in early adulthood and then slowly decline with age. A synthetic version of DHEA is available as a tablet, capsule, powder, cream, and gel. People use DHEA as an anti-aging therapy and to improve physical performance. DHEA is also used to treat depression and symptoms of menopause.

The positive effects of DHEA include:

  • Slowing the aging process
  • Improving the sense of well-being
  • Increasing testosterone levels
  • Restoring muscle mass
  • Improving body fat percentage
  • Improving memory
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Improving bone mineral density
  • Promoting flexibility
  • Increasing endurance
  • Reducing the risk of sexual dysfunction
  • Treatment of depression
  • Improving vaginal dryness in post-menopausal women

Why is a low level of DHEA harmful?

DHEA (and its sulfate, DHEAS) appear to protect the brain from stress. It is also protective of the heart. It is helpful in fighting colitis and rheumatoid arthritis. It has been shown to be helpful in treating diabetes, cancer, and HIV infection, and improves oxygen utilization in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or asthma. It is a precursor to estrogen and testosterone, thus affecting libido and sexual function as well as energy levels. It appears to play a role in the prevention of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease, as well as cancer. In women, it increases bone density and heel bone thickness and reduces hot flashes during menopause. In men, it reduces fat around the waist. In summary, DHEA is an anti-aging hormone that has many effects on tissue health, not just brain function.”
